About Trip

The Short Everest Base Camp Trek, located in eastern Nepal, is one of the most spectacular treks to the world's highest mountain, which stands at 8848 meters. Trekkers from all over the world come to see this breathtaking natural wonder. Trekking to Everest Base Camp allows you to experience authentic Tibetan communities, culture, and religious dialects, pristine flora and fauna, abundant waterfalls, and truly memorable landscapes.

The Sagarmatha National Park is a beautiful and memorable place of trees and waterways in the area. The trek usually begins in Lukla for those who fly in, or in Jiri or Salleri if you arrive by road. The region is dominated by Sherpas, who are well-known mountaineers. The majority of the communities are Buddhists who enjoy spiritual peace. The Everest Base Camp Short Trek provides 360-degree views of majestic snow-capped mountains rising more than 6000 meters above sea level. Some of these peaks are well-known for climbing, including Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Lobuche East, and Lobuche West, to name a few. While trekking through these incredible regions, you are deeply impressed by deep Buddhism, its communities, monasteries, and, of course, the people who entice you with their kindness and warmth of hospitality.

The Short Everest Base Camp Trek is ideal for those looking for an adventure that includes reaching the top of the world with unforgettable views of the massive Himalaya range, stunning flora and fauna, and communities with a rich culture. Similarly, the 10-day Everest Base Camp Short Trek is the best way to avoid the same trail returns and discover the close-up scenic view of the Khumbu Himalaya by helicopter.

Brilliant Trekking Agency

Rating:  

In October 2021, I & my wife did the Short Everest base camp trek with Nepal Trekking Experts. We reached out to the company and from the moment of the first enquiry to leaving the country we were fully satisfied with our experience. All correspondence was completely professional and we always felt like we were in safe hands.

Our guide was Binod, and he was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful to us in all manners, whether encouraging us in difficult parts of the trek or helping to order meals. When we started to suffer from altitude sickness, he did a great job and educated decisions to help combat the effects and make it to the base camp.

Since we had a short holiday and high preference of exploring Everest Base Camp, short Everest Base camp trek with Nepal trekking Experts was the best fit for us. Likewise, chopper ride from Gorakshep to Lukla was an incredible experience ever.

Overall, I can't recommend this trekking company enough.
