overview

This 9 days Everest Best Camp trek is perfect for trekkers who are short of time yet very keen to scale the Everest Base Camp (5364 meters). The trek trail takes you to elevation above 3000 meters; despite having no separate days for acclimatization, this package does not compromise the fun of this adventure.

You will relish the experience to the maximum as you get to relish a variety of things with the change in the landscape and vegetation with the drop in the mercury level. The jungle vegetation transforms into alpine shrub and you get to experience a different form of scenic beauty as you head to the village named Gorak Shep. You will get the opportunity to witness beautiful farmlands and interesting Sherpa villages. You will step in the national park at the highest altitude, that is, Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO listed heritage site and then reach the tourist hub, Namche Bazaar (3440 meters). The most favorable time to take this trekking journey is Spring and Autumn even if this can be accomplished at any time of the year.
