It takes us through villages untouched by tourism to cross the Everest trail and visits Thubten Choling Gompa (monastery) with its 150 monks, exiled by Chinese repression, worshipping in their beautifully painted monastery building.
The trek will also include visits to a number of other Buddhist monasteries, a visit to a school and health post funded by CAN in a remote Nepali community and an opportunity for those with the energy to trek to a height of 3600m on the ridge of Konglemu Danda to experience spectacular views of surrounding mountains including Everest.
