Only one hundred and fifty kilometers  from Kat­hmandu as the crow flies lies Khumbu high mountain area, which is home not only to the hard Sherpa nation, but mainly to the highest mountain in the world – Mount Everest (8848 m asl). Take the trek to this mountain monumental area in Nepal and enjoy the views of a wide range of beautiful mountains is the same experience and obligation for mountain lovers as journey to Mecca for Muslims. The center of the area is the Dudh Koshi River, to which flow the smaller rivers from all the sides of the glacial valley. The main Himalayan ridge separates the Khumbu, or more precisely Nepal, from the arid Tibet. The vast majority of tourists aim only to Everest Base Camp and to monumental view from Kala Patthar, but Khumbu offers much more. So put on the boots and start discovering!
