Abstract: This thesis scrutinizes the production of body, landscape, and space in the Khumbu region of Nepal, better known internationally as the Everest region, where the Sherpas people have established themselves for nearly five centuries. The analysis underpinning this study draws its concepts from the field of the anthropology of the environment. If on the one hand the Khumbu landscape mirrors the rich texture of traditional Sherpa practices, on the other hand the current development of touristic means of production and the engagement of both conservation and development initiatives multiply the total numbers of social agents accountable for its production and aggregate the Khumbu in a space swept by the capitalist mode of production. This thesis demonstrates the impacts of the respatialisation of the Khumbu on the lives of its inhabitants and on their environment. Moreover, natural resource management practices and land ownership count among the central themes in the arguments.
