The classic trek, second only to Everest itself, takes you on a four-day journey into the Dudh Kosi River (Khumbu) Valley to gaze upon mountains such as Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Amadablam. The main viewing point is the Everest View Hotel close by Khumjung village. You’ll get there via Lukla, returning the same way to complete this once in a lifetime adventure.
Lest you think Everest is the entire aim of the journey, know that the getting there is just as exciting. You walk through lush valleys with extraordinary river views, cross suspension bridges and appreciate the flora and fauna unique to Nepal.
Everest straddles Nepal and China. Despite the mighty mountain’s awesome reputation, the Everest View Trek is a short and fairly easy trail for this region. In addition to the landscape, scenery, culture and hospitality of the area, you’ll have the opportunity to experience views of many other nearby peaks many over 8,000 meters.
Your journey begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla itself sits at approximately 2,840 meters and serves as the access point for most of the Everest region treks. You’ll immediately set out through Sagarmatha National Park, viewing dense pine forests and rhododendron flowers. Day two takes you to Namche Bazar (3,440m), continuing on to Tengboche Monastery (3,860m) the highest Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region and a spiritual destination for many.
Your stop for the third day is traditional Sherpa village of Khumjung. Take some time to appreciate the quaint lifestyle, see serene Buddhist monasteries, take a photo with some rare yaks and visit the Hilary School.
After this, it’s time to head back to Lukla and enjoy the last, few final views of the beautiful Himalayan range.

Free day for preparation and sightseeing.
A magical scenic flight takes us to Lukla in the morning, and from there we begin the trek with a hike to the day's first destination, Phakding.
Our day starts by following the Dudh Koshi river and crossing over the Edmund Hillary suspension bridge, then heading towards Sagarmatha National Park and the checkpoint at Monjo. The path ascends markedly until it eventually leads us into Namche Bazaar, the regional capital for the Sherpa district.
This is an amazing day of our entire journey in term of exploring the tallest peak in the Earth. Namche is perfect for the situation, as there's plenty to do in the scenic town including visiting Khunde Hospital, the local medical facility set up through Edmund Hillary's charitable work in the area, taking in the panoramas from Everest View Hotel, calling in to the Sherpa Cultural Museum, or hiking up to Khumjung Valley and its monastery, complete with the display of its legendary Yeti scalp.
Our final day on the trail, easing into Lukla along the Dudhi Koshi and its suspension bridges. Once at Lukla we finally throw off our backpacks, take a relaxing shower, and sit back to savor the heady accomplishment of making it to the foot of Everest.
After breakfast we take a flight to Kathmandu where you'll have enough time to take in the city's treasures one last time before getting together for a final dinner with friends before leaving.
Farewell and drop-off at the airport, or the opportunity to join another of our programs.
