Apart from taking a flight to lukla is to trek in from the road ahead at jiri. jiri can be reached by local bus from kathmandu in seven to ten hours. The trek from jiri to lukla takes an average of seven days and gives preparation for the Everest base camp trek. it is never flat as it crosses the grain of the land for the first five days . The highest point reached before Lukla is Lamjura La pass, which is at 3,530 meters above sea level. A highlight of the area around the Lamjura La is the magnificent display of pink and lilac rhododendrons in spring.
The trek passes through parts of Solukhumbu that are relatively underdeveloped compared with the northern part of the district around Namche Bazaar. This enables trekkers to experience many traditional aspects of the culture of the local people that are less easy to see above Lukla. The trail is well serviced, with trekking teahouses and good campsites in most of the settlements.
The portion of the trek from Jiri to Lukla is often quiet, and therefore much better trekking country. We cross the Lamjura La, and Thaksindo before descending toward the raging river of the Dudh Kosi. We follow the “Dudh Koshi river” north through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main Everest trail below Lukla.
