Nepal Tourism Website
The website has a lot of functionally useful information about Nepal, touring and trekking, various places around the country and tourism basics. The home page doesn’t have much on it that’s immediately engaging, but the menu is straightforward and delivers what it advertises. Here is an example of information about the Everest region.
From the website:
“The trail to Everest also begins at Lukla, the airport at 2,850 m. The trail climbs up the Dudhkoshi River Valley, and the following day brings you to the legendary Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar in the Khumbu (3,500 m), which is the staging point for expeditions to Everest and other peaks in the area. Above Namche lie the traditional villages of Khunde and Khumjung. Khumjung which is the largest village in the Khumbu lies at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. The Khunde Hospital, maintained by Himalayan Trust, and Khumjung School, the original Hillary School set up in 1960, lie here.”
