Everest Panorama Trek.

This easy trek in the foothills of Mount Everest region starts with an easy stroll on the rim of the Kathmandu Valley, where we gain a first distant view of Himalayas. After a 35-minute flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins
This trekking follows the trail to Tengboche Monastery (3,860m) via Lukla , Namche Bazar. Although, it is a short trek giving you a really superb view of the world’s highest snow capped peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, and Mt. Amadablam. Visiting a succession of Sherpa villages, surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and glistening snow-capped peaks, the popular myth of ‘Shangri La’ will seem all-too-real.
This trek definitely gives a great introduction to Sherpa lifestyle, country culture along with fine mountain views. For first time trekkers to Nepal this is a popular destination. Suited for those people who haven’t had enough time for a longer trek into the high mountains.
