Namche Bazaar Trek: Embarking on the Journey to Everest’s Heart

The Namche Bazaar Trek is the most popular and sought-after trekking route in the Everest region of Nepal, renowned for its awe-inspiring Everest Panorama View Trek. This captivating journey begins with a flight to Lukla,  home to Hillary’s tiny airport, and culminates after a night’s rest in Phagding or Manjo.
