Before joining the usual trekking trail at Phakding, you shall have the trail all by yourself. In addition to that, you can get better acclimatized for trekking at the higher altitude as you take a longer route in this less traveled trekking route to the Everest Base Camp, the beacon of adventure. Besides the picturesque landscape, unique blend of Hindu and Buddhist culture at the lower altitude, usual highlight of lofty Himalayas and diverse landscape are additional benefits to the trekkers. Filled with Gumba, monasteries, prayer wheels and temples, trekking around in this trail is fun. Adventure climaxes at the base of mightiest Everest and at Kalapatthar where you feel it worth undertaking this Everest Base Camp Trek from Salleri.

Intermittently, you shall trek past cool shades of forest, traditional styled houses, stupas and temples and observe unique lifestyle of locals inhabiting en route. From here on number of fellow trekkers shall increase as you progress ahead to the higher altitudes. Navigate past culturally rich Sherpa villages, cross suspension bridges festooned with Buddhist prayer flags and walk on ups and downs of the trail to reach Sherpa hub of Namche Bazaar. Navigate through lush rhododendron forests, explore the ancient monasteries at Tengboche and Dingboche, and walk on the lateral moraines of Khumbu glacier before reaching to Everest Base Camp. Climb to Kalapatthar for close up view of Everest and other Himalayan peaks before trekking back to Lukla via Phakding, accompanied by the perennial Dudh Koshi River.
