Everest Region Nepal
Everest Region Nepal

Everest Region’s most famous landmark is Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. Locally known as Khumbu, Everest Region is the world’s highest trekking and climbing destination in the world. It lies in northern Nepal and is home to three more 8,000m peaks besides Mount Everest – Cho Oyu, Lhotse and Makalu.

The route to the highest trek in the world, Everest Base Camp Trek, weaves across this region. The Sherpas, who are known the world over for their mountaineering skills and humility, are native to this region.

Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World heritage Site and a rich storehouse of rare Himalayan wildlife and vegetation, is located in this region.

Prior to the conquest of Mount Everest by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Hillary in 1953, not much was known about this region in the outside world. The region was only identified as the land of the tallest mountain and Yeti, the abominable snowman. The general perspective about the region broadened after commercial trekking became popular in Nepal. The early expedition groups to this mountain are credited for charting out the trekking routes that have become popular now.

Because of its mountainous terrain, no roads have been built in the Everest Region. The only way to get here is via a flight or by foot. The Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla is the main access point for most people visiting this region. The trekking trails from Jiri and Salleri are also used to get to this high altitude region.

Remote, pristine and surrounded by dramatic landscape, Everest Region is the most visited adventure destination in Nepal. Every year trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world make a beeline to walk along its trails and climb Mount Everest. The trails remain busiest during spring and autumn, the two main seasons for trekking and climbing.

Dotted with traditional Sherpa villages and ancient Buddhist monasteries, a journey to Khumbu Region offers a glimpse to the unique culture and lifestyle of the Sherpas. Believed to have migrated from the Tibetan highlands, the Sherpas are staunch followers of Tibetan Buddhism. They share a lot in common with the Tibetans, including costumes and traditions, than with the lowland Hindus.

Tengboche Monastery, one of the oldest and important monasteries in the Khumbu region, has direct links with the Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet.

Hardy, humble, simple and friendly Sherpas are known throughout the world for their mountaineering skills and almost superhuman ability to survive on high altitude without the use of supplementary oxygen. While majority of the Sherpas work as climbing and trekking guides, many own teahouses and lodges. Compared to other trekking regions, the teahouses in the Everest Region boasts of better and modern facilities.

The settlements of Lukla, Pakding, Namche, Khumjung and Kunde are some of the biggest Sherpa villages. Namche, carved on a hillside like a bowl, is regarded as the Sherpa capital and economic heart of the Khumbu region. Many of the Sherpa villages are located within the Sagarmatha National Park, a natural world heritage site. Stretched over an area 1,148sq km, the park is home to the endangered Red Panda, snow leopard and musk deer and some of the highest peaks in the world. Nepal’s longest glacier, Ngozumpa glacier lies within the park’s area.

One can explore Everest Region filled with magnificent mountain scenery by trekking through its many trails or by taking a luxurious Everest helicopter tour. As these walking trails are the lifeline of the local villagers, the paths are well-maintained and safe.

The popular trekking trails in the Everest Region are those leading to Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri, the three high passes of Cho La, Renjo La and Kongma La. Apart from Mount Everest, peaks like Lobuche, Island peak or Imja Tse, Mera Peak, Ama Dablam etc. also receive a lot traffic.

Even if you have fitness issues, you can still explore this beautiful region by chartering a helicopter. Everest Base Camp Heli Tour lasting for just a couple of hours is quite popular among the elderly tourists and people on a short visit.
