Everest Short Trek
If you want to experience trekking in Nepal, and admire the greatness of the mighty Everest (8848m), but you want a short or easy option, then this Everest ‘Short’ Panorama trek is the one for you. This trekking package lets you experience trekking in the Himalayas and 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, where you will embark on a flight to the most unique airport on earth, Lukla, to begin 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 (8516m), Mt. Nuptse (7861m), Mt. Thamserku (6623m) and Mt. Amadablam (6812m).
As well as the various mountain ranges, 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 (2680m) and reach Phakding. Here the scattered Sherpa houses and the vicinity filled with spiritual calm will give you a true feeling of tranquility. Later, you will visit the popular Sherpa market called Namche Bazar, also known as the Gateway to Everest, before taking a hike uphill to Syangboche. This will lead you to the largest monastery of Tengboche, which 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. The trek needs medium level physical strength and 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.

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.
