Main Attraction of Sherpa Culture

Sherpa culture's main attraction is its unique customs, traditions, and way of life, which are strongly based on Tibetan Buddhism. They are famous for their mountaineering and trekking abilities, as well as their hospitality and friendliness to guests. Traditional music and dancing, colorful festivals, and delicious food are all part of Sherpa culture. Furthermore, the Sherpa people's link to the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, draws many visitors to their culture and way of life.

The Himalayan Sherpa celebrate a variety of festivals throughout the year, many of which are inspired by Tibetan Buddhism. The following are some of the most important festivals in Sherpa culture:

Mani Rimdu: Mani Rimdu is a Tibetan Buddhist festival celebrated for nine days in the Sherpa populations of Nepal and in the Himalayan areas. The event usually includes rituals, dances, and lectures that are meant to purify and increase the spiritual force of both individual participants and the community as a whole. The celebration is usually held in the autumn, around October or November.

Dumji: Dumji is a Sherpa celebration observed in the Himalayas, usually in June or July. It marks the birth of Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, the second Buddha and the founder of Tibetan Buddhism. The festival is often referred to as 'Drupchen' or 'Drupku'. Religious ceremonies, dances, and the gifting of traditional foods and drinks to the gods and goddesses are all part of the event. The festival also provides an occasion for the Sherpa community to gather and establish social bonds.

Loshar: Loshar, also known as Tibetan New Year, is celebrated by the Sherpa, Tamang and Gurung population of Nepal’s Khumbu region. Lhosar brings together the Sherpa, Tamang, and Gurung people to celebrate the beginning of the New Year with traditional music, dance, and religious ceremonies.

Palden Lhamo: Palden Lhamo is a yearly celebration celebrated at the Tengboche Monastery in Nepal's Khumbu area. The event honors the goddess Palden Lhamo, who is regarded as the protector of the Khumbu region and a particularly powerful divine in Tibetan Buddhism. The celebration is performed by the region's Sherpa, Tamang, and Gurung communities.

The local community meets during the event to make offerings to the goddess and seek her blessings for the upcoming year. Traditional music and dance performances, as well as religious ceremonies performed by local lamas, or monks at the event.


Which is the best season for Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trekking?

The best season for Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trek is in the spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November), when the weather is clear and stable, providing excellent trekking conditions and breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The temperature is also calm during this period, making it simpler for trekkers to acclimate to the high altitude.

Furthermore, the routes are dry, making it easier to trek, while the lower altitudes' greenery and flowers give a wonderful contrast to the snowy peaks.  However, it depends on your preferences, as the winter season can be too cold, and the summer monsoon season can create excessive rainfall and slippery routes.

Climate and Weather of Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trek

The weather around Everest Base Camp depends on the season. However, we cannot predict the climate change up in the mountain. The weather is usually clear during the daytime and cooler at night time during the peak climbing season. The peak season for Everest Base Camp is normally April and May and October and November. During the monsoon season (June to September), heavy rain and snowfall will occur. Even in the summer, the temperature at Everet Base Camp can drop below freezing at night. The average temperature at Everest Base Camp in January is around -17°C and -2°C in July. Because of its high altitude, the air is thin and dry, making it difficult for certain individuals to breathe.

Where and how to start Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trekking ?

Everest Base Camp Trek is a renowned trekking route in Nepal that usually begins and ends in Kathmandu. We fly to Lukla from Kathmandu.  The journey begins in Lukla and proceeds through small villages and lush woods, passing through Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep before reaching the Everest Base Camp.

It is always recommended to schedule the trek with a registered trekking company with well-trained guides, porters, and other equipment support. Trekking Planner Nepal helps you with permits, transportation, as well as accommodation, and lodging. Most of the trekking trials are well-defined; however certain sections of the trek may be steep or difficult to manage.

It's also important to know that the trek to Everest Base Camp is not an easy one and also requires a good level of physical fitness and acclimatization to the altitude. Trekking Planner Nepal recommends you to spend some time in Kathmandu for acclimatization before starting the trek and also to some stops up in the mountains, to minimize the risks of altitude sickness.

Travel Insurance: Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trekking.

Nepal Trekking Planner always suggests our clients for Travel and Medical Insurance against unpredicted situations that may occur during your walk to the Himalayan. The trek normally takes place in a far-off and mountainous region, so medical care and evacuation may be expensive to arrange during an emergency. Trekking Planner Nepal advises you to the Insurance through World Nomads Travel Insurance for your upcoming holiday in Nepal to Himalayan destinations.

When getting travel insurance, ensure that your insurance covers all specific activities such as trekking, hiking, and mountaineering. Additionally, determine whether the coverage covers emergency medical bills and evacuation, including helicopter rescue. Nepal Trekking Planner advises customers to have Travel and Medical Insurance before starting the trek. The travel insurance must include appropriate protection for the duration of your tour/trek to cover personal injury, death, medical expenditures, and repatriation expenses in any mode of transportation on emergency evacuation such as helicopter rescue, air ambulance, etc.

In case, sometimes your chosen trip destination may differ from the planned itineraries. In exceptional cases, we may need to reroute or cancel trips due to political conflict, miserable weather, broken road or trail conditions, and porter position and condition. The company has the right to cancel trips in case of unavoidable circumstances that are outside our control, such as if there are uncertain landslides in the middle of the trial. Please be patient in such a situation; we will do our best to change the itinerary travels as much as feasible for your comfort.


Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trekking Altitude.

The altitude problem is a common problem that trekkers face on Mount Everest due to high altitude and less oxygen availability. The trekker may have symptoms like,

  •    Headache.
  •    Dizziness.
  •    Nausea.
  •    Vomiting.
  •    Tiredness.
  •    Loss of appetite.

 The trekker may face physiological challenges too. Furthermore, cold temperatures, strong winds, and other extreme alpine conditions can make climbing more difficult. Climbers frequently take a cautious and steady approach to climbing to overcome these challenges, employing a process known as "acclimatization" to allow their bodies to adjust to the high altitude.

Accommodation in Everest Sherpa Cultural-Scenic Trekking.

People trekking to Everest Base Camp will encounter a number of tea shops along the road that provide basic amenities such as shared sleeping rooms, food, and occasionally even hot showers. (You need to pay for hot showers).

As a developing country, when we travel to the Himalayan region, the greenery and population density drop, which is one of the key reasons why we sometimes have to sacrifice for the best services. However, because this is a tourist route, most amenities remain accessible, while some may require a sacrifice.

It's important to remember that the mountain's accommodations are quite basic and frequently overcrowded, and the cost might be exorbitant due to the difficulty of delivering supplies to such a remote position.
