Solu Khumbu towards gate way of Everest (Namche Bazar)


Solu Khumbu towards gate way of Everest (Namche Bazar)

Overview

Solu Khumbu or Jiri to Namche Bazar trek follows the original route into the Solu-Khumbu region used by the early explores of Everest. The trail begins at an altitude of 1800m and crosses numerous ridges: dropping low to rivers at around 1500m and ascending passes over 3000m. A new road allows buses to continue beyond Jiri where the trek now begins. The Sherpa people, formerly from Tibet, live chiefly in the Solu region along the Dudh Kosi River and the Khumbu region above Lukla. This Jiri to Namche Bazar route is still used by porters and pack animals.

In the first week, the trail passes through beautifully terraced farmlands, forests and classic middle-hill countryside. It offers simple amenities and ample time to acclimatize while encountering the culture, customs and life style of the friendly and hospitable Hindu and Buddhist communities. The low-traffic lower section of the classic Everest trek runs through the lush green foothills of the Solu Khumbu, yet has everything to offer the region around the highest mountain in the world. Great scenery, snow-capped peaks, beautiful panoramas and of course the traditional Sherpas culture all around. An absolute insider tip is the unique 360 ​​° view from Pikey Peak (4067m). A spectacular Himalayas flight provides a last view of the mountains and takes you from Lukla back to fascinating Kathmandu with its cultural and religious diversity.
