Our Story
Making of Hotel Everest View

"There is nothing impossible to him who will try"
-Alexander the Great

It was the spring of 1968 when Takashi Miyahara first laid eyes on the magnificent Everest range from a ridge in Syangboche. What he saw in front of him was absolutely breathtaking. The scene captivated his heart and from that moment, he dared to dream that one day he would build a world class hotel in that same location.

Even today, building a hotel at 3880m is no small task. To have built one in the ‘60s would have been extremely challenging. With no access to roads, the construction of Hotel Everest View relied on porters carrying the necessary items on a two week trek from Lamusangu (80km from Kathmandu), or items being transported on a helicopter. Materials such as the sliding glass doors used in the rooms, the glass for the solarium, blankets and eating utensils were all imported from Japan. These were shipped to a port in Calcutta and then transported into Nepal.

The building of the hotel was undertaken with the help of local Sherpas. The project took several years to complete due to the difficult conditions. The hotel was designed by Japanese architect Yoshinobu Kumagaya. To this day, the hotel receives praise for the simple yet elegant design that coexists beautifully with its pristine surrounding. Miyahara and his team’s hard work and determination eventually paid off as Hotel Everest View opened its doors to visitors in 1971.

This hotel was built with a dream that guests from all over the world can come and enjoy a 360 degree view of the Himalayas, appreciate Mt. Everest from every room and be treated with great hospitality. It is this unparalleled location and experience that makes a visit to Hotel Everest View a once in a lifetime trip. For a few, it is a journey that is taken many, many times.

How to get there

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain

We are able to offer two options in your journey to reach the Hotel. For those who are short on time and prefer to travel in luxury, we can arrange for direct helicopter flights. For the adventure seekers who want to experience trekking first hand, we can arrange for trekking to the Hotel from Lukla village. Kindly click on each photo for further details.

Hotel Everest View heli pad

Travel in Luxury

It is possible to charter a five seater helicopter that will take you directly from Kathmandu to Syangboche airstrip (45 min walk from the hotel) or land at the hotel’s heli pad. We recommend this option for those who may not be able to walk long distances or have limited time.

During the peak months in spring and autumn, we are able to offer helicopter shuttle service between Lukla and Syangboche. The exact dates differ every year, the service would generally be around mid March to early May and early October to early December. With this shuttle service, visitors would be able to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla on a domestic airline and take the helicopter from Lukla to Syangboche (available both ways). This route would be more economical than chartering directly from Kathmandu.

Khumjung village Everest region

Khumjung (3780M) & Namche (3440m) villages

Comfortable hike, Duration 4-5 hrs
Located 20 minutes away from Hotel Everest View, Khumjung is the largest Sherpa village in the Khumbu region. Carved into the hillside at the foot of the sacred Mt. Khumbu-yul-Iha (5761m), the village has a monastery that displays a scalp claimed to be from a yeti (abominable snowman) and a school founded by Sir Edmund Hillary. It is also possible to visit the traditional Sherpa houses as there are still a few remaining in this village.

For those interested in spotting the Danphe (Impeyan Pheasant - Nepal’s national bird), the jungles nearby Khumbjung/Syangboche is a good area. This beautiful bird with multi colored iridescent plumage is generally spotted early in the morning or late afternoon. The nearby forest hosts several other species of birds and wildlife. It may be possible to see animals such as the Himalayan Tahr (wild goat) and if you are lucky, the diminutive and endangered musk deer.

An hour hike from HEV can take visitors to Namche Bazaar, a popular destination for trekkers in the Khumbu region. Known as the 'gateway to Everest', visitors can enjoy the vibrant shops and restaurants located on its crescent shaped slopes.
Tengboche Monastery Mani Rimdu festival

Tengboche Monastery (3867 m)

Challenging hike, Duration 7-8 hrs
The view from Tengboche Monastery is deemed to be absolutely amazing, with AmaDablam (6856m), Kangtega (6685m), Everest (8848m), and Thamserku (6608m) appearing in close proximity. From Hotel Everest View, we recommend going to Tengboche by horse. The trail is challenging even on a horse as it goes downhill to 3200m and then goes straight uphill to reach the village. Although it is possible to go to Tengboche as a day trip for the very fit trekkers or if using a horse (not used for downhill), the general recommendation would be to spend one night there if interested.

The monastery is the largest in the area and holds the annual Mani Rimdu festival in November. This popular festival attracts locals as well as tourists. It is filled with music and dance in richly colored costumes and masks representing the deities.
Mongla village Gokyo route

Mongla (3980m)

Moderate hike, Duration 6-7 hours
Mongla village is located in the popular trekking route to Gokyo, and it takes around 3 hours hike from the hotel. Mongla offers enchanting views of Tabuche (6367m), Kangtega (6685m), Thamserku (6608m) and AmaDablam (6856m), and of the Phortse village.
Khunde Peak Everest region

Khunde Peak (4200m)

Moderate hike, Duration 6-7 hrs
For visitors who would like an attempt to climb over 4000m, Khunde Peak offers a great choice. 4 hours hike will get you to the peak, where you will be rewarded by a magnificent panoramic view of the Himalayan giants and the Thame valley. As there are no settlements nearby, you can enjoy this beautiful scenery in complete serenity.
