Everest Base Camp Trek from Jiri is the original trail to reach Everest Base Camp, way back when there was no airport in Lukla. The trail from Jiri to Everest Base Camp is used by many expedition teams to reach the summit of the Himalayas, most notable in history, includes Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa. We will be spending the first eight days trekking through beautiful villages, thundering rivers, ascending and descending the trail and acclimatizing our body to reach Lukla and further. Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek is nearly a month long holiday in the Himalayas to explore the beauty of these silvering mountains. Combined with the Everest Base Camp Trek from Lukla, the Everest Base Camp trek from Jiri is an ideal option to spend about a month-long vacation in the Himalayas.
