Simply the answer is Yes! There are two alternatives for Everest Base Camp Trek avoiding flight. Some people don't want to take Lukla flights as they are scared of Lukla airport. Lukla airport is the most dangerous airport in the world. As climate change is swift and the airport is on a cliff or a hill, some tourists want to avoid this flight. Everest Base camp By Phaplu will be the best option for that kind of people. EBC by phaplu is six days more than Everest Base camp Trek by Lukla. EBC via Phaplu is also the best option for bad weather season if we can skip Rain and flood sometimes. This is the most guaranteed trekking route for Lukla. Sometimes people need to return to the hotel more than a week from the airport due to bad weather or some flight issue, and they have limited time to get lost. This is the most guaranteed route if we try this route as we drive to phaplu and walk two days to reach Lukla.


What about cost?

Cost seems similar as Lukla flight cost covers 1st-day drive by private jeep and two days trek up to Lukla. Nowadays, This route is so popular; due to Traffic in Lukla, Flight problem, and Bad weather. As Lukla flight is not guaranteed, people do not want to waste their time going to the airport and returning to the hotel. This increases both your cost and time, so to avoid these, all Everest base camp Trek via phaplu is the best option.

The next option is Everest Base Camp Trek By Jiri; Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri is the original trail to reach Everest Base Camp, way back when there was no airport in Lukla. Many expedition teams use the route from Jiri to Everest Base Camp to reach the summit of the Himalayas; most notable in history include Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. We will be spending the first eight days trekking through beautiful villages, thundering rivers, ascending and descending the trail, and acclimatizing our bodies to reach Lukla and further. Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is nearly a month-long holiday in the Himalayas to explore the beauty of these silvering mountains. Combined with the Everest Base Camp Trek from Lukla, the Everest Base Camp trek from Jiri is ideal for spending about a month-long vacation in the Himalayas.
