Mount Everest Location

Well, Everest is famous all over the world and lies in the country Nepal (a south Asian country). It falls on the Eastern part of Nepal named Solukhumbu district in Khumbu Region.

Mount Everest is located in the Mahalangur Himalaya Range of Asia. It has an elevation of Nepal and China. The border of China and Nepal runs on its summit point. So, Everest is half on both sides.

This highest peak is surrounded by many other peaks like Lhotse (8,516 meters), Nuptse (7,855 meters), and Changtobse (7,580 meters). The geographical location of Everest is 27 ° 59 ‘north latitude, 86 ° 55’ east longitude and about 160.51 km (99.74 miles) from Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal).

Different names of Mount Everest

Before giving this mountain name as Everest, it has so many names back then. People of Nepal call it Sagarmatha they still do, it means Sagar (sky) and Matha (forehead) because of a high peak. People from Tibet named it as a Chomolungma means holy mother in their languages.

It has several common and local names but it was named as Mount Everest in 1960 in the honored of Sir George Everest (the first person to climb Mount Everest along with Tenzing Norgay- a Nepalese mate at that time). Before officially naming this peak people used to say the third poll too.

Visit Nepal 2020 is near. If you are planning to visit Nepal and Everest Region there are so many trek options available. You can view their Itinerary and choose plan days on EBC (Everest Base Camp) Trek or can pick Gokyo Lake Trek to captive all those beautiful moments of your lifetime. Island Peak Climbing and Mera Peak Climbing are the trending packages of Everest Thrill

The best season to visit or climb Everest is on pre-monsoon (March, April, and May) and on post-monsoon (October, November, and December). On this time you will get a chance to see beautiful Namche Bazar, high Peak mountains, Sherpa culture, and local Lifestyle along with Sagarmatha National Park.

It is cheap from the Northern side to visit Everest than of Tibet side.  And one more thing Helicopter is not allowed in the Tibet area if you want to take mountain Flights. If you are an adventure seeker better to go Lukla Airport.

Tenzing Hillary Airport is also known as Lukla Airport situated in Khumbu Region of Solukhumbu district. It falls under the Province No.1 of Eastern Nepal. It is a small airport in a Lukla city. It is situated on high altitude(2860) from sea-level and considered as most dangerous Airport in the world.

Lukla Airport was named Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008. It is a small but busy airport of all time. It is a gateway to the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8848 m.). As travel and Trekking gradually increase, this small airport is just the entrance to the Khumbu region or simply to the Everest Treks destination for any airways. You can take a drive to the nearest neighbor states too but it will be too long.

It is a 40-minute flight from Kathmandu, Nepal, to the town of Lukla. It seems a simple trip until you consider that it is 40 minutes of dodging mountains, white knuckles, flying in a small plane to reach what is called the most dangerous airport in the world.

Lukla Airport Map

The only Lukla airstrip, paved in 2001 despite having been built by Kiwi mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary in the 1960s, is 1,729 feet long. In contrast, the famous and short and delightful beachside runway at St. Barth‘s in the Caribbean is 2,133 feet long and the shortest trail in New York-JFK is 8,400 feet. To complicate things further, Lukla’s elevation is almost 9,500 feet putting it the most dangerous Airport of the worlds from the past 20 years.

Strong winds, low clouds and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a very important factor in the frequent cancellation of flights.

Why Tenzing Hillary Airport is among in the list of most dangerous Airport?

  • The track has a very short length of 1,500 feet and ends with a steep drop in the river valley and located at a height of 2,860 meters (9,000 feet).
  • This airport geographic is surrounded by high Himalaya in all sides so only export pilots are allowed.
  • The pilot must also clear a high ridge, turn left, descend abruptly and straighten the plane to land because of the high hill right behind the landing strip.
  • Navigation is only possible by sight so due to a high hill, foggy layers of clouds must terminate flights or delay the flights.
  • The track itself is set at a 12 percent incline, which means that pilots have to be more skilled than anyone else in the world.
  • The landing is made in the ascending slope, to help reduce the speed, while the takeoffs are made downhill, to help increase the speed needed during taking off.
  • This airport is fitted for the thrill-seeking Trekkers.
  • Due to many negativity and challenges made Lukla Airport to be listed on the most Dangerous Lists. But if we look in the positive way this Airport surely made your Trip catchy.

If you get Scared after the first Flights over the Hillary Airport then you have an alternative choice to return back. It may be a little longer route but being stuck on the same place is the worst if you have a bucket full of opportunity.

From Lukla, the nearest bus stations are in Phaplu and Salleri, which are a couple of days walk from the city of Lukla. Buses and jeeps depart several times a day from small towns back to Kathmandu. The other route is to take the seven-day walk to Shivalaya, or add an additional half-day and continue to Jiri, although there is a small point since the Shivalaya bus passes through Jiri and the road follows the old trekking route. – and then take the express bus back to Kathmandu.

What is Visit Nepal 2020?

The campaign is led by the joint forces of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation, and Nepal Tourism Board. The aim of this campaign is to influence people from around the world to discover Nepal 2020.

They’ve also set a target, which is an astounding 2 million tourists. Visit Nepal 2020 is the third promotional campaign initiated at such a huge level by the ministry and board duo. The first one was Visit Nepal ’98, and the second one was Nepal

Tourism Year 2011. The movements targeted to bring a minimum of 1 million tourists to Nepal in the year 1998 and 2011 respectively.

Plans and Preparation by the Ministry and the Board

To promote the campaign, the logo of the Visit Nepal 2020 campaign has already been launched. It has been introduced in three languages – English, Chinese, and Japanese so that they could reach as many prospective tourists as possible. The official websites of the ministry, Nepal Tourism Board and many other agencies involved in the tourism sector has been promoting this campaign for quite some time now.

To help tourists have the best experience during their stay in the country, and to make Visit Nepal 2020 successful, the government has ensured to work on and bring positive changes in the crucial aspects that impact tourism.

One of such aspects is roads and transportation. Since roads are one of the major means of transportation in the country, and that their condition is worsening by the day, they need serious work and improvement. The condition of roads in the country has been one of the major reasons why tourists are demotivated to travel around and even enter the country in the first place.

Another such aspect is the corruption that exists in the sector. The tendency of companies, or people in general, working in the tourism sector in Nepal to charge an unfair price, and at the same time offer sub-standard services to the tourists. Such actions cause them to have a bitter experience. In the long run, this will generate negative publicity for Nepal’s tourism sector, and defame the country altogether.
The government and the ministry have been working together to control such practices, by targeting such service providers and decommissioning them. Their target, by 2020, is to create an atmosphere in the tourism sector where all tourists are treated fairly and are offered the best experience whatsoever.

In addition to all these, there are plans to successfully complete the construction of Gautam Buddha International Airport, and bring it in operation by 2020. The goal is to create more entry points to Nepal, from various parts of the world, make the country more accessible to the tourists. As there is only one international airport/ runway in Nepal, at the moment, it limits the number of tourists visiting Nepal at any given moment.
