Everest Short Classic Trek - 7 Days

Everest Short Classic Trek is a special trekking package offers views of Mount Everest and other Himalayan peaks and short introduction to Sherpa culture. It is designed for those who wish to experience this region without ascending to high altitude. Entry to the Khumbu is by air into the airstrip at Lukla, and from here we follow the route of the Base Camp trek to the gate of Everest, Namche Bazaar.
Panoramic Everest view from the world’s highest place five star hotel, Everest view hotel is the major attraction of this trip.
