Everest Classic Trek Overview
Everest Classic trek is so called because Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay trekked through this route for their Everest expedition. So, before the mountain airstrip in Lukla was build, this was the only trekking route to the Everest base camp, ideally making it a traditional route to the base camp.
We begin this historic Everest Classic trek from Jiri into Sagarmatha National Park to Everest, also called as the classic route to Everest. The first destination ‘Jiri’ is a very small VDC in Dolakha District in the north-eastern part of Nepal. As the closest road head, Jiri is the trailhead for many treks into the Mount Everest region. Normally people fly to Lukla directly and start the Everest trek which is 7-8 days shorter than trek to Lukla from Jiri. Actually this is where the fun of the classic trek lies, since it has very less number of tourists trekking through the route. There are lots of oriental villagers towards our way to Jiri, settled by ethnic people of Magar, Rai and Sherpa community. Hence, the trek offers an unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural experience.
The massive differences in altitudes, variety of vegetation and mix of lifestyles are the main highlight of this classic trek. We at skyline trek and expedition have years of experience organizing fun yet responsive treks in this classic region.
