Everest Photography Trek - Photographic Journey to the Everest Region in Nepal

This Photography Trek into the Everest region was designed with photography in mind, but you don’t need to be a photographer to appreciate the beauty of the Himalayas! The Everest Photography Trek in Nepal features the great beauty of the highest and stunning peaks and mesmerizing lakes in the world. We have curated the itinerary with comparatively fewer days of trekking between tea houses, no major high passes to climb and days spent in the best location for the photography. Especially scenic will be 4 nights at Gokyo and 4 nights at Pangboche. Both with extraordinary day hikes possibilities. Thus, this specially designed itinerary of Everest Photography Trek is to freeze the Spellbound Himalayas’ Wonders at its best form.

Experience the epic scenery of the Everest region of Nepal on this Photography oriented fully supported 22-day trek.

Trekking up to Gokyo, the yak herder’s settlement. we explore and enjoy the Sherpa hospitality, as we ascend through the rhododendron and conifer forest. Four of the eight highest peaks of Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Mt Everest hover above sparkling turquoise Gokyo lakes. Similarly, at Pangboche we will be in the shadow of the colossal peak of Amadablam and Touche.

 

This Photography Trek to Everest region in the Himalayas is a fully supported 22 days trip in Nepal. We will be sleeping and eating in a family-run teahouse along the route. Rooms are small with twin beds, and not heated, but we will provide a warm sleeping bag for a good night's sleep. You will be trekking at Approximately 95 km distance with around 40 – 60 km optional day hiking around.

 

As on other treks in the Himalayas. Mountain Monarch follows the responsible trekking policy of 1 Trekker: 1 Porter to ensure less weight for the porter to carry while on your adventure journey. Safety of trek members and crew on top agenda. We carry an Oxygen cylinder with comprehensive first aid kits as a safety backup.
