“If a Beyul is a sacred space, then this is it – The Happy House in the Himalayas. Thank you to the Lama family for sharing this window on Sherpa heritage. I love it here and always will.”

To the amazing Sherpa / Lama family who have worked tirelessly and yet effortlessly to bring this whole experience to life. There are few luxuries in life greater than the experience of letting go, knowing you are in the best of hands and being magically surprised at every turn. This is a very special place, a very special house and your are the most special of people. Thank you for sharing your vision.

On Your Next Trip to
Nepal, Rent the House Sir
Edmund Hillary Loved

It is my favorite writing desk in the world: a simple Italian bureau in a candlelit corner of the Happy House, in the Solukhumbu region of northeastern Nepal.

Good Company:
The ‘Happy House’ of the Himalayas

In the village of Phaplu in northeast Nepal, near Mount Everest, stands the favorite retreat of the late Sir Edmund Hillary.

Dear Ang & family, Thanks for welcoming us to your home and the Happy House. Some of us came lifelong friends and some of us met for the first time. What you shared with us inside and our has created fond memories that will last forever. This is a remarkable place and you and your team have provided us a glimpse in to the Sherpa life and hospitality. Thank you for your care and generosity.

“It’s been a great privilege to follow the trails of sir Edmund Hillary and visit the different villages along the way. I enjoyed it all very much. But I have to say the main highlight of my trip was to go off trail and walk the less trodden routes to find the villages of Junbesi and Phaplu.” Rt hon Helen Clark, former Prime minister of New Zealand. It was a great pleasure to host Mrs Clark at the Happy House, a dear friend of Sir Ed Hillary and now the patron of Sir Ed’s Himalayan Trust operations. As we near the centenary of Sir Ed’s birth and look back at his achievements and the legacy he left behind, the most notable has been his unfaltering efforts to provide education and healthcare for the Sherpa people of the Himalayas. The many schools and hospitals he built were the first in the mountainous region of Solu Khumbu and are still functioning as model for all rural Nepal. Ang Tshering Lama, trip leader of all Beyul Experiences trips, was born in Phaplu hospital that Sir Ed built with his own hands. And the name the Happy House was bestowed upon by Sir Ed himself. #themanthelegend #phaplu #himalayas #beyulexperiences

Repost from @condenasttraveller The Nepali name for Everest is Sagarmartha, which means mother of all mountains. When Everest gets its first touch of sunlight, the whole Himalayan range lights up. You have the valleys, the hills, and then slowly everything changes from a dark green shade into a warm, rich, golden light. @beyulex 🎥 @oliverpilcherphotography Our aim is to spread awareness of the Sherpa people and to work towards their cultural conservation.

Where the physical and spiritual worlds overlap, Beyul are hidden valleys that Padmasambhava (aka Guru Rinpoche) blessed as refuges only to be discovered when the world became too corrupt for spiritual practice. It is believed that Pilgrims who travel to these wild and distant places often recount extraordinary experiences similar to those encountered by Buddhist spiritual practitioners on the path to Liberation. Life in Beyul is sacred and protected and it is this that we offer our guests. #beyulexperiences #himalayas #nepal #travelwithpurpose #culturalconservation

In the West, to create illusions is to make magic but here in the East, Destroying illusions is regarded as the highest form of Magic. During the Mani Rimdu festival, these dances performed by the monks of Chiwong monastery convey Buddhist teachings on many levels - from the simplest to the most profound. These dances reveal the secrets to destroying illusions and realigning the universe, tasks which seem incomprehensible even to the most sophisticated minds of today but the trick is to accept it with the most simple mind and then we realize the answer has been within us all this time. #manirimdu #chiwongmonastery #beyulexperiences #culturalconservation #travelwithpurpose #himalayas #nepal

First Ger (yurt) to be set up in the Eastern Himalayas of Everest region. Gers have been a distinctive feature of life in Central Asia for at least 3,000 years. The first written description of a ger used as a dwelling was recorded by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus. He described ger-like tents as the dwelling place of the Scythians, a horse riding-nomadic nation who lived in the Central Asian region from around 600 BC to 300 AD. Because of the way it’s built and its circular crown roof, it is considered by many engineers today to be the most aerodynamic tent of its kind, resisting high winds from all direction and keeping its dwellers inside warm and comfortable. #beyulexperiences #happyhouse #beyul #phaplu #adventure #travel #living #spiritualawakening #himalayas #nepal #offthegrid #camping #glamp #glamping #travel #igtravel #responsibletravel #seekmoments #postcardsfromtheworld #getoutstayout #optoutside #choosemountains #travelquotes #viewfromabove #roomwithaview #digitalnomads #workandtravel #nomadiclife

Tibetan Buddhism has four main schools / lineages with their own following and sometimes the different sects can be identified by the color of the monks hats at formal occasions. The Red Hat sect includes the three oldest of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, namely: Nyingma, Sakya and Kagyu. However, a minority consider only the eldest school, the Nyingma, to be the Red Hat sect. The fourth school is the Gelug, headed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is known as the Yellow Hat sect. #beyulexperiences #happyhouse #beyul #phaplu #adventure #travel #living #spiritualawakening #himalayas #nepal #offthegrid #buddhism #spiritual #religion #philosophy #tibet #responsibletravel #seekmoments #optoutside #choosemountains #viewfromabove #digitalnomads #adventureseeker
