Everest Base Camp Trekking

Posted by: Admin | Date: February 13, 2010

Everest Base Camp TrekThe Highest Mountain on earth, Everest (8848m) has several names to different people. It is called Mt. Everest to the Westerners and Qomolangma to the Khumbu Sherpas and Tibetans, and to the Nepalese it is called Sagarmatha. The Solukhumbu (Solu) region of Nepal where lies the Mt. Everest ( 8,848 m ) has been a magnet for travelers ever since its opening to foreigners in  1950. This region is famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries with their virtually unchanged unique culture. Solu has received countless trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world. Solukhumbu has developed to a stage where many options are possible from a full-scale expedition with tents and porters to an independent trek using the local lodges. Sagarmatha National Park, established in 1976, covers much of this region. This fascinating land surrounded by high mountains is a real paradise for mountaineers & trekkers.

One can fly to Lukla from Kathmandu or get bus to Jiri to get there. Trek from Jiri to Lukla is a classic trek and best way to acclimatize as well. Gokyo and the Everest Base Camp are the two trekking routes where many people like to go.
