The Everest Base Camp Short Trek is a journey that harmoniously incorporates all of the best features and attributes of the Everest region to present you a short trekking experience perfect for travelers who are less on time. The jovial trekking trail passing through the ethnic villages of the region, and coruscating around landscapes that are extremely beautiful and refreshing, offer a trekking journey that truly captures the essence of the Nepalese mountain life. The Khumbu earns its well-deserved fame as one of the most amazing trekking destinations in the entire world because of the region’s many appeals pertaining to both its cultural aspect and natural setting.
The mountain views are seen along the way, the rich natural terrain and its prospect of Sherpa tradition are what makes the Everest Base Camp Short Trek journey a daring feat of adventures in the alpine acreages of Khumbu. The many dispositions of the region play out a harmonious tune to present trekkers from all over the world an experience unlike anything else. Start off the trek from Kathmandu with a scenic flight to Lukla as you hold on to your seats while the plane flies around rolling green hills and mountains to land on one of the most dramatic airstrips on the planet. Trek on beautiful paths to villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche and Dingboche as you make your way to the Everest Base Camp. Hike to the famous vantage point of Kalapatthar and revel in the panoramic sight of the entire Mount Everest massif. Enjoy a jovial trekking journey that completely captures the Everest region’s mountainous diversity.
As the paths wind about many hills and valleys, you would be crossing rickety wooden and suspension bridges and crossing Imja Khola and the Dudh Koshi Rivers to come across wide open expanses of boulder-dotted pastures and river basins. Herds of yaks, sheep and mountain goats carry along their trudging from one location to the next and the Sherpa people carry out their day-to-day life in the mountains, which are both very humbling to observe. Pass by many chortens and Gompas along the way and reach the famous Tengboche Monastery for blessings from the monks. Catch glimpses of animals and birds in the woodlands and rejoice in both open panoramic views and small peeks of mountains like Everest, Thamserku, the Kongdi RI, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Nuptse, the Kusum Kangraru, the Pumori and Makalu among many others. Spend time at Namche exploring the mountain town and visit the Everest View Hotel, the highest located hotel in the world. Namche is known as the “gateway to Everest” and its location on the side of the mountain face presents a terrace-like terrain filled with colorful houses and mountains in the distance like tapestries.
Standing at the lower terraces of Namche and looking upwards at the rest of the village is like standing at the center of an amphitheater show and looking around the arena with houses and people scattered about. Hike to the summer valley of Dingboche and follow its mile-long stone wall to reach the Himalayas. Look at many Mani-stone wall carvings and colorful prayer flags that decorate the region at regular intervals. The Everest Base Camp Short Trek is an amazing combination of Khumbu’s many naturals beguiles and its people’s traditional way of living. Immerse yourself in the region’s mountain sights and trek up hills brimming with rhododendrons and azaleas. It is a trek of a lifetime!
