Overview And Highlights

"Embark on the ultimate adventure from Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trekking. Traverse rugged trails, witness breathtaking landscapes, and experience the thrill of reaching the iconic Everest Base Camp. Unravel the beauty of the Himalayas with our expert guides. Book your journey now!"

Phaplu salleri to Everest Base Camp Trekking is a 13-day trek that sees you stepping on a trail once trekked by Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. Further, it's a mixed style; you first take a drive, trek to the base camp from Bupsa, trek down to Lukla, and take Lukla to Ramechhap to end the trek. The beautiful aspect of the Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek by road is that it takes only a day more than flying to Lukla. However, by doing so, you'll see beautiful Sherpa villages of the lower Everest region, acclimate well from the lowlands, and avoid frequent flight delays/cancellations at Lukla.

Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trekking- Highlights
 

  • Scenic and comfortable 4wd jeep drive to Bupsa from Kathmandu via Salleri.
  • Start the trek from lower Solukhumbu through beautiful villages like Bupsa, Paiya, Chheubas, Surke, and Chaurikharka.
  • Avoid the scary flight landing at the world's most difficult Lukla airport.
  • Best itinerary that helps you acclimate well after starting the trip with a drive and trek from the lower region.
  • Trek along beautiful Sherpa villages and experience their culture, traditions, and lifestyles.
  • Visit Hotel Everest View, Tengboche Monastery, Sherpa Museum, Nangkartshang Peak, and Thugla Memorial.
  • Trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar for a better panorama of Everest and other beautiful mountains in the region.
  • The entire on-board trek, guided by a licensed trekking guide from Adventure Nepal Eco Treks, with utmost safety, logistics, and handpicked itineraries.

We've detailed some of the benefits you can get while starting the trek via road instead of taking the flight to Lukla. 

Avoid flight cancellations during the post and pre-monsoon rain

The best time to plan Everest Base Camp Trek by road is September and May.

September being a post-summer month, almost every region of Nepal experiences medium to heavy rainfall. This change in weather by rain affects Lukla's weather so severely that all Kathmandu-Lukla flights were canceled for nearly a week.

May is the pre-summer month that experiences frequent rainfall. Even being the end of spring, the change in weather patterns during this month affects the flight takeoff and landing at Lukla.

Hence, it's better to plan to start Everest Base Camp Trek by road to avoid uncertain flight cancellations and delays. With a road trip and trek, you'll complete this trek on time.

Avoid the scary landing at Lukla airport

Everyone must take Kathmandu to Lukla flight to start every Everest region trek. Also, everyone knows that Lukla Airport is one of the scariest airports in the world.

Mainly, landings at this airport are riskier than takeoff. Due to its short runway, the landing flights have no option but to land right and hit the brake. And if they fail to do so, it often leads to catastrophe. In the past, Lukla had several occasions of such fatalities.

If you're scared of landing at Lukla but still want to trek to Everest Base Camp, join our 13-day Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp Trek by road. We provide you with a private vehicle (Scorpio, Jeep, or any 4WD vehicle) that offers more comfort than the flights to Lukla. Moreover, you'll get an unforgettable off-road experience past Salleri to Bupsa before trekking to Phakding and Namche.

Another benefit of avoiding the flight to Lukla is that you'll save several hundred dollars on a flight ticket. With a road trip, your ground transport cost lowers, ultimately reducing the overall trek cost.

Idea itinerary for proper acclimatization

Most Everest Base Camp Trekkers experience altitude sickness at Dingboche and Lobuche. As a result, they return to Lukla and Kathmandu. Lack of acclimatization and flight to Lukla is the leading cause of this issue.

Remember, it's the trip of your lifetime, and you want to avoid getting altitude sickness. After planning and paying a hefty fee, you must reach the base camp. The most guaranteed trek that can take you to Everest's base camp is Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek via road.

Everest Base Camp Trek via road starts from Kathmandu at 1300 meters to Bupsa at 2,350 meters. And you'll reach Bupsa within a nearly 14 hour drive. While getting here, you'll get Salleri, which is at 2,470 meters. Also, you'll drive down to altitudes of 2,000 meters to places like Andherikhola.

During this ride, your body gets well-acclimated to the lower altitudes of the Everest region. It prevents you from the risk of getting altitude sickness if flying to Lukla from Kathmandu, escaping 1500 meters altitude difference.

With the trek from the lower region, your body gets well acclimatized, and with two more stops at Namche and Dingboche, you'll overcome the altitude sickness 100%. And at the end, you'll conquer Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, which rewards you with the beautiful mountain panorama of the world's highest mountains.

A junket to the heaven of mountains

Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek is ideal for Orophiles as they trek into the heaven of the world's highest mountains. Everest region is the home to some 8,000 meters and several beautiful 6,000 and 7,000-meter-tall peaks.

Upon starting this trek from Salleri and Phaplu, you'll get a panoramic glimpse of Mt. Numbur, a 6,958-meter-tall glacial mountain. You'll also see several beautiful peaks of the Rolwaling range from Phaplu.

Once you start trekking from Bupsa, you'll get a first significant glimpse of Kongde Ri. However, Everest becomes visible only from Namche.

On the acclimatization day at Namche, you'll see Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Tawoche, and Thamserku. Moreover, you'll see mountains like Island Peak, Cholatse, and Makalu during acclimatization at Dingboche.

Once you step into Lobuche, you'll be surrounded by mountains from all sides. Lobuche Peak, Pumori, Baruntse, Nuptse, and other mountains become visible from Lobuche. From Kala Patthar, you'll get an unobstructed glimpse of Mt. Everest alongside the complete face of Nuptse and the summit face of Lhotse.

Your eyes never tire of seeing these beautiful mountains all day. With beautiful weather past mid-autumn and spring, your sightseeing experience becomes one of a kind.

The Everest Base Camp trek from Phaplu typically takes around 12-14 days, depending on your pace and itinerary. This route is longer compared to the more commonly used Lukla route, but it offers a quieter and less crowded trekking experience, with the added bonus of acclimatization to the altitude along the way.

While it's technically possible to complete the Everest Base Camp trek in 10 days from Kathmandu, it's not recommended for several reasons:

Acclimatization: Adequate acclimatization is crucial when trekking to high altitudes like Everest Base Camp to prevent altitude sickness. Rushing the trek increases the risk of altitude-related health issues.

Physical demands: The trek to Everest Base Camp involves long days of hiking, often over rough terrain and at high altitudes. Trying to cover the distance in a shorter time frame can be physically demanding and increase the risk of injuries.

Enjoyment: Rushing through the trek means you won't have as much time to enjoy the stunning scenery, interact with local communities, and fully immerse yourself in the experience.

Typically, most trekkers take around 12-14 days to complete the Everest Base Camp trek from Kathmandu, allowing for proper acclimatization and an enjoyable experience. If you're short on time, you might consider alternative routes or shorter treks in the Everest region that can be completed in 10 days or less.
 

Hikers don't typically spend two weeks at Everest Base Camp itself. Rather, the 12-14 day duration often mentioned refers to the entire trekking journey, which includes reaching Everest Base Camp, spending time acclimatizing at various points along the route, and then returning to the starting point.

Here are some reasons why the Everest Base Camp trek usually takes around two weeks:

Acclimatization: Spending time acclimatizing to the high altitude is crucial to prevent altitude sickness. The trek includes several rest days at strategic points to allow the body to adjust to the decreasing oxygen levels.

Safety: Trekking at high altitudes poses risks, and having rest days built into the itinerary helps reduce the chances of altitude-related illnesses such as acute mountain sickness (AMS).

Enjoyment: The trek isn't just about reaching Everest Base Camp; it's also about enjoying the breathtaking scenery, experiencing the local culture, and immersing oneself in the Himalayan environment. Taking time to appreciate these aspects enriches the overall experience.

Logistics: The trek involves covering a considerable distance, often over challenging terrain. It takes time to navigate the trails safely and comfortably, especially considering the varying weather conditions and trail conditions.

Overall, the two-week duration allows for a more comfortable, safe, and enjoyable trekking experience to Everest Base Camp.
 

Yes, it is possible to see Mount Everest from Phaplu, although the view may not be as clear or as close as from some other vantage points along the Everest Base Camp trekking route. Phaplu is situated in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal, which is in the general vicinity of the Everest region. On clear days, you may catch glimpses of Everest and other surrounding peaks from Phaplu, providing a tantalizing preview of the majestic scenery to come on your trek. However, for the most iconic views of Everest, trekkers typically continue on to higher elevations along the trekking route, such as Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, and ultimately Everest Base Camp itself.
