Tengboche Trekking is the very pleasurable alpine trekking at maximum height of 3860m. The highlights of this trekking are Sherpa village, Monastery, Mountain View and Eco hiking.
The Tengboche trek starts from Phakding (2840m.) and passes through Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is beautiful Sherpa village but now it looks like an alpine resort than a Sherpa village, because trekkers are increasing. Tengboche is popular place because of big monastery and view point. We find lot of Yak and Jopkyo (crossed cow and yak) on the way. Yak and Jopkyo are means of transportation for this region. We find many types of trees and wild life in this region. We can see Chir pine, Blue pine, Junipar, different types of rhododendron and many kinds of herbs and flowers.
