Enjoy the floral diversity of the park and if you are lucky enough you will see the endangered highland species of mammals and birds.

The villages like Mende, Tengboche and Namche offer you the firsthand experience of unique Sherpa culture. The highland monasteries, long line of sacred mani-walls and the colorful prayer flags fluttering the high skies demonstrate pious Buddhist culture of the region. Eventually, the views of Himalayan giants so close and magnificent will continuously mesmerize you.
