The Sherpa Village Trek leads us through the Solokhumbu, the heart and home of the Sherpa. The name "Sherpa" (East-man) stands for the people who settled east of the Bhote Kosi River. Another highlight of this Trek is the Edmund Hillary School, the Khumjung Monastery where we are able to gaze the head of the legendary Yeti and the monastery in Thame.
Around 300 – 400 years ago the Sherpa migrated from eastern Tibet to Nepal. Until the 1920s the Sherpa didn't climb mountains, they believed the high peaks of the Himalaya are the homes of the gods. The Sherpa eked their livelihood from high-altitude farming, cattle rising, and wool spinning and weaving.
This Trek gives you the opportunity to have a quick insight view into the world of the giants.
