As you travel alongside thrill seekers and photographers from all over the globe, you’ll spy Cho Oyu, Lhotse, and Makalu – three of Earth’s 10 tallest peaks! You’ll rest easy at night in cozy, traditional teahouses knowing that our experienced, knowledgeable guides and porters are there to ensure the safest, most enjoyable, most fascinating experience possible. You’ll support local economies, discover hidden strengths in yourself, and make both friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

 TONGBA

While the Sherpas of Khumbu are an enthusiastic consumer of rakshi (fortified rice wine) and chhang (rice beer), the Limbu of eastern Nepal prefer the warm millet beer known as TONGBA. Traditionally served in a lathe turn, wooden pot, this intoxicating beverage is prepared using hot water, poured over a mash of fermented millet seeds. Along, bamboo straw filters out the seeds, allowing you to slurp up the warming, alcoholic liquid. If you order tongba in a lodge, the owner will keep refilling your pot with hot water until you say enough. The alcohol content of tongba falls somewhere between beer and wine, but be wary of drinking too much at altitude.

                                         

 

 

    Tengboche Monastery

A powerful mythology has a grown up around the Monastery at Tengboche (thyangboche) as a result of the writings of explorers and mountaineers, but the gompa is not as ancient as you might expect. The first gompa at Tengboche was constructed in 1916 by lama gulu, a monk from Khumjung, but the building was destroyed in the earthquake of 1934, which also killed its founder. A second gompa on the site lasted until 1989 when an electrifier burned the stone – and –timber structure to the ground.

Fortunately, most of the gompa’s valuable books painting and religious relics were saved. Using donations from Sherpa, foreign aid organizations, Buddhist group and mountaineering and trekking companies, Tengboche was painstakingly reconstructed, opening its doors in 1993.inside is a 4m- high statue of Sakyamuni, backed by an ornate wooden frieze of mythical beasts that was rescued from the fire. In the doorway to the Monastery, note the stone with a food – shaped imprint, allegedly by left lama Sanga Dorje as he flew around a Himalaya in the 17th century (see the boxed text, opposites)

The Monastery is the setting for the famous main rimbu festivals in the ninth Tibetan month (normally October or November), with whirling masked chaam dances and plenty of eating drinking and making merry. During the festival, all the lodges in Tengboche become and gridlocked and there is an entry fee for the Monastery and a surcharge for the video camera.

Visitors are welcome to attend the daily puja (prayer) ceremonies at 6 pm and 3 pm but sit to the right so as not to interrupt the monks as they chants the scriptures. Wearing shoes or shorts, smoking and taking photos are all prohibited inside the Monastery.
