Everest View & Tengboche Monastery

10 days, Adventure Treks

Everest View, Tengboche Monastery This Mini -Everest trek is a very scenic route offering superb views of the world's highest peak Mt. Everest. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazaar and on to the Tyangboche Monastery. An optional day hike takes you to Khumjung village, a charming Sherpa settlement. This trek provides a splendid introduction to Sherpa country and culture and features fantastic mountain views. It is a popular destination for first time trekers in Nepal and best suited for those who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains

Day 03: Kathmandu-Lukla By Air and trek to Phakding [2610m]
Early morning you will be picked up by your guide to go to the Kathmandu airport for our 30-minute flight to Lukla. At Lukla we will meet our porters and head north to Chablung (2700m), where we cross the Tharo Kosi river on a suspension bridge. Just past the bridge we can see the peak of Kusum Kangru (6367m, which is the most difficult of the trekking peaks. Beyond the Tharo Kosi the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2590m), where we cross a ridge marked with painted mani stones and then climb to Phakding, where we will stay overnight (3 hrs).

Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar [3420m]
From Phakding we follow the valley of the Dudh Kosi river, staying on the west bank of the river. We climb steeply over a rocky ridge toward Benkar (2710m). From here the trail continues alongside the river. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it a beautiful walk.

We cross the Kyashar Khola river and climb out of the valley to Monjo (2840m). Just beyond Monjo the trek enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, which was established in 1976 to protect a 1148 sq km area surrounding Mt Everest. Beyond the national park entrance station, the trail makes a steep rocky descent and crosses the Dhud Kosi river on a 120m-long suspension bridge towards Jorsale (2830m). After crossing this river a few times while climbing our way up the valley we will reach Namche Bazaar (3420m). Namche Bazaar is the main trading centre in this region and features numerous shops, hotels and restaurants (6 hrs).

Day 05: Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar
Acclimatisation is important before proceeding higher. There is an optional day hike to Kunde and Khumjung villages. For this hike, we start with a steep one-hour climb to the Shyangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascent towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch here we will follow a steep switchback trail descending to Chhorkung (3540m). From here it is a quick descent back to Namche Bazaar (5 hrs).

Day 06: Namche Bazaar-Tengboche monastery [3870m]
Our route of today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa, where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monestary of Tengboche sits. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world's most magnificent. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Ama Dablan, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

TENBOCHE MONASTRY: Perched on a tree-lined hilltop above the Imja Khola river and encompassed by the magnificent chasm between Thamserku and Kangtega is the Tyangboche monastery. Historically it was a favored site. Lama Sangwa Dorje, a Buddhist priest, sanctified it as a holy site over 350 years ago, and wished to build a monastery there. In 1923 a boy from neighboring Khumjung stepped forward as the reincarnation of the Lama Sangwa Dorje and founded the monastery. The monastery repeatedly suffered misfortune, as it was toppled by an earthquake in 1933 and arduously rebuilt, then destroyed again by fire in 1989. All the historical and spiritual treasure were lost to the fire. Once again the Sherpa people came together to give their labor and craftsmanship, and over years it was rebuilt again.

Day 07: Tengboche-Monjo [2840m]
Today we return to Namche Bazaar before starting our hike down to Monjo. The route to Monjo takes us steeply down along the Bhote Kosil. We cross the river and follow it to Jorsale, then on to Monjo where we overnight (7 hrs).

Day 08: Monjo-Lukla
Our route takes us along the banks of the Dudh Khosi river, then we climb uphill for an hour to reach Lukla (5 hrs).

Day 09: Lukla-Kathmandu
Today we fly back to Kathmandu. When the weather is clear, the early morning views from the plane are some of the most inspiring you'll ever experience. Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu.

Day 10: Kathmandu
