Everest Base Camp is an astounding and demanding high-altitude trek in Asia with a mountain view of the Mt.Everest Himalayan ranges. Everest Base Camp has one of the longest trekking itineraries, between 14 and 15 days, which might not be suitable for everyone due to the shortage of holidays. So, to shorten the longer trekking days with an impeccable trekking experience, we have a 10-day Everest trekking itinerary.
The 10-day Everest Base Camp trek allows you to explore the scenery of the Himalayan Ranges, the Sherpas’ culture and tradition, religious sites, and diverse nature. Within 10 days of a trek, you would be able to witness the beautiful experience of Everest Base Camp.
The 10-day Everest Base Camp trek starts from Kathmandu and will end after returning by helicopter from Gorak Shep to Lukla and a regular flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. The helicopter ride from Gorekshep to Lukla saves you 3 days from the Everest Base Camp trek, providing you with a wonderful experience of the Himalayas in a limited amount of time.
This trek begins from Kathmandu to Lukla and then towards Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, and finally towards the two famous viewpoints: Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. Once you reach the base camp, your trek will come to an end, and by the end of the 10th day, you will be back in Kathmandu.
By joining our Everest Base Camp Trek program, you get local guides and porters who are well-trained and experienced. We are a local trekking agency that hires trained and experienced local people. By joining our 10-day trekking program, you will have the best trekking experience while also supporting the local people out there.
