Description

Making a brief circuit through the heart of the Himalayas, the 9-day Everest View Trek is the best way for visitors with time restrictions to get out into the Nepalese wilderness and see this iconic mountain!

In fact, the trek is among our most popular options and makes for the ideal adventure holiday for those who do not have the time to make the slightly longer Everest Base Camp trek.

The adventure begins after you fly into Kathmandu and transfer to the hotel. The following morning, we’ll head right to the airport and fly to Lukla, where the real fun begins.

From this small mountain town, we will spend the next two days trekking toward the famed settlement of Namche Bazaar, enjoying the  incredible scenes of mountains and woodlands en route.

It is here that we will receive our first views of Mount Everest. As we continue to approach the world’s highest peak, the views will continue to get better.

The climax of the trip comes shortly after as we hike up to Tyangboche monastery, which at 4,100 meters is the highest one in the world.

From here, we take in even better views of Everest, Ama Dablam and many other iconic Himalayan peaks, before beginning our return to Lukla and then Kathmandu.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 9-day Everest View Trek through the heart of the Nepalese Himalayas!
