Trip Information

The Everest Base Camp trek takes plenty of days to ascend. Minimizing the time, we have brought Short Everest Base Camp Trek for you. This Short Base Camp trek takes you to the base of Everest in a really short time than the standard time.  However, conquering the base camp in a short time is not very easy.  The diamond-like determination, unpenetrable willingness, and a healthy body are needed to go to the base of Everest in a short period of time through the trek.

Your  Everest Base Camp Short Trek will start from the scenic flight that you do from Kathmandu to Lukla.  And, what’s funny is, the flight is also short as well.  As we will ascend further through the trek, our encounter with the mountains will be often.  It excites as we see a glimpse of mountains far from Lukla. 

The Short Everest Base Camp Trek delivers you the most exciting views of mountains.  It’s absolutely the best you can have in a short trek.  Despite the flawless views, the journey rewards.  The Short Everest  Base Camp Trek deducts all the acclimatization days that you used to have in the normal Everest Base Camp Trek. That makes trekking to the upper region difficult. In simpler terms, you have to continue your trek without taking a break. Yes, you heard it right. , without a break day.  So, it’s better if you have prior experience high altitude trekking. You can also check the Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek package for extra ways to reach out to the basecamp. More importantly, if you just have a day or two free and you wish to step into the Everest Base Camp, we suggest you do the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. That is a popular tour among the voyages these days.
