Trekking to Everest region is more a pilgrimage than a trek, it passes deep into Buddhist Sherpa country, among some of the world’s most sublime peaks. From the alarming airstrip at Lukla, the trail leads north into mountainous Khumbu, the dizzyingly high Sherpa homeland such as Namche Bazaar and Khumjung . One route leads to Everest Base Camp and the viewpoint of Kala Pattar; the other for the beautiful Gokyo Lakes. Both high points are about eight days from Lukla, and can be combined by crossing the high pass of the Cho La. Hike from the roadhead at Jiri through Solu offers the lower, greener, more populous and more ethnically diverse country to the south. It’s a stunning route, and offers a great way to acclimatize. Also now there is transportation to Salleri(Headquarter of Solukhumbu district) which is 2-3 days trek to Lukla. Lower Everest region offers beautiful places such as Dudhkunda Pikey routes.
