Everest Short Trek - 4 Night 5 Days Trek
If you want to experience trekking in Nepal and admire the greatness of the mighty Everest (8848 m), but you want a quick or easy option, then this Everest Short Trek is the one for you. This Everest Trekking package lets you experience trekking in the Himalayas. Enjoy all the beauty and rewards of venturing into the Everest region in just a week.
Short Everest Trekking Program
The Everest Short Trek starts from the capital city, Kathmandu. You will embark on a flight to the unique airport on earth, Lukla, to begin the journey. However, it is not only Everest that you will see, as this Panorama View Trek, or short trek in the Himalayas, truly lives up to its name. On this 5-day journey, you will be able to witness the magnificent views of the highest and most spectacular mountain ranges in the world; mountains such as Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Nuptse (7861 m), Mt. Thamserku (6623 m), and Mt. Ama Dablam (6812 m).
You will experience the beauty of Nepal’s people and villages. On your trek, you will pass the town of Chauri Kharka (2680 m) and reach Phakding. The scattered Sherpa houses and the vicinity filled with spiritual calm will give you tranquillity. Later, you will visit the famous Sherpa market called Namche Bazar. It is also known as the Gateway to Everest, before hiking uphill to Syangboche. This will lead you to the largest monastery of Tengboche. It will give you an insight into the practices of Buddhism.
After you have explored the country’s culture, tradition, nature, and stunning views – all in just one week – you will board a flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu. This short trek needs a medium level of physical strength. It is recommended to be carried out between September and November or March and May. These seasons maximize your chances to see the blooming rhododendron flowers and snowy peaks for which this trek is famed. The short walk to Everest follows the same route as Everest Base Camp Trekking up to Tengboche.
With our experienced guides, you will be in safe hands. Our mission is to make your trip fun and comfortable, which is why we have been regarded as the best in the industry in Nepal.

The cost of a hotel in Namche might be higher in the peak season. However, the same accommodation is available cheaply during the offseason. From Lukla to Namche, you may have to adjust a night at the teahouse during peak season. In short, one can enjoy their trek with reasonable accommodation and food.
Short Everest Trek Without a Guide
You need a guide for Everest Trek when the trek routes are confusing and complicated. And in the case of a short Everest trek, trekking routes are more accessible as you don’t have to trek on poor mountainous, steep slopes and High Passes. In your trekking routes, you can find several tea houses. They can suggest the ways ahead. Thus you can also enjoy your journey without a guide till Namche when you plan to go there on a low budget.
Hiring a guide is always a good option in the mountains. It makes the overall trekking experience less stressful and more comfortable. The choice is yours.
Best Time For Everest Short Trek
This trek is possible throughout the year as you don’t have to trek much in snowy areas at severely dropped temperatures. Traveling during spring and autumn is always ideal for the Everest area trek.
Early March is still cold, but the skies are clean, and you can observe clear views of Everest. Trekking in late March and April are famous months for most trekkers. The Blossoms of many wildflowers, including rhododendron, makes your trek attractive and memorable. So, many trekkers choose this season to see the clear sky and a mesmerizing view of Everest and the colorful rhododendron forest. However, the trekking route may be overcrowded since peak season, even in Gokyo Lake Trek.
During the autumn season atmosphere becomes favorable for Short Everest Trek, i.e., neither warm nor cold. You don’t have to face the low night temperature and warm days; it makes your journey perfect. Trekking Everest in the autumn makes your trip easier due to zero chances of heavy rainfall and slippery routes. So most trekkers also choose to see clear blue sky, a perfect view of Everest, and alluring landscapes this season. The crowd of October can be an issue, though.
Trekking during winter is possible, but the high-velocity wind with low temperatures can limit your trek. Some enthusiastic trekkers choose this season for adventure. Everest short trekking in the summer season is also achievable. Heavy rainfall and slippery routes make it a bit uncomfortable, but with the proper preparation, the Everest Trek in summer can be fun. Sometimes, mountain Views are also blocked by the fog, although the surrounding is green.
Views During the Short Everest Trek
You can observe several exciting things during the trek from Lukla to the Namche. After reaching Lukla by flight, you witness the landscape’s Greenery.
Phakding is your destination for the first-day trek, during which you can see the Himalayan yaks, donkeys, and horses. Passing the number of small Sherpa villages throughout the journey makes great memories. Plenty of tree species and other fauna attract your eyes, and you will be able to identify these species. Further, the Dudhkoshi rivers add peace to your trek. In Phakding, you can stay in a homestay which provides a chance to see the culture of Everest and the religion of the people who live there. At night, you get views of a star in the gloriously clear sky with a backdrop of mountains.
Trekking routes from Phakding to Namche consist of steep incline slopes. The streets make you cross the Dudh Koshi River through a suspension bridge many times. If the weather is clean, you can see the first view of Mt Everest while trekking on steep mountainous slopes. Before reaching Namche, you will get the opportunity to cross a double-suspension bridge. Here, you can nearly observe the Dudh Koshi River, crystal clear water, and the peacefully blown wind.
Explore Namche Bazaar
Everest viewpoint: After a short hike from Namche, reaches the Everest viewpoint. It offers you the majestic views of Mt Everest and the panoramic view of Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu, Mt Ama Dablam, and other peaks.
Traditional House and stupa: Namche offers to visit a traditional house built about 150 years ago. Many Buddhist stupas make to think about their culture, which is quite interesting. Tibetan-style painting makes the perfect structure.
Namche monastery: Namche monastery was built about 300 years ago and is also called Nyingmapa monastery. Here, you can see the mesmerizing view of the Himalayas along with Greenery and hilly peaks. Nyginge and Dumji festivals have greater importance in this monastery, and many people come to pray for good.

Is a Short Trek to Everest Base Camp Possible?
Of Course, the route is the same for both until reaching Namche. For a short trek, your ending point is Namche Bazaar. To get to Everest Base Camp, you must go upward routes to Tengboche, Dingboche, Dughla, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep, adding about six more days.
How to reach Everest View Hotel
Everest View Hotel is the first-ever luxury hotel made at 3963 meters from sea level. This is also the most magical viewpoint in the Khumbu region. 1 hour of walk takes you to the Everest view of the hotel from Namche. It would be best if you trekked to Namche from Lukla, which takes two days.
Another way to reach Everest View hotel is via Aircraft, which drops you in about 1 hr from Kathmandu. You can see the Himalayas’ view above the clouds through a helicopter.
Can you Book Everest’s Short Trek Solo?
Yes, you can; Everest short trek allows you to explore the natural beauty of the Himalayas. You can book your trek solo if your tour ends at Namche. But if you plan to climb above the Namche, considering deep forest routes, you may have a problem with the solo trek.
How Hard is Everest View Trek?
Everest View trek is less than a week’s journey in the Himalayas. It’s the shortest and the most leisurely mountain trek in Nepal in terms of distance, altitude, and remotes. The total length of the Everest View trek is about 40 km, and the highest height is the Everest View Hotel at 3963m. So, the chances of altitude sickness are also meagre. Further, this is a luxurious trekking region of Nepal with the best accommodation and Food. So, you don’t need to worry about Short Everest Trek’s Difficulty.

Short time in Nepal
We took a short Everest trek because we had a very short time in Nepal. The time pressure caused us to shorten the trip, but adjusting the route of the office staff really helped me to fulfill my dream of a walk on Everest Short trek. I really recommend the My Everest Trip, because they are more efficient with their offers and the total price of the package is also regulated for them, which is much easier for us! The journey itself is unique and simply unique. Mr puru who is the owner of ( My Everest Trip) knows each and every step of the Everest trek and explain everything when I call him via WhatsApp and I believe he and I book a trip with him.
I love the landscape and the beautiful natural environment that is in this area and beautiful colorful prayer flags on every tree and parties in monasteries are very beautiful scenery. The topography of the whole place is very different; I’ve never experienced anything like it anywhere. People and their way of life are also very different; very straightforward, humble to look at. The cottages where we stayed, small inns, and snow huts in the mountains were very nice. I love getting up early in the morning and then having breakfast on the terraces of the tea houses overlooking the beautiful and peaceful slopes of the Himalayas, that’s heaven! The Nepal Hiking Team will take care of everything and I have had a great time I can tell everyone that it is better for you to join the Nepal Hiking Team because they actually provide their services. !
Fever Best EBC Trekking for my Life
We joined the Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC) with My Everest Trip. Perfect timing for every step. Easy to communicate with Hari, who is our guide. We were so comfortable booking our trip so we did and it was our right decision. Our guide was helpful and Knowledgeable, and I think he knows everything. Taking care of our food, explaining everything, and taking great care of our flight schedule to Lukla, Thank you for My Everest Trip.
Everest Short Trek in Nepal
We had a short EBC trek organized by My Everest Trip and it was an amazing trek. We were able to organize everything from France, getting all the information we needed very quickly. They organized our trip exactly as we wanted and every detail was perfect. Trekking guide and porters both are very friendly and very smart than others company used guise who care us in hole trip. were A great experience!!! For sure when I’ll go back to Nepal I’ll organize another trek with them very soon And if I meet some other clients I will highly recommend my Everest trip group and Mr. Puru who make our trip without any problems.
Everest Short Trek
The great Everest short trek ( EBC) is the most spectacular trip that I have ever known.
What I liked personally about this trek was the courtesy and reception of the inhabitants at this place. Even though the trek was steep and sharp we had ample routes to trek and enjoy. We even had time to take marvelous pictures at each and every step of the trek. I should say that I went on this trek at the right time. It was a life-changing experience for me!!
Better Accommodation and Good Food
My partner and I recently completed the Everest Short trek with My Everest Trip in December. I could not have asked for a more supportive and trustworthy company to go with. Our guide Hari and porter, Mr Birman lama, was an excellent and professional team from when we were picked up in Kathmandu and throughout our trek.
Hari and Birman were supportive and informative along the trek, and I recommend requesting them. We had a perfect time without any problems. Still, the views were good. My Everest Trip guides are knowledgeable and very attentive; they know very well about Sherpa culture and all the mountain names and Hight, and they always look for us better accommodation and good food; I would recommend this company to anyone thinking of doing the Everest Short Trek.
Himalayan range and beauty of vast wildness
I came to know My Everest Trip by chance with my previous trekking to ABC at the end of last year This was my second time with My Everest Trip for organizing such a wonderful trip to Everest Short Trek with my wife and children and it was truly amazing, enjoyable trip, it leaves us a profound experience with spectacular view of some highest mountain and many others peak in the Himalayan range and beauty of vast wildness.
My Everest Trip range can be strenuous, but our guide Ram helps us every step of the way which makes the trip a complete hassle-free, we are very thankful for his service and would recommend it to anyone coming to Nepal for a hiking adventure.
Once again, thank you for all to make our trekking trip an unforgettable event for us And we are definitely coming back to Nepal again.
Experience a once in a lifetime adventure
We just completed the s-day hike to Everest Short Trek. Five of us on the trip, plus our guide, Hari. The trip was terrific, and our guides were there to help and assist every step of the way. He is very helpful and accommodating. Hari has made this trip many times, shared about the culture and people, and taught every mountain’s name and height. He has such good knowledge to know everything.
I highly recommend this trip to any adventurous souls who want to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Wonderful, Professional, and personable organization
I would like to thank My Everest Trip for organizing our trip. Their efforts created a seamless experience that allowed us to enjoy the wonders of the Himalayas, the warmth of its people, and the rich cultural heritage of this majestic land with Everest Views in front of our eyes.
Although this was considered a short trek, our guide, assistant guide, and porters all kept us well-rested, hydrated, and motivated to make our daily trek manageable and enjoyable.
They were also very flexible in our planning and were able to make last-minute adjustments to the schedule when we were ahead or behind pace. I also want to thank Mr. Puru who arrange everything during the trip it is A wonderful, professional, and personable organization from start to finish! Namaste!
Wow! Everest short trek with My Everest Trip
Thanks, Krishna for hosting us and for your patience with warm hospitality, and for showing your great country with the beautiful Himalayas.
It is my dream to trek Mt. Everest but I have a few days only but still Loved the Everest short trek accomplished in our short leisure. Each & every activity was nicely managed for us.
Mr. Puru did his duty was very attractive to Evener who don’t let any space for dissatisfaction.
We will surely be returning to do the Everest base camp trek in our long leisure. The mountains and the people of Nepal are fantastic.
Best regards Mahakulina
Everest Short Trek
We absolutely fell in love with Nepal after doing the Everest short trek. When my friend and I started to plan our trip to Nepal we were not quite sure which trek we wanted to do, just that it should not be a very long and strenuous one. The manager was very helpful giving us different options to choose from and in the end, we chose the Everest short trek which gave us the opportunity to see Mount Everest, fly to Lukla and visit the gate to Everest, Namche Bazar. It all seemed very appealing to us, and we don’t regret it for a moment. We had the choice to go on a private trip on day 3 or join another group on day 4. We decided to join a group since it could be fun to meet more people. This also gave us the opportunity to be well-rested and well prepared.
After a long flight and all the procedures at the airport, it was nice to go outside and be greeted by a friendly face, jump in a car, and be taken to a nice hotel. When you are a first-time visitor to Nepal, Kathmandu can be quite overwhelming, especially if you are not an experienced, traveler. So I was quite happy we asked the manager to find a hotel close to his office in the heart of Thamel. It was a nice and clean hotel, with good beds, air-conditioning, and hot water in the shower.
The day before we left for Lukla we met our group and our guide at My Everest Trip for a briefing and an update on the weather conditions, the weather can be quite tricky and can always cause delays when it comes to flying Lukla.
The next morning we were ready to go, the weather caused no problems and gave us the most spectacular view of the Himalayas from the plain.
It’s not possible to describe in words how beautiful this place is, you really have to go and see it for yourself. Our guide did a great job, his knowledge and love for his country were reflected in everything he did. He was always close, making sure everybody was happy and safe and taking care of everything.
The Everest short trek is a good choice for a short trek. You see so much in a few days and learn so much about the history and the culture and we cannot thank My Everest Trip enough for giving us such a wonderful adventure.
After returning to Kathmandu we visited the office several times for good advice or just to drink a cup of tea with the manager and every time we were greeted by his kindness and enthusiasm. The manager and his staff really offer the best service you could ask for. Therefore we will return to Nepal and My Everest Trip for another adventure because we are now in love with Nepal
Best Guide and Best Company
Being a second-time visitor to Nepal, I know where to go when I want to go trekking. A few years back, I did the Annapurna circuit trek; this year, I had less time, so Puru suggested The Everest Short Trek, which was a good option for me as I wanted to see the Everest region. Puru gave me Yam as a guide; I trekked with him last time. Also, he is very professional, and we connected well, so I was thrilled that we could do another trek together.
At My Everest Trip, things happen in the blink of an eye, every request you might have is taken care of, and you don’t have to worry about the staff not being insured or any other issues. The treks are planned very carefully with the acclimatization days necessary to avoid altitude sickness, and there is no rushing through.
Everest Short Trek was magnificent. It was great fun to visit Namche Bazaar, which is so vivid and with many happy people preparing for adventures. I also enjoyed seeing the Tengboche Monastery, but the highlight was the views of the world’s most beautiful mountains. I almost feel sad I did not have more time because I wanted to explore this region.
I hope I find the opportunity to return to Nepal for the third time in a few years. And Idon’tt has to look for the company because I know exactly where to find Puru and his team in his small orange office with a big smile on his face when you enter the door.
Thank you, Puru and Yam, for another great adventure.
Amazing Trip Amazing Guide
I went to Nepal for ten days in March and am a beginner at trekking. Luckily, I met Puru (MyEverestTrip), who suggested Everest Short Trek.
I love this trek. In a short time, I saw Mt. Everest and many other mountains with culture and exciting flight to Lukla; in the future, I would love to again this trek and touch my soul on Everest.
