Everest Panorama Trek 1 (10N\11D)
With eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, Nepal is packed full with spectacular mountains vistas. The Everest trek is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8848 m), but also for its friendly Sherpa people, colorful festivals and monasteries. The flora and the fauna provided another attraction of the Sagarmatha National Park. The legend of the Yeti is also still a mystery to the world and one which originated in the Khumbu region.

Kathmandu city sightseeing (1315m)
Today we explore the Kathmandu valley. SWOYAMBBHUNATH: Climb the many steps to Swayambhunath (the monkey temple) with its commanding views of Kathmandu, its whitewashed stupas and its unique synthesis of Buddhism and Hinduism. PASHUPATINATH: It’s a sacred temple complex on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Here, monkeys run up and down the steps of the burning ghats, and trident-bearing saddhus draped in burnt-orange and yellow sit serenely meditating - when they are not posing for photos for rupees. BOUDHANATH: The striking Buddha eyes of Boudhanath Stupa watch over a lively and colorful Tibetan community and attract pilgrims from all over the Himalayan Buddhist realm. In the midst of traditional gompas, and hung with long strings of multi-colored prayer flags, Boudhanath attracts Sherpas, Tibetans and tourists alike for daily circumambulations (koras) of the stupa.
Flight to Lukla (2804 meters), trek to Phakding (2610 meters) 3 hours
An early morning start takes us to Kathmandu Airport for the 35 minute flight to Lukla (2804m). On arrival at Lukla airport our guide will brief us and introduce our porters before we begin our trek towards Phakding (2610m)
Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3441 meters) 5.30 hours
The trail follows the DudhKosi before climbing to Chomoa, through magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. Further long the track we cross the KyasharKhola before entering the Sagarmatha National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site, where we may be fortunate enough to see Himalayan tahr, musk deer and impeyan pheasants. Inside the park, the trail makes a steep descent to again follow the DudhKosi before the long climb to Namche.
Namche Bazaar Acclimatization day.
Namche Bazaar, a relatively large village is known as the Gateway to Everest. We will spend a day here in order to acclimatize to the altitude. We have the opportunity to visit a museum celebrating the traditional customs of the Sherpa people. We can also hike up the SyangbocheAirport, and around Everest View Hotel. From this point, we can see rewarding views of the Himalayas with a stunning sunrise or sunset over the panorama of the Khumbu peaks.
Namche Bazaar to Tengboche Monastery (3860 meters) – 5 hours
It takes about five hours. You leave the village for a climb to the top of a ridge and level mountain path that offers an excellent panorama of Thamserku, Kantega, and KusumKanguru. To the right there is a steep cliff that drops down to the DudhKosi, faintly visible on the valley floor below. As you make your way around a branch ridge, AmaDablam (6812m) Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse (7855m) and Tawoche (6501m) suddenly appear. After a gentle descent the mountain path ends; you will come to the fork leading to Gokyo. Now you descend past two tea houses and through the village of Trashinga. Though you cannot see it, you can hear the DudhKosi and soon you descend to the river and arrive at PhunkiTenga. It is a long climb to Tyangboche; the first half is especially steep. As you climb through the forested zone, the incline eases and a splendid view appears. Continue climbing the mountainside diagonally until you come to the stone gate built by lamas which marks your entry into Tyangboche (3867m). You may use the large plateau in front of the splendid monastery as your campsite. There are a lodge and hotel managed by the National Park Service. Tyangboche is an important lookout point on this course, and the sunset on Everest and AmaDablam is especially beautiful.
