Jiri – Everest base camp trek

Jiri – Everest base camp trek allows following the traditional route of the footprints of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who first climbed the Mount Everest. It is one of the classic Middle Hills treks in Nepal free from hassle crowds flying to Lukla. Although the construction of the new road is already access beyond Jiri to Shivalaya now it has remained as a center point starting point of the trek.

The inhabitant of this region is Sherpa people who are formerly from Tibet who live chiefly along the Dudh Koshi River. The route is still used by porters, mules who carry necessary goods, but only a few trekkers follow this route in compare to Lukla to Everest Base Camp Trek.

Normally in the first-week trial begins at an altitude of (1800m) and passes through the lay of land, the trail dips and soars between tropical Valley and crosses numerous ridges descending down to rivers at around 1500m and ascending passes over 3000 meters. The trail offers you wonderful views of terraced farmlands, forests. People of this region practice Hinduism and Buddhism their culture. Hence Jiri – Everest base camp trek has been able to grab the attention of those trekkers who prefer to get indulge them self in the beauty of nature.

As the trials ascend towards the Namche the ‘up and down’ trial continues to rise which cause a variation in change in temperature which drops to lower in the night time. There are numerous hubs of this region like Tengboche Monastery which is regarded as largest Monastery. As the trail ascends the human settlement becomes smaller but trial offers a beautiful view of the ice and pure breathtaking glacial landscapes.

A final acclimatization is taken at Dingboche. A slow walk up to Lobuche, Gorakshep and the track leads to Everest Base Camp. After spending the second night at Gorakshep, an early morning trek up to Kalapathar offers a breathtaking view of Pumori, Everest, and the South Col, Nuptse and Lhotse etc.

As the trek begins to end a descend walk to Namche begins more quickly. And from there it’s a day’s walk to Lukla for an early morning flight back to Kathmandu.
