Everest region trek is a direct approach to the foot of the world’s highest mountain – Mount Everest. It is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. Thousands of trekkers visit this beautiful region of Nepal each year.

The Everest region (the area around Khumbu) is often known as the home of Sherpa people and the mysterious Yeti. The trek around Khumbu comprises not only the trail to Everest Base Camp but also Namche Bazar, where its visitor finds it delightful to feel the heart of Sherpa culture, the inhabitants of Nepal Himalayas.

Moreover, your experience in Lukla, Tyangboche, and the whole Solukhumbu area will remain memorable.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp is one of the most famous trekking routes. The Everest Trek has been a center of attraction for trekkers and climbers since 1953.

Trek to Everest Base Camp is a matter of pride. There are many reasons for this.

1.    Legendary Mountaineers

First, the region sounds too attractive for those who dream of visiting the world’s highest snow peak. Everest base camp trek, also, seems equally romantic that it follows the footfall of legendary mountaineers, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. On top of that, the route also leads you to forests of blooming blue pine, rhododendron, fir and Dudh Koshi valley.

2.    High-Alpine Vegetation and Wildlife

Second, Everest Region Trekking is famous for biodiversity too. This particular area is actually rich in wildlife and high-alpine vegetation that include the musk deer, Himalayan tar, hare, mouse, snow pigeon, and snow crow.

3.    Cultural Values of The Northern Himalayan Community

In addition to hiking and expedition, trekking to Everest is a cultural tour too. Namche-bazaar, the Tengboche monastery, and Kalapatthar route enable its visitors to perceive Buddhist culture and its heritage. The Buddhist monuments of the Sherpas called Stupa, Chorten and Gompas reflect distinct cultural values of the northern Himalayan community.

4.    Amazing Views of Mt Everest and Mt. Lhotse

In short, the journey at the top of the world is waiting to delight its visitors with all its charm. Scenic flight to Lukla, diversity of flora and fauna, the Sherpa Museum in Namche Bazaar, friendly Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries, the sandy plain of Gorakshep, the broad summit of Kalapathar (5,545m), amazing views of Mt Everest, Mt. Lhotse among others are all there to make your trek to Everest memorable.

5.    Verities of Adventures

You can certainly get pleasure from Nepal excursion for River rafting, Mountaineering, jungle safari, hiking, and trekking. What’s more, you will enjoy bungee jumping, Paragliding, mountain biking, canoeing, and bird watching as well.

6.    Breath-Taking Altitudes of Around 5000m

If your hiking fantasy is to touch the mountains, then the popular trekking zones in Nepal include the famous Everest Base Camp, the mesmerizing Annapurna Circuit Trek, and the challenging Manaslu Base Camp among others. Of course, the trekking trails aforementioned do not involve climbing to the summit of those high mountains; even so, you will find yourself at breath-taking altitudes of around 5000m (so close to the sky, huh?). Speaking of high-altitude hikes, there are even some little peaks in Nepal, like Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar (offering a magnificent view of Everest), the summit of which can be, and has been, touched by hikers (no need for mountain climbing training).

7.    Seven Mighty Mountain Peaks

Where there are mountains, there are trails. And, Nepal has dozens and dozens of mountain trails to offer. All things considered, it’s the land of Everest (8848m), and 7 other mighty mountain highs, such as Manaslu (8156m), Lhotse (8516m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Cho Oyu (8201m) and Annapurna (8091m), all of these reach the list of earth’s top 10 highest peaks.

With so many gigantic peaks, and around fifty other noble mountains, it’s no wonder Nepal is often regarded as the trekking capital of the world.
