Trip Overview

Short Everest Base Camp Trek is for those reckless trekkers who want to step on the foot of mighty Mt. Everest(8848m) within a short time duration. Though the package doesn't include long trekking days in its itinerary, it does ensure to let travellers revel all the attractions of the Everest Region.

There are many adventure maniacs throughout the world who dream of accomplishing the Everest Base Camp Trek once in a lifetime. For such people, there are several Everest Base Camp trekking packages. No matter whether you choose the Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek Via Gokyo Lakes, or other similar packages each of them takes you to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. There are no queries regarding whether all the package takes the trekkers to the Base Camp or not. However, each adventure seeker may not be blessed with the opulent time to spend in the Himalayas. Thus considering the trekking desires of such people, this short Everest Base Camp Trekking package is designed.

This package is far more similar to that of the normal Everest Base Camp Trekking. The only difference between these two treks is the number of trekking days. Eliminating the acclimatization days from the normal Everest Base Camp Trek package, this Short Everest Base Camp Trek is customized.

Despite being the short day's itinerary, the appealing views of mountains and glaciers including Mt. Everest, Mt.Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Pumori, Khumbu Glacier and many other makes you forget all the sufferings. Letting you enter into the lush forest of Sagarmatha National Park, this short venture rewards you with a glimpse of diverse flora and fauna species also. Furthermore, the religious monasteries, the herds of Yaks, and the benevolent Sherpa People and their lifestyle adds an extra charm to your journey.

To join this mind-boggling Everest Base Camp Short trek, one must have a good fitness level and a strong set of mind. Further, it is also necessary for him/her to have the previous experience of being at a high altitude. As the short trek around Everest does not involve the acclimatization days in its itinerary, this trek is definitely not for the newbie trekker. For beginner trekkers, there are other several Everest Region trekking packages.

This short trek to Everest Base Camp starts after the scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Following the way along the Dudhkshi river, trekkers will trek through the beautiful settlements of Phakding and Monjo. Further continuing the walk, there comes the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Gate on the way before reaching Namche. Known as the commercial hub of the Everest region, Namche Bazaar houses the region's best cafes, bars, and shops. Meeting with the bold Sherpa people and witnessing the beautiful mountain scenery is the prime attraction of this place. Further, a stroll around the street market of Namche makes you extol more and more about this place.

After spending the pleasing night at Namche, the next day the trail takes the trekkers to the eminent pilgrimage destination of the Everest Region, Tengboche. Embellished with prayer wheels, colourful prayer flags, and several other amenities, Tengboche Monastery is the gem of the Everest Region. With the Mt. Ama Dablam on the backdrop, the monastery gathers lots of Buddhist pilgrims and travellers mainly during the Mani Rimdu Festival.

Within a few hours of walk from Tengboche, there comes Dingboche. Popular as the Summer Valley of the region, Dingboche boasts spectacular mountain vistas and lets you take the best shots as well. Proceeding the journey from Dingboche, the Everest Base Camp Short Trek takes you to the Lobuche. A gradual ascend via the moraine glacier and boulders along the Imja River leads you to the last teahouse stop of the Everest region and that is Gorakshep.

Further continuing the trek towards Everest Base Camp from Gorakshep, you will realize all your hardships getting paid off. The feeling of being at the foot of the Everest Base Camp is truly something that you will reminisce on your entire life.

Feast your eyes with the wonders of the Everest Base Camp and capture some moments on your camera before making your return to the Gorakshep. Not much far away from Gorakshep another major highlight is waiting for you. And that is the highest trek point of the Short Everest Base Camp Trek, Kalapatthar. Following the adventurous trail from Gorakshep to Kalapatthar, enjoy the stunning sunrise view over Mount Everest and other alluring peaks.

After immersing yourself in the wilderness of the Everest Region take a flight back to Kathmandu from Lukla.

Short Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty:

Opting for the normal Everest Base Camp Trek is difficult in itself. And when the number of trekking days gets decreased from that of normal trek package just imagine how difficult might be the Short Everest Base Camp trek.

Undoubtedly this short trek around Everest is more favourable to people with previous high altitude trekking experience. But the sharp gain of altitude on a daily basis makes the trek difficult even for them.

This rapid Everest Base Camp trek commences from Lukla(2800m) and takes you up to the highest elevation of 5500m at Kala Patthar within a short time duration. Gaining a high elevation every day without the acclimatization rest greatly increases the risk of acute mountain sickness. Thus, before you embark on the journey of Everest Base Camp Short Trek make sure to grab much information about the acute mountain sickness.

To prevent yourself from altitude sickness do remember to avoid alcohol and keep yourself hydrated throughout the journey. If you notice any of the symptoms of altitude sickness like dizziness, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, and like that then don't forget to take immediate help from your travel guide.

Besides the altitude sickness, the type of trekking trails also matters a lot in making your trek strenuous. While proceeding towards the higher altitudes, you can see the number of boulders and glaciers on your way. Trekking over these glaciers and boulders is not an easy task for anyone. So, prepare your physics and mentality for such a type of walk.

As the packing of your trekking gears plays an important role in making your trek either easier or difficult. Therefore, depending upon the season you are trekking make your packings accordingly.

If you don't find yourself strong enough to cope up with all such challenges then go for an easier Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, Everest View Treks, or other similar packages.
