The Short Everest Base Camp Trek follows the same path as the Everest Base Camp Trek but takes less time to finish. Since most of the Short Everest Base Camp Treks pathways are located at altitudes greater than 3,000 meters, you must be physically fit and mentally prepared for this trekking. During a brief visit to Nepal, we at Nepal Mother House can quickly arrange access to the Mt. Everest Base Camp and the well-known vista Kalapathar. 

The Everest Base Camp Short Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Everest Base Camp  Short Trek was created especially for people looking for an exhilarating adventure in the  Himalayas. You have the chance to touch the base of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, during this expedition (8,848m). It is one of the most magnificent chances to go on a  Himalayan journey. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary were the first to ascend it in1953

The Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal gets off to a magnificent start. First, Trekkers will fly to  Lukla Airfield, which is regarded as the most extreme and well-known airport in the entire globe. Next, the excursion follows the Dudhkoshi River once the trekking crew members are introduced. Before reaching Namche Bazaar for the second stage of the journey, hikers must pass through  Phakding, Benkar, Manjo, and the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Gate. 

No words can adequately describe Sagarmatha National Park, which is listed as a World Heritage  Site. Incredible panoramic views of Mount Ama Dablam, Kangtekga, Pek 38/ Shar Tse, Lhotse  Shar, Lhotse, Lhotse Col, South Col, Mount Everest, Nuptse, Tabuche Peak, and Khumbu. The trail gently ascends through the Tenzing Norgay Memorial Stupa before passing Kenjoma,  descends through a pine forest to the Dhudha Kishi Bridge at Phunke Tenga, and then rises to the  Tyangbuche Monastery with a stunning mountain view.

As an alternative to Tynagbuche, there is Dingboche. Before Pangbuche Village, you will cross the Imja Khola Bridge again. From there, you will head to Somare, Orsho Teahouse,  Dingboche (the highest farmland in the world), Dughla/Thukla, Thukla Pass, Lobuche, Lobuche  Pass, and Gorekshep (the final teahouse for the short trek to Everest Base Camp). 

Near Thukla Pass, where the Khumbu Glacier starts, there are numerous memorials to the expedition's dead. You can travel from Lobuche to Gorekshep and visit the Italian Research Center  (Pyramid). Mount Everest Base Camp, located at an elevation of 5,360 meters and offers breathtaking views of the Khumbu Icefall, Khumbu Glacier, and high Himalayan scenery, is the main draw of the 10-day Everest Base Camp Trek. In the spring, you can witness a lot of expedition groups. In the spring, EBC resembles a smaller version of Thamel. At the height of 5,643 meters above sea level, Kala Pathar, also known as Kalapattar (Black Rock in Nepali), is the most well-liked vantage point for the closest view of Mount Everest without the need for considerable mountaineering expertise. 

Another milestone for the Short EBC Trek is this one. For the most beautiful mountain vistas, go when the sun is setting. But if you plan to stroll till twilight after sunset, you'll need to be fully equipped to prevent yourself from freezing. The view is magnificent from the top of Kalapattar. You can see Mt. Tabuche Peak, Cholatse, Lobuche East, Lobuche West, Chhumbu, Changri, Chumbu, Pumori, Lingtren , and Khumbutse . 

The quickest Everest Base Camp Trek has ended at Lukla after gaining a wealth of once-in-a-lifetime experiences to return to the Sherpa Villages. Experienced local Sherpa guides and porters lead our Everest Base Camp Short Treks throughout the year. However,  the optimum times to hike to Everest Base Camp in the fall and spring are from mid-September to mid-November and from mid-March to mid-May.

Essential Info

Quickest Everest Base Camp Difficulties

Short Everest base camp trek is categorized as moderate to challenging. The Everest Base Camp journey's difficulty level is influenced by several variables, including your degree of physical fitness, the number of days you spend trekking, your route, and the time of year you travel. 

From Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back, the trek route is 120 kilometers long. In essence,  throughout nine days, you will have to walk for an average of 4 to 7 hours. Throughout the journey, you will encounter both mountainous and flat terrain. The highest elevation of the Everest Base Camp route is at Kala Patthar, which is 5644m/18,519ft. When the body cannot adapt to the change in air pressure, altitude sickness is possibly over  3000m/9,842ft because of the steady decline in oxygen levels. There are signs such as nausea,  vomiting, and headaches. This short route doesn't include any rest or acclimatization days. Therefore hikers with previous trekking experience may usually complete it. 

Therefore, keeping up your physical fitness, exercising, and carefully following the route and guide can help you avoid any problems that may arise while on the hike. 

Short Everest Base Camp Trek Trip, Fitness Level, and  Health Recommendations 

The trek brings you to the Everest Base Camp, but there are no scheduled acclimatization days. We will stay three nights above 4,000m and walk to a height of 5,555m at Kala Patthar. We advise individuals who have previous high-altitude trekking experience, are in good health, have an average physical condition, have a positive mindset, have lots of self-confidence, and have a solid resolve to go on this journey. You must be capable of walking for five to seven hours every day for ten days. 

High-altitude trekking is physically taxing. Along with taking you to a high altitude, this journey is difficult due to the rocky mountains, sharp ascents, and descents. However, technical knowledge and abilities are not required. Your stamina will be improved, and you'll be able to fully enjoy the trek if you exercise and frequently jog for a few weeks before the trip. Before making a  reservation, trekkers with pre-existing medical illnesses, including heart, lung, or blood disease, should let us know about their situation or see a doctor. 

You don't need to worry about your safety, though, as we offer knowledgeable guides who have received comprehensive first aid training. Your oxygen level will be continuously checked to identify altitude sickness exceptionally early. Additionally, we avoided altitude sickness when designing the itinerary. The only way to recover from severe altitude sickness is to descend immediately. Your trek leader has the final say in whether or not a member of your group exhibits symptoms of altitude sickness. 

Short Everest Base Camp Cost 

The price of the program includes a guide, porter service, permits, breakfast, lunch, dinner, decent teahouse lodging throughout the walk, and hotel lodging on a Trek. However, the cost of the short  Everest Base Camp journey is influenced by several factors. First, it depends on the travel Company you pick because the international Company costs more than a local Nepali Company. 

Additionally, you can choose between a basic and a luxurious standard for your excursion if to stay in a fancy hotel and use other amenities while on the hike, the cost would be much more. 

Short Everest Base Camp Trek Accommodation and Food 

The 10-day Short Everest Base Camp Trek includes 9 nights of lodging in the mountain with the nicest in the area. Since this is the world's most popular trekking route, lodging and tea house amenities are available throughout the entire trek. Each tea house will give guests a  comfortable bed, a pillow with a net, a fresh bed sheet, and a blanket. Two people must typically share a twin or double bed, and you must use the shared bathroom to take a cold shower (hot showers are only accessible with NPR).  

Some locations, including Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, and Lobuche, have accommodations of various categories available. If you'd like to spend a few nights in a better hotel in the heart of the Himalayas, we'd be happy to arrange it for you at an additional cost, like Everest base camp Luxury Lodge Trek. For the smaller group of two to three persons, we will make bookings for lodging immediately or a  few days in advance via phone call or letter, but for the larger group, we must do so several months in advance. In any case, we at Nepal Mother House are dedicated to providing you with the best lodging for each day of your journey. 

You can choose from various culinary options while on the EBC Trek. The trail is one of the  Himalayas' best-maintained ones. So, you can anticipate receiving a place on the trip and the necessary upscale food. There are many different cafes, teahouses, and restaurants where you can get food. Popular cuisines, including Chinese and continental, are available there. While on the trek, you must try the native dish, Dal Bhat. Pizza, pasta, noodles, spaghetti, dumplings, soup, eggs, etc., are options. In addition, you will consume delectable dishes prepared by natives over a fire. 

Best Season For Short Everest Base Camp Trek 

In Nepal, the optimum times to complete the quick Everest Base Camp trip are considered to be autumn and spring. This is because autumn has a bright sky without haze or clouds in September, October, and  November, making it perfect for breathtaking mountain views. In addition, rhododendrons in bloom throughout the dry spring months of March, April, and May add to the ambiance in the Khumbu region. 

Trekking is possible in December, January, and February, although the weather is extremely chilly, with nighttime lows of -30 degrees Celsius. Additionally, snowfalls that make the trail slick are possible. The most unfavorable trekking season on Everest is during the monsoon season in June, July, and August because of the extreme weather changes on the mountain. High probabilities of precipitation and snow make trekking challenging and could cause flight cancellations from and to Lukla.

Therefore, Autumn and Spring are the finest seasons for a quick Everest Base Camp Climb when considering the weather, temperature, scenery, and simplicity of the trek. 

Wifi, Electricity, Communication Services in Short Everest  Base Camp Trek 

In terms of communication, Nepal is rapidly connected like the rest of the world, yet,  accessibility is more excellent in urban and suburban areas than in rural ones. Throughout the entire Short  EBC Trek, phone and cell services are accessible. If you want to contact your family and friends from the vast world, every tea establishment has phone and internet facilities. Nepal's two most well-known telecommunications providers offer mobile coverage during the entire trek. Therefore, if you purchase a Nepalese SIM card, go through NCELL rather than NTC  in the Khumbu region. You can access the internet using 4 G services on your mobile device or  Everest Link's wifi in the tea house. 

Discuss the wifi services with your guide or the hotel owner; the data is only applicable during specific times and locations. Please don't purchase a lot of data for one day; it won't work elsewhere. Most places in the Everest region use hydropower to produce electricity; those who do not have access to it have a modest solar panel installed for a nightlight. You can use  NPR 100 to 300 per hour/item to charge your camera and other electronic device batteries in the guest's home. Including extra batteries and a power source for charging in emergencies would be preferable. While visiting Nepal, you should have a universal adaptor because some tea houses lack sufficient electrical outlets. 

Travel Insurance For Short Everest Base Camp Trek 

When going for a trek to the Everest region, you must take all types of insurance. It would help if you took all the insurance for your safety. It includes medical insurance and accidental insurance

For the safety of our guests considering the Short Everest Base Camp Trek, we strongly advise them to get travel insurance. During Everest Base Camp Trekking, you will be experiencing a remote location. Therefore, we will be forced to deploy an airlift to provide you with immediate medical care in an accident or any unforeseen medical emergency (which seldom occurs). 

Until travel insurance or the Passenger commits to pay the fee to pay the costs, rescue providers,  particularly emergency evacuation service providers, do not get ready. As a result, travel insurance is essential when walking to Everest's base camp.

Packing List for Everest Base Camp Trek 

The following is the list of the things and equipment we will need to carry with us when you are heading on the journey. 

  • For the upper part of the body 

  1. Hat: You'll need a nice, wide-brimmed trekking hat to keep the sun off your face. Lightweight,  simple to carry, and neck-covering styles are the best. The primary reason for wearing a hat while trekking is to protect yourself from the sun while on the trail.
  2. Headlamp: Along with the hat, carrying a headlamp with you during the trek is better. Headlamps are lights that are worn on a person's head. Due to their hands-free operation, these gadgets are great for trekking and hiking. Having your hands free when hiking is ideal for dealing with anything Mother Nature throws at you or pulling your stuff. For example, at night, trails can be hard to navigate. These footprints generally incorporate pebbles, tree roots, twigs, and even animals and resemble an uncharted maze. These hazards can be dangerous, and having your hands free allows you to catch yourself, move obstacles, sprint, or fend off an enraged rabbit on the track. 
  3. Woolen Hat: When you move to higher elevations, you get a high chance of being caught by cold. So, carrying a woolen hat with you is suggested for your protection. However, not every hat is equally suitable for trekking, so it is safer to take a woolen hat; it will be available if you need it. 
  4. Sun Protecting Hat: Day during your trial can be sunny, and the rays directly showered upon you. It will protect UV rays from entering your skin. We must be more careful regarding our heads and protect the scalp from sunburn and skin cancer. 
  5. Sunglasses: As we move towards high altitude, the atmospheric layer becomes thinner, which increases exposure to harmful rays because the capacity to filter these rays becomes less. Therefore, we must carry sunglasses to protect our eyes from harmful rays. 
  • Body Part 

  1. Waterproof jackets and trousers: Rain on the path is always possible, especially if you intend to hike between June and September (we strongly advise against walking in the region). We recommend bringing rain gear with you as a precaution, preferably a gore-tex membrane hardshell jacket. An inexpensive pair of waterproof pullovers will typically be enough for pants. 
  2. ∙ T-shirt: It is suggested to wear light clothes during trekking to avoid extreme sweating and discomfort. A t-shirt is best to wear during such trips. 
  3. Clothing: Layering is a significant walk component due to the considerable fluctuation in altitude and temperature. You'll be able to quickly adapt to the climate and be comfortable and safe if you can add and remove layers of clothes while trekking. If you intend on hiking during the cooler winter months of December through February, you'll want to bring some extra layers. 
  4. Gloves: You will need to carry your gloves with you because gloves will help protect your hands from sweat, extreme weather conditions, and other inconvenient situations that may cause discomfort and injury. 
  • Lower Body Clothing 

  1. Thermal Inners: Thermal inners are insulators between your body and the surrounding cold air. They trap body heat and prevent heat loss. Use the ones generally made with polyester or give extra comfort and flexibility. 
  2. Trousers: A full-length pair of trekking trousers provides solid path protection, preventing cuts and scratches from prickly plants, twigs, rocks, and other hazards. This allows you to travel calmly while trekking without the sound of rustling plants and enables you to get near to animals without making a nuisance. 
  3. Down Jacket: A down jacket is one of your most significant purchases. On a hiking or climbing journey throughout the journey, having the correct warm, insulating layer may make or break your pleasure level. When heading for a trek in the Everest region, You must include a down jacket in your packing list. 
  • Footwears 

  1. Trekking Boots: Trekking boots are necessary as they are specifically designed to protect the foot and ankles during long-distance trekking. They are one of the essential items of trekking as they can determine a trekker's ability to walk long distances without injury. 
  2. Socks: A trekking sock is essential for avoiding blisters. Unlike a weak, stinking cotton sock, a hiking hose will not continually brush against the back of your foot and will give substantial protection from friction caused by your shoe. The socks maintain a constant temperature for the feet. Socks are incredibly soft and comfortable on foot. 
  • Other Types of Equipment for Trekking 
  1. Trekking Poles: Trekking poles intersperse your arms and shoulders into the trekking movement, allowing you to use better muscles to force yourself uphill and control your downhill. The result is an expansion in rate without an accumulation in leg soreness. 
  2. First Aid Kids: First aid kits are a must-have for every trekker. They help you with necessary treatment during the trial. Thus to minimize the risk of infection or injury severity, we must take it with ourselves. A well-stocked kit contains items that treat burns,  injuries, scrapes, and cuts. 
  3. Sleeping Bags: Though we will be staying in hotels and there will be services, still take no risk and carry a sleeping bag with you. If you want the best night's sleep on the trail, it is recommended to take your sleeping bags with you.
  4. Personal Bags: When going on an outdoor trek, you want to ensure you'll be comfortable the entire time. A bag is fundamental if you're hiking a long and challenging walk. The type of trekking backpack you use will significantly impact how pleasant your adventure will be. If you're carrying many goods, you'll need a bag that distributes the weight properly, so you don't get tired soon.

FAQs

  • Q1. Do we miss any noteworthy locations on this trek as it has a short itinerary?

The routes range in altitude from low (2,860m) to quite high (5,555m), making it tough for beginners. This causes altitude sickness, thus basic physical and mental preparation is advised before embarking on the Short Everest Trek.  Walking, jogging, hiking, meditation, and other activities are beneficial for the Mount  Everest Base Camp Short Trek.

  • There is nothing you can do to get your body ready for altitude sickness. However, you can avoid it by taking a few precautions. They are as follows: 

    • Gain height gradually and gradually. 
    • Reduce the number of walking hours and walk slowly as you approach 2000 meters. ∙ Consume plenty of water. 
    • Get plenty of rest. Rest more if your body seems to be requesting it. 
    • Consume high-calorie foods. 
    • Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption. 
  • Anyone may complete the short Everest Base Camp Trek. Having said that, it's preferable if you've done high-altitude trekking before. Alternatively, you could improve your fitness and stamina before embarking on the Short Everest Base Camp Trek if the mountains are close.  We will assist you in completing this walk successfully if you have the necessary inner resolve and some prior hiking experience. You need both inner strength and dependable stamina for a successful trek. This trek is impossible to complete with just stamina. Everest  Base Camp is readily reached by people who are physically and mentally fit, who love the mountain, and who will appreciate every moment in the Himalayas. 

     

  • No places will be missed on the Short Everest Base Camp Trek. The route is identical to the traditional Everest Base Camp Trek. The only difference is that this schedule does not include any acclimatization days. This hike also includes the ascent to the Kalapatthar viewpoint. This journey includes the most popular destinations, including Namche Bazaar,  Tengboche Monastery, Dingboche hamlet, Lobuche, and, of course, Everest Base Camp. 

  • Due to its high altitude (5000+ meters at some spots), the Short Everest Base Camp Trek is considered to be a moderately difficult trek. However, the risk is reduced by our carefully planned schedule and our knowledgeable local advisors. Always be on the safe side, please.  Although our crew takes every attempt to reduce any hazards throughout your walk, some circumstances are out of our control. We will be with you as a whole team, and we always work to reduce issues. If you run into any difficulties on the trail, please let us know. The rest is up to you, simply enjoy the journey and the breathtaking Himalayas. 

  • We always put safety first on all of our excursions, so if you need to, we advise adding an extra day to your walk. You can use that extra day without worrying about missing your international flight if the weather in Lukla becomes bad, if you need an extra day to rest,  or if you want to stay in one hamlet and explore. 

  • Yes, but not in all local communities or villages. In addition to Dingboche and Lobuche, large hotels with lodge-like settings can be found in Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche  Bazaar, and Tengboche. Due to weather conditions and locations in deep valleys and gorges, the network might occasionally be slow and troublesome in some areas.

  • Usually, the trip from Kathmandu to Lukla is filled with incredible adventures. There are numerous flights made each day. Regular flights occasionally cannot take off or land in  Lukla due to weather. In this situation, a helicopter could be used. We will be happy to set up your helicopter transportation from Kathmandu to Lukla and back. Unquestionably, a helicopter is preferable to an airplane. 

     

  • Altitude can cause many trekkers to experience a slight headache, depending on each person and how physically fit and strong they are. One can acclimate by moving slowly,  getting plenty of sleep, and eating. Ibuprofen, a painkiller, can be taken on the recommendation of your doctor or group leader. However, all vital medicines,  including sleeping pills, should be avoided at high elevations since they might have serious side effects and cause your body to become disordered.

  •  It was an exciting and amazing journey to Everest Base Camp

    Even though the trip only lasted 10 days, it was an incredible experience. This 10-day journey to Everest base camp allowed us to fulfill our dreams. We had a brief opportunity to witness the most beautiful Mountain View and Himalayan landscapes, which included tall hills, verdant woods, and typical flora and animals. Other fantastic experiences were visiting the nearby settlement, tea rooms, restaurants, and mountain people's cultures. We appreciate  Mountain Rock Treks for organizing such a lovely trip.

  • Who knew I could climb to the top of the globe as quickly as I did with the 10-day trip to Everest Base Camp?

    Hiking the short Everest Route, the most well-known trek route in the world, was an unplanned journey and adventure. I'll never forget the encounter with the local culture or the adjacent Mountain View. I thoroughly enjoyed my chopper flight and would probably do it again if I had the opportunity. Thanks to Mountain Rock trek for organizing this short itinerary. It was one of the best memory for me.
