Himalayan Friends’ Everest Buddhist trek to others also known as the Everest View Trek or the Everest Panorama View Trek, is one of the most famous short trek in Nepal. As the name states, one of the best ways to see Mt Everest up close in a short amount of time and seeing the Himalayan Buddhist culture first hand. Trekking to Everest is one of the most sought after treks in the world and 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 Himalayan Friends organizes various treks that only take up a short amount of your time. The Everest Buddhist trek of 9 days can also be made shorter depending on your travel time. 

How to get there?
Himalayan Friends starts the Everest Buddhist 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 Buddisht Trek officially begins. We don’t want to waste too much time so after a meet and greet with the team we head out to Phakding for our first day of trekking in the Everest region. 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! Our journey takes now to the Khumjung Monastery. Here in this ancient Buddhist monastery a mythical yeti skull can be seen. The last place to visit on our Buddhist trek is the Tengboche Monastery. Laying peaceful on a hillside with incredible valley views, this monastery is a famous pilgrimage site. Witness the evening prayers and become one with the Himalayas!
