Everest Short Trek 05 Days - Essential Information

Everest Short Trek Route

Your five (05) days Everest Short trek itinerary begins after you arrive in Kathmandu, the first-day early morning you will take the famous breathtaking 35 min flight to Lukla village also known as the ‘Gateway to Everest’.We will provide you with all the airport pick and drop to make your trek as smooth and comfortable as possible.

The same day after some lunch in Lukla you will start the trek downhill to Phakding. The first day of the trek will help you acclimatize to the high altitude in the Himalayas. You will come through river crossings with green line cones and other vegetation along with the chirping of birds and sounds of different animals. You will also get to see yaks carrying loads for the people, lodges, and hotels of that region.

On the second day of Everest Short Trek, we ascended to the Sherpa capital of the Everest region, Namche Bazaar. A cluster of hotels and houses on the sloppy hill provides a wonderful look to the village. On the way to Namche Bazaar, we will cross through the world-famous Hillary Bridge over the Dudhkoshi River. The second day is a bit longer taking 5-6 hrs as we have to go through ups and downs. We recommend slow but continuous walking rather than taking frequent breaks as it helps to acclimatize to the altitude faster. We spend the night in Namche Bazaar.

On the way to Everest base camp, you will also see mani stones, Buddhist flags, and small stoned structures, monasteries, suspension bridges which provide a peaceful aura during the trek. In addition, the best time/ season for Everest Base Camp Short Trek is from Mid Sep – to December or February – May.

On the third day, we start our trek to Syangboche from Namche Bazaar. We roam around Namche Bazaar for some time and start a short trek to Syangboche. Syangboche is a Buddhist village that provides a view of different mountains surrounding the Everest region. We stay at the Everest View Hotel(3,962m/13,000ft), the highest 04-star hotel in the world.

We charter a helicopter flight for the next day morning to Everest base camp and back to Lukla. On the fourth day, we will go on a helicopter ride to Everest base camp where the magical snow-capped scenarios are ready to surprise you. You will be surrounded by some of the tallest and most popular mountain peaks like Mt. Everest (8,848 m) along with Lhotse (8,516 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Tabuchi (6,542 m), Amadablam (6,812m), Thamserku (6,623 m) and many more.
