The journey to Mt. Everest begins when you are transported to a distant world of exploration and the mythical village of Serka Zong. A canopy of prayer flags, an ornamental monastery, intricately carved totems and a garden of stone carvings of the yeti clutching the mountain will immerse yourself in a far-off realm. The yeti's role as protector of the sacred mountain is reinforced in this detailed environment rich in culture and tradition.
Despite forewarnings, the proprietors of Himalayan Escapes Tour Company entice explorers to embark on a rugged train journey to the mystical Mt. Everest.

This ride rocks!! The whole theme just pulls at my heart. The ride itself is so intense. It's the best as you whip around and even go backwards. I have to say anything more than 2 rides in a row, it more than enough. Otherwise, it starts to mess with my head and my stomach. It's fun though while it lasts! Ha!! Read reviews by this author

OHMEGOSH! I can't say enough how much I love this ride. From the theming through the queue to the ride itself, Disney has really outdone themselves. This is such a blast and every member of my family gives it two thumbs up! Read reviews by this author

This is my favorite attraction in the Animal Kingdom! The queue theming is amazing - an attraction in its own right - and the roller coaster component of the attraction has the BEST story line EVER! And (spoiler alert) who doesn't love going backwards fast?!

Fast pass this ride AND stand in line for it. It is great! We stood in line while waiting for our fastpass as it was the first place we went on an Early Magic Hours in Animal Kingdom. The line moves very quickly and it was well worth it. One of the best rollercoasters Disney has to offer. The Yeti is cool. I loved going through the line and learning about Everest as well. Great ride. Must Do This!!!!!!! Read reviews by this author
Awesome! Fun ride. 1/31/2006 by Ser Alan
We recently got an Annual Passholder sneak peek of the Animal Kingdoms latest thrill ride, Expedition Everest has great Himalayan theming and the ride itself is really fun! This has rapidly, after only one ride, worked itself into my personal top five Disney World attractions. Not only that, there are tasty gourmet iced teas to be found at a new stand in Asia; that finished off our Animal Kingdom visit nicely. The only downside to the ride was the incredibly long line (about 50 minutes). So go grab your fast pass first thing because they were gone by the time we got there at 2PM!!
