Hike from Jiri is the best way to do an Everest trek following the footsteps of the old approach route followed by Everest expeditions from the 1950's through the 70's. It provides a good opportunity to see the densely populated middle hills and the high altitude splendor of the Khumbu or Everest, region.
Everest (8848m.) is called ï¿½SAGARMATHAï¿½ in Nepali and ï¿½CHHOMOLUNGMAï¿½ in Tibetan. The Mount Everest or Solu Khumbu region is one of the most popular trekking areas in the world. The route lies in the highest wildlife reserve in the world, the Sagarmatha National Park.
This trek is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes, including four of the worldï¿½s highest peaks: Cho Oyu (8,201m.), Makalu (8,463m.), Lhotse (8,516m.) and Everest (8,848m.). Breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but, culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life.
