Trip Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek via Salleri is a wonderful alternate route to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain peak. Quite suitable for trekkers looking for something new while trekking on Everest, the journey presents a gorgeous new set of isolated villages and far-off settlements that diverts away from the well-trodden path to the base camp via Lukla. It is a beautiful journey that lets you experience new areas of Everest that are otherwise unexplored.

At each turn of the trekking trail, you will get amazing views of the mountain peaks. Furthermore, combined with the ethnic Sherpa culture of the small villages situated at the crevasses of the river valleys, you will get an unforgettable experience! Explore the Takshindo Gompa and walk along narrow canyons while crossing gushing white rivers of the region. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of the pastures and the terrace farms located underneath the shadowing mountain peaks. It truly is a gorgeous trekking experience and a great alternate option to the Everest base camp!

Moreover, the Everest Base Camp Trek via Salleri also includes many amazing highlights and features of the Khumbu. In addition to the initial alternate route via Phaplu, the trekking journey finally converges with the regular trail at Phakding where you can go through the Sagarmatha National Park- a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The trekking journey is ornamented brilliantly with the Sherpa tenor, as the route is fastened with small chortens and Mani stone wall carved with Buddhist blessings and prayer flags. Blended together with the verdant trans-Himalayan landscape of the Khumbu, the trekking journey presents a peaceful setting where cultural villages and settlements are laid out picturesquely against the backdrop of the Sagarmatha Himalayas.

Similarly, the Everest Base Camp Trek via Salleri also includes major aspects of Khumbu as well, like visiting the vantage point of Kalapatthar from where you can see the entire panorama of the Everest massif spectacularly! Likewise, the trekking trail also includes visiting famous Himalayan towns and villages like Namche Bazaar and Tengboche, from where the views and sights of the majestic peaks are quite indelible. Pay a visit to the Everest View Hotel- the highest located hotel in the world and enjoy the dramatic scenery of the cerulean Himalayas from the balcony as you enjoy delicious better tea.

Relax at the dainty tea houses at Dingboche and enjoy the heavenly trekking journey as you make your way through destinations like Pheriche and Ringmo.

The Everest Base Camp Trek via Salleri is a memorable journey that you simply must do! Join Nepal Hiking Team for an adventure that perfectly combines the best characteristics of an Everest trek with the best services.

Correspondingly, you can also try our Everest Base Camp Trek via Lukla as well.
