Lukla Airport is the contemporary gateway to any trekking adventure in Everest region of Nepal. Before the construction of this airport lots of trekkers and climbers used the old route via Jiri for such a remarkable journey. Jiri Everest Base Camp Trek is also called as Everest Base Camp Classical Trek. You will be hypnotized by the reverie feeling that you gain while embarking on this trail to Everest Base Camp (5364 m). Follow the trail once trekked and used by legends of Nepal mountaineering. If you wish to observe the lower belts of Khumbu region and want to understand the culture of people living in lower Khumbu then this is an ideal trail to walk in Nepal.
Jiri Everest Base Camp Trek journey starts with bus drive to Jiri which is located in east from Kathmandu. During autumn and spring season one can take bus drive directly up to Salleri. From this place the walking journey starts. The most ravishing part of this trekking in Nepal is the wonders of Mother Nature and multiethnic people villages. Unlike the contemporary Everest Base Camp Trek route the trail showcases plenty of green lush forests, streams, waterfalls and villages. Places like Nunthala, Bupsa and Surke will be on the way before reaching Phakding to meet the modern EBC trek trail. On the way rhododendron, pines, magnolia and many more vegetations can be experienced. Villages of Rai and Sherpa community along with their terraced farmlands endow different understanding of rural Nepalese people residing near Mt. Everest. Once you have trekked for more than three days you will reach the Phakding. We will follow the normal modern route towards Everest Base Camp from this place. Please visit our Everest Base Camp Trek package in our website for more information from this place. While returning from the trip we will take the Lukla route. Scenic mountain flight from world’s most extreme airport to Kathmandu will be our last action of this journey in Nepal.
