Overview

Everest Base Camp Short Trek offers you with the wilderness that you are seeking. The most thrilling and adventurous trial run to explore the heaven touching apex of the highest mountain in the world. The mind blowing experience of viewing the tips of the mountain range stuck up like a row of thorns. And, swaddled around them are the necklaces of powdery snow.  This adventurous journey takes you to the base of the classic south face of Mt Everest in Nepal. You will be blessed with an opportunity of exploring highlands of Nepal, the most stupendous and scenic beauty of the world that you have ever encountered before. The hostile behavior of the Sherpa’s, their culture, life style and friendly behavior will leave you in wonder.
 
Coniferous and subtropical forests, wetlands, and montane grasslands are a refreshing part of this trek as the inhospitable, frozen mountain tops that tower above. Hiking through the Everest Base Camp Short Trek trial, you will stop on a famous village Namche Bazaar. It is a village surrounded by frosty pinnacles of the mountains and is also known as the “Gateway to Everest”. Another famous stop on the trial is Tengboche Monastery, a spiritual center of the Khumbu with plenty of convoluted artwork and holy writings. In this way, ascending through the steep highlands, walking through the montane grasslands and passing through the beautiful rhododendron forest, we embark our adventurous journey to the top of the world i.e. Everest.
