Chomolungma” to Tibetans, meaning “Mother Goddess of the Earth”. “Sagarmatha” meaning “Goddess of the Sky”to the Sherpa people, Mount Everest gets its European name from British Superintentant General of the Survey of India 1830-1843, Sir George Everest. The highest mountain on earth has several different names to the westerners, the peak became known as Mt. Everest in 1865. More recently the government of Nepal has given it the name Sagarmatha. The Solukumbu region of Nepal where Mt. Everest lies has been a magnet for travelers ever since its opening to foreigners in 1950. This region is famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain, but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries with their culture virtually unchanged through the centuries. Solukhumbu has received countless trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world. Solukhumbu has developed to a stage where many options are possible from a full-scale expedition with tents and porters to an independent trek using the local lodges.Sagarmatha National Park established in 1976 covers much of the region. This fascinating land surrounded by high mountains is a real paradise for mountaineers and trekkers.
