10 Days Everest Base Camp Trek for Experienced Hikers

Overview

The 10 days Everest Base Camp Trek is even more affordable and a lot quicker. Unlike the 14 days and 12 days trek, trekkers will not be exploring the Namche region and Dingboche for acclimation to save time. Therefore, this trek would be recommended to those who have experience of climbing mountains of higher elevations.

The trek is quick, but this doesn’t mean you will miss out on the treasures of the Everest Region. The trek starts after a quick and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. And from there, trekkers will make their way to Phakding. From Phakding, we make an ascent o Namche Bazaar crossing several bridges on the way. After that, we make our way to the villages of Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche. After that, we head on a rocky and challenging path to EBC via Gorakshep. We will also visit Kala Patthar for outstanding views of Everest and other Himalayan marvels. We have another luxury Everest Base camp Trek for the luxury trekkers.

The 10 days Everest base camp trek offers ample views and experiences as any other trekking route to Everest. So, if a short and affordable trip to EBC is what you are looking for then this it!

The trail to Gorak Shep is rocky and makes it difficult to walk quickly. We move along the Khumbu glacier. Once Gorak Shep is reached, we head for EBC. The trail to EBC is also very rocky as well. Nonetheless, the views are just way to awesome. You can see the mighty Khumbu Ice fall, the upper part of the Khumbu glacier, stunning views of Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori, and many other Himalayan giants from EBC. We will head back to spend the night in Gorak Shep after EBC. Overnight in Gorak Shep.
