One thing is sure that the 4,067 m peak in the lower Everest region is definitely the best view point to look into Mt Everest and other peaks east of Kathmandu. Moreover the region is easy to access and provide flexible itinerary with option of driving or flying to the trekking trail head.
The trek starts with scenic drive of flight east of Kathmandu. The rolling hills with cascading waterfalls, terraces and pristine village in the foreground of snow peaks make the journey awe-inspiring.
