Trip Details

Jiri-Everest base camp trek is an adventure trek for those trekkers who are physically fit, in good health, enough holidays and are determined to challenge themselves with unpredictability of mountain life. There are two routes to Everest Base Camp trek: one that begins from Lukla and another that begins from Jiri.
This Jiri-Everest base camp trekking itinerary has been designed in consultation with professional mountaineers and guides ensuring adequate time for proper acclimatization. While on the trek, we also pass through the alpine forests, glacial rivers, and enjoy the warm hospitality of ethnic people. Visit the Buddhist monasteries with prayer flags, the Sherpa and other ethnic villages with their simple yet rich mountain lifestyles. The views are gorgeous, and walking in the Himalayas proves to be quite an intense experience.
Jiri-Everest Base Camp Trek involves a tremendous amount of up-and-down walking. A glance at a map will show why. All the rivers in this part of Nepal flow south from Himalayan glaciers, but the trek route proceeds east. Therefore the track must climb to the ridge that separates two rivers, descend to the river itself, and ascend the next ridge. Even though the trek begins at an elevation of 1860m, on the sixth day it crosses the Dudh Koshi at only 1500m – after considerable uphill (and downhill) walking .
If we total all the uphill climbing, it comes to almost 10,000m of elevation gain from Jiri to Everest base camp. The road to Jiri saves almost 4000m of uphill walking over the old approach from Lamosangu that was used in the 1970s, but this is still a long, hard trek with many steep hills.
