In this part of the country, you will be enchanted by the awesome beauty of its landscape and its people who still welcome travelers into their community with open arms. With plenty of uninhabited high ridges offering spectacular view of Makalu, Everest and Kanchanjunga, the festivals and weekly Haatbazaar, you can go from complete solitude to immersing yourself in a diversity of cultures as your heart and soul desires. And if a strenuous excursion is desired, the far eastern region of Nepal offers some of our finest trekking experience, with some excursions reaching 6,100 meters (18,200 feet) in altitude. As Mount Everest - known as Sagarmatha ("head of the sky" or "heaven head") in Nepal- is the highest mountain in the world, it is no surprise that large numbers of mountaineers and trekkers are drawn to the Everest region. The trek to the Everest Region takes one into the Sagarmatha National Park and some of the most outstanding mountain views in the world. The trek goes through the valley of the Dudh Koshi, and passes through spectacular forests of blooming rhododendron, blue pine and fir. The highlights of this trek abundant with high-Alpine wildlife, which includes the Himalayan tahr, musk deer and pikka (mouse hare). Some of the spectacular birds include the snow crow, snow pigeon and the impean pheasant.
