On your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, one of the company’s staff will pick you and escort you to the hotel. You can have some rest after such a long journey, and in the evening, you will meet your guide. He will briefly explain to you about the upcoming trek. Overnight stay at the hotel.

Early morning you will have a 30-minute scenic flight to Lukla over the lush green hills and snow-capped mountains. Upon landing in Lukla, you will be walking past the stone paved streets of the village and trekking along winding trails to arrive in Phakding. Along the journey, you can catch your first glimpses of Kusum Khangkaru (6367m) and Kongde Ri (6168m). Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Phakding.

Today you will be walking along the side of Dudh Koshi River passing many small villages. You will reach Monjo, which is the entry point of Sagarmatha National Park, and our guide will take care of the permits. Then crossing a suspension bridge and walking a bit ahead, you will arrive in Namche Bazaar. You can enjoy the bustling town’s rich Sherpa ambiance as the town’s streets are lined with small Chortens and prayer wheels. Stay overnight in the hotel.

The town of Namche is a great destination for an overnight stop for acclimatization. The town is one of the most famous towns of the Khumbu region and used to be a rendezvous point for many Nepali and Tibetan traders in ancient times. The town is also amazing for experiencing the Sherpa culture of the Himalayas, and you can also visit the Everest Photo Gallery and the Sherpa Culture Museum here. Stay overnight at the hotel.

From Namche Bazaar, the trekking trail continues further towards the Dudh Koshi River Valley, reaching Phunke Tenga—a small settlement that offers an excellent view of Ama Dablam (6856m). Trekking along the alpine forest, you will finally reach Tengboche, the spiritual center of Khumbu. You can visit the famous and large Tengboche Monastery here. The monastery is surrounded by rhododendron-covered forests that are home to the colorful Himalayan monal and mountain eagles. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Tengboche.

From Tengboche, you will trek along a well-trodden track that crosses the suspension bridge over Imja River and passes through the village of Pangboche to reach Dingboche–a famous “summer valley” of the Khumbu region. The village of Dingboche is a quaint mountain settlement that is surrounded by tall hills and towering peaks along with Mani walls and colorful prayer flag-laden monasteries and Chortens. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

Today you will be walking along the steep trails passing through small villages en route to Lobuche. You will pass by the memorial stone Chortens that were specially made for the people who lost their lives while heading towards the summit of Everest. Then you will ascend along the large Khumbu Glacier to reach Lobuche. Overnight in hotel.

From Lobuche, you will make your way alongside the Khumbu Glacier towards Gorakshep—a sparsely occupied settlement and one of the last stops before the Everest Base Camp. From here, the trail finally reaches the base camp of Mount Everest. Upon your arrival at the base camp, you can witness great sights of the Khumbu Icefall and the various peaks of Mahalangur Himal Range, including Everest (8848m). After spending some time at the base camp, return to Gorakshep for the overnight stay.

Early in the morning, you will trek to Kala Patthar—one of the best viewpoints in the Khumbu region. Kala Patthar offers panoramic views of the entire Everest massif. From here, you can enjoy a wonderful sunrise view over the mesmerizing snowy peaks of the Mahalangur Himalayan Range. After enjoying the sunrise at Kala Patthar, you will make your way back to Gorakshep, from where you will take a helicopter ride back to Lukla. The helicopter ride presents the amazing perspective of the magnificent mountains, and you can also see the dramatic change in the terrain as you fly over the region. The towering peaks are quite brilliant to witness in such a fashion. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Lukla.

An early morning start to Kalapatthar from Gorakshep is one of the best parts of the trip. Kalapatthar is a well-known vantage point common for providing panoramic views of Mount Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7861m), Pumori (7165m), Lhotse (8414m), and many other peaks. A tough ascend to Kalapatthar rewards you with the mesmerizing sunrise over the snowy peaks. The sun rays touch the tip of the mountains and change the Colour of the peaks from silver to gold. After spending some time in Kalapatthar, you hike down to Gorakshep and then trek all the way down to Pheriche. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

One of our staff members will drive you to Tribhuvan International Airport to connect you with your flight back home.

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.
