Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

20 days

Overview

The Jiri to Everest Base Camp route is included in the typical trekking route. It was first used by Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. The route includes views of the natural beauty of mountains ranges with forests and other types of vegetation. Trails wind through many villages, some of which will be the overnight stay destinations.  There will be ample opportunities for interaction with local people to learn about their traditions and cultures.

Trekking begins in Jiri, and walking will be on narrow, “roller coaster” (up and down) trails. Every day, the route leads to higher altitudes, and the temperatures will steadily become much cooler.  Acclimatization will occur in different locations as directed by our trekking experts. The trek ends in Lukla.  The Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is rated as moderate to strenuous.
