Trekking in Everest Region

Everest Region TrekkingThe Everest region of Nepal is one of the best known trekking regions in the world. This is the land of the Sherpa people and the world's great 8,000 meter peaks. Many trekkers walk in from the road head at Jiri, through the lovely rolling hills of the Solu region. Others fly in to the village of Lukla to start their trek. A few days above Lukla, is the entrance to the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park and the town of Namche Bazaar, where most trekkers take a day to acclimatize to the high altitude. From here one may branch towards the village of Thame or continue on to take on of the two main trekking routes, to Gokyo Lake or towards the Everest base camp. Trekking in Everest Region gives you choices of trekking up to Thyangboche Monastery, Gokyo Lake or Everest Base Camp. However, Thame valley, Gokyo Lake and Everest Base camp could be combined to tailor your own trekking ideas.
Trekking up to Thyangboche monastery is the shortest of Everest Trek. The trekking to Gokyo Lake offers closer view of the alpine lakes of Gokyo, Cho You (8,201 m) and Everest (8,848 m) and Makalu (8,463 m) from Gokyo Ri.
A trek to the peak of Kala Pattar (18,450 feet) in Everest Base Camp Trek highlights the truly spectacular panorama of Sagamartha (Mt. Everest) and Lhotse (8,383 m) and a visit to the base of Mt. Everest.
