Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri

Take a trip to the Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri on this 22-day trekking tour to the Khumbu Region of Nepal. From natural wonders to Sherpa culture and tradition, there’s so much to experience in the Everest region. Visitors will see Everest and other eight-thousanders in the area alongside one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, Ama Dablam. Besides, you’ll also get a taste of Sherpa’s hospitality, which represents their values.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hike to the Everest Base Camp starts with a long drive to Jiri, which is about 190 km far from the capital city, Kathmandu. Hike up to the village of Bhandar, and we’ll make our way to Sete the next day. Walk along the forest trail with rich flora and fauna. Ascend to the Lamjura Pass to get astounding views of the Mahalangur Mountain Range, and while descending, get to see the Dudh Kunda as well.

Along the way, we’ll encounter the Tibetan-influenced Sherpa Culture and architecture all over the region. Before making it to Lukla, where the Everest Base Camp Trek usually starts, we get past the Ringmo, Nunthala, Bupsa, and Surkhe villages. From the next day onwards, it’s the same as the typical EBC trek; we hike up to Phakding, then enter the UNESCO-listed world heritage site, Sagarmatha National Park, through Monjo before arriving in Namche Bazaar, the tourist hub of the region.

After a day’s acclimatisation there, we’ll see one of the oldest monasteries in the country in Tengboche. We’ll be at Dingboche the next day and take another day off to ensure we acclimate to the climate here. Before getting to the last settlement in Gorakshep before the glorious base camp, we’ll need to get past Dugh La and the village of Lobuche.

Finally, on the day of our ascent to EBC, we’ll first make a quick climb to the 5545-meter Kala Patthar and be in awe of the highest mountain in the world. After breakfast in Gorakshep, on the same day, we’ll navigate uphill to the base camp at 5364 meters. On our way back, we’ll hike down to Gorakshep and then to Periche. From Periche, we’ll walk towards Lukla via Namche to fly to Kathmandu.

This trail is difficult, even more strenuous than the typical EBC trek, but one thing’s for sure: we’ll get to experience much more. This Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri is designed for those who want to explore the Khumbu Region more and get in touch with nature at its best.

Where is Mount Everest Located?

Mount Everest, or Sagarmatha, is the highest peak in the world, located at a height of 8849m from sea level. It is located in the Solukhumbu district in the Khumbu municipality. Many people worldwide visit Nepal with the only goal of conquering Mount Everest.

Furthermore, many tourists worldwide are attracted just by trekking its base camp routes, which is also tricky. There are two ways of climbing Mt Everest, via Nepal or China. The border of Nepal and China runs through the summit as either border is divided into Nepal and Tibet. One of the fantastic views from the top of Mount Everest is the evergreen Khumbu Glacier, which always mesmerises the tourists or trekkers who have come to explore the base camp area.

Major Attractions of Everest Base Camp Trek Via Jiri

Everest Base Camp Trek Via Jiri is another way of trekking towards Everest Base Camp, and many unique attractions will make your trek and expenses worthwhile. So, let’s take a look at them.


Jiri is one of the big towns in Nepal and is considered the hill station in Nepal. It lies in the Bagmati province in the Dolakha municipality. It had a population of over 13,000 as per the 2011 consensus, but the population has increased considerably since it has been over ten years. Despite being there for a day, Jiri is a phenomenal place for sightseeing, as you can see many places like Gurans Park, Sikri Valley, Stone Park, Chyordong Hill, and Lauti Jharana. There are many more sights and attractions in Jiri town, but for one day, these are enough.

Namche Bazaar

Namche Bazaar is a small town in the Khumbu region that acts as the rest stop for trekkers going towards the Everest Base Camp. It is one of the main towns of the Khumbu region, which consists of many tourist attractions like Syangboche Airport, Sagarmatha National Park, Sagarmatha Next Centre, Hotel Everest View, and others.


Kalaphattar is the highest point you will go to when trekking Everest Base Camp via Jiri. It lies at an altitude of 5545 meters from where you can see the entire Everest Base Camp and the Khumbu region. Seeing all the fantastic mountains like Mt Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, and others is a vantage point. It is also the primary spot for clicking pictures and enjoying the panoramic beauty of mountains that will live your lifetime. The name Kalaphattar comes from the literal Nepali meaning black stone, as tons of shiny black stones lie around the area. Many worshippers believe some perfect round stone to be the incarnation of Lord Bishnu.

Lamjura Pass

Lamjura Pass is another exciting attraction you will encounter while trekking from Jiri towards Everest Base Camp. When you trek from Jiri to Lukla, you will come across a mountainous pass around 3500m called Lamjura La or Lamura Pass. It is visible whether you travel by foot to take a flight from Jiri to Lukla, but if you are travelling, you will first reach village Bhandar, Sete, and then Lamjura Pass. The main attraction of the pass is the exceptional scenic beauty of the valley and it is also regarded as the vantage point to take pictures of mountains.

Acclimatization Day in Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri

Acclimatization Day is significant for any trekking route as it helps you to get used to the climate and altitude of the trekking. During these trekking days, the trekkers must walk relentlessly for 7-8 hours daily and climb terrains to higher altitudes.

During the Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri, two days are separated as an acclimatisation day.
The first acclimatisation day is the 12th day of the trek after reaching Namche Bazaar. On the 11th day of the trek, we will go to Namche, but the next day, instead of climbing altitude, we will stay in Namche Bazaar and explore the town. We can even hike towards Hotel Everest View and return to the Namche to stay overnight.

Another day separated for acclimatization is the 15th day of the trek in Dingboche. We will go for some excursions to Chhukung Valley, South Wall of Lhotse, and Imja Khola and return to Dingboche.
Hence, these two days are separated as the acclimatisation day for the Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri.

Additional Information

Extreme weather conditions

One of the significant difficulties that the trekkers might face during the Everest Base Camp Trek is the weather conditions that are extreme and dynamic.

Generally, the Spring season is best to prepare for the Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri as there is less chance of rainfall and snow, but the cold temperature and high-speed wind are still consistent.

Relentless Walking

Another reason the Everest Base Camp Via Jiri is a challenging trip is that trekkers must walk continuously for 7-8 hours daily for 17 to 21 days. Furthermore, the route is more complex than you have to wander through barren lands and slippery terrains and climb snowcapped mountains daily. You have to climb altitude, which reduces oxygen levels and raises the temperature. Hence, the trekkers must be in top physical condition and have healthy, fit bodies to perform this excursion without any risk of getting tired all the time, injured, or ill. Hence, every trekker should be prepared for this trek months before it starts by exercising and running to get their body used to it.

Altitude Sickness

Generally, these types of sickness arise after an altitude of 3000m.

You can protect yourself from Altitude sickness by keeping yourself warm and maintaining heat by eating ginger tea, honey, and lemon tea. If your body shows signs of altitude sickness, you can get brief relief by taking different medicines that will give you enough time to lower altitude and get comfortable.


Which season should you avoid for Everest Base Camp via Jiri Trek?

The season you must avoid going for this trek is winter, as continuous snowfall, rainfall, and blizzards can block roads and increase the chance of landslides and avalanches.

Which mountains are seen from Kalaphattar?

Will I get to go to Hotel Everest View during this trek?

Yes, Hotel Everest View is located 300m upwards of Namche Bazaar. During the acclimatisation day at Namche, you can hike towards the hotel for breakfast and photography and return to Namche for an overnight stay.

What kind of permits do you need for the trek?

You will need three kinds of permits for the trek: a Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit, a Khumbu Municipality Permit, and a Sagarmatha National Park permit to complete the trek without any barrier.
