This trek is mainly of interest to those who
desire and rich cultural experience versus a
Himalayan Mountain adventure. We have focused
our cultural trips on those tribal areas and
ethnic regions that provide diverse cultural
and ecological experiences. An example of our
main cultural trips is a trip to the region
of the Sherpas . This visit provides a lesson
in Tibetan and Sherpa Buddhism. The trip consists
of visits to remote and sacred sites where we
will have audience and hear the teachings of
some of the most venerated Lamas in the area.
We start with a days bus ride to Jiri, east
of Kathmandu. As we ascend higher the gradual
change of terrain parallels a change in culture
as well. We leave behind the predominantly Hindu
farming communities of the southern hills as
we reach the Sherpa Buddhist communities of
the high altitude yak pastures. Along this trek
visit famous monasteries like Thupten Choling.,
Takshindu and Chiwang in the Solu region. The
Tibetan Refugee Center of Chiyalsa provides
an interesting opportunity to observe the life
style of Tibetan refugees.
