It will be trekking on these trails. This trekking is possible to operate in any season. If anyone would like to walk back to Jiri and take a bus to Kathmandu it is also possible or keeps continues to Everest base camp as well.
Culturally, the Arun Trek is very interesting - moving from Sherpa through to Rai villages, then down to Chhetri and Brahmin villages. Despite the chain of basic lodges, impromptu lodgings can be found in keeping with traditional hospitality throughout Eastern Nepal. Only one village, probably Brahmin, insisted that I should continue on my way, and would provide me with no food or lodging - otherwise you will usually find helpful and generous people when you need them.
This Everest Base camp & Kalapathar trek based on for the well-experienced hikers and if this does not suit you then you can take alternatively as 20 days one fly in and fly out Lukla.
