“Escape the dull city life for a few days and experience the aesthetic Sherpa culture on your trip to Nepal.”
Travel through the picturesque mountain landscapes of eastern Nepal and visit some of the most ancient and beautiful indigenous villages of Sherpa communities by joining our Sherpa Cultural Trekking package today. On this trip, trekkers can witness never before seen a side of Sherpa tribes while capturing awe-inspiring mountain vistas and enjoying locally cooked Nepalese delicacies.
Our captivating 14 days Sherpa Cultural Trek begins with a 30-minute scenic mountain flight which goes over several stunning rivers, hills and towns before reaching the lovely Lukla town. After your landing at the Tenzing Hillary Airport of Lukla, trekkers can enjoy the eye-catching views of Khumbu valley and start heading towards Phakding village which is located at 2,650 meters above sea level and will be the place for overnight stay. The trekking trail allows trekkers to pass through many iconic Buddhist monasteries and mani walls decorated with vivid prayer flags fluttering all around them which can be a breathtaking scene for many foreign trekkers. Stone Chortens along beautiful Himalayan trail routes can be seen along the entire trek. Our next stop is the unofficial Sherpa capital of Khumbu region called Namche Bazaar (3,440m). This place is very popular for having some of the most lavish lodges and tea houses which grant Free Wi-Fi, foreign delicacies and even hot showers to trekkers. According to our itinerary, we are staying in Namche Bazaar for at least one day in order to acclimatize to the high-altitude. Acclimatization is one of the most vital parts of our trekking in total but that also doesn’t mean that we have to stay inside our rooms the entire day doing nothing. Hence, we hike up to Everest View Point (3800m) where we can see the magnificent Mt. Everest, Mt. AmaDablam, Kusum Kanguru, Taboche, Khonde peak along many others if the clouds don’t blur up the sky. Leaving Namche, we travel towards Khumjung via Thame village and visit the famous Khumjung monastery & Edmund Hillary School. Afterward, we follow a trail ahead to Phortse and then to Pangboche before arriving at Tengboche village where you can find the largest monastery of Khumbu region called “Tengboche Monastery”. Here you can learn intensely about Buddhist cultures and traditions, visit the monastery and increase your knowledge about the history of this place. After spending our time here, we are to head back down to Lukla via Namche Bazaar for a flight back to Kathmandu city.
Generally, this trek requires trekkers to have an above average physical fitness level to cope with the high-altitude environment and be able to walk for 4-5 hours per day in a rough Himalayan trail. Similarly, we additionally suggest Feb- May & Sep-Nov at the right time for doing this trek. Join, Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition team to be a part of this grandiose trek through many iconic Sherpa villages and enjoy observing the fascinating Sherpa culture of Khumbu region with your own eyes with us.
