Tibet - Getting to know Everest National Park

Qomolangma, the Chinese name for Mount Everest, translates to 'Goddess Mother of the World'. You only need to see her from up close to understand why people are so often moved to such superlatives. Everest National Park (Qomolangma National Nature Reserve) contains four of the six highest peaks in the world, and runs along the border with Nepal, from where most ascents begin. The Tibetan side commands views of Everest’s formidable North Face, which are utterly mesmerising even during the summer, when much of the mountain’s upper reaches are wreathed in cloud. This is one of those rare destinations that never fails to surpass expectations.
