History of Hotel Everest View:

In the period of spring, Takashi Miyahara first laid eyes on the magnificent Everest range from a ridge in Syangboche in 1968. He realizes the view in front of him was breathtaking, and the scene captivated his heart. From that moment, he dared to dream that one day he would build a world-class hotel in that same location.

Building a Hotel at an altitude of 3880m is genuinely a daring task even today. We can imagine how hard and challenging it has been to make in the 60s. At that time, there was no access to roads, and the construction would entirely rely on porters carrying the necessary items on a two-week trek from Lamusangu, 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.

Hence building a hotel at such an altitude and facing different obstacles is a daring task. The project took several years to complete, and Japanese architect Yoshinobu Kumagaya designed the hotel. This hotel was undertaken with the help of local sherpas. The hotel opened its doors in 1971 for visitors. The hotel was built to serve a 360-degree view of the Himalayas to visitors that come from across the world. Through its spectacular mountain views and serene environment, visits Hotel Everest View trek a once-in-a-lifetime trip. For a few, it is a journey that is taken many, many times.
