Everest View Trek Route

The trekking starts from Lukla where you reach via plane fight. You will walk along the almost flat terrain to reach Phakding and spend the night. You will then ascend toward Namche the other day and spend one more day there to acclimatize. The next day, you will go to Tengboche and spend the day there. You will then return back to Namche, Lukla, and Kathmandu following the same route as before. 

Everest View Trek Difficulty

Everest View Trek is considered to be a moderate plus. You need a somewhat high level of physical fitness during the trek. You will have to walk some steep hills during the trek. However, you will only have to spend 2/3 days at an altitude of over 3000 meters. So, the risk of altitude sickness is quite low. You will walk for 6 days with an average of 5/6 hours a day. You are recommended to be involved in cardio exercises, swimming, jogging, cycling for a minimum of 3 weeks before the trip.

Weather and Temperature of Everest View Trek 

The weather in the Everest region varies with seasons. Among all the seasons, spring and autumn are the best for trekking. The weather is generally nice and calm during these seasons. The views of the mountains and landscapes will also be great. The morning and evenings become a bit chilly but the temperature is bearable.

Unlike Everest Base Camp Trek, you can do this trek, even in winter. In fact, the winter rewards you with amazing views of the snowy landscapes. The temperature up to Tengboche is bearable even in winter. Summer is the least appropriate season of all as the weather is unpredictable and the views often get obstructed in this season.

Accommodation During the Everest View Trek

During the Everest View trekking, you will be staying in teahouses run by local Sherpas. They provide you with basic food and minimalistic accommodation services. These teahouses may lack in luxury but the hospitality of the people is always heartwarming and welcoming. These are nice opportunities to learn about their traditions and lifestyles.

Food and Water During the Everest View Trek

Tea houses along the way provide you with basic modern and local food items. You will be provided with three meals per day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Foods such as rice, vegetables, noodles, pasta, Dal Bhat, etc are provided in the teahouses. There are some cafes and bakeries in Namche Bazaar where you can buy some bakery items and beverages. You will also get to try traditional local dishes during the trek. It is always best to carry some dry snacks and energy bars along with you.

The teahouses you will be staying in let you refill your water bottles. They also let you have hot water but you need to pay the extra price for that. During the trek, you can drink tap water using a water purification pill.

    16 days trip to Everest Base Camp

    Mr Ram from Sublime Trails was very communicative and friendly from the start to the end of this adventure; we went to Everest Base Camp. We arrived in early September this year in Nepal. Mr Ram was at the airport to welcome us and also dropped us at the hotel.

    The flight to Lukla and hike to Namche Bazaar and Hotel Everest View was a fantastic hiking experience. My trek guide, Mr Shiva, was a very cheerful person. He was constantly asking us about how we were doing throughout the hike. He also did a fantastic job setting the base camp tent. Other trek crews and our chef for the base camp were also very wonderful and supportive.

    The feeling of sleeping close to Everest is indescribable. It was cold, but sleeping bags were good enough to warm us. Everything was excellent, and Sublime Trails well managed the logistics.

    I recommend anyone joining this trip to at least communicate with Sublime Trails and Mr Ram to check the availability of this trip. These guys are the absolute best for tour in Nepal

    Everest View Trek with my two teen sons. Enjoyed the trip to the fullest.

    My two sons wanted to visit Nepal as they had one guy from Nepal in the classroom. He told them that Nepal has the highest mountain in the world. So, in Spring, we went to Nepal and decided to go on a helicopter tour. But, it was off the charts for me to afford a trip to all three. So we decided to go Namche, see Everest and other mountains and make a safe return.
    There was one group from sublime trails who were going for Everest view trek. We three went with that group. I loved every place. Also, returning trekkers were not hesitant to chat with us. We saw Everest from the Hotel Everest View. It was a good experience. Thumbs up to the best service. My sons enjoyed this trip very much.
