Everest Region

Khumbu (also known as the Everest Region is a region of northeastern Nepal on the Nepalese side ofMount Everest. It is part of the Solukhumbu District, which in turn is part of the Sagarmatha Zone. It includes the town of Namche Bazaar as well as the villages of Thame, Khumjung, Pangboche, Pheriche   and Kunde. The Khumbu's elevation ranges from 3,300 metres (11,000 feet) to the 8,848 m (29,029 ft) summit of Mount Everest, the highest place on Earth.Sagarmatha National Park (above Monju) and the Sagarmatha National Park Buffer Zone (between Lukla and Monju) are enclosed within the Khumbu region.The Khumbu is a glacier believed to be the result of the last great Ice Age, ~500,000 years ago.

The Khumbu or Everest region is the most popular trekking area in Nepal. It is the most popular destination in the world . To get near Everest, you must either walk for several days or fly to Lukla, a remote mountain airstrip.
Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain (8848 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 5340 metres. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545-metre bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 metres).
Other than the problem of access, the other major complication to an Everest trek is the high likelihood of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). This potentially deadly disease, commonly known as altitude sickness, is caused by climbing too quickly to a high elevation. If you suffer symptoms of altitude sickness and cannot go to base camp, you can still make a worthwhile trek to less ambitious destinations such as Namche Bazaar, the administrative headquarters of the Khumbu region; Khumjung or Thame more typical Sherpa villages; or the famous Tengpoche Monastery. From Tengpoche you will have an excellent view of Everest and its more spectacular neighbour Ama Dablam (6856 metres).
