Journey Up to Here
 
 
The usual route to Jorsale is as follows:
  1. take a plane to Kathmandu 
  2. take a plane to Lukla (45 min)
  3. hire a porter and go by foot to Jorsale (approx. 6 hours):

You begin your trip in Lukla http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lukla). Lukla is a noisy place with many lodges, teahouses and shops. As you pass through, you begin a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Kosi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudh_Kosi. The Nupla (5885m), which can be seen in the distance on the opposite bank, is a peak atop the Kong Ridge. Descend a mountainside path that merges into the route to Everest, with views to a valley to your right; and at its far end, the Kusum Kanguru (6367m). The Dudh Kosi approaches; pass a Mani wall and arrive at Ghat teahouse. Continue along a small path with many climbs and descents following the left bank of Dudh Kosi to Phakding. Start along a level path along the right bank of the river, Thamserku (6608m) looms skyward on the opposite bank. Cross a stream and climb the terraced hill from the Dudh Kosi route, to arrive at Bengar. Climb from the riverbed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. Continue along a path with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass by the tiny village of Monjo.

Descend the path of stone steps and return to the right bank over a bridge. After a short climb you come to the Sagarmatha National Park Service where a park entrance fee is collected.

Now you come to the quiet and cozy village of Jorsale.

Don't miss the entrance of the Nirvana Lodge and Garden Restaurant at the left. Step in and Kazi and his family will give you a warm welcome.

Jorsale is an ideal place for acclimatization or for spending a longer vacation. You can go for long walks discouvering the beautiful surroundings, visit the interesting public school in Monjo or make a trip to  lively sherpa capitol Namche Bazar and take a look at the highest mountain of the world.
