The Everest Base Camp trek without a flight to Lukla is an alternative route for adventurers seeking a more challenging and scenic journey to the base of the world’s highest peak. The trek is designed for trekkers seeking to avoid flight to one of the world’s most dangerous airports. 

Trek to Everest

This trail typically starts with a picturesque drive from Kathmandu to Jiri or Salleri, leading to the lower sections of the traditional trekking route, allowing trekkers to gradually acclimatize while enjoying the region’s stunning landscapes and cultural experiences. The trek starts from the small mid-hill town of Salleri, which offers a more gradual and scenic approach to the Everest Base Camp.

The trek is perfect for trekkers who are more into the cultural trek and want to avoid the unnecessary airport hassles that have been frequent during peak tourist season. Adding a few days to the trek will give you the best Everest experience, and currently, this is one of the recommended treks from our recent guests.
