Kathmandu to Salleri there is a daily bus and jeep services it takes about 8 to 9 hours overland journey. The Salleri to Everest Base Camp is recently introduced after motor road construction. The road makes easy and shortest access to enter the Everest region means before Salleri road construction we need to follow the trek from Jiri bazaar for Mount Everest Base Camp trek. The Salleri trek route makes Everest base camp trek a bit shorter. Driving distance from Kathmandu to Salleri is quite long (266 km) but really unique experience to explore the countryside.

A physical training should be undertaken at least 3 months in advance to prepare.
