The great Himalaya to Everest from Jiri Everest Base Camp Trekking which routes was taken from Sir Edmond Hillary, Adventure Pilgrims trekking offers for you The Everest or the Khumbu region is justifiably the most famous of all the trekking and mountain regions. Populated by the Sherpas, the attractions of this area are the majestic mountains, the high mountain villages, charming monasteries and the congenial people. This area includes the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8,848 m.) and many peaks of altitude 8000m. and above, such as Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Makalu.
This section is less crowded as most people fly to Lukla and walk only the high-altitude portion of the route. The trek from Jiri involves a tremendous amount of up-and-down walking. The trek climbs to the ridge that separates two rivers, descends to the river itself, and then ascends the next ridge.
Even though the trek begins at an elevation of 1860m, on the sixth day it crosses the Dudh Kosi at only 1500 m after considerable uphill and downhill walking. Everest Trek is not only famous for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain,but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals and ancient monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park and the story of the yeti is still a mystery of the world from the Khumbu region.
