Varying altitudes, diverse flora and fauna, cultures, and lifestyles are key experiences on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek. We begin with a flight into Lukla and from there follow the route established by early mountaineers keen to reach the summit of the majestic peak that is Everest. To reach Everest Base Camp we follow what is still the basic supply route through the Everest area, home to the Sherpa people. This takes us into the internationally acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sagarmatha National Park and allows trekkers to acclimatize as the altitude increases. It also gives folk a chance to accustom themselves to the daily challenges of climbing into higher than lower altitudes.

Jiri to Everest Base Camp is not easy as people think but the feeling of satisfaction is huge as we incredible mountain views, commanding river crossings, and the contrasting piece of rhododendron, magnolia, and alpine forests. Each day there is the chance to enjoy Sherpa hospitality in villages like Junbesi, Nunthala, and Bupsa before reaching Phakding. From this bustling little township on the bank of the majestic Dudh Koshi River, we enter the final challenges of our journey to Everest base camp trek. Major highlights in the latter part of the trek are the mountain landscapes, the breathtaking peaks, and the delights of being in the long-established Sherpa villages of Namche Bazaar and Kala Patthar with their famous hospitality.

Trekking in Nepal gives you a chance to get away from the challenges of daily life and meet the thrill of the true wilderness. Being in the presence of the world’s highest peak, Everest, or, as the locals know it, Sagarmatha, is an experience unlike any other. Travelers describe it as feeling as if they are in the presence of the gods, so great is its draw.

We begin our Everest base camp trek via jiri with the spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, with inflight views of snow-capped mountain ranges, Sherpa villages, milky river systems, and alpine meadows.

We trek into Phakding, journey through Namche Bazaar, take in the famous ancient Buddhist monastery of Tengboche, its ridgetop location providing remarkable views of Everest and the surrounding peaks.
