Everest trekking via Jiri is the best way to do an Everest trek following the footsteps of the old approach route followed by Everest expeditions from the 1950's through the 70's. Everest trekking via Jiri provides a good opportunity to see the densely populated middle hills and the high altitude splendour of the Khumbu, or Everest region.

Everest trekking via Jiri starts from a place called Jiri (1905m). The route for Everest trekking via Jiri heads eastward through the lovely forested hills of Solu and over the 3530m Lamajura Pass. Monasteries and uninterrupted mountain views lie ahead. The portion of the trekking from Jiri to Lukla is often less crowded and therefore much better trekking country. We cross the Lamjura La, and Thaksindo before descending towards the raging river of the Dudh Koshi. We follow the “Dudh Koshi river” northwards through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main Everest trail below Lukla. By now you will have had time to adjust to life on the trail and with the benefits of increased fitness make the ascent to Namche Bazaar. Once in the Khumbu region the mountain views improve with every step: Kwangde,Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam ,the "horse saddle" of Kantega and of course the summit of Everest itself can be seen from Everest trekking via Jiri.

Everest trekking via Jiri goes through Namche and the trek follows the Gokyo Lake to the Everest Base Camp crossing the 5330m. Cho La Pass, and then to Lukla. The early morning mountain breathtaking flight from Lukla to Kathmandu provides an unforgettable happy ending to the Everest trekking via Jiri.
