TRIP INFOMATION

Classic Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri is a classic journey that lets trekkers walk the same path as Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa walked all the way back in 1953. Comparatively, the trek to EBC from Jiri is less travelled and rather strenuous. It is a more challenging option for enthusiastic thrill-seekers who want to experience an alternate route than the short flight to Lukla. The Classic Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri adds more to the natural, the cultural and adventurous aspect of the trekking journey.

Starting with seven to eight hours of driving from Kathmandu to Jiri, the Classic EBC Trekking presents new settlements for trekkers that the conventional Lukla flight misses out on- like Junbesi and Nunthala. The path winds amazingly through primordial forests and serpentines through the terrace farmlands and old villages of the ancient valley. For the initial part of the trekking journey, trekkers can enjoy the relatively less-visited settlements until finally converging on the similar path to EBC at Namche Bazaar. The best times to do the Classic Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri are during the months of March to May and September and December. It is a strenuous journey and having the ability to trek for long hours of the day up and down the terrain certainly helps. Trekkers must be ready to face all of the difficulties that come with scaling the Himalayan landscape. The trek presents trekkers with a chance to explore the rather less-trodden path to reach the famous base camp of the Sagarmatha Peak. This journey presents more challenges in terms of terrain and duration and is more opted for trekkers who are looking for an adventure that will let them take on the arduous Himalayan landscape.   

The Classic Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri by Himalayan Recreation is a carefully crafted package that aims to present our customers with an unforgettable experience. We provide the best services and guides throughout the journey and always have the contentment of our customers in mind.

The sightseeing tour consists of visiting the four major UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the city. They include the Swayambhunath Stupa, the Kathmandu Durbar square, the Pashupatinath temple, and the Boudhanath Stupa. The heritage sites showcase amazing artwork and are built in the unique Nepali architectural style. After the tour, you will be transferred back to the Hotel where our guide will make sure that you are thoroughly prepared for tomorrow’s trekking trip. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

From Kathmandu, you will be driving on a winding road to Shivalaya, passing along the Sun Koshi riverside and watching fleeting glimpses of the countryside of Nepal, with terraced farms and vast fields of agriculture with occasional small villages and settlements adorning the land. As the nearest road head, Shivalaya via Jiri is the trailhead for classic treks into the Everest region. All early Everest expeditions- including the one led by John Hunt that put Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary on the summit of Everest for the first time in the history of climbing Everest back in 1953- passed through here.  Overnight stay at the guesthouse..

From Shivalaya, you will be trekking through the amazing wide open valley where the flat landscape is surrounded by tall hills and towering Langtang and Ganesh Himalayas towards the dainty settlement of Bhandar where you can see small houses with colorful roofs laid on terrace fields and surrounded by tall alpine trees. Ethic Jerel people reside in Bhandar and the environment is very cozy and beautiful. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

Trekking to Salung at 2650 meters, you will follow the trail that leads to the hospital at Phaplu. Making a short climb from the Ringmo Khola, the path takes you to the Taksindu Pass (3870m) from where the trail drops down past the monastery of the same name, on to Nunthala. Overnight at the guesthouse.

Leaving the leveled street of Nunthala, the track goes through packed, fractured flagstones that are difficult to walk on. Descending down to the bottom of the valley, you will Dudh Koshi River. The trail from here heads upwards, through tiny homesteads and villages clinging to the mountainsides. You will reach Khari Kola after a hard climb and further from here is Bupsa. Overnight stay at the guesthouse

From Bupsa, you will trek on the path to Ghat, with the view of the glorious Himalayas tantalizingly rising over the ridge tops of the Dudh Koshi River Valley. Along the way, you will pass by a monastery and Stupa on the point of the ridge. With a continual gain and loss of elevation, you will skirt the flanks of the valley from ridgeline to ridgeline towards Ghat. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Ghat, you will make your way to Namche Bazaar, converging your trail once again with the more-conventional route to the base camp. Passing through Phakding with its well-made cobbles and intact stairs, you will see many Mani walls and collections of painted stones and Stupas. The trekking trail descends through pleasant until finally reaching Namche Bazaar- the ancient trading post and the gateway to the Upper Khumbu Valley. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

This is another acclimatization day at Namche. You can spend the day exploring the city or can hike up to the Everest View Hotel and the Syangboche airstrip. The views of the Everest peak (8848m), Mount Thamserku (6608m) and the Kongde Ri (6187m) among many others from Namche are quite amazing. You can also visit the Sherpa Culture Museum and the Everest Photo Gallery at Namche. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Namche, you will be making your way to Tengboche, the spiritual center of the Khumbu. The village of Tengboche is situated at the confluence of the Imja Khola and the Dudh Koshi River and the views of the Ama Dablam Peak (6856m) and Taboche (6367m) from here are quite spectacular. At Tengboche, you can also visit the holy Tengboche Monastery- the most famous Sherpa Monastery of the Khumbu. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Tengboche, you will descend through the woodlands towards the Imja valley into the village of Dingboche via Pangboche. It is situated beside the river and has vast fields of barley and potatoes. Dingboche is also called the “Summer Valley” of the region. You will pass Deboche and Pangboche on the trail that runs along Imja Khola to reach Dingboche. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

This day is set aside for another acclimatization day at Dingboche. The location of the village is spectacular and it is one of the most beautiful, wild places on the entire journey. Further up the valley, the terminal moraines fall at a steep angle into the valley where immediately behind the ridges of Dingboche rise steeply. Views of the Island Peak (6189m), Lhotse (8414m) and the Chhukung glacier at Ambu Lapcha with its dramatic ice fall from the valley are amazing. Overnight stay at the guesthouse

From Dingboche, you will make your way to Lobuche, one of the last major stops before the base camp.
