About this collection

The Sagarmatha National Park – a place where you can find not only the world's highest mountain Sagarmatha – Everest – Chu-mu-lang-ma Feng, but also several other eight-thousanders like Lhotse, Cho Oyu and the nearby Makalu. Seven and six-thousanders, stunning glaciers, mountain streams.

It's an area which is incredibly tough to live in, but also idyllic for this very reason. It's a land of hardworking people, natives of several tribes, the most famous of which are the Sherpas. Their name became a synonym for carriers who have tremendous strength and stamina.

There's also one of the world's most beautiful treks – Three Passes, which takes you to Everest via three mountain passes: Renji La, Cho-La and Kongma La. When on this trek, you get to places that reward you with views of Everest, and, what's even better, taking this way allows you to avoid the crowds traveling to the Everest Base Camp in a form of a long procession in the direction of the highest peak in the world. The whole area is very photogenic. Within an almost ten-day walk, trekkers conquer three saddles at an altitude of five thousand meters, climb three five-thousanders that offer stunning views of Everest – Kala Patthar and Gokyo Ri also put Cho Oyu within your sight. If trekkers get lucky, they can also go for a swim in numerous mountain lakes, but this is only for those who are really tough. Even during sunny days, one must realize that the average altitude at which the lakes are located is about 4,000 meters.
