Everest View Trek


Our short Everest trek has been designed especially for those with limited time. Trek to Namche Bazaar in the heart of the Everest region and enjoy 3 nights in this bustling Sherpa village surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the world. With optional side trips on day 5 to Thame or Khumjung, we pack plenty into this short trekking itinerary. You’ll take in stunning views of Himalayan giants Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and many more.

A short Everest trek with us

Your short Everest trek begins with an exciting early morning flight to the mountain airstrip at Lukla. The next day we arrive at the thriving Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar. At Namche we take in our first views of Everest and many other Himalayan giants. The following day we’ll visit the local monastery and seek a blessing from the Lama before a visit to the Everest View Hotel later that morning. You also have the option of a day trek to Thame or to Khumjung and Khunde. Visit the Sir Edmund Hillary School or just relax and enjoy another day in Namche Bazaar. Either way it’s your decision and our guides will be more than happy to provide advice and lead the way.

This short Everest trek is a moderately challenging high altitude adventure. You’ll enjoy the renowned Trek Climb Ski Nepal level of service and expertise from our experienced team of guides and porters. We designed this short trek for the time-poor that want to see Mt Everest and experience trekking in Nepal. Although short in duration, we still don’t compromise when it comes to a safe and thorough acclimatisation schedule.
