Everest Trek with Monasteries and Sherpa Culture

Trip Description

The Everest Trek with Monasteries and Sherpa Culture Tour has been especially designed for those adventurers who also wish to make a cultural journey into the Everest Region. Along with trekking in the region surrounded by Himalaya peaks, culture enthusiasts get to visit ancient monasteries and witness cultural life of the highland Sherpas. Sherpas call Mt. Everest "Chomolongma" or the mother-goddess.  The package would be a great introductory to those wishing for cultural insights into the Sherpa version of Buddhism. The trek passes through the verdant alpine forest and wildlife, raging glacial rivers and waterfalls, stony trails, mountains, and Buddhist monasteries. If we happen to arrive at the season of Mani Rimdu Festival, we will also witness the Buddhist dance spectacle presented each year in the Khumbu region by the monks of Tengboche Monastery.

Sport Adventure's this trek begins from Lukla Airport, the Gateway of the Everest Region. We take steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, the capital of Sherpas, where we are greeted by spectacular mountain vistas. We enjoy the Sherpa village, its culture and monasteries, the mountaineers and wild life museums. From Namche, we head towards Thame, a rather less visited but an exotic Sherpa settlement. Then we discover the Khumjung Valley. From Khumjung via Phortse, Pangboche and Tengboche, we complete our loop at Namche again. Trek back to Lukla for a return flight to Kathmandu.
