Everest Base Camp Trek from Salleri is the finest alternative trek to experience the classical Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp. This trek takes you to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar and yields astonishing Mt. Everest, Loatse, Choyou, Pumori and Nupse. Previously, trekkers had to begin classical Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri since there was no road connection to Salleri from Kathmandu. They had to undertake a long journey passing through Shivalaya, Bhandar, Junbesi and many other local villages before Salleri. But nowadays people can easily get a jeep ride from Kathmandu to Salleri and can trek to Everest Base Camp passing through Ringmo, Kharikhola and Paiyan before we get to the main trail at Phakding. This trek is for those who want to escape one-way Lukla flight rejoicing the less crowded ancient villages and trail at least for a few days before we arrive at Phakding. Actually, the majority of the trekkers choose to go with the flight to Lukla from Kathmandu and the trails from Salleri to Phakding are still unspoiled. You will majestically enjoy the walk into unharmed wilderness.
Begin your Everest Base Camp Trek from Salleri after long hours of jeep ride from Kathmandu. We pass through a few traditional settlements including Ringmo, Kharikhola and Paiyan before we catch the main path to Everest Base Camp. During passing through these local villages, we will experience the most authentic local lifestyle and awe-inspiring landscapes. After Phakding , we follow the same trail to Everest Base Camp passing through Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche and Lobuche.
Observing Namche Bazaar and people’s activities around here marvel you. The modern shops, beauty salon, ATMS, luxury hotels, Sherpa Cultural Museum, Traditional Tibetan Market and luxury hotels and restaurants make you hardly believe that you are in the mountain on the way to Everest Base Camp. Further, Hotel Everest View dispenses the stupendous Mt. Everest and other Himalayan panoramas in Khumbu region. Celebrating the ecstatic walk through Sagarmatha National Park, holy Tengboche Monastery, Dongboche and Lobuche, you arrive at your final destinations: Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp from where you will imprison majestic Mt. Everest, Loatse, Choyou, Pumori and Nupse. Besides, the thrilling setting of the towering mountain panorama turns your Everest Base Camp Trek from Salleri memorable. On returning, we take a short domestic flight from Lukla to Kathmandu replacing a long drive.
It is hard to predict the weather of the Khumbu region, especially the weather of Lukla. Do not make your trip to Everest region during Summer (Jun-Aug) and Winter (Dec-Feb) because you may get heavy rain or snow on the trail which makes your entire trip unpleasant. Everest Base Camp Trek from Salleri is impossible during Summer because the jeep ride is not possible on the rough country road. Autumn ( Oct-Nov) is the most pleasant season of the year for this trek. Also, Spring( Mar-May) is equally magnjficent .
