Trip Overview

TENGBOCHE TREK AT A GLIMPSE

The Tengboche trek starts with a 30-minute mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The flight to Lukla offers stunning and breathtaking landscapes of Nepal’s hills and the Himalayan mountains. After two days hike, the journey heads to Namche Bazaar, the heartland of the Sherpa and Everest region. The journey further to Phortse village experiences the lush green alpine forest, architecturally distinct Sherpa monasteries, mani walls with carved Buddhist mantras on stones, and Buddhist stupas with colorful prayer flags. Thus this journey familiarizes with the region’s geography, vegetation, culture, and religion and its people until Tengboche Monastery. The majestic close view of the Mount Ama Dablam, Lhotse Shar, Thamserku and Mount Everest is excellent from the Balcony of Tengboche Monastery.

THE SHERPA LAND

Tengboche trek region is the homeland of the famous Sherpa ethnic group of Nepal. The Sherpa people are famous for high-altitude competence and caliber throughout the world. The region is not only popular for the highest mountains of the world and the Sherpa people but also for its glaciers, deep valleys and the Himalayan wild lives, such as Snow leopard, Blue sheep, Tibetan fox and Red Panda. Besides that the region has long history of being one of the most prominent trekking and expedition regions of the Himalaya. Which predates the first successful ascent of Mt Everest by Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Sherpa. 

Over the period, the trekking trails have drastically expanded; they are now well maintained. This significantly contributes to the trekkers’ successful and memorable trek in the region.

Please note that the above-mentioned itinerary information is purely indicative and can likely modify during the trekking by your Guide, who has the authority to make such changes if it is deemed necessary (due to safety concerns, etc.). Every effort will be made to keep to the scheduled itinerary. However, as this is an adventure travel in remote mountain regions and at high altitude, we are not able to fully guarantee it as it is necessary to take into consideration each situation as it occurs and consequently to adapt the program in its best way. Elements such as weather conditions, health conditions of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, among others, can all contribute to changes in the scheduled itinerary.

The Guide will try to ensure that the Trekking runs according to the foreseen plan to the benefit of all the participants, but we thank you for being prepared to some flexibility and comprehension if so required.

A 1 to 2 hours relaxing lunch break is taken. After the lunch break, we will at least spend 2 to 3 hours more on the trail before reaching the next lodge where you will be welcomed by some warm hot tea/coffee and cookies/biscuits. Our trained Guide will accompany the Group during the whole day. Before dinner, we might enjoy a short walk through the village, photographing or chat with other group members or exceptional staff.
