Trip Overview

4.1/5 - (41 votes)

The Short Everest Trek is an appropriate journey to the world’s highest national park, Sagarmatha National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 5-Day Everest Short Trek is one of the best options for visitors who want to view Mt. Everest in the least amount of time.

This trek is a good option for short-time travelers. If you want to trek in the Everest region of Nepal but are unsure of time constraints, a short Everest trek is for you! To find people and their lifestyle in the mountainous region of Nepal, follow the trail to reach Namche Bazaar, the popular trade center of the Everest region.

Namche Bazaar is not only the business center of the Everest region but also the gateway to Everest.

When you hike to the Everest View Hotel, you will be rewarded with views of the mountains in the Everest region, such as Mt.Everest (8,848m), Mt.Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Nuptse (7,855m), Mt. Thamserku (6,723m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,856 m), and many other peaks in the Everest region. Imagine that you are experiencing the wilderness in the mountains with a cup of tea or coffee.

The trek begins with an exciting flight to Lukla. You have an amazing experience flying over a picturesque landscape with a view of parallel mountain views.

Start Short Everest Trek

Landing on a narrow runway in a dramatic area is scary but daring! Upon arriving at Lukla, you descend to the Dudhkoshi River and ascend to Phakding. Heading into the Rhododendron forests, we cross the suspension bridges over the Dudhkoshi River and enter Everest National Park.

We cross villages like Manju and Jorsale to reach Namche. One of the highlights of this trek is the tour of the museum with a photo gallery returning from Samboche Airport, Kunde Hospital, and Namche.

The Short Everest Trek is the easiest in Nepal’s Everest area.

Anyone with low physical endurance can opt out of this trek. Since it is at a low altitude, there is a very low risk of suffering from altitude sickness. It’s an easy trek on Everest with a mix of fun, adventure, and natural glory.

During this trek, you hike to Khumjung, which is considered the Sherpa capital of the Solukhumbu region and is a very large city by mountain parameters.

This can be the best choice if you have a short time and want to trek the Everest region.

Thank you a lot for your organization about my trek. It was a superb experience; all was perfect. Karma is a very nice person and a good guide. I appreciated trekking with Odyssey (a reliable Nepal trek operator). If I come back to Nepal, I will be happy to ask you to trek with me again. I am thinking about Annapurna or the Everest trek.

Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.

They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
