The Everest or Solu Khumbu region is the most popular trekking area of Nepal. Since the successful ascent of Mt. Everest, the Khumbu region has enjoyed international attention. Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8848 meters), but also for its Sherpa villages, the historic monasteries and mighty glaciers. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest base camp at an elevation of about 5340 meters. But for the better view of Everest, most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545 meter bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 meters). The base camp is a place of glory. It is a place from where many have looked upon Everest with hope and wondered what tomorrow’s climb will bring. The base camp bears the memory of many celebrations and even more admissions of defeat.
