DESCRIPTION

Best Time to Go: Anytime except for July-August Entry Point: Salleri/ Bus from Kathmandu Exit Point: Lukla/Flight to Kathmandu

Trail condition: This new experience is to start from the town of Salleri. The journey will take you through a rather challenging bus experience and boundless cultural and ecological confrontation.The route is well marked but the trail section between Nunthala - Chheplung is not maintained regularly which might put some stress on your knees.

Accommodation: During the trip you will stay in Sherpa lodges with great facilities and warm hospitality. Most of the lodges are equipped with WiFi, hot shower and extensive food menu. However, finding lodges during peak season (October) can be challenging if you don’t book in advance.

Risks: The trek is considered to be physically challenging due to AMS as you climb to an altitude above 5,000 m. However, your walk from Salleri will acclimatize your body gradually. Also, you will take a gradual climbing in a well built path to avoid the risk. And, you will take a rest day in Namche and Pheriche for further acclimatization.

Route Variations: It is possible to add a little variety to this trek by staying at Dingboche on your way up. Also, it is possible to avoid the flight out of Lukla and return the same way back to Salleri.

Notes: Please note that this is a self-guided trek. Hence, you can customize this trek to your preference. Feel free to add lodges, side trips and sightings to your liking.
