The trekking route to Everest reaches above 3000 meters and has no adjustment days to experience the highest Everest without compromising the thrill of the adventure.

Everest base camp trek is generally done in 12 days of time frame with flight from Kathmandu to Kathmandu but this short EBC Trekking also known as rapid Everest Base Camp trekking cuts off the rest days on the route and completes the entire trekking in 10 days. We have premeditated this short Everest base camp trekking package to fit your short holiday and make it memorable experience. In this package we have no rest day and no time to adjust in the middle, so this trek is not for the beginner in the high altitude i.e. 4000m. As Everest has quite difficult landscape and weather is dramatic in the region you will be having great risk doing this trekking.

One of the most popular treks in the world, Everest Base Camp trek is definitely the experience of a lifetime. If you don’t have time for Classic Everest Base Camp trek or you don’t want to spend 15 days on the trail, then this trek is simply for you as this trek is a short version of the trail which can be completed in 10 days. Short Everest Base Camp trek is a perfect alternative to the full Everest Base Camp trek. This Everest Base Camp trek route is for those who lack the time for longer trek or who don’t prefer camping in the Himalaya. You will have incredible views of the beautiful scenery, wide variety of flora and fauna and world’s highest peak Mt. Everest in the trekking trail and also get to enjoy all the tits and bits of the Everest Base Camp within 10 days. This trek route allows you to see most of the same things that you can see on a regular Everest Base Camp trekking but in just 10 days.

On the trail, each day after a few hour steep walk uphill and downhill you’ll get the wonderful moments. But keep in mind that, this short 10 days route doesn’t includes Kathmandu arrival, departure, and acclimatization days on the route to EBC such as Namche Bazaar and Dingboche.

Hence, if you’re physically fit it might be no problem to do this trek swiftly. But if you prefer to do with one extra day acclimatization in trekking route and one free day in Kathmandu after or before the trek, then we recommend you to choose  Classic Everest Base Camp Trekking. For the physically fit trekkers, this shortest trekking to Everest Base Camp saves both time and money.
