Expedition Route Everest Base Camp (25 Days )
This trek follows the old and ancient route to Mt. Everest. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpa had taken the same route in 1952. A 7-hour drive takes you to Jiri from where the trek starts. The route passes through the sherpa villages of the Solukhumbu area, through beautiful forests, farming countrysides, and several monasteries. In this route, the trekkers have the opportunity to climb “KALAPATHAR” the base of Everest, which offers a superb view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, and other mountains in this region.
