The spectacular flight takes you to Lukla and the start of the Everest panorama trek to Namche Bazaar, the colorful center of Sherpa life (The place of Yeti and home of the Mount Everest), then you will continue trek to holy Tangboche monastery below the distinctive peak of nearby Amadablam and Everest.

On this classic first-timers Everest hike or trek through the legendary Khumbu Everest region, your senses come fully alive, and all the views are magical. But not only for its proximity to Mount Everest, but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, diverse ethno-cultures, colorful festivals and monasteries. As we attempt to understand the rich Sherpa culture, we soon enter an endless maze of woven stories and tales, including those of the mysterious yeti!

ABOUT “MANIRIMDU FESTIVAL” OF EVEREST REGION:

This festival is celebrated at the monasteries of Tengboche, Thami and Chiwang right after the full moon of autumn. The monks with elaborate masks and costumes on, perform o series of ritualistic dances of the triumph of Buddhism over Bon the ancient animistic religion of Tibet. On the first  day of the festival, Lamas of the monastery pray in the courtyard. The second day, you can see the Lamas dancing with brocade gowns and wonderful painted paper-mouth masks. Hundreds of Sherpas from all over Khumbu attend the performance, as it is an important social occasion as well as an entertaining spectacle. Along with the serious and intricate dances the Lamas also dramatize two absurd comic sequences that make the entire performance a grand and amusing event. On the final evening of Mani Rimdu the villagers joint in an all-night Sherpa dance. We have following trips of kala pathar Everest base camp which allows you to grace festival at Tengboche.

Testimonials;

Having known Prem & Maina Rai for over ten years, I cannot imagine better trekking guides. Whatever your desires for your trek, from the idlest, slow leisurely paced wanderings to the toughest challenges (if you wish to to the highest lake in the World, they will get you there!), they can meet them. They take wonderful care of you….with much laughter and enjoyment.
My last experience of travel with Prem & Maina was the trek to Everest Base Camp, November – December 2009. My companions were very fit but I had thought I would have to stay at Namche Bazaar, having had a hip replacement and arthritic knees, at the age of 66. But they were happy and confident that we would sing and dance on the Kalapathar peak 5545m and, thanks to their great spirits and competence, we did. And picnicked and took photos for four hours in the sun, overlooking Everest and watching distant avalanches! This was a tribute to their total care for every aspect of our well-being. We all stayed healthy with just one incidence of Altitude Mountain Sickness (which can just happen anytime); Prem has life saving skills to deal with this, and a mere half an hour of his garlic head Massage brought me round.
Both Prem and Mina, who have been practicing their skills for years at their clinic in Pokhara, are highly skilled in ayurvedic massage and, unbelievably, managed to include their massage oils in all the baggage they were carrying; we returned healthier in every respect, and I am sure it was a tribute to their skilled massage that I arrived home much fitter and with no need for painkillers! This is not to mention their skills in cooking (wherever lodge owners allow them in their kitchens), story telling, knowledge of flora and fauna, and Prem’s ability to rush over nearby peaks and bring back excellent photos of the wild life and dramatic footage.
Fortunate indeed are any trekkers who have Prem and Maina or either one of them alone, for their guide to the beauty and challenges of the Nepalese mountains.
