Everest Panorama Trek is one of the most amazing adventures that perfectly combine all of the best features of the Khumbu region of Nepal in relatively short time duration. As the name itself implies, the Everest Panorama Trek presents magnificent views of Mount Everest (8848m) along with many of its neighbouring peaks. The trekking trail goes through the Himalayan villages of the Khumbu and also presents the opportunity to experience the ethnic Sherpa culture.
Starting with a brilliant sightseeing tour of Kathmandu city, the Everest Panorama view Trek starts with a short flight to Lukla. Walking under the verdant canopy of rhododendron blooms, trekkers can see imposing views of the colossal Everest decorating the skyline. Blended together with the ethnic Sherpa tradition of Khumbu the trekking journey brims with breath-taking features. Mani walls carved with prayers and colourful prayer flags decorate the trans-Himalayan landscape of Khumbu, giving the trekking journey a spiritual feel as well. The trekking trail goes through famed mountain towns and villages like Namche Bazaar and takes to the final destination Tengboche, where the mountain peaks like Everest (8848m), Ama Dablam (6856m), Taboche (6367m), Lhotse (8414m) and Thamserku (6608m), among many others, shine awe-inspiringly behind the sacred Tengboche Monastery. The best time to do the Everest Panorama Trek is during the spring and the autumn seasons, which last from March to May and September to December respectively.

Narayan Baniya (nature pathfinder) and Sumir Gyawali (yoga teacher) guide me in
this adventure. Actually they manage perfectly my short time and all the noisy
burocratic thinks like documents or Covid control. They makes me feel safely and
had care of me since the moment I reserved .. now I’m at home and still feel the
power of their experience, friendship and good nature. They makes me “enter” in
the Nepali lifestyle, from metropolitan Kathmandu until the top of the mountain
were the vibes are soo deep. Their good vibes are compatible with all, Sumir had a
clinical yogi eye and Narayan the calm you need to arrive over the clouds.. it was
like a day dreaming and I never forget this experience out of time. Thank you
A great & well organised experience. I highly recommend Himalayan
recreation to anyone planning to trek to the Annapurna Basecamp. Everything from
start to finish was all taken care of, taking away all of the stress of
organisation so that I could focus on enjoying the trek.
Ashok was very responsive on whatsapp at all times and was able to adapt the tour
when circumstances changed. For example, when my flight to Pokhara was cancelled,
Ashok arranged for a friendly driver to take me all the way there by private car
instead (I did have to wait 1.5 hours for the driver, but traffic in Kathmandu is
difficult). My guide Santosh and porter Bal were very friendly and accommodating
and were good company during the trek. They have the English skills required to
answer the majority of questions, particularly relating to the trek. Overall, a
very good experience.
The trek itself is very beautiful. It has everything, including rural villages
with rice terraces, bamboo forests, and epic mountains. The accommodation is basic
but everything you need for a trek (much better than camping). The weather
forecast is inaccurate - I enjoyed decent weather despite the forecast being
constant rain/thunder. I found the difficulty to be much easier than others state,
and could have completed the trek in 5-6 days. Almost anyone with a decent level
of fitness would be able to complete this trek (adjusting the duration to
The Annupurna Poon Hill Trip is a lovely trek through the lower elevations of the
Annupurna range of the Himalayas. Starting from Pokhara, a 90 minute drive in a
taxi drops us off at the beginning of the trek and then goes up from there. My
guide, Raj, was absolutely awesome and provided a lot of great information about
the area during our trek over the several days that this trek takes place. The
second day of the climb takes us to the small town of Ghorepani, and then an early
climb the next morning to Poon Hill.
I went on this trip in the 2nd year of the virus. According to my guide, the
number of travelers was still way down from pre-pandemic years. So, in one way, it
is a great time to travel since you will have most of the trails to yourself. The
tea houses are also pretty empty. The negative side to this is that there are
limited menu items and several places didn't have WiFi.
There are a few recommendations I would make about this trip. The first is the
ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara. I took the bus and regretted it about halfway
there. While the distance is only 200 km, it took about 8 hours on the bus. If I
were to do this again, I would have opted for a 30 minute flight. It costs more,
but is so worth it.
Second, make sure you bring toilet paper with you on the trek. The tea houses I
stayed in during my trek didn't have any. So, bringing a roll of your own is a
huge help. And speaking of bathrooms, most of the toilets along the route are not
the western style sit-down toilets. Rather they are the hole in the grounds. So,
make sure to use the bathroom before leaving the tea house since the next
western-style toilet isn't until the next guest house, which could be a half day
Finally, if you have time after the trek, spend an extra day in Pokhara. It is
much more interesting than Kathmandu.
Otherwise, the trek was wonderful and the folks at Himalayan Recreation did a
great job in staying in touch, picking me up at the airport when I arrived in
Nepal, and provided excellent service all the way through.
This trip was the first we took with those guys. It was very nice, guide was
interesting and gave us a lot information about Bhaktapur and Nepal itself.
After they arranged few more trips for us. First was Chitwan national park and
jeep safari. After Pokhara and paragliding. And then return to Kathmandu. It was
very helpful to have someone local there who can arrange flights, pick ups, all
the activities and return wherever needed.
We didn't have more time, but all the time we had, they managed to organize for
us, without stressing or worrying.
I truly recommend them, because they are very responsible and helpful for any
situation. I firstly met them in Kathmandu for our first trip and they helped us
with all the others.
Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be greeted by one of the company representatives. He/she will assist you in your hotel transfer. Overnight at the hotel in Kathmandu.
Today you will have a pre-trip meeting where further details of the trip will be provided to you. Then you will have a guided sightseeing tour of the Kathmandu valley where you will visit its UNESCO world heritage sites. You will visit the Pashupatinath temple, the Boudhanath Stupa, and the Swayambhunath Temple. These sites are revered Hindu and Buddhist shrines that hold an important place in the cultural aspect of the country. Each site presents unique art and architecture as well. After the sightseeing tour, you will return to your hotel for an overnight stay.
You will start the trek today with a flight to Lukla, a mountain town of the Khumbu region which is often the starting point of many of the region's trekking journeys. The short flight to Lukla in itself is a small adventure because the plane lands at the Tenzing-Hillary Airport, a thrilling airport due to its uncharacteristically short runway. From Lukla, you will trek on a beautiful trail to reach Phakding, from where you will get your first view of Mount Kusum Khangkaru (6467m). Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
From Phakding, you will continue on your trekking trail towards Namche Bazaar. Walking on the side of the Dudh Koshi River, you will get amazing views of Mount Everest (8848m), Thamserku (6608m), and other mountains until you finally reach Namche. It is one of the most famous towns of Khumbu and is popularly referred to as "the Gateway to Everest". It has a rich Sherpa culture and the entire town is built like a natural amphitheatre. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
This day is specially sanctioned for acclimatization. You can visit the Sherpa Culture Museum as well as the Everest Mountain Gallery here in Namche Bazaar. Furthermore, you can take a hike at the Everest View Hotel and enjoy the best view of Mount Everest (8848m). You can also visit the Syangboche Airstrip from where the views of the town of Namche, as well as the surrounding mountains, are quite spectacular. Overnight in Namche.
From Namche, you will trek to the village of Khumjung today. You will ascend through many small stupas and Chortens on the way to Khumjung. Khumjung is one of the biggest Sherpa villages in the Khumbu region and is quite popular for its monastery that displays a skull of the infamous Yeti. You can enjoy an amazing view of the mountains including the sacred Khumbila (5761m) in Khumjung. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
Today you will walk along with the stone steps towards Phunke Tenga with the beautiful view of Mt. Khumbila (5761m) in the background. The trail continues through beautiful rhododendron forests until reaching Tengboche. Tengboche is another famous mountain village that possesses a serene ambience. You can visit the popular Tengboche Monastery here, which is surrounded by the amazing panorama of snow-capped mountains, including Everest (8848m). The monastery is built in traditional Buddhist architecture along with decorative murals and pastel paintings. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
Descend back to Namche Bazaar alongside Dudh Koshi River through the lush rhododendron and oak forest. The views of the stunning peaks of Mt. Thamserku (6608m) and Kangtega (6685m) and the tranquil environment of the Himalayas make the descent quite pleasant. On reaching Namche, you can walk around the village and enjoy the local food. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
This will be the last day of the trek, and you will retrace your way back to Lukla following the Dudh Koshi River. You will pass by the villages of Monjo, Bengkar, Phakding, and Chheplung to finally reach Lukla. The verdant forests and the snow-clad mountain peaks will keep you company as you descend back. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
You will bid goodbye to the mountains today and take your flight back to Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, you can spend the rest of the day as you please, shopping or sightseeing. You can also enjoy different cuisines at different restaurants around the city. In the evening, you can enjoy a special farewell dinner provided by the company. Overnight stay at the hotel.
