Mini Everest Trek
The Mini Everest Trek is better known as the ‘Everest panorama trek or Everest view trek’. This trek is designed to cater to your time needs if you have any and it’s meant for those who are not comfortable with higher elevations. This Mini Everest trek will be ideal for older trekkers who haven’t burnt out their bridges & still want to have a go on mountains in the middle hills of the Khumbu. This venture would be the best option to Everest Base Camp Trek. The highest you tread hereabouts is a hike through Tengboche monastery at an altitude of 3,860m.
Our short thrilling journey starts from Kathmandu to the Khumbu region by air which is a wonderful mountain tour. Accommodation is cozy on the trails & we get to taste some good apple pie that will be better than the ones you taste in Thamel where you stay. Our Everest Mini Treks stretches through the verdant Sagarmatha National Park which is laden with lovely pine forests and gorgeous rhododendron flowers that includes plenty of wildlife as we head down the capital village town of the Khumbu region, Namche Bazaar at (3,440m).
This is where we hang out for a night to get familiar with the thin air & some stunning views of Mt. Everest. After a healthy breakfast the next morning, we begin our hike up to Tyangboche (3,860m). This is a unique Buddhist monastery & is situated in an area that is the highest in the world at (4,100m); this is where our trek in a nutshell concludes. Our short trek also includes an adventurous journey in the pretty villages of Khunde [3840m] & Khumjung [3753m] where we can strike up some interesting conversations with the local Sherpa folks who will tell us of their gripping exploits as they live on these huge mountains. We can also take part in conventional lifestyles & even do a jig to their lovely dances & this would be the perfect way to end our journey before we head back to Kathmandu & a warm soft bed at our hotel.
