Khumbu

Trip Planner Asia  /  Nepal  /  Eastern Region  /  Sagarmatha Zone  /  Khumbu
(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: nature, nightlife, museums
Khumbu remains best known as the region that contains the world's tallest peak, Mount Everest. The area represents a dream of mountain climbers from across the globe, but you don't have to climb to the roof of the world to appreciate Khumbu's natural scenery and rich cultural heritage. The friendly Sherpas lead courageous treks and impart their intimate knowledge of the landscape and wildlife to visitors seeking experiences at high--and lower--altitudes. A Khumbu itinerary includes treks through the mountains to the region's numerous villages, probably seeing some mountain goats and danfes--the national bird--along the way. Refuel with local specialties like riki-kur (potato pancakes), tzen (a spiced pate made from millet), and yak cheese. In the build up to your vacation in Khumbu, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Nepal itinerary builder.

Where to stay

Khumbu offers a broad spectrum of accommodations, from luxury hotels to basic lodgings. Expect greater luxury at lower elevations, with things getting more pared down as the altitude climbs. Some avid trekkers stay near the Everest Base Camp, which ensures easy access to tours through the region. Make sure you carry Nepalese rupees, as most lodgings only accept cash in the local currency.
