A brief description of this region
The Everest region has become popular around the world for trekking, mountaineering, peak climbing and expedition due to the highest mountain (Mount Everest 8848meter) in the world - known as Sagarmatha ("head of the earth" in Nepal.
It is one of the major trekking destinations in Nepal in spite of poor accessibility. It is comparatively expensive and difficult than the Annapurna region. One must either walk for a week or fly to Lukla to get near Everest. The number of trekkers has increased dramatically because of the publicity by several sources. This region is famous not only for the world's highest mountain, (Mt.Everest 8848m.) but also for its typical Sherpa villages, their ancient cultures, age-old monasteries, landscapes, rocky valleys, alpine forests , meadows, Glaciers, ice-falls and wild-animals. The primary aim of trekking in Everest region is to step up to the Mt. Everest Base Camp (5340m.) It is true that Mt.Everest can not be observed from the base camp. So, while trekking to base camp most of the trekkers must go Kala Pathar (5545m.) to have a close view of Mt.Everest. Not only Mt. Everest but also other mountain peaks such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse , Mt. Amadablam , Mt. Pumori , Mt. Thamserku , Mt.Kantega, Kwangde and others can be seen from Kala Pattar.
