About the Trek

 Jiri To Everest Base Camp Trek, Before the establishment of the Airport in Lukla which eventually now is deemed the starting point for the trekkers to Everest base camp, it used to be an arduous journey for peoples in the past as it involved hiking for a week in the countrysides of the Solu-Khumbu region. From Lukla, the journey starts following the Everest camp through the towns of Phadking, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pheriche, and Gorak Shep before arriving at Everest Base Camp arranged on the south side of the mountain.

Jiri To Everest Base Camp Trek is for the ones who have been searching for a lengthy visit in the open country of Himalayas and a more noteworthy presentation to the genuine activities of the Sherpa individuals and their way of life, untainted by the more famous traveler course that will be experienced later on the trip. The Jiri variation is the alternatives to avoid the flight of Lukla due to the unpredictable climate of the place.

The highlight of the Jiri To Everest Base Camp Trek incorporates the main week spent predominantly in the Solu Khumbu area among flawless terraced farmlands, woodlands, and the wonderful Dudh Koshi River. A large portion of the Sherpa individuals live in this district so hope to experience the benevolent cordiality of local people while you find out about their way of life and customs as you gradually adapt to the high elevation.

Finally, you will be welcomed with the surreal and breathtaking scenarios of Everest base camp and the surrounding peaks as you ascend your ways up to the valley of Khumbu and towards the camp. This trip ( Jiri To Everest Base Camp Trek )  will end at this point helping you connect every dots in a rational fashion and helping you understand how this journey was beautiful for you in every way.

Testimonials

I had the privilege of meeting Sujan in 2013 along the Annapurna circuit. When you meet someone incredible, it’s impossible to forget them. Despite just meeting him randomly along the trail, he made a very positive impression on my wife and me, who think fondly of our conversations and interactions. He has a wealth of wisdom and experience, not just in the mountains but in interacting with people all over. He’s got an unquenchable heart for people and his country, which he shares well with anyone in his company. When we do go back, he will be one of those people we must meet again. It’s not a surprise that he has started a reputed guiding organization. It’s about time! I would highly recommend Sujan and would even provide a back guarantee for anyone who does not have a stellar experience with him.
