Jiri to EBC Trek goes through the historical trail that was used by the pioneer Everest climbers- Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary. The gateway of this trek- Jiri is also known as a little paradise of Nepal. The long journey before meeting the usual route via Lukla, it is helpful for the acclimatization.
Walking from Bhandar, this trek passes several Sherpa communities. The long walk goes through the terraced fields and green hills. Sometimes the trail you walk is rocky and difficult to cross over. The waterfalls and green hill gorges make this trek spectacular. Avoiding Lukla, you join with the main EBC trail in Phakding. From Jorsalle, we walk through the Sagarmatha National Park. The natural diversity is superb with the diverse trees and wild animals. Following the trail via Sherpa capital-Namche Bazaar and Khumjung, Tengboche monastery, Dingbuche, Lobuche and Gorakshep, you trek to the Everest base camp and Kalapatthar. Exploring Sherpa culture and their lifestyle is another amazing thing to do. The views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Ama Dablam, Lobuche peak, Kangtega, Thamserku and others are exciting.
