The beauty and majesty of Kanchenjunga is a trekker’s dream, with colossal snow peaks soaring towards the sky above and rolling green hills spreading as far as the eyes can see and gleaming conglomeration of trees set at alpine locations. Originally pronounced ‘Kang-chen-dzonga’, means the “five treasures of snow” and corresponds to the five distinct peaks of the entire massif. At 8,586m, Mt. Kanchenjunga is only about 300m lower than Everest, but somehow the world's third-highest peak is always missed out.
It’s hardly an unusual remark to say that spirituality beckons a traveller, but it’s no less valid for the repetition. Tengboche monastery, gathered in the shadow of Mt. Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam, among the highest mountains in the world, thrives in a tough environment and exudes spiritual fervour. It’s no wonder that, more than six decades ago, it inspired Tenzin and Hillary on their first ascent. And it’s still inspiring us today. After a riveting landing at the famed Lukla airstrip, a shaky beginning of a marvellous Everest trek, amidst roaring applause from relieved passengers, you come across the most breathtaking sun glistened view in all of the Nepal Himalayas - the Khumbu region. Tengboche can be reached via Namche Bazaar, a quaint town that mostly shelters mountain climbers, trekkers and people of the Sherpa community. From the airstrip at Lukla, it takes about three days of uphill trek. Tengboche lies on a ridge at an altitude of 3,870 meters.
