Let’s begin with a classical one. Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri is the vintage trekking trail to reach Mt Everest. It was more popular before the establishment of Lukla Airstrip. Likes of early Mt Everest pioneers like Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary took the same trail to do the impossible task of summiting Mt Everest. 

It is a favorite pick for those looking to have a long, adventurous, and more rewarding journey to Everest Base Camp. You will start with an adventurous bus ride to the beautiful Jiri village by dodging the flight to Lukla. Then from Jiri, you will trek via a peaceful trail to join the regular Everest Base Camp Trek map from Namche Bazaar. Next, you will pass via less frequented villages like Lamjura, Junbesi, Nunthala, Bupsa, etc. And then the journey will continue as ever, like what happens on the standard Mount Everest Base Camp Trek.

Everest Base Camp Trek Via Jiri is a 24-day excursion that you can join if you want to have a longer time in the Everest Region. You’ll retrace the footprints of earlier explorers of Everest to explore the less explored side of the Khumbu Region. Also, you will get enough time to enjoy the madness of the divine home of Mt Everest. 

Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek, old route flowed by tensing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary is best to view trek including mt. Everest with surrounding Himalayas, Sherpa and Tamang villages, monastery. This trek represents Nepal's old trekking trail, and the main get way to Everest base camp by road. Everest base camp trek starts from Kathmandu with 7-8 hrs. of a drive to Jiri.  The trekking trail follows mali danda and down to Shivalaya pass Deurali. We subsequently move through Lamjura to Junbeshi, passing rhododendron forests as we pass Sherpa villages. En route to Nunthala, the next stop, beautiful panoramic views of Everest, Kantega, Thamserku, Mera Peak, et cetera can be seen. From Nunthala, gentle descent to Dudh Koshi River and then climbing through Sherpa and Rai settlements to Bupsa. Moving through Kharte, we enjoy the scenic beauty and drop to Puiyan and the climb to Chauri Kharka. Passing through Jorshalle, we then make our way to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest. Here we acclimatize while observing the Sherpa culture and traditions. The next day we trek to Dole, where we stay overnight and then climb to Machhermo.

You can quickly feel the increase in altitude with a change in vegetation. As we move to Gokyo, the scenic beauty is captivating with turquoise lakes and glaciers. Gokyo lies on the eastern shore of Dudh Pokhari. We rest at Gokyo for a day and take a short excursion to Fifth Gokyo Lake. The views from Gokyo Ri of Everest are considered much better than at Kala Patthar. The trail then moves to Thangna, Zongla, and Gorakshep at 5180m. We stop at Gorakshep and take an excursion to Everest Base Camp the next day. After an early sunrise at Kala Pathar, we move to Periche, which takes about 7 hours. Kala Pathar is the closest site to Everest that offers a panoramic view of Everest, Pumori, Lingtren, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, et cetera. From Periche, we take the trail back to Namche and Lukla on successive days. Our flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu marks the end of the trip.

    Essential Info

     Travel insurance

    When going for a trek to the Everest region, you need to take all types of insurance. It would help if you took all the insurance for your safety. It includes medical insurance and accidental insurance. 

    For the safety of our guests considering the Everest Base Camp Trek, we strongly advise them to get travel insurance. During Everest Base Camp Trekking, you will be experiencing a remote location. Therefore, we will be forced to deploy an airlift to provide you with immediate medical care in an accident or any unforeseen medical emergency (which seldom occurs).

    Until travel insurance or the Passenger commits to pay the fee to pay the costs, rescue providers, particularly emergency evacuation service providers, do not get ready. As a result, travel insurance is essential when walking to Everest's base camp.

    Packing List

    The following is the list of the things and equipment that we will need to carry with us when you are heading on the journey. 

    1. For the upper part of the body

    • Hat: You'll need a nice, wide-brimmed trekking hat to keep the sun off your face. Lightweight, simple to carry, and neck-covering styles are the best. The primary reason for wearing a hat while trekking is to protect yourself from the sun while you're out on the trail.
    • Headlamp: Along with the hat, it is better to carry a headlamp with you during the trek. Headlamps are lights that are worn on a person's head. Due to their hands-free operation, these gadgets are great for trekking and hiking. It's ideal to have your hands free when hiking so you can deal with anything Mother Nature throws at you or pull your stuff. At night, trails can be hard to navigate. These footprints generally incorporate pebbles, tree roots, twigs, and even animals and resemble an uncharted maze. These hazards can be dangerous, and having your hands free allows you to catch yourself, move obstacles, sprint, or fend off an enraged rabbit on the track.
    • Woolen Hat: When you move to higher elevations, you get a high chance of being caught by cold. So, it is suggested to carry a woolen hat with you for your protection. Not every hat is equally suitable for trekking, so it is safer to take a woolen hat; it will be available with you if you need it. 
    • Sun Protecting Hat: Day during your trial can be sunny, and the rays directly showered upon you. It will protect UV rays from entering your skin. We must be more careful regarding our heads and protect the scalp from sunburn and skin cancer. 
    • Sunglasses: As we move towards high altitude, the atmospheric layer becomes thinner, which increases exposure to harmful rays because the capacity to filter these rays becomes less. Therefore, we need to carry sunglasses to protect our eyes from harmful rays.

    2. Body Part

    • Waterproof jackets and trousers: Rain on the path is always possible, especially if you intend to hike between June and September (we strongly advise against walking in the region). We recommend bringing rain gear with you as a precaution, preferably a gore-tex membrane hardshell jacket. An inexpensive pair of waterproof pullovers will typically be enough for pants.
    • T-shirt: It is suggested to wear light clothes during trekking to avoid extreme sweating and discomfort. A t-shirt is best to wear during such trips. 
    • Clothing: Layering is a significant walk component due to the considerable fluctuation in altitude and temperature. You'll be able to quickly adapt to the climate and be comfortable and safe if you can add and remove layers of clothes while trekking. If you intend on hiking during the cooler winter months of December through February, you'll want to bring some extra layers.
    • Gloves: You will need to carry your gloves with you because gloves will help protect your hands from sweat, extreme weather conditions, and other inconvenient situations that may cause discomfort and injury.

    Lower Body Clothing

    • Thermal Inners: Thermal inners are insulators between your body and the surrounding cold air. They trap body heat and prevent heat loss. Use the ones generally made with polyester or give extra comfort and flexibility.
    • Trousers: A full-length pair of trekking trousers provides solid path protection, preventing cuts and scratches from prickly plants, twigs, rocks, and other hazards. This allows you to travel calmly while trekking without the sound of rustling plants and enables you to get near to animals without making a nuisance.
    • Down Jacket: One of the most significant purchases you'll make is a down jacket. On a hiking or climbing journey throughout the journey, having the correct warm, insulating layer may make or break your pleasure level. When you are heading for a trek in the Everest region, You must include a down jacket in your packing list. 

    3. Footwears

    • Trekking Boots: Trekking boots are necessary as they are specifically designed to protect the foot and ankles during long-distance trekking. They are one of the essential items of trekking as they can determine a trekker's ability to walk long distances without injury.
    • Socks: A trekking sock is essential for avoiding blisters. Unlike a weak, stinking cotton sock, a hiking hose will not continually brush against the back of your foot and will give substantial protection from friction caused by your shoe. The socks maintain a constant temperature for the feet. Socks are incredibly soft and comfortable on foot.

    4. Other Types of Equipment for Trekking 

    • Trekking Poles: Trekking poles intersperse your arms and shoulders into the trekking movement, allowing you to use better muscles to force yourself uphill and control your downhill. The result is an expansion in rate without an accumulation in leg soreness.
    • First Aid Kids: First aid kits are a must-have for every trekker. They help you with necessary treatment during the trial. Thus to minimize the risk of infection or injury severity, we must take it with ourselves. A well-stocked kit contains items that treat burns, injuries, scrapes, and cuts.
    • Sleeping Bags: Though we will be staying in hotels and there will be services, still take no risk and carry a sleeping bag with you. If you want the best night's sleep on the trail, it is recommended to take your sleeping bags with you.
    • Personal Bags: When going on an outdoor trek, you want to be sure that you'll be comfortable the entire time. A bag is fundamental if you're hiking a long and challenging walk. The type of trekking backpack you use will significantly impact how pleasant your adventure will be. If you're carrying many goods, you'll need a bag that distributes the weight properly, so you don't get tired soon.

    Altitude Sickness and Prevention

    Altitude sickness refers to symptoms that occur when your body is exposed to a higher elevation for an extended length of time.

    When traveling to higher altitudes, there is a maximum chance of suffering from AMS (Acute mountain sickness).

    When people are traveling and rising or being moved to a higher level fast, altitude sickness is prevalent. The lower the air pressure and oxygen levels are, the higher you climb. Our bodies can handle the change, but it will take time for them to acclimate. Preventing altitude sickness also requires staying hydrated. During your climb, drink plenty of water. Climb at a comfortable speed for you. It's also crucial to remember that even if you're taking acetazolamide, you might still experience altitude sickness. The drug will not help you if you already have symptoms. The only effective cure is to descend to a lower altitude.

    So to prevent AMS, we will take two acclimatization breaks every thousand meters. We will trek at the higher altitude but sleep in, the lower to cure this altitude sickness. If we suffered from acute mountain sickness, we would take rest immediately at the same place. We will drink more liquid to stay hydrated, like soup and water, to energize. If the case starts to get worse, we will have to take rescue by helicopter.

    Passport and Visa

    A passport is the most crucial need when we are out on our trip. We need to take at least one copy of our passport and visa. We will get the access before we arrive. A Nepal visa is required to visit the Everest region. You can receive a ticket on arrival at the main entry points, but if you like to be prepared, you may apply for a Nepal visa ahead of time. Most essential, you must have your passport and two passport-size pictures. You'll also need to obtain a Mountaineering License (Everest climbing permit) from the Tibet Mountaineering Association if you intend to go to the advanced base camp of Everest. 

    Banking and ATM

    Typically our package is enclosed with food and accommodation, so, for personal use, you might need cash. However, there is less chance of getting an ATM. Therefore, you will need to carry some money before heading out for the trek. We have two ATMs on the Everest route, but this might not always work because of the satellite. Lukla and Namche Bazaar are the only two stations on the Everest Base Camp route where ATMs are available.

    Guides, Porters, And Tipping System in Nepal

    Our Everest Base Camp trekking guide porters will be fully insured and knowledgeable about the Everest region journey, not only Everest Base Camp. We have been helping and promoting local people from the beginning of the Everest Region Trek. For your trekking trips in Nepal, we guarantee that we will offer you outstanding guides and skilled porters.

     Local Guides are English-speaking locals who will accompany you on the path for the duration. They won't carry your baggage, but they will be able to answer your questions and provide information about the location as you go. 

    It is always suggested that you take a guide with you. Because when traveling at a high elevation, you might suffer from AMS if you are not much familiarised with treks guide will be very supportive to you. 

    During the journey, porters will carry your luggage for you. They speak very little English and will be unable to comprehend any inquiries you may pose. To help you travel freely, you can take your porter with you to help you carry your things. 

    As for Tipping, It will cost you 10percent of the total cost. This ten percent is further distributed as 60 to the guide and forty to the porter.

    Everest trek food and accommodation

    Travel Tips ( Electricity, Internet, ATM, Luggage, tipping, personal expenses)

    There is no electricity in all those places, so it's better to have your backup. As for backup, we can still use battery and chargers, but you need to pay extra charges for that. In the lodges, there are charging kiosks where you may set your gadgets. But, again, you might have to pay a small fee for the service. So bring extra chargers or a solar charger with you.

    There might not be internet facilities in all places for the internet so that you can use data.

    You might also need to pay additional charges to use the internet facility. The internet connectivity along the trekking path is spotty at best, and it only gets worse as you climb higher. Please don't get caught up in sharing the adventure; instead, try to enjoy it as much as possible.. 

    So it is recommended to have your cash for your expenses. You can use it for electricity, internet, and other additional costs like bakeries and pastries and money for tipping. Because there are no ATMs above Namche Bazar, bring extra cash to spend while walking. On the road, you may require some money to purchase more beverages, food, or amenities such as a hot shower, internet, etc. 

    You ripped extra baggage for free in the hotel's locker room. Each trekker can bring up to 10 kilograms of hiking gear (carried by porters).

    Tipping will not be included in the cost of our EBC trek package because it is required. However, the guide and porter anticipate some. 

    Keep some cash on hand if you want to buy souvenirs, food, or beverages. Other costs, like travel insurance and foreign flight tickets, are not included in our package price. For further details, see our cost includes and exclusions section.

    Lukla flight and cancellation

    We have very unpredictable weather in the Himalayas, so our flight will be unscheduled some of the time. But sometimes, because of the weather, our flight will be delayed or canceled. We will have other options to take a helicopter or postpone for the next time, so better to have added one or two days after the trip to ensure your international flight wouldn't be disturbed. 

    Due to inclement weather, flights from Kathmandu to Lukla/Kathmandu may be delayed or canceled for a day. Even in the finest season, something may happen.

    FAQs

    • Q1. How difficult is Everest base camp trek by land? 

      The walk does not entail any difficult climbing and does not require any prior climbing knowledge, making it accessible to anyone. However, the Jiri variant is somewhat longer than the standard Everest Base Camp Trek, making it slightly more difficult. Expect to walk  15 kilometers per day in 5-6 hours. This is a number that can be attained with some previous preparation and practice treks. For more details on how to train, see our extensive training post.

       

    • You must bring your own sleeping bag because there aren't enough blankets in the lodges or tea houses. We will give you a sleeping bag. 

       

    • Electricity is available everywhere. You can use it to charge your camera and phone. 

       

    • The walk has been designed to allow for adequate acclimatization to the region's higher-than-normal heights. The first week of trekking to Lukla entails numerous days of ascent followed by descent so that you are sufficiently acclimatized by the time you arrive in  Lukla. Because altitude sickness can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, we nevertheless recommend that you educate yourself about the illness and its symptoms before going on the climb.

       

    • The Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek will have the same peak season as the other Everest treks: February to May and September to October. The weather is likely to be stable and dry during these months on either side of summer, making for ideal trekking conditions. We do not recommend trekking during the peak summer months due to the concurrent monsoon season. Winter treks are possible, but some paths may be closed, so it is not advised to trek during the winter. 

       

    • Yes, you can find all kinds of hiking equipment in Nepal, particularly in the Thamel district of Kathmandu, where you can buy or rent whatever you need. On request, we can provide suitable guidance.

       

    • Porters normally carry roughly 20 kilograms and are assigned to every two individuals in a hiking party. Porters may make or break the enjoyment and success of a journey, not least by relieving you of the burden of carrying additional weight at altitude when your body will be working for every ounce of oxygen it requires. It not only helps to alleviate your 

      load, but it also contributes significantly to the local economy by generating work for residents. With a porter, all you'll need is a compact daypack to carry essential supplies like snacks, a sweater, rain gear, and so on. 

       

    • The lodges feature a menu from which you can choose. The foods are clean. However, it is not the same as city foods.

       

    • Regarding drinking water, most places sell bottles of mineral water, but for the sake of the environment, I recommend that you utilize water purification methods, such as water purification medications, and filter machines, This will help to reduce pollution in the environment. 

    • Yes, traveling to Nepal as a single woman is totally safe, and our staff is well-trained in acceptable protocol and behavior.

    • Experience was fantastic

      The trek to Everest Base Camp is amazing and spectacular. Our tour manager, guide, and porters were all selfless, admirable, and even entertaining employees of Mountain Rock  Trek. Among the highlights for me were Namche village, Tengboche monastery, Sherpa cultural villages, Sagarmatha National Park, Everest base camp, and the breathtaking sunrise views from Kalapathar viewpoints. I want to thank you once more for sharing your amazing life experiences with us. The experience was fantastic in every way.
