Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Eastern Region / Sagarmatha Zone / Sagarmatha National Park / Khumbu Glacier
The Khumbu Glacier is located in the Khumbu region of northeastern Nepal between Mount Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. With elevations of 4900m at its terminus to 7600m at its source, it is the world's highest glacier. The Khumbu Glacier is followed for the final part of the trail to one of the Everest Base Camps. The start of the glacier is in the Western Cwm near Everest. The glacier has a large icefall, the Khumbu Icefall, at the west end of the lower Western Cwm. This icefall is the first major obstacle—and among the more dangerous—on the standard south col route to the Everest summit. It is also the largest Glacier of Nepal. The end of Khumbu Glacier is located at 27.932N and 86.805E.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Sagarmatha National Park holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Khumbu Glacier and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Incredibly beautiful. Well worth the hike.
It's the base camp for Himalayan rallies. Great views of the mountains covered with snow. Magnificent glacier and can be viewed from here, captivating scenic beauty of all the places. The base camp allows camping with permission. With absolutely chilled weather conditions camping here is difficult.
