The trek to Everest Panorama provides you a rare opportunity to discover the typical Sherpa Villages, their culture and tradition. Apart from this, trekkers can also experience the oldest monasteries, rare scenic view, Sherpa lifestyle and unique hospitality of the Sherpa people living in the Himalayas. There is a funny quotation associated with the Sherpas of the Himalayas that if a Sherpa remains away from home for a night and comes back next morning, he has already climbed any of the peaks around the Khumbu Region!

In order to complete Everest Panorama Trek, you need to take a 30-minute flight from the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu to Lukla Airport (also known as Tenzing Hillary Airport). The flight to Lukla at an elevation of 2,840m (9,318ft) is the first and foremost attraction to the trekkers. You can see the spellbinding scenery of green forests and snowcapped peaks around the Khumbu Region. As you approach Lukla, you will be in a totally new climatic region that you feel estrangement but happy too due to the eye-catching sight of the mountains around Mt. Everest. After a short rest at Lukla, you begin your day with a short trek to Phakding where you spend your night.

On the second morning, your destination is Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Everest Panorama Trek View. It is also called the headquarters of the region which is dwelt by the Sherpa people. Many tourists thoughout the world for Everest Region Trek and Everest View Trek are seen in this town 365 by 12. You can find all types of amenities as it has high class hotels, lodges, restaurants, cafes, banks, malls and other hubs for modern goods and services. You have to spend the following day right here for acclimatization as it is located at the height more than 3,000 meters. At least a day’s rest at Namche Bazaar helps you to complete Everest Panorama Trek successfully at the given time.

On the third day around Everest Panorama Trek, you can take a short trek to Syangboche Airstrip located at the altitude of 3,780m (12,401ft). Though the airstrip is just for takeoff and land, you can cherish the charming view of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse and Lhotse. For the 360-degree panoramic view of the Everest region just in front of you, you can then go the only 5 star hotel Hotel Everest View in the region.

If you are still strong enough and interested in taking another trip around the Everest Panorama Trek, you can walk down to Khunde Village. Here, you can see Khunde Hospital at an elevation of 3,840m (12,600ft) founded by Sir Edmund Hillary opened on 18 December, 1966. The hospital supported by Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation and staffed and operated by the locals now provides health facilities to the people around the Khumbu region.

Then you can return to Namche Bazaar for the night station where you can visit Sherpa Culture Museum built in traditional Sherpa architectural style. It is open for all the trekkers and travelers who are for Everest Region Trek and Everest Panorama Trek. You can find a reflection of Sherpa culture, tradition and their typical lifestyle in the museum. The setting of the museum is in conventional Sherpa artifacts in which the ground level is for cow-shade, dung and straw store whereas the first floor is for museum purpose. You can find the photographs right from the 1953 expedition led by Sir Edmund Hillary, other assets of mountaineering and Sherpa culture. It becomes one of the most memorable events in your life during 8 days Everest Panorama Trek.

Next day, you will trek to Tengboche, the highest altitude of the Everest Panorama Trek by walking upwards the stone staircases from Namche Bazaar. Even though the trail is quite hard to cross, the magnificent view of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and Mt. Khumbila moving along with you won’t let you be lethargic. You will walk across the forests of rhododendron and pine trees on the way which will further ascend. Tengboche, the oldest monastery, especially for the Buddhists pilgrims in this region is the most captivating sight of short Everest Panorama Trek. You spend the night at a tea house where you can have typical hygienic cuisines with the best hospitality of the Sherpa community. Here, you can also come in contact with the lifestyle, culture and tradition of the Sherpa people which is also a matter of wonder for you.

Another day, you will trek down to Monjo, the southern entrance of the Sagarmatha National Park that is enlisted in 1979 in the Natural World Heritage Site. The route to Monjo is quite sloppy from Tengboche, however, the captive outlook of Mt. Everest and other mountains inspires you for further descent.
