Everest Tengboche Trek - 8 days

Go on 8 days trip for

Tengboche Monastery is the largest Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region. It was recently rebuilt at great expense after being destroyed by a fire. The tip of Mount Everest is visible to the left, and Ama Dablam stands to the right.

Tengboche Monastery sits atop a hill at the confluence of the Dudh Koshi and Imja Khola, with a clear view of Everest. About 350 years ago, Lama Sangwa Dorje (a high priest) of Khumbu declared Tengboche to be a religious site where there would one day be an important monastery. It is one of the most important religious centres for Sherpa culture, with 35 monks residing within its walls.

Tengboche (Om Mane Padme Hum) is a Shangri La, one of the last stops on the way to the high peaks. But this quiet spot has been the site of a long history of disasters. An earthquake destroyed the monastery in 1933, only to be rebuilt and ravaged by fire in 1989. The heat was so intense that none of the old scriptures, carvings, and murals could be salvaged. Patience and mindfulness are central tenets in Tibetan Buddhism, and these are needed here in large doses as the rebuilding process has stretched on from months to years.

The monk in turn blessed the bundle of prayer flags that Jamling hopes to unfurl on the summit. Wearing colourful costumes, the monks performed a masked dance ceremony, called Mani Rimdu, intended to bring into the team's presence some of the great protective deities, including a wrathful manifestation of the legendary saint Guru Rinpoche, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism. The dancer's motions depict the historic vanquishment of demons and the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet. Tengboche become symbols for tourism attracting more than 15,000 tourists per year.
