The snow-capped summit peak pierces the eastern sky in Nepal. It stands like a sentinel, challenging the rising sun as its rays are forced to bend around its lofty heights. The worlds highest mountain is the number one attraction in this tiny nation; and it never fails to delight and impress visitors who make the journey to the top of the world.
Mt. Everest stands 8,848 meters (29,029 ft) and is surrounded itself by a number of 8,000 meter peaks that rank in the top 14 of the worlds highest mountains. There are no roads to the Everest region access is only by the traditional Nepali way of travel: trekking.
And what a trek! Its not just going up and down hill; it is passing by roaring mountain streams, dancing waterfalls that cascade off the peaks and quaint little villages where people live as they have for centuries.
Its a cultural delight as you are immersed in the various cultures of the mountain people. There are Sherpa, Gurung, Tamang, Rai and more ethnic groups who live in peace and harmony with their neighbors. Ancient Buddhist monasteries dot the high landscapes, and you can actually see the scalp of a yeti preserved at the monastery at Dingboche.
You can choose many different routes to Everest. Some range in high popularity with travelers like Everest Base Camp to the more remote Gokyo Region which is often ignored by trekkers, but is filled with beautiful sacred lakes and scenery that will leave you speechless.
The trails range anywhere from moderate to difficult, depending upon the type of trek you choose. Budget Adventure Treks Expeditions can put together the right package for you. Treks vary from just five days to over a month, so there are plenty of options.
