Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.
GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude.

We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations.

The Everest Region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do. Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain, therefore, enforces a number of do’s and don’ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain’s trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.
This list is a guideline to help you pack for your adventure. Also understand that the items listed below will vary a little according to the season and the trek duration. Those items marked by an asterisk (*) are provided by Discovery Mountain Trek inclusive in the service. The weight limit for your luggage is 15 kg.

This Everest Panorama Trek from Discovery Mountain is a rewarding trekking experience that lets you have close-up views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and other peaks of the Everest region. In this trek you will see unobstructed panoramic views of the mighty peaks, see a busy culture at high altitudes, and fly to the exciting Lukla Airport – the gateway to Everest Region.
This is a world of natural beauty of the mountains, and trekking here is about exploring a piece of the diverse Khumbu region. Also known as Everest View Trek, this program is one of the least challenging treks in this area. The joyous walk through mountainous landscape is a journey near hills, waterfalls, alpine forests and snow-capped peaks. The ever-looming and omnipresent white peaks will inspire you in this trek. As you trek to higher altitudes, you will notice the thinning vegetation by the hour. The Nepalese national flower, rhododendron, is also found blooming if you happen to be here in season. As for the wildlife, you might see the elusive snow leopard, the Himalayan black bear, musk deer, blue sheep, and other species who call this place home.
Our Everest Panorama Trek begins with an exciting flight to Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. The scenic 45 minute flight from Kathmandu will suddenly bring you to the laps of the mountains. From Lukla, we will trek to Phakding, to Namche, and beyond. At Namche, you can use the Internet, relax in a hot sauna, enjoy a shot of espresso, or simply sleep at a luxury hotel. This prosperous village is also called by many as the Sherpa Capital of Nepal!
Leaving behind Namche, we will visit several other villages right in the foothills of Everest. You will even see the ice walls of Thamsherku and Lhotse-Nuptse, and a snowscape that will enchant you. Everywhere you go on this trek, you will see at least one peak of the Himalayan Range – such is the proximity to the mountains. We will see the mountains of Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Tawache, and Thamsherku in this trip. This program from Discovery Mountain is designed with beautiful views in mind. You are invited to explore the Sherpa culture and overall, see a community thriving in the laps of Everest.
After your arrival at Kathmandu International Airport, we will pick you up and transfer you to the hotel. You can spend the evening around Thamel.
After breakfast, get on a pre-booked 30-minute flight from Kathmandu. This scenic flight will take you to Lukla, where your trekking guides will receive you at the airport. An easy trek of around three hours will bring you to the village of Phakding at the banks of Dudh-Koshi river, where you will stop for the night.
Begin an early trek along Dudh-Koshi, criss-crossing it several times. Today the destination is Namche Bazaar, the fabled village in the heart of the mountains. The trail is initially lined by views of Mt. Thamserku, and on a really clear day, even Mt. Everest is visible in the distance. As you reach closer to Namche, you will find the trail winding up with approaching views of Everest-Nuptse Wall, Mt. Lhotse and several other peaks. Once at Namche, relax in a hot bath, surf the Internet, enjoy a cup of cappuccino and then call it day.
Take a day off at Namche and enjoy the quiet lifestyle in stark contrast to your regular routine. In the morning, have a hearty breakfast with views of magnificent peaks. Later in the day, take short hikes in and around the town – and savour the beauty that is Namche. This is an important day of rest as it will help you acclimatize at the altitude and help you warm up the muscles for an exciting expedition ahead.
The Valley of Khumjung is surrounded by snowy peaks – a prominent one being Mt. Everest – the highest one of all. Here, you will see a monastery that still practices age-old traditions and daily prayers. The culture of the people of this valley is unique even in the Khumbu Region itself. Leaving behind Namche in the morning, you will climb up through Syangboche with close-up views of Kongde and Thamsherku. After a four-hour trek, we will arrive at the Village of Khumjung where we’ll stay for the night.
After breakfast, we leave Khumjung and head towards Tengboche, our destination for today. Early along the way, we will have superb views of Ama Dablam, Everest, and Lhotse before crossing some quaint villages. Further along the trek, we climb up a difficult trail to Tengboche, a village that houses the iconic Tengboche Monastery at the laps of the mighty Everest. Check into a hotel or a lodge for a night of rest.
After a leisurely breakfast, we pack the bags and leave Tengboche headed to Kyangjuma. Kyangjuma is located at an altitude of 3,570 meters with wonderful close-up views of Mount Ama Dablam. Starting from Tengboche we first descend through an alpine forest which thickens as we move to lower altitudes. Including brief stops for tea and lunch, we further descend to Kyangjuma where we will have wonderful views of Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Thamsherku peaks. Stay overnight at Kyangjuma in a lodge.
First we begin easy. Then we take a gradual ascent and then a gradual descent. This keeps on happening through the trail across the forest and the turns until we arrive at Namche Bazaar. After a stop here, we trek down to Phakding by crossing the Dudh Koshi River and pass through monasteries among Sherpa settlements. We finally arrive at Phakding where we stay for the night in a lodge.
As we come near the end of trekking in this program, you will enjoy today’s trek more than before. The trail from Phakding to Lukla is an average one with gradual uphills and some level grounds. First you will cross a suspension bridge and then cross several colorful villages. The walk is joyous today with under four hours of trek. Later in the afternoon we arrive at Lukla. Spend the rest of the day sharing your stories in a bar, or enjoy as you see fit.
Go to Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla in the morning, and catch a flight back to Kathmandu. The scenic flight is around 40 minutes, a whisk that will bring you back to bustling Kathmandu. Later in the day we will go on a sightseeing tour of some iconic places in the Kathmandu Valley, that will essentially include UNESCO World Heritage sites. After dinner, return to your hotel for the night.
After breakfast, we will take you on a sightseeing tour of some iconic places in the Kathmandu Valley, that will essentially include UNESCO World Heritage sites. In the evening, you are invited to join us for a farewell dinner.
According to your schedule, we will take you to the airport for your flight ahead.
