Skip a scary flight to and from Lukla for your Everest Base camp trek in Nepal. The trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp begins at Kinja via Jiri taking a local jeep or bus transport from Kathmandu.

This trek is set up for great preparation of acclimatization before you reach out at a high altitude of 5545 meters. This trek is a relatively easy trek on the downhills and a bit challenging at the higher elevation in terms of the altitudes.

To complete the journey, you need to be prepared to walk at least 4-5 hours a day.

The trail takes us to the beautiful low lands to high alpine terrain through breathtaking scenery. It's impossible not to think about the mountaineers of old who forged not only the way up Everest but the trekking trails which are now world-famous.
