About Short Everest Base Camp Trek
The Everest base camp short trek 5 days is a perfect alternative to the EBC 14 days trek package. We have curated this itinerary to offer travelers with a short time an opportunity to trek in the Khumbu region and enjoy the sensational beauty of the Himalayas. The Everest base camp short trek is for trekkers of all ages, experience, and fitness levels.
The Everest base camp short trekking package involves moderate walking and trail conditions. You only trek for two days on this trek. The trek begins from Lukla and descends to Monjo village for the night stay. The trail descends through lush rhododendron forests and small villages. The next day, following the Dudh Koshi River, you will walk via dense forests, crossing numerous suspension bridges to Hotel Everest View.
While trekking from Monjo (2,835 m/9,301 ft) to Hotel Everest View (3,962 m/13,000 ft), you can see stunning views of mountains like Kongde Ri (6,187 m/20,299 ft), Thamserku (6,608 m/21,680 ft), Khumbila (5,761 m/18,901 ft), etc. Likewise, from the hotel, you can see the first mesmerizing view of Mt. Everest (8,849 m/29,032 ft) along with Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft), Nuptse (7,861 m/25,791 ft), and Ama Dablam (6,812 m/22,349 ft).
The trekking part ends here, and the following day, we have arranged an adventurous and breathtaking helicopter flight to Kala Patthar (5,545 m/18,192 ft) and Everest Base Camp (5,364 m/17,598 ft). The helicopter flight is exceptionally amazing as well. You will witness the surreal aerial panorama of the Himalayas up close that only a few travelers get to enjoy.
The helicopter flight will be comfortable and safe. You will fly over beautiful river valleys, lush forests, rolling hills, picturesque villages, and glaciers. The flight lands at Kalar Patthar for 5 to 10 minutes. You will get a chance to stand there physically, enjoy the rejuvenating fresh air, and relish the spectacular mountain panorama.
From here, the helicopter flight continues to the Everest base camp. Due to limited space at the base camp, you will not land here, but the aerial view is equally worth it. The view of Khumbu Glacier and Khumbu Icefall is outstanding too. The later part of the flight goes back to Kathmandu via a short 15-minute stop at Lukla airport to refuel the chopper.
