Jiri to EBC Trek

Duration: 2 Nights 3 Days

Jiri to EBC Trek an adventurous trek which takes you to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest (8,848m). This trek follows the footsteps of the Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary to reach the Everest Base Camp. As such, the Jiri to EBC Trek reveals the authentic culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa communities along the way. Destinations like Kalapatthar, Namche, and Tengboche ensure plenty of exciting affairs along the journey.

Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, you follow the busy roads of the Kathmandu city to reach your hotel. On the second day, you will take a seven-hour drive towards Jiri crossing Sun Koshi River on the way. Once at Jiri, our real trekking begins. The trail passes through the settlement of Bhandar and proceeds towards Sethe. Along the way, you will walk through the forest of pine and oak trees which grant immersing experience in the Lower Khumbu region.  From Sethe, you will slowly ascend towards Junbesi crossing Lamjura La Pass at 3530m. Similarly, walking past the settlements such as Nunthala, Paiya, and Phakding, you head to the commercial hub of the region at Namche Bazaar. After a proper acclimatization session at the town, you pass Tengboche and Lobuche to reach Gorakshep. A trek along the Khumbu Glacier leads you to the Everest Base Camp. The thrill and pride that comes along with stepping on the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest (8,848m), tells another story altogether. After exploring EBC, you will return to Gorakshep and hike to Kalapatthar. Here, you can enjoy glorious views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Nuptse (7,861m), Lhotse (8,516m), Ama Dablam (6,856m), and Lingtren (6,749m). Following back the same trail, you will now return to Lukla from where you will take a flight back to Katmandu. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for this trek.
