Everest Panorama Trek - 10 Days

Everest Panorama Trek

Everest Panorama Trek, although relatively easy compared to some of the other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). This is a short trek but very scenic trek offers a really superb view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and other many snowy peaks. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. This trek is a great introduction to Sherpa country and its culture with great mountain views, a very popular destination for first-time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is best suited for those who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Best Time For Everest Panorama Trekking

The best time for EBC trek is Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September – November). During these seasons, the weather remains quite stable with the bearable temperatures. And you will experience the clearest views of the mountains under the crisp sky in the less humid surrounding. During winter lots of snow may make the trails to higher altitudes difficult. Plus, many teahouses may remain closed in the higher altitudes. While during summer, the trail becomes wet because of rain. And the dense fog may obstruct the mountains views. Despite tougher climatic conditions, if you pack well and make yourself ready to face any hurdles then you can trek in these of-seasons as well. So, the trek to EBC is doable all year round.

Everest Panorama Trek Difficulty

Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in the world and trekking to its base camp is an adventure in itself. Trekking to Everest Base Camp requires a good level of fitness and strong determination to challenge the changing mountain weather. On this trek, you will ascend to the maximum height 5555 meters at Kala Patthar. So, there could be many instances of altitude sickness. And, since the mountain weather is quite unpredictable you may witness varying and unfavorable weather conditions that may add hurdles to your trek. Plus, the mountainside routes are full of boulders and the rugged terrains with the sloppy terrains and uphill climbs. The geography, weather and the altitude may create difficulty to the trek. But if you prepare well and come physically and mentally prepared then you can beat any type of difficulty on the trek.
