Everest View Trek Introduction

The Everest View Trek is ideally suitable for those who don’t want to trek Everest Base Camp. However, it provides a fair glimpse into the lives of locals from the Everest region. Also, it allows you amazing views of Mount Everest and surrounding mountains and a ride to the famous Tengboche Monastery.

This trek is a classic choice for you to avoid altitude sickness and trek to the Everest region as well. It is a less time-consuming but beautiful and fulfilling trek to the Everest region. You will be chased by a marvelous view of the highest mountain in the world, Everest. Everest view trek will take you to the local Sherpa life with an extraordinary, renowned town, where trekkers will rest and appreciate the lifestyle and great hospitality.
