Description

This splendid Everest Base Camp Drive In Drive Out Trek , which follows the footsteps of the earliest climbers and trekkers, doesn’t have the internal flights. It is a perfect fit for those who want to avoid the famous Lukla flights. Since no flights are involved and a 4WD drive is taken, we don’t have to worry about the unexpected bad weather which usually hampers the Lukla flights. As we start the trek from lower altitude than Lukla and have many days before we reach Everest Base Camp, this trek is best from acclimatization standpoint.

We start the trip from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, in a 4WD. The 4WD goes through a paved road until Salleri which is for 8 to 9 hours of the total drive. Beyond Salleri, it is dirt road until the day’s destination of Jubing which takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach. It is the starting point of our trek and we begin our journey to Everest here. In this multi-day trek, we will pass through Namche Bazaar (the Sherpa capital), Tengboche Monastery (the largest in the region), Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep and finally reach Everest Base Camp. This is the closest we get to Mt Everest without mountaineering equipment. There is an optional hike to Kala Patthar, the highest point of the trek. And then it is a downward trek all the way to Jubing and a long ride to Kathmandu.

This trek is operated only in dry seasons from October 10 to December and from January to May. It is because the road from Salleri to Jubing isn’t paved and it gets affected by the monsoon rains, making the road impossible to pass by vehicles.
