Everest Panorama Trek- 12 Days

The Everest Panorama Trek has a relaxed pace at a comfortable elevation.  This trek is ideal for those who want great views of Mount Everest without going as high as the Classic Trek to EBC. The itinerary for Everest Panorama Trek allows adequate time to acclimatize to the altitude, to savor the rich culture and enjoy the spectacular views of snow-capped peaks like Everest and Ama Dablam.

The Everest Panorama Trek follows the popular Everest Base Camp trail through an inspiring valley of green terraced fields, rhododendron and magnolia forests and Sherpa villages. The trail alongside the rushing Dudh Kosi River leads to the bustling Namche Bazaar, a main Sherpa junction in the region, where we stop to acclimatize for a day.  Namche has restaurants, internet cafes, bakeries and shops as well as great scenery to enjoy while we acclimatize. It is set in a natural basin surrounded by glistening snow-capped peaks and traditional villages.

Heading further up the valley through the forest, we arrive at the famous Buddhist monastery of Tengboche, 3850m, "The Great High Place" where climbers pause to seek blessings before they attempt to summit Everest. From Tengboche there are spectacular views of some of the world's highest mountains including Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tamserku and Kantega. These giant ice-walled mountains dominate the landscape and avalanches can frequently be heard rumbling high up the glaciers.

Many visitors choose to trek in the Khumbu Region to get a close up look at Everest, the world's highest peak, but they come away with something more -- an insight into the reality of the challenges that the brave Sherpas face living in this harsh but spectacular region. Income generated from the trekking industry in this remote region has improved access to the area and the standard of living for the people in this region. The simple stone lodges of the Sherpa people provide a comfortable and welcoming rest for weary trekkers.

The Everest Panorama Trek returns to Lukla via Khumjung, one of the largest Sherpa villages. The nearby Khunde Hospital and Khumjung School are both legacies of the famous Everest Summiter, Sir Edmund Hillary, who loved and generously helped this region when it was still extremely poor.

Ready to challenge yourself with an interesting climb of a 6000m peak? We organize exciting adventure climbs of Island Peak 6189m and Lobuche East Peak 6119m as an add on climb to any of the Everest region treks. We recommend our guests to do the Everest Base Camp Trek or Gokyo Valley and Everest Base Camp Trek or Khumbu Three High Passes Trek before attempting for either Island Peak or Lobuche East Peak.

Best Seasons for the Everest Panorama Trek

The best seasons for the Everest Panorama Trek are from September to November and from March to May. These months are known for sunny and warm weather and outstanding views. The summer months from June to August are also beautiful, but the trek can be affected by the monsoon rains.

Everest Panorama is a Tea House/Lodge Trek

Accommodation is included in the cost of your package. Annapurna Foothills Treks takes great care to arrange the most comfortable accommodation possible throughout your stay.

During the trek, the nights will be spent in clean and comfortable tea houses with plenty of character and good food. The simple rooms usually have two narrow beds. The family run lodges are a great place to get to know the Nepalese people. In Nepalese culture, a guest is equal to god, and surely this has become even more of a reality since the tourism industry has improved their meager opportunities to earn. You will be made very welcome!

Meals on the Everest Panorama Trek

Three meals a day are included during your Everest Panorama Trek. The menu will be fairly simple, but freshly cooked and hygienic. You can enjoy typical Nepali, Tibetan and Sherpa food, as well as all types of international cuisine. Dinners and breakfasts will be provided in the teahouse/lodge where you spend the night. Lunches will be eaten in a teashop on the way to the destination of the day.

Drinking Water on Everest Panorama Trek

We suggest that you drink boiled water or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. There is a small fee charged for the boiled water. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.


If you have a reasonable level of fitness, this trek should be more than manageable. The altitude becomes more noticeable the higher we go, so we walk at a slow pace and take plenty of breaks to rest and acclimatize.

Local Customs You Should Know About on the Everest Panorama Trek

Ethnic groups of the hilly and mountain regions are predominantly Buddhist, and you will see many mani stones, stupas, gumbas and prayer wheels. It is respectful to pass these objects with your right side nearest to the object, in a clockwise direction. Avoid sitting or standing on mani stones, stupas, tables used for worship or anything that is a religious symbol, as that is considered disrespectful.

Travel Insurance for Everest PanoramaTrek

Annapurna Foothills Treks strongly recommends you have sufficient insurance coverage to go into this remote area. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions Pvt. Ltd. can organize the appropriate medical response based on your policy.

Flight Delay/Cancellation

Domestic flights to mountain regions can be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather. Be aware that you may have long waits in the airports. From our side, if a flight is cancelled we make sure you get on the next possible flight.

If flight cancellations at the start of your trek delay your trek to the point of disturbing your onward travel schedule, you will be free to choose an alternative trip; there are many excellent options in the Annapurna, Langtang and other regions. If you do not wish to take an alternative trek, and wait in Kathmandu for the flight to Lukla, your original trek may be shortened due to the days lost in waiting. In such case, the client will be responsible to bear all additional expenses including food and accommodation.

If the client wishes to make an alternative arrangement such as a helicopter flight, Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions will assist in making the booking, but will not cover the cost of the alternative arrangement. The refunded money of the unused flight ticket would be credited to the concerned client, however.

There will be no refund for the days of the trek that are missed. You will not be entitled to any refund for services in the package (ie hotel, transport, flight) that you did not use due to the cancellation.

It is advisable to allow one or two extra days at the end of your trip to allow for flight delay/cancellation.

In an emergency, or upon request by our clients, a heli-rescue can be organized. The helicopter costs around USD 3500, and can lift 4-5 persons per flight.

If flight cancellations at the end of your trek delay your return to Kathmandu, you will be responsible for all your expenses during the wait in Lukla.
