Everest Short Trek, 7 Days

Days: 7 / Difficulty: 2 of 5 (Moderate)

Everest Short Trek offers mountains and villages of the Khumbu, a wonderful mountain panorama and the interesting culture of the Sherpa people. We will visit the villages of  Namche Bazar, Khumjung and Buddhist monasteries, while enjoying mountain view all the time. This is one of the most popular treks in the world, through the land of the Sherpa village, with views of the world’s great 8,000-meter peaks. After a 35 minutes scenic flight to Lukla, the trail follows the course of the Dudh Koshi, The River of Milk. The trek is gradually climbing through forest of rhododendron and magnolia, pine forest, Sherpa villages and Buddhist Monasteries. Namche Bazaar is a village in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Namche Bazaar is the unofficial capital of the Khumbu region of Nepal, and is a major stop-off point for trekkers and climbers heading for Mount Everest base camp. The village is located on crescent shaped mountain slopes that offer stunning views of the mountains across the valley. In addition to an abundance of hotels, the village also boasts three small museums, a stupa, monastery, several cafes (locally known as bakeries) and many well stocked stores. It was once an important trading centre on the route from Tibet to Nepal but has now been largely given over to catering for the needs of trekkers.  In the rest day in Namche Bazaar one can make a excursion to the small air steep to Syangboche and can visit a Everest view hotel from where you can get a close up view of the world’s greatest mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Thamserku, Tawache, Khwande, Khumbila (holy mountain) and many other unnamed mountains and peaks.

Important Notice for domestic flight to and from Lukla

In this matter, you need 1 buffer day to manage all transfer to and from Manthali Airport (OR we adjust the program on Day 2 that you will do the guided sightseeing tour in Kathmandu and later in the afternoon, transfer to Mulkot). We would like to suggest you for driving to Mulkot which is 3 hours driving away from Kathmandu and spend a night there at a hotel, then next morning an hour of driving brings you at Manthali Airport to catch the flights to Lukla. On return, you can fly to Manthali Airport and same day drive back to Kathmandu.
