One of the best aspects of taking this route to is; it makes you physically much fitter and keeps well acclimatized before heading to Everest Base Camp without taking Lukla flight. Many trekkers are hit by altitude sickness when they begin the trek straight from Lukla. Not only this; this route provides chances one to observe the fascinating rural daily life in each village you pass through. Families grow their own vegetables, livestock and run the tea houses. 3 High Pass Trek

Anything else they need is transported from other villages via mule or porter. Another great thing is; this route is less trekked, so this trail calm and quiet than upper Khumbu that so crowded often. As this trail is newly introduced very few trekkers have explored this route, which is newly proposed. Trek to Everest Base Camp via Salleri offers you the fresh route, and you do not have to fly to Lukla, rather the drive by a private vehicle takes you to Salleri, which is also the district headquarter of the Solukhumbu. It is incredible to trek in this unusual trail to Everest Base Camp.

Choices in reaching to Lukla from Kathmandu.
Yet there is no road access to Lukla; possibly soon within few years the state government will build the road. But there is comparatively good road access to Salleri; the road to Salleri from Kathmandu is pretty good and black on top. Dirt road further to Ringmo and Nunthala village is accessed as of our last trekking update but jeep is not readily available all the time.
Ride local bus to Jiri or Shivalaya (10-11 hours) and Walk 5-7 days. Jiri and Shivalaya is further along from Phaplu, same route plus 2-3 days.
Sharing Jeep and local bus to Salleri or Phaplu (2,413m, 10-12 hours) and trek 3-4 days. Jeep, private or shared to Phaplu or Jiri. Faster than the bus, walk 3-4 days.
Fly to Phaplu (2,413m) then trek 3-4 days to Lukla.
Fly to Lukla, is by far the easiest, quickest and possibly cheapest way to go when you take into account the extra money you’ll spend while trekking.
