Phaplu is a beautiful village with an airport facility inhibited by peoples belonging to different caste and races and following different cultures and traditions. Trail follows the usual trail of the Everest base camp exploring through the steep sided valleys, huge glaciers, hedgerows and trees bursting into bloom, with Rhododendrons, adding a spectacular splash of color to the landscape, lush valley, beautiful villages with its people working in the field and their cattle grazing in the meadows, famous monasteries, and stunning scenery along with the spectacular view of the world high peaks up to Base Camp of Mt Everest at (5,357m).
