Nepal (PRWEB) November 26, 2009
The trek to Everest Base Camp (http://syndacast. com/go/EverestTrekking) and nearby Kala Pattar for views of the iconic Mount Everest is one of ITrekNepal's most popular adventures. Thousands flock here yearly not only for the trek and to get as close as possible to Mount Everest but also for the culture and unique Nepali way of life that can be experienced during the climb. ITrekNepal's new six-day Everest trek (http://syndacast. com/go/EverestTrekking) option to and through the Sagamartha National Park - the gateway to Mount Everest - has been designed to offer just about everything that could be sought on a full trek, and now means that even people short on time can appreciate the beauty, tradition and culture of this fantastic destination in the Himalayas.
"Many ITrekNepal guests would like to experience the Himalayas and see Mt. Everest up close but may not have enough time or stamina to trek as far as Everest Base Camp. Our Everest Short trek has been designed so that anyone with average capabilities can trek up into the Himalayan mountains in less than a week and have an incredible experience just as they have imagined," commented Andy Leonard, Managing Director of ITrekNepal.
With an average daily trekking time of five hours over the six days, the schedule is equal to ITrekNepal's much longer Base Camp trek; however it still manages to pack in many of the most popular locations on the Everest Base Camp trekking route (http://syndacast. com/go/EverestTrekking) including Namche Bazaar, Khumjung and the revered Buddhist Tengboche Monastery. The trek also includes visits to Sherpa villages and was routed to gain the most advantageous views of some of the world's highest mountains.
The new six day trek reaches altitudes approaching 4,000m where views of Mount Everest are excellent; however no special training is needed for the climb. Since anyone in good physical condition can enjoy the trek it is highly accessibility for a wider range of people.
Also included in the itinerary are three days in the Kathmandu Valley where guests can simply relax and soak up the rich culture of the region with visits to several well-known World Heritage Sites, or enjoy optional day hikes through villages in the nearby valleys.
Although the complete trip can be customized to suit a range of budgets, for the entire nine-day trek itinerary inclusive of Kathmandu hotels (http://syndacast. com/go/NepalHotels) and domestic flights you can expect to pay less than US $1,000 per person.
ITrekNepal's treks are maintained to the highest standard. Just as with the Everest Base Camp Route (http://syndacast. com/go/EverestTrekking) and all other trekking locations guests choosing the shorter itinerary will also benefit from the all-inclusive ITrek services that include experienced English-speaking guides, nutritious local meals, private local transport and some of the the best mountain lodge accommodations.
