Drive 6 hours to Jiri 188 km, 2,100 m. height. jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking is the classic trekking trail in Everest region. The trail follows the footsteps of the old approach route followed by Everest expeditions from the 1950's through the 70's. The Everest Jiri trekking route provides a good opportunity to see the densely populated middle hills and the high altitude splendor of the Khumbu (Everest) region.
From Jiri the trail heads eastward through the lovely forested hills of Solu and over the 3530 mtrs Lamajura Pass. Monasteries and uninterrupted mountain views lie ahead. The portion of the trek from Jiri to Lukla is often uncrowded, and therefore very good trekking country. We cross the Lamjura La and Thaksindo before descending towards the raging river of the Dudh Kosi. We follow the Dudh Koshi river north through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main Everest trail below Lukla. Known as the Solu-Khumbu it is the home land of the Sherpa People. Trekking through the Sherpa villages we share many of their hearths and enjoy their generous hospitality. Trekking in from Jiri has the advantage of helping you to acclimatize en route.
By now you will have had time to adjust to life on the trail and, with the benefit of increased fitness, make the ascent to Namche Bazaar. Once in the Khumbu region the mountain views improve with every step - Kwangde, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam (the "horse saddle" of Kantega) and, of course, the summit of Everest itself.
