  • Lodge

The journey of Short Everest Base Camp Trek begins with the 40 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. For many People, this will be the smallest plane have ever travelled on an exciting start to the Everest trek. This flight takes it to the Khumbu region of Nepal. 

The plane flying to Lukla from Kathmandu has no IFR on board so, we cannot take off until they told the weather condition suitable where we will be landing at Lukla Airport. Because of this long-delayed occurs regularly. 

Lining the stretch of Lukla, it is common to see porters offering their services, most people trekking in this Everest region would have organized by Trekking Trail Nepal. 

Considering the remote location the village on the sky above is surprisingly busy in between the plane carrying trekkers you can see army and rescue Helicopter at the airport. 

Lukla has various shops and lodges that one can have basic western style meals and pick up any last minute items for trekking to Everest Base camp and climb ahead. 

There are many restaurants in Lukla, so you can have tea or breakfast before you begin the first-day trekking. A
typical menu in Lukla will have large variety foods like fried rice, Noodles, soup, Pizza, Mo: Mo, breakfast cereals, hot and cold drinks and most junk foods you can get at home. 

People usually try to avoid eating meat here onwards, as there is no cold storage and the possibilities sick stomach is very high. 

The journey from Lukla to Phakding should take between 2-3 hours going at a slow and steady pace. The trail starts with the gentle climb of the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudhkoshi River which provides a lovely view of most of the days walking. There is the well-worn path with step leading down and up by the time you reach Phakding you will be 200 meters lower than you were at Lukla. The trekking trail from Phakding starts with easy, following the Dudhkoshi River Valley below and both way all around surrounded by Rhododendron forest. There are several small villages along the way to stop for foods and drinks.

There is a large amount of accommodation available at Phakding, but as the itinerary of Short Everest Base Camp Trek, we have to walk 2-3 hours more to reach Monjo or Jorsalle crossing several suspension bridges over villages like Tok Tok, Benkar, and Chumoa. We will stay in Monjo or Jorsalle. Most of the lodge is 3 story building with a large dining room, full bar, restaurant. The quality is very basic, the room comes with bed, mattress, and one pillow. There are no electrical socket and toilet is shared. Today several time you have to use the suspension bridges just to cross the Dudhkoshi River

Today’s trekking will take somewhere between 6 and 9 hours depending on your fitness label. As you leave Monjo in the direction of Namche, you enter what you knew as Sagarmatha National Park. To enter you have to buy a ticket by submitting personal details with 34 USD Per person. It is very important to carry your passport with you. 

You will cross the river 2 times today. These High Bridge are decorated by local with prayers flags, although there is no need for prayers, as the bridges are made of steels and feel very secure. There is no shop in between this Jorsale and Namche Bazar. After the second bridge, the trekking trail becomes surprisingly difficult. 

The walk til Namche is steep and continuously upwards, there is no level or downhill walking. This section of the hike before lunch may take 2 or more hours. People of average fitness level, they can walk several minutes only and needs several minutes rest to catch their breath.
After reaching Namche in our lodges, we will enjoy the views and food and then we will go for acclimatization hike to Everest View Hotel. 

The major attraction as an itinerary of Short Everest Base Cam is High Suspension Bridge over Dudh Koshi and first viewpoint with the rest of Mt. Everest from Everest View Hotel. At this altitude, your body will know the lack of oxygen in the air. It will be specially noticed if you attempted the things like running the stairs or playing. 

Namche Bazar is the most important town of Khumbu region, the land of Sherpa people. This town is located at 3443 meters above sea level.

The walk from Namche to Pangboche take between 6 and 8 hours. The day begins with a very steep and tiring walk of out of the Namche village. There is a large amount of construction taking place in Namche Bazar, with many new trekking lodges are being built. The sound of stone being cutting being replaced with the sound of wind blowing with the trees and calming sound of yaks and Jhakpi’s bells. The atmosphere is changed so quickly. 

Tengboche Monastery can be seen in the distance on the clear day, as well as the summit of the Everest. After about 30 minutes of hiking the ground level, offs and your pace will increase. After hours of 2 level and easy trekking, you have to walk downhill loosing much of altitude you gain over the last day so you can use the new steel suspension bridge to cross the river. 

But the altitude you lost now must be gain with the tough 2 hours uphill trekking trail hike. Most trekkers will stop here and have their lunch before an attempt to make a final push to Tengboche. The price of drinks might be 50 % higher than was in Lukla. Although meals like rice, soup, noodles and bread will mostly the same. The lack of Oxygen in the air really noticeable at this levels. Only the sherpa seem to be able to scale this steep hill as normal pace. Everyone else is choosing to take it slow and steady. Tengboche village is located at an altitude of 3868 m. In the village importance of Buddhist monasteries is a major attraction, the largest one of Khumbu Region, while you can see the oldest one in Pangboche village. The structure was build in 1923 but was destroyed by fire in 1989. It is rebuilt with the help of volunteer and under the provision of foreign aid. From here the great view of Everest and Ama Dablam, especially the Himalayas views. In the centre of Tengboche, there is the bakery, which claims to be the highest in the world at nearly 4000 m it is madly to believe. The chocolate cakes delicious and taste of freshly baked yesterday. 

There are the large greenery and centre of the village is for camping and several lodges to choose from for our lunch since we have to move to Pangboche as Itinerary of Short Everest Base Camp Trek with gently sloping downhill via Debuche and short up Hill after crossing Imja River.

Today we will hike along the river of Imja from start to end of the day, till Dingboche, widely known as a river valley or Chukung Valley or Imja Valley. Many people visiting this Everest region of Nepal only go far till Tengboche or Ama Dablam Base Camp via Pangboche, So from here onwards, there are fewer trekkers, porters, guides, and yaks along the trekking trail. There is some lovely family run tea house in the middle of Dingboche and Pangboche in a place called Somare, where you can catch up your breath with some hot or cold drinks. Overall it is easy but long day in the whole itinerary of Short EBC Trekking, with the journey taking up to 9 hours including our 2-3 hours of acclimatization hiking after reaching our destination over NangKarTseng.

The village of Dingboche is located in Chukung Valley at an altitude of 4410 m. All trekkers who follow the normal Everest Base Camp Trek will spend 2 night here in Dingboche for acclimatization purposes. 

Dingboche is heavily relying on Trekking and Tourist, with lodges and tenting area comprising most Dingboche with some potato fields towards northers east.

The Imja River flows directly east to the village. Most people choose to hang around the village, There are many local bars with a pool table, expensive wifi services, and satellite phone. But here with Short Everest Base Camp Trek, we will end our day after the possible best acclimatization hike to the NangkarTseng Hill on the North side of Dingboche village.

Meal
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Tea house

The day startup with the steep climb of the edge of the Dingboche Village providing the great view down into the Chukung Valley, with Island peak visible at its end. Most people take a short break here and prepare themselves for the long hiking ahead. Today's walk will take up to 6 hours and more depending on how the altitude affects you. 

As you walk along the side of the valley if you looked down to the left at the base you can see another village called Pheriche. There is the medical centre at Pheriche for emergencies can be treated. From minor illness, there is a fixed charge, this charge makes able to the doctor able to treat the local for free. 

Most of the hike today is along with relatively with the ground level. There you can see a few signs of civilization along this trekking trail and in most of the map mention as Dusa. So if you need some refreshment, snack or some food Thukla or Dhukla 4600 m. is the nearest available spot.

For the last 2 hours, the ground becomes steep, rocky and mostly strong cold wind from the base of Everest base camp until you reach the small village of Lobuche. Compare to the places like Dingboche and Tengboche there is not really much here. Just 5 trekking lodges and camping area make up Lobuche.

The village is quite exposed and the high wind can cause lots of dust to blow around the village, because of this the most trekkers choose to relax indoors. The numbers of trekkers passing through this village can very greatly and just common for there to be no accommodation. Trekkers may be asked to share the room with strangers or even sleep on dining room floor with guides and porters. There is no way around this, the nearest lodge is many hours walk the way.

Meal
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Teahouse

Today we have to walk a little over 5 km. It doesn’t sound like much. Because of altitude, this may take up to 5 or even 6 hours. There is no clear trekking trail and you have to walk over loose rocks which adds the difficulties.

The small village of Goreakshep actually the original base camp for climbers heading towards the summit of Everest. The small village located at the base of the peak called Kala Patthar.

The final part of this trek the 3-4 hours walk to base camp is difficult and dangerous. You can several crashed helicopter in the base camp region.

Because the air is so thin at this altitude landing and taking off can be difficult. Unlike the rest of the trail, there is no fixed trekking trail to follow here so we will not recommend attempting this without an experienced guide. The journey takes over the Khumbu glaciers finally ending at the base of Khumbu icefall. You can see you are at base camp when you are looking of the Khumbu icefall. This icefall is regarded as one of the dangerous stages of South Col trail to Everest Summit. 
Depending on what time of year it is, you may see the tents of supporter crew for climbers attempting to the summit of Everest. The month of April and May is the busiest time at the base camp of Everest.

This hike will take you the to top of Kalapatthar elevated 5550m above sea level. Kala Patthar appears as big brown and black bump below the impressive south face of Mt Pumori. Many Trekkers in the Everest region will attempt to summit Kala Patthar since it provides the most accessible point to view Mt. Everest, from Base Camp to Peak. Due to the structure of Mt. Everest, the peak cannot be seen from base camp.

We will back to our tea house once again, pack up the bags, enjoy the breakfast in the Base Camp of Mt. Everest of the first summer and start trek down towards Pheriche or Pangboche Mostly on the same trekking trail and complete the itinerary of day 7 of Short Everest Base Camp Trek.
