jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

Jiri to Everest base camp trek is the typical trekking routes which were used by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary while climbing the Mt. Everest for the first time in 1,953. The trek to Everest base camp is one of the most popular trekking routes where we can see some exhilarating view of the natural beauty of mountains and vegetation and animals and cultural beauty. The route from Khumbu region offers the beautiful green forest with rare wild animals and birds and the snow-capped mountains. Mt. Lhotse 8,516, Mt. Everest 8,848m, Mt. Nuptse 7,861m, Mt. Ama Dablam 6,812m, Mt. Pumori 7,161m, Mt. Thamserku 6,623m,

Mt. Kangtega 6,782m, etc. are the soaring mountains that we may enjoy while trekking in this region. We have two options while trekking to this region. One goes from Lukla and the other goes through Jiri. The trekking route from Jiri is comparatively longer than that of Lukla, which goes through the uphill and highlands. So the trekkers should possess adequate time along with the sound body to trek through this route. The way goes passing several alpine forests and the ever-flowing river alongside. Despite its long distance, we can enjoy the panoramic beauty of natural resources while trekking in this region.

We need to travel through many settlements, especially of Sherpa community. We can enjoy the faithful and affable behavior of the local inhabitants to the trekkers during the whole trekking session. The route is equally popular for its cultural beauty. We can notice many monasteries and their prayer flags on the way to our target if the time favors us, we will definitely visit these monasteries to explore more about the art and craft of Sherpa community. The Buddhist prayer flags are hanged throughout the route. The high assessment of  Everest base camp is Kala Patthar 5,545m. and Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking from where we can see a close view of Mt. Everest. This section is less crowded as most people fly Lukla and walk only the high portion of the land. Only the fit and fine trekkers with an enthusiasm for natural beauty will trek through this route.
