The short and spectacular trip in the Everest region, also known as the Khumbu region, Everest View Trekking is a perfect lower altitude trekking in a short and limited time. It is equally mind blowing trip loaded with the breathtaking panoramas, including the tallest peak of the world, Mt. Everest (8848m), and its vicinity. Along with the natural paradise, it has got a fascination of spiritual bond with the astonishing Sherpa culture.

Everest view trek is also popularly known as the Everest panorama trekking. In short, it is an excellent package to view the mountain vistas; feel the spiritual prosperity of Sherpa people; explore the tiny Himalayan settlements and enjoy the colourful festivals. The last destination of this trekking is Tengboche. It is situated in the heart of the Everest dotted with the innocent Sherpa communities. If you go to this enticing place in the Mani Rimdu festival that falls between mid-October and mid-November, it will be your lifetime experience. We recommend this time as the best trekking period to the Everest view trekking. Acclimatization is essential to deal the altitude sickness. The trek is a beautiful excursion that goes through the Sagarmatha National Park which is wooded with pine and rhododendron trees. It also includes plenty of wild animals and species of birds.

Day 02: Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour - B

We will take you for a historical and heritage tour of Kathmandu valley today after breakfast. A full day sightseeing today in Kathmandu takes you to the amazing heritage sites of Boudhanath is considered as the biggest Buddhist Stupa in the world which lies in the middle of a beautiful square. The giant Buddhist shrine is a very important pilgrimage site for Tibetan Buddhist people. The stupa is considered to have been built in 4th/5th centuries and carries some interesting stories behind its establishment. A stupa is basically a relic monument considered as a sacred shrine in Buddhism but there are several other types of stupas other than relic stupas. A stupa symbolizes the journey of a human being from material world to the world of enlightenment.

Pashupatinath is a Hindu Temple area where you can see a very unique cremation culture for the Hindu dead people. The temple which is considered as the most important Shiva temple in Nepal is open for Hindus only thus non-Hindu people have to stay outside the temple premises observing the Hindu death rites and rituals. We can encounter some Sadhus, the holy men, around who look so fascinating for photographs. The place is a rich spiritual and cultural source to have an insight on Nepali life and rituals.
