Jiri Everest base camp trekking starts at low altitude allowing enough time to get well acclimatized until one arrives to the Everest base base camp 5,364m from the sea level. Everest base camp itself is so expressive that every adventure people would like to experience the mountaineering insights. Jiri Everest base camp trekking offers not only sufficient time to well acclimatized but also it provides sights of beautiful landscape, different ethnic people to meet along the trail and two passes to cross of above 3000 m. So the trekking along the Jiri to Everest base camp offers ample opportunity to explore and enjoy the culture, flora and fauna of the lower Everest region.
In 22 Days long Everest base camp trekking itinerary through Jiri was 24 days long trekking but now since the road is extended two days further to Bhandar thus, we directly drive off to Bhandar from Kathmandu and our trekking to Everest base camp starts. So now we better say, Bhandar- Everest base camp trekking instead of Jiri Everest base camp trek. While starting trekking to Everest base camp from Bhandar, you need around 1 week more holiday than flying to Lukla and start trekking to base camp but you will explore more and experience the different landscape and more chances to see and meet different ethnic people who resides in the lower belt of Everest region. So we can say the Bhandar Everest base camp trekking is culturally and naturally very worthy to trek. And those who are more concerned about altitude sickness can opt this trekking route. Before getting into the Khumbu valley you will have two high passes of Lamjura Pass of 3,530m and Taksindu Pass of 3070m. While trekking into the lower Everest region you will pass through the forest, small villages enjoying the view of holy mountain “ Numbur Himal” 6,959 m, and you can see the Mt. Everest from Phurteng village, which is around 1 hr further from Junbesi. And on the 3rd day of trekking when you arrive to Ringmu village the trail from Salleri meets there and now you are following the route of Salleri Everest Base Camp Trekking.
Since Jiri Everest base camp trekking was very popular once upon a time, many well facilitated tea houses were built along the route and still they do exist but with less tourists.
