Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

Classic route to Everest

Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

US$1500

per person

Also known as the classic long 22-day trek, Everest trek through Jiri is an unpredictable and challenging trek. The Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek requires extensive hikes from rocky hills to stone village ways that make it more suitable for physically fit, healthy, and adventurous trekkers. The trail was first followed by Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa while successfully ascending the Mt. Everest which makes the way classic and traditional in its own way.

Overview

Like any other trek that involves the Everest region, the Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek starts from a full day drive from Kathmandu to Bhandara via Jiri. The busy and lively environment of Kathmandu loses its charisma in comparison to the peace and greenery of the place. Slow leisure hikes take you through enigmatic places of Shivalaya, Bahandara, Set, Junbeshi, Nunthala, Bupsa, Ghat. Since professionals constructed the trail, you get enough time to get used to the Himalaya climate which makes you feel safe and rested throughout the trek.

This classic route to Everest is an opportunity to mingle with the Sherpa way of life and be familiar with their culture and traditions, visit monasteries in Tengboche and Pangboche and walking through Everest Base Camp through Kala Patthar. Not to forget, the Sagarmatha National Park that is also listed as one of the UNESCO world heritage site rich in diversity of flora and fauna add up to the highlights of Everest trek from Jiri. From the top of Kala Patthar, you can relish at the scene of Nuptse, Everest, Amadablam, and Lhotse. Hardly any trek can overcome the scenic experience that this trek provides. Hence, the Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek gives you the perfect Himalayan experience and peace of mind in the end.

Important Note

Your safety is of paramount concern while traveling with Peregrine Treks and Expedition. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary; however, since this adventure entails traveling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, the health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.

Please note that often the Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Lukla airport, as this can happen at the end of the trek! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter rescue in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have a few days of your buffer days left then you may even engage yourself in optional activities that can be arranged by Peregrine Treks and Expedition upon request. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc.

Dingboche 2nd acclimatization day

Dingboche is a popular stop for trekkers and climbers headed to Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam or Imja Tse. The village is beautiful with an array of fields enclosed by stone walls to protect barley, buckwheat and potatoes from the cold wind and grazing animals. We spend a day at Dingboche for acclimatization. We take day hikes to either Nagarjun Hill or Chukkhung Valley for great views of Makalu, Lhotse, Chalotse, Tawache and Ama Dablam. Included meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
13

Dingboche to Lobuche (4940 m/16207 ft) 7 km, 5-6 hrs

We start the day with a gradual climb to Duglha at the end of the terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. From here, we climb up a steep trail to Chupki Lhara, where we find an array of stones with prayer flags used as memorials to Scott Fischer (American mountaineer) and 10-time Everest submitter Babu Chiri Sherpa (Nepali mountain guide) who perished on a mission to climb Everest. Next, we continue to the Khumbu Glacier moraine and find ourselves facing several great peaks - Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur Himal. The trail then eases off as we follow the valley to Lobuche. Overnight in Lobuche. Included meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
14

Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5,170 m/16,961ft), visit Everest Base Camp (5,364 m/17,594 ft): 13km, 6-7 hours

We take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come across the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. The path from here can be misleading; hence, it is important that we follow our lead Sherpa diligently. The walk is strenuous due to thin air in the high altitude. We pass through rocky dunes, moraine and streams before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Upon reaching the Everest Base Camp, we see tents of mountaineers that stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. We get back to Gorak Shep for a good night's rest. Overnight in Gorak Shep. However, the sunset view from Kala Patthar is more admirable than the sunrise view, so it is recommended that we visit Kala Patthar today during sunset. As the setting sun's rays strike the snow-capped mountains, the resulting scenery is incredible. Therefore, for those trekkers who wish to continue to Kala Patthar today instead of the next day please inform your guide and he/she will coordinate accordingly. Included meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
15

Gorekhshep to Kalapather (5545 m/16961 ft) and Pheriche (4288 m/14070 ft) 16 km, 7-8 hrs

We prepare for an early morning departure, amid pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C). Plus, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself. But, it is upon reaching Kala Patthar that we get to see 360 degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest. We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Pheriche for a good night's rest. Those participants who will visit Everest Base Camp today will have an early breakfast to start early as Everest base camp hike takes longer than the hike at Kala Patthar. After returning to Gorak Shep, both the groups will have lunch together; afternoon time is taken to descend down to Pheriche for a good night's rest. Included meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
16

Pheriche to Namche (3440 m/11280 ft) 20 km, 7-8 hrs

We trek down through the hillside blanketed by rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the prayer-flag festooned bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, our trail follows the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through pine forests. In the forest, we may come across colorful pheasants and mountain goats. The path eventually reaches Sansa from where we can enjoy views of Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Nuptse mountains. We also pass winding trails then through a forest before reaching Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar. Included meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
17

Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,800m/9,186ft): 6-7 hours

The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk cautiously as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries, the trail becomes more level and natural. After our arrival in Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. Overnight in Lukla. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
18

Lukla to Kathmandu by flight

We catch an early morning flight to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. After reaching Kathmandu, we can take a rest or do some souvenir shopping. If we want to explore any other areas of Kathmandu, we may do that today. Our guides can help you with both souvenir shopping or sightseeing. There will be a farewell dinner in the evening to celebrate the successful completion of our journey. Overnight in Kathmandu. Included meals: Breakfast
