Ewen houses in Khumbu region destroyed
One hundred air miles northeast of Kathmandu, the village of Lukla sits at 9,000 feet and serves as the gateway to the Khumbu Region. Though early reports have been sketchy, several Sherpa climbers who are working on Everest’s north side, in Chinese Tibet, were able to confirm that homes in their villages in Nepal’s Khumbu region were also destroyed.
