Everest Panorama Trek is a short teahouse trekking experience that takes you to the Khumbu region of Nepal, the region that holds the pride of having the world’s highest mountain – Everest. Like all other treks to the Everest region, the Panorama trek starts with an incredible flight to Lukla. For the first-timers, it’s indeed a surprise.

We can applaud some close-up views of mountains like Mt. Tawache, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Amadablam Mt. Cho-Oyu, etc. from here.

Tengboche is not only popular for the monastery but the close-up views of mountains from the periphery is truly incredible. We can see the great Mt. Amadablam clear and close just above the monastery. We conclude our trek with a walk back to Lukla via Namche and Khumjung village.
