Sagarmatha National Park

Sagarmatha National Park is best reached by flying to Lukla with a flight time of 30 minutes and then by chartering a plane to Syangboche. It is also possible to trek to Sagarmatha or Everest Base Camp. Due to the mountainous geography of Nepal, six National Parks have been created in this incredible terrain. You will find here rhododendron, pine, oak, alpine firs, and birch forests. Alpine flowers blossom in the Himalayan valleys and meadows with the backdrop of the majestic Himalayan snow clad peaks. Sagarmatha is probably the most famous due to the many opportunities it gives trekkers and nature lovers to enjoy great walking and spectacular views.

Covering an area of 1148 sq. km. and extending from Monjo-Jorsale (2800m) just below Namche Bazaar and concluding at Sagarmatha. (Mt. Everest 8848m) this National Park has the most spectacular mountain scenery and is well known for its fascinating wildlife - especially the pheasants. Danphe or Himalayan Monal can be sighted in flocks near the Tyangboche Monastery. Herds of musk deer, wild goats and sheep such as Thar and Ghoral can be seen on the mountain slopes. Sightings of Snow Leopard are possible - though rare. The Buddhist monasteries scattered across this landscape perpetuate the ethereal quality of this great wilderness.
