Unplug. Tune in.
Sagarmatha National Park attracts visitors from all over the world and it is the ideal place to start a new movement. A movement where we understand the importance of local, a movement where we are aware of our actions, a movement where we know our environmental footprint, a movement where we are conscious and take every action in a mindful manner.
At the Visitors Centre, you will find information about Sagarmatha National Park and the Khumbu region including History, Geography, Culture, Climbing & Trekking, Flora & Fauna, as well as the environmental challenges that we are facing and possible solutions.
The Visitor & Learning Centre offers you a variety of information through inspirational experiences at The Film Salon, where films/documentaries will be shown, an exhibition area with digital touch screens with interactive modules, virtual reality stations with exciting visual experiences and physical displays where you can touch, feel and immerse yourself into the solutions.
The content of the Visitor & Learning Centre is put together by IVAR Studio, along with footage captured by Martin Ersdtrom. They hope to provide you with a deeper understanding of the Khumbu region and its people, and inspire positive impact.
In this section we want to show the challenges that have arisen due to the rapid increase in tourism over the years. Interactive maps are used to explain the challenges.
We have started with waste but hope to slowly address water and sanitation issues as well.
Through our various offerings; art and products at the centre, the waste management consultancy to SPCC, and the Carry Me Back initiative, we hope to assist the tourism sector to implement sustainable solutions in the Sagarmatha National Park and set the precedent for sustainable tourism in the Khumbu region.
