The Everest view trek is designed for those looking to explore the Khumbu Region on a shorter trek while incorporating all aspects of local culture, customs and lifestyles of the Sherpa people. Passing along the foothills of Everest, the maximum altitude is 3870 meters and is an excellent way to explore the region without having to travel at high altitudes. We will pass through the classic monastery route to Tengpoche, which offers stunning panoramic views of the Himalayan giants including the best views of Ama Dablam known as the “Matterhorn of Khumbu”. This trek is perfect for time constrained adventure seekers or those who prefer not to make steep ascents while immersing themselves in the beauty of Everest and the mystery and spiritualism of the Khumbu people.
