The Khumbu area is home to thousands of Sherpas whose primary source of income is tourism. You may learn about and discover the Sherpa people's ancient culture, customs, rituals, and way of life by taking this fabled trip to Everest Base Camp. Sherpas have a tradition of performing traditional songs and dancing to them because they enjoy both singing and dancing.

The Sherpa people celebrate the harvest festival in July at their homes and travel to the nearby monastery to worship and take part in religious activities. The biggest and most significant event in the Khumbu region is the Mani Rimdu Festival. For this monumental occasion, Sherpa participants from far-off communities travel to the Tengboche monastery. You may watch the wonderful ritual when masked dancers are dancing and telling stories about religious subjects while trekking during the festival season (late October to November).

When trekking in Nepal, food is a necessity since it gives you energy for a long day of hiking. The Nepalese dish "Dal Bhat" is an easy-to-digest substitute for heavy meals, which are strictly forbidden for hikers. The national food of Nepal is called Dal Bhat, and it includes rice, curries, lentils, chicken soup, pickles, salads, ghee, and other ingredients. It is abundant in minerals, vitamins, proteins, and carbohydrates, all of which are necessary for trekking. You will get the chance to sample the regional cuisines of the many ethnic groups while on the walk. There are many bakeries in Namche Bazaar that are well-known for their chocolate cakes, coffee, and Tibetan tea. Although the food may be pricey at this altitude, it is still worthwhile to eat there because it is delicious.

Most Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tours choose it as their preferred landing area.

Tengboche village's monastery is located on a hill at the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and Imja rivers.
