The traditional path of the Everest Base camp Trek is either from Lukla by taking flight from Kathmandu or from Jiri by taking drive from Kathmandu to Jiri however there is another way to reach Everest Base camp from Phaplu. There is a airport in Phaplu as well and there are flights available on certain days of the week and now there is jeep/bus drive from Kathmandu to Phaplu so, we can start our trek in Everest Base camp from Phaplu as well.
The benefits of the trek from Phaplu are to see the green scenery as you can see the great scenery of rivers, valleys and terraces, if you would like to trek with lesser tourist on the trail then this trail is the best as only few trekkers takes this trail and trekking from Phaplu will have better acclimatization before trekking to the base camp and another attraction of the trail to see the daily lifestyle of the locals as we can see and experience local communities how they spend life in the mountain region in Nepal.
The Trekking from Phaplu starts after short flight from Kathmandu to Phaplu and gentle walk to Nunthala and trek to Namche Bazaar through Kharikhola, Bupsa dada, Surke, Phakding. We will have a day for the acclimatization in Namche and we follow the original trail of the Everest base camp and finally reach at Everest Base camp through Tengbuche, Dingbuche, Lobuche and Gorekshep then after visiting the base camp and climb the Kalapattar, we retrace back Lukla and take short flight to Kathmandu.
