Jiri to Everest Classical Trek

With eight of the Worlds ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountains vistas. The Everest trekking is justifiably famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for its friendly Sherpa people. Picturesque villages, a great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals and monasteries. The Sagarmatha National Park is rich with flora and fauna, but the existence of the Yeti remains a mystery.

After a seven hours scenic drive to Jiri, we follow the 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 the beautiful forest, farming countrysides 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 Pheriche and Lobuche. The trek has got several numbers of attractions, chief of which are the spectacular scenery, the unique culture of the Sherpa people of the Solukhumbu, the region where Mt. Everest and it’s attendant lesser peaks are located.
