Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri

Everest base camp trek via Jiri (or Shivalaya; approx. 21 days). It is the "classic" Everest base camp trek, following the original route that climbers used to take to reach Everest area before the airport at Lukla was built. Walking to Everest area from Jiri or Shivalaya will help you to more gradually build up your fitness level and to acclimatise.
After a long drive from Kathmandu we will start trekking from Shivalaya (1767m), enjoying the flora and fauna of the lower to higher hill areas and the scenic villages of Bhandar, Sete, Junbesi, Thubten Chholing, Goyom, Lamjura Bhanjyang, Rinmo and Khari Khola. At Cheplung (close to Lukla) the route will join the Lukla-Everest base camp trail. You will then pass Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dinboche, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, Everest base camp and enjoy the views from Kalapathar which is also the highest point on this trek (around 5550m). This trek gives the opportunity to explore the culture, religion and life style of the people in the lower to higher hills and the Sherpa and other Himalayan people.
