Overview

You really get best view of Mt. Everest from Syangboche the home of Sherpa in Nepal which is known as Solu Khumbu. They belong to Nyingma-pa Tibetan Buddhist sect and practice their own Buddhist tradition and custom which was brought when they migrated from Tibet. Region north from Jorsale about 113 sq. km is under Sagarmatha National Park. Blue pine, fir and juniper forests grows in lower elevation and birch and rhododendron forests in between 3300 m to 4000 m. Musk deer, Himalayan thar and serow are commonly found. In the past Himalayan wolf and black bear used to be occasionally seen. Now the ecology of the region is under intense pressure due to human habitation and their activities. This trek is famous for close view of Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha) and other famous Himalayan peaks entrenched in the high Himalayas.

The trek to Everest is incomplete without being influenced by the culture of Sherpa of the Khumbu region. Ever since the first successful ascent of Mt. Everest (8848m) by Sir Edmund Hillary the whole community benefited from the influx of tourist who come to enjoy the unique landscape of the high mountain that has been the subject of many books and research. Named it, all famous explorers and mountaineers have traded the path. Ever since the peak XV was spotted as the highest point on earth the whole region came into international focus. 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 When Sir Edmund Hillary created a record for the first time in the history of human being. Since then the attention on Everest have kept on increasing every year.
