Trekking "The Everest Expedition Route" From Jiri To Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar in Nepal.

Starting with a 6 hour (188km/118miles) drive to Jiri (2,100m/6,888ft), this trekking to Everest Base Camp, follows the traditional route taken by the early Everest expeditions and still serves as main artery to the roadless Sagarmatha (Everest) region. Known as the Solu-Khumbu it is the home of the Sherpas. This relatively tiny society of 8,000 people is the best known and most admired of all Nepal's ethnic groups. According to their oral history Sherpas migrated to high valleys south of Mt. Everest from eastern Tibet about 450 years ago, hence the name Shar-pa, "peoples of the east." Many families along this route have converted their homes into trekkers' lodges catering to foreign hikers. Although a popular trekking route the Everest area is visited by only some 8,000 visitors each year - a fraction of the number that visits the Annapurna region. Trekking through the Sherpa villages we share many of their hearths and enjoy their generous hospitality. Trekking in from Jiri has the advantage of helping you to acclimatize en route. This trek is about 190km/120miles long and the total altitude gained on the innumerable uphill portions totals 9000m - much higher even than Mt. Everest! After Namche we follow the main trail to base camp (as per the 14-day Close Encounter With Everest itinerary) with all its attraction. A legendary trekking to a legendary destination - Everest base camp in Nepal.

Moderate to strenuous trekking to Everest base camp starts from 2,100m (6,888ft) to 4,940m (16,200ft) with optional day hikes up to 5,550m (18,200ft). Accommodation in comfortable lodges run by Sherpa families. The trek to Everest base camp starts with a drive from Kathmandu and includes all meals, services of experienced local guide and porters to carry luggage. Clients carry a light day-pack and walk at their own pace.
