Delightful Short Trek to Namche!


Thank You Escape Himalaya for arranging me a beautiful trekking journey in the Everest region. I did the Short Everest Trek with Escape Himalaya this past March and it was one of the best short treks in the Everest region. There was not much elevation gain, except trekking to Namche and thus, I did not have to worry about getting altitude sickness. I was worried about getting altitude sickness, but with my guide, Rajendra’s care and the short trekking duration, it went pretty good. The scenery during March during the trail, especially from Phakding to Namche was phenomenal as the woods were lush and beautiful. The Sagaramatha National Park trek was also very enjoyable and I loved the tree-covered paths and the rivers at regular intervals. One would think crossing the rivers on suspensions bridges and wooden walk-0ns would be easy as just regular walking, but its not! Its actually quite nerve-racking to walk on a suspension bridge with the rushing river below!

Namche Bazaar was amazing and the views of the mountains were wonderful. The people at the villages were nice and I got to sit at the small tea-house and sip buttered tea with a view of Everest right in front of me. The visit to the Sherpa culture museum provided me good insight. A short and positively delightful trekking journey with amazing people and a perfect service by Escape Himalaya! Thank You Escape Himalaya!
