But, did you know that as well as the world famous Everest Base Camp Trek there are also alternative trekking routes that will bring you to Everest Base Camp?


And what if you simply don't have enough vacation time to trek to Base Camp?


Well, there are pretty of choices for a short trek in Nepal as well as a Everest Highlights trek that you can do in less than two weeks!


Even on this shorter Everest trek, as you'll see from the photo below, although you won't hike as far as Everest Base Camp, the view of the summit of Mount Everest is pretty cool.
