Sherpa Village Trek


This picturesque journey brings you up close and personal with Sherpa life as you travel throughout the Khumbu region visiting several Sherpa villages. You will be treated to breathtaking views of all the mountains in the area along along the way. You will travel through lush woodlands and get to see various monasteries. This walk is perfect for those who are less likely to struggle with the altitude because there are no significant peaks or passes.

This trek is based on common teahouse. This is an ideal trek for trekkers and adventurous families with short period of time. Apart from the spectacular mountain views, this trek offers immersion into the fascinating culture of the famous Sherpa and Tibetan people of the area.

Besides Sherpa Village Trek, the other fascinating Everest Region treks includes Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Gokyo Valley Trek and many more.

" I recently returned to visit Nepal for a month in March/April 23 after a gap of about 40 years and used Mountain Travel Nepal again through Ashok Awal and his team to make ALL the arrangements.

This included the Sherpa Village Trek in the Solukhumbu region in Sagamartha National Park, the Langtang Valley Trek in Langtang National Park and accommodation in Thamel, Shivapuri Heights and Bhaktapur while in the Kathmandu Valley.

The whole month was a wonderful experience. Advice and communication was professional and I always felt safe and looked after. This was commented on by others I met along the way and I think a tribute to the experience of Mountain Travel Nepal.

A big thank you to Sherpa Ngawang Namgel and Porter Pemba Nuru and the staff of the Mountain Lodges of Nepal in the Solukhumbu region and also to Sherpa Sonam Ngima and Porter Phure Lema in the Lantang Valley and to the staff in the Lantang Tea Houses for making me feel so welcome and for sharing their unique way of life. It was a privilege to have the Sherpas show me wild life and birds along the trails and for sharing their lives and experiences. Thank you."
