The popularity of the Everest Tengboche region has not ceased growing since the first conquest of the Top of the world in May 1953. Mt Everest, known as Sagarmatha to most of the Nepalese, and Chomolungma to the local Sherpas, has become Nepal’s first stop trekking destination. The region is popular for good reason; some of the most spectacular and beautiful mountain scenery in the world combines with the famous friendliness and hospitality of the Sherpa people.
Wild Yak Expeditions proposes its own route for Everest Tengboche trek, which offers the very best of the Khumbu valley for those who want to have a first glimpse of the core of the Himalaya. This easy trek takes you to the altitude of 4100 meters, after an interesting cultural sightseeing of the UNESCO heritage sites in the Kathmandu valley.
Our trek starts with an unforgettable flight to Tenzing Hillary Lukla airstrip during which you can enjoy the spectacular panorama of the Himalayan giants. After reaching the heart of Khumbu, “Namche Bazar”, our way continues further up through the rhododendron forest to Mong village, which stands on the top of the ridge offering a great view of the majestic Ama Dablam (“the Matterhorn of Nepal”) and Thamserku peak. Our next stop is Phortse village, which is also known for being the village generating the climbing Sherpa for the various expeditions on the highest summits of earth. During the expedition periods (spring and autumn) most of the young generation is on the mountain, working as climbing Sherpa. Our way continues then to the holy place: Tengboche Monastery, where you are surrounded by a stunning panorama of some Himalayan giants (Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many more). We leave Tengboche by a steep but nice descent before crossing the Imja river and ascend to the village of Khangjoma. The last staging post is Khumjung, a “modern” Sherpa village, with its yak herds and Himalayan flora brings you the final impressive touch of a mixture of medieval way of living and modernity. A visit to the Hillary health post and the Khumjung school is worth the time and effort.
During this entire trek the impressive view of the Himalayan range with its central point the Goddess Everest and the feeling of touching the clouds make you forget the efforts in high altitude of the last few days.
