DESCRIPTION

Best Time to Go: Anytime except for July-August Entry Point: Jiri/ Bus from Kathmandu Exit Point: Lukla/Flight to Kathmandu

Trail condition: Starting from a small town of Jiri, this route goes through beautiful villages and monasteries and still retains a rustic air around it.The route is well marked but the trail section between Jiri and Chheplung is not maintained regularly which might put stress on your knees.

Accommodation: During the trip you will stay in lodges with great facilities and warm Sherpa hospitality. Most of the lodges are equipped with WiFi, hot shower and extensive food menu. However, finding lodges during peak season (October) can be challenging.

Risks: The trek is considered to be physically challenging due to the altitude (above 5,000 meters) and risk of AMS. However, your walk from Jiri will acclimatize your body gradually and is better than flying to Lukla. You will also take a rest day at Pheriche for further acclimatization.

Route Variations: It is possible to add a little variety to this trek by staying at Dingboche on your way up and staying at Pheriche on your way down. Also, it is possible to come down to Namche via the route that goes through Upper Pangboche and Phortse.

Notes: Please note that this is a self-guided trek. Hence, you can customize this trek to your preference. Feel free to add lodges, side trips and sightings to your liking. So, what are you waiting for?
