The Jiri to Everest Base Camp trek is one of the longest treks in the Everest region. It is perfect for trekkers with plenty of time, interested in learning more about the lifestyle of Nepalese in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is the traditional route followed by the British Everest Expedition in 1953, long before the airport in Lukla was built. It also allows a more gradual acclimation as this trek starts from lower altitude.

Shivalaya, the starting point of this trek is reached after a 8-9 hour bus drive from Kathmandu.  It then continues up to Lukla, from where we follow the regular trail up to Everest base camp. It leads you to the foot of Everest, known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the World) in Tibetan & Sherpa, the highest mountain in the world. The trail is very well developed with comfortable tea houses along the way. We make our way through the Solukhumbu region slowly up the valley, tracing the path of the successful British 1953 expedition all the way to the Everest base camp. You follow the valley to Namche Bazar through the more moderate climate zone and, after slowly acclimatizing to the altitude, continue along the trail where you can observe the quick succession of vegetation zones until you reach the harsh environment at higher altitude. Despite the popularity, the Everest Base Camp trek is still an adventure.

You will see some of the most impressive mountains along the way like Cholatse and – the favourite of many visitors – Ama Dablam. If you feel up to it, we guide you up Kala Pathar (5,554m) which offers a magnificent panorama of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse and many more famous mountains as well as the Khumbu glacier. An unforgettable experience, especially at sunrise. Trekkers can also learn and observe the traditions, customs and rituals of the Sherpa.

This trek is very flexible and can be adjusted to your requirements. Teahouse or camping, throw in some challenging passes, explore the Gokyo Lake system – contact us for suggestions and we’ll help you plan your Everest adventure. With 17 years of experience, you are in safe hands. Everest Base Camp Trek-15 days or Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour-3hr or Everest Mountain Flight-1hr or Everest Panorama Trek or Gokyo, Cho La & Everest also available.
