Thinking to trek, and destination is Everest. But the fairly crowded Everest Trail comes in mind of all people when they think of it. So, here we alter our plan a bit staying away from the main trail and of course absorbing the much of culture and panoramas of Everest and this is why we call this trek - Everest Panorama.
Everest Trek in justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain (8,848m) but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals and monasteries.The story of the yeti is still a mystery in the world from the Khumbu region. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags prayer wheels and intricately carved Mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler..
Sherpa religion (a mixture of Buddhist and animist) and culture have evolved from thousands of years of myths, stories and strong religious practice. Those of us attempting to understand this culture soon enter an endless maze of woven stories and tales. With the advent of tourism a considerable amount of the Khumbu economy now revolves around caring for trekkers and climbers. Though originally from Tibet, Tibetans and Sherpas are culturally very different from each other, depending on region of origin.
While you trek in Nepal, lets say in most of the places you'll have an options or more to the extension of your plan to climb lesser known peaks designated as "Trekking Peaks". And why the Everest Region to be an exception? Here, it has -
Island Peak (6,160m) / Mera Peak (6,654m)
Lobuche (6,119m) / Parchamo (6,187m)
