This trek is comparatively easy one to some of other treks. The trek takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). Although, it is a short trek, offers very scenic trek giving you a really superb view of the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Amadablam & other many snowy peaks.
This trek starts from Lukla after taking 30 minutes scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From there we trek up to Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery), Khumjung village, which offers a very nice settlement of Sherpas people.
This trek definitely gives a great introduction to Sherpa country & its culture along with fine mountain views. During trekking, you really find the area as a very popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. The trek is best suited especially for those people who haven't enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.
