Khumjung Village is a beautiful village situated at the elevation of 3,790 meters above the sea level near Khumbila peak and located in Khumbu sub-region inside Sagarmatha National Park in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu rural municipality of Solukhumbu district of eastern Nepal. This beautiful village lying in the Himalayan region of Nepal is just about an hour walk from Namche which requires climb and some normal walk to reach the village. As the whole trail is without any lodges or hotels, carrying water for your own is the best thing to do in this trail. Although, the village is seen as a cave instead it is a hidden village which encompasses enough scenic beauty, adventure, challenging weather, gorgeous views, and diverse culture and traditions.
However, there lies a sacred cave high above the Khumjung village. It is believed that the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, Padmasambhava, stayed at this cave for several days after completing practices at Maratika. On the outer right wall, there is a mysterious appearance of Sanskrit character written something in Sanskrit. After some climb, there is a very clear handprint of an accomplished yogi printed in stone near some retreat houses. The climb is complicated and confusing type, so it is necessary to keep the cave in focus for not heading towards the wrong direction. The cave can be identified from below by the prayer flags hung outside. The Khumjung Monastery (Gompa) displays the purest form of the scalp that comes from a Yeti. When you reach the monastery (gompa), you can ask the monks for directions for getting to Guru Rinpoche’s cave.
Nevertheless, Khumjung village features various lodges and hotels for you accommodation offering various dishes, services with gorgeous views from there.
