Trip Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek 7 Days
Everest Base Camp trek 7 Days Days which sounds quite strange because it normally takes around two weeks. Tourist Link Treks and Adventure came up with the idea of organizing it within seven days. This one-week journey takes you to EBC and comes back from there with a scenic helicopter flight back to Kathmandu.
Nowadays because of the busy work schedule, people do have not enough time for a multi-week trekking journey thus Tourist Link Treks & Adventure started to organize this trip to fulfill your dream of exploring Everest Base Camp Trek in one week. The only difference between a regular Everest Base Camp Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek 7 days are of time duration otherwise you can explore everything that a regular EBC trekker experiences. And another special feature of this journey is you can enjoy a bird-eye aerial view while coming back to Kathmandu which is so beautiful.
First, we fly to Lukla from Kathmandu taking small propeller aircraft. Then we trek to Everest Base Camp exploring the village and mountain along the way. We visit Everest Base Camp and climb Kalapathar 5550m from where we can see a very clear view of Mt Everest, Khumbu glacier, Mt Lhotse, Mt Nuptse, and dozens of other mountains. We take a Helicopter from Gorakshep 5160m and fly back to Kathmandu.
Everest Base camp trek-7 days complexity
The journey to the Everest Base Camp trek is for sure a challenging task that requires physical fitness and little hiking experience. If you consider doing some physical workout and cardio exercise before coming to the Everest trek it will be way easier than you think. We do it steadily taking a significant amount of acclimatization which makes it easier than you think. In short, we can say it’s challenging but not very difficult. The season of this trek is September to December, and March to May.
