Trekking from Sallery to Everest Base Camp

Trekking from Sallery to Everest base camp is the best way to visit Everest base camp which is a short way to go Everest Base camp by road. Nowadays, driving to Sallery and trek to base camp is a very famous option because of Lukla weather it is not a safe flight. Lukla flight is depending on weather so they lose time to wait for the flight that is why Asian Hiking Team recommend starting trekking from Sallery and ending your trek in Lukla.

Every trekker who plans to visit Nepal, their first goal is to see Mt Everest and walk into the father of Everest. To visit Everest you need a flight to Lukla or drive to Jiri “the old trekking route” or drive to Sallery and trek to Khumbu valley. Everest trek is one of the well-known treks in Nepal.

A one full day drive from Kathmandu you can reach Sallery (265km). The road is narrow but nice and it takes 8-10 hours’ drive by Jeep. You need to stay one overnight in Sallery and start your base camp trekking the next day. From Sallery trek to Nunthala, Kharikhola, Paiya, Surkhe and Lukla. You do not need to go Lukla, the path catches you in Choplung and continues trek to Phakding. After Phakding Namche Bazaar, you need to one day rest for acclimatization and visit around then after heading to the upper part of Khumbu Tyangboche, Dingboche, Lobuje, Gorep-shep and Everest Base camp. Upon reaching base camp of Everest and visiting Kalapather, the Asian Hiking Team itinerary mentions return the same way to Lukla than flight to Kathmandu.
