Tengboche Monastery trek

This six-day short Tengboche trek is on a very scenic route. It offers trekkers great views of Mt. Everest, the world’s highest peak, and the opportunity to explore the Sherpa region’s unique culture and landscapes.

We start our journey by flying into Lukla. We then trek up to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital of the world, and onto the Tengboche Monastery. Here, trekkers can take an optional day hike to Khumjung’s remote Sherpa settlement, where Sir Edmund Hillary built the first school in this area.

This short Tengboche trek provides a terrific introduction to the Sherpa region and culture and features breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges. It is one of the most favored destinations for first-time trekkers in Nepal. It is also best suited for some trekkers who may not have the time for longer treks or do not want to trek into the much higher elevations.

Food and nutrition on the trek

We are pioneers in gastronome trekking in the Himalayas. We provide a varied, interesting menu on treks throughout the Himalayas. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals can be catered for upon request, and other special diets can be accommodated with advance notice.

Trekking is not only fun, but it is beneficial for you. It helps in detoxifying the body while also nourishing the soul. Although to provide a better experience, we also tailor our meals to include superfoods as part of the ingredients to keep you fit and healthy while also assisting in acclimatization to high altitude. The combination of hiking in the pristine mountain air and healthy food makes trekking with us a complete adventure. Read More on Food and nutrition on our treks.
