About Mount Everest
Standing proud at 8848 meters above sea level, Mount Everest is the jewel in the mountain crown of Nepal and the mighty king of all the Himalayas. For centuries its inspired awe and daring in mountaineers like no other place on earth, offering up some of the most dramatic vistas and most arduous tracks on the planet.
The world’s highest peak (and still growing) forms one of twelve trekking peaks within the perimeter of the Sagarmatha National Park. Today, the region is well-known for its endearing local hospitality too, and anyone visiting can experience it first hand while making a pit stop at one of the Sherpa villages to acclimatise to the altitude, or while securing the expert help of a Mount Everest tour guide or hired porters (who are again typically indigenous Sherpas) to transverse the trails properly.
Throughout the year, varying climactic conditions open and close many of the trekking routes, with early spring and mid-autumn proving the most popular with visiting climbers. It’s also at this time that the Khumbu region as a whole blooms and withers respectively, offering would-be visitors one of the most high-altitude spectacles of nature on earth.
