Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek

Salleri to Everest base camp trek

Planning to do the Everest Base Camp Trek? Alternative to flying to Lukla better to decide to start the trek from Salleri, the bus or jeep are departure daily from Kathmandu. The trek from Salleri to Everest Base Camp only few trekkers have explored this route, which is introduced recently after motor road construction. The road makes easy and shortest access to enter the Everest region means before Salleri road construction we need to follow the trek from Jiri bazaar (old transitional route) for the Mount Everest Base Camp trek those who preferred  to go trek starting point by overland which is required long holidays but Salleri route make bit short. Driving distance from Kathmandu to Salleri is quite long but really unique experience exploring countryside.

You don’t have to worry about flight delay, weather changes and landing in the scary Lukla airport. The traditional lifestyles and hospitality of local people will be some experience for you. If you are thinking how to reach Lukla by bus from Kathmandu then it is not possible. If you are seeking alternative to fly to Lukla then you need to choose overland journey to Salleri, the district headquarter of the Solukhumbu. The Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trekking is includes untouched trail, Sherpa valleys, unique landscape, Himalayan views and the scenarios of flora and fauna.
