Overview

The 12-day short Everest base camp trek is shortened form of the 15-day Everest base camp trek. Since every trekker knows that going up to the Everest base camp is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We have designed this 12-day Everest base camp journey to fulfill the dreams and demands of the trekkers while maintaining the AMS-friendly feature. Certainly, this 12-day journey to the Everest base camp is meant to assist trekkers who want to experience Everest swiftly and affordably.

With this thoughtfully planned 12-day itinerary, you'll undoubtedly enjoy the close-up view of Mount Everest and the main sights in the Khumbu region. It should come as no surprise that trekkers will feel in amazement after encountering the powerful blend of natural beauty, intriguing culture, warm Sherpa hospitality, and a greater sense of accomplishment. As you walk along the mesmerizing trails on this trek, you will be able to see the magnificent Sagarmatha National Park's flora and fauna and the spectacular scenes of the four tallest mountains in the world. Also, you will be welcomed to this magnificent region by the charming towns, monasteries, and Sherpa cultural legacies that are deeply rooted in Tibetan culture.

The 12-day short Trek to Everest Base Camp is moderately difficult. However, making use of enough time to acclimate at lower elevations reduces your chance of getting altitude sickness and gets you ready for a higher-altitude trek. With our assistance, you will be able to go to Everest base camp at your own pace, with the best supervision. If this does not suit your needs then, you can check out our 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek or even Everest Three High Passes Trek.

Since our bodies are not accustomed to staying at such a high altitude. We will need to take a day off in Namche to allow our bodies to acclimate. Instead of sleeping, you should keep active by going on quick hikes across the region to accelerate the acclimatization process. At Namche Bazaar, there are a lot of multiple options to do on this day of acclimatization. On the western side of Namche Bazaar, there is a historic Sherpa village named Thame that we may visit for the day.

Alternative destinations include Syangboche, Khunde, and Khumjung. These destinations will also be a fantastic substitute for the close acclimatization hike. Once you have finished one of these hikes, you will come back to Namche Bazaar. Shortly after you arrive in Namche, you may chill while browsing the internet at one of the town's cafés or eateries. Overnight at the Hotel in Namche Bazaar.

The final acclimatization day of our trek to Everest base camp comes on this sixth day. Following breakfast at your lodge, your trek guide will take you upward to the Nangkar Tsang Gompa or lead you on a full-day hike through the Chukkhung Valley. We believe that the best option for acclimatization is the Chukkhung Valley. If there is time, you may also ascend the Chukkung-Ri for a breathtaking view of Mounts Amadablam, Baruntse, and Makalu. However, Nangkar Tsang Gompa is also a desirable choice for an outstanding landscape view. Awe-inspiring views of the majestic peaks, including Lobuche, Cholatse, Taboche, Thamserku, and Ama Dablam, can be seen from this spot. You will return to Dingboche as soon as one of these two journeys is Completed. Overnight at the lodge in Dingboche.

Starting today, your walk will get a little more challenging as you ascend to a much greater altitude. Beginning from the ridge above Pheriche Village, there are a number of ascending routes that lead to Lobuche. As you continue forward, you'll soon realize that you are approaching the Khumbu Glacier and eventually reaching the higher Thukla Hills. On this hill, you can see the memorial stupa that was built in memory of the climbers who died in this region. As you continue, you will ascend via the trail intersection that will take you to Lobuche. However, this ascent is challenging and crosses a loose moraine. Right after you reach Lobuche, you'll check into the lodge. To further enjoy the breathtaking views of Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse, and Lhotse, you will spend the remaining time ascending to the ridge on the east side. Overnight at the lodge in Lobuche.

You will travel to Everest Base Camp on this day, and your dream of standing on the base of the highest mountain in the world will finally come true. The lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier will be our first stop on the journey. Following this path, you will reach Gorakshep after a few inclined ascents. You'll stop after getting to Gorakshep and leave your backpack there since you'll need to come back for an overnight stay. Here you will be greeted by the exceptional scenery of Mounts Changtse, Lingtren, Khubutse, and Pumori. We'll enjoy the views while eating lunch here before moving on to base camp through the Khumbu Ice Sheet. Altogether, you'll need around 1.5 hours to complete the trek and traverse the glacier to reach Base Camp.

You'll know you've reached Everest Base Camp as soon as you start to spot the colorful flags at the base of the Khumbu icefall. It is amazing to arrive at the base of Everest, and it is an accomplishment for every trekker. We'll thus make the most of our time in base camp by taking some photos, enjoying the scenery, and celebrating our accomplishments as a way to remember this unique moment. After having a wonderful time up there, we will depart the Everest base camp and return to Gorakshep in an hour. When we return to Gorakshep, we'll take the same path we did to get to Everest base camp. Overnight at a lodge in Gorakshep

You'll wake up early on this special day and carry on your journey toward Kalapatthar. While in Everest base camp the day before, you were unable to see Everest. But don't worry, you'll see it today from an even nicer perspective. It will take us around two hours to walk from Gorakshep to Kalapatthar. A panoramic view of the beautiful Gorak Shep, Khumbu Glacier, Khumbu Icefall, and Everest Base Camp can be clearly seen from Kala Patthar's highest point.

We take our time as we capture the stunning sights of the towering mountains and surrounding scenery. We will observe Mount Everest glow with sunlight before descending to Gorakshep for breakfast. Soon after finishing our breakfast at Gorakshep, we will pick up our backpacks and make our way to Pheriche. Previously, we had already proceeded on from this road; this time, we just have to go back through this known route, which will lead us to the comfortable lodge where we can spend the night.

Our trek is coming to an end today, so once we reach Lukla, we'll chill and spend some time together with our group members. Stay overnight in a lodge at Lukla.
