The Everest Trek through the Solu, Khumbu and Gokyo regions follows the path of the mediaval trans-Himalayan trade route established by the Sherpas. From Jiri to Namche and Everest Base Camp, the 175 kilometre, 24 day Everest Trek passes through the some of the most magnificent mountain scenery on earth. The view of Mount Everest from Tengboche Monastery is without equal. Higher up the Khumbu Valley there is a awesome close up view of Mount Everest from the summit of Kalla Pattar, a hill within reach of most trekkers. The Khumbu Glacier Icefall provides an impressive mystery for, by a trick of the light, the ice seems to spring from the head of the Khumbu valley.
From Kalla Pattar one can see Everest Base Camp, which during May and October is a hive of activity with commercial mountaineering expeditions using Sherpa guides to get their clients to the summit of Mount Everest. Everyone, clients, guides, Sherpas and trekkers alike all use the Everest Trek to reach Everest Base Camp.
The cultural quality of the area rests on its intimate connection with Tibetan Nyingma Pa Buddhism. Many famous Buddhist saints lived in the area and their legends live on. Lama Sange Dorje was born at Mong La on the Everest Trek and was the first to live at the site of Tengboche Monastery. Everest is known to the Sherpas and Tibetans as Chomolungma or 'goddess mother of the unniverse'.
The environment of the Everest Trek was protected historically by its Buddhist inhabitants, and nowadays by the Sagarmatha National Park. Today you can still see the strange musk deer, the impeyan pheasant and many more native species protected by the park.
