The Everest region is one of the most popular trekking regions in Nepal and for good reason; it offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the country and hence has become one of the most sought after adventure trips in the world. The Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is designed for adventurous trekkers who wish to experience a long, rewarding trek.This trek takes you through the most popular villages of the Khumbu Region, and includes challenging uphills and downhillsleading to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,021ft). The trek also lets you encounter the friendliness of the local Sherpa people, who call this wonderland their home. They have a rich culture filled with interesting traditions that must be experienced first-hand.

 

The Jiri to Everest Base Camp trek provides spectacular scenery and offers big challenges to even the most experienced trekkers. Included is a hike to Kalapathar (5545m) (literally meaning Black Rock); which offers some of the most dramatic views of Mt. Everest, Pumari, Nuptse, and Lhotse along with incredible peaks of entire Khumbu region. Everest Base Camp trek from Jiri is a great fusion of the landscape in the region; offering incredible scenery, challenging high altitude trekking and opportunities to come into contact with the Sherpa people and their unique culture.

 

Special Notice: Due to unpredictable weather conditions in the Himalayas, there may be unforeseen schedule changes in domestic flights to Lukla and from Lukla. The flights may be delayed for several hours or pushed back by a day or more, depending on the circumstances. Although this is rare, it can happen even during the best trekking seasons. As you know, high altitude weather conditions can be difficult to predict. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you plan for this by allowing for an extra day or two in Nepal after your trek, if possible. This will help ensure that you have some flexibility with regard to your trek. On the other hand, if everything goes according to plan, you will have time to enjoy other activities such as rafting, wildlife viewing, shopping, or just relaxing after your adventure.

 

*Another option (in case of flight delay/cancellation) is to take a helicopter to/from Lukla. If you choose to go this route, we can arrange everything upon request.
