“Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience.”

Unquestionably, Mt. Everest is the epitome of adventure and popularity when it comes to trekking in Nepal’s Himalaya. Stretching far and wide the Himalayan consist many high soaring mountains but none of them are widely well-known as the majestic Mt. Everest which also is prideful stature of Nepal. Hence, a trek to the Everest Base Camp has become a dream goal for many travel enthusiasts and trekkers from all over the globe.Among other various routes, our Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri is truly a one of a kind trip on its own which lets travelers to explore the classic Himalayan trail previously used by the famous mountaineers who successfully reached the summit of Mt. Everest for the first time in 1953 AD. Starting with a drive to Jiri, trekkers begin their trekking experience by heading towards Shivalaya, Ramechhap. Following a densely forested trail through enchanting hill areas, we trek further to Bhandar and then trek to Sete. The night sky seemingly will look more beautiful and trail takes us higher to Junbesi village which is located at a high altitude of 2,700 meters above sea level. Now we make a short descend down to Nunthala and later to Kharikhola. Again, here after, we start ascending up and go past through Surke village to reach Phakding on our tenth day of the trek. Until now the risk of getting High Altitude Sickness was pretty low but as we gain more altitude/elevation each day from this point onward, we must remain cautious about our health. Keeping oneself hydrated is highly beneficial in order to remain unaffected by the altitude. After reaching Phakding, we start following the traditional trek route used by most of the trekkers wanting to visit the EBC via flight to Lukla airport. Carrying our bags, we cross several windy high suspension bridges and arrive at Namche Bazaar where we are scheduled to acclimatize the next day. Next, we visit the stunning Gokyo Lake and Gokyo-Ri for a spectacular panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks. Along with that, we cross the Chola Pass (5,368m) and march our way towards the ostentatious EBC. Take selfies, photos till your heart content and then we will trek back down to Lukla via Lobuche, Pangboche and Namche Bazaar. Lastly, we end our trek by taking a flight back to Kathmandu city. Likewise, we highly recommend that trekkers who wish to go for our 26 days Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri should possess an above average physical capability so that they can walk through treacherous rough terrains at high altitudes without much difficulty. Additionally, Spring and Autumn seasons are the most preferred trekking seasons for doing this trek.
