Mani Rimdu is an important festival celebrated on the tenth lunar month of Tibetan calendar by people of the Sherpa community. During our Mani Rimdu festival trek, we will be heading towards the ancient Tengboche monastery located in the Khumbhu region. This festival is one of the major attractions for tourists who trek to Everest Base Camp during the month of October/ November. People from the surrounding Sherpa villages gather around the Tengboche Monastery to witness the rituals and culture dances. The dance is performed with unique masks which represent ghosts. During the first four days of the festival, a mandala diagram is made using color sand. The monks also perform Fire rituals to protect earth from all the harms after which the mandala is removed. General public also gets blessed by the resident Rinpoche of Tengboche monastery and every year we see a huge number of Sherpa people gathered in Tengboche Monastery to get the blessing.
Mani Rimdu festival trekking can be a wonderful opportunity to experience a unique blend of culture along with nature. As we trek through the landscapes of Khumbhu region, we get the opportunity to have a look on the tallest Mountain of the world i.e. Mount Everest. Witnessing these monks celebrate one of their biggest festivals can be an ideal opportunity to know more about Buddhism.
