Lukla: Lukla is the most common starting point for the Everest Base Camp Trek. It is a small town in the Khumbu region of Nepal and serves as the gateway to the trek. Most trekkers fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and begin their trek from there.

Jiri: While Lukla has become the primary starting point for the Everest Base Camp Trek, some trekkers choose to start from Jiri. Jiri is a town located in the eastern part of Nepal, and the trek from Jiri adds an extra week or so to the overall duration. It is often chosen by trekkers seeking a longer and more gradual approach to acclimatization. And also because this was the route followed by Tenzing Norge Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary during the submit to the Everest peak.

Phaplu: Phaplu is another alternative starting point for the Everest Base Camp Trek. It is a village located in the Solu region of Nepal and offers a less crowded and more off-the-beaten-path experience compared to Lukla. This itinerary allows for gradual acclimatization and takes into account the additional days required to reach Namche Bazaar from Phaplu, they join the main Everest Base Camp trail at a later stage.

Activity's Location

Why trek Everest Base Camp trekking without a flight?
Flight to Lukla is to fly remote area and altitude land. Flights are operating only from Kathmandu. Only tiny aircraft fit a maximum of 16 peoples at a time. 35 minutes’ flight operate morning time before Lukla gets windy and cloudy. Since Lukla is in the mountain area, flying there is through the narrow valley has a high chance to canceled during bad weather. For this reason, your original plan might disturb you. Another reason to select trek without flight is to explore the lower part of the Everest region which is untouched landscape and cultural settlement.
