Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

Trip Code: EJB

22 Days

Jiri Bazaar, East Nepal

For those adventurers wanting to step back in time, and become one with the majesty of the Himalaya, this long and challenging Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is highly recommended. This outstanding trek follows the classic trekking route used by the late Sir Edmund Hillary and late Tenzing Norgay for their approach to Mt. Everest in 1953. Starting with a scenic eight hour drive to Jiri and begin the trek  to Everest Base Camp at Shivalaya  through lush low lands and alpine forests, Buddhist monasteries, and the authentic Sherpa Villages of the lower Solukhumbu. If you need to get away and unplug, this is the best  trip ever  for you. You will  cross through the Lamjura  High Mountain Pass while enjoying the excellent views of towering snowcapped peaks in the distance. Each evening you will stay at lodge along the route.

Reaching the Dudh Kosi River, you will walk  beneath the airfield at Lukla and continue  your journey heading northwards to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to one of the most remarkable high mountain landscapes on earth. After long days of  walking you will  spend one extra day at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and rest. Then you will continue your trek to the monastery village of Tengboche and other interesting villages  such as Dingboche , Lobuche , Gorak Shep until you reach Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar. From Gorak Shep you will  hike along the Khumbu Glacier to Everest Base camp and next morning  climb to the top of Kala Patar, to enjoy  the best Everest views.

Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek
provides a good  opportunity to explore the socio - life of the Himalayan  Sherpa people along with their religion, customs and tradition. Alluring birds like the golden eagle, snow pigeon, red-billed and yellow-billed birds fill the skies and exotic flowers like rhododendron, blue pine,magnolias, chir pine, hemlock and juniper make the trekking a wonderful experience. After you walk down to  Namche Bazaar you will  follow the same  trail up  to Lukla. Usually this part of the trail  between Namche Bazaar and Lukla  is  considered crowded, however, after so much time on a quiet trail in the Khumbu region, encountering fellow travelers from around the world will be pleasant and enjoyable moment for you..


The condition of the trail and teahouses along the trekking route from Jiri to Everest Base Camp is in good shape and most of the teahouses are in operation for the upcoming season after the earthquake. The Everest region did experience some damages to schools and teahouses on 25th April and 12th May, 2015 earthquakes in Nepal.
