Everest Panorama trek begins with the 35 minute early morning flight from Kathmandu to the Tenzing-Hillary airport at Lukla (2642m). After breakfast and handover of luggage to the porters, we trek to Phakding through farmlands and the Sherpa heritage villages where you will begin to meet the local peoples and observe their culture, beliefs and way of living.
Trekking in Everest region to Namche Bazaar, the largest town and business hub of the region, takes you to an altitude of over 3000m and thus calls for a day to acclimatize. Prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls and ancient Monasteries testify to the importance of Buddhism in the Sherpa’s lives. An easy short hiking of the large Sherpa village Khumjung and walks to places of interest and with magnificent mountain vistas above the village assists in this process.
Mount Everest trekking to Tengboche takes you to your highest point and a plateau that overlooks the surrounding countryside against the backdrop of the imposing Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Thamserku and the Everest group. Enjoy its hospitality and explore the famous monastery, the Jandanma Kharka (Yak grazing Land) and the rhododendron forests. Absolutely photographer’s paradise! Spring and Autumn are the best season to trek, though Mountain Mart Trek-adventure team make it happen four season comfortably. The return journey via Monjo allows you to sleep at a lower altitude for greater comfort.
