About Trip

Salleri Everest Base Camp trekking is not new route but it is new access to Everest region trekking. Salleri is the administrative centre for Everest region, which falls in the Eastern Nepal. And while trekking to Everest Base camp via Jiri the Salleri is nearby from Ringmo (3 hrs walk).Before road connection to Salleri from Kathmandu, Phaplu -Everest Base Camp trekking was possible only by flying to Phaplu somehow the weather uncertainty always made this trek unreliable. And now the alternatives of flying to Phaplu and Lukla have been possible with the opening of the direct road connection to Salleri a district headquarter of Solukhumbu. Salleri is located 20 minutes on foot distance from Phaplu.The direct jeep riding of 9/10 hours connects you to Salleri from Kathmandu and the trek starts from Salleri and ends at Lukla or vice versa. If you start trekking at Lukla and ends at Salleri/ Phaplu so that to minimize the risk of bad weather to miss your international flight, for that you have to trek another 3 days down to Salleri and catch a jeep to Kathmandu.

Everest base camp trekking is very famous for all adventure trekkers and nature lovers but not everybody is making this trip due to altitude sickness or expensive airfare to Lukla and bad weather at Lukla,each year around the peak season the weather gets sudden change and many trekkers divert to other trekking routes. So Salleri-Phaplu Everest base camp trekking route has been a good alternative of direct flying to Lukla.So by taking a jeep ride to Salleri from Kathmandu facilitated to the trekkers to continue the long planned Everest base Camp and Everest region trekking with less worry. This route gives you sufficient time for acclimatization in one hand and it saves some money on other hands as you have to pay quite less for jeep transportation than flights. You can use public and reserve jeep to and from Salleri. Around 90% of the road is black topped, it is comfortable travelling. The jeep ride to salleri from Kathmandu offers scenic views of beautiful landscape and See the majestic Mt. Everest from Pattale village. Pattale is a view point located at the height of 3200m which is approximately 1.5 hours before Salleri.

Hence Everest base camp trekking from Salleri provides ample of time to get acclimatized and to observe the different ethnic group of peoples and local flora and Fauna along the way to Everest base camp. The trail connects at Ringmo first day of trekking from Salleri joins the route of Jiri Everest Base Camp trekking. And it follows the same trail all the way up and at Chheplung on fourth day of trekking meets the trail that comes from Lukla. And in case of possible long days of bad weather at Lukla after Base camp trekking you might trek down to Salleri and the trail is mostly downhill from Lukla with some uphill and at the haste it is possible to get to Salleri in 2 days (if you are lucky enough you can get ride on Jeep at Ringmo to Salleri).
