Everest Sunrise Trek, the trekking which is popularly known by the Everest View Trek and the Everest Panorama trekking as well. It is the Everest trekking designed for those having limited time in Nepal yet wish to see Mount Everest. It also favours those hikers who wish to see Mount Everest in the short time period without trekking to Everest Base Camp.
Everest Sunrise Trek starts from scenic flight to Lukla, and then follows the same trail as 13 Days Everest Base Camp Trek or Rapid Everest Base Camp trekking through Namche Bazar (Sherpa Capital) and gradually goes up to Tengboche- final point of the trekking which offers sublime views of snowy mountains including Mount Everest.
Tengboche is also the place where the Tengboche Monastery(biggest Buddhist Monastery of Khumbu region) lies. From Tengboche, one can enjoy the wonderful sunrise and sunset views in the Himalayas and also can collect the striking views of mountains including Mt. Everest along with Ama Dablam, Lobuche, Island, Thamserku, Lhotse, Nuptse, Kongde, Twache, Khumbilla and more.
Generally, Spring season (March, April, May) and Autumn season (September, October, November) are considered as the best season for the Everest Panorama Trek. However, trekkers can enjoy the glimpse of Everest View Trekking all over the year except the rainy season(June and July).
Of course, the trekking is possible with children as well. The Everest View Trek is regarded as the best family trekking in Nepal, as it has no age group restrictions for the trek. The maximum altitude for this trekking is 3870 m/ 12697 ft. As one can easily acclimatize with this elevation, there is no or very few chance of having altitude sickness or Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS). Hence, Everest Sunrise Trek is suitable for all kinds of age group.
