This journey follows the same route that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa followed in 1953 to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Tengboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep are a few of the Everest region villages that are always going to provide you with breathtaking views of mountains like Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Cho-Oyu and many others.


On this trek, trekkers will have the chance to explore and enjoy the natural landscapes of both hilly and the Himalayan regions. In addition to these fabulous natural landscapes, trekkers will also gain insight into different local communities, culture, people, and their way of life. Most of the time on this trek, trekkers will come across Sherpa people. They are the locals in the majority of regions, and their gracious hospitality has always enchanted their hearts.

The trek from Jiri to Everest base camp is one of the longest and toughest journeys. Most people who attempt this route are highly dedicated trekkers who want to experience actual adventure and experience the thrill of accomplishment. This is a hard journey that is very certain to put your physical and mental abilities to the test. So, before beginning this adventure, we highly suggest you be dedicated and well-prepared.
