Historical trekking trail followed by legendary Mountaineers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who marched-in to their first ever successful Mount Everest Expedition back in 1953.

This trek is ideal for good acclimatization with overnight stop adjacent to quaint villages with their own monasteries, the root of the Sherpa and Tibetan Buddhism lies in these steep slopes of Solu. This traditional route passes equal to the elevation of Namche Bazaar and discovers the fertile valleys and the hospitality of the Sherpa people without the vast crowds found beyond Lukla on this classic Everest trail. This Classic route to Everest Base Camp takes you along a well-trodden Everest Trial, allows you to breathe in the deep rural ambiance and soak up the idyllic scenes.

The original expedition route between Jiri and Namche Bazaar has been all, but ignored since the construction of the Lukla airport, sponsored by Sir Edmund Hillary in order to deliver supplies to the schools and hospital he founded.

This option to Everest Base Camp trekking itinerary has been designed in consultation with professional mountaineers and guides ensuring adequate time for proper acclimatization before reaching Everest Base Camp in order to perform their best – running the World’s Highest Marathon.
