Everest Panorama trek to others known as the Everest View Trek is as the name states, one of the best ways to see Mt Everest up close in short amount of time and we at Rediscover Nepal will take you there. Trekking to Everest is one of the most sought after treks in the world. Who wouldn’t want to see the biggest mountain in the world?  Heading up to the Nepalese Himalayas will take up a lot of time that is why Rediscover Nepal organizes various treks that only take up short amount of your time but reward you with incredible views. 
How to get there?
Rediscover Nepal starts the Everest Panorama trek from Kathmandu. It all begins with a scenic flight to Lukla airport. Flights to and from Lukla are often delayed due to the weather conditions, that is why travelers should book an extra day just in case! During the flight the views are just amazing. Seeing the landscape below and the snowcapped mountain peaks peeking over the clouds makes you truly feel on the top of the world. 
When we reach Lukla the Everest Panorama trek officially begins. We don’t want to waste too much time so after a meet and greet with team we head out to Phakding for our first day of trekking. Heading downwards it’s an easy going first day and seeing the Dudh Khosi River giving life to the environment gives a pure nature feeling. The next day we head up to the biggest Sherpa town in the region Namche Bazaar. 
In Namche we get to spend a whole day enjoying the views, exploring around and hiking up to Khumjung village. The route to the villages takes us to the Khumjung ridge from where the best views of Mt. Everest can be seen!
Discover the Sherpa culture.
Many trekkers have heard about the Sherpa, but who are they exactly? Well the Sherpa people are the first who mastered high altitude survival and learned how to tame the mighty mountains. These people live and thrive in the high altitudes of Nepal and are legendary when it comes to mountain knowledge and climbing. 
During our stay in Namche Bazaar our Rediscover Nepal guide will take you not only to see the incredible views but also on a cultural tour through Namche the Sherpa capital. Very interesting is to visit the Sherpa museum, where the whole history of these amazing people can be seen.
