Best Short Treks in Nepal - Trekking Itineraries Ranging from 3 to 10 Days

Nepal offers a wide variety of trekking trails. For travelers who are short on time, here are some of the best short treks Nepal has to offer ranging from 3 to 10 days. Each of these treks can be extended; the number of days listed here represents the minimum number of days you need to complete these trails.

Namche Bazaar, the largest village in the Solu Khumbu
Best Short Treks in the Everest Region

With snow-capped peaks and fabled Sherpa culture, the Everest region is famous for some of the best trekking in Nepal. If you don’t have the minimum 12 days it takes to do the Everest Base Camp trek, however, here are a few great shorter treks to choose from.

Beautiful Gokyo lake and village

Gokyo Lakes Trek - 16 Days

The sparkling, pristine blue and green waters of the Gokyo Lakes are one of Nepal’s most memorable sights. They comprise the highest freshwater lake system in the world, at around 5,000 meters. The Gokyo Lakes trek is ideal for people who want to trek in the Everest region, but who want more variety of views and fewer nights spent at very high altitude.

Kimkim's trusted partners in Nepal organize weekly group departures during the spring and fall trekking seasons, as well as private treks that can run on any date from February to June and September through November.

Wow! This was such an amazing holiday. Amanda, Raj and their team at Himalayan Trails were just so great to work with.

Wow! This was such an amazing holiday. Amanda, Raj and their team at Himalayan Trails were just so great to work with. Our guide in Nepal, Pratikshya, and the drivers who supported her, all did such a fabulous job of showing us their country. The team were great with not only helping us plan the itinerary, but also making a whole lot of last-minute changes when things didn't go to plan. We were able to quickly and easily discuss things with Pratikshya and make the necessary changes. They also set us up with Wind Horse Tours in Bhutan to spend some time there, and both companies made everything just so easy for us.

The Kimkim platform made it so easy to research and discuss what we wanted to do and communicating with Amanda and the team was so straightforward.

Highlights of the trip - definitely seeing a tiger in Bardia National Park, hiking Tiger's Nest, and spending some time in local communities in Panauti and Kirtipur to see what everyday life is like for Nepali people.

Hotel Reviews
Tiger Tops Karnarli Lodge

This was an amazing place to stay and really added to the experience of visiting the park. BC and his team were so thorough and professional, but very welcoming at the same time. The cool towels and drinks were really well received every time they were offered. I loved the sustainable approach to running the lodge and the safari guides and drivers (we had Krishna and Ramsingh) were just so good at their jobs. They found us two tigers and so many birds! They There were also a lot of people behind the scenes who I don't know the names of, from the gate guards to the nightwatchmen, the cleaners and the cooks, who all help make this such a special place. Thanks you so much for everything

Beautiful rooms in the style of the Tharu longhouses as well as the communal areas, all beautifully taken care of.

Right next to the National Park and a short but nice trip through the local villages to get to the park entrance
