Trip Overview

Do you ever feel curious about what lies in the much-talked-about Everest region? Yes, we know you have heard of the mighty mountains, glistening rivers, and the alpine forests. The vibrant settings of the cultural villages and the tightly-knit communes of Sherpas add to the Everest experience. Our Short Everest Trek that runs for seven days is prepared for travelers who want to explore the Khumbu region but have fewer days to travel. A trip designed explicitly for the travelers who have problems acclimatizing but want to visit the area once in their lifetime. The Short Everest trek takes you to the Everest region and covers much of your Everest experience. The tour that begins in Lukla takes you across dense green forests and beautiful panoramic settings in an ideal, less strainful trek.

One of the major highlights of the Short Everest Trek is our acclimatization in the vibrant Namche Bazaar. We hike up to the Everest View Hotels and witness many neighboring Mount Everest peaks. To name a few, in this journey, you will see the range that covers Mr. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, accompanied by Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Thamserku, et cetera. You will be hiking up to the hotel located at the highest altitude in the world; The Everest View Hotel. Our journey of the trek continues as we visit the local settlements of Khumjung/Khunde. To observe the valley’s fine arts and culture, we make a short trip to the Sherpa Culture Museum and Everest Photo gallery. We then travel further to trekking up to the Dudh Kosi River and catch a flight to Lukla as we plan our return to Kathmandu.

Overall, this is a relaxed, less tiring journey and aims to give the travelers some of the major highlights of the province. For instance, some trekkers will want to dig into the area but are not keen on exhausting themselves. If you are one of those people who want to tap into the beauty of the Everest region minus the hassles of the base camp, then the Short Everest Trek might be the answer.  We descend to the beautiful rivers and enter the iconic Sagarmatha National Park via Monjo. Our trip to villages like Monjo and Jorsale is another exciting part of the outing. Hence, we think this tour might serve you in natural bio-diversity, proper relaxation, beautiful mountain views, the residing arts, and culture. But most importantly, even without the hike to base camp, it will not deprive you of the true Everest essence!

The trip is for people with instilled adventure spirits and requires little physical training. Our Short Everest Trek is one of the more accessible options of the Everest Region Trek; while you are on this trek, you do not have to worry about the altitude sickness that comes with the journey of an Everest Base Camp Trek.

We took short Everest trek package because we had a little time in Nepal. The time limit caused us to make the trip a bit short, but the customization of the itinerary by the staffs at the agency really helped me to fulfill my dream of trekking to Everest

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about
