10 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Overview

Trek Grade: Moderate (Depend on your level of fitness)

One of the most popular trek in the world, Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is definitely the experience of a lifetime.

If you don't have time for classic Everest Base Camp trek or simply don't want to spend 15 days on the trail, then this trek is for you !!!!

This trek is a short version of the trail which can be done in 10 days.

10 days Everest Base Camp trek is an excellent alternative to the full Everest Base Camp trek. I recommend this route for those who lack the time to complete the longer trek or who prefer not to camp.

With a beautiful scenery, wide variety of flora and fauna on display and visit to the base camp of world’s highest peak Mt. Everest, you'll get to enjoy all the best bits of the Everest Base Camp trial within 10 days.

This trek itinerary allows you to see most of the same things that you can see on a regular EBC trek but in just 10 days.0

On the trail, each day after a few hour steep walk upwards and downwards you'll get the wonderful moments.

But keep in mind that, this short 10 days itinerary doesn't include Kathmandu arrival, departure, and acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. So if you're physically fit it might be no problem to do this trek rapidly.0

But if you prefer to do with one extra day acclimatization en trek route and one free day in Kathmandu after or before the trek, then you can also choose 10 days Everest Base Camp Trekking
Enjoy the natural beauties and the scenic views of this easy and fast trek !!

You'll start and end your trekking journey from Lukla on the way exploring different landscapes and enjoying the stunning picture of Everest Base Camp to Kala Patthar from where you'll get the best view of Mt. Everest!

More Info

Note:

All trekking hours mentioned above are approximate and you can use it as a rough guide.

Please note the weather of the Himalayan region is unpredictable. Thus, it is possible that the domestic flights from Kathmandu to Lukla might get a delay or even cancel for a day or more. So, it's better to add a couple of extra days before and after your trek.

Although this doesn't happen during the peak trekking seasons, you need to plan accordingly.
