“Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley”
Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek brings you closer to the wonderful cultural and natural presence of Nepal by taking you away from the urban areas to the pristine yet soothing serenity of Everest Base Camp for a look at the world’s highest mountain- Mt. Everest (8,848m).
Our Jiri to EBC Trek starts with a road journey from Kathmandu to Jiri then we will stay in a lodge at Jiri. Jiri is a scenic village located in the Eastern Hilly region of Nepal. The varying altitude during the trek leads one from the lower hills to the high Himalaya. Everest Base Camp Trek is 175 km far away from Jiri via Namche Bazaar. This trek to Everest Base Camp tends to be longer than any other routes leading to Everest like the route starting from Lukla. In this trek, we shall start our trek from Jiri, a beautiful hill town in eastern Nepal and through the lush green landscape, villages such as Shivalaya, Bahandar, Sete, Junbesi, Nunthala, Bupsa, and Ghat with communities following Hindu and Buddhism as religion and gradually into the Dudh Koshi valley.
After a roller-coaster trek through the lush green hills filled with terraced farmlands and verdant forests of rhododendron, pine and other vegetation, we will head over the wooden and suspension bridges while enjoying the trek on some very steep and awe-inspiring terrains to reach beneath the Lukla airfield. This trek will take you the neck of the world highest peak Mt. Everest (8,848m) up to the Base Camp (5,357m) from the sea level. We then traverse in the valley dominated by Sherpa’s to reach Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital of Khumbu region. Further ahead of Namche, after acclimatization, we shall gradually enter into alpine vegetation and enjoy the visit to Tengboche, Dingboche and other settlements that host ancient and culturally rich monasteries to Pheriche, Kalapatthar (5,545m) and Gorakshep for the spectacular view of Everest. And then we retrace our steps back to reach Lukla for our flight to Kathmandu where we end our trek.
