There are many iconic sights to behold in the Everest region of the Himalayas in Nepal. And one of the most beautiful and memorable, is the Tengboche Monastery. This incredible structure, which has been rebuilt on 2 different occasions, making it quite the monument of persistence, rests at an altitude of 3,867 metres, and is amazing in many different ways. Not only is the structure itself gorgeous, but the views you can enjoy from it are breathtaking. You will be able to see several of the Himalayas’ most iconic peaks from the monastery, including Lhotse (8,516m), Nupstse (7,861m), Thamserku (6,623m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), and of course, the might Mount Everest (8,848m).

Despite the high altitudes reached during this 11 day trek, the route we will take is actually quite easy. Thus making this not only a wondrous adventure, but an accessible one as well.

Along with the Tengboche monastery, another highlight of this trip includes the legendary, and heart pounding, yet remarkably beautiful Kathmandu – Lukla and Lukla – Kathmandu flights. Even though the flights are only 40 minutes long, the experience of these flights will last much, much longer. You will also get to spend several days enjoying and exploring the city of Kathmandu as well. Also, throughout the journey up to and back down from the Tengboche monastery, you will also get to visit and spend a few days in Namche Bazaar. From here you will get to enjoy more incredible views of the vast Himalayas and the region’s spectacular landscapewhile also having the opportunity to venture off to other smaller local villages.

Visiting the Tengboche monastery is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but on this 11 day trek, we have organised a trip where you will get to see and experience even more than that. If you would like to join us, just send us a request, and we’ll be happy to guide you. 

We can also lead you on one of the newest Nepalese hiking routes, the Tamang heritage trek, on this 17 day adventure.
