About 19 Days EBC Trek via Jiri

Everest base camp Trek via Jiri is the most classic and best way to do an Everest trek with our agency TOP OF THE WORLD ADVENTURE following the footsteps of the old route followed by Everest expeditions in late 1950’s including Tenzing Norgay, Sir Edmund Hillary and great expedition groups at that time.

Everest base camp Trek via jiri (1905m) path heads eastward through the beautiful forested hills of Solu Area where Monasteries and uninterrupted mountain view lies ahead. The portion of the trek from Jiri to Lukla is commonly uncrowded, and so far better for trekking route. The varying altitude throughout the trek leads one from the lower hills to the high Himalaya where we follow the Dudh Koshi River to join the main Everest trail below Lukla. Once in the Khumbu region the mountain views improve with every step with Mt. Kwangde, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Kantega and of course the summit of Mount Everest itself. Then with the benefits of increased fitness we make the ascent to Namche Bazaar. From Namche the trek follows the Gokyo Lake to Everest Base Camp then flies out from Lukla to Kathmandu and ending the 19 days trip by TOP OF THE WORLD ADVENTURE agency.
