Everest Short Trek
If you want to experience trekking in Nepal, and admire the greatness of the mighty Everest (8848 m), but you want a short or easy option, then this Everest ‘Short’ Panorama trek is the one for you. This Everest trekking package lets you experience trekking in the Himalayas. Enjoy all the beauty and reward of venturing in the Everest region, in just a week.
The Everest Panorama trek starts from the capital city, Kathmandu. Here you will embark on a flight to the most unique airport on earth, Lukla, to begin the journey. However, it is not only Everest that you will see, as this Panorama View Trek truly lives up to its name. On this 8 day journey you will be able to witness the magnificent views of the highest and most spectacular mountain ranges in the world; mountains such as Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Nuptse (7861 m), Mt. Thamserku (6623 m) and Mt. Amadablam (6812 m).
You will get to experience the beauty of the people and the villages of Nepal. On your trek, you will pass the village of Chauri Kharka (2680 m) and reach Phakding. Here the scattered Sherpa houses and the vicinity filled with spiritual calm will give you a true feeling of tranquillity. Later, you will visit the popular Sherpa market called Namche Bazar. It is also is known as the Gateway to Everest, before taking a hike uphill to Syangboche. This will lead you to the largest monastery of Tengboche. It will give you an insight into the practices of Buddhism.
After you have explored the culture, tradition, nature, and stunning views of the country – all in just one week – you will board a flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu. This short trek needs a medium level of physical strength. It is recommended to be carried out between September and November or between March and May. These seasons maximise your chances to see the blooming rhododendron flowers and snowy peaks for which this trek is famed.
With our experienced guides, you will be in safe hands. It is our mission to make your trip fun and comfortable, which is why we have been regarded as the best in the industry in Nepal.

Everest Short Trek
We absolute fell in love with Nepal after doing the Everest short trek.
When my friend and I started to plan our trip to Nepal we were not quite sure which trek we wanted to do, just that it should not be a very long and strenuous one. The manager was very helpful giving us different options to choose from and in the end we chose the Everest short trek which gave us the opportunity to see Mount Everest, fly to Lukla and visit the gate to Everest, Namche Bazar. It all seemed very appealing to us, and we don’t regret it for a moment. We had the choice to go on private trip on day 3 or join another group on day 4. We decided to join a group since it could be fun to meet more people. This also gave us the opportunity to be well rested and well prepared.
After a long flight and all the procedures at the airport it was nice to go outside and be greeted by a friendly face, jump in a car and be taken to a nice hotel. When you are a first time visitor in Nepal, Kathmandu can be quit overwhelming, especially if you are not experienced traveler. So I was quite happy we asked the manager to find a hotel close to his office in the heart of Thamel. It was a nice and clean hotel, good beds, air-condition and hot water in the shower.
The day before we left for Lukla we met our group and our guide at My Everest Trip for a briefing and a update on the weather conditions, the weather can be quite tricky and can always cause delays when it comes to flying to Lukla.
Next morning we were ready to go, the weather caused no problems and gave us the most spectacular view of the Himalayas from the plain.
It’s not possible to describe in words how beautiful this place is, you really have to go and see for yourself. Our guide did a great job, his knowledge and love for his country reflected in everything he did. He was always close, making sure everybody was happy and safe and taking care of everything.
The Everest short trek is a good choice for a short trek. You see so much in a few days and learn so much about history and the culture and we cannot thank My Everest Trip enough for giving us such a wonderful adventure.
After returning to Kathmandu we visited the office several times for good advice or just to drink a cup of tea with the manager and every time we were greeted by his kindness and enthusiasm. The manager and his staff really offer the best service you could ask for. Therefore we will return to Nepal and My Everest Trip for another adventure, because we are now in love with Nepal
Best Guide and Best Company
Being a second time visitor in Nepal I know where to go when I want to go trekking. A few years back I did the Annapurna circuit trek, this year I had less time so Puru suggested The Everest Short Trek, which was good option for me as I really wanted to see the Everest region. Puru gave me Yam as guide, I trekked with him last time also, he is very professional and we connected so well, so I was very happy that we could do another trek together.
At My Everest Trip things just happens in a blink of the eye, every request you might have is taken care of and you don’t have to worry about the staff not being insured or any other issues. The treks are planned very carefully with the acclimatization days necessary to avoid altitude sickness and there is no rushing through.
Everest Short Trek was magnificent. It was great fun to visit Namche Bazaar, so vivid and so many happy people preparing for adventures. I also enjoyed visiting the Tengboche Monastery, but the highlight was definitely the views to the most beautiful mountains the world can offer. I almost feel sad I did not have more time because I really wanted to explore this region.
I hope in a few years I find opportunity to go back to Nepal for the third time. And I don’t have to look for company because I know exactly where to find Puru and his team, in his small orange office with a big smile on his face when you enter the door.
Thank you Puru and Yam for another great adventure.
