According to legendary history of Kirat, there were 16 Kirat brothers called Shorha Khambu, they ruled over this land and used to bring their sheep for grazing and hunting deers around the Khumbu valley before the Sherpa came from Riu Kharta valley of Tibet. Thus, the word Khumbu was changed from Shorha Khambu to Solukhumbu. It has been 300 years since Sherpa people came from Tibet to this place and habited in this valley. Before knowing the Mt. Everest or Nepali Name Sagarmatha, Mt. Everest had local name given by Kirant and Sherpa called ''Chomolungma'' Baburam Acharya (1888–1971) was a Nepalese historian and literary scholar who coined the name Sagarmatha for the mountain better known as Mount Everest or Chomolungma. It was 1841 when an obscure peak in the Himalayas was recognized as the tallest mountain in the world by a British survey team led by Sir George Everest, and whom Mount Everest was named after in 1865. Today, climbers from across the world attempt to scale its mighty face.
