The oldest route for Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri, which veteran mountaineers walked during 50s while they attempted to scale Everest
The oldest route to Everest Base Camp that was trodden by mountaineering legends like Mallory, Hillary, Tenzing and many others begins from Jiri. Until early 70s trekkers and moauntaineers chased this trail. Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri stretches the number of days to 23 but at the meantime it incorporates the beholding beauty of Jiri, which is considered the Switzerland of Nepal.
Escaping the thrills of flying in to Lukla, the Everest Base Camp from Jiri highlights the amazing culture and the lush vegetation of lower Everest Region. It is almost a week long trek until it reaches Phakding before the course chases the presently popular Everest Base Camp Trek trail.
The trek is suitable for those trekkers who can afford to spend extra money and time to witness the entire picture of Everest Region. The trek allows proper acclimatization as it spends enough days at lower elevation of mountains before it reaches the biggest highlights of the trek that include Everest Base Camp & Kalapatthar.
The highlights of the trek include every landmark of regular Everest Base Camp Trek plus the amazing cultural opulence of lower Everest region that fall in between Jiri to Phakding. This trek is in fact the real and the most classical Everest Base Camp Trek that would be made more wonderful and worthwhile by our professional and experienced trek guides of Khumbu.
