THINGS TO DO
Yaks graze around the traditional Sherpa villages that is located just behind the lodge. People are living the life in the same way they have been doing for centuries and you really feel that you are off the beaten track.
From Mende, you can go on an excursion to Thame at 3.800m. Walking on a small path that contours above the much larger villages, you connect to the Tibetan trade route to the village of Thame. At Thame you climb up to the over 600 year old monastery at 3.940. One of the oldest monasteries in the Sherpa region.
