Instead of Jiri, the trekking these days begins from the place called Bhandar since the bus is now available up to Bhandar, the gateway to Everest base camp. But it is axcessible only in winter time thus most of the tourist start from Jiri due to the rough road. It is one of the longest trekking trails in Nepal; however the opportunities you get to explore the settlement of different ethnic groups, local food and delicacies, Buddhist monasteries, temples, splendid landscapes, jungle, flora and fauna through this route is almost impossible from any other part of destinations.
Note: The Lukla airport is surrounding by High Mountains range so that the weather is does not stable and it change frequently. The Kathmandu to Lukla flight is possible to be delayed for a few hours or even cancelled for a day or more. It is very rarely but it could happen even in the best trekking season. We will request you to allocate extra days in Kathmandu before your departure.
