Everest Region is within UNESCO World’s natural heritage site Sagamartha National Park established in 1976 it lies some 120 km North-East of Kathmandu and covers an area of 1,148 sq. km. The park includes the upper catchment areas of the Dudh Kosi and Bhote Kosi Rivers. The park is largely composed of rugged terrain and deep gorges within an elevation of 2845m at Monju to the top of the world.
Everest region is famous for hosting the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest sitting at 8,848m/ 29,035 ft. This region is not only one of the most visually stunning regions on Earth, the people, villages, monasteries and massive mountains will all keep you wanting to come back again and again to further explore this beautiful area.
Everest is the drawcard, but once you start trekking you’ll realize that there’s much more to the Everest region than its iconic peak. There are three separate valleys to explore, each with equally impressive views, giant snowy peaks, and beautiful villages. Even if Everest wasn’t here, the region would still boast some of the best trekking routes in the world.
All of the treks listed here start from Lukla (or below) and head north to the village of Namche Bazaar. From there, you can either head directly to Everest Base Camp or take one of the other two valleys. As with all treks in Nepal, the duration and route can vary depending on what you’re looking for, how fast you trek, and the kind of experience you’d like to have.
Everest region offers Everest Base Camp Trekking ( either starting from Lukla or Jiri ), Gokyo Lake Trekking, Everest Base Camp Trekking with Gokyo Lake Trekking, Everest 3 Passes Trek and Everest View Trekking.
