The trekking in to Everest from Jiri is a historic trekking journey follows the extraordinary, original route to Everest Base Camp and other trails of the region, the trail was made famous by the Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay when they got summit on Everest in May, 1953, for the first time in the history of the Everest Expedition, The trail visits scenic, fertile hills and valleys up to the mountain landscape of the Khumbu region and the climax is arriving at the foot of the world’s highest mountain, the closest we can get you without being a mountain climber. The surrounding natural paradise of unparalleled Himalayan beauty is a favorite of trekkers from around the globe, the spectacular location where history was made provides a direct view of the legendary Khumbu Icefall and a thrilling feeling like nothing else in the Himalaya.

Jiri Everest Base Camp trek experience will also take you to one of the best viewpoint on earth, the Kala patthar (4250 m, 13,945 ft), with an unequalled view of Everest and nearby mountains, and below the peaks is the Khumbu Glacier and picturesque valley, In fact, along the whole Everest trek, you will be treated to tremendous Himalayan scenery with majestic peaks including Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nupste, Pumori, Thamserku, Kangde, and many more.
