Everest Base Camp Classic  Trek starting  with 6 hour driving (187 KM) to Jiri, Bhandar. This trek follows the traditional route taken by early Everest expedition and still serve main artily to the Road less Everest region. Everest Base Camp Trek is one of  the most adventurous parts and adventure to trek through the hills towards mountains by our foot than having direct flight to Lukla. The EBC Classic Trekking trail used to be the most preferred trail by visitors, trekkers and adventure lovers before Lukla airport came into operation.

Classic Everest Base Camp Trekking offers an wonderful opportunity to climb kalapathar (5,545m), overlooking the base camp area, superb view of the highest mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu etc, and to interact with the indigenous people. This is considered as the highly praised trekking route to Everest region. It was in 1952 when two renewed figures Sir Edmund Hillary and Mr. Tenzing Sherpa had taken the same route to Mt. Everest. After a seven hours scenic drive to Jiri, we follow spectacular route via Solukhumbu area through the heart of fine Sherpa villages, each village having something new to offer. It offers an ample chance to explore beautiful forest, farming country sides and several monasteries situated at high elevation on the way to Lukla. Once one has passed Lukla, we climb on to Namche, the main trading village of the Khumbu area continuing via Thyangboche monastery to Pherche and Lobuche.
