Everest Panorama Trekking
Short trek in the Everest region with mind-blowing scenery & unbelievable vistas
The Everest Region is one of the most popular trekking areas of Nepal. Home to Mount Everest and other high mountain peaks, the region is the land of Sherpas – the famed climbers. Hence, the Everest Panorama Trekking is one of the most popular trekking trails. It allows you to experience the warm Sherpa hospitality and breathtaking views of mountains, villages, and rivers. Also, Sherpa settlements like Namche Bazaar, Phakding, Lukla, Mongla Danda, and Tengboche are brimming with tourists in peak season. Everest Panorama Trek is suitable who are unable to go to Everest Base Camp because of altitude, time, or other reasons.
The trek begins with a short yet exciting flight to the Lukla airstrip from Kathmandu. The trip is adventurous, taking you through tall mountains and deep canyons. Furthermore, Tenzing-Hillary Airport is one of the most extreme airports globally for many. The Everest Panorama Trekking starts from the small Sherpa town of Lukla. Our crew joins you here with all the necessary equipment. After lunch, the trek progresses toward Phakding, on the banks of Dudhkoshi River, where we stop for the night.
From Phakding, we reach Jorsalle, where the confluence of the Dudhkoshi and Bhotekoshi rivers greets us. After crossing the river on a suspension bridge, a steep climb of about an hour from Jorsalle will take us to Namche Bazaar. Here, we stay for two days to acclimatize to the higher altitude. Also, our crew organizes short hikes to the world-famous Everest View Hotel or the Khumjung village for acclimatization.
From Namche Bazaar, the trek moves towards Mongla Danda, a small Sherpa village seated atop a hill. The place offers picturesque and panoramic high mountains, including the majestic Everest. Further, you can see the sea of clouds down in the valley. The trek continues to Tengboche – the spiritual village in the Everest region. The most noteworthy attraction of Tengboche is the famous Tengboche Monastery. While in this village, prayer chants wake you up in the morning. Here, you can get an opportunity to observe the Mani Rimdu festival. Many mountaineers respect local culture and offer special worship at the monastery before attempting mountains.
Leaving Tengboche, you descend to Namche and then to Lukla via Phakding. The next day, you take a flight back to Kathmandu. Book this Everest Panorama Trek with Peregrine Treks & Tours to enjoy the best of the Everest Region. Peregrine offers you warm hospitality at the best price.

The Everest Panorama Trek is a moderate-difficult trek that people of all ages and experience levels can enjoy. Our company has taken the time to craft an itinerary that allows plenty of time for acclimatization in Namche so that all trekkers can take in the stunning scenery and wildlife of the area.
On a typical day, expect to spend an average of 5-6 hours on the move, taking in the astounding views of the Himalayan Mountains. This can be challenging for some, but the ever-changing landscape and the region’s sheer beauty make it an unforgettable trek. From the snow-capped mountains to the lush valleys, there is something new to discover each day.
The Everest panorama trek is an exciting opportunity that can be experienced all year round. Our company provides this trek no matter the season, offering adequate support and a memorable experience. However, suppose you want to truly appreciate the region’s beauty and observe the local culture without any weather-related obstacles. In that case, Spring from March to May and Autumn from September to November are the ideal times for the trek.
During these periods, the trails of the Everest Region indeed come alive with a plethora of wildflowers in bloom and colorful rhododendrons dotting the verdant landscape. The clear, crisp sky and fresh air make for a pleasant, invigorating journey – and the temperatures are just suitable for a long and leisurely trek.
For those in the region around October, you can witness and celebrate the Mani Rimdu festival – the most important festival in the Everest region. Held in the monasteries of Tengboche, Chiwong, and Thame, this festival is a week-long affair full of vibrant colors and cultural traditions.
Trekking in the winter, from December to February, is also an ideal time to go, as the trails are blanketed with a layer of glistening snow, giving breathtaking views of dazzling white snow and glittering Christmas lights. The sun setting on the horizon creates a magical winter wonderland with its golden orange hues. Even though the journey is cold and chilly, the sun’s warmth, the joy of being surrounded by snow, and the serene feeling of being in the wilderness can be nothing short of spiritually uplifting.
The summer and rainy season from June to August can bring a different beauty, with the vegetation coming to life as the rain falls and the fog rolls in. Although the trails are slippery and the fog can make visibility a challenge, the lush greens and vibrant colors of the plants and trees bring a unique atmosphere unlike any other time of year. Whether you prefer the excitement of icy trails or the serenity of a summery rainforest, Everest Panorama trekking in any season is a rewarding experience.
With the altitude being lower than most treks, there is less chance of altitude sickness. However, it is still possible, and it is imperative to take the necessary precautions, such as staying hydrated, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and trekking slowly.
Make sure to make the most of your acclimatization day! If you start to feel uncomfortable or off in any way, inform your guide right away. The day is not just for fun but for ensuring your body is used to the high altitudes. Don’t wander too far from the group or your guide so they can always come to your aid if needed. Even though your mind may tell you to forget the rules and explore, remember that your safety should always come first.
Every morning in the Everest Panorama trek starts bright and early, with the sound of the boiling kettle for a hot cup of tea or coffee and a delicious, hearty breakfast surrounded by the most stunning views.
On any given day, you can expect to hike for around five to six hours, although trekking from Tengboche to Monjo may require you to take seven to eight grueling hours of trekking. But don’t worry; you will have the opportunity to take an hour-long break for lunch in the middle of the day, allowing you to take in the surrounding sights, snap some photos, and savor a delicious meal.
No matter the season you decide to trek, the trail provides stunning sceneries, fascinating wildlife, and an up-close experience with local culture. As you journey through the winding paths, you will be captivated by the majestic beauty of nature surrounding you. You will feel the crisp breeze caress your face and the gentle sunlight tickle your skin.
After a lunch break, you will embark on the next leg of your journey, exploring the fascinating expanse of nature and the hearty hospitality of the locals. As the day draws closer, you will be welcomed into a serene lodge or rustic teahouse, where the warm ambiance will help you relax and unwind. You can savor a delicious dinner prepared carefully while gazing out the window at the star-filled night sky.
After your meal, you can sit back and enjoy a cup of lemon/honey tea or coffee while listening to the crackling of the fireplace and the gentle sounds of nature outside. In this peaceful moment, you can forget all your troubles and be content.
