Everest

The Solu Khumbu or the Everest Region, stretches in between 2600m/8528ft to 8848m/29022ft is the most famous place for varieties of trekking tours in Nepal and quite possibly of the high mountains and the snow peaks – Himalayas. Not only it is the home of Mt. Everest (8848m/29022ft) – the tallest peak on earth, it is also the home of different family groups, such as the legendary Sherpas, Rais, Magars, Tamangs etc. As well as Sagarmatha (Mother of Universe) as the Nepalese call to Everest, the Khumbu also boasts other 8,000 meter peaks including Lhotse and Cho Oyu whilst Makalu can be seen barely a ridge away.

Any trekking tour in Everest Region provides seceneries of the mountains and Himalayan peaks, wide range of wilderness and cultural encounters. Therefore in Solu Khumbu, there are those who wish to reach the highest point on earth; there are those who choose to live out their dreams by standing at the foot of Mt. Everest whilst there are those who prefer a middle ground south of the Khumbu such as the lower Khumbu. It is the region suitable for all kinds of adventure seekers.

A trek of any length is an opportunity to observe and participate in the daily life of the locals and similarly any trek here is a path to higher altitude there it invites a leisurely paces.

In the middle graded elevation (such as in the lower Solu) the climate is temperate therefore the forests and pastureland are well watered, the farmlands cultivated with maize, wheat, barley and apples while the higher Khumbu has cold climate and does not grow so much in cultivation. Tourism is the major activities here.

Buddhist Lamas, monks and nuns led by Rinpoches (reincarnated lamas) serve the predominantly Sherpa communities from the monasteries. Recognized as the World Heritage Site (in1979), the Sagarmatha National park (with an area of 1148 sq. km.) in the Khumbu is one of the few places on earth that has a unique bio-diversity and the highest and youngest mountain system in the world. Most of our trek itineraries run through Khumbu and the Sagarmatha National park are excellent tours mainly in terms of acclimatization and to experience the changing customs, traditions and lifestyles as you pass through lower altitude settlements to those in the higher areas. Also we know that Mt. Everest is the prime attraction of all.

Every one of the above gives excellent adventure! Yet, we would love to hear from you and would be happy to help you pick the best trips according to your needs and schedules.
