The Everest Region Nepal is more than just trekking, it is a milestone in anyone’s life; and some have even described the experience as a journey close to Nirvana. Located in the northeast province of Nepal, this is a colony to dramatic glaciers, deep settlements, several majestic mountains. Trekking to the Everest also provides us an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off to in 1953

Khumbu Valley trekking (also known as the Everest Region) is a region of north eastern Nepal on the side of Mount Everest in Nepal. Khumbu valley is part of the Solukhumbu District, which in turn is part of the Sagarmatha Zone. Reach the highest point on earth or choose to live out your dream by standing at the foot of Mt. Everest (8,848 m). Everest Region is a famous adventure activity done by thousands of trekkers and travelers every year.

Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8848 metres), but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest base camp at an elevation of about 5340 metres. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545-metre bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 metres).

 

Things to See in Everest Region

  1. The Sagarmatha National Park:
    the country’s first national park inscribed as a Natural World Heritage Site. Trekking in Everest region generally includes trekking through the national park’s forests and enjoying its natural perseverance and protection of the region’s floral and faunal life. The Sagarmatha National Park has an exceptional area within its parameters and it covers most of the dramatic mountains of the region, glaciers and deep valleys. Dominated by Mount Everest, the Sagarmatha National Park is a home to several rare species of animals like the Snow Leopard and the Red Panda. The area of the national park represents a major stage of the Earth’s evolutionary history and is one of the most geologically interesting regions in the world with high, young mountains and glaciers creating awe-inspiring landscapes and dominated by the high peaks and coruscating deep-incised valleys. The park contains the world’s highest feature of biodiversity intricately blended with the region’s rich Sherpa culture.
  2. Lukla Tenzing Hillary Airport
    Lukla Airport, which was renamed the Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008, is both extremely small and extremely busy. With its short runaway, steep incline, and quickly changing weather, Lukla has one of the most challenging runways in the world. In fact, for the past 20 years it has been named the most dangerous airport in the world. High winds, low lying clouds and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a huge factor in the frequent cancellation of flights. Lukla is a gateway for Everest region trek.
  3. Explore the Namche Bazaar:
    Namche Bazaar is a town and in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality in Solukhumbu District of Province No. 1 of north-eastern Nepal. It is located within the Khumbu area at 3,440 metres at its low point, populating the sides of a hill. Most Sherpa who are in the tourism business are from the Namche area. Every Saturday morning, Namche Bazaar lights up with its weekly market gusto. The market is a spotlight in the middle of the town, and traders from Tibet and other villages come with the pieces of arts and goods to attract the hearts of their potential customers.
  4. Visit Tengboche Monastery
    Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of Nepal, probably because of its unrivalled backdrop of Mount Ama Dablam. Tengboche Monastery is the leading Buddhist centre in the Khumbu with a residing Rinpoche who blesses pilgrims and travelers to the area. Every October / November, Tengboche Monastery hosts the colorful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with religious gathering, songs, dances, enactments of legends. Visitors are also welcomed to partake in the festivities. Tours of the monastery are conducted every afternoon.
  5. Experiencing Sherpa Culture
    The trek to Everest Base Camp provides trekkers with the opportunity to observe, participate and experience the culture of Sherpa who are the tribe of Tibetan origin living in the lap of Himalaya. They are well known for their skills in mountaineering and thus regarded as expert mountaineers in their local terrain. You can go to different places such as Dudh Koshi, Lukla, and Namche Bazar during the trek. These places depict the lifestyle of Sherpas and help to make ones trip a memorable one.

Best Time to Travel in Khumbu Region:
There are two distinct trekking seasons. The best months to trek to Everest base camp are pre-monsoon (February, March, April and May) and post monsoon (late September, October, November and December) It is possible to make the journey in February and early September but we prefer the above for our treks into Everest base camp. My personal favorites are March, late October and November.

Tourism in Nepal is safe and will remain safe. The Popular tourism destination like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Everest region, Annapurna region, Langtang region, etc. are considered very safe regions. These days a Bandha is rare. The Bandh is a strike called by any political party. However you can expect some change in the itinerary if a Transport strike is called by a political party. Such strike has zero effect in sight seeing in Kathmandu valley or trekking.

The illegal Trekking or Travel agency, trekking operator / tour operator, Individual trekking guide /freelancer, personal website creator for tourism activities are only concerned with their own wealth and often pay their trekking staff very less and in most occasion don’t offer them insurance, proper equipment or any other kind of support so concerning all the adventure trip so to choose the government registered Nepal trekking or travel company is one of the best scheme to concrete your dream in to the reality.

Known as the land of snowy peaks, incredible landscapes, and impressive mountains, Nepal is a country that has culture, adventure, and adrenaline rolled into one. Home to ten of the highest peaks in the world, it is no wonder that this place is frequented by adventure junkies from all over the world. However, during our trip to Nepal, what surprised me the most was the fact that beyond the mighty Himalayan mountains, the country itself is incredibly diverse and lush. Offering tourists a wide array of things to do, Nepal is a country that didn’t disappoint.

1.Before Visiting to Nepal.
Before you head off on your Nepal tour, there are some things you should consider knowing and having, to save you from a bad experience whilst in this stunningly beautiful Himalayan kingdom. Travel insurance, while not a requirement in Neal, is a good thing to have just in case something untoward happens, such as having your wallet stolen or needing hospital care. A good travel insurance does not cost a lot, and can save your life if things go wrong in Nepal. Hospitals in Nepal are not free, and you will need to show an ability to make the payments first. All of the hospitals have affiliations with the major insurance companies, and can quickly and easily validate and verify your travel insurance to take care of the bill, or transfer you to another country or even home, in severe cases.

2. Social Etiquette in Nepal
First and foremost, you‘ll want to know how to greet the locals. The traditional manner of greeting in Nepal involves placing your palms together in a prayer style and saying “namaste” or “namaskar”. Address anyone older than you with respect using the terms “dai” for men and “didi” for women. And avoid stepping over someone‘s outstretched legs or touching anyone with your feet as these are considered impolite.

3. Water Safety in Nepal
If you plan on staying in Nepal for a while, you may want to pack a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not safe for consumption, even if it‘s from your hotel. Remember to also avoid fruit that may have been washed in contaminated water or drinking soft drinks with ice in them, as the ice may have been made from tap water. Stick to bottled water, which can be found in just about every store in the country.

4. Solo women trekking in Himalaya Nepal
Solo trekking not recommends for any female traveler to the Himalayas because of the safety point of views, illness and accidents. It is better to search and find the travel mate or to join the group with fix departure with other trekking agency or hire a guide or porter for safety that helpful to know the local people, language, culture and lifestyle.
