Best Seasons for Everest Panorama Trekking:

Everest Panorama Trek for nearly all months of the year; however best time is from March to May in spring season and with mid-September till December months during autumn and pre-winter season.

March to May lovely with enough day lights and sunshine when high hills with forest of tall trees and bush of rhododendron will be in full bloom with other wild-flowers, make this trek more interesting and special.

Most days are clear from morning till late afternoon, can get cloudy sometimes with chance of snows around higher elevation cold in the morning and night time (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

Mid-September to December during autumn / fall season where most days are crystal clear from morning till mid-afternoon but with short day lights, much colder and freezing temperatures in the morning and night as well in shades, away from sun lights (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

Some people might be interested to trek during low season of wet monsoon times most days are cloudy that obstructs views of peaks, encountering less and few numbers of trekkers during rainy season of Mid June till Mid-September, but very lush and greens with enough moistures that supports with more oxygen to help acclimatization, days are longer with sunlight due to summer and monsoon season around Nepal and other Himalayan destinations much warmer than other seasons of spring and autumn.

Local Culture and Religion-11 Days short trek to Everest:

Sherpa are the natives of Everest and other higher Himalayan region, the word Sherpa comes from Tibetan language as East for Sher and Pa means people, where Sherpa migrated around high Himalaya of Nepal around Mid-East and Far Eastern Himalaya range from Eastern parts of Tibet.

Way back more than 400 years of history, the Sherpa normally are farmers and livestock herding like cows and yaks interwoven with strong Buddhism religion and fascinating cultures that you can witness walking around villages.

In every Sherpa villages one can find a monastery, some are older of more than 500 years like the monastery of Thame and Pangboche villages, where’s the famous monastery of Thyangboche was much older which was destroyed by huge fire in 1991 and been built to its original shapes.

As you walk from village to another where you will come across many prayer walls and religious monuments of Stupas (dome), with rows of spinning prayer wheels.

Sherpa men-folks were earlier pioneers as mountain and trekking guides and still held the post till present.

Accommodation in Manthali Town:

Hotels and local lodge are not up to the standard of tourist class, very basic and simple suitable for local travelers only, where trekkers for flight to Lukla sometimes has to bear with us, if staying overnight at Manthali for flight to Lukla or on the way back to Kathmandu.

The other options will be driving early morning by 2 a.m. in the dark to reach on time for flight departure for Lukla.

Flying back from Lukla time permitting (during morning and mid-day) can travel back to Kathmandu on time.

Please bear with us for above sudden change of notice flight to Lukla instead from Kathmandu domestic airport will be from Manthali airport, Ramechap which will continue till near future.

Important to know for all trekkers flying in and out Lukla requires minimum of two days extra from the standard itinerary provided, to cope with present situation regarding change of airport for flight to Lukla or towards other mountain destinations.

Everest View Trek

There are no words that can adequately describe the experience we had on the Everest View Trek (Lukla, Namche, Tengboche, the Dudh Kosi River and all the places in between). The word "Awesome" falls considerably short in describing our experience. My wife and I were recently married and from our first date we both had always wanted to trek in the Himalayas. Deepak was the catalyst that made our Trek one of the most tremendous experiences of our lives. He was knowledgeable about the the mountains and the cultures. He is also a very enjoyable person to be with. And that in and of itself is extremely important if you plan any type of extended Trek. My wife and I were lucky we had the chance to have Deeps as our guide. We still keep in contact with Deeps and have recommended him to friends. Our hope is to someday get back to Nepal, and when we do, there is only one person I would want for our guide.

Awesome Trek and Amazing Service

I was doing my Himalayan trek alone as a female. Dipak was super considerate and sent me one experienced male trekking guide and another female assistant guide so that I could be taken good care of. Besides of that, Dipak has been super responsive on my questions and I received emails from him at midnight during Nepal time. I would definitely recommend Trekking Planner to anybody who would like to trek in Himalayas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Based on location, the tea houses vary on their quality and style on this trek. Each of them have communal room downstairs with one or two bed bedrooms above them. You have to share toilet facilities. Some have hot shower facilities but some will have a stand pipe. Tea houses use a burning stove in main communal area. The other rooms are unheated. Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. We recommend you exchange cash in Kathmandu.

At the lower altitudes there is electricity to charge your electronics. As we go higher tea houses become more basic. Cooler temperatures drain battery life, ensure your batteries last a little longer by putting it inside pocket of your coat during the day or under your pillow at night.

At most, 1-2 liters is sufficient. You will be able to refill bottles at lunch time. When you are at high altitude you have to drink more water to alleviate symptoms of altitude.

Yes, trekking poles make you easy to walk over rough or steep terrain. Trekking poles makes your body and leg to move more safely. Furthermore, it will help relieve the stress on your legs. So, we suggest you use them.

Tea houses and other small shops on the way have stores which sell bottled water and other supplies you may desire. There are no any plastic recycling facilities in Nepal, we encourage you to bring chlorine tablets or a filter and use previously boiled water in the tea houses.

You have to bring iodine tablets with you. Chlorine tablets are widely available. The most effective and commonly used version of chlorine is chlorine dioxide, which is tasteless and odorless. Tablets can be bought cheaply and usually 1 tablet is sufficient to purify 1 liter of water. Neutralizing tablets can also be bought to get rid of the smell and taste of chlorine or iodine. This will need to be done for water obtained using hand pumps or in streams during the trek.

Altitude produces physical changes in the body. The higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If you gain a lot of elevation quickly then you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness. In rare cases this may worsen, so the group leader keeps a close watch on all trekkers. The group leader is trained to recognize Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If a trekker shows any signs of AMS they will be evacuated to a lower, safe altitude immediately. To minimize effects of altitude you ascend slowly which allows for safe acclimatization.

It depends on the nature of your illness. If you suddenly feel dizzy or weak, you have to sit or lie down. If you still feel sick, keep a warm and rest until you can get medical help. You will be carried down or evacuated if you do not start to feel better. Although we provide a first aid kit, we advise travelers to take a personal first aid kit too.

In serious cases, you may need helicopter rescue. Our guide will suggest you use it if your condition is very serious. Therefore, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek with Trekking Planner.

Yes. The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you should expect to experience all four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. Even in winter it can be as warm as 19C during the day. The higher the altitude the higher the temperature difference is at night. It can get very cold at night, around -10C in October/November, and around -20C from December to February.

Alcohol is consumed in Nepal. You can buy it in tea houses in the trek. Local alcohol is also available. However, we suggest not to drink alcohol at high altitude.

Hydro electricity or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like cameras, batteries, iPods, phones etc. Tea houses or lodges may charge small fee per hour for charging facilities. We recommend buying adaptors before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.
