The view of the amazing Khumbu region and the Himalayan range can also be seen in this package of Everest region trekking in Nepal including the magnificent Mt. Everest. The journey will take you up to the Namche Bazaar the hub of Sherpa people of Nepal. The height is relatively normal as the trekkers will hike up to 3880 m from the sea level however they will spend the night at 3440m in Namche Bazaar.
