Everest view from the Renjo La- Everest The Hard Way Trek
Everest view from the Renjo La- Everest The Hard Way Trek

A very challenging Himalayan trek and a quieter trek to Everest Base Camp. Instead of following the usual route to Everest Base Camp this trek goes even more off the beaten track and includes the tough ascent of the Renjo La to Gokyo, then across the Cho La and a backdoor route to EBC. Definitely the realm of the serious, commited and very strong trekker. Possibly the greatest Nepal walking holiday.

The altitudes involved in this trek up to EBC demand respect and thus the walking becomes more challenging as a result. There's the possibility to extend this trek and include the Kongma La on the return from Everest Base Camp to form what has become known as the Three Passes Everest Trek.

See our Everest The Hard Way trek page for more.

Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam from the Everest View Hotel
Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam from the Everest View Hotel

It's not called the Everest View Hotel for nothing.

Located at 3880m, the Everest View Hotel is a short walk up from Namche Bazaar, and if you're hiking to Everest Base Camp, it's a handy place to stop for refreshments and take in the views.

But, if you're also looking for a shorter Everest trek then it makes for a great objective as you can see the summit of Everest rising above the Nuptse Ridge, Lhotse and Ama Dablam too.

Everest from space
Everest from space

In this photo from NASA Mount Everest can be seen as the "dark" mountain just to the right of centre.

The other "dark" mountain to the left is Makalu.

So, what you're looking at here is a view of Everest (from up high) from Tibet. You should be able to make out the route to Everest Base Camp and the Rongbuk too.

Beyond the Himalayas at the top of the photo and in clouds is in Nepal.

Chances are that a space flight to see Everest isn't a realistic proposition in the near future.

But, maybe an Everest trek is!
