Url: https://www.megaadventuresintl.com/trip/sherpa-village-trek/

Overview

Chyangba is a unique Sherpa village located in the lap of Pikey Peak below the Khumbu region. The word Chyangba comes from Chyangba which means bushes and and Chaymitang in Sherpa Language, which means land covered by the bushes. Before the human settlement the current Chyangba village was fully covered by bushes. According to the local people there ancestor (around 3 families) were migrated there in 16th century. Now Chyangba is under the village development committee of Tapting, where different ethnic group are living together harmoniously. Beside Sherpa, Chyangba is a common home for different ethnic group such as; Magar, Brahamin, Chhetri, Rai, Newar, Tamang, Vishwakarma, Sunwar etc.

Farming is the main occupation of local people. Mainly they use to grow Potato, apple, maize, wheat, barley, peach, radish, buckwheat, and millet. Besides farming tourism is the main attraction of local people, from where male use to make money to support their family. Females are mostly busy in day to day household activities and in farming. When Nepal was opened for westerns, mountains are the main attraction for them. Since then local Sherpa are working as porter, cook, trekking guide and expedition guide for different trekking and expedition group.
The unique Sherpa culture, magnificent landscape, breathtaking view of high mountains such as; Mt Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and endless mountain range from Pikey Peak are the main attraction of Chyangba Village trek. Unlike natural beauty the indicator of health and education are very poor in Chyangba Village. Lack of awareness and proper guiding very few students continue their study after their school.

Testimonials

They were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!

My experience with Mega Adventures could not have been any better! When I arrived in Kathmandu, I was warmly received by a member of the staff who, after dropping my bags off at the hotel, kindly led me around the city. After spending a few days exploring that wonderful city and meeting my climbing guide, we flew out to Lukla to begin our trek. Our goal was to summit Island Peak with a stop at Everest base camp along the way for acclimatization. Throughout the trek, my guide and porter were incredibly supportive and engaging and taught me so much about the region and culture. Although we ultimately were unable to summit Island peak due to weather conditions (one of the greatest challenges of climbing) we did reach approximately 6,000m, the highest I had ever been. I was immensely satisfied with the climb. Though I have taken a mountaineering course previously and had the opportunity to climb many of the highest peaks in Washington State, I was new to the Himalayan Mountains. My guide taught me several new techniques to enhance safety while climbing and provided a safe, encouraging environment. I would highly recommend this guiding company, as they were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!
