Everest View Trek is an easy trek in the Everest region. This trek is named after the Everest View Hotel. It is the highest-altitude hotel in the world located at 3,880 meters.

As the name suggests, it is mainly focused on having the best view of Mount Everest. However, one can reach the place without much hard walking.

The hotel is the only five-star standard started in 1971 by a Japanese entrepreneur. The hotel is the must-reach-destination while you are in the Everest region.

From here, you can see the 360-degree view of jaw-dropping view of the inspiring peaks. Having breakfast or lunch by gazing at Mt. Everest and other neighboring peaks is something one can rarely get in their life!

To your utter wonder, you can see Mt. Everest from every room of the hotel. The evergreen forests of pine and rhododendron always soothe your mind and soul.
