The Everest View Trek is an excellent alternative short trek in the Everest region of Nepal. We will gradually start our hike into Khumbu valley with the visit to the authentic Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar whilst being surrounded by stunning mountain panorama, Sherpa village, Monasteries, and valleys.

This fabulous Everest view trek offers a real insight into the life of the Sherpa people of Everest. The trek begins from Lukla and we hike up to Tengboche (3,870m/ 12,694ft), where the world's highest monastery is located. This is the highest altitude village you can reach on this trek. From Tengboche, we see some of the best views of the world's highest peak including a view of Mount Everest as well as other eight-thousander peaks. Tengboche is a well-known tourist destination in Everest popular for the view of some of the most amazing landscapes on the planet. This short everest view trek is ideal for any weekend hillock trekkers who love being close to Himalayas views and especially wish to enjoy the view of Everest while also having a short and comparatively easy trek in the Everest area.

If you want to know other trekking options, we also have many alternative trekking routes itinerary in Everest regions as per the interest and preferences of each trekker. If you wish to do quite a longer trek than Everest, our 16 days Everest base camp trek would be a perfect choice. This is one of the most popular treks in the Khumbu region. Gokyo Valley trek is another highly recommended beautiful trek in the Everest region. If you are physically fit and would like to do a high pass trek then Gokyo Chola pass Everest base trek would be the best option.

Everest View Trek: A Journey Beyond Words with Mountain Sherpa Trekking

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money
Embarking on the Everest view trek was an absolutely unforgettable experience. If you're in the contemplative stage of booking, I wholeheartedly urge you not to hesitate.

The trek presented itself as a journey of moderate challenge yet boundless reward. The Sherpa villages, the awe-inspiring views, and the genuine warmth of the Sherpa people we encountered along the route were nothing short of incredible. It's crucial not to underestimate the magnitude of this adventure, and my recommendation is to choose a responsible Sherpa company like Mountain Sherpa Trekking for an authentic and enriching experience.
Here's a piece of advice based on our journey: plan for a minimum of two nights in Kathmandu before the trek and an additional two nights at the journey's end. Ideally, extending this to six or seven nights allows you to fully absorb the beauty of the hike and explore the enchanting Sherpa villages like Namche, Khunde, and Khumjung. Those initial two nights in Kathmandu before the flight to Lukla prove invaluable for acclimating to the time change and recuperating from the long flight. The last two nights in Kathmandu post-trek offer a leisurely conclusion and a chance for some shopping. Moreover, having an extra day provides flexibility in case of flight delays due to weather.
The Sherpa team, under the guidance of Mr. PD Sherpa, flawlessly organized every aspect of the trek. The lodges along the route and the culinary experiences were of exceptional quality.
As a seasoned Sherpa company, Mountain Sherpa Trekking seamlessly orchestrated our entire journey – from the airport pickup to the Lukla flight, city hotel accommodation to lodge arrangements. Our holiday experience was nothing short of amazing.
Ultimately, the Everest View Trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking became an absolute must-do on the adventure list. The meticulous planning, exceptional organization, and the chance to have the best Sherpa guides made it not just a journey but a truly remarkable and unforgettable experience. Massive thanks to the entire Mountain Sherpa Trekking team for making it all possible!

Why did you choose Mountain Sherpa Trekking?

I chose to book this trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking because I found their itinerary to be well-designed, and they were a genuinely Sherpa-owned company.

Would you recommend Mountain Sherpa Trekking to your friends?

Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions is an absolutely outstanding Sherpa company that goes above and beyond to ensure that hikers get the best experience possible. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.

What would you advice other travellers?

I would recommend fellow travelers to maintain a moderate walking pace, ensure an ample supply of water, and prioritize acclimatization. I highly recommend join this trek with a real Sherpa company to fully experience the authentic Sherpa culture.

Drinking-Water during Everest View Trek

For many of us, the perfect choice may be to go for mineral water. After all, it’s sealed and safe to drink, plus it provides an income for the local traders – right? Regrettably, things are never quite that simple. Mineral water produces a vast number of knock-on problems for mountain societies.

While it does provide an income to local people it also generates an extraordinary, heart-breaking amount of waste and spoiling. Most places simply do not have the resources to do anything with the empty plastic bottles – and they burn them, releasing toxic gases into the air, or leave them in piles just out of sight of travelers, where they take more than 450 years to decompose.

Take, for example, Everest view Trek. The recommended amount of water intake on a high-altitude trek like this is 3-4 litters a day. The trek is 6 days long. That’s more than 20 litters and 20 plastic bottles, which won’t decompose until the year 2466 – per person.

For a full MST group of 12 people, just one trip will result in more than 240 mineral water bottles. And the salt in the wound is that plastic doesn’t decompose at high altitudes, so those 240 or more bottles will be up there forever. But what can you do? You have to drink, so how can you get around the problem?

The Alternatives: The great news is that there are really various options that will help you out of the bottled water trap. Here are just four of the best. All you have to do is pick which one is right for you.

Striped- Steripen is the most trusted model on the market. This technique uses exactly the same process as most mineral water undergoes before it is bottled. It’s UV filtering, exactly the same treatment as the majority of bottled water undergoes to be purified, but on the go. The technology has been around for much longer than you think, but it’s only recently been competitively priced enough to be on the market. SteriPen is an American company; other UV filters are also available.

Boiled water– This isn’t always an option if you’re out and about, but boiled water is an excellent option for safe drinking water on trek. Boiling the water kills any nastiness lurking there. It is the safest and most convenient option. Most lodges serve it, and it is great to ward off the cold. Prices range anywhere between NPR 50 and 120 per liter. This means the cost of drinking water will be around $20-$30 for a 6-day Everest view trek. Please note that 3-4 liters of fully boiled drinkable water are provided daily. Book our all-inclusive Mt. Everest View trek package for safe and hassle-free service. No hidden cost.

Purification tablets– Water refining tablets or chemicals like chlorine dioxide are frequently used. They are easy to carry and cheap to buy. However, they are not as effective as UV filters or boiled water and need a few hours to act. Besides these, LifeStraw and iodine-based treatments are also available but have their drawbacks.

Twin Otter aircraft is the usual mode of transport to and from Lukla. This service is fairly dependable, however, if in case your flight is canceled due to mountain weather conditions. In that case, Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions will charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight connections.

The helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m, while the Twin Otter can fly if the visibility is 5000m as per the Civil Aviation Rules. The cost of the helicopter is payable directly to our Kathmandu office in the event that this service is utilized. US cash, traveler’s cheque, or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard & American Express only) are accepted. You will be given a receipt upon payment so that you may claim the amount from your travel insurance.

The minimum cost will be US$350 and the maximum US$650 depending on the number of group members. The maximum allowance for checked luggage on these flights is 15kg per person and 5kg for hand luggage. These limits are strictly adhered to so please pack carefully. Please note that approx. 5.5kgs of this weight will be taken up by the sleeping bag (2.5kg), down jacket (1.5kg), kit bag (1kg), and sleeping bag liner (0.5kg) that you are provided.


Our Everest view trek packages are all-inclusive but we advise that you budget between $200 and $300 for additional expenses on your trek including tips. We also suggest you plan on having extra money available in cash or on a credit card in case you require to book a helicopter in the event your flight is canceled.

Unforeseen cost due to flight cancellation, weather conditions, etc. You are responsible for extra hotel nights and meals in Kathmandu or Lukla that are a result of flight delays.

Nepal entry visa ($40 USD).


All the meals are included on the trek however we only include breakfast while you are in the city. you can budget $10-15 per day for lunch and dinner in Kathmandu.


Tipping is always appreciated and should be based totally on your satisfaction. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your trips.

Wifi, Batteries Charging, and hot Shower are also not included in the trek package. Wifi is available in some teahouses for $3 to $5 an hour. Hot Showers are also available in a few of the teahouses for between $4 and $6. You can also charge your electronic devices in the lodges and charging costs between $1 and $3 an hour.

Altitude Sickness:

If you trek to a high altitude without letting your body adjust to the new elevation, you may experience altitude sickness. Symptoms include headache and nausea. If you return to a lower elevation, your symptoms will likely go away without needing treatment. In severe cases, altitude sickness can be life threatening.

When we hike above 8,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level our bodies need to acclimatize to the decreasing amount of the oxygen available. You may have symptoms if you travel to a high altitude without giving your body time to adjust to less oxygen. Even if you’re physically fit, you can still experience altitude sickness.

Mountain Sherpa Annapurna sanctuary trek itinerary is carefully designed to avoid from altitude sickness. Over the years we have come up with the best itinerary to aid in the acclimatization process. Our trek itinerary is fully flexible & can modify on the spot if required.

Remember the trek to Himalaya is not a race. Even those in the best shape will suffer from altitude sickness when they race to the top of the mountain too quickly. Go slowly, it will give your body time to adjust to the mountain. However, during the acclimatization process, you may experience some of the following symptoms.

  1. Tiredness
  2. Minor Headache
  3. Troubled sleep
  4. Loss of appetite/nausea
  5. Shortness of breath
  6. Cough
  7. Palpitation
  8. Swelling of the hands and face

Each Person acclimatizes at different rates. Our best suggestion is to take your time and drink plenty of water. These symptoms may not indicate the onset of A.M.S. and if you experience them it does not necessarily mean that you should not continue. All our Sherpa guides have extensive first aid training and we request you to talk with the Sherpa guide at all times should you believe you have any symptoms in order that we can efficiently monitor your symptoms. The only cure for Acute Mountain Sickness is to descend.

You must remember that this is your holiday and you do not want to stress out about the possibility of getting sick from the mountains. Do everything slowly. Drink lots of water. And enjoy the Himalayas views. If anything does happen and you unfortunately get sick, let your guide know right away –Please note that your guide has ultimate responsibility and may ask you to descend if symptoms persist.

Travel insurance:

Travel insurance is necessary for any trip, but is mainly important when undertaking activities such as high altitude trekking in remote regions where medical facilities or assistance may not be close at hand. You’ll enjoy your adventure better with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have the right insurance cover in place should a mishap occur. This can be anything from medical emergencies, trip cancellation, trip interruption, delays, lost or stolen luggage to a full helicopter rescue off a mountain.

Obtaining travel insurance before you leave home is strongly recommended. This way, if something happens, and this is rare, you will not be out of pocket a tremendous amount of money.Mountain Sherpa trekking will provide a letter and your invoice to submit to your insurance in this case to help expedite your processing.

Additional info:

As you pack for Everest Base Camp, remember that your gear will be separated into two packs: your daypack that you will carry each day as you trek, and your duffle bag which will be carried between tea houses by porters. All extra baggage (non- trekking items) can be store at the hotel before you start your trek. We provide you a free duffel bag in Kathmandu. You can use it to pack your essential trekking equipment. We provide one-porter services for two people. Porters will carry up to 25 kg - 30 Kg or 55-66 pound of your personal items. This must include your sleeping bag and down jackets. Therefor your duffel bag should not weigh more than 12 kg-15 kg or 26 pound to 33 pounds.


Daypacks can be any size for hiking, but we always recommend the smaller, the better. Around the 25l to 30l size is good for EBC trek. You need to carry your own backpack (with waterproof cover) where you can carry your daily needed items in your own backpack. For instance: Water bottle, Extra money for drinks, souvenirs & tips, sunhat, camera, important documents, toiletries, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, rain gear, music (iPhone) etc.

If you don’t have your own down jacket & sleeping bag, don’t worry. We will provide you 4 season sleeping bags and good down jacket with a hood for complementary use. Good quality sleeping bag and down jacket are most important for high altitude trek.


Everest view trek is a moderate Adventure Trek. But, a reasonable level of fitness is required. If you are relatively fit and don’t have time for a longer trek. This short Everest view trek in Khumbu would be an ideal option. There are few steep ascents and descents walking. So, this trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor. We suggest you do some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before embarking on your journey.

We use standard rooms at quality hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the Everest View trek routes, mountain lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be always outside the room.

Yes, they have all received 45-day training from the Hotel Management and Tourism Center in Nepal. The guides have also received high-altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project). Please check our Trekking Guides Profiles and Training Certificates.

You also rent out down gear and sleeping bags, which are the most sensible option if you don’t think you’ll be using them again for a while.

We advise you to keep the weight of your trek bag maximum of 15kgs. Usually, we provide 1 porter for 2 clients. However, if you request an extra private porter, we also can organize a private porter for you.
