How to get to the mountain region?
The journey to Everest base camp starts with the most exciting and fascinating flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. The flight is itself so full of spirit which then is associated with the trekking to the Everest part. However, there’s another way if you want your trekking to belong.

Taking a flight is cool but if you want a taste of natural beauty the Jiri trail is just for you. You get to experience the footsteps of Tenzing and Hillary along with natural acclimatization on your way up.
You have to walk across the Sherpa village to reach your dream destination, you get a mix of both spiritual and cultural experiencing with a chance to test your physical strength. Walking via Jiri will add 10 -11 days to your trek to Namche bazaar(3500m). You get to accompany Sagarmatha national park (a rarest biodiverse one) where the Everest lies.
Even though Sagarmatha national park has been enlisted in the world heritage list and has the highest mountains like Everest, Cho Oyu, and Lhotse among other countless peaks above 6000m.
