Nepal is a country that is blessed with one of the most beautiful Himalayan terrains and sublime landscapes on the planet. Trekking in the Everest region of Nepal is a famous adventure activity done by thousands of trekkers and travelers every year. With eight of the ten tallest mountain peaks in the world situated in the country, including Mount Everest- the tallest mountain on Earth, Nepal certainly does not lack in trekking destinations.
Among the many trekking destinations in the country, trekking in the Everest region is the most sought after and the most popular. The Everest region, also known as the Khumbu region, is one of the most visited regions for trekking in Nepal. It is situated on northeastern Nepal on the Nepalese side of Mount Everest. The region is a major Sherpa settlement of the Himalayas and has an amazing mountainous landscape. Ranging in elevations from 3,300 meters (11,000 feet) to the 8,848 m (29,029 ft) summit of Mount Everest, the Everest region includes the famous Sagarmatha National Park and popular villages like Namche Bazaar and Tengboche. From the alarmingly dramatic airstrip at Lukla to the Base Camp of Mount Everest, the Everest region is a gorgeous cornucopia of Himalayan views and mesmerizing sights. Khumbu, with less than four thousand inhabitants, receives anything from ten to twenty thousand trekkers a year, and twice as many porters. With a very fragile environment, the Khumbu region is filled with many highlights and spectacular natural elements that range from mountains peaks, sapphire mountain lakes, glaciers, high passes, and beautiful ethnic villages.
