We pass alpine forests, many Himalayan villages, glacial rivers having warm hospitality of local people. On the way, you get chance to observe several Buddhists monasteries, praying flags, Sherpa ethnic villages and the living lifestyle of Himalayan inhabitants. Besides that, the great snow-capped panoramic views of Himalayas will make you surprised. You can see several exotic views throughout the Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek.

By the way, this trailhead is referred as a classic route to Everest, so that Jiri is also called the gateway to Mt Everest. However, the trail actually begins from Kathmandu Valley. Unlike Lukla route, Jiri route takes you along the greenery landscape hilly parts from the beginning. Then it slightly moves to the landscape views of snow-capped mountains and the more we go upwards, the more you feel about the effects of high altitude. So before heading to any trip, you should prepare for that trip. You should consider what is needed during the trip. What should be done and what should not be done.
