If you’re planning for a short trek in the Everest Region near Kathmandu, this is a great route. If you’re feeling very fit or are just short on time, this can be the best option for 3- 4 days.

Both Itineraries provide amazing views of the Number Himal Range and Everest, which is the best view of Everest in Nepal.
