Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek – Trip Overview

The short trek package of the Rapid Everest Base Camp offers a limited experience of an in-flight experience for hikers and a great interest in conquering Everest base camp (5,364 m / 17,600 ft). This trekking route to Mount Everest is over 3,000 meters high and has no adaptation to the environment to experience the mighty Everest without having to take risks.After a 35-minute flight from Kathmandu, trekking starts from Lukla (2,642 m / 8,668 ft), which is the gateway to the Khumbu region. Then the trails pass through the farmlands and the village of Sherpa. Then enter the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and reach the Namche Bazaar (3,440m / 11,287ft). The forest vegetation became alpine shrubs and the landscape of the last village of Gorak Shep became more dramatic. Then, you will walk along the Khumbu glacier to the Everest base camp (5,364m / 17,600m) in front of the horrible icefall. The early ascent of Kala Patthar (5,550 m / 18,210 ft) behind the village offers the most exquisite 360 degree panoramic view of Mount Everest (8,848 m / 29,028 ft) and other peaks.

Returning the same route is relatively faster and easier. You can hike almost all year round, but at the spring and Autumn Festival there are more hikers along this popular route. Our 10-day trekking package at Everest base camp includes a permit, your guide, local porters, air and land transportation, mountain lodging, dining and drinking water.

Single room will be available based on the additional charge if you like to have the single as well. The Himalayan Adventure Nepal will organize rooms with private bathrooms with all facilities . However, tea houses in some places have only shared toilets. It’s easy to find individual rooms in Kathmandu and low trekking trails, but can be difficult to find at higher altitudes.

Meals:

On our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese cuisine and the most common international cuisine (Tibet, continent, Italy, India, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served at the tea house or the house menu, where we will spend the night and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be served during the trek and at Kathmandu, only breakfast will be served. The hotel will also offer welcome and farewell dinner for the guest.

Can I be a good trekker?

As you know Rapid Everest Base Camp is short ,suit and cozy trek  for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack.at least the trekker need to be prepared physically and mentally as you might even need to walk 8 to 9 hours each day. Walking in higher altitude is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we have good health with average physical fitness, positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully and create the lifetime experiences . It will be better to have exercised and jogging regularly before embark on the trek to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is preferred but no technical skill is required. It is important that we consult with our doctor before booking this trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform Himalayan Adventure Nepal before booking the trek.
