Everest fast trek is a short Everest Base Camp (EBC) trekking that can be done in 6 days, excluding the travel time. We have many longer and short trekking routes to the Everest region. In longer trekking, we arrive till EBC and in short trek we walk till Shyanboche, Namche Bazzar, Khumjung and Tengboche monastery. For the tourists that don’t have longer time for trekking but want to reach to the EBC, it is the best trekking package. 

In this trek, the tourists have to walk longer distance compare to other trekking. Thus, they should be fit as they have to walk in higher elevation and long distance. People who do jogging, exercise, swimming and cycling, they will have no problem to go with this itinerary.

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and from here our trek starts. The trail leads to beautiful Sherpa village with beautiful restaurants along the whole trail. The amazing trekking trail goes along the “Dudh Koshi River”. The home town of the Sherpa people “Namche Bazzar” is very beautiful in this trek. The Tengboche monastery with big leather drum and Buddhist trumpet are really interesting. During the daily ritual time, the Lamas play them early in the morning and evening. To watch them is marvelous.

The views of the snowcapped mountains are wonderful. In this trek, we have the beautiful views of the Kongde Ri Peak (8,187m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Iceland Peak (6,189m), Lhotse Himal (8,516m), Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho Oyu Himal (8,153m). The tourists reach to Kalapather and EBC and trek back down. Climbers or expedition groups to the Mt. Everest use the same route from Lukla. During the climbing season to the Mt. Everest, we can view the colourful tents with full of tourists in the EBC.
