Everest Sherpa Cultural trek

Duration: 12 Days   |  

Everest Sherpa cultural trek is a perfect blend of rich Sherpa culture along with a mesmerizing view of the Himalayas. The trail provides a fantastic feel of the ancient Sherpa town and their remarkably unique hospitality makes you feel like home. The trail takes us up to the Sherpa land, which is the home of the indigenous Sherpas and the most famous place to visit in the Khumbu region. The world famous mountaineers who have successfully climbed several peaks and are widely known for their strong climbing feet and courageous hearts come from the land of Sherpas.

Along the way, as trekkers pass through the legendary Tengboche monastery, the center of Sherpa Buddhist culture, they are left enchanted by the incredible craftwork, sacred stones, mani walls and vibrant prayer flags blowing in the wind. The trekkers follow the classic trail to Namche Bazaar, the busiest area in the region. Namche is the junction where Himalayan traders and yak herders meet. The greatest reward you can get in this trek is the breathtaking view of Mt. Everest (8848 m), the highest mountain in the world. Our Everest Sherpa cultural trek begins from Lukla airport (2860 m). Our path crosses the Dudh Koshi River and ascends down the narrow gorges from there. On the way, we realize how tiny we are amongst these giant mountains that surround us from all sides.

Colorful prayer flags blowing in the chilly breeze, the path filled with sacred stones and boulders marked with Buddhist prayer inscriptions, commonly known as the mani walls, fills our journey with a magical touch. Trekkers frequently encounter yak caravans and the wobbling bridges that give them a mini heart attack. Even though we do not get to see the legendary Himalayan Yeti, but we sure get to see Barking Deer, Musk Deer and the Himalayan Tahr grazing on the steep slopes. Trekkers cannot resist the urge to take pictures with the shaggy-coated Yaks that pass our way. The highlight of the trip includes the famous short period hike to Everest View Hotel. This is an amazing hiking to acclimatize yourself and the views from Everest view hotel is stunning. You sure do not want to miss it!

Namche Bazzar is a delightful settlement set in a horseshoe-shaped mountain amphitheater. Trekkers who wish to take back cool souvenirs with them get a chance to buy goodies as Namche Bazaar sets up a Saturday market where merchandise of daily use, mountaineering souvenirs, meat, yak trail, and butter are traded. The trekkers get a pleasant feel as they pass through the Tengboche Monastery situated at an altitude of 3880 m. The place is surrounded by firs and rhododendrons and the view is magnificent as you get a close-up view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse (7861 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812 m), Mt. Kwangde (6187 m) and Mt. Thamserku (6623 m). A day at Khumjung village will fill us with tales of the legendary Yeti and a view of Yeti's scalp at the local monastery. Everest Sherpa Cultural trek will truly and beautifully spark your wanderlust!
