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.
The trek has got several numbers of attractions, chief of which are the spectacular scenery, the unique culture of the Sherpa people of the Solukhumbu, the region where Mt. Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are located.

If you have the time, walk in from Jiri and fly out from Lukla following the itinerary as given below, or if you want to shorten the trip you can fly in to Lukla, trek to Everest and then fly out, taking 14 days to trek to Everest Base Camp & Kalapathar or you just can visit Gokyo Lake & Gokyo Ri, or Tyangboche Monastery in a week or so.
