Everest Monasteries Trek

The journeying of Sherpa communities and antique monasteries in Everest region – 15 days.

This trek is marvelous, exploring the tall gorge of the Khumbu with enough time to visit communities and monasteries and to observe the implausible welcoming and generosity of the Sherpa. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and walk gradually up to the Dudh Koshi gorge to the capital of Sherpa called Namche. In this place we have enough time to adapt, before following the silence and calm path to the Thame village in the Bhote Koshi gorge. We observe the antique cliff-hugging Buddhist Monastery. Stepping down to Khumjung, we will see the marvelous scenery of Kantega and Thamserku and Nuptse-Lhotse wall with Mt. Everest above.

At Khumjung we will make camp beneath Khumbila Peak which is also called as the home of the patron God of the Khumbu, before marching to Phortse, Pangboche and Thyangboche. The scenery on the way to the path are mind-blowing with the snow covered peaks on all the directions, deep forest, tiny villages, rivers and so on.

Our main and the tallest altitude will be Pangboche which is 3908m and its delightful and perfect monastery. After Pangboche we have to come back Lukla through Thyangboche and Namche. A return back to Kathmandu will finish this heavenly trek. The ideal period for this trek is March and September – December.
