HOTEL EVEREST VIEW
(The highest placed hotel in the world at 3,880 m.)

Location

Hotel Everest View (HEV) situated at 3,880m. height in the Sagarmatha National Park is the highest located hotel in the world and commands a spectacular view of Mt. Everest (8,848 m.). Each room in HEV affords a panoramic view of Everest and many other high and awe-inspiring peaks including Amadablam (6,856 m.), described by many as the most beautiful peak they have ever seen.


Transportation

Flight form Kathmandu to the hotel's airstrip at Shyangboche 3810m takes 50 minutes. During this early morning flight the entire panorama of the great snow-clad Himalaya unfolds as the flight climbs out of Kathmandu valley and flies above endless hills blanketed with terraces and small village.

The walk form the airstrip to the hotel takes about 45 minutes on a trail that is well maintained, although rocky and steep for the first few hundred feet. It is about 1-mile walk and a gain of 300 feet elevation. Clients preferring to go to hotel directly can request for charter helicopter flights.


The Hotel

You cannot see the hotel until you are almost there. Hidden on a ridge overlooking Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Tawoche, the hotel blends gracefully with its surrounding.

Ancient stones carved with the Tibetan Buddhist inscription 'Om mani padme hum' form part of the hotel's interior walls, a constant reminder of the deep religious sentiments of the local people towards their land mountains.

The hotel's rooms are spacious, modern and comfortable. Every guest room has a panoramic view of Mt. Everest through glass doors opening onto a sunny veranda.

The waiters, cook and other staff at the hotel are Sherpas from nearby villages. These people of Tibetan origin achieved fame as mountain guide during expeditions to many Himalayan peaks. If you wish to explore the surrounding, ask at the hotel desk for a Sherpa to guide you among the maze of houses and field to temples, interesting monuments and few days treks. You can walk to Sherpa villages and monasteries to spend the night camped in a tent.


Activities

There are no planned activities at the Hotel Everest View, yet many facilities are available to make your stay interesting and rewarding. You can spend hours watching the ever-changing lighting and cloud formations on the mountains and watching great birds circling overhead. You can sit around the hotel's fireplace and discuss the day's happenings with other guests.

Trekkers who have walked from Kathmandu and even such notables as mountaineers who have just climbed Mt. Everest often stop at the Everest View to enjoy the good food and comfortable surroundings and lend an air of adventure to fireside conversations.

One night will give you only a taste of what awaits you in the Everest region. Two nights at the hotel will provide a full day in which to take a short hike. A week at the Everest View and the surrounding area will still leave you with unfulfilled dreams and uncompleted adventures.
