The most fascinating thing to do during the Everest summer trek is observing and participating in the Dumji Festival. This is one of the greatest festivals of the Sherpa Community of the Everest Region.

This festival falls either in the second half of June or the first half of July. Dumji Festival Trek lets you enjoy the masked dances performed by the monks at the monastery premises for four days.
