Under the majestic figure of Mount Everest, the Khumbu region offers one of the best treks in the planet. Khumbu is also the home to legendary Sherpas. From the well-trodden trail to Everest Base camp, this region offers a wide range of trekking experiences in the remote wilderness. Although Everest Basecamp is the ‘Most Visited’ place, Kalapathar provides the best view of the Mount Everest and its surrounding peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse. Generally trek to the Everest Basecamp starts from Lukla but views of high Himalayan peaks can be seen only after passing through Namchebazzar, the Sherpa capital of Khumbu.
