Jiri to Everest base camp trek follows the steps of first mountaineers on their successful Everest Expedition in 1953. Yes, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa followed the same trail to the Base Camp and ultimately to the summit of Everest. This is the same classic trail used by every consequent mountaineering expedition and trek leaders until flights to Lukla offered a short cut. Nowadays, due to time limitation many trekkers choose to take a flight to Lukla and start and end the trek there. The Everest base camp trek starting from Jiri is equally accepted and regularly used by trekkers as it has its own appeal. The great mountain country, rivers and streams, beautiful and culturally rich villages, less crowded trail and most importantly the opportunity of more gradual acclimatization, the route still catches the attention of many trekkers. This route provides a chance to visit more Buddhist monasteries, more of the culturally rich Sherpa and other ethnic villages representing simple yet affluent mountain lifestyles and walking on this trail proves to be quite a significant experience.

This is one of the worlds best treks, set amongst breathtaking high mountain sceneries. Tourists are rarely seen at the earlier stages of this trek, because most prefer to fly to Lukla for certain reasons. Though this is an easier option many miss out on witnessing villages that reflect true Nepali culture and way of life. Magnificent landscapes, imposing & prestigious peaks, tapering ridges & colorful villages contribute to turning this trek into an unforgettable experience. The itinerary leads through the high Khumbu Mountains before finally arriving at the foot of the almighty Everest. The hike to Everest base Camp and Kala Pathar (5545m) ascent are the highlights of this trek.
