Everest Base Camp Trek, Start Trekking from Salleri and back to Salleri

If you are planning to prepare to trek Everest Base Camp by yourself, then this article would help you to get a picture of where you can start your trek. I have read through many articles & videos and found the best route for trekking.

Generally people all over the world will reach Kathmandu and then take a flight to Lukla and start the trek to Everest base camp from Lukla.

In case you are not willing to take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, there are other places to start your trek. And Salleri is one of the place to start your EBC trek.

In my case, I’m planning to do this trek from Bangalore and I want this trek to be budget friendly for me. So I’m planning to take a train from Bangalore to Raxaul, then an auto or walk to Birgunj Bus Park, then take a bus from Birgunj Bus Park to Kathmandu and then take a cab from Kathmandu to Salleri (Chabahil Chowk is the place where you can get cab). And from Salleri, start the trek towards Everest base camp.

Route:

Salleri -> Numthala -> Puiya -> Phakding -> Namche bazaar -> Deboche -> Dingboche -> Lobuche -> Gorakshep -> EBC -> Kalapatthar -> Dughla -> Dingboche -> Deboche -> Namche -> Phakding -> Puiya -> Nunthala -> Salleri

Salleri to Everest Base Camp and then back to Salleri is about 200 KM, which can be done in 22 - 24 days.

Salleri -> Nunthala

  • Salleri altitude (2362 m / 7749 feet) and Numthala altitude (1823 m / 5980 feet)
  • Trek distance is around 20 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 8 - 10 hrs.
  • You come across two places between these, Ringmu (3,660 mtr / 12007 feet) and Taksindu (3071 mtr / 10075 feet).
  • If you can’t trek to Nunthala, then I suggest you stay at Ringmu and Start your trek later in the day from Ringmu.

Nunthala -> Puiya

  • Nunthala altitude (1823 mtr / 5,980 ft) and Puiya altitude (2730 mtr / 8956 ft)
  • Trek distance is around 18 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 10 - 12 hrs.
  • You come across a place between these called Khari Khola, a beautiful place, the landscape is very nice and you tend to stay for a while here.
  • You can stay at Khari Khola, if you love the landscape here.

Puiya -> Phakding

  • Puiya altitude (2730 mtr / 8956 ft) and Phakding altitude (2652 mtr / 8700 ft)
  • Trek distance is around 15 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 8 - 10 hrs.
  • You come across Surke and Chablung, where you can take a break.

Phakding -> Namche bazaar

  • Phakding altitude (2652 mtr / 8700 ft) and Namche Bazaar altitude (3440 mtr / 11286 ft).
  • Trek distance is around 10 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 6 - 8 hrs.
  • You will cross Monjo, where there are two check posts, where you need to buy permits for the Everest Base Camp trek.

Namche bazaar

  • Stay at Namche bazaar for a day or two, based on your condition.
  • Try to do a small trek towards up and come back by afternoon. This will help you to acclimatize better.
  • And this is the last place where you find all needed stuff and from here on just be careful about your health oxygen levels every day on the trek.

Namche -> Deboche

  • Namche Bazaar altitude (3440 mtr / 11286 ft) and Deboche altitude (3745 mtr / 12286 ft).
  • Trek distance is around 11 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 8 - 10 hrs.
  • You will be crossing Tengboche at 12696 ft.

Deboche -> Dingboche

  • Deboche altitude (3745 mtr / 12286 ft) and Dingboche altitude (4360 m/ 14,304 ft).
  • Trek distance is around 9 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 6 - 8 hrs.
  • You will be crossing Pangboche.

Dingboche

  • Take a acclimatization break at Dingboche. Try to do a small trek towards up and come back by afternoon.

Dingboche -> Lobuche

  • Dingboche altitude (4360 m/ 14,304 ft) and Lobuche altitude (4938 mtr / 16200 ft).
  • Trek distance is around 8 KM. Ideally you can do this trek in 6 - 7 hrs.
  • You will be crossing Dughla (4,620 mtr / 15157 ft)

Lobuche -> Gorak Shep -> Everest Base Camp -> Gorak Shep

  • Lobuche altitude (4938 mtr / 16200 ft) and Gorak Shep altitude (5160 mtr / 16929 ft)
  • It's around 4 KM from Lobuche to Gorak Shep, it would take 2 - 3 hrs. At the same time, trek to the Everest base camp (5364 mtr / 17594 ft), and come back to Goral Shep, up and down is around 8 KM, it would take 6 - 7 hrs.
  • Stay at Gorak Shep overnight, In the whole trek this is the only place you need to buy water.

Gorak Shep -> Kala Patthar -> Dughla

  • Gorak Shep altitude (5160 mtr / 16929 ft) and Dughla altitude (4,620 mtr / 15157 ft).
  • Up and down trek from Gorak Shep to Kala Pattar is around 4 KM, it would take 2 - 3 hrs. And continue your trek towards Dughla, which is around 6 KM, it would take 4 - 5 hrs.
  • Take rest over here or you can continue your trek towards Dingboche.

Dingboche -> Deboche -> Namche -> Phakding

  • Total distance is around 30 KM, Since you’ll be losing altitude you can take one break in any place between these places.
  • Here’s the places in the flow: Dingboche, then Pangboche, then Deboche, then Tengboche, then Namche, then Monjo and then Phakding.
  • I suggest you stay at Tengboche, which is 23 KM from Dingboche.

Phakding -> Puiya -> Nunthala -> Salleri

  • Follow the same route and same stay points. 
  • First it will be a 15 KM trek to Puiya, next it will be a 18 KM trek to Nuntala and then 20 KM trek Salleri.

Here ends your trek from Salleri to Salleri.

Below are the few tips on food, water and shelter on the trek.

  1. Almost all the tea houses after Namche have accommodation facilities.
  2. All the tea houses have the same rent after Namche.
  3. Water can be collected from the river or water flows and the only place you need to buy water is at Gorak shep.

Another important thing for this trek is, you need to be healthy enough for doing this trek. And here’s the article which helps you to understand what you need to pack on this trek.

To conclude, you might have a clear picture of the trek from Salleri to Salleri. Thanks for reading the article, for more travel related articles read our people blog articles.
