Difference between short & regular EBC Trek

Short Everest Base Camp Trek 11 Days has the same itinerary as the regular Everest Base Camp Trek. This course, however, excludes the portion of Dingboche acclimatization rest. Even if the acclimatization is omitted on this section trekkers will find it easy. Our trekking guides will pace walking in a very uniform way. All our guides are trained well who believes that gradual and uniform walking is the best way to tackle the high altitude sickness issues.

One Pointer for Successful Ascent

It is highly advised that trekkers prepare themselves very well physically. Walking can be very demanding. However, the walking is slightly longer in the return trip. The drop of the altitude will definitely help you pace faster while returning rather than ascending to Everest Base Camp.

Book the Short Everest Base Camp Trek 11 Days with us. Explore Everest in comparatively less price yet full of all the services of regular EBC Trek. Join us for ultimate joy on the walking trails of Nepal.

Client Reviews

Lorraine Morgan

Trip Name: Short Poon Hill Trek

Booked this trek from the comfort at home in the UK. Communication with Dil was brilliant, his response to all my emails were quick and courteous. He tailored the trek around us, as a small group of 4 adults ranging in age from 29 to 69 (who was still recovering from an ACL op last May). His pace was brilliant for our group.

Dil arranged to meet us in our hotel in Kathmandu and talked us through the trek, bringing maps, holdalls and T-Shirts.

The trek was for 3 nights, 4 days staying in good, clean lodges. All was included except our drinks.

We experienced trekking in glorious sunshine up to Poon Hill. There was still snow on the ground and Dil provided the group with crampons, which made walking easier and safer.

Our trek started and ended in Pokhara. Dil and his team collected us from our hotel in Pokhara promptly at the time agreed.

Dil and the porters were brilliant, the porters were more than porters and made our trek even more enjoyable. We felt totally safe and Dil was an excellent guide. The scenery was spectacular.

Would certainly use Awesome Nepal Treks again as Dil arranges trips to Tibet and Bhutan.

The trek was very well organized, had excellent food and accommodation, there was no problems whatsoever and our guide Dil was a very informative, well-spoken and absolutely entertaining guy. The whole experience was amazing and I would strongly recommend Awesome Nepal Treks to anyone who wants a great, enjoyable, hassle-free trip.

My cousin and I traveled to Nepal in 2011 and completed the Everest Basecamp Trek with our guide Dil Thapa.
Dil absolutely made sure this trek would far exceed my expectations and I am grateful for the time we shared together in Nepal.
There are an endless amount of photos and videos online for us to see the natural beauty of Nepal before arriving there. The greatest compliment I can give Nepal (more specifically, Dil Thapa) is this, the beauty of Nepal is its people first and foremost.
