Mount Everest

The World’s Most Famous Mountain

Mount Everest is one of the world's greatest and most iconic sights. A trip to Nepal would not be complete without a glimpse of this majestic summit.

Everest is hugely popular with experienced mountaineers and capable climbers, often referred to as the "holy grail" to those wishing to climb some of the most challenging terrain amid spectacular mountain scenery. If you'd rather keep your feet on lower ground, it's well worth finding a great spot to see the sun rise behind the mountain; it will surely take your breath away. We recommend visiting the Shigatse valley, a cluster of villages and towns found at the base of Mount Everest, for awe-inspiring views as well as ancient ruins and local markets.
