Overview

The Everest  Base Camp Short Trek skillfully integrates all of the finest features and characteristics of the Everest region to present you with a short trekking experience that is ideal for tourists who are short on time. This trek is ideal for people who are interested in visiting Everest but do not have a lot of time to spend there. The jovial trekking trail that passes through the ethnic Sherpa villages of the region and coruscates around landscapes that are extremely beautiful and refreshing offers a trekking journey that truly captures the essence of the Nepalese mountain life. The villages that you will pass through are home to a variety of different ethnic groups. Because of the various attractions that are associated with both the region's cultural milieu and its natural surroundings, Khumbu has earned the reputation of being one of the most amazing places in the world to go trekking. 

During this short trek to Everest Base Camp, we would be traversing rickety wooden and suspension bridges while the Imja Khola and the Dudh Koshi Rivers wind around several hills and valleys. Eventually, you would come across huge open areas of boulder-dotted pastures and river basins. Both the movement of herds of yaks, sheep, and mountain goats from one site to another and the Sherpa people going about their daily lives in the mountains, both of which are quite humbling to see, are carried out in the same manner. All the way up to Gorakshep, the path is lined by Buddhist monasteries, stupas, and chortens along its whole length. You will get the opportunity to view prayer flags of various colors in addition to stones that have been inscribed with a variety of Buddhist mantras written in Tibetan script. The majestic Buddhist monastery that may be found in the town of Tengboche contributes to the trip's overall sense of spiritual significance. When you finally make it to base camp and get your first glimpse of Everest in the morning sun from the Khumbu Glacier, which is the longest glacier of its kind, the adventure will have finally reached its pinnacle point. During the trip, our guide will meet with you each night to provide you with a detailed description of the schedule as well as show you the Everest Base Camp Map for the next day and will be more than pleased to assist you in answering any questions that you may have

So join Accessible Adventure on this short EBC trek and get the experience of a lifetime.

Best Season for Everest Base Camp Short Trek

The best times to hike to Everest Base Camp are from late September to early November and from February to May, when temperatures can get as low as -6°C and the weather is usually stable.

In the spring (February-May), you will be able to see flowers like rhododendrons in bloom in the lush forests we will walk through on the trek. The hills will be full of life and green when you get there. Spring may be the busiest time of year in the area as a whole.

In the fall (September-November), the sky is usually clearer, and the views of the vistas, valleys, and mountains from the many points of view along the trek are absolutely stunning. Hikers like this time of year because there is less heat haze and cloud cover, so the views are more stunning. One benefit of trekking at this time of year is that you can choose one of the area's less popular routes, which still offer beautiful views without as much noise as the more popular routes.

Is "Everest Base Camp Short Trek" for me?

Everest Base Camp Trip is a MEDIUM difficulty trek. Within the Nepal Trek Grading system, this trek is classed as Grade B with some Grade C features. It suggests that anyone in good health and with sufficient resolve can complete the journey. However, novice hikers would need to make the necessary preparations. The climb should pose no difficulties for seasoned hikers, especially those with expertise traveling at high altitudes.

In autumn-winter, the hike can experience temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius, which are made harsher by the region's regular high-velocity winds. Therefore, adequate gear and mental preparation are necessary for the journey. At the peak of Kalapatthar, the walk reaches its highest altitude of 5,545 meters. In addition to Nagerjun hill's summit, the journey includes a number of other vantage locations above 5,000 meters. As a result, altitude sickness is a genuine concern in this region, and acclimatization must be taken into mind.

We get up early in Kathmandu and have breakfast before heading to the airport and then to Lukla. Even the journey to Lukla is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Because of the airfield's high altitude and geographical location, the runway's length is just 530 meters. At Lukla, we meet the porters who will assist us with our luggage throughout the journey.

We begin our trip from Lukla to Phakding for a beautiful view of Kusum Kangraru and a lush, verdant area. The journey begins as we pass through the National Luminary Pasang Lhamu Memorial Gate. Our presence on the route will be recorded by the police at the entrance. We arrive in Phakding after crossing suspension bridges, traveling alongside the Dudh Koshi River, and momentarily stopping to drink, eat, and refresh ourselves. Our trekking guide will help us choose our accommodations at the Phakding teahouse. Depending on when we get in the area, we may want to explore the village and monasteries.

After waking up early in Phakding, eating breakfast, and handing over our stuff to our porters, we set off on the trail to Namche Bazaar, where we enter the Sagarmatha National Park. To enter the park at Manju, we will need to obtain permission at the check post. The trek will be primarily downhill at first, with stops at dry woodland pathways, rhododendron forests, stone steps, and big mani stones. After lunch in Jorshalle, we begin ascending through Himalayan pine and cedar woodlands. Depending on the weather and visibility, we may catch our first glimpse of Mt. Everest while crossing a renowned suspension bridge. On our way to Namche, we'll pass several suspension bridges, including the famed Hillary Bridge, one of the highest and largest in the Khumbu region. We follow the Dudh Koshi to Namche Bazaar, a well-known town.

Namche is a historic trading post where Tibetan and Nepalese merchants exchange textiles, dried meat, and salt. Namche is the main trading center in Khumbu, attracting traders from the Himalayas and the lowlands, as well as being a great site to buy traditional products. You'll spend two days in Namche to acclimate, visit surrounding markets, and spend time with your coworkers. While hiking, we get our first glimpses of Everest and other peaks.

The full day has been set aside for acclimatization as we approach 3000m above sea level. Minor symptoms of low oxygen may develop in certain travelers, but our bodies will ultimately adjust. After breakfast, we proceed to the Sagarmatha National Park Museum, where you will be able to observe vintage climbing equipment, historical images of past climbers, flora found in the region, and memorandums of Tenzing Norgay and Hillary during their climb. Aside from the Museum's main hall, there is an Army Camp. We leave the museum and proceed to the Everest View Hotel. The Thamserku and other mountain peaks can be seen clearly from the region's many ridges. The region is home to the Nepalese national bird, the Lophophorous, as well as countless Yaks. We can have refreshments and see the several mountains we observed on our tour closer and with a better view from the Everest view hotel. Among the peaks visible from the hotel are Kong De, Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, and Ama Dablam, the most beautiful mountain in the world. We also get a sneak peek at the route we'll be going tomorrow. Khungdi La, which can also be viewed from the hotel, is considered holy and so banned to climb. Walking now to the Sherpa settlement of Khumjung, where the Hillary Foundation has erected a school. A monastery in Namche Bazaar preserves the mysterious Yeti's scalp. Namche Bazaar provides numerous opportunities for local shopping, refreshments such as coffee and cake, and much more.

After breakfast, we'll get dressed, grab our hiking poles, and set off in the direction of Tengboche. We will enjoy hiking over level terrain on a hillside with beautiful views of Ama Dablam and peeks of Everest. After that, we primarily descend through lovely rhododendron forests and cross a stunning suspension bridge to reach Phunki Thangka, where we will be having lunch.  We will also be able to witness a stupa created by the Tenzing Norgay foundation, as well as another stupa named after Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, Nepal's first female climber. We continue walking till we reach Kyangjuma, where the paths to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri split.

The continuous and uncomplicated path descends at Pungki Thanka far into the Dudh Koshi Valley to  Everest. From there, it climbs the right slope of the Dudh Koshi valley to Tengboche Monastery. Many believe Tengboche to be one of the outstanding perspectives in the entire Khumbu region. Tengboche is the spiritual center of the Khumbu. Although the ascent is difficult, the stunning views of Mount Amadablam and, on a clear day, Mt. Everest and its neighboring summits like as Tobuche and Chola Che more than compensate. The Tengboche Monastery opens in the evening, with a short rite that will be an absolutely incredible spiritual experience.

We eat breakfast first thing in the morning and follow ridged path routes. There are various tea houses and lodges that provide boarding and lodging. We can take a short break at one of these tea cafes to rest and drink to rehydrate and re-energize ourselves. We gradually ascend after crossing a river, where we may view Thar, Musk Deer, Yaks, and horses. At the top of the hill, there is an impressive gate with a big boulder in the corner etched with a large serpent.

We continue on through steep, windy, and dusty terrain until we arrive at Lower Pangboche. We arrive in Samare after about an hour's trek from Lower Pangboche, where we eat our lunch for the day. We descend through beautiful forests and cross the Imja Khola, with views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse, and other summits. The paths to Pheriche and Dingboche split here. Large trees can be spotted sparser around the area as one moves towards the Dingboche path. We will eventually reach locations where we will be unable to see any trees. We glimpse Taboche and Chola Che as we climb to a vantage point. Today's walk could be the most efficient because we won't lose as much altitude as on past days. The trail then leads through grasslands to Dingboche, commonly known as the "summer valley." The famous Island peak is visible for the first time from Dingboche.

It's a fantastic feeling to wake up and see the Himalayas from your hotel room. Getting ready for our second acclimatization day, which would include a 6-hour climb to an elevation of 5100m. During the day, there are two possibilities for the acclimation walk: climb Nagerjun hill or go to Chhukung. The Nagerjun route is popular since it involves climbing Nagerjun, a hill on the sides of the Chhukung valley right above Dingboche, after breakfast. The main concept of acclimatization is to sleep low and ascend high.

 

Option 1: Ascend to Nagerjun.

 

A physically tough day is made possible by the occasionally steep pathway. Climbing the slope at this altitude can take up to five hours. From this height, you can see Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m), and Ama Dablam for the first time (6856m). On a clear day, you might even be able to see Makalu, the world's fifth-highest peak, which provides breathtaking views over the Pheriche Valley.

 

Option 2: Chhukung Valley

Following the Chhukung river, we arrive in the village of Chhukung, where we can have lunch and spend some time. We can also go to the beginning of the trail that leads to Island Peak if we like. Trekkers who want to climb the Kongma La frequently lodge at Chhukung. The valley also provides views of Lobuche, Taboche, and Thamserku.

After a brief rest, you will begin the two-hour ascent back to Dingboche. After lunch, take a well-deserved snooze because the temperature may drop quickly as the sun sets over the mountain peaks. Dingboche will also be visited for a second night.

Today's journey begins with a direct ascent to Dingboche Hill as we explore the area around the Phirinche Valley, followed by a one- to two-hour hike across progressively steeper hills to Thukla Dhugla, where we will have lunch. The trek to Dughla takes you through a vast valley floor, past the hikers' aid station at Pheriche (4240 m). The Himalayan Rescue Association, which also provides medical care and assistance to trekkers, assists Western doctors in acting as volunteers on this journey. We trek to the summit of the peak seen from Dhugla. We feel like we've arrived in heaven once we reach the summit because the Himalayas surround us. There are also several memorials with embedded recollections of climbers who died on Mount Everest. This memorial depicts the genuine reality of mountain climbing, which is highly dangerous even when fully trained. Walking a little further brings us to magnificent views of Lobuche peak, and walking a little further brings us to our Lobuche teahouse. After a short rest at Lobuche, we take a short climb to a viewpoint from which we can see the Khumbu glacier and our next day's goal, Everest base camp. From the viewpoint, we see mountains like Pumori, Lobuche, Chinri, Lola Mountain and others. We return to our guesthouse for the night after spending some time on the lookout. Lobuche has an excellent sunset view.

We will eventually reach Everest Base Camp on the ninth day, which will be the most significant of our expedition. We begin by taking a leisurely stroll along rocky paths to Gorakshep after waking up quite early to get breakfast. We can see mountains on each side of the road the entire way. We arrive in Gorekshep after walking over glacier routes and ridges, where we have lunch and leave most of our possessions, carrying only a small bag.

As we make our way to the base camp, we pass between hills and occasionally see avalanches in the mountains nearby. Although there isn't much height gain, the walk might be difficult due to the numerous ups and downs and the altitude. We will arrive at Everest Base Camp after two hours of walking. There are numerous forbidden areas near the base camp. Glaciers and icefalls are not permitted. This is the starting point for Everest trips. Everest base camp transforms into a tiny community during the spring season. You will have the opportunity to meet numerous climbers and trekkers on their route to Everest. You can shoot a lot of pictures with your camera, enjoy the beautiful environment, and have a good time at EBC. We return to Gorekshep after spending an hour or two at the base camp. If the weather permits, we can witness a magnificent sunset near Everest from Gorekshep. We'll have supper and spend the night at a neighboring lodge after returning to Gorakshep via the same path.

Kalapattar (5545m) is the best vantage point to see Mount Everest's complete south face as well as the other peaks, and today we do just that: hike up to Kalapattar (5545m), which offers the best views of Mount Everest and the spectacular Himalayan range. We will get up very early before daybreak to witness the phenomenon from Kalapatthar, where we will see the most spectacular sunrise in the Himalayas. Because of the high altitude of Kalapattar, altitude sickness should be avoided. The route to Kalapatthar is quite strenuous as we ascend the peak. Kalapatthar offers views of almost 20 peaks. There is a 360-degree vista from where we are. Everest appears so close that it will feel practically touchable as we extend our arms. After returning from our morning climb from Kalapattar to Gorakshep, we gather our belongings, eat lunch, and descend to Pheriche along the same route we used to Thukla. We follow the Pherinche valley path from Thukla, which is one of the windiest places in the Everest zone. Pherinche contains the highest hospital in the Khumbu region as well which can be visited. We spend the night in Pherinche.

We get up early and begin our trekking activities shortly after eating breakfast. As we swiftly descend to lower altitudes, we realize that breathing becomes much easier. We take a different route from Pheriche to Samare (the trail that we did not use before to trek up). We enjoy the stroll through the settlements of Orsho and Samare before arriving at Pangboche where we get to enjoy views ofof Ama Dablam. As we descend to lower altitudes from Samare, the greenery reappears. We leave Pangboche, cross the Imja Khola, and rejoin the classic Everest base camp path, arriving in Tengboche in about 2 hours for lunch. The path to Namche is relatively straightforward because it is largely a descent with brief ascents. Tengboche is one of the trip's brief ascents. We descend to Pungki Thanka, have another hard ascent to Kyangjuma, and then stroll easily along the Imja Khola to Namche Bazaar. In Namche Bazaar, we can have drinks, including alcohol.

As the sun rises this morning, it reflects our satisfaction and sense of accomplishment. We gather our luggage and prepare to go early in the morning from Lukla to Kathmandu. Weather causes frequent flight delays and cancellations in Lukla. Due to adverse weather in the afternoon, flights also depart in the morning. After landing in Kathmandu and settling into your accommodations, you will have free time until the end of the day. It is recommended that you visit a spa, go on a short day trip to see UNESCO historical sites, or simply relax at your hotel. Make the most of your trip to Nepal. Later, spend the night in Kathmandu at a hotel.

Hiking Options for the Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek

Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal is the most recognized tour among extreme adventure lovers all over the world. There are several trekking paths available to us. The options vary depending on your duration of stay, desire for adventure,v, and determination. First, the usual walking path is from Lukla, which is shorter and travels directly to the base camp. The route begins in Lukla and continues through Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep villages. The distance between Lukla and Mount Everest base camp is approximately 38.5 miles (62 Kilometers). After Gorakshep, you arrive at your last destination. This path to Mt. Everest Base Camp is more popular. As a result, it's pretty safe. 
On the way, you will also run with a few other hikers and visitors. Other Moun  Everest expeditions that link with the base camp are less well-known. It provides fresh, unadulterated sensations. However, these detours are perplexing. Because of the numerous interconnected lengthy and difficult pathways, you may become completely lost. However, the ultimate results are significantly more advantageous. 
This travel package includes a 14-day hiking path to Mt. Everest that is both safer and more challenging. 
You have the option of taking a group tour or a private journey. We enable both approaches to the Everest Base Camp. 

Important Notes

  1. Because of the quickly changing weather in the Himalayas, our CEO may have to modify the schedule. Travelers must be equipped to handle any weather.
    Although our treks are planned to allow for appropriate acclimatization, you may experience the consequences of altitude sickness and oxygen deprivation. Please be advised that at any point, your CEO may decide it is hazardous for you to continue hiking and may make arrangements for you to descend to a lower altitude.
    Flights to/from Lukla Airport may be canceled or delayed due to weather in the Himalayas. It could be required to do this flight in a specially hired helicopter to ensure that you complete your journey or return from it. In some weather conditions, helicopters can fly where airplanes cannot. If a helicopter is required, the cost will be borne by the travelers; Accessible Adventure will not pay for it. Amounts of $500 (one way) or more should be kept on hand in case this eventuality arises. In addition to the emergency fund indicated below, this amount is also suggested.
    Ideally, there won't be any weather delays, or if there are, they'll just last a short while. If the delays last for days and neither a helicopter nor flight is a possibility, the group will decide how to proceed as a whole. This is especially important if the delays happen before the journey because the original trek might not be possible anymore. Your CEO will be on hand to assist with this procedure.

-For further information on what to carry for the hike on this trip, please see the "Checklist" portion of the trip notes.
- To carry the items you'll need during the day, you'll need to bring a cozy, medium-sized day pack. This needs a waist belt or, even better, a waist strap. High-altitude weather is unpredictable, thus layering your clothing is advised all year round.

2. DRONES IN NEPAL 
Please be aware that drones and drone flying are illegal in Nepal. The police have the right to detain you if you break these rules.

 Meals

Traveling involves eating a lot. When you travel with Accessible Adventures, you get to sample the delicious food that is served all around the world. When there are several dining alternatives, meals are typically not included in the trip cost to offer you the most freedom in choosing where what, and with whom to dine. Despite the fact that food is typically inexpensive, it also allows you greater financial flexibility. For you to experience a wider range of foods and to enjoy one other's company, our groups usually dine together. However, there is no requirement to follow this. If breakfast is offered, it will often be prepared in an Asian style with noodles, congee (rice porridge), or toast and eggs. Vegetarians can choose from a variety of foods, albeit the selection may be limited in some places. 

Transport

Plane, bus, walking.

Local Flights

Unless otherwise stated, the price of your tour includes all local flights. In order to process these tickets, it's critical that we obtain your passport information at the time of booking. You will receive your local-issued internal flight tickets prior to the flight's departure.

Solo Travelers

We do not charge a single surcharge on our group tours since we don't think that single travelers should have to pay more to travel. For the length of the journey, single travelers who join group tours are placed in twin or multi-share accommodations with a person of the same sex. Single travelers on these itineraries must pay the single-trip rate since several of our Independent tours have unique designs.

 

Accommodation

Hotels/guesthouses (2 nights), teahouse lodges (11nights).

More about Everest Short Trek Accommodation. . . 

A tea house is a fusion of a restaurant, guest home, and social gathering place. Most tea houses offer private rooms, with the exception of those at high elevations where there will only be dormitories. The lodges are rather simple. With only twin beds and very few other furnishings, the rooms are bare. Usually, blankets are given. The majority of restrooms are communal, and toilets can be either western-style or squat-style. Running water is common in tea houses. The majority of tea houses only offer cold showers, while a handful can offer hot water for an extra fee. However, since the scarcity of firewood in Nepalese communities is a significant environmental problem, we discourage our groups from consuming water that has been heated by wood.
There is a sizable dining room/lounge that is heated by a Bukhara burner (an iron cylinder, fitted with a chimney duct, in which a log fire is lit). Except in cases when the hamlet has hydroelectric power, there is typically no electric illumination in the rooms. Solar lighting is generally present in the dining room. There may be a modest fee for using the energy available in certain tea shops to charge small electronics like cameras and cell phones.
You typically have breakfast and supper at the tea house while having lunch at one of the trailside eateries while on a tea house trek. The traditional Nepali dish Dal Bhat (rice and lentils) is available at every tea shop, along with a wide range of other dishes such as rice, veggies, noodles, potatoes, and soup. Some provide western foods including pizza, spaghetti, and french fries in Nepali adaptations. Most tea cafes and trailside eateries sell soft drinks, munchies, and beer. Additionally, Nepali milk tea is available everywhere.
Trekkers may find boiling water in any tea establishment. We advise against buying bottled water when hiking. The use of plastic bottles has led to environmental issues and is difficult to discard.

What to Bring

Since you will be moving around a lot throughout your vacation, try to pack as little as possible. Every two travelers will receive a porter, who will transport their hiking supplies in a waterproof duffel that we will give. The porters are only permitted to carry a total of 10 kg (22 lbs) per person. There is a strict weight restriction of 10 kg (22 lbs) for checked baggage and 5 kg (11 lbs) for hand luggage on flights from Kathmandu to Lukla. You can leave some of your stuff in Kathmandu (the hotel may charge a storage fee), but you must bring all of your hiking supplies with you.

Exhaustive Trip Notes

In Nepal, trekking is a popular activity that offers breathtaking vistas of the country's unspoiled scenery. Trekking can be challenging at times since there is a lot of hiking uphill and downhill, but it is doable for any healthy individual with a high degree of walking fitness. Often, obstinacy (tenacity) is beneficial. The most important factor in this situation is how you handle the altitude, not whether you are fit or not. Walk at your OWN speed; slow and steady is the way to go. AVOID RUSHING! The only benefits of wanting to be first are a splitting headache, nausea, and vomiting! Go slowly; go forward steadily, halt, and stand to rest; don't sit down too often because it will be more difficult to pick up your pace again.

Spending Money

Because each traveler is unique, their needs for spending money will change. While some travelers prefer to drink more than others, some want to buy more souvenirs than most. When deciding how much money to set aside for beverages, shopping, and tips, please take into account your personal spending patterns. Please keep in mind the following advice while making travel arrangements.

Money Exchange

We kindly request that you consult the following website for daily exchange rates because currency exchange rates in Asia fluctuate frequently. The currency rate for Nepal as of November 2022 was 1 USD = 131.00 NPR (Nepalese Rupees). ATMs that take both Visa and Mastercard are widely available, although only in Namche Bazaar and Kathmandu. Most stores accept major credit cards, however, there may be a 2-4% transaction fee.
