You won't reach the base camp, but you'll get close enough to say "hi" to Everest from a comfy hotel with amazing views. Imagine waking up to a sunrise over snowy peaks – postcard perfect!

Our journey will start with a 45-minute flight to Lukla. It is one of the world's most scenic flights. We will begin our Trek from the banks of the Dudh Koshi River towards the Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest. From here, we'll hike to the historic Tengboche Monastery. You will enjoy the breathtaking scenery and experience its serene spiritual atmosphere. Our final trek destination is Everest View Hotel, where sunrise paints the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam. Finally, we'll descend, enjoying the landscapes and celebrating our accomplishment with a flight back to Kathmandu.

Permits and Documents Required for Everest View Hike

Before you lace up your boots, you'll need to take care of a few important permits and documents. Don't worry! We've broken them down into simple paragraphs so you can focus on your dreams of yak encounters and breathtaking sunrises!


Trekkers' Information Management System (TIMS) Permit: 

This is your official "trekking license" and is mandatory for everyone embarking on treks in Nepal. It helps track trekkers for safety and conservation purposes. Where to get it: We can handle obtaining this for you. Just provide them with your passport details well in advance.

Sagarmatha National Park Entrance Fee: 

Since the Everest View Trek falls within this UNESCO World Heritage Site, you need to pay this fee to contribute to its preservation. Where to get it: We can arrange this as part of your package.

Optional Permit (Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek): 

If you choose the longer route starting in Jiri, you'll need an additional permit for the Gaurishankar Conservation Area. This helps protect biodiversity and local communities. Where to get it: Either Hiking Bees or the local authorities in Jiri can facilitate this process.

Make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months after your return date and has enough blank pages for visas and stamps. Renewals and extra pages can be obtained from your local embassy or consulate.

2. Passport-sized Photos: 

Bring a few copies of visa applications and permit forms. Most photo booths or instant photo services can get these done quickly.

3. Travel Insurance: 

This is crucial for covering unexpected medical emergencies or trip cancellations, especially at high altitudes. Choose a plan that specifically covers trekking activities. Compare options from reputable insurance companies to find the best fit for your needs.

4. Proof of Flight Booking & Accommodation: 

Some immigration officials might ask for these during your arrival in Nepal. Having readily available copies of your confirmation emails or bookings will ease the process.
