Mani Rimdu Festival Trek

Mani Rimdu is one of the most fascinating Buddhist festival observed every year in Everest Region, usually in November (date fixed by lunar calendar) in Tengboche monastery. This is the festival of Sherpa people celebrated during the autumn at Tengboche Monastery in the Everest region. Lamas and Sherpa gather at the monastery for five days – ‘for the good of the world’. One can witness different kinds of acts, plays, masked dances, prayers and feasts. Demons are quelled and the pious are rewarded. The festival is very colorful and ideal to combine with a trekking expedition in the Everest region.

 

Mani Rimdu is a re-creation of legendary events; the establishment of Buddhism in Tibet by the great saint, Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava). Through the dances, symbolic demons are conquered, dispelled, or converted to Dharma Protectors, as positive forces clash with those of chaos. The dances convey Buddhist teachings on many levels - from the simplest to the most profound - for those who do not have the opportunity to study and meditate extensively.

 

After the festival the trip continues to the foot of Mt. Everest (8848m) Everest Base camp. There is no place in the world more spectacular than the Everest region. It is where four of the world’s six tallest peaks Mt. Everest (8848), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) Mt. Makalu (8481m), and Cho Oyu (8201m) resides.  Beside interesting festival, this trek is the most spectacular trek in the land of the Himalayas which offers scenic mountain views, and opportunities to get a real experience into the life of world famous climbers (the Sherpa people). The trek offers the opportunities to see the Khumbu mountain ranges, around Sagarmatha National Park a world heritage site, the life style of the Sherpa people, Himalayan flora and fauna and will also get an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that our mountain legends Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa set off on in 1953. You will witness the highest altitude hotel in the world, The Everest Hotel, highest altitude airport Lukla airport also known as Tenzing Hillary Airport and high altitude places where people still live.
