NEPAL - Mani Rimdu Festival (17-19Nov)

The festival "Mani Rimdu" seems to be celebrated for the first time in 1930. The Rongbukh Monastery in Tibet is the place from where this festival originated. This is the prayer ceremony where the monks put on masks representing divine personages and perform ritual dances. The spectators of devotion come from many villages to gain Sonam (merit) from the head Lama's blessing and making corn and grain contributions to the Monk's community. This period coincides with the cessation of work in the village at the end of harvesting. Mani-Rimdu is the only big social event that draws together large crowds from all villagers in the Khumbu region.  It is best to combine this with the Mount Everest Base Camp trek.
