Everest (8848 m.), highest peak of the world, either you have walk 10 days through middle hills of Solu or you can save energy by taking a flight to lukla. The walk with Sherpa’s can be unforgettable and a very touching way to know about their lifestyle and cultures.

There is a Tengboche Monastery, leading Buddhist center in Khumbu, surrounded by astonishing views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam, which is across the canyon from Khunde. There is good provision of rest houses, lodges and camping sites.
