Trek to the base camp of the highest point of the world gets even more special as we take a detour through the small village of Jiri (2,370m) in eastern Nepal. The immense wilderness and the scenic route this trek has gives a sense of freedom and ecstasy that other treks can barely match.
Trekking to Everest is still the benchmark for trekkers. Through this journey, we explore the Everest Base Camp (5,316m) while also crossing the beautiful Cho La (5,368m) and visit one of the most beautiful destinations on the planet Kala Pathar (5,545m). The trip shows one of the best panoramic views of the mountains in the world. As we watch the mountains reaching for the sky and the seamless horizon serving a great backdrop for the magnificent scenery, we can’t help but stop for a moment and thank nature for such a bliss.
Four of the 10 highest peaks of the world – Mt. Lhotse (8,591m), Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,156m) and Mt. Makalu (8,470m) welcome the trekkers. The beautiful glaciers and the ancient Monasteries add more. Happy Land Trek is honored to take trekkers to this beautiful trek to the eastern Himalayas that will be remembered for years.
