Mani Rimdu Festival Trekking - Everest Base Camp & Kalapattar Trek - 20 Days

The Sherpas belong to the Nying-Mapa sect of Tibetan Buddhist which is self an outgrowth of the Mahayana tradition Guru Rinpoche (Padma-Sambhawa an Indian yogi) is regarded as the founder of this old sect and spiritual leader. Legendarily born of a lotus in the middle of a lake, it is to Guru Rinpoche that the Prayers and Mani wall inscriptions are address as "OM MANI PADME HUM", Hail to the jewel of the lotus. Religious book recount that Guru Rinpoche was a powerful Magician and sorcerer.

Sherpas celebrate many ceremonies in the region, including marriage ceremonies, Funerals, manning of a child, driving out evil spirits, obtaining Sonam (Merit) and other offerings to be made in the name of the local gods.

Mani-Rimdu Festival, a very important festival to the Sherpas, falls on the full moon day of Tibetan ninety month (October/November). The three-day celebrations of Mani Rimdu follow the ten-day non-stop prayer sessions addressed to the patron deities - seeking “blessing for the good of all mankind". The protagonists of all are Guru Rinpoche, the founder of Vajrayan Buddhism in Tibet. Masked Lamas of Khumbu region perform various religious rituals amidst dancing and singing.

Mani Rimdu Festival TrekkingThe first celebration of Mani-Rimdu at Monastery of Tengboche (Everest region) seems to have taken place some time in 1930. It originates from Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet Mani-Rimdu is a prayer ceremony where the Monks put on masks representing divine personages and perform ritual dances. The spectators of devotion come from many villages to gain Sonam (merit) from the head Lama's blessing and making corn and grain contributions to the Monk's community. Mani-Rimdu normally takes place every year in the month of November (full moon, it can be changed depending upon Tibetan Calendar) and at-least for three days. This period coincides with the cessation of work in the village at the end of harvesting. Mani-Rimdu is the only big social event that draws together large crowds from all villagers in the Khumbu region.

Mountain Sherpa is the best travel company i’ve travelled with...

“ We Two Young people From Holland Did The Annapurna Panorama/Gorepani Trekking Organized By Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition and Sumba Sherpa Was our Guide.
We had a really Great Time During the Trekking. The Guide could tell you a lot and was very Helpful, Honest when Path was very difficult. They also looked out for the best teahouses and if you want to Change the Programme a bit it was no Problem. In The Future I will do a Trekking with Them again and I can recommend Tandi, Sumba Sherpa and Their Agency for any Travel, Tours, Treks & Expedition in Nepal with Great and reasonable prices. We had Great Time in Nepal. ”
