Short trek to Everest

Have little time yet still want to see Mount Everest? You can enjoy the majestic Himalayas’ splendor without going far on these short trek to Everest. Walk paths that last five to ten days and discover amazing landscapes, lively cultures, and life-changing experiences. See which of our top choices for short Everest treks will be ideal for your upcoming trip.

Best Time to Go: Seasons and Weather Considerations

The activities you plan to undertake while in the Everest region will determine the ideal time to visit. Trekking is best done in the spring (March to May) or autumn (October to November), although you can take a helicopter tour whenever the weather is nice (not during the monsoon season).

While the winter months of December through February aren’t necessarily “bad” for trekking in the Everest region, they are certainly the off-season. It can get chilly, so you must be ready for subfreezing temperatures. 

It is not recommended to visit the area during the monsoon season, which runs from June to September. In addition to the rainy weather, which can cause mudslides and landslides on paths, rain clouds can obstruct views of the mountains. 

Therefore, visiting the Everest region of Nepal in the spring and autumn makes your journey more convenient and enjoyable.

Some Top Short Trek to Everest

There are many treks and tours to Everest and some of them are multi-days whereas some are a day trip or a couple days. Trekking to Everest always resembles a day hike but here we are talking about the smaller hike or treks in terms of days.

Then, the trekking paths lead to the picturesque Tengboche monastery and the villages of Kunde, Monjo, and Khumjung.

Optional Trip/Tour Besides the Short trek to Everest

Everest base camp can be conquered even in the shortest time which is not trekking but by airways. Magic Himalayas also have the option of seeing Everest or landing through flight and helicopters. Here I have mentioned some of the airways that provide the chance of being on Everest in a short time. Here are they:

Everest Mountain Flight

The magnificent Everest Mountain Flight offers stunning views of Nepal’s Himalayan mountain ranges. The aircraft leaves from Kathmandu and takes visitors on a one-hour tour that passes over many of the Himalayan ranges and the tallest mountains in Nepal. 

A peek of twenty of Nepal’s tallest peaks can be seen during the Everest Mountain Flight. You will begin with the mountain closest to Kathmandu, Langtang Lirung, and fly towards Mt. Everest in the east.

Nepal is home to Mount Everest. It is one of the main Himalayan countries in the world. Its northern border is made up of many mountains with snow-capped summits. When compared to other mountains on Earth, they all seem to be far more noticeable, outstanding, and high.

After that, the plane turns, giving the passengers one more glance at the scenery as they return to Kathmandu.

The best and most convenient choice for people who don’t hike or climb mountains but yet want to see Mount Everest and the Himalayan range up close in just one hour is to take an Everest Mountain flight.
