Everest Region

Everest Trekking Region is inarguably popular in Nepal for trekking, peak climbing, mountaineering, expeditions. It is the home to the world's highest mountains that include Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201 m), Amadablam (6856 m), Mt. Pumori (7165 m), Mt Thamserku (6608 m), Mt Taboche and many other lesser elevation peaks. Other attractions of this region are the majestic mountains, the villages in the high mountain valleys, Buddhist monasteries, the legendary Sherpa, their culture and lifestyle. Upper part of the region lies within Sagarmatha National Park whereas the southern part is less rugged and it has many interesting villages & monasteries. Forests of Pine and hemlock cover the lower elevations of the national park. At elevations of around 3500 meters and above, forests of silver fir, birch, rhododendron and juniper trees are found. These forests provide habitat to at least 118 species of birds, including the Himalayan Monal Pheasant, the Blood Pheasant, the Red-billed and yellow-billed Choughs. Sagarmatha National Park is also home to a number of rare animal species as well, including musk deer, wild yak, snow leopard, Himalayan black bear and red panda. Himalayan tahr, deer, languar monkeys, hares, mountain foxes, and martens. Himalayan wolves are also found in the Park, however, they are rare and reclusive.

In the Upper Khumbu area all vegetation is dwarfed and shrub-like. As the altitude increases, plant life is restricted to lichens and mosses. Plant life ceases to exist at about 5,750 meters (18,860 ft) as this is the permanent snow line in the Himalayas.

Above all, the biggest attraction to this region is the trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC). The places to explore here include Gorak Shep and Kala Patthar, the Cho La Pass, Gokyo and its lakes, Gokyo Ri, and the Renjo Pass to the villages of Thame, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Khumjung, Phakding and Monjo. From Kala Pattar you will have breathtaking views of Everest and other satellite peaks.

There are several trekking options that traverse through above places. The four treks that follow have proven to be the most popular, but any trek can be customized to include places or views that interest you. All the trekking routes are within Sagarmatha National Park. Only a 40 minute flight from Kathmandu, all but a small percentage of the treks to the Everest region originate or pass through Lukla, the "Gateway to Mt. Everest", whose tiny airstrip is perhaps the most harrowing approach in the world. If your heart is strong enough for the landing at Lukla, the trek to Everest region would be a lifetime experience. On the way to Namche Bazaar you will see your first distant views of mighty Mt Everest. People from different villages in this area and even from Tibet come to the local market for various types of trading, especially on Saturdays.
