Everest Panorama Trekking  |  9 Days

Everest Panorama Trek is a savior trek for those who are not ready for the Everest Base Camp Trek. As you know the Everest Base Camp(EBC) Trek is a long, demanding, and high-altitude trek. Not everyone can dare and do that trek. The trek tests its trekkers’ and challenges them in every step. If you are someone who is not set for the challenge of EBC Trek yet, don't get upset.

There is this Everest Panorama Trek that is a great fit for you. It grants you to explore and enjoy the Everest region at modest risk.

Also popular as Everest View Trek, the Everest Panorama Trek is the safest and easiest way to admire the Everest region’s beauty. It does not end up in the foothills of Everest like the EBC Trek but leads to the serenity of the region. You’ll witness views of Mt Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and other peaks without reaching the high altitudes. The trek is excellent enough to satisfy your wildest desires of touring the home of Mt Everest.

What if you do not reach the base camp, you’ll traverse through the picturesque land of Sherpas. Amazing settlements like Lukla, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Phakding are explorable on foot in the trek. It is a great pleasure to spend some days around those places in the Everest region. Everest Panorama Trek’s brighter sides are the lush vegetation, amazing terrains, bustling rivers, monasteries, and amongst all the mountain panorama.

Above all, the trek does not demand much preparation before the trek and is out of the reach of the mountain sickness. Tengboche(3,870m), the lovely village of the Everest region is the last high point of the trek. Altitudes above 4,500m are the difficult ones to acclimatize but in the trek, you will not even touch 4000m. That is why the trek is desirable for anyone.

Trip Note

Best Time for Everest Panorama Trek

You need to plot the voyage of Everest Panorama Trek at the right timing. For that, you got two most suitable times: Autumn and Spring. As you have to experience the beauty of the right place at the right time. These two seasons are the best times for Everest Panorama Trek.

To start with Autumn, the season starts in September and lasts until late November. It is a peak season for trekking in Nepal. People seem to be attracted by the good climatic conditions of these months. The Autumn is a post-monsoon season, thus, the first few weeks of September can be wet but after that, the region remains completely out of the reach of rainfall. The mountains and landscapes are all crystalline during this season because of Monsoon’s rainfalls. Autumn’s temperature chart also does not fluctuate much. Instead, you’ll feel warm and stable temperatures in these months.

Likewise, Spring is the second most feasible duration for Everest Panorama Trek. March to May is a timeline of the Spring season in Nepal and in this time period trekkers start to flock again. It is the favorable conditions of Spring that lure many people to Nepal for trekking. Sound temperature, sunny and long days, low precipitation level, greenery, and crystal clear mountain views. That is how Spring is another top season for doing Everest Panorama Trek.

However, you can do the trek in the Winter season as well. You just have to be ready to face the extreme cold of the season in the Himalayas. Everest Panorama Trek is a low altitude trek and you can bear the cold of those areas with the right clothing. Pick either the early or late Winter for trekking, the Winter is less active in those periods. But it is too treacherous to trek in Monsoon, the wettest season of all. The trails start to get wet and slippery during the season. There are very high chances of landslides in the Himalayas.
