CLASSIC EVEREST TREK(JIRI-EVEREST BASE CAMP)

The Classic Everest Trek (Jiri to Everest Base camp)  follows the original walk-in route used by the first climbers bound for Everest. 

Crossing the grain of the countryside, the trek is demanding and at times a little frustrating, with long climbs and knee-bashing descents. The route, now designated part of the Great Himalaya Cultural Trail, is full of fascinating sights and cultural interests. Even before the boots are laced up, there is a spectacular drive to Jiri. You’ll soon see why the trek is a classic: superb terraced hillsides, warm riverbanks, plentiful birdlife, dense exotic forests, picture-postcard villages, sweeping vistas from high passes, and monasteries at Thupten Choling near Junbesi and at Trakashindu. Trekkers do set out alone to do this route, but it’s unwise these days to be completely alone.

Otherwise having a guide, Poter-guide or a porter or two is well worthwhile on this sometimes lonely route. Lodgings and food are a little more basic than above Lukla and there's no queueing for Dal Bhat and other goodies. It’s an attractive proposition for those with bags of time. There is no chance of being delayed Inbound by a canceled flight. Don’t get too smug, though, as road journeys in Nepal do not always run to a Swiss cuckoo clock routine either.

Guest House.

This is the first of the two days set aside for "acclimatization". Health experts recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. We either spend the day taking a day's hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or relaxing and exploring Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region.

5 to 6 hours.
Guest House.

The trek continues along the rushing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi with magnificent views of the mountains. We’ll have trekked to an altitude of 3,860 m upon reaching Tengboche. Inside the monastery are incredibly ornate wall hangings, a 20-foot sculpture of Buddha, and the musical instruments and robes of the Lamas. The group will be taken to observe a prayer ceremony either in the evening or in the morning depending on how the trekking goes this day.

4 to 5 hours.
Guest House.

This stage is short, but as mentioned many will be doing it in the afternoon. The last hill into Dingboche is where the altitude often bites. Beware of too much activity on this first night. those merely strolling up from Pangboche should be fine. Leaving upper the routes heads to the village of Somare (4010m) and then Orsho; both have lodged. Later the path divides; the left path goes up to Pheriche. the trailheads around to a bridge, before a steep climb to the village of Dingboche (4410m), which has quite a few very good lodges.

3 to 4 hours.
Guest House.

It's advisable to have another acclimatization day off before going higher. The best option is to hike up the valley to Chukkung (4730m) and on towards Island Peak (Imja Tes). Above Dingboche is Nagkartshang Gompa (allow 2-3hrsfor an energetic but short trip). or head to Pheriche for the HRA afternoon lecture on altitude sickness. The trail for Chhukung leaves Dingboche for the cluster of Bibr (4570m) is surrounded by fabulous Peaks: Taboche, the wall of Nuptse and Lhotse and the tremendous fluted cirque liking the Amphu Laptsa pass and Ama Dablam. Chukkung has several lodges and is a popular spot for that climbing island peak. Well acclimatized trekkers can head up a grassy slope towards the peak of Chukkung Ri (5550m) to view Makalu.

5 to 6 hours.
Guest House.

After breakfast, we start with an easy walk towards Dugla. Next, we trek up the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier, and then pass through the boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend 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 (Nepalese mountain guide) who perished on a mission to climb Everest. The trail then continues to the Khumbu Glacier moraine and we find ourselves facing several great peaks - Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur Himal. Overnight in Lobuche.

6 to 7 hours.
Guest House.

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.

7 to 8 hours.
Guest House.

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 see360 degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest. We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Lobuche for a good night's rest. Overnight in Pangboche.

6 to 7 hours.
Guest House.

From Pangboche we retrace our steps down to the Imja Khola and up through the forest to Tengboche. If interested, we can also visit nuns at the Tengboche monastery. After lunch at Tengboche, we continue through the hillside blanketed by rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, our trail follows the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests before reaching Sansa. We keep a lookout for wildlife such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc., while passing through the forest. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

5 to 6 hours.
Guest House.

This is our last day of trekking as we return to Lukla where the trek began. We enjoy this time to reflect on the trek as a group and the personal achievement of all those who took part. The afternoon is free, so you can wander about, relax and enjoy a hot shower! In the evening, have a few celebratory drinks and dance with your trek mates.

Jiri-Everest Base Camp Trek!

Value for Money

My recent trek to the Everest region was a very memorable one which I would recommend to anyone with an inkling of adventure in their veins. I went with a guide from Jiri to EBC, Gokyo, and back. I would highly recommend doing the Jiri to Lukla part of the track as you get to view a much more diverse range of cultures and landscapes, than if you started straight from Lukla. Also, acclimatization is helped by starting from the Jiri end of the track. I particularly found the town of Payan absolutely stunning, as well as the larger village of Khumjung which was so obviously benefiting from the school financed by the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. My goal of getting to EBC was achieved and it would have to be one of the highlights, not for its views, but for its significance in mountaineering history. My guide Lakpa Sherpa was very insightful and reliable and his company Sherpa Expedition and Trekking made things really easy in regards to the organizational side of things, as well as providing me with a Nepalese link when dealing with with locals along the trek in various teahouses and so forth. My thanks must go to Sherpa Expedition and Trekking and the young man Ram who helped organize everything from Kathmandu. Also, my guide Lakpa Sherpa who helped make the trek a memorable one.
