Most people fly into Lukla to start the trek to Everest Base Camp or Gokyo, but as long as you have enough time Nepal Trekking Experts highly recommend you to embark from Phaplu which will assist you to be much fitter and better acclimatize. The Everest Base Camp Trek via Phaplu will start with a long public bus/Jeep ride from Kathmandu or private car/jeep. Although the trail heads from Phaplu into Sagarmatha National Park is referred to as the classic route to Everest, the original trailhead began at Kathmandu. All early Everest expeditions including Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary on the summit passed through this trail. So it is also called the Gateway of the Mt. Everest. The trail to Lukla passes through classic Middle Hills country that is blissfully free from the crowds that mob the trails further north.
Even though the Everest Base Camp trek via Phaplu begins at just 2469m, it climbs to 3530m at the Lamjura Bhanjyang, and drops as low as 1500m at the Dudh koshi crossing east of Nunthala. The best opportunities will be exploring lush vegetation, different shorts of crops, terrace, high passes such as Deaurali pas, Lamjura Pass, Taksindu Pass and more. Once you reach Lukla, you might feel completely different specially because of traffic and vegetation. If you love peace, local settlement and more greenery than you will have great time in between Phaplu to Lukla.
