Tengboche is a village in Khumjung in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal. In the village is an important Buddhist monastery, the largest gompa in the Khumbu region. The structure was built in 1923. After it was destroyed by fire in 1989, it was rebuilt with the help of volunteers and the provision of foreign aid. Thyangboche has a panoramic view of the Himalayan mountains, including the well known peaks of Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku. English adventurer Charlie Boorman and Peter Hillary, son of the Edmund Hillary visited the village in 2008. The footage was shown in Boorman's series By Any Means.

Lukla is a town in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal where most people visiting the Himalayas near Mount Everest start their journey. Lukla means place with many goats and sheep, one is not likely to see many roaming around these days.This is a pioneering trek in a remote corner of far west Nepal, one of country's last true wildernesses.  The idyllic Limi Valley is located in beautiful upper Humla which borders Tibet, and here traditional Tibetan culture has been far better preserved than across the border. You will see ancient monasteries, which are still very much in use today, and the friendly Limipas still follow an age-old way of life. Crossing two high passes the trek, graded Moderate/Vigorous, follows a circuit around Chyoro Ri and is scenically and culturally diverse. There is an abundance of wildlife in the region and you stand a good chance of seeing blue sheep, mountain eagle and if you are very lucky, possibly even the elusive snow leopard.
