Female trekker on Kala Pattar, Mt Pumori in background, Himalaya. Mount Everest National Park. This is the highest national park in the world, with the entire park located above 3,000 m ( 9,700 ft). This park includes three peaks higher than 8,000 m, including Mt Everest. Therefore, most of the park area is very rugged and steep, with its terrain cut by deep rivers and glaciers. Unlike other parks in the plain areas, this park can be divided into four climate zones because of the rising altitude. The climatic zones include a forested lower zone, a zone of alpine scrub, the upper alpine zone which includes upper limit of vegetation growth, and the Arctic zone where no plants can grow. The types of plants and animals that are found in the park depend on the altitude.[url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/5699034][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/nepal_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/9275573][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/trekking_himalaya_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/9090200][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/people_nepal_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/7554738][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/trekking_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/7554846][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/everest_national_park_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/7432964][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/mount_everest_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/7616345][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/ama_dablam_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/9150575][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/outdoors_laptop_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/9275555][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/outdoors_binoculars_380.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.istockphoto.com/search/lightbox/9150601][img]http://bem.republika.pl/istock/outd
