The Everest region is located in the north-east of Nepal. Trekking in the Everest zone is not just a famous destination for backpackers but also for its scenic views of the Himalayas. The loyalty and friendliness of its inhabitants, the sociable Sherpas make this a region a literal trekking paradise that warms the heart to the core.
Everest trekking area or the Khumbu region has within its borders the Sagarmatha National Park, established in 1976 & covering an area of 1148 square kilometers. The Sagarmatha National Park is also a world heritage site. Some may even get a glance of the ‘Yeti’ & the local folks believe that the Pangboche Monastery actually possesses the real scalp of this Himalayan legend called the ‘Yeti’.
The tallest mountain in the world “Mt. Everest”, which is known in Nepal as "Sagarmatha" the mother goddess of the world, has always been the center of attraction for nature lovers and adventure seekers equally. Solukhumbu, the heartland of the Everest Region is a vital part of the Himalayan magic and provides the most popular destinations for adventure seekers from all over the planet. The geography of the Everest trekking area includes rugged rocky valleys, alpine & fir forests and green meadows, pert Sherpa villages, glaciers and icefalls.

The Solukhumbu Himalayan region is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain (8848 m.), but also for its wild fauna, flora and serene monasteries. The primary goal of the Everest region trek is the Everest base camp located at an elevation of about 5340 meters above sea level. But it is quite impossible to see Mt Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb up to the Kala-pattar, (5545m) on the southern flank of Mt. Pumori (7145m). From kala-pattar, one can get upfront views of Mt. Everest and a number of other mountains such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kantega, & Kwangde peak among others.
