The Everest Panorama Trekbegins with a short scenic flight to the tiny airstrip in Lukla. We begin by walking through the lush agricultural fields of local villages. Then, we cross the suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi River and enter Sagarmatha National Park. We stopat the bustling trading and tourism hubof Namche Bazaar. After our stop, wewalk through rhododendron and pine forests. We may have a chance to see one of the many exotic species that inhabit the area.The sights, smells, and sounds as we walk through the forests refresh us and give us energy.To acclimatize, we will take a rest. Included in the itinerary is a hike to Khumjung and on the way, you can see Everest View Hotel (one of the highest-altitude hotels in the world). We will stop at the Khumjung Monastery, which has an alleged Yeti scalp on display. Tengboche Monastery (3867m), the largest monastery in the region, is another spectacular highlight of the trek where we can observe the Tibetan Buddhist monastic lifestyle.If you visit the monastery during the Mani Rimdu festival (mid-October to mid-November), it will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Retracing our steps to Lukla, we end the journey and fly back to Kathmandu.
Throughout the journey, we are surrounded by the grandeur of the Khimbu region,withpanoramic views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Ama Dablam and other peaks. Thus, it is known as Everest Panorama Trek. It is a perfect trek for people of all ages and experience levels who have interest in seeing the natural and cultural wonders of the famous Everest region. Everest Panorama Trek is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather. During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. Breeze Adventure arranges the trek with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.

During your time in the hotel in Kathmandu, your breakfast is included. Lunch and dinner must be covered on your own. On the trek, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided.

Guide & Porters
A government-licensed guide will lead the trek. All our guides have tremendous experience on the trails and are passionate about the trekking industry. Our guides and porters are dedicated to making your experience of trekking in Nepal a memorable one. If there is any worry during your trek, our guides will address it. Your safety is our number one priority. For groups of more than six people, there will be two guides. For teahouse treks, there will be one porter for every two trekkers. For camping treks, we will need more porters in order to carry the food, kitchen equipment, tents, etc.
As many of our treks lead us high into the Himalayas, it is necessary to let our bodies sufficiently get used to the altitude. Our treks have acclimatization days built into the itinerary. It is best to take it slow to prevent altitude sickness. The level of fitness necessary for our treks varies depending on the trek. On average, expect to walk an average of 5-6 hours per day while on the trial. Generally, the treks can be done with an average level of fitness. More important than fitness or experience is one’s personal determination and positive attitude toward finishing and enjoying the trek.
We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek. We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control. In case of medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance. You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
Best Time to Travel
The peak seasons for traveling in Nepal are during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November). These times provide the best scenery and clearest skies, but of course, they are a little more crowded than the off-season. It is possible to trek during the Winter (December to February), but you will face cold temperatures. It is also possible to trek during the monsoon season (June to August), though the views will likely be covered by clouds and there is a high chance of rainfall.
Insert a cushion of a couple of added days on your travel schedule, advised as a margin of security for your flight from Nepal. Due to the bad weather in the mountain, our domestic flight might be canceled for couples of days. We advise that you schedule an extra days cushion in your itinerary. Breeze Adventure can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu.
