The region on “top of the world”, Mt. Everest-Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma in Tibetan-is one of the most popular destination for trekkers, explorers and climbers. As well as the world’s highest mountain, it is also famous for its magnificent scenery, Sherpa villages, the fascinating cultural life of the people, and beautiful monasteries.
Treks in this area can be as short as 5 days or longer than a month depending on your fitness, interest and the time you have available. The treks to Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar and Gokyo lake treks are very popular. For those people who are interested in the wildlife, a further attraction is Sagarmatha National Park. The route passes through spectacular forests of blooming rhododendron in March/ April, as well as forest of blue pine, fir and juniper.
