    Default bus to Shivalaya? or walk from Jiri?

    Hi. I was planning to get the bus all the way to Shivalaya to start the EBC/Gokyo trek next week. However , doing a bit of research it looks like the Shivalaya to Jiri section is pretty bumpy and uncomfortable. Also potentially muddy after the recent precipitation.

    Any views on the best option?

    If we got the early bus to Jiri, would we have time to walk that same day to Shivalaya.. or would it mean an extra day?

    Many thanks

    Bus ride Jiri - Shivalya is OK if you are young & enjoy up to 4 hours of roller coaster :-). The walk along the old route is 3 - 5 hours and a nice start to the trek. I would advise to walk if you are in Jiri before 12:00 - 13:00.

    The Jiri-Shivalaya section is a nice introduction to the main trek and personally I would not take the bus. There are lodges at various places between Jiri and Shivalaya ( can't remember exactly but one place maybe called Mali? ) and if you get to Jiri with a few hours of daylight left, I would head out and get trekking!
