Phaplu Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp

Itinerary

The Phaplu to Everest Base Camp is 20 Days program with your arrival and departure days. A cultural day tour in Kathmandu and an extra buffer/extra day at the end of the trek are also included in the 20-day itinerary of the Phaplu- Everest Base Camp Trek. The extra buffer day is used if you need any extra day on the trek or if there is any delay or cancelation on return flight from Lukla, which happens sometimes due to the bad weather conditions.

There are flight options available from Kathmandu to Phaplu occasionally as there is no scheduled flight like at Lukla Airport. There is also a drive option from Kathmandu to Phaplu and the Phaplu route follows the classic route of Jiri from Nunthala, So, this is the best alternative to Jiri EBC Trek and regular Everest Base Camp Trek from Lukla if you want to avoid the Lukla flight.

We have included one day drive to Phaplu and a return flight from Lukla to Kathmandu at the end. However, if want to end the trek in Phaplu and take a both-way drive also available at Outfitter Himalaya.

The offered 20-day itinerary is a guideline itinerary, and we also offer a tailor-made program if the offered one is not suitable for you. Let us know our days and requirement for your program.
