The Everest region has gained its popularity for trekking, mountaineering, peak climbing and expedition. Among the major destinations of trekking in Nepal, Everest region stood second despite poor accessibility. It is more expensive and difficult to get Solu Khumbu than to the Annapurna Trek. One must either walk for a week or fly to Lukla to get near Everest. The number of trekkers to Everest has increased dramatically because of the publicity the mountain has received from several sources. Solu Khumbu is famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain, Mt.Everest (8848m.), but also for its Sherpa villages and age-old monasteries. The primary goal of trekking in Everest region is stepping at least the Everest Base Camp (5340m.).
It is the matter of fact that Mt.Everest can not be observed from the base camp. So, most of the trekkers climb Kala Pattar (5545m.) which is situated on the southern flank of Pumori (7145m.). Not only 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. Everest trekking offers varieties of trekking trails like- Everest Base Camp Trek, Kala Pattar Trek, Gokyo-Ri Trek,, Gokyo Cho- La Pass Trek, Renjo La Pass Trek, Everest High Pass Trek, Everest View Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Everest Comfort Trek, etc. Along the trail, the travelers would experience the typical Sherpa culture in the alpine settlements such as Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Thame, Tyangboche, etc. Being situated at higher altitude, the region has high risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) if due emphasis is not given for acclimatization. If symptoms like headache, loss appetite and vomiting are seen, one has to immediately inform to the guide so that he would facilitate to take first aid treatment or take you to the near by health post or he will take you down to the lower altitude.
Everest Trekking is the second most popular destination in the Himalaya with Everest Base Camp Trek (5364m) at the foot of the 8848m/29028ft peak its main goal. From Gorak Shep, the last village before base camp, a walk up Kala Patthar (Black Rock, 5545m), a brown bump on the southern flank of beautiful Pumori, gives dramatic views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and the huge Khumbu Glacier. Any trek towards these places through the Sherpa villages will introduce you to the people, their culture, monasteries and friendliness, as well as affording you stupendous views of the high Himalaya.
Trekking in Nepal to Khumbu region involves much walking on good inclined paths and over steel suspension bridges. A glance at a map will show that the north-easterly route crosses many ridges between the glacial rivers that have incised their way to the south, although the trek begins at an elevation of 2642m.
In Everest Trek on the day fourth, after considerable up and downhill walking, it crosses the Dudh Kosi River at only 3250m. The spectacular and varied scenery more than makes up for this! People who struggle with heights should not be put off trekking most paths are fairly wide and while the steel suspension bridges are sometimes high, they are well secured with very little way. Your guide will assist you through any occasional section where you feel hesitant.
Nepal Visitors offers eight trekking options for the Khumbu region. These include short treks for folk who simply want to experience the region’s culture and view Everest to treks of varying length and difficulty that have Everest base camp as a final destination. Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to trek, though Nepal Visitors team make it happen four season.
