Mountains and Monasteries: A Solu Explorer

The Solu area of Nepal boasts beautiful views of Everest, Shorung Yu La, Kanteiga, other snow-capped mountains, some of Nepal's most interesting monasteries, friendly Sherpas and trekking routes with few tourists.

Beginning in Phaplu, with views of Shorung Yu La, the holiest mountain to the Solu Sherpas, you will climb to Chiwong monastery, with its beautiful frescoes, and then to Junbesi, site of the first of Rural Education and Development's libraries. After visiting the town, we walk to Tuptencholing, the most important monastery in the area and one of the most famous in all Nepal. From Tuptencholing our trek takes us up over the ridge, with spectacular views of the Himalayan range, down to the banks of the Beni Khola, and then up to Dudh Kund, a 16,000 foot glacial lake at the base of Shorung Yu La, and one of the most important pilgrimage lakes for both Hindus and Buddhists. After visiting the lake, we will descend to the charming monastery of Tragshindu, before returning to Phaplu and Kathmandu.
