Tengboche Trek-07 Days 

Overview
Tengboche trekking has been one of the most loved trekking trails for tourists who make their trip to Everest region, especially for those who love to explore the Buddhism and its hidden treasures of its followers. When one visits to Tengboche monastery, one gets not only the clear picture of the Buddhist religion but vanishes into a peace.

Generally, people visit to this isolated and solitary to get released from the stressed mind, as the monks in the monastery practice a kind of meditation everyday of their life. The hospitality of the people living around the monastery enchants in such a way that they come again and again and build warmhearted memories of Nepal throughout their life.
