Khumjung Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality has placed a signboard at the Everest Base Camp. This signboard, erected ahead of the Everest Base Camp trekking route, now offers a picturesque backdrop for trekkers and climbers to capture their moments.

Previously, trekkers on their journey to the Everest Base Camp would capture photos against the backdrop of rocks. Now, with the installation of these signboards, trekkers can capture memorable photos with the signboards as the backdrop. The Everest Base Camp trek, which leads to the same rocks where the signboards are placed, adds an extra dimension to the experience.

Standing at 5,364 meters above sea level, the Everest Base Camp trek attracts adventurers and tourists alike, seeking unique experiences. Mingma Chhiri Sherpa, the chairman of Khumjung Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality, emphasized the necessity of signboards for incoming tourists and mountaineers embarking on Himalayan expeditions.

According to Sherpa, the rocky landscape where the signboards are placed has been transformed into a convenient spot for trekkers and climbers, facilitating their journey and adding to their overall experience. He further added, “Public toilets for tourists will also be available from this spring season onwards.”

The signboards prominently feature photographs of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, commemorating their historic ascent of Mount Everest. These signboards not only serve as landmarks for trekkers but also pay homage to the rich history of Everest expeditions.

For mountaineers, trekking companies, and enthusiasts venturing into the Himalayas, these signboards mark the gateway to their adventures.
