Everest Region Trekking Peaks

 

The snowy mountain peaks of the Everest Region inspire countless dreams and adventures, including visions of scaling the highest mountain on earth.

The Sagarmatha National Park, located in eastern Nepal, contains a considerable section of the Himalayas including the southern half of Mount Everest. Sagarmatha comes from the Sanskrit word, Sagar, for sky, and matha for forehead.

Most of the park area is very rugged and steep, with its terrain cut by deep rivers and glaciers. It can be divided into four climate zones: a forested lower zone, a zone of alpine scrub, the upper alpine zone with little vegetation, and the Arctic zone where no plants grow.

The trail is decorated with sacred Tibetan-Buddhist mani stones engraved with prayers and colorful prayer flags.  You share the trails with yak trains and Tibetan nomads. Simple but welcoming guesthouses are found in all but the most remote areas. Trekking through the mountains allows you to get both close to the scenery and the lifestyle of the Sherpa people who have inhabited this harsh land for generations.

The popular approach to this region begins with a breathtaking flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, 2800m.  When you arrive at Lukla you are surrounded by the glistening snow peaks which only get higher and more magnificent as you trek to Namche.

Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest is a bustling village, a great place to stop and acclimatize.  Its cobbled streets are lined with cafes, guest-houses and shops selling trekking supplies. From a viewpoint just above Namche it is possible to get your first look at Mount Everest.

The revered Tengboche Monastery, the crystalline Gokyo Lake, the historic Everest Base Camp, Cho La pass and Kala Pattar are some of the many other remarkable places to visit in the Everest region.
