  • Phaplu/Chiwong Monastery Mani Rimdu Festival Trek – 14 Days (13th, 14th, 15th November 2017)
  • Sherpas in Nepal celebrate different kind of ceremonies in their region regularly, marriage ceremonies, funerals, manning of the child, driving out evil spirits, obtaining Sonam (Merit) and other offerings to be made in the name of the local gods. On the Full Moon Day of Tibetan ninth month (October or November), a very important festival of Sherpas" Mani Rimdu" falls. This festival continues for three day, following the ten-day non-stop prayer sessions addressed to the patron deities - seeking “blessing for the good of all mankind". The protagonists of all are Guru Rimpoche, the founder of Vajrayan Buddhism in Tibet. Masked Lamas of Khumbu region perform various religious rituals amidst dancing and singing. Earn more about Buddhism and wilderness, as we retreat even deeper, before retuning to engage more deeply in the world renewed. Meditation and yoga, and the deep joy of walking one's mind clear; these are some of the sweetest trails in the entire Himalaya. Exploring the largest traditional hermitage in all the Himalaya, we walk incredible trails to reach SengyePhuk, a Glacial Lake where Trulshig Rinpoche was in retreat over 40 years ago and where he sent monks and nuns for chod-wilderness practice. Long life sacred waters curl in this blessed wilderness, a place to rest more deeply in ourselves.

This is a trail through Jiri-Chaulakharka-Ngaur- to reach the Pikey Daanda (Hill) area.
