Everest Region Trips & Itineraries
The Everest region, covering the northern Solu Khumbu is at 3rd top tourist destination in Nepal after Kathmandu Valley and the Annapurna region. This vast region is a magnet for mountaineers and trekkers. Less diverse than the Annapurna region geographically and culturally, this region nevertheless offers trekkers the advantage of infiltrating the very heart of the Khumbu Himal, the most imposing massif in the Himalayas. Inhabited by a few ethnic groups, including the Sherpa people who are the majority there, the Everest region allows an incursion into Tibetan Buddhist culture.
