Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri

  • Everest Region


“Everest base camp via Jiri route is one of the classic Everest treks first explored by the Everest Expedition of 1953.”

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 Eastern 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.
