Jiri to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar is a highly praised trekking route of the Everest region. It was in 1953 when two renown figures Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa had taken the same route for the Mt. Everest expedition. After an eight-hour scenic drive from Kathmandu to Jiri, our trek starts the following morning, by passing through the lower parts of Everest region that are relatively undeveloped compared to the northern side of the district around Namche Bazaar.
