visit solukhumbu

The best known and admired of all of Nepal’s ethnic groups, the Sherpa migrated to the high valleys south of Mt Everest from eastern Tibet about 450 years ago. Their Tibetan origins are reflected in their language, customs, and religion. The local Sherpa villagers from Junbesi & Pangkarma introduce trek participants to their way of life, and a traditional Sherpa meal with them is on the trip agenda. The staff and crew will all be local Sherpa people from Solukhumbu. The walks will all be in their ’back yard’, so the many questions about the land and its people can be answered promptly and accurately.
