Sagarmatha National Park was selected as one of the project sites of the Hindu Kush-Karakoram-Himalaya (HKKH) Partnership Project funded by the Government of Italy and implemented by IUCN, ICIMOD, CESVI and Ev-K2-CNR. The aim of the HKKH Partnership Project was to develop institutional capacities for systemic planning, management and research in protected areas of the Hindu Kush-Karakoram-Himalaya mountain complex. The project conducted applied research, compiled databases and developed a Decision Support Toolbox (DST) to support the management of SNP. The “View of a High Place” has been put together as a means to disseminate the information compiled by the project in the form of Geographic Information System (GIS) and satellite-based maps for general users. The unparalleled mountain scenery, high-altitude ecosystem and culture of Sagarmatha National Park and its Buffer Zone (SNPBZ) attract visitors from many different countries. In 2008 alone, the Park received 30,000 visitors from over 90 different countries. We hope that this book will of interest to the visitors from all over the globe wanting to know more about this magical place. The book will also be equally useful to researchers and students interested in the region who need a quick overview before they initiate their work. Keeping in mind that “a picture tells a thousand words,” this book integrates maps and photographs as much as possible and keeps the written text to a minimum.
