Trip Overview

One of the most beautiful areas, and one still largely off the tourist route, is that of Peekye Mountain (4070m), a very special mountain in that it is considered the protector of the Golla region.

Golla is a small Sherpa village of about 40 houses scattered over the slope of Peekye at an altitude of 3,060m, and dominated by a range of snow-capped mountains: Gaurishankar, Karylung, Numbur and Katanga. The religious life of this village is very vibrant thanks to its four small monasteries, all belonging to the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism.

For those who like deep blue skies, snow and the mountain climate, autumn and winter are the best seasons to come. At the end of October or beginning of November (according to the lunar calendar), a great festival takes place in Chiwong monastery in which the monks perform the sacred dance festival of Mani Rimdu over a period of several days.

And at the end of March or beginning of April (according to the lunar calendar), a festival called Dumjee takes place in the monasteries of Golla and Junbeshi and the monks perform the sacred mask dances, which is also the same form of worship as the Mani Rimdu at Chiwong.

Each season of the year has its own beauty – its own feel – to make worthwhile a trip to this area.
