Our 14 days Mani Rimdu Special Trek
is scheduled to commence with a flight to Lukla that can take about 30 minutes to complete. This allows trekkers to enjoy the scenic hills, valleys and rivers but mostly don’t forget to have a glance at the striking Himalayas as they can be seen even before reaching the Tenzing Hillary Airport of Lukla town. After arriving at Lukla, you along with your other trek members shall make a move towards Phakding village which is merely 3 hours away from Lukla. The next day, we are to head onward to Namche Bazaar which is one of the highlighted place of our trek as it is the most populated town of Khumbu region where modern facilities such as hot shower, comfy rooms, Free Wi-Fi and good food can be enjoyed similar to Kathmandu city. Trekking in high altitude can be a risky venture for trekkers as their bodies need to be properly adjusted to the surrounding environments where due to less air pressure the depreciation of Oxygen occurs. This can lead to many health hazards so we are to stay at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes to help our bodies fine-tune according to the surrounding. After Namche, we now make a beeline towards Tengboche with an uphill hike that can last up to full 5 hours to complete and more if you’re not properly acclimatized. Now, we celebrate the highly anticipated Mani Rimdu Festival for the upcoming three days during which you get to be a part of “Wong” which in general is the opening ceremony done on the full moon day. Further ahead, you are to enjoy “Chham” which essentially is a sacred dance ceremony and then witness a fire prayer the following day called “Jinsak” primarily done to ward off evil spirits. From this point ahead, we shall descend down back to Namche and Lukla one by one before ending our trek in the historical capital city of Kathmandu by taking a domestic flight.
Because it’s the most widely celebrated festival of Khumbu region, people from all around the valley gather in Tengboche to be a part of it which solely adds greater excitement and greater trip value as they can fully indulge in the celebration for the entire 3 days of their stay there. Also, this festival falls during the mid Oct to mid Nov, so trekkers need to schedule their visit in Nepal according to these dates otherwise they might miss the festival entirely.
