“Trek to the natural wonderland where the biggest festivals of Sherpa Buddhists are celebrated with highest degree of enthusiasm.”

One of the most beautiful areas and one still largely off the tourist route is that of Peekye mountain (4070m), a very special mountain in that it is considered the protector of Golla region. Golla is a small Sherpa village of about 40 houses scattered over the slope of Peekye 3060m, and dominated by a range of snow-capped mountains: Gaurishankar, Karylung, Numbur and Katanga.

The months of March and April are a wonderful time to visit the area. The forests then show off their rhododendrons, magnolias, wild orchids and edelweiss. At this time of year too, a great Sherpa festival takes place: the Dumje, for which, different families take turns each year in bearing the cost of the celebrations. This is a good opportunity to see the monks dancing sacred dances (cham) in the monastery courtyards and to enjoy the famous Sherpa hospitality.

For those who like deep blue skies, snow and the mountain climate, autumn and winter are the best seasons to come. At the end of October or beginning of November a great festival Mani Rimdu takes place in Chiwong monastery in which the monks perform the sacred dance over a period of several days.
