The Classic Everest Trek (Jiri to Everest Base Camp) follows the trail first used by the first climbers heading for Everest.  Jiri (1905m) has a unique and clean environment.

Jiri is still a gateway to Everest Base Camp and is promoting a green clean organic environment and are involved in growing exotic fruits, such as Kiwi Fruit. They also have a cheese-making factory making the traditional cheese called Chhurpi or durkha, made from yak and cow’s milk and consumed in the Himalayan region. The valley has a large farming community working terraced fields and a yak farm worth visiting. There is also a park and memorial to Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing – the first to climb Everest (8848m - Sagarmatha). As you head toward base camp you may see rare species, such as the snow leopard, musk deer, and red panda.

This trek can be very demanding with many steep ascents and descents and is also referred to as the Great Himalaya Cultural Trail has a lot to offer, with Buddhism being the main religion and Lamas their spiritual leaders. Along the trail, you will see an abundance of birdlife, forests, and quaint photogenic villages. You will pass a number of well known Buddhist monasteries, such as Thupten Choling near the Sherpa village of Junbesi (2700m) and Trakshindu.

Welcome to Kathmandu, a city full of vibrant markets, bustling streets, colorful temples and grand pagodas. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you to our hotel. The remainder of the day you will have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the shopping areas closest to your hotel and catch up on shopping for equipment. In the evening, our tour guide will give you a brief introduction and provide valuable information about the trek. In the evening you will meet the rest of the group at a welcome dinner at a local Nepali restaurant.
Our journey starts at Kathmandu and heads toward Kodari (the border entry to Tibet). We first cross the Sun Koshi River and travel to toward Mude (1858m) on a rugged mountainous road with beautiful views of terraced farmlands, traditional villages and spectacular vistas of eastern Himalayan mountains, such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang Ri (7205m), Langtang Lurung (7234m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), and numerous other snow-capped ranges. We eventually arrive at the riverside village of Shivalaya where we stay the night.
Today we follow the trail across a river before a steep ascent to Sangbadanda Village at (2240m). The trail continues until we reach the tea shop at Mabhir and then climb to Deurali Village (2705m). This region is steeped in Tibetan culture, as can be seen by the Mani walls (made from inscribed stones of Tibetan mantras) along the trail. As we climb there are panoramic views of the Likhu Khola Valley and Bhandar. Descending for around two hours we finally reach Bandar Village The trail drops for about two hours before arriving at our destination Bhandar Village.
After leaving Bhandar we descend through the lower fields of the village and follow a small river before descending through forest. Once clear of the forest we descend into a deep gorge passing by Baranda and on to the Sherpa village of Kenja (1570m). Again we descend to Lamjura Pass (3530m), initially a steep descent before climbing upwards. After a further two hours we reach Chimbu Village (2140m) after which we continue to Sete village where we stay the night.
From Sete we follow the trail to Lamjura Pass (3530m) through rhododendron, magnolia, maple and birch forests with the Himalayan Mountains in the background. The pass can be gusty, cold and windy in the afternoon. The trail exits the eastside of the pass and is quite steep as it descends through the fragrant fir and hemlock forests before reaching the small Sherpa village of Junbesi where we stay the night.
Junbesi is an ideal village to spend the day exploring its bazaar and Buddhist monasteries in the surrounding hills. Looking northward is a view of Mt. Numbur (6959m)- known in Sherpa as Shorong Yul Lha (god of Solu). Choling Tibetan monastery is well worth a visit and was founded by Trulsuk Rinpoche who fled to Nepal from Rongbuk Gompa in Tibet with a large group Anis (nuns) and monks in the 1960s.
From Trakshindu we head along a trail to Dudh Koshi (milk river) and on to Kharikhola Village (2010m) we ascend to Bupsa (2360m).
Following the trail today offers us views of Mt. Khumbila and Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m). The trail continues into a deep gorge Keep before ascending to a ridge overlooking the Sherpa village of Paiya (Chitok) and continuing to Surkhet, Chaurikharka (2630m) before arriving at Ghat where we stay the night.
Today we trek through the valley with the Dudh Kosi River at our side. On several occasions, you cross the Dudh Kosi River on suspension bridges before climbing higher before reaching the small village of Jorsale in the Khumbu region – just south of Namche Bazaar. After a two hour trek, you will finally reach Namche with some fascinating views along the way, including some spectacular views of captivating Mt. Everest (Sagamartha in Nepali). You enter the Sagarmatha National Park at Jorsale where authorities will check your license. Continuing on for another 5 or 6 hours of fairly hard going we arrive at Namche Bazaar.
Acclimatization is important for your safety before heading to higher elevations. It is recommended that you stay active during the day, so we will go for a day’s trek through the towns of Khunde and Khumjung, taking in the stunning views of Everest, before returning to Namche. At Namche, you may decide to view what is supposed to be a Yeti skull! Namche also boasts of having a bakery! Besides Everest, you can, weather permitting, also see Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and numerous other spectacular peaks.. After breakfast, we will trek to the Syangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we ascend towards Khunde, along the way passing various chortens (Buddhist stone structures). Leaving Khunde we take the trail heading east to Khumjung (3790m), the largest town in the Khumbu district, at the foot of the Mt. Khumbila (translated “God of Khumbu”). After lunch at Khumbu we head to Everest View Hotel, well known for its magnificent views of Everest before heading back down to Namche (3540m) - 4 to 5-hour trek.
The fairly even trek, taking around 5 hours, to Tengboche zigzags, taking us past many valleys before arriving at Kenjoma, where it connects with the path from Khumjung just before passing many Mani stones (stones inscribed with sacred Buddhist prayers). The views of Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam are nothing short of breath-taking along this section of the trek. We pass the small village of Sanasa from where the path descends to Phunki Thanga (3250m) before a steep ascent through pine forests while passing more Mani stones as the trail hugs the slope before reaching Tengboche (3870m). Tengboche is famous for its sublime views of many of the world’s tallest peaks, such as Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega, and Thamserku. Tonight we stay at Tengboche.
Today we head downhill on a 3 to 4-hour trek passing through forests before crossing the Imja Khola passing through the village of Pangboche, memorable for its fields encompassed by rock walls. Tonight we stay at Dingboche.
Our trek today begins at around 8.30 a.m taking us on a relatively easy route up to Chhukung. From here you get a superb view of Mt. Ama Dablam. The views from Chhukung and later in the valley of Island Peak is spectacular. Today’s trek is relatively short, mostly downhill, before reaching Dingboche where we stay overnight. This trek is often accompanied with strong winds.
Today’s trek passes many Chortens (Tibetan shrines & tombs) taking around 1.5 hours before reaching the village of Thugla (4600m) where we have lunch at its tea house. After lunch, we head towards some towering peaks, such as Mt Pumori (7161m) and Mt. Nuptse (7861m) before reaching Lobuche Village (4940m). We then pass through an open valley before arriving at Thukla after leaving the Pheriche Aid Post at Pheriche (4371m). The aid post is manned during the peak trekking seasons We then descend to the yak pastures of the small settlement of Lobuche. Today's trek will take around 5 hours. Tonight we stay at Lobuche.
This morning we will begin with a two-hour trek to Gorakshep. The trail is initially quite easy, but progressively becomes more difficult. Along the trail we have some fantastic views of several towering peaks, such Everest, Nuptse and other enormous peaks. The trail continues for about 150 metres before traversing a moraine and then gets easier before arriving at Gorakshep, one on the world’s the world's most isolated and highest settlements. After stopping for lunch we trek toward EBC following a trail alongside the Khumbu ice sheet. The trek around the ice sheet takes around 1.5 hours before crossing the glacier and into the region of EBC (5360m). At base camp you will have an opportunity to meet other climbers and share stories. From EBC you will have views of the Khumbu ice sheet and glacier with its frightening and dangerous crevices. We will then descend to Gorakshep, a journey of 6 to 7 hours.
The early morning trek to Kalapathar (5550m) from Gorakshep will take around two hours. After a short climb to Kalapathar you will have uninterrupted views of Everest and other towering peaks. The magnificent photos of Everest seen on the internet are taken from this vantage point. From here we head down to Gorakshep, a fairly easy downhill trek. At Gorakshep we stop for tea and a snack before continuing on our descent to Pheriche. After accomplishing your goal of reaching EBC and experiencing high altitude climbing, you will sleep soundly at Pheriche. Today’s trek will take between 7-8 hours.
From Pangboche we retrace our steps descending to the Imja Khola and then up through the rhododendron forest to Tengboche monasteries. For some, this will be an opportunity to see the nuns perform their religious ceremonies at the Tengboche Monastery. After lunch at Tengboche, we continue our trek across the hillside blanketed by colorful rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the bridge over the (milky river) Dudh Koshi River our trail continues through the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests before reaching Sansa. Along the way we keep our eyes peeled for wildlife, such as (Himalaya Thar) mountain goats, snow leopards and colorful pheasants while passing through the forest. After passing a Chortens we reach the Army camp at Namche Bazaar where we stay overnight.
It is a fairly long day with a 7-hour trek from Namche to Lukla, which is mostly downhill with several sections of level ground. We leave the Sagarmatha National Park and eventually reach Lukla where we stay overnight.
Our morning flight will have us reach Kathmandu in around 30 minutes. During the flight you will have a birds-eye view of many of the world’s soaring peaks in the Himalaya Ranges. Your guide will escort you from the airport to your hotel.

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Physical fitness

Classic EBC is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

Jiri-Everest Base Camp Trek!

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money

My recent trek to the Everest region was a very memorable one which I would recommend to anyone with an inkling of adventure in their veins. I went with a guide from Jiri to EBC, Gokyo, and back. I would highly recommend doing the Jiri to Lukla part of the track as you get to view a much more diverse range of cultures and landscapes, than if you started straight from Lukla. Also, acclimatization is helped by starting from the Jiri end of the track. I particularly found the town of Payan absolutely stunning, as well as the larger village of Khumjung which was so obviously benefiting from the school financed by the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. My goal of getting to EBC was achieved and it would have to be one of the highlights, not for its views, but for its significance in mountaineering history. My guide Lakpa Sherpa was very insightful and reliable and his company Sherpa Expedition and Trekking made things really easy in regards to the organizational side of things, as well as providing me with a Nepalese link when dealing with with locals along the trek in various teahouses and so forth. My thanks must go to Sherpa Expedition and Trekking and the young man Ram who helped organize everything from Kathmandu. Also, my guide Lakpa Sherpa who helped make the trek a memorable one.
