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 in Everest, the journey presents a gorgeous new setting 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 characters of an Everest trek with the best services. Correspondingly, you can also try our Everest Base Camp Trek via Lukla as well.

Reviews

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
