Salleri to Everest Trek is a relatively new route to urge into Everest that mixes natural and cultural wonders. The trek starts after a long drive to Salleri, a lower elevation, and gains elevation by gradually making it easier to acclimatize. Ranging from Salleri, the route passes through the Sherpa villages of the Solukhumbu, many of which have beautiful Buddhist monasteries. The villages of Sherpa and Rai provide a view into local lives and customs. Above Namche, the trek also gives an insight into the culture of the local Sherpa people. The scene of the sunrise on the snowcapped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kalapatthar. The Everest Base Camp trek requires fitness because it demands some challenging climbs on the trail. Our itinerary will help to make sure of preferred acclimatization before reaching Everest Base Camp. Tons of trails have well-graded paths. However, there are difficult sections along the Khumbu glacier where utmost care is required.
