Country of natural beauty.

Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri assimilates ultimate adventure experiences in Himalaya. Enjoying life in extremes and exploring some of the finest natural and cultural wonder of Nepal is the primary goal of this trek. It begins from Jiri (scenic village located in the Easten 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.

DAY 5- SETE TREK TO JUNBESI (2670m) 4-5 hours

Early start today since we had several obstacles ahead: a cold, cloudy day, a 1,000 metre climb followed by a 500 metres drop to Junbesi. We started upward immediately on a rough trail. Again the mountainside was composed of gneiss fractured along the mica bands which creates sheets and crumbling flagstones that lie in serrations and rough steps and are often treacherous unstable and loose. You can’t take your eye off the next step, which requires concentrated, hard climbing. We were moving into an ancient rhododendron forest that was just starting to blossom after the long Himalayan winter. As we climbed we entered the cloud layer and the temperature dropped close to freezing, but the climbing was noticeably easier than the day before.

DAY 6 - JUNBESI TREK TO NUNTHALA (2330m) 6-7 hours

Today trek from Junbesi after we cross the Junbesi Khola river and then climb steeply uphill, contouring above the houses to the end of the ridge. From here we have excellent views of Everest, Thamserku (6608m), Kantega (6779m), Kusum Kanguru (6367m) and Mera Peak (6654m). This is the first view of Everest on this trek, although the lower peaks in the foreground seem to dwarf the higher, more distant mountains. After passing the Ringmo Khola river, the trail ascends to Ringmo village, with its abundant fruit orchards. Beyond Ringmo we climb to the Trakshindu La pass (3071m), where we can see the isolated monastery of Trakshindu, a superb example of Sherpa architecture. We now descent through forests of conifer and rhododendron, passing shepherds’ huts and bhattis alongside the trail until we reach at Nunthala (2200m).

DAY 9 - PUIYAN TREK TO PHAKDING (2,610m) 5-6 hours

The trail climbs for about an hour after Puiyan to a ridge at 2800 meters, then up to another ridge. First we descend to Surke from Puiyan, on a small tributary stream of the DudhKoshi and climb for 15 minutes to a junction where a stone staircase leads off to the right to the Lukla airport. However, it is not necessary to go there, so we climb toward to Phakding.

DAY 10 - PHAKDING TREK TO NAMCHE BAZAAR (3,440m) 6-7 hours

The trail meanders through pine forest, along the Dudh Koshi River, crossing suspension bridges via the Sherpa villages of Benkar, Chumoa, Monjo and Jorsale: entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park and permit checkpoint; with tranquil views of glistening Thamserku (6,618m/21,714m). The trail continues along the riverbed to the confluence of the Bhote and Dudh Koshi Rivers. It then climbs steadily, crossing the high Tenzing- Hilary suspension bridge: with inspiring glimpses of Everest and the Nuptse – Lhotse ridge. A final three hour ascent through pine forest leads to the prosperous trading and administrative town of Namche Bazaar.

DAY 11 - ACCLIMATION DAY IN NAMCHE BAZAAR

This is first scheduled ‘acclimatization’ day for this trek. Health experts always recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. We either spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or carry out relaxed exploration of Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the main centre of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize.

DAY 12 - NAMCHE BAZAAR TREK TO TENGBOCHE (3860m) 5-6 hours

After a good time for Namche Bazaar,adventure continues with fairly easy for the first half walk follow on the gradual trail with few short ups and downs overlooking magnificent view of the great giant snow peaks from Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde Ri peak after a pleasant walk of two to three hours coming at Phungithanga 3,250m, a small settlement with couple of tea houses and an Army barrack serving as park wardens the area is surrounded with alpine forest of silver firs, blue pines, rhododendron, Juniper, magnolia and birch trees, the uphill from here of two hours reaches Tengboche Monastery for the overnight stop.

DAY 13 - TENGBOCHE TREK TO PHERICHE (4260m) 5-6 hours

We wake up by the sound of the monk’s trumpets and we can see Mount Everest in the sun, wonderful from the window. Before breakfast we go for a tour to Tengboche Monastery. This is a very old monastery and it has even been rebuilt. After breakfast, hiked down to Pheriche.

DAY 14 - PHERICHE TREK TO LOBUCHE (4,920m) 4-5 hours

We move up a small ridge and contour around the base of Khumbu Glacier and lunch at Dhugla (4,600m). After lunch, we take a steep ascent to the terminal moraine of the glacier from where the views are stunning. We continue again along the moraine and camp at the foot off the Lobuche Ice Fall (4,930m).

DAY 15 - LOBUCHE TREK TO GORAKSHEP (5160m) 7-8 hours

From Lobuche walk towards final destinations of this wonderful journey to Everest base camp, the walk from here follows the rocky moraine path and icy-glacial pond and icebergs down below Khumbu glacier. After the moraine dunes a short downhill walk brings to Gorak Shep situated below Kalapatthar 5,545 m and Mt. Pumori 7,145 m. Gorak Shep has four lodges, after a short break here walk towards Everest Base Camp, the walk is quite strenuous due to the high altitude and thin air, the route leads over rocky dunes and moraine and streams, till Everest Base Camp is reached this spot is lively during the high expedition season. At Base Camp great view of the Khumbu icefall and other giant peaks that rears above you. After a glorious time here return to Gorak Shep for the overnight stop.

DAY 16 - MORNING HIKE TO KALAPATHAR (5545m) CONTINUE WALK TO PHERICHE (4243m) 6 hours

Morning leads to a steep climb to Kalapathar the awesome panoramic view points, on reaching the top of Kalapatthar a rocky small peak the southwest ridge of Mt. Pumori, fantastic views from here as Mt. Everest is within a stone throw distance including Everest Base camp way down below on the moraine of Khumbu glacier, after a gorgeous time here descends to Gorakshep and continue walk to Pheriche, the route is fairly easy about downhill slopes most of the way of the flat Pheriche Valley, afternoon time is very windy here, after a good walk reaches you at Pheriche for the overnight stop.

DAY 17 - PHERICHE TREK TO NAMCHE (3440 m) 6-7 hours

After the previous day’s tiring ascent to Kala Patthar, today is an easier walk down to the lower altitudes. Following the same route back to the terminal moraines at Dughla and following the wide valley of Khumbu Khola we pass through the beautiful Sherpa villages of Pheriche, Orsho, and Shomare. If we wish to visit the Gompa in Upper Pangboche we can do so by taking a different trail from Shomare. Otherwise we take the regular trial to reach Pangboche. From Pangboche we retrace our footsteps down to the Imja Khola and up through the forest to Debuche or if interested, we might visit nuns at the Debuche monastery. Finally, we reach Tengboche.

DAY 18 - NAMCHE TREK TO LUKLA (2800m) 5-6 hours

The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast following Dud Koshi and its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. By today we start to get warmed up by the light breeze. Any remaining sore throats and colds will be gone by today as we pass through this charming mountain air. Although we are travelling the same route down, we feel completely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance snow covered peaks.

DAY 19 - LUKLA FLY TO KATHMANDU (30 min.)

We usually travel by twin otter aircraft from Lukla to Kathmandu, the flight lasts approx one hour and takes us before many of the well known peaks of the Himalaya including Cho Oyu, Numbur, Gauri Shankar and Langtang.
