Sherpa people are the indigenous inhabitants of Khumbu Valley and are followers of Buddhism. Khumbu is comprised of many villages of which Namche is the biggest and is the ancient trading post between Tibet and Nepal. Today, it is called Namche Bazaar, where mountain climbers, trekkers, traders and researchers alike stop to savor the fusion food of the Sherpa, Nepali and Western culinary delights. We make two night stops in Namche to acclimatize and recharge. Then along the route, we will visit other Sherpa villages to explore their way of life and culture. Most people in Khumbu are blessed by the opening up of Nepal for tourism since the 1950s, and their way of life and education have dramatically improved as a result of their work in the field of tourism. Apart from working in the field of tourism, many people here practice traditional lifestyles such as raising Yaks and farming.
