The Everest base camp trek is recommended as one of the important sites to be visited before one dies. Out of fourteen highest peaks all over the world, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountain vistas including the highest Mt. Everest (8848 m.). The Everest trek is more famous because of the friendly Sherpa people, colorful festivals and the Buddhist monasteries.  In trekking in Nepal, this region is regarded as Khumbu and has been bounded in the Sagarmatha National Park, the world heritage site. Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name of Mt. Everest, the top of the tops. Sherpas, the famous climbers are the dwellers of Khumbu region. The flora and fauna are other jewels of the Sagarmatha National Park, and the story of the Yeti is still a mystery to the rest of the world. Many expedition teams can be observed on this trail during April and May heading higher with an aim to be on the top of the world.
