Everest Base Camp Short Trek takes you across many beautiful hills and Valleys. You will be crossing many wooden and suspension bridges over Imja Khola and Dudh Koshi River. Similarly, you will have an alluring scene of herds of yaks and sheep across the alpine pasture in the Himalayas. The traditional villages, chortens and gompas will add the spiritual taste in your trip. Standing at the middle of Namche Bazzar, you can see the whole villages upwards which offer you the scene incomparable to anything else. The wonderful mountain view of Mount Everest, Thamserku, Kongdi Ri, Ama Dablam, Twache, Nuptse, Pumori, Makalu and many others will definitely make this trip distinctly popular.

The Everest Base Camp Short Trek with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts off from Kathmandu with a scenic drive to Manthali, a beautiful town in Ramechhap district. Then we will have a short scenic flight to Lukla. After landing at the most beautiful airstrip in the globe, we will begin our trek on beautiful paths to the villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche and Dingboche as we approach the Everest Base Camp. We will also hike to the famous viewpoint of the region: Kalapatthar and experience the panoramic sight of the entire Mount Everest massif. Thus, this trekking is also the same as the standard EBC trekking. However, it is short in length.

  • Day 1: Drive from Kathmandu to Manthali at Ramechhap, Flight to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

    A journey by bus or air is always a source of superb pleasure and knowledge. It broadens our vision and deepens our knowledge.

Manthali is a beautiful hill town in Ramechhap district. Then we will fly towards Lukla from Manthali. Our itinerary doesn’t have a direct Kathmandu –Lukla Flight. We consider domestic air traffic and choose this as an option. After landing at Lukla and having some lunch, we will start our trek towards Phakding. We will gradually ascend upwards along the Bank of Dudh Koshi River until we reach Ghat. Then, we will have both uphill and downhill trek towards Phakding. Today, we will have a scenic drive for about four hours, flight for about half an hour and trek for about four hours.

Best Time for Everest Base camp Short Trek

The Everest Base Camp Short Trek is possible throughout the year. However, you will have different travel experiences at different times. Travelling at the right season/ time will make your trek more comfortable and rewards you with the most scenic vistas of the great Himalayas.

Autumn (September to November) and Spring (March to May) are the best times for the Everest Base Camp Short Trek. During these times of the year, the weather remains ideal. During Autumn and Winter, the sky is clearer with plenty of sunshine which offers unobstructed views. Moreover, autumn is the best time in Nepal to observe two of the most significant festivals of Nepal: Dashain and Tihar.

The weather during Summer and Winter may add some hurdles to the trek. During summer, there will be rainfall in Nepal and the trails will be muddy and slippery. Similarly, during winter, precipitation takes place in the form of snow at the mountains and the severe cold weather may displease anyone. However, the trek is not impossible these days. 

Everest Base Camp Short Trek Difficulties

Everest Base Camp Short Trek offers a moderate trekking experience. However, it has some potential level of difficulties. First of all, this itinerary completes within relatively less number of days that means you will gain a sharp altitude every day. Gaining altitude without proper acclimatization or climbing hastily may put you in the risk of Altitude Sickness which is the most common difficulty faced by many trekkers during the Everest Base Camp Short trek.

Another notable difficulty is the weather. The weather can change any time in the mountain. During the trek, unplanned troubles might join any time. During monsoon, the trekking trails are wet and slippery due to frequent rainfall. There can be landslides and avalanches in many places which may hurdle your trip. Similarly, different types of insects such as leeches and bugs may distract you. It is not that much easy trek. It becomes more difficult during off-seasons. 

The trail passes through steep, rocky land which is filled with snow and wilderness. You have to spend 6 to 7 hours uphill walk to complete the journey within limited days. It is rather difficult to cope with the steep and narrow trails.

Everest Base Camp Short Trek becomes difficult unless you consider a variety of factors that make your trek difficult. If you consider sufficient training and check the climbing background, you must be able to trek to Everest Base Camp despite the scary stories out there.
