The Solukhumbu region or simply the Everest region is the most visited region in Nepal. Located at the Solukhumbu district of eastern Nepal, and is conserved as Sagarmatha National Park (est. 1976). Nomenclature of the park - Sagarmatha – is a Nepali dialect for Mount Everest.
The national park spans over an area of 1148 sq. km and ranges from 2845 meters all the way up to 8848 meters above the sea level. The park houses more than 118 species of birds and a number of rare animal species such as snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, musk deer, and red panda.
Common vegetation found here within includes blue pines, firs, rhododendron, birch and junipers below 5750m. Above that, the terrain remains under snow and is hostile to shrubs or herbs of any kind. Cold and extreme temperatures are the norms here.
The Everest region also hosts the almighty highest peak in the world i.e. Mount Everest (8848 m) – which is undoubtedly recognized globally - thus making the Everest/Khumbu region of Nepal the most popular trekking destination.
Peaks such as Lhotse (8516 m), Mt Nuptse (7861 m), Mt Pumori (7161 m), Mt Ama Dablam (6812 m), Mt Kantega (6779 m), Mt Thamserku (6623 m) and Kwangde peak (6187 m) including others snowcapped peaks make the topography of this place very unique. Khumbu is also the home to numerous high passes, rivers, glaciers and glacier lakes.
The primary inhabitants of the Khumbu region are Sherpa’s, Magars and other ethnic groups of Tibetan origin. Tibetan influence can be seen in the culture, festivals, houses, and monuments such as monasteries, chortens (Buddhist shrine), and gompas.
