Everest Region

Everest region is another glorious region for trek as it is the region of world’s highest peak Mt. Everest (8848m) also named Sagarmatha. This region trek is more than just trekking; it is a pilgrim, a tough challenge with a clear goal at the end. The trek leads you deep into Buddhist Sherpa country between the world’s most magnificent peaks and their inspiring beauty. The Everest region is situated in northeast part of Nepal. The prime attraction is the Mt. Everest which lies in Sagarmatha National Park. There are also few other peaks above 8000m- Lhotse and Cho Oyu and several other above 6000m. Sagarmatha National Park can be accessed by a 10 day walk through the middle hills of Solu to the higher terrains of Khumbu. Apparently, all the trekkers in this region head through the same trial of Solu-Khhumbu. Starting with a alarming flight to one of the world’s most dangerous airport Lukla (2860m), the trail heads into the mountainous region Khumbu (3300m), a dizzyingly high Sherpa homeland. The trail then leads up to Namche Bazar (3440m) where the path diverts into three ways. One leading to the Everest Base Camp and the view point of Kala Patthar; other leads to the gorgeous Gokyo Lake (4700-5000m). These points take about eight days walk from Lukla. Everest is also the coldest amongst all the major treks, so the warm supplies must be checked. Namche Bazar provides you with the rental shops for any high-altitude gears. The weather is another factor that should be considered as the flight to Lukla is put in rush in certain months of the year. The climate itself in the airport area is changing instantly. The altitude of Everest can be quite problematic as Everest isn’t quite heavily trekked as Annapurna, its higher altitude is more fragile and the weather is simply colder than any other mountains. Khumbu, the point for Everest trek, is populated by just around 4000, receiving around 20,000 trekkers in a year and almost twice porters. This trail along Solu-Khumbu has nice numbers of lodges with very good facilities. The main Jiri–Lukla–Namche–Base Camp route is a very straight forward alternative route to the Gokyo Lakes. The trek is well supplied with views of unbelievable peaks, Buddhist Monasteries and Sherpa village and their hospitality. There lies a monastery named Pangboche which locals believe that it has the possession of Yeti, a Himalayan Legend. As we move on in our trek we come across this many Sherpa villages where our Sherpa crew household in this area.
