Reserve This Trip
This is one of the most beautiful treks in the lower Everest region. During this trek, we will visit our trip leader, Pem Dorjee Sherpa’s, village. Here you can visit a local school and get to know the young students. Chyangba Village lies at an altitude of 8,200ft in the Everest Region, Solukhumbu District. Approximately 400km from the capital city, the village does not lie on the tourist trail so development has been very slow. Yet the natural beauty and the rich cultural traditions make this village unique.
There are about 150 houses inhabited by people of many ethnic groups such as Sherpas, Rai, Magar, Newar, Tamang, Chhetris, Brahmins, Viswakarma, and Sunuwar. The villagers are mostly farmers, growing potatoes, apples, maize, wheat, barley, peaches, radishes, buckwheat, and millet. Every Friday, the villagers gather and bring their crops to sell or exchange for rice, tea, salt, oil, butter, spices, soap, etc.
The main school named Wongchu Biswa Darshan Junior High School was established in 1990. Currently, children from three surrounding villages, Sisa Khola, Chyangba and Chepte Khola, come to receive education here. The months of April/May or September/October are a wonderful time to visit this area. At this time of year, a great Sherpa festival takes place, Dumje, where different families take turns each year in bearing the cost of the celebrations. This is a good opportunity to see the monks dancing sacred dances (cham) in the monastery courtyards and to enjoy the famous Sherpa hospitality. During this trek we can see Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mera Peak, Numbur Himal, Gauri Shankar, Dudh Kunda Himal, and many other Himalayan peaks.
