Many people find the sights along the way rival the climatic views of the world’s highest mountains Solukhumbhu, the home of legendary sherpas. the northern part of solukhumbu area is encompassed in the Everest national park, which was established to protect the fragile environment of this alpine region. To the east of Everest national park is the Makalu Barun national park, a remote and wild stretch of mountain peaks and deep densely forested valleys. To the west is Rolwaling valley, a well protected microcosm of cultures and ecology. Beside Everest there are three other 8000m peaks Lhotse(8516m) Makalu(8463m), Choyo(8201m)and in addition numerous other peaks of lesser altitude but no less stunning. Add to this glacial lakes, rhododendron forests, native flora and fauna, traditional villages and ancient Buddhist monasteries, all go to make this region a spectacular destination.
Gokyo valley is located in the west part of Khumbu and it is far less developed and crowded than its better known neighbour to the east. In fact, Gokyo valley has one traditional permanent settlement.
