The trek ends with flight to Kathmandu. Though the mountain is named Sagarmatha by the Nepalese and Chomolongma by the Tibetan (Chinese) yet the name of Sir George Everest after whom the name was given has become synonymous with the peak itself and the region. After the British Swiss made 2 serious attempt to reach the summit; in 1952 Raymond Lambert with Tenzing reached 8500 meter in their second attempt. As a result they prepared unwittingly Teng Sherpa for the British expedition to help them summit the peak of Everest in 1953 for the first time in the history of human being. Since then the attention on Everest have kept on increasing every year.
