Everest Trek through the Solu, Khumbu and Gokyo regions follows the path
of the mediaval trans-Himalayan trade route established by the Sherpas.
Jiri to Namche and Everest Base Camp, the 175 kilometre, 24 day Everest
Trek passes through the some of the most magnificent mountain scenery
on earth. The view of Mount Everest from Tengboche Monastery is without
equal. Higher up the Khumbu Valley there is a awesome close up view of
Mount Everest from the summit of Kalla Pattar, a hill within reach of
most trekkers. The Khumbu Glacier Icefall provides an impressive mystery
for, by a trick of the light, the ice seems to spring from the head of
the Khumbu valley.
Kalla Pattar one can see Everest Base Camp, which during May and October
is a hive of activity with commercial mountaineering expeditions using
Sherpa guides to get their clients to the summit of Mount Everest. Everyone,
clients, guides, Sherpas and trekkers alike all use the Everest Trek to
reach Everest Base Camp.
cultural quality of the area rests on its intimate connection with Tibetan
Nyingma Pa Buddhism. Many famous Buddhist saints lived in the area and
their legends live on. Lama Sange Dorje was born at Mong La on the Everest
Trek and was the first to live at the site of Tengboche Monastery. Everest
is known to the Sherpas and Tibetans as Chomolungma or 'goddess mother
of the unniverse'.
environment of the Everest Trek was protected historically by its Buddhist
inhabitants, and nowadays by the Sagarmatha National Park. Today you can
still see the strange musk deer, the impeyan pheasant and many more native
species protected by the park.
