Mani Rimdu trek – special festival for trekking on Mount Everest
Panorama of the Mount Everest trek in the special Mani Rimdu Festival at the Tengboche Monastery, the most important and largest Buddhist festival in the region.
Mani Rimdu is one of the main festivals of Buddhism in the Everest region. The Mani Rimdu Festival, which will last three days, will be held in the famous Tengboche Monastery of 3800 meters. The Buddhist monks showed masked dances representing the victory of Buddhism in the area of early Bon. Before the monks perform masked dances, they will participate in the preparations for the festival, such as Sand Mandala, Empowerment and Fire Puja. Hundreds of local Sherpa people in the area participated in special performances with due respect. The dance represents the conquest and conversion of Guru Rinpoche to the devil and the introduction of Buddhism in Tibet.
For centuries, the Mani Rimdu Festival is the annual full moon festival of the Tengboche Monastery. The monks wear masks to represent the old ghosts. Mandoro’s map was carefully depicted at the beginning of the festival, which was made of colored sand collected from the sacred mountain. Usually, the mandala takes four days to draw, then it is covered and it is at the heart of the ongoing religious festival during the next 10 days. The program includes 16 fun dance effects and episodes.
In addition to the fresh air and green serenity of the Abbey of Tenboche and the charming Mani Rimdu festival, you will also enjoy spectacular views of the world’s highest peak, Mt. Mount Everest, Amadablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Thamaserku, Kantaga, etc. The high azalea forest is home to the Nepali national bird Impeyan Pheasant, and giant vultures dominate the sky.

Lama Gulu built the current Thyangboche in 1916, which has close ties to the Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet.
