Trip Code: ESV

House in the Everest Region

Sherpa Village Trek in the Everest region highlights village and culture. Sherpa village trek is  named after two most popular villages of the Khumbu area- Tengboche (3867m)
and Khumjung (3780m) located within Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site. During the trek you will visit one of the largest Sherpa villages known as  Khumjung located close to  Mount Khumbila.  Here you will visit a famous Khumjung monastery as well as High school funded by  Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust. At this village modern communications facilities such as the internet, mobile and landline phones are easily available.

While trekking to Tengboche and Khumjung villages you will see Sherpas working in the fields growing potatoes and taking care of yaks in the pastures. Working at such a high altitude about 13,100 ft. has long been part of their way of life, but apart from agricultural occupation most of Sherpas are involved in adventure tourism especially in mountaineering. It is universally accepted that Sherpas are the most efficient mountaineers in the world.

The village of Tengboche is a religious center for all Sherpa community of the Everest region. It offers truly Himalayan culture and observe traditional lifestyle of the Sherpa people. In this village you can visit Tangboche Monastery and Sherpa Culture Museum.


If you make your trekking plan during the season of Mani Rimdu Festival, you will have an opportunity to observe the Buddhist Mask dance performed every year in the Khumbu region by the monks of Tengboche Monastery.

It will be a wonderful experience while flying to Lukla . On the flight you will enjoy  the mesmerizing views of Himalayan mountain range. After landing at Lukla airstrip, your trek begins following the traditional trail of the Dudhkoshi river into the Sagarmatha National Park. The meandering trail passes through the heartland of the Sherpa settlements, Buddhist monasteries enjoying the alpine flowers and splendid views of  Mount Everest and other popular Himalayan peaks  getting closer everyday.
