The Everest Base Camp trek via Jiri is longer than the classical EBC trek. Because of that, this trek gives you more varieties of views (small rice field terraces, alpine forest and of course mountains), good enough time for acclimatization and the possibility of meeting different authentic societies. This region, at the foot of the highest mountain in the world, offers you some breathtaking views. The Everest area is located northeast of Kathmandu. This is a rather challenging trek for which a good basic fitness is required. Experience in mountain hiking is not needed. We overnight in lodges along the trail.
If required, we can cater for you to have a longer stay in Nepal after the trek, or travel to another place from Kathmandu.
