The Everest Region is located in the north eastern region of Nepal in the Solukhumbu district of Sagarmatha zone, the zone deriving its name from the Nepali name of Mount Everest, known amongst the Tibetans as Chomolungma, got its english name from the welsh surveyor Sir George Everest who during his time in India as a surveyor was responsible for surveying and mapping of the Everest.
The trek starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla 2800m kickstarting the ascend with a short trek to Phakding, a small Sherpa Village, up through the valley of the milky river, known as Dudh Koshi amongst the locals to Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Sherpa country, exploring the riches of the cultures and traditions of the people in the local village.
The trek move towards Tengboche, through Khunde and khumjung below Khumbuyula, a sacred mountain of the Sherpas in the Khumbu valley where one can bare witness the skull of mystical yeti. Tengboche monastery in Tengboche, (3867m) serves as a major landmark of the devotion of the Sherpa community towards Buddhism making it not only a religious centre but the breathtaking panorama that the mountains construct around the area resembles a beautiful set work of a wisely crafted movie including the Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse and Lhotse. The community hunting ban in this area serves as a chance to witness the co-existence between the wild animals and the humans that can be seen lingering around the monastery, so don’t be surprised when a musk deer is about. Be prepared to be amazed. Moving past chhortens and steep hills, the trek through the Khumbu Glacier, leaving behind great snow walls, and glacial moraine behind us finally arriving at the Everest Base Camp 5335 m. The trek seems even more worthwhile upon reaching the black rock, known as Kalapatthar 5545m in the local tongue overlooking Ama Dablam, the Everest and Pumpri towering behind.
