Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri is a classic route which was followed by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa during their first summit of Everest in 1954 expedition’s history. Most trekkers on this venture to EBC through Jiri will surely like what they see of the landscapes on the way to EBC in comparison to the route via Lukla airport. This is a wonderful hike through natural settings laden with pretty villages & rich culture. This trip involves a lot of hiking that’s pretty moderate to challenging, but you’ll like this outdoor vacation that offers an assortment of features that begin from the moment we reach Jiri & hit the trails to Junbesi & onwards to Nunthala, Jorsalle & Namche.

The Everest region is home to some of the highest peaks on earth, but there’s much more to all this; the Sherpas who settled here hundreds of years ago shaped their out a way of life under the towering peaks which they believe is home to the Gods, and to hike through their villages early in the morning & see them burn junipers to drive away evil spirits with the shining silver grey peaks that surround them is an experience you don’t want to forget.

Jiri is a lovely place to spend some time before heading up to base camp; known as the ‘Switzerland’ of Nepal display some exotic landscapes is surely better than the paths that head up to the Everest region, despite the rugged trails on this  route which gives us thrills of a different kind than the path we use through Lukla. We do have to negotiate the heights, plod through punishing roads and deal with the mean climate of Everest region. But, the paybacks you get here is worth the go. We get masterful views of towering mountain peaks including world’s highest one Mt Everest (8848m) along with Mt. Lhotse, Mt Makalu and Mt Cho Oyu along with some other peaks. You can walk through beautiful rhododendron forest, waterfalls, and rivers and enjoy the beautiful landscapes while visiting some interesting monasteries. The culture here of the local Sherpa folks is interesting to learn about because its these climbers who mostly escort us throughout the Himalayas. We enjoy all of this till we culminate at Everest base camp but then just as important is our peaking out at Kalapathar, the highest point at 5545m of our Jiri EBC trip where the views leave us panting for breath; & then we make our way back slowly to Kathmandu & a warm soft bed.
