Classic Jiri Everest Base Camp Trekking

Most people take Lukla flight from Kathmandu to start the Everest Base Camp trek but you will be physically much fitter and better acclimatized if you start your trek from Jiri, which is 8-9 hours drive from Kathmandu or either further drive to Shivalaya then start the trek. The Classic Jiri Everest Base Camp trek goes through the beautiful middle hills countryside, villages, Buddhist monasteries, monuments and beauty fauna. This route to Khumbu area is wonderfully free from crowd and no stress to book a ticket to Lukla offering an approach into the village life and culture of the famous Sherpa people combined with a journey into some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.

The route has good facilities of lodging and varieties of foods. On the way, we can visit several monasteries, Buddhist Religious Monuments, Mani Walls.  Junbesi is beautiful village to take rest day and 3-4 hours excursion around the village and to Thupten Chholing, a huge Tibetan Buddhist monastery is a really worthwhile hike and exploration. There are more than 350 nuns and 150 monks and nuns offers us blessed fruits, breads and cookies with Tibetan butter tea after their prayer and recitation.  We will trek through the heart of the Khumbu to Namche Bazaar and the beautiful village of Khumjung. Buddhist Monasteries, mani stones and chortens all add a spiritual feel to this spectacular mountain environment of Himalayan giants: Kangteiga, Ama Dablam, Kwangde, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Tawachee, none under 6000m high.  The sunrise on the snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight. From Gorakshep, the bare summit of Kala Pathar is pointed out; a mere ´pimple´ dwarfed by the towering crags of 7,855m Pumo Ri. The effort required to reach the summit is worth every breath! Below, the Khumbu glacier stretches back towards Lobuche. Across the mass of ice, towers Nuptse and Everest....a worthy goal indeed!

This trek is one for the mountain connoisseur and the lover of high places. To see the world’s highest mountain is what many dreams are made of. It is a tough proposition and not to be taken lightly. Although trails are generally well graded there is a rough section along the Khumbu glacier. Beyond Namche ascents are not particularly steep though the effects of altitude may make them feel a lot steeper! It is suitable for reasonably fit people who are used to walking in the hills and is a reasonable proposition for a first trek in Nepal.
