Tengboche Trek 

Tengboche Trek is a short and easy trek in Everest region. We take a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla’s and then trek really begins. The trail follows to Tengboche Monastery at an elevation 3860 m via Namche Bazaar. On reaching at the monastery one can observe a prayer ceremony either in the evening or morning and seek blessings from the Buddhist Monk. This trek to Tengboche gives a superb view of the world's highest snow capped peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Amadablam and many other peaks. In addition, it gives a great introduction to Sherpa lifestyle, local culture and Buddhism. This trek is recommended for those who do not have enough time for a longer trek but want to be in the foothills of Mt. Everest and see the mountains from close distance.
