Description

The Sagarmatha National Park (sagaramāthā rāṣṭriya nikuñja) is a protected area in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal that is dominated by Mount Everest. It encompasses an area of 443 square miles in the Solukhumbu District. In the north, it shares the international border with the Qomolangma National Nature Preserve of Tibet and extends to the Dudh Kosi river in the south. Adjacent to the east is the Makalu Barun National Park.

The park contains the upper catchment areas of the Dudh Kosi river, Bhotekoshi river basin and the Gokyo Lakes. It is largely composed of rugged terrain and gorges of the high Himalayas, including the world's highest peak Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest). Other peaks above 20,000 feet are Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Cholatse, Thamserku, Nuptse, Amadablam and Pumori.
