The Everest Base Camp Trek via Jiri will starts with a long public bus ride from Kathmandu or private car/jeep. Although the trail head from Jiri into Sagarmatha National Park is referred to as the classic route to Everest, the original trailhead began at Kathmandu. All early Everest expeditions including Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary on the summit passed through Jiri. So Jiri is also called the Gateway of the Mt. Everest.The trail to Lukla passes through classic Middle Hills country that is blissfully free from the crowds that mob the trails further north.
