Everest View and Sherpa Culture

12 days, Grade B+

Tengboche Monastery in snowStupa in Khumbu regionMani stonesKantegaWatch trip slide showAn introductory trek through the heartland of Sherpa country to view the highest mountain in the world. This trek explores the culture of the Himalayan Sherpa visiting the important monasteries of the region, Sir Edmund Hilary’s Himalayan Trust school, and the less visited and beautiful village of Phortse. Leaving Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi River up to Namche Bazaar with spectacular bridges along the way. The stunning scenes from the view point here at the Sherpa capital will rival any place in the world. We then climb out of Namche to the splendid views of Everest, Nupse and Ama Dablam from Khumjung, where we can see remains of the elusive Yeti! After crossing the Dudh Koshi we arrive at Phortse. The trail then carries on following the Imja River up to Tengboche with the monastery situated majestically on the ridge above the valley. There is plenty of opportunity to seek the mountain fauna including pheasants, Himalayan Thar, musk deer, eagles and griffin vultures.

In Kathmandu you will have a chance to see the finest Newari architecture, experience the hustle and bustle of the bazaars and most of all enjoy the hospitality of the wonderful Nepali people.

    It was nice to be on trek with a leader who is clearly held in high regard. Other people commented that they had found Siling very helpful & informative, these were not people on trek with the company, but others he had helped along the way
