Trip Overview

A short trek designed for those travellers with very limited time frame! If you are willing to trek to Everest region of Nepal but aren’t sure due to the time constraints, then Short Everest trek is the one for you! Walk along the trail that takes you to the popular trading center in Everest region – Namche Bazaar to explore people and their lifestyle in the mountainous region of Nepal. Namche Bazaar is not only a trading centre in Everest region but also an only gateway to Everest. Your hike up to the Everest View Hotel will reward you with the close of views of the mountains in the Everest region like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt Thamerku, and Mt. Ama Dablam and may other peaks in the Everest region of Nepal. Imagine yourself experiencing the wilderness in mountains with a sip of tea or coffee.

Short Everest trek starts with a stimulating flight to Lukla. Flying above the lush landscape with the views of mountain panorama parallel to you is a wonderful experience. Landing on a narrow runway in a dramatic terrain is a terrifying yet adventurous! As you arrive in Lukla, you descend down to Dudhkodhi River and ascend along well paved path to Phakding. Moving ahead along rhododendron forests, we cross suspension bridges over Dudhkodhi River and enter the Sagarmatha National Park. We pass the villages like Monjo and Jorsale to reach Namche. Visit to Syangboche airport, Kunde hospital and a museum with photo gallery on the way to back from Namche is a major highlight of this trek.

Reviews

Jorrel Hill Chang, United State of America 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 into a reality. I really recommend Nepal Hiking team because they were extremely and profoundly effective in their deals and the total price of the package was also arranged by them, which was super convenient for us! The trek itself was amazing, and simply wonderful. I loved the sceneries, and the wonderful natural surroundings that the place has. I loved visiting the religious gumbas, and the dainty colorful prayer flags at every tree btanch and the soires of the monasteries were such a lovely sight. The topography of the whole place was so different; I had never experienced anything quite like that anywhere else. The people and their lifestyles were all also so different; it was quite frankly, humbling to see. The accommodations that we stayed at, the little guesthouses and lodges up in the snow of the mountains were brilliant. I loved my experiences of waking up early in the morning, and then having my breakfast on the terraces of the tea houses overlooking the beautiful and serene Himalayan rages, it was heaven! Nepal Hiking Team took care of everything, and as a result, I ended up having a marvelous time, and I really would say to everyone that you better go with Nepal Hiking Team because they really deliver on their services!
Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
