Lower Solu Trek
If you're looking for a short trek in the Lower Solukhumbu near Kathmandu, Lower Solu Trek is a great (less discovered) route. If you're feeling very fit or are just short on time, this can be done in 5-6 days. But, a more leisurely 10-day trek allows for a physical workout without the stress, and a chance to visit a number of Buddhist sites (monasteries, gompas, and stupas). Both itineraries provide amazing views of the Numbur Himal range and Everest. But is it the best view of Everest in Nepal? You'll have to see for yourself.
Note: If you're short on time or want to opt for a shorter itinerary, it's best to fly both in and out of Phaplu, the starting point for the trek. If you have more time or want to save on costs, you can drive to Phaplu by jeep . It's a very scenic drive that takes around 7 hours but be warned that driving is the most 'adventurous' option: roads in Nepal are not well-maintained can be quite bumpy and services will be limited along the way. (There's not a significant difference in time traveling via public or private transport, it's more the comfort level.)
