Jiri EBC

Overview

The trek from Jiri to the Everest Base Camp is to walk in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary when he conquered the mountain back in 1953 long before the mountain airstrip at lukla was built.One real benefit of taking the longer route in is the fantstic alpine like scenary you experience along the way towards Lukla.Another benefit is that there are far less trekkers and at times you can believe you have the Himalayas to yourself.Most people who trek this route get a real satisfaction of starting at the begining and seeing it through to the end.

This trek is likely to appeal to people who enjoy more remote settlements and different cultures on the way to reaching the ultimate goal of E.B.C. where they are rewarded by some fantastic high mountain views of Mt. Everest-8848m, Cho Oyu-8153m, Lhotse-8516m and Makalu-8463m.
