The Asia Adventure Nepal Pvt.Ltd.'s curator insight, August 23, 2013 4:32 AM

The Everest ( top of the world) region is located in the northeast of Nepal.9 to 11 days walk through the middle hills of solu to the higher altitude of Khumbhu to the base of Sagarmatht (Mt.Everest), the world’s highest peak, is an opportunity to observe and participate in the daily life of the legendry sherpa people.The prime attraction – 8848 meters peak lies in Sagarmatha National Park, which is also home of two other Eight Thousand meters –Lotse and cho Oyu besides several other prominent peaks like Ama Dablam which is one of the most beautiful mountain in Nepal, above 6,000 meters.

Sagarmatha (Mt.Everest) has been designated as a World Heritage Site in 1979, more then 1,148 sq km park lies above 3,000m.The park is composed of rugged terrain with deep gorges,glacier and huge rooks. The vegetation in the park varies from temperate plants like pine, hemlock, fir, juniper, birch, rhododendron and shrubs to alpine plants and rhen to bare rocks and snow. This area is the home of ghoral, thar, serow and musk deer as well as the impeyan pheasant, blood pheasant, red-billed chough and the yellow billed chough,

Trail to the Everest beings at Lukla, the airport at 2850 m. The trail climbs up the Dudhkoshi River Valley, and the following day brings you to the legendry Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar in the Khumbu ( 3,500m), which is the staging point for expeditions to Everest and other peaks in the area. Above Namche lie the traditional villages of Khunde and Khumjung, the largest villages in the Khumbu at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila.

Across the canyon  from Khunde,pheriched on a high ridge, is the Tenboche Monastery, the leading  Buddhist center in the Khumbhu. The monastery rests amid stunning views of Everest, Lotse and Amadablam.From Tengboche you can continue on to Pheriche, Kalapathar and the hamlet of Gorakshep. From there, Everest Base Camp is easily accessible, as is the summit of Kala Paththar (5,545m), from which much of Mt. Everest is clearly visible. However, you must take time to properly acclimatize as the altitude agains are rapid.
