Trekking Destinations > Everest > Everest Classic Trek (Jiri to Everest Base Camp)

Retrace the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. Enjoy the hospitality of Sherpa village life. Brush against the majesty of Mt. Everest. These are only a few of the experiences that await you in the fabled Solu-Khumbu region of Nepal

After a careful acclimatization approach from Lukla, we ascend Gokyo Ri in the crisp sunrise air, for 360 degree views of many of the world's highest peaks (Everest, Nuptse, Lotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu are in the top 10), and of the Nagozumba glacier, the longest glacier in the Khumbu region. Next we attempt Cho La (5420m), a pass only rarely completed by trekking groups, which rewards you with a descent through pristine snow fields into a broad secluded valley surrounded by craggy peaks. The next highlight on the trip is Kalapathar, the classic hike for close-up views of Everest, and the Southern Wall that towers above you. After reaching Base Camp, our route descends through many cultural sights; Pangboche, a traditional Sherpa village, Tengboche, famous for it's ornately decorated Tibetan monastery and Khumjung, with the Hilary School and Hospital.
