Everest panorama trekking description
Nepal needs no description for its natural and beauty and cultural and historical. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It contains an incredible variety of scenery from the highest point on earth to the jungle lowlands linked with India. A visit to the Everest region is a dream of many adventure lovers from all other the world. It is considered as the second-most popular trekking route and destination after annapurna, the region holds unique culture, traditions, life style of the local people, rich biodiversity, and majestic mountains. The region also got its popularity due to the presence of Mt. Everest (8,848m.), the world’s highest mountain in its lap.
The traditional homeland of the Sherpas, the renowned mountain people who moved south from the Tibetan plateau lies in the shadow of Everest. Exploring the region using colorful village inns, we maximize our contact with the Sherpa people. Trekking in this region offers stunning combinations of majestic mountains view, scenery, history and culture as well as a variety of exciting ways of experiencing the Nepali way of life. The trek is prepared for those who have limited time and cannot trek to the higher altitude. Besides, the trek is also popular among the senior citizens. Comparatively it is shorter than Everest Base Camp trekking. In this trek, we would reach only up to Tyangboche monastery which is situated at an altitude of 3870m. The later days of this journey will be spent in the delightful and scenic villages of Jorsale (Thumbung) at 2830m. And Khumjung where we will have the opportunity to interact with the legendary Sherpa people and participate in their astonishing traditional lifestyle. Finally, we come back to Kathmandu through Lukla..

We are experts for the operations trip at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a sound acclimatization program. We created this trekking itinerary to allow for gradual height gain spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude, but for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent will produce minimal effects. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. For all trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters, our guides carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness; they are trained to track symptoms as well as administer medications but we recommend to you to carry medicine by yourself that is beneficial for you.
To be sufficiently protected in terms of insurance, you need specialized travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers emergency evacuation, trip injury, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. Our agency Gokyo Treks and Expedition can arrange for the appropriate policy based on your trekking.
Climate and Weather
The climate of Nepal is as varied as its geography. The low-lying Terai has a sub-tropical monsoonal climate. The Himalaya where most of our treks take place, are best in the cool dry season from September to May. The traditional trekking season in Nepal is late September to December, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather. Spring is also a popular time of year with warmer weather and the advantage of seeing spring flowers and rhododendrons in bloom. The visibility is good and days are pleasantly warm, although nights can be cold, and snow is possible above 3,000 meters.
This trekking is likely to have a wide range of temperatures depending on the altitude and the time of day. In the mountains up to 3,500m the nights will be cool, normally around 5 degree C, and during the day temperatures sometimes rise to 25 degree C. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 15 degree C to -10 degree C.
We bring together a small group of likeminded people to give them a memorable and insightful travel experience with an invaluable opportunity to interact in a fun-filled environment. Our travel group generally comprises a maximum of 12 members. We need a minimum of 2 participants to run our fixed departure dates. For individualized trips, no minimum or maximum applies. If you would like to travel independently or with your friends, families and colleagues, you are invited to choose any of the trips at your convenient time frame for any number of people.
