  • Trekking in Sagarmatha National Park is an experience of unforgettable life where you will have the privilege to admire the Majesty of the great Sagarmatha Mt. Everest. Personally you marked my life and remember with great emotion that feeling of finding in the Himalayas with the view to the "roof of the world" is a feeling of indescribable fullness. They are different areas where you can admire him along the way: the first "appearance" of the Everest is when you raise to Namche Bazaar and after having crossed the suspension bridge high and impressive (twice), I suggest you go and attentive when right you you find the existing trees with the point of rest where are toilets and selling mandarins there among the trees, with luck you can see him. The observation point near Namche Bazaar, is just twenty minutes walking and from there you can see him accompanied by the Nuptse (7, 861msnm) and Lhotse (8516 m). Now well both on the road to Tengboche (like from this population) also is possible to see it, to follow the path towards the EBC. From Base Camp does not have sight, it is necessary to do so from the Kala Pattar (5643 m). Some data with respect to the Trekking: 1.-during the tour there are some lodge where you can stay overnight and have restaurant service. 2 wait no heating in the rooms, it is essential to bring Sleeping bag for freezing temperatures. 3 bring crampons, the morning some points especially after Tengboche route have ice. 4 you can buy shoes, clothing and accessories from mountain at Namche Bazaar. 5. during the Trek if you hear the Yaks "cascabel" seeks to protect you to the side of the mountain and never stand beside the empty or precipice, they are tame animals, but a faux pas or the volume of merchandise that load may cause a fatal accident. 6. important section of the route has stones placed according to the winding way of rustic steps field, which implies a greater effort and attendance status, take it into account during your fitness, your knees will thank you. 7. do not forget to bring in your kit some ointment to promote muscle welfare. Important: In sections after Tengboche and product of ice settled on the road in the morning the Yak can slide so protect yourself in the best possible way, in my experience as a result, and despite finding myself as far away from his step , your slip caused that you damage my jacket, with its horn were mere inches which avoided a fatal crash and takes into consideration that there are no medical services. (Only in Namche Bazaar or Lukla). Enjoy this unique experience living life to the fullest because... life... is a trip!

  • He remembers nothing more so here not the jaw down works out who! :-) Enjoy one of the most impressive places I've seen on this world page, surely! However, the journey is there not a relaxed walk. Everyone can do that, regardless whether athletes or more intimate man. Whether but altitude sickness you caught you will notice if you're also at the appropriate height only. Have fun with the try, it's worth!

  • Recommend taking your sledge for the way back down and if your good enough you can do 360air off green boots on the way, i chose to run it up last time beating my personal best of 8min 46secs. Although a gentle jogs much more suited as you'll see more. Views - not all that although there's a pay telescope 10m left of the summit, recommend grabbing coffee and a packet of oxygen to sniff from the shop just before the summit.
  • Great place for an easy run, with an amazing view! Would appreciate better if the souvenir shops stopped trying to sell me frozen pieces of dead mountaineers. Also, there are no restrooms, which can be annoying if you ate too much curry on the way.
  • Would have rated it 5 stars except there were not enough disabled car parks and it was hard getting my wheelchair out. I was exhausted before attempting the climb so elected to be beamed up to the summit. The effort was worth it for the view - pretty much as depicted in photos but first time I have had full panorama!
  • An unique identity, standing tall and strong and ruling the world with it's own beauty and nature. Reaching at the top of the Everest is know as the longest hiking & climbing to the topest point of the world. All the athlete and hiking lovers has their dream to blow their national flag with pride in heavily blowing wind. As i am looking forward to take a warm breath in that peak where everyone wants to go ............
  • Nice place! Takes just 15 minutes to reach the peak. I go there for my morning walk everyday. Refreshing. I would prefer a bit more greenery though. Please plant some trees when you go there. Peace ✌️
