Jiri – Namche – Kalapatthar Trekking

This is the classic Everest trek. You will experience an unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural splendor. The immense contrasts in altitudes, type of vegetation and mix of lifestyles are the main highlight of this trek. One can enjoy beautiful mountains views, verdant terraces and Himalayan streams and waterfalls as the trail crosses through villages and landscapes covered by rhododendron, magnolia and giant forests. The mountains to be sighted during the trek are Gaurishanker, Number Himal, Kwangde, Twache, Nuptse, Lhotse, Amadablam, Thamsherku and Everest.

 

The trek begins at Jiri (1905m). The trail heads eastward through the lovely forested hills of Solu and over the 3530m Lamajura Pass. Monasteries and uninterrupted mountain views lie ahead. The portion of the trek from Jiri to Lukla is often quiet, and therefore much better trekking country. We cross the Lamjura La, and Thaksindo before descending towards the raging river of the Dudh Kosi. We follow the “Dudh Koshi river” north through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main Everest trail below Lukla.
