Jiri Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to the top of the world – to the base camp of Mt. Everest along a unique route which was once followed by the first mountaineers who successfully climbed the Mt. Everest namely Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary. Avoid a flight to Lukla and take the next alternate long and more adventurous route to the Everest region of Nepal. Walk along beautifully terraced crop fields, lush forests and countryside landscape of Nepal via Jiri.
Your journey will be long but rewarding and will give you enough time for acclimatizing with the rising altitude. Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek can be quite strenuous in a way as it is quite long trek and we have to walk long tiring paths as compared to the other treks to Everest region.
Jiri to Everest Base Camp trek commences at Jiri from where the trail first drops down to river belt and slowly rises up along the undulating narrow paths that go up and down and finally follows the main trail to Everest at Namche. Namche is the only gateway to Everest. This buzzling city in Everest Region is unique in its own ways. The paths are narrow which is crowded by people and dzopkyos hauled with the goods. The dzopkyos are used as a means of transport to transport goods from one place to another i.e. from a higher altitude region to Lukla.
Further, our trail follows Tengboche monastery offering the close up and pleasing views of mountains in the Everest region. Leaving the monastery, the trail passes pastures of Dingboche and Lobuche to Everest Base Camp via Gorekshep. Once, you reach the base camp, you can feel the raw appeal of mountains that rise tall one over the other. The beautiful sunrise and sunset views from Kalapattar is quite remarkable.
So, get ready to applaud the beauty of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam and many more with Himal Eco Treks by being a part of Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek!
