The Everest region, also called the Khumbu region, is by essence the trekking destination in Nepal. It is listed by UNESCO as a national park, as a site of world heritage for its incomparable unique Sherpa culture and traditions, for its natural diversity with its beautiful natural landscapes including the highest mountain of the planet, Mt Everest (8848m), known as Sagarmatha in Nepali language and Chomolongmo in Sherpa language. Besides, the travelers will have panoramic views of other mountains exceeding 8000m, as the Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Cho-Yu (8201m), Mt Makalu (8485m), as well as other remarkable summits like Ama Dablam (6812m), Thamserku (6623m), Khumbila (5761m), Kongde Himal (6187m), and Nupste (7855m). The region is inhabited by the people of the Sherpa ethnic group and Sherpas are considered as the bravest mountaineers.
Each year, at the Tyangboche monastery in Khumbu, the monks perform Buddhist dances during the Mani Rimdu festival. The Tyangboche monastery, erected at 3870m, is considered the Buddhist monastery lying at the highest elevation in the world. The Mani Rimdu festival is organized for three days in November. It offers to travelers the opportunity to assist to magic scenes of entertainment as well as to learn about fundamental practices of Buddhism enacted by the Sherpa people. The dances performed during the Mani Rimdu festival emanate from the Rongbuk monastery in Tibet and depict the triumph of Himalayan Buddhism over the Bon religion that prevailed earlier in Tibet. The festival is the occasion to create sand Mandala, to demonstrate the empowerment of Sherpas and to present dances performed by the local monks of the Tyanbotse monastery. As Mani Rimdu festival is one of the most important sociocultural events, all the Sherpa people of the region are eager to attend and to actively participate.
