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!
Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
