Jiri to Everest base camp

Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri  is the best and easy  ultimate adventure experiences in Himalaya. Enjoying life in extremes and exploring some of the finest natural and cultural wonder of Nepal is the primary goal of this trek. It begins from Jiri (scenic village located in the Easten Hilly region of Nepal). The varying altitude during the trek leads one from the lower hills to the high Himalaya. While trekking through the Solu area, visiting charismatic villages of Junbesi, Ringmo and over the great Lamjura can be an unforgettable experience.

Visiting Sagarmatha National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site),  lodging in ethnic Sherpa villages of Namche Bazaar and Khumjung, praying at the revered Buddhist monasteries of Tengboche and Pangboche, and hiking to Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,187ft) from Everest base camp, these are the major highlights. One gets to enjoy the scenic panorama of Nuptse, Everest and Lhotse from the top of Kala Patthar.

EBC via Jiri tends to be longer than any other routes leading to Everest, and we highly recommended it for those looking to experience the unique and extreme landscape of Eastern Nepal Himalaya, observe and mingle with ethnic tribes and explore varieties of flora and fauna.
