Classic Everest base camp Trek from Jiri

22 Days

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.
