Jiri to Lukla trek was once the beginning point of the famous Everest trek. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norge, the first people to climb Mount Everest, also started their trek from Jiri to Lukla to climb Mount Everest from Kathmandu. It was only in 1963 that the road to Jiri was built. Since then, the Jiri to Lukla trek has been a traditional route in the Khumbu region. A week long ascent and descent in the central highlands before climbing to Lukla and Namche Bazar. However; Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay wanted an easy option for other mountaineers who wanted to climb Mt. In 1964 they began construction of Lukla Airport, opening up the area to anyone who wanted to catch a glimpse of the tallest mountain on Earth. Therefore; Sagarmatha, Solukhumbu region is now the most popular trekking region in Nepal. There are excellent lodges and restaurants along the trails that make it possible for the inexperienced to reach Everest Base Camp.
The trek from Jiri to Lukla takes an average of 8 to 10 days. It is never flat as it crosses the grain of the land for the first five days. The highest point reached before Lukla is Lamjura La pass, which is at 3,530 meters above sea level. A highlight of the area around the Lamjura La is the magnificent display of pink and lilac rhododendrons in spring. Therefore; The trek passes through parts of Solukhumbu that are relatively underdeveloped compared with the northern part of the district around Namche Bazaar. This enables trekkers to experience many traditional aspects of the culture of the local people that are less easy to see above Lukla. The trail is well serviced, with trekking teahouses and good campsites in most of the settlements. Therefore the portion of the trek from Jiri to Lukla is often quiet, and much better trekking route. However; we will cross the Lamjura La, and Taksindu before descending toward the raging river of the Dudh Kosi. We follow the “Dudh Koshi river” north through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main Everest trail below Lukla. And end our trek after finally from Lukla to Kathmandu by flight.
