The East Nepal Region

The East Nepal Region is home to Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak. Hundreds of tiny mountain villages also dot the landscape.

Many of the people here are farmers. Others work as porters, carrying goods up the mountains, or run small businesses that cater to mountain-trekking tourists.

Abandoned ammunition bunkers still scar the landscape and hearken back to a time when there was intense rebel fighting in the region.
