Everest Panorama Trek is a short and remarkable excursion in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Although it is less adventurous than the Everest Base Camp Trek, the magical panoramic view of the Everest Himalayas and the cultural Sherpa villages on the way are simply amazing. The trek begins from Lukla and leads you up to Tengboche Monastery, the largest monastery of the Everest region.

Suitable for the short time trekkers, Everest Panorama Trek offers the airborne peaks of the Khumbu region, including Mt. Everest (8848m), the highest peak of the world, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many other snowy peaks. From the second day of the trek, you walk through the Sagarmatha National Park, where different floras and faunas are found. Blue pines, fir, rhododendron like floras and Himalayan monal, blood pheasant and musk deer can be seen in the national park. A delicious lunch in the Everest View Hotel, the highest placed hotel in the world is something you will enjoy during the trek.

Namche Bazaar, Khumjung and Tengboche are some of the glaring attractions of the Sherpa valleys. Exploration of the Sherpa culture, traditions, customs and spiritual pattern of lives are seen fabulous during the Everest Panorama Trekking. Tengboche Monastery is one of the highest located monasteries in Nepal, underneath of Ama Dablam peak. The iconic monastery not only portrays how the Buddhist monks live but also offers splendid mountain views. The Everest Base Camp trekkers walk 4 days more to reach there, but based on the Everest Panorama Trek itinerary, it ends in Tengboche and retrace all the way back to Lukla.

                  4. Altitude Sickness

                  Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

                  Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

                  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
                  • Fatigue or weakness
                  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
                  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
                  • Insomnia
                  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
                  • Nosebleed
                  • Persistent rapid pulse
                  • Drowsiness
                  • General malaise


                  Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

                  Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.

                    Beautiful trek with an excellent guide

                    I hadn't done much research before going on this trip. However, I was well informed before arriving by the company, and there was a fast respond to my emails.I went on this trip as a solo female traveller. I was set me up in a small group of other female travellers, which I appreciated. The guide made me feel very safe through out the trip and made us feel comfortable as a groupe. He was very informative, and he gladly answered all our questions. On our way, we heard about bad experiences with other guides ect., so I was really glad that I felt that I was in good hands. The trek itself is hard, especially because I chose to carry my own backpack, but it is so beautiful and really worth it. I can only recommend this trip! Beautiful surroundings and a great guide!
