Sagarmāthā National Park is a protected area in the Himalayas. The park was created on July 19, 1976 and was inscribed as a Natural World Heritage Site in 1979.
The Sagarmatha is an exceptional area with dramatic mountains, glaciers and deep valleys, dominated by Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world (8,848 m). Several rare species, such as the snow leopard and the lesser panda, are found in the park. The presence of the Sherpas, with their unique culture, adds further interest to this site.http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/120/
