Namaste Nepal Trekking & Research Hub presents one of the most unique ways to trek around Everest reason of Nepal; The typical Route to Everest Base Camp, used by sir Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Sir Edmund Hillary, and other world-famous mountaineers back in the fifties to eighties. This typical trail is still renowned for its majestic views of Mt. Everest, Beautiful Farming villages, Sherpa monasteries, Their hospitability, and deeply rooted culture and tradition. Myths on yeti also arise from the Khumbu region and you will hear plenty of them from the locals. You have a chance to do some research and absorb how the early expedition team went to summit the world's highest mountains and other significant peaks in the Everest region with hundreds of porters and support staff. This will make you feel grateful to them and their brave work because after they started to fly to Lukla and lots of improvements on the climbing technique and types of equipment the expeditions are much easier; that was the real expedition.

Typical Everest Base Camp Trek, Without Flying to Lukla., maybe the best reason to avoid the hassle of flight cancellation, weather changes, flight delays, and or the landing at the most dangerous airport in the world. Another good reason is you will reduce the risk of Altitude sickness. AMS is the main reason why trekkers are flown back to Kathmandu by helicopter even without reaching base camp. This has nothing to do with your condition or your age. It is because your body doesn’t get enough time to acclimatize your body. When you start your trekking from Jiri your body gets used to the altitude.

We will start our Typical journey from an exciting ride to Bhandara via Jiri. The first week of the trail passes through beautifully terraced farmlands, forests, and classic middle-hill countryside. It offers simple amenities and ample time to acclimatize while encountering the culture, customs, and lifestyle of the friendly and hospitable Hindu and Buddhist communities. The Everest Base Camp trek via Jiri trail begins at an altitude of 1800 m and crosses numerous ridges: dropping low to rivers at around 1500 m and ascending passes over 3500 m. Rest and acclimatization days are taken at Namche Bazar, the tourist capital of the Khumbu region, and at Gokyo,

Beyond Namche, the ‘up and down’ trail continues to rise while night-time temperatures drop and you move deeper into the mountains. Beyond Dole, the villages become smaller– and the going tougher yet more dramatic. Vegetation now becomes more stunted and eventually gives way to rock, ice, and pure breathtaking glacial landscapes. This will lead us to the beautiful Gokyo valley. We will take a final acclimatization day at Golyo. Then slow walks up to Gokyo Ri, one of the most beautiful mountain view spot in the entire Everest reason. Then your trek continues through stunning Chola Pass which will leads us to Lobuche and Gorak Shep. A final push to Everest base camp and after spending a cold night at Gorak Shep, an early morning trek up Kala Patthar should offer stupendous views that include the peaks of Pumori, Everest, and the South Col, Nuptse, and Lhotse, set amongst numerous other ranges.

Trekking back to Lukla from Everest base camp is all the way down! Seems short and easy which normally can be done in about 3 or 4 days. If you have limited time and or don’t like to trek back the same way you can choose NNTR Helicopter to fly back from Everest Base Camp. It will also be another Lifetime experience. But if you wish to take more challenging “stay off the beaten path” and you are seeking real adventure for the more challenging route that crosses the most famous mountain passes in the world, you definitely need to consider NNTR- Everest High Passes Trek- 20 days
Jiri Everest Base Camp is a journey in the mystical and mythical land of the Himalayas. You encounter Pass, numerous massifs, Himalayan range, wild animals, aesthetic landscape, and the heart-touching story of people or lifestyle. You may be delighted to seize the momentum in your cameras.
This whole trip will always stay at the bottom of your heart and you will always cheer these memories and want to make more of them, happy trekking.

For the Everest Base Camp Trek, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are the best months for High altitude treks in Nepal. The air, freshly washed by the monsoon rain, is crystal clear, stunning mountain scenery, and the weather is still comfortably warm. Although many trekking trips into the lower altitude can be taken during winter and monsoon too, but the cold can be bitter and dangerous at the high altitude, trekking trails above 4000 meters are usually blocked by the heavy snowfall. And the trails can be slippery due to the monsoon rain, Nepal’s famous Juka (leeches) are an un-pleasant feature of the wet season, but with care, trekking can still be possible and there are certainly fewer trekkers on the trail.
