Regarded as short and easy Everest trek, our Glimpse of Everest Trek is a perfect mixture of adventure and delight on the foothills of top of the world Mt. Everest.

Being a soft adventure trek, an entire family can also embark on this Himalayan journey to Tengboche and spend some memorably joyous days in the famous Everest Region of Nepal.

Starting off with an enriching Kathmandu city tour around the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Sites, we leave the bustling capital city behind and fly off towards the naturally blessed Khumbu region of eastern Nepal. After flying for approximately 30 minutes, our flight shall land at the small hill airstrip of Lukla and then begin our trekking experience by heading towards Phakding village. Passing through dense rhododendron forests, our trail leads us toward Sagarmatha National Park where trekkers get to go on a picturesque jungle walk while experiencing fresh air, scenic mountain views & welcoming rural Sherpa communities along the way. Later ahead, after crossing numerous suspension bridges, river streams and small village settlements we arrive at the lively Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar.

Here, we plan on spending a day for acclimatization purposes before an attempt to reach Tengboche village the next day. Upon reaching Tengboche, you can witness a tantalizing mountain view of the world’s highest mountain- Mt. Everest (8,848m) along with Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and other surrounding peaks. Furthermore, the largest monastery of Khumbu region is located here which allows you to learn and observe Buddhist cultural practices closely & personally.
