Everest Panorama Trek
Usually the trekkers have short period of their holidays and prefer to experience the Mt. Everest “The Roof of the World”, as closer as possible from their bear eyes. When they do not have enough time to reach in Everest Base camp, we have the best choice for them to select the Everest Panorama Trek. Everest Panorama trek is one of the perfect treks to explore most beautiful elements of the Khumbu, experiencing some of the unique culture, fauna and flora of the Himalayas.
The Everest Panorama Trek begins after a 35 minutes scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the unique Sherpa Town in Khumbu Region. From Lukla, you start your walk toward the path along with the side of Dudh Koshi River to reach Phakding for your first overnight stop in Mountain, before you make your way up to Namche Bazaar, a trading outpost where the Tibetan and Nepalese people sell their wares. You have an extra day at Namche to get a view of Everest, surrounding mountains and walk up to Khumjung village where the "Yeti Scalp" is kept in a Monastery there. This can be a test to experience a Himalayan trekking Holiday.
Namche Bazaar is a village in the Khumbu region of Nepal, which is one of the major attractions of the Everest Panorama Trek. Namche is located at 3,440 meters; it is a gateway to the high Himalayas. Namche Bazaar is the administrative center for the Khumbu region. The village has many hotels and shops where one can make their stay more enjoyable and find anything required for trekking. In the rest day in Namche Bazaar one can make a excursion to the small air steep to Syangboche and can visit a Everest view hotel from where you can get a close up view of the world’s greatest mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Thamserku, Tawache and many other unnamed mountains and peaks.
