Everest Short Trek Overview

The Everest Short Trek is a seven-day trek that takes you to the Everest region and back. For those with limited time, this trek is a preferable choice. You’ll get an amazing view of the mountain and its surrounding peaks and some of the most breathtaking panoramas in the world.

This trek’s highlights include the view of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, the opportunity to explore some of Asia’s most breathtaking landscapes, and getting a taste of what it’s like to be a Sherpa.

You can expect to see a lot of people on this Everest Short Trek. You will be able to interact with them from your vantage point as you walk through their village. The experience is very different from other treks. You are walking through an actual village and seeing how it operates day-to-day.

The Everest Short Trek takes you through dense forests and high-altitude meadows. You will see snow-capped peaks and glaciers along the way. This trek is an excellent choice for those who want to get a taste of what it’s like to be up in the mountains. 

The Everest Base Camp Trek is also known for its challenging terrain and high altitudes, which makes it an exciting adventure to undertake. However, this trek is perfect for people of all age groups who want to experience the beauty of nature without having to worry about long hours on the trail for many days.

The journey starts with a beautiful flight to Lukla. From here, the trek begins in the direction of Phakding, continuing the following day to Namche Bazaar. At Namche, you can see magnificent mountains, including Mt. Everest. The hike ends after travelling down to Monjo and Lukla after a wonderful time in the Everest region. Finally, the journey ends with the flight back to Kathmandu.

Best Time to Everest Short Trek

Prior to starting the trek, it is important to be aware of the best season. It assists you in organizing your journey and ensuring that your trek will be enjoyable. Understanding the seasons also enables you to be prepared for what to expect at different times of the year.

Autumn

The Autumn season is the ideal time to hit the trails of the Everest Short Trek. It starts from September to October. 

The temperature is roughly 15 degrees Celsius during this time of year, with nice, warm days and cooler evenings. The view is much more stunning now that the trees’ leaves are changing colours. Additionally, this is the perfect time to travel to the Everest region, where you will have alluring views of the Himalayas.

Spring

When it comes to climate, surroundings, and temperature, spring is the finest season. It starts from March to May. You can enjoy a magnificent view of the high mountains, glaciers, rivers, dense forests, and more on the Everest Short Trek in the spring.

The likelihood of rain is low, and the humidity level is extremely low. Days are longer, and it is warmer in the middle of the season. The weather does not get too hot or too cold during this dry season.

Monsoon

In Nepal, the monsoon season is unquestionably not the perfect time for trekking. Floods and landslides are very likely. From June through August, it starts.

You may find trekking more challenging during the wet season. This is because the weather changes every hour. There is constant rain and water everywhere, the trails are slippery, and there is occasionally a possibility of landslides and challenging terrain. During monsoons, you might face some difficulty. But still, it can be done by following all instructions carefully.

Winter

The coldest time of year in Nepal is the winter, which lasts from November through January. The nights are quite chilly, with lows around -20 C. However, despite the uncomfortable evenings, the days are pleasant and sunny.

Since it is fairly windy, you must cope with the severe windchill. A handful of the days are bright, sunny, and cloudless. If you intend on trekking in the winter, you can do it with the right approach and preparation.
