The Everest Region is geographically located in east-northern region of Nepal. Also called Khumbu area, this region is the most popular for trekking among all the other trekking destinations. The Everest region has been proved to be the favorite for most of the trekkers and adventure loving explorers. Along the exquisite view of the snow capped peaks, trekkers can capture breath-taking sceneries of the Everest region. The region is enhanced by "Sagarmatha National Park", established in 1976. It covers an area of 1148 sq.km

The most active part of this region is the Solukhumbu district, which is the home of the Sherpa and where the highest peak of the world "Mount Everest [8848 m]" lies. It’s inspiring to get into and know about the settlement, ethnicity and cultures of the Sherpa people over there. The other major ethnic groups that live in the Everest region are Rais, Tamangs, Bhrahmins and Chhetris. Besides, beautiful animals like mountain goat, musk deer and barking deer can be seen in the forests.

The Everest Region consists of stunning views with rugged mountains and rocky valleys that make the visitors overwhelmed. Passing through alpines, meadows, glaciers and icefalls, it feels lucky to be there. However, avalanches are not so good idea to even watch!

Being There The Everest Region can be accessed by flight. Also, buses from Kathmandu leave to Jiri on a regular basis. The 10 hours of drive takes you to Jiri. By air, the journey takes 35 minutes. Besides, the most convenient route to the Everest Trek is to Lukla. Fights from Kathmandu take off to Lukla too. Another options is to Phaplu, near the district headquarter, which is again serviced with flights. The last option is to Syangboche, which lies above the Namche Bazaar. This option is the most difficult route due to altitude and accommodation reasons.

Tenzing-Hillary Airport also known as Lukla Airport, is a small airport in the town of Lukla, in Khumbu, Solukhumbu district, Sagarmatha zone, eastern Nepal. The airport was renamed as Tenzing-Hillary Airport in January 2008 in honor of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, the first persons to reach the summit of Mount Everest and also to mark their efforts in the construction of this airport. The surrounding terrain, thin air, highly changeable weather and the airport's short, sloping runway make it one of the most challenging landings in the world. The History Channel program Most Extreme Airports ranked it as the most dangerous airport in the world.
