The Mani Rimdu Festival is a colourful, noisy occasion that takes place in the most spectacular of settings. Performed by the monks of Chiwong and Tengboche monasteries, it depicts the victory of Buddhism over the ancient 'Bon' religion. The festival lasts for three days and is well attended by the Sherpa people who often trek for many days to witness this important event.
Tengboche Mani Rimdu starts on the full moon of October, and the Chiwong Mani Rimdu on the full moon of November. We have two special departures to both festivals, the exact dates of which are yet to be announced. Please contact our office if you are interested in these departures and we will confirm the dates as soon as they are known. On both Mani Rimdu departures we stay in our pre-booked comfortable mountain lodges.
