Welcome to Khumbu

Please accept a selection of guides to our local natural history, villages, hiking trails, and high mountain peaks. You’ll also find magazine articles, brochures, and even digital books about Khumbu, including Mt. Everest and the magnificent watershed below. We hope that the more you know about Khumbu, the more you’ll want to protect it.

This collection of stories will grow into a complete library. Please stop by often. We’ll provide a newsletter sign-up list soon, in which we’ll update you on new additions. For now, if you’d like to be on our mailing list, please leave your name and address on the Contact Us page.

When you download a multi-page PDF, we recommend that you download it completely to your computer and open it in Adobe Acrobat. This often reveals bookmarks that aren’t visible when viewed inside a browser.
