Solu valley trek is one of the moderated and easiest treks which can be done by any age of the group.  There are normally two valleys in Solu Khumbu, the upper valley is known as Khumbu like Namche, Khumjung, Khunde, and Porste are all known by Khumbu and the lower valley is known as Solu like Phaplu, Sallery, Junbeshi, Thaktor, Ringmo, Thakshindu, and Thubtencholing are all known as Solu. so, in combination, it is called Solu Khumbu. Solu is known as shorung in the Sherpa language.

Solu valley Trek is totally quite different than other parts of Nepal trek and it is suitable for trekkers who love hiking the lower parts of Sherpa valley with its rich culture and with full of rhododendron forests with lower elevations.  Experience the ultimate in comfort trek in the highest national park in the world, Meet the Sherpa people, whose culture defines the region as much as its legendary peaks. Visit alpine monasteries and heady Kathmandu encountering Nepal in all its contrasts. Earlier this trek commences from Jiri but because of good facilities of road and transportation, now this classic trek commences from Phaplu with both facilities of air and road too. if you go by air, then the flight takes about 25 minutes to get to Phaplu. but by road, it takes about 12 to 13 hours to get there. but due to the condition of the road, we suggest you to prefer by air rather than by road. This comfortable trek to the Solu is an immersion in the traditional Sherpa homeland.

The trail passes through the most beautiful settlements of the Sherpa and Rai ethnic communities’ settlement in the region. You can visit ancient Buddhist monasteries such as Thupten Chholing Gompa and enjoy with unique Sherpa and Rai ethnic peoples’ culture, lifestyle, and picturesque landscapes.
