Everest Base Camp Trekking Avoiding Lukla Flight

17 days


Are you worried about the adventure flight to Lukla but still have a dream to experience the world-renowned Everest Base Camp Trekking? Shiva Excursion brings good news to you. We organize EBC Trek avoiding flight schedule and take you to the Everest trekking via jeep drive to Salleri and hike to EBC.

Taking a jeep drive from Kathmandu to Salleri, the district center of Solukhumbu, the trek begins with an exploration of the green hill views and the Himalayas. It takes about 3-4 days to connect the main trail of EBC from Lukla. The trek avoids you any hassle from the flight delay and weather issue. Then it leads you all the way to Everest Base Camp via Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep. Exploration of the Sherpa capital, monasteries and experiencing the hospitality make you feel awesome. The dazzling scenery of the tallest peak of the world- Mt. Everest (8848 meters), Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and others, glaciers, lush woods, and wildlife are the spices of this hot deal trek to Everest.

Spring and autumn are the best seasons for the Everest base camp trek, however, we also operate the trek on your suitable time with a customized itinerary. Please, do not hesitate to contact Shiva Excursion for any info about the trek.

Note: there are various options available to reach Mt. Everest base camp by trekking. Via Everest three high passes, via Chola Pass Gokyo Lake, via Khongma La Pass only or the direct trek to EBC, please let us know which one if on your bucket list.

Our mission is to take you to EBC trek without taking flight. However, if you want to fly back to Kathmandu, we also organize it in the way that suits your schedule.
