Sherpa Village Lodge Trek

Starting From $1475.00 per person

Sherpa Village Lodge Trek takes you to a few of the most wonderful Sherpa Village. During the Sherpa Village Lodge trek, you don’t just get to explore the geographical features of the village, but also the way of life of the Sherpas. Sherpas are a tribe of people indigenous to Nepal. They have been living in the hills across Nepal, and especially in the Khumbu region for decades. There is a very interesting scientific fact about Sherpas. Because of the fact that they’ve been living in such a high altitude for such a long time, their bodies have naturally evolved to survive the low oxygen density in air. They can function normally with lesser percentage of oxygen in their blood, which most people from lower altitude can’t. It is for this reason that they are considered as ideal expedition guides. Climbing mountains is an everyday thing for them.

 

Traditionally, the ways Sherpa lived was quite different in comparison to the way people lived in the other parts of the country. Religiously, Sherpas are either Buddhists, or they follow Bon Po, which is a religion that originated in Tibet. The lifestyle is the result of the environment that they live in. Sherpa House, Sherpa Clothing, Sherpa Food, and so on are all focused towards keeping the Sherpa people warm and healthy in the extreme climates of the mountains. One of the examples of Sherpa Village is Kumjung Sherpa Village. Khumjung Sherpa Village lies at an altitude of 3790 m. When you visit this village, you get to experience the lifestyle of Sherpa People, i.e. Sherpa House, Sherpa Food, Sherpa Clothing, and so on. During your Sherpa Village Lodge trek, you’re bound to be fascinated by, and appreciate, the ways of the Sherpas.

 

Sherpa Village Lodge trek is a 10 days long journey, and during this time, you will walk for a duration of 6 days. The numerous Sherpa Village that you will cover during the journey are Jorsalle, Phakding, Monjo, and so on. These Sherpa Village won’t just offer you an insight into the life of Sherpas, but also let you enjoy the wonderful views of peaks such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and so on. The reason why it’s called Sherpa Village lodge trek is because at the end of each day, you’ll spend your night in the comfortable lodges.

Namche Bazaar, though it is not a typical village, it can be categorized under Sherpa Village, as the majority of population living in Namche Bazaar are Sherpas. Namche Bazaar is the busiest town in the entire Khumbu region. Anything that is missing from your pack of mountaineering or trekking equipment, you can find it here. If you’re in need of cash, you can get it from the numerous ATM machines and banks available here. Internet is widely available. If you’re craving for some baked desserts or western delicacies, you can find all of them here. Namche Bazaar offers you wonderful views of peaks in the Everest region. This is a town where you can stay for days, and you still won’t be bored. You can go for short hikes from here to the numerous viewpoints situated around the town, and to the nearby Sherpa Village. You will love the journey.

Yet another Sherpa Village that you will cover in the Sherpa Village Lodge trek is Tengboche. It is a normal village from other angles, however, there is something special about Tengboche, and that is Tengboche monastery. Also known as Dawa Chholing Gompa, Tengboche is a significant religious heritage and a pilgrimage site for the Buddhists living in the region. Tengboche Monastery was first built in the year 1916. Throughout the time, it’s been destroyed twice, mainly because of natural calamities and accidents, and it’s been rebuilt twice, in the years 1934 and 1989. It was established by Lama Gulu, who is one of the prominent figures in Tibetan Buddhism. The heritage is said to have links with Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet. The monastery is a part of both the celebrations and mournings of the people living here.

Lukla is another Sherpa village of the region, and without a doubt, one of the most prominent ones. It is the home to the legendary Lukla airport, which is also known as Tenzing Hillary Airport. Lukla Airport is infamous around the world for being the world’s most dangerous airport. It’s gotten so much fame because of two reasons. The first one is the length of the runway. The length of the runway in Lukla Airport is only 527 m, which is around 1000 m shorter than a regular runway. In the same way, the second feature that makes it dangerous is what follows the runway, and unluckily, a deep gorge follows the runway. So, in terms of taking off or landing if the flight timing is interrupted by just a couple of seconds, plane crash is guaranteed. These factors work together to offer the tourists a thrilling landing and take off experience.

Sagarmatha National Park is probably the richest protected area in Nepal, when it comes to the population of rare and endangered species of animals, birds, plants and other creatures. The park is home to 118 species of birds, and numerous species of mammals like Himalayan Black Bear, Red Panda, Snow Leopard, and so on. The rich vegetation of the park includes plants such as Birch, Fir, Juniper, and so on. Sagarmatha National Park is known not just for its wildlife and vegetation, but numerous other natural spectacles as well, for instance the peaks in the region. During your trek through the Sagarmatha National Park, you will come across glaciers, rivers, waterfalls, icefalls, lakes, mini mountains, forests, and so many other attractions. These elements collectively form settings that are unbelievably beautiful. Numerous times during the trek, you will come across such setting. Needless to say, you will absolutely love them.

Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the best treks in the entire Everest region, if not the country. It takes you to wonderful villages, viewpoints and attractions, both natural and cultural. Sherpa Villages are few of the highlights of Everest Base Camp trek. The major attraction of the journey, without a doubt, is Everest Base Camp. It takes you close to Mount Everest and makes you stand face to face to the peak. You will get to enjoy the outstanding views of peaks of numerous mountains from here. The Khumbu Icefall, which acts as the first obstacle for the mountaineers willing to climb Everest, will be there right in front of you. Colorful tents fill the area. These belong to the mountaineers and expedition companies. You will also visit Kala Patthar, which is believed to offer the best possible views of the peaks in the region, even better than that by the Everest Base Camp. Kala Patthar is a mini peak. The trekkers hike to reach on top of it.

The two best way to go on the Everest Base Camp Tour is Everest Expedition and Everest Base Camp trek. Despite the fact that Everest Expedition offers you much more than just the base camp, it still counts. Now, if you’re not quite into any of these journeys, and if you are the kind of person who looks for comfort in the holidays, you could go for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Ride. On this journey, that lasts for a duration of 4 to 5 hours, you get to explore the entire Everest region. During the Everest Base Camp tour, you will get to enjoy the aerial views of peaks and as well as the villages. The helicopter would stop at multiple viewpoints, including the Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, allowing you to soak in all the goodness. At the end of the journey, you’re offered a lavish meal with drink. There is nothing that can be more luxurious.

Clients Experience

#In December 2011, my husband and I did a 3 trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal followed by 3 days at Chitwan National Park with Happy Holidays (Kuman Gurung).  We’re in our mid-sixties and began to question our decision when various friends and family members said that it’d be way too cold and difficult at that time of the year.  Actually November and December are excellent months to trek in Nepal as it is normally dry and sunny.  Kuman is an excellent choice as he did all the planning, gaining of licenses, arranging for lodging and planning of the length of our trekking days.  We liked that he not only planned, but accompanied our group of 6, along with two other wonderful assistants (porter and guide).  One needs to understand that Nepal is a third world country, and electricity and warm water become an issue all over the country.  Our days were very warm---how I wished I’d brought a short sleeved shirt---and the nights are cold.  We hadn’t anticipated that we’d spend much of our time climbing up or down----but Nepal translates to the Himalayas so that’s what you do. (much is rock steps which can be difficult for some)  The vistas make stopping often to rest a treasure,----it is beautiful---so beautiful.  You are remote and everything is packed into the area---your meals come mainly from the gardens and are delicious!  Kuman is willing to tailor the trip’s destination and length to your ability and time frame.  He provides one with a most memorable experience, and you come away with a true appreciation of the country and people.  He also arranged our stays in Katmandu and 3 days in the Chitwan National Park.  You begin and end your trek in Pokhara and we recommend the Temple Tree Resort and the Moon Dance restaurant as a great way to end your trek.  Thank you Kuman for making our adventure in Nepal so perfect!

#Namaste to Kuman and Lokenra, I write as the expedition leader of a team of 6 (3 Canadians and 3 Americans) who recently traveled for 1 month in Nepal and Bhutan using the guiding and coordinating services of Happy Holidays Treks and Expeditions, in particular Kuman and Lokendra.  This was the second expedition which these gentlemen looked after us, the first being in 2010, another month long expedition which featured trekking through the Everest region, a jungle adventure in Chitwan and an extended whitewater rafting trip on the reverred Sun Kosiriver. Our October- November2013 trip featured trekking the Annapurna region, trekking for a week in Bhutan and whitewater rafting 2 rivers - the Kali Gandaki and the BhotoKosi rivers. Needless to say, the care and expert attention provided by Kuman and Lokendra was exceptional.  Every aspect of our trip was handled flawlessly and with good humor and insight of the Nepalese culture and traditions.  Over the last 15 years, I have lead many trekking and rafting expeditions around the world and without any qualification I give the highest marks to both Kuman and Lokendra. Not only did we get full value for our money, but it was done with genuine TLC by both these wonderful gentlemen.  Even when things went off track ( which in the 3rd world - in truly remote environments -  can happen in technicolor - in this case a National Strike of workers) alternate arrangements were undertaken with ease and care - maintaining our schedule and achieving our expedition objectives. I obviously think highly of Kuman and Lokendra and strongly recommend Happy Holidays as 'the go to' trekking/expedition/rafting company in Nepal. In this regard, if you require further amplification of my comments I would be pleased to endorse this recommendation via email or telephone. Clearly, if Nepal offers a Tourism Award for best guides/guiding companies,  Happy Holidays would be a first prize winner!

#Dear Kuman, Happy New Year and Namaste.  It has been more than a month since the Team Tim returned home from the experience of a lifetime—organized by you and your company.  It was such an amazing trip with so many different aspects to it.   We started our adventure in Nepal where you and I first met, then quickly off to Bhutan, and eventually back to Nepal and home.  The trip you organized for us contained so many different elements--- hiking, rafting and learning about the cultural aspects of the two countries.  It was an organizational nightmare, but everything ran so smoothly under your direction.  Tim, Viv and I commented about how smooth the transition was between each activity and country.  It really was one of our best adventures. I was so impressed with the way in which the guides took such very good care of us. They were all so happy to teach us about Buddhism, their country and their politics.  I thought it very special how you joined us on the trekking part of the trip. You also went that extra mile when we rafted in Nepal.  You followed our route and met us at each stop along the way to feed us, take pictures, carry our “stuff”, or whatever else our team of 6 needed.  We all became family ----Lakendra, you, and the 3 Canadian and 3 American travellers. I know that you and Tim had thousands of emails between you as you planned this extensive trip.  Tim you knew from his last trip.  He was thrilled that you had opened your own office and that he was able to have you and Lakenda organize and guide the trip respectively. I would be privileged to serve as a reference for you if a potential client requests it. You receive a five start rating from me. Thanks again,
