Everybody wants a glimpse of the world’s highest mountain and that’s the reason why the Everest Base Camp Trek is so popular. The trek has a number of stunning attractions, not least of these is being able to say you’ve visited the highest mountain in the world. There are some lovely villages and gompas (monasteries), and the friendly Sherpa people of the Solu Khumbu region make trekking through the area a joy.
Everest Panorama Trekking is primarily for those trekkers who have limited time to spend but would like to view the Everest first hand, including other mountains in the Khumbu region. This trekking is also known as Everest View Trekking; it offers magnificent view of world’s highest Mt. Everest with other mountains such as Mountain. Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, et al.
The final destination of this trekking is Tengboche, a place from where you can have panoramic views of the Himalayas of Nepal. Panorama Everest Base Camp Trek starts from Luka as we move passed Phakding and Namche Bazaar. We visit the local markets of Namche Bazaar and explore Khumbu High School set up by Late Sir Edmund Hillary during our trek. Everest view trekking is suitable for all types of trekkers as well as couples, families and children.

Two clients share one porter. We will supply you with a trek duffel bag where you keep your heavy items and this bag is carried by the porter. You will need to bring your own daypack to be carried by you. In the daypack, you can put money, important documents, water bottle/bladder, camera, toiletries, sunscreen, notebook, etc.
The weight limit for Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flights is 15 kg or 33 pounds. This is combining both the duffel bag and the daypack. If you exceed this limit, you will have to pay an additional fee.
