It is more expensive and difficult to get Solukhumbu than to the Annapurna and langtang region . One must either walk for a week or fly to Lukla to get near Everest. The number of trekkers to Everest has increased dramatically because of the publicity the mountain has received from several sources. Solu Khumbu is famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain, Mt.Everest (8848m.), but also for its Sherpa villages and age-old monasteries.

Not only Everest but also other mountain peaks such as Mt. Lhotse , Mt. Nuptse , Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Pumori , Mt. Thamserku , Mt.Kantega, Kwangde and others can be seen from Kala Pattar.
