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.

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.
