Everest Panorama Trekking to Tengboche is ideal to get a glimpse of  trekking in the mountains of Nepal.  Especially great for those with less time who nevertheless want a view of Everest. The trek through the famous Khumbu region provides a good insight into Sherpa culture without the struggle of high altitude trekking in Everest Region. Our destination is the village of Tengboche with its famous monastery where we have time to soak up the atmosphere along with some tremendous views of the very beautiful mountain Ama Dablam in Khumbu Region. Then, we will slowly return to Lukla and catch a flight back to Kathmandu.

Flight to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2652m)

Today we start our journey from Kathmandu with a flight to Lukla, which takes around 45 min. The plane passes over the fertile middle hills, with their scattered villages and terraced fields, with an amazing panorama of the high Himalaya as a backdrop. After reaching Lukla, we stop to have tea or coffee and start the trek to Phakding, a place around 3 hours from Lukla. Phakding will be your first overnight stop.

Walking time: 3 hours

2

Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3446m)

From Phakding we trek to Namche Bazaar, which was once a small village but has grown in size to accommodate the influx of trekkers, and now is the unofficial capital of the Sherpas. It was once an important trading centre on the route from Tibet to Nepal but has now been largely given over to catering for the needs of trekkers. For acclimatization, we suggest you to spend 2 nights in or around Namche.

Walking time: 6 hours

3

Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar

We take a rest at Namche Bazaar to acclimatize, which gives the opportunity to explore some of the less developed and more traditional villages in the area. Easier options for passing the acclimatization day can be found by visiting the twin Sherpa villages of Khumjung and Khunde, which are about a 2 hour walk above Namche. While in Khunde, visit the hospital, which was established and funded by Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust. Khumjung monastery is interesting as being the store place of one of the alleged Yeti scalps that are to be found in the region. Having lunch in Everest view hotel and enjoy with gorgeous view of Mt. Everest and Amadablam is other attractions having one day free in Namche Bazaar.

Namche to Tengboche (3867m)

Moving on from Namche Bazaar, the trail follows the valley of the Imja Khola with some spectacular views of the mountains including Thamserku, Kangtega and Amadablam and dominating the skyline ahead, Everest and Lhotse. The most common night stop after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola, at Tengboche. This is the site of one of the most significant Buddhist Monastery in Solukhumbu Region and a visit is well recommended.

Walking time: 5 hours

5

Tengboche to Khumjung (3780m)

On this day we trek from Tengboche to Khumjung “the sister city” of Kunde.

Walking time: 4 hours

Khumjung to Phakding(2652m)

As we are slowly making our way back down again, we trek from Khumjung back to Phakding today.

Walking time: 7 hours

7

Phakding to Lukla (2840m)

Trek from Phakding to Lukla, situated high above the river on shelf, Lukla is another classic paradox in determining altitude because the runway is on a slope and there is a difference of almost 60 meters between the lower and upper ends of the runway.

Walking time: 3 hours

Flight back to Kathmandu

From Lukla we fly back to Kathmandu. Arrive Kathmandu and transfer to hotel.

Tengboche Monastery

Tengboche Monastery also known as Dawa Choling Gompa, is in the Tengboche village in Khumjung in the Khumbu Region of Eastern Nepal. It is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community situated at 3,867 m. The monastery is the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It was built in 1916 by Lama Guru with strong links to its mother monastery known as Rongbuk Monastery located in Tibet. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1934 and was consequently rebuilt. In 1989, it was destroyed again by a fire and then rebuilt with the help of volunteers and international support.

Tengboche is famous because of its spectacular and distinctive location. It lies on the main route to the Everest Base Camp of Mt. Everest and offers the first clear views of the highest mountain in the world. Tengboche became famous to the world after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa made the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953. A lot has been changed since those days when Tengboche was remote and inaccessible. Today more than 30,000 people come every year to enjoy the beauty of Tengboche and splendor of the mountains.
