6 Days Everest Base Camp Trek: Itinerary, Map, Best Price
The Everest base camp trek 6 days program begins from Kathmandu and ascends to Tengboche village (3,860 m) before taking a thrilling helicopter flight to Kala Patthar (5,644 m). It is a short Everest base camp trek that lets travelers with limited time explore the Everest region and its wonders at their best.
Unlike the usual 14 days & 16 days Everest base camp trekking packages, the Everest base camp trek 6 days is much more convenient, time-saving, and comfortable. It is a perfect short trek in the Everest region that takes you to Everest base camp (5,364 m) in the blink of an eye.
You enjoy trekking in the Sagarmatha National Park and also the breathtaking aerial panorama of the Himalayas up close. The trail winds by lush rhododendron and magnolia forests, crossing the Dudh Koshi river numerous times via hanging suspension bridges.
Sherpas & their cultural heritage
The overnight stays in the beautiful Sherpa villages along the Everest base camp trek route make the journey even more pleasant. Their simple lifestyle and incredible hospitality will win your heart. You get to have a glimpse of their cultural heritage and practices.
The short Everest base camp trekking furthermore involves visits to ancient monasteries and stupas. The fluttering prayer flags and prayer wheels add more depth to the journey.
You'll visit the Khumjung monastery (3,790 m), one of the oldest monasteries in the Khumbu region, and Tengboche monastery (3,867 m), the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region.
Mountains & diverse landscapes
As the trail progresses towards Tengboche village via Phakding (2,610 m) and Namche Bazaar (3,440 m), the mountains gradually open up to present themselves one by one in front of us.
Mt. Everest (8,849 m) is first seen from Hotel Everest View (3,962 m)on the way to Khumjung monastery. Likewise, Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812 m) spectacular view from Tengboche is another big highlight of the short Everest base camp trek.

The helicopter flight to Kala Patthar
In Everest packages like the Everest Panorama trek, the journey ends at Tengboche, and the trekkers retrace the trail back to Lukla. However, in this short Everest base camp trek 6 days, your journey in the Khumbu region doesn't end here. From Tengboche, you'll fly to Kala Patthar and Everest base camp before returning to Lukla.
A helicopter will pick you up from Tengboche and fly you to the Kala Pattar viewpoint with the goal of landing. You'll get 5 to 10 minutes to look around and enjoy the sense of being very close to Mt. Everest. From here, the flight goes across the Everest base camp and Khumbu Icefall.
Relishing the aerial view of these places, you'll descend to Lukla. In the helicopter, we make sure you get a window seat to enjoy the views to their fullest. The helicopter ride will be safe and comfortable, guided by a very experienced crew.
