Everest Trek Via Jiri - 21 Days

Trip Overview

Everest Jiri Trek, although relatively easy compared to some of other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). This is a short trek but very scenic trek offers really superb view of the world's highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and other many snowy peaks.

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. This trek is a great introduction to Sherpa country and its culture with great mountain views, a very popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is best suited for those who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Hi Babu & Team,
"We would like to thank you for the fantastic time we were allowed to experience in your beautiful country on our trek from Jiri to Lukla via Renjo La and Gokyo (highly recommended!). You and your team really care about your customers anytime. The organization and execution of the tour was first class! Thanks also to our very professional guide Sonam who must be truly named as the best mountain guide of the world (extremly caring, great advisor, very funny, profound medical knowledge, great in organising things like changing our air tickets from Lukla to Kathmandu)and our porters Resham and Lila. You could hardly see them without a smile on their face and whenever we needed help they were instantly there - with such kindliness. We were truly in very very good hands! We will never forget our trip to Nepal - definitely a "one in a lifetime experience". - And you made it happen, many thanks for this!"
