Jiri valley lies at the distance of 55 Km. east from Charikot and 188 Km. northeast from Kathmandu. Swiss tourists compare this valley with beautiful city of Switzerland, Jurich. The valley has its own importance being the gateway to Mt. Everest. It is from jiri that you start your trek to Those, Cherdung, Thodung. Walking around jiri valley or up to the cherdung cheese factory (1hour distance) will be a welcome exercise for your legs before starting one the long way back from Jiri. Jiri & village nearby is the home of jirel which is not found in other district of Nepal. This fact could be an interesting subject for sociological research & having special interest on it.
