The Everest base camp short trek is designed for those people who dream of stepping on the base camp of the World's highest mountain but don’t have a long time. Magic Himalaya Treks is the leading adventure company based in Kathmandu Nepal. This company has designed a short Everest base camp trek for people’s easiness.

A short Everest base camp trek takes you to the elevation of 5364 meters above sea level near Khumbu icefall. On the day of Everest base camp, you will be standing on the Khumbu glacier. This glacier is also the Everest base camp and the base camp is on Khumbu glaciers. The Everest base camp changes with the move from the glaciers.

Everest base camp is where the expedition group tented their camp before the technical part of the Everest expedition started. During the expedition season of March and May we can witness thousands of tents with different names and brands on them. We are also able to see many yaks carrying expedition equipment and food to the climbers. The base camp is like a Market with different kinds of music along with Sherpa guides, porters, and expedition groups.

The short 10-day Everest base camp trek journey starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu International Airport to Lukla Airport. While flying from Kathmandu be seated on the left side of the small plane to see the magnificent Mountain View along with some Monasteries and villages on hills below. Having breakfast and meeting porters at Lukla excites people to start the journey towards the Phakding following the Dudh Koshi River.

The Next day the short trek to Everest journey starts also following the Dudh Koshi River. We will pass lots of Suspension bridges along the way including the Hillary Suspension Bridge. The Hillary bride is on the climbing part which is before the first viewpoint of Everest peak. Today we will be entering the Sherpa capital Namche bazaar which is one of the important towns on this route. Passing Tengboche, Pangboche, and Dingbochea we will reach the Loubache. Loubecha is almost 5000 meters in elevation, and harder to sleep during the night.

The Everest short trek first part the next day is from Loubecha to Gorekshap. The second part is base camp the important day for those people who have a dream to stand on the Base of the World's highest mountain. Like this way, the short trek to Everest base camp takes you to the base of Sagarmatha. Then turn back to Lukla for return back to Kathmandu.
