Everest Region Trekking
The Khumbu or Everest region is the most popular trekking area in Nepal. It would probably be the most popular destination, but it is more difficult to get to Solu Khumbu than to the Annapurna area. To get Everest, you must either walk for 10 days/7 days/ 20 days or fly to Lukla or you can startt trek from Jiri or Phaplu a remote mountain airstrip where flights are notoriously unreliable. Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8,848 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 (5,340) meters. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kalapattar, an unassuming (5,545)-meter bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7.145 meters).
