No Acclimatization Itinerary of Everest Base Camp Trek 10 Days

Trek the trail of Everest Base Camp without doing acclimatization activities. For some travelers who have got previous high-altitude trekking and good lung capacity, the trip to Everest Base Camp Trek 10 Days is an ideal choice. You can save two days and it leads to a decrease in the cost of the trekking as well. To those people who have got previous trekking experience, the time they take to reach the overnight destination can help them get acclimatized.

Trekkers don’t do the acclimatization rest days but they do take part in the acclimatization activities. Immediately after reaching Namche Bazaar from Phakding or Monjo, they travel to Everest View Hotel which is at an altitude of 3800 m from the sea level. After exploring the place, they return back to Namche Bazaar at an altitude of 3440 m and stay overnight. Similarly, in Dingboche, they trek Nagarshan Hill (5100 m) and return back to stay overnight in Dingboche (4400 m).

The only difference is that trekkers don’t allocate an extra day for acclimatization rather they perform the acclimatizing activities on the same day they reach Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. By doing this, we intend to provide the safest short trekking in the Everest region of Nepal without the risk of altitude sickness.

For safety purposes and to fulfill the minimum requirement to get permission for trekking in Nepal, we request all our trekkers get travel insurance. Your insurance must cover emergency helicopter rescues, accidents, and medical expenses.

Route Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek 10 Days

Trekkers take the scenic flight to the Lukla airport from Kathmandu. All the trekking crew members are assembled in the town and after a brief stop for coffee, trekking starts. It takes about 2 – 3 hours to reach the first overnight place at Phakding. The next day’s trekking is very scenic as trekkers enter the Sagarmatha National Park and witness Everest for the first time. Crossing the suspension bridges adds adventure to this day’s trekking. Namche Bazaar is another attraction of this day. The town has a plethora of eateries, shops, and lodges where trekkers can enjoy the majestic mountain sceneries as well as relax.
