Rapid/Shortest Everest Base Camp Trek
Regularly perceived as Short EBC trek, the Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to the base of Mt. Everest in a shorter period. We esteem your limited vacation time, so we expelled all the extra days from the ideal 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek and concocted this insane Rapid EBC trek. By its name, the Rapid EBC trek is just a shorter version of Everest Base Camp Trek. The acclimatization days are cut off and we go straight towards the base camp without daybreak. The journey starts from a scenic flight to Lukla and trekking onward to Base Camp. Having no additional days for acclimatization, one might feel quite difficult to adopt the high altitude.
A lifetime experience for people who have stepped this amazing trail. And a dream destination to most of the people. Everest Base Camp attracts everyone’s heart. This rapid Everest Base Camp is a journey with total excitement and fun. Surprises wait for you as you pass by every turning. The alluring views of mountains from trekking trails are indescribable. The off beaten trekking trails and panoramic views of mountains only haven’t lured the adventure lovers to the base camp. The great hospitality of Sherpa people and their way of culture is enduring voyagers.
There are also other packages that are designed for you. In case of an emergency or a very short period of time. We offer the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour which takes just a day to reach a base of Everest and return. On the off chance, if you want to experience both the ground and aerial beauty of the Himalaya range you can choose Everest Base Camp return by Helicopter. The trek was specially designed to go the Everest Base Camp by Trekking and returning by Helicopter. This is a very popular trek among travelers trekking to Everest Base Camp, as most of them don’t want to trek back.

Difficulty in Rapid Trek to Everest
Altitude Sickness, Accommodation, Food, and Weather are some key factors affecting the Rapid Everest Base Camp trek. These are a brief idea of how they may affect you and how we have arranged to minimize these difficulties.
Altitude Sickness: Most trekking routes in Nepal are at high altitudes above 3500 meters which are part of the high altitude. Since it is Everest, we will be above 5000m in Rapid Everest Base Camp Trekking. Trekking is high altitude is a serious activity especially for those without having previous high altitude experiences. Drinking lots of water and ascending slowing by catching your breath regularly helps a lot to fight with altitude sickness, however, there is no bulletproof plan to prevent the altitude sickness at all.
- Accommodation on the Trek: You will be staying at 3-star category hotels in Kathmandu and teahouses during the Rapid Everest Base Camp Trekking period. All accommodations are a twin sharing basis. However, the single supplement will be provided on your request and will be an additional cost. But the trekking period the single supplement will be given if there and availability in the lodges. Some lower elevation can be fine but the upper elevation might be difficult to give a single room. The accommodation in the city might be two single beds or 1 king size big bed. If the guest has a special performance for the room selection please feel free to inform us. We will try to provide you with a special appropriate room during your stay in Nepal. Numerous lodges provided blankets in the rooms but we suggest you bring your own sleeping bag. In the whole trekking, you will be accommodating in lodges no need camping and tent. Please do not expect high standard rooms during your trekking period. If you are a single traveler in the higher elevation you need to share the room with other single trekkers like you (same sex). In case we are not able to provide you single supplement we will refund your single supplement charge. We hope you understand the situation of trekking places. Please do not expect high standard luxury lodges, you are in a remote place. They offer basic rooms for accommodation.
- Meals on the Trek:?During your Rapid EBC trekking period, we will provide all the meals but only breakfast will be given in Kathmandu. Depends your international flight time we will provide you with a farewell or welcome dinner in a typical Nepali local restaurant with the cultural dance show. During your trek breakfast and dinner will be taken in the lodges where you sleep overnight but lunch takes in the middle of the trekking period. Indian, Italian, Nepalese and continental food is the choices in the trekking from the menu provided by the tea houses. Like noodles, soups, handmade bread, rice items, curries, spaghetti, pizza, egg items, potatoes are available in the mountains. These meals are prepared after your order. Most of the places meats also available but we recommend you not to take as they are not fresh. Sometimes unhealthy food affects your body and trekking. Do not expect western meals as you take in the city and in your home. Mission Himalaya Treks And Expeditions PVT LTD gives you full freedom to select your preferred meals from the menu provided by the lodges. The food and raw materials are locally prepared and taste different than the city.

frank | Norway.
Birendra took care of us up the mountain to Everest Base Camp and he was a wonderful guide. He was always very considerate in taking us to our accommodations and getting us food and tea time drinks when needed. He also shared good stories and facts about the regions we traveled through and the mountains we saw like Thamserku, Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Pumori. The important thing he was considerate about our health and safety throughout the trek. I would definitely Recommend Birendra for future trek and tour in Nepal.
Climb to Kalapatthar early morning 3 am.
Ellen White | Chicago, America
Great Trekking Agency and planning for our trekking. The itinerary was really suitable for us because we have no chance of acclimatization and summit successfully. Our guide Suman Dhakal still was amazing and supported us a lot on the trail. We went in very early in the morning for Kalapatthar for climbing so the weather was not pretty good. But we made it very well. Finally, when we reach Kalapatthar we saw all the mountains for some minutes.

Comfortable rapid Everest base camp trek.
Eleanor Coward | United Kingdom
We highly recommended Mission Himalaya Treks and Expeditions for trekking in Nepal. Our guide Chandra and Raju did safety and comfortable guiding us in rapid Everest base camp trek. Even we choose the monsoon season we are lucky to fly in a single day to Lukla. After back from Trek we use a helicopter because of Lukla weather. The price was reasonable only usd 500 per person for Lukla to Kathmandu helicopter flight cost. During the evening we had fun to play the cards with a guide. We are taking so relax and talked to the guests around the world. we will come back soon for the difficult Dhaulagiri trek or a 6000m peak climbing.
