Trip Overview

Everest View Trek is a special package, carefully designed to meet the expectations of those travel enthusiasts who don’t have time or are not fit enough to make it to the Everest Base Camp. During this trip, you will trek up to Namche (acclimatization altitude), from where you will see the gleaming Everest peak with other countless anonymous ranges. This view is just incredible. But, if you have both time and spirit, then skip the Everest View Trek and go for Everest Base Camp Trek. The views grow more beautiful as you gain altitude.

With its scenic natural beauty, smiling hospitable people and rich cultural heritage, Mt. Everest, along with the entire Everest region, is a much-admired trekking destination. In fact, Everest is one of the few places on Earth, where the whole of humanity wants to step in, at least for a few minutes. It is the center of global attraction. While this is true, we can’t deny the fact that this region is also blessed with the presence of unique flora and fauna, which can make your expedition more thrilling.

Going all the way to the base camp of Mt. Everest or Everest Base Camp (EBC) might not be something that everybody can do in their free time as they might not have the required number of days in their holidays to reach there and return back in time. Also, an entire trek to Everest Base Camp is a bit challenging in itself. So, for the people who don’t want to go for a trek all the way up to 5,340 meters above sea level and explore the EBC, they can simply choose a much simpler trek. And that trek is our Everest View Trek.

If you take a look at our itinerary, you will see that it only takes about 8 days to finish the entire trek. What’s more, is that you will even be able to watch the awe-inspiring views of Mt. Everest with plenty of time at your disposal by hiking to Everest View Hotel from Namche Bazaar.

Best time to go for Everest View Trek

Generally, monsoon is considered to be the worst season to kick off on any trek; so is the case here. It is because the trail becomes slippery and climbing up the steep terrain becomes challenging due to rainwater. Also, in Nepal, summer blends with the monsoon, so it is better to ignore summer as well.

Winter, on the other hand, is frosty in Everest. The temperature might plummet to -20oC, which is, apparently freezing. But still, Everest view Trek can be attempted in Winter because you are not climbing as high as Lobuche or Gorakshep. Your maximum elevation is 3440 m, so winter can be a time when you can go trekking on Everest.

However, the best season to go for Everest View Trek is during Autumn and Spring, in terms of temperature and trail. But, among them, spring is the best season. During Spring, rhododendron blooms, and the surrounding will be filled with colors and the pleasant smell of the flowers.

To conclude, go for the Everest view Trek in Spring.

Yes, a hot shower is available in most of the lodges on the EBC trails however people do not take shower every day on the Everest view trek as most people take shower only a few times such as in Namche, and Lukla and the cost of the shower are from 300.00 to 600.00 NPR. The cost may increase with elevation.

Yes, most of the hotels/teahouses of most of the camps/villages have electric power to charge your electric and electronic devices. Some places offer solar system power so, there is not enough power to charge your stuff so, and we advise you to have some spare batteries on our Everest view trek.

Yes, Travel Insurance is mandatory for the Everest view trek. Although this is a lower elevated trek, of course, there is some risk on this trek so, you need to have a travel insurance policy that covers the emergency evacuation as the Helicopter is only the means of transport you back to the city/Kathmandu and Hospital in case of any accident happened on your trek or get any sickness including high altitude sickness.

In fact, you don’t need to be a mountaineer or athlete to succeed in the journey. If you are reasonably fit, have a spirit of mountain journey, and like walking, you are always qualified for any trekking in Nepal. It is a short, easy, and family trek; you do not need any previous experience. Some of the physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before you embark on the journey are beneficial to success the journey.

Normally, the trekking duration is determined by the type and place of trekking that you have chosen. However, in this trek trekkers need to hike for 5-6 hours a day. And you will normally climb about 500m of altitude per day.

Trekking in the Everest region, we need to stay in local tea houses and lodges. Most of the accommodations will be on the basis of twin sharing, especially in the peak months. Single rooms are available but it may cost extra.

During the trial, you can enjoy both national and international foods and cuisines like Tibetan, Continental, Italian, and Indian. Typical Nepali ethnic foods are mind-blowing. You can also enjoy other foods like hot chocolates, drinks of different varieties, and slices of bread and snacks.

Breakfasts and dinner will be served at the same hotel/tea houses where you spend the night, according to the menu. Lunch will be served at the next destination. Trekkers enjoy the farewell dinner in one of the cultural restaurants in Kathmandu in full Nepali style.

If you search ‘when should I visit Nepal? You get the readymade answer spring and autumn. They are most popular because of the clear weather, fewer chances of precipitation or snowfall, spectacular views, and lustrous landscapes.

However, the Everest view trek is favorable in winter too. In these months, the teahouses are almost vacant and you have a plethora of choices for accommodation, the views are excellent and the landscapes look magnificent. Less number of trekkers on the routes makes the trekking destinations less crowded. You even get affordable prices in the offseason.

Awesome Trip to Everest

At first, it was very difficult for me to choose a genuine company, because there are a lot of companies outside in the internet, each of them boasting themselves as the best. Among them, I shortlisted and communicated to few companies. While doing so, the response that I got from the Holy Mountain Treks was pretty clear, and they seemed to know more about Everest. So, I went on my trip with this company.

Now, I feel very lucky to choose Holy Mountain Treks for guiding my trip to Everest View Trek. My guide Ram Chandra was very helpful, and he knew a lot about the place. He took me to the Everest View Point at Namche and monasteries that are around the Namche. I didn’t have time, so I returned from Namche. But, next time, I promise to go up to Everest Base Camp. Thank you, Ram Chandra, for everything. Also, many many thanks to Holy Mountain Treks. You all had been amazingly helpful.

Beautiful!!!! Pooja took amazing care of us and was so friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. She has a lot of knowledge about mountains, flora, and fauna and is very informative. It was my first visit to Nepal so I was worried but Parshu and his team managed everything perfectly. We trekked through the Sherpa villages, national parks, and greeneries with amazing views. An aerial view of Everest and its neighboring peaks was breathtaking. Although I had a short time in Nepal, I enjoyed whole the trip. So, I would highly recommend Parshu and his team for any kind of trip to Nepal.

Fantastic views, Amazing people

I and my mother completed Everest view trek with Holy Mountain Treks in March 2019. Parshu, the owner responded my email quickly and assisted us organizing and cooperating our trekking plan to Everest. As my mother could not complete Everest base camp trek, we chose this one. My guide Puja was awesome. She understood us briskly and took our care in every moment. She was very experienced and knowledgeable with trekking but were also a wealth of information about the culture and customs in Nepal. Krishna, our porter was very helpful and kind. we got insight about the Himalayan Sherpas and their lifestyle. We explored Namche and other Sherpa villages where ever smiling and hospitable people welcomed well. In Sagarmatha National Park, we could see plenty of flora and fauna including rhododendron hills. Moreover, the view of Everest and other peaks was magnificent. The farewell dinner was excellent!!! Recommended.

Ich war im April 2019 für kurze Zeit in Nepal. Ich wollte den Everest besuchen. Da mir nicht viel Zeit zur Verfügung stand, wollte ich die Region aus der Nähe sehen. Also entschied ich mich und kontaktierte eine der Trekkingfirmen, mit denen ich zuvor zusammengearbeitet hatte, Holy Mountain Treks. Sie schlugen den Everest View Trek vor, der einfach perfekt für die kürzere Zeitnutzung in der Mount Everest Region war. Die kurze Wanderung von Namche nach Tengboche über Hängebrücken war der beste Teil. Die Aussicht auf Ama Dablam und den Mount Everest - den höchsten Berg der Welt - war der größte Anblick. Die Menschen vor Ort und das Kloster zu beobachten, ist definitiv etwas Unermessliches als erwartet. Ich empfehle allen Holy Mountain Trek und Ram als Guide, die eine kurze Wanderung entlang der Everest Region in Nepal unternehmen möchten.

Perfect Weather: Excellent View

I was short on time and wanted to explore the Everest region instantly. I chose 8 Days Everest View Trek after a short interaction with Parashu Ram Nepal. He is a very helpful, informative, and knowledgeable person and arranged every Nitty-gritty for my trek. My guide Krishna was excellent with a plethora of information on Nepalese Himalayas, culture, and people. A short flight to Lukla was just WOW! I could see the mountain peaks, valleys, rivers, and entire hills from the pane of the aircraft. We spent a couple of days reaching Namche Bazaar from Lukla following the beautiful canyon of Dudh Koshi River. Namche Bazaar is a busy town with a lot of facilities Standing at Everest View Hotel, I could see vivid sceneries of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and a couple of others. Exploring all, we get back to Namche and Lukla in another two days. Perfect Trek! Thank you Holy Mountain Treks, especially Krishna as a guide who made my trip memorable for a lifetime. See you again!
