Difficulty Level of the Family Trek

The trekking starts from the Domestic Airport of Kathmandu to Lukla Airport by small plane in Nepal. As shown on the Legend of the Route map, the red line indicates the difficulty level. However, there is no red line on the Everest Family trekking as the trek doesn’t involve any problematic paths. This is why everyone can trek with their family and children all the time of the year.

Main Hiking Route

The route map of the Everest Family trek depicts the main hiking route just below the difficulty level. The orange line represents the main hiking trail on the Map. The orange line on the Everest Family trek starts from Lukla and goes until Khumjung village and monastery. You can see Mount Everest from Khumjung and the historical monastery. Of course, you may explore the local village and school of Adman Hillary.

Secondary Routes

The Everest Family trek route map indicates a secondary route with an orange dotted line. The secondary route is an option for other trekking trails besides the hiking trail. The route map shows that the secondary route starts from Kyanjuma and goes to Tyangbouche Monastery, Everest Base Camp, Island Peak, Everest Three Passes Trek, Gokyo Valley, Cho La Pass, and Renjo La Pass.


The symbol of binoculars on the Everest Family trek route map represents the viewpoints on the journey’s trail. The route map showcases the three different views. However, on the trip to the Everest Family trek, trekkers only get to one, the viewpoint of Khumjung. You can enjoy the view of the numerous mountain peaks, including Mount Everest, from the Khumjung without getting to the higher elevation. Khumbila, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, and Lhotse are the other significant mountain peaks that are awe-inspiring from the Khumjung viewpoint. Everest Base Camp and Kakapathar are the other best trek map viewpoints.


The Everest Family Trek map includes various mountain peaks on the left corner of the Map. Every trekker can see all the mountains shown on the Map throughout the journey to the trek. Mount Everest (8848 meters but recently is 8848.68 ), Khumbila (5761m), Ama Dabkam (6623m), Cho Oyu (3133m), Pumori (7165m), and Lhotse (8501m) are eye-catching from the viewpoint of Khumjung. Furthermore, views of Mount Lingtren (6749m), Lhotseshar (8393m), Nuptse (7879m), and Island Peak (6189m) will accompany you throughout your journey.


The blue circle on the route map of the Everest Family trek represents Lakes. The icons of the Lakes are settled into two different areas on the Map.  One lies in the Gokyo Valley, and the other one is at the bottom of the Island Peak. However, trekkers cannot see these lakes due to the distance on their journey.

Similarly, Gokyo Lake is a very famous Lake in the Khumbu area. Four other lakes are listed together. Most people can trek to Gokyo Valley and Ri. It is Four days further than from Khumjung and Namche Village. If you are talking about Lake of the Island Peak, it is pretty unreachable and challenging because it is beside the trekking trail.

Highest Altitude

The route map includes the elevation of each of the trekking peaks and hiking destinations. The Legend of the Map shows that the highest elevation trekkers reach on the Everest Family trek is 3800m at Khumjung via Shyanbuche Airport. There is no need to worry about the altitude because there are small forests along the trekking trail and path. We can easily breathe. Traveling with your family and Child is another of the best regions. We fully suggest traveling with seniors and children.

Suspension bridges

Throughout the trek to Everest Family, There are too many different suspension bridges. Some of them are shaking metal bridges, and some of them are wooden bridges along the trekking trail. However, the suspension bridges pass through Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, and Jorshalle on the connecting way to the Namche Bazaar. Yet, those bridges are connected to the higher parts of the Everest trekking trails and lodges.

Glacier during the Trek

The Everest family trek does not take you to higher-altitude trekking trails. It is still a lowland trek in the Everest area. Because of this, we are unable to touch the Glacier, but we can see it from a distance. There are nearby Amadablam, Thamserku, Kusum Kangaroo, and Lhotse, and we can see the Glacier during the trekking trail.


The trekking journey to Everest Family exposes you to nature’s beauty and provides cultural immersion. The Khumbu region is the King of the Buddhist religion. Similarly, Many different areas have monasteries in the Family trekking trail. As every local of the Sagarmatha region follows Buddhism, we can find monasteries in every corner; even the inscription OM MANE PADHME HU is written on the rocks. Likewise, Lukla, Ghat, Phakding, Manjo, Jorshalle, Namche Bazaar, and Khumjung have prominent Monasteries. Still, you can see many different monasteries higher along the way to Everest Base Camp.


For security purposes, there are several checkpoints in the Everest region. On the trip to the Everest Family trek, trekkers pass through two different checkpoints: one at Lukla and the other between Monjo and Namche Bazaar. Every client must have a trekking pass and National Park Permits to enter Sagarmatha National Park.
