Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most rewarding treks one can do in one lifetime. 5 Days Everest Base Camp Tour is the shortest and most efficient way to complete this trek which is fit for everyone who can walk for just a few days. Almost every adventurous person has dreamt of being at the foot of Everest at least once in their lifetime. But, due to lack of enough time, physical fitness, and preparation, not everyone can complete the regular Everest Base Camp trek. This trek/tour is designed to let you experience all the outstanding features of trekking in the Himalayan landscape except you don’t have to walk for weeks to get to your destination.

With a mix of rewarding trekking and convenient flying, you can experience the best of both worlds. Trekking up to Namche lets you witness the unique and diverse geography of Nepal's Himalayas and the isolated culture of the Himalayan Sherpa people. By choosing this trek, you also exclude all the high-altitude trekking exhaustion and risks, and it reduces your trekking time drastically. This trek is also sometimes taken as a more promising second chance for those who initially tried and couldn’t complete their Everest Base Camp trek due to various reasons.

In Namche, you will cross an altitude of 3000 meters putting you at risk of altitude sickness, even if it is very slight. This is solved by spending another day at Namche and visiting places around like Tenzing Hillary School and Everest View Hotel. Everest View Hotel is one of the highest hotels in the world and a viewpoint to catch beautiful glimpses of Mount Everest. Then comes the exciting helicopter ride to Everest Base Camp.

The main reason to complete the Everest Base Camp Trek for many is to get close to nature. While you land and spend some time at Kalapatthar, it makes you feel as if there is nothing between you and nature. You are truly on the rooftop of the world, surrounded on all sides by pristine mountain peaks. The glorious Everest stands tall in front of you and you witness it as sunrises over it. 5 day Everest Base Camp Tour lets you achieve everything you can by completing an Everest Base Camp Trek but is shorter and more comfortable.

    Best Guides I Could Ever Ask For

    Guide Ajit is well-versed and knows the precise details of what it takes to do a successful trek in the mountains of Nepal. Only an experienced guide will tell you to take the safer wall side of a narrow trail when mules are carrying heavy loads through the same path. He collaborated with Ram to ensure a smooth trip for all of us. I'm also thankful that I was grouped with some of the most amazing people (fellow trekkers) on the trek.

    Although the teahouses on the trail are basic, Sublime Trails did their best to make us comfortable throughout. I certainly rate them an A+ to do a trek in the Everest region and the mountains of Nepal.

    Flexibility at its Peak

    We gave this review the title above because Mr. Ram (the owner of Sublime Trails) and his crew, Mr. Bibek (our youthful and dynamic guide for EBC trek), Mr. Bikas (strong Sherpa, problem solver), and Mr. Mohan (resilient Sherpa, motivator), were so accommodating to our needs.

    Being family of 3 and having a little child with us made us quite exposed during the journey, yet they treated us like we were invincible and eliminated any signs of weakness with ease. In this context, I'd like to provide the John Wooden remark that seems most applicable to the aforementioned squad "It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

    Despite the fact that we were unable to complete the trek, we continue to remain in awe of the Himalayas. After the trek, M/S. Sublime went above and beyond to ensure that our Nepal vacation was really unforgettable and "A trip of a lifetime" by arranging for us to visit Chitwan National Park and Pokhara.

    We can state without a shadow of a doubt that Nepal is the most beautiful place on Earth for two reasons: the Himalaya, and the people of Nepal.

    We would like to stress for the "Healing Sound Bowl", that we purchased, is a wonderful miracle of modern technology, and it even has a name for itself: The Sanskrit mantra "om mani padme hum" consists of six syllables and serves as a reminder and means of relieving the stresses of daily living.

    We are not finished with Nepal just yet; we plan to return with the same group and give it another go in the hopes of gaining the satisfaction that comes from completing a difficult journey.
