This trek commences overland to the road heading to Jiri (6 hrs). We follow the original route of the early expeditions through some truly beautiful alpine scenery. This region is relatively underdeveloped compared to the trail from Lukla onwards.

The trek provides an insight into the many traditional aspects of the lives of the different ethnic groups of the area — Tamang, Kami, Brahmins, Kshetri & Sherpa. One of the highlights on the way to Lukla is the overnight stop at Junbesi, the oldest Sherpa settlement in the Solu Khumbu. An hour above Junbesi lays the monastery of “Tupten Chholing” with the villages of Mabung and Pangkarma, which are places to visit on route. The journey from Jiri to Lukla is up and down.

People usually arrive in Lukla in very good shape expecting next to come by. From Lukla we follow the itinerary as described in our Lukla for Lukla tour.
