Jiri to Everest Base Camp Via Cho-La Pass Trekking 24 days
This 24 days fascinating trip / trek offers an wonderful opportunity to climb kalapathar (5,545m), overlooking the base camp area, superb view of the highest mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu etc, and to interact with the indigenous people. This is considered as the highly praised trekking route to Everest region. It was in 1952 when two renowed figures Sir Edmund Hillary and Mr. Tenzing Sherpa had taken the same route to Mt. Everest. After a seven hours scenic drive to Jiri, we follow spectacular route via Solukhumbu area through the heart of fine Sherpa villages, each village having something new to offer. It offers an ample chance to explore beautiful forest, farming country sides and several monasteries situated at high elevation on the way to Lukla. Once one has passed Lukla, we climb on to Namche, the main trading village of the Khumbu area continuing via Thyangboche monastery to Pherche and Lobuche.
