A short Trek from Lukla Airport to Namche and Tengboche monastery, also known as the Glimpse of Everest Trek, is comparatively easy compared to other treks in Everest Region. The trek takes you up to Tengboche Monastery (3850m) through Namche Bazar, the gateway to Everest Base Camp. Although it is a short trek, it offers a very scenic trek giving you a superb view of the world’s highest peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Amadablam and many other snowy peaks.
This trek gives a great introduction to the traditional culture of the local community in the Khumbu Region. The trek is best suited especially for those who haven’t enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.
