The Pyramid International Laboratory/Observatory high altitude scientific research center is located at 5,050 m (16,568 ft.) a.s.l., in the Khumbu Valley, Sagarmatha National Park, at the base of the Nepali side of Everest. 
 

Since 1990, it has been offering the international scientific community a priceless opportunity to study the environment, climate, human physiology and geology in a remote mountain protected area.  The Pyramid is jointly managed by the Ev-K2-CNR Committee and the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). To date, 520 scientific missions have been carried out there by 220 researchers from 143 different scientific institutions in several nations.

The three-story glass, aluminum and steel structure, with its stable square-based pyramid shape [13.22 m (43.37 ft.) x 8.40 m (27.56 ft.) high], is equipped with advanced technological instrumentation and facilities, including telecommunications and internet.  It is totally self sufficient, using only renewable energy provided by a large solar power system.  Waste is managed in collaboration with the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee according to local regulations.
