trip Overview

Hey, are you willing to do an adventurous Everest Base camp trek but unsure due to time constraints? We offer you a short yet perfect trek around the highest altitudes of the world, the Everest region. This trek, undoubtedly, is a perfect opportunity to have an up-close glimpse of the mighty Mt. Everest and the mountain ranges around Everest. Furthermore, it provides a chance to experience cultural, natural, and traditional facts of the Khumbu region by walking around Sagarmatha national park. This is a famous trekking destination as it takes us to Namche Bazaar, the mighty viewpoint of Kala Patthar, the backyard of Sherpa villages, large Buddhist monasteries, and Sherpa Museums.

Our trek to Everest starts with a short and scenic flight to the small town Lukla from the ancient city Kathmandu. From there, passing through beautiful forests, and terraces we will trek to the beautiful village of Phakding. Our next destination will be Namche Bazaar. Namche is the main trading center of the Khumbu region with few Nepalese officials, and banks with good facilities for food and accommodations. Furthermore, we will trek to the Tengboche monastery, the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. Our next destination is the beautiful Himalayan village of Dingboche, the last village on this trek. Finally, from Dingboche we will trek to your dream destination, Everest Base Camp passing through small teahouse stops like Lobuche and Gorakshep.

In addition, we can witness four (Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho-Oyu) of the top 6 highest mountains in the world. We will get to experience authentic Himalayan cuisines and lifestyles of Himalayan peoples too. Sagarmatha National Park is the home of many endangered animals like Red Panda, Musk Deer, Snow Leopards, Himalayan Tahr, etc.

This is a short trek yet gives you an experience of a lifetime. Also, you will get to stretch your personal endurance beyond your thought possible.
