Jiri Everest Base Camp Trek

The route to Everest Base Camp is probably the most famous mountain trek in the world. Every spring and autumn the trail fills with awestruck walkers who wind their way through friendly Sherpa villages. Porters and yaks ferrying equipment seem minute compared to the towering heights of Ama Dablam, Kangtega and Tawoche. You pass through the famous Tengboche monastery which has sublime views of the surrounding mountains. Base Camp sits astride glacial moraine beneath the unforgiving Khumbu Icefall, and above it all the mighty Everest

3 hours 2400 Easy
05 Shivalaya – Bhandar

There are a couple of route options today and if time permits we will visit the Swiss cheese factory and Gompa (Tibetan monastery) at Thodung. This is a very pleasant day on the trail with lush forests and mountain views combining to create just the right amount of photo opportunities to keep us going. Gauri Shankar, on the Tibetan border, is one of the main mountains we can see from the pass; it was once thought to be the highest mountain in the world!

7 hours 2713 Easy
06 Bhandar – Sete

Another great day! Our trail wanders through the fertile Likhu Khola (river) valley passing many tea stops on the way.

5 hours 3575 Easy
07 Sete – Junbesi

Today we crest the Pamjung La (pass) which doesn't offer any great mountain views. So we quickly move on through Tragdobuk to one of the major trading centres of the region, Junbesi.

7 hours 3530 Easy
08 Junbesi – Ringmo

We have a short trek today that allows us time to go and explore one of the largest working Gompas in the region, Thubten Chholing Gompa with 150 monks and 350 nuns in residence. The trail up to the Sallung Danda (ridge) is through prickly-leafed oak, a very common tree in this part of the world, to a point where we will see Everest in the distance if we're lucky!

4 hours 3048 Easy
09 Ringmo – Jubing

We now climb the Tragsindho La which is marked by shorten (memorials), mani walls (prayer stone walls), and prayer flags. Below us is the Tragsindho Gompa but we will not stop. We are now in Sherpa and Rai country that are frequently recruited into the Gurkhas as they are a brave and loyal people.

6 hours 3072 Easy
10 Jubing – Surkhe

Today we descend into the Solu Khumbu region proper and are rewarded with views of Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang as the trail seems to always be going up or down.

6 hours 2347 Easy
11 Surkhe – Phakding

We now enter an easier region to walk in as we follow first meet and then follow the well worn trail from Lukla to Phakding. We immediately notice the difference in the lodges which are bigger and fancier than anything seen so far - and of course all the trekkers that we pass on the trail. It is great to be walking fit and a little acclimatised as we pass then huffing and puffing arrivals!

5 hours 2695 Easy
12 Phakding - Namche Bazaar

Criss-cross several bridges over the Dudhkosi River we then begin the long climb up to Namche Bazaar. During the climb there are views of Everest through pine forest.

A day to explore the views around Tengboche and to visit the stunning monastery. This World Heritage site was originally built in 1916 but was destroyed by an earthquake in 1934. The rebuilt Gompa was then again destroyed in 1989 by fire, but the new buildings are true to the original designs and form an idyllic setting for the 30 or so young monks who live here.

All day 3860 Easy

Onwards towards Everest! A downhill section to Pangboche (the highest year-round settlement) takes us through stone walled villages to Dingboche where there is a high altitude clinic.

6 hours 4343 Easy
17 Dingboche – Lobuche

This is what trekking is all about, amazing views, laboured breathing, and the prospect of a comfortable camp with some delicious food inside you. Take your time and pace yourself, rushing here will reduce your reserves for later stages, and why not stop and take an extra few pictures anyway?
