Overview of 12 Days Short Everest Base Camp Trek

Short Everest Base Camp trek – 12 days, is a hike around Mount Everest region, the world’s highest peak on the earth, in the Himalayas. It is positioned in the middle of two countries, Tibet and Nepal. The name Sagarmatha, given to the mountain in the dignity of George Everest, has many definitions in Nepali.

Everest is much more than just a mountain; reaching it takes more than a straightforward trek. The scenery of woodlands, Mountain guide, villages, glacial moraines, and foothills can be captured in images at every turn of the tour, which others have dubbed “the steps to heaven.”

For enthusiastic explorers, not frightened to work up a sweat, our entire trekker’s support team will initiate you to a native culture before drawing air to the top of the world.

Boundless Adventure Trekking Company provides a beautiful and comfortable journey for a 12-day Everest Base Camp trek in Sagarmatha National Park. We offer a short Everest trek from Kathmandu in 2023 and 2024.

The Altitude of Mount Everest is 8848.86 meters (17,598 feet) from sea level. But the neighboring peaks are Mount Nuptse, 7,861 meters; Mount Lhotse, 8516 meters and Lhotse Shar, 8383 meters high. There are also very famous for expeditions. However, the walkable altitude of Mount Everest Base Camp is 5364 meters from sea level.

Most hikers worldwide get inspired by discussing Nepal’s short Trek (EBC). The 12-day short Everest trek is into the eastern Himalayas route, and multitudes of idealistic travelers have gained relevant experience.

The Everest expedition began in 1920 AD, but there was never a permanent Base Camp due to moving glaciers. The journey led by a team of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay decided to make it more feasible to keep materials at the mountain’s foot.

The first challenge for all those trying an Everest push is the Khumbu Icefall, which starts outside the door. Similarly, the Shor trek in the Everest region 12 days can be completed within 12 days from Kathmandu. For that, you are required to take a small aircraft to Lukla airport and then take off from Lukla to Kathmandu at the end of the trek.

Sagarmatha National Park

Most trekkers trek to Everest Base Camp, and many climbers climb Mount Everest in the Khumbu area. Similarly, there are not just one mountain and Base camp. Many people went to Base Camp and Mount Everest because of the Highest mountain in the world. However, you are trekking or traveling into the Sagarmatha National Park. You can see many different wild animals along the trekking trails.
