For a country of its size, Nepal has tremendous geographic diversity, rising from a basal elevation of 59m, to the world's highest point at 8848m. From east to west, the difference in landscapes is unique, which has elevated Nepal into one of the world’s best trekking regions. Among the list, the Everest region comes out on top.
Known in Nepal as the Khumbu region, it lies in the north east of the country and is part of the Solukhumbu district. Here, you can explore a range of elevations from 3300m to 8848m.
Without doubt, Mount Everest is the major attraction. Being the highest peak in the world, most travelers want to say they have seen it in person. Visitors to the region are spoilt with mountain views, including Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam, alongside the Khumbu glacier that belongs to the great ice age.
You can explore this classic region via various trekking routes, with the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek being the most popular, attracting thousands of trekkers every season.
This stunning region also provides longer and more adventurous treks such as the Gokyo Lake Trek and Everest Three Passes Trek. An Everest Luxury trek is also available where you can experience a higher standard of accommodation.
Every route in the Everest region will give you memories for life. But you need to stay cautious in various aspects. The altitude is high, and the terrain is challenging. You need to have robust mental and physical health. Along with this, your itinerary must have enough acclimatization days. You need to maintain your pace and watch out for altitude sickness. So, gear up and make all the necessary arrangements. The warm and cordial Sherpas await to share their life stories and traditions with you.
