Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek

This trek takes about three weeks unless you fly in as well as out of Lukla. It reaches a significant height of 5545m at kala pattar, a small peak offering fine views of Mt. Everest. Although the final part of the trek is through essentially uninhabited areas, small lodges operate during the trekking season so itís quite suitable for trekkers. Everybody has heard of Mt. Everest and thatís the reason why the Everest Base Camp trek is popular. The trek has a number of stunning attractions; not least of these is being able to say youíve visited the highest mountain in the world. In addition thereís the spectacular scenery and the outgoing Sherpa people of the Solu Khumbhu region where Mt Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are.

The trek starts in Nepali speaking Hindu lowlands and ends in the Tibetan-Buddhist highland where the Sherpas are renowned for their enterprise, hard work, civic responsibility and devotion to the practice of Buddhism. In their often inhospitable land, the potato, a relatively recent introduction, is the main crop, but these days mountaineering and trekking are the major backbone of the Sherpa economy. More than half the population in the region is now involved with tourism, and Namche Bazaar looks more like an alpine resort than a Sherpa village.
