About Trip

The Khumbu region is located in the alpine part of the Everest. It is populated by the Sherpa people. Nepal Kameleon Holidays assist you to conduct a Sherpa culture research tour in Khumbu and lead you to the beautiful Sherpa villages. We recommend Namche Bazaar, Khumjung valley, Tengbuche and Thame for the research trip to Everest to know Sherpa people, their cultural part and the social structures. Sherpa people are world renowned Himalayan leaders, who born in the Himalayas, raise there and lead the trekkers and climbers to the heart of the Himalayas. Sherpa people are highly religious. They are influenced by the Tibetan Buddhism. If you like, we also connect Sherpa culture research tour in Khumbu with the epic trek to the Everest base camp. It is both for the research tour and an opportunity to enjoy the adventure journey to EBC. Please, let us know about the tour and to customize the itinerary.  For more details, feel free to contact us.
