Description


Everest Base Camp via Jiri is a classic route for Everest Trek explored since 1953 first by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.

Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri is the ultimate adventure experiences in the Himalaya. Enjoying life in extremes and exploring some of the finest natural and cultural wonder of Nepal. It begins from Jiri, a small town located in the Eastern 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.

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 including Himalaya, observe and mingle with ethnic tribes and explore varieties of flora and fauna.

In addition, the best alternative of Classic trek to EBC via Jiri is Everest Base Camp Trek via Phaplu drive. You could also electrify the route to base camp by combining Everest 3 Passes Trekking-19 Days or more scenic route to Gokyo Valley & Everest Base camp Trek-18 Days. Even, you can shorten the trek by taking Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek. If you want to add day/s climbing experience while trekking, you may join our Island Peak.
