Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

Jiri is a trailhead of several trekking routes of Everest Region. It is a municipality of Dolakha District Nepal located 6,250 feet above from the sea level. Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is also known as classic route to Everest. Of course, you can ride from Kathmandu to Jiri. However, narrow roads may take about 6-8 hours ride to arrive in Jiri. In fact, it is a the footstep of the two legends – Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa who passed through Jiri before climbing Mt. Everest in 1953. Basically, Jiri route to Everest Base Camp Trek is quite longer than Lukla route. Although, it is not extreme challenging trek, Jiri to Everest Base Camp route needs to acquire professional guides and the travelers should be physically and mentally fit. Base camp can be reached from Jiri route passing by Buddhists Monastery, Alpine Forest, Glacier, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions.
