It is a natural and geographically fascinating trekking tour that allows visitors to see the mountains of Majestic Himalayan grandeur, as well as Green Landscapes and Hyolmo culture. On a clear day, we can see the Langtang Range, the Annapurnas, Manaslu, and even Everest from low heights. The Sherpas of Helambhu speak a different language, have a different culture, and dress differently than those of Khumbu and Rolwaling. The location is a very famous site for Thanka arts.

The journey begins at an elevation of 3771 meters and takes you through gorgeous rhododendron, pine, and oak forests. The Nepalese month of Chaitra, which roughly corresponds to March or April, is an excellent time to go on this journey.

Hylmos from all across the region, country, and even the world come to Aama Yangri on Chaitra's full moon day. They trek to the summit of this mountain before dawn to view the sunrise as part of the ceremony. On the one side, the lamas pay devotion to the mother protector by praying for hours, while the people enjoy butter tea, barley beer, and local wine while basking in the sun.

Furthermore, regardless of whether it rains or not, the trail appears to become incredibly slick. Aside from that, the path is enjoyable to walk. Make sure you have enough of water with you. Also, bring dry fruits and shoes with good traction!

Best time to visit Ama Yangri Trek

The best months to visit are September through mid-December and March through the first week of June. Because of the open skies and the end of the monsoon season, fall is the ideal season.

During the season, the region is lush with foliage and offers distant views. Spring, on the other hand, brings new leaves, blossoming rhododendron woods, and snowy summits. As a result, the optimal time to hike  is between the two seasons.

Ama Yangri peak History

Ama Yang-Ri (Ama Yangri Protector of the Entire Hyolmo Valley), also known as ‘Yang Rill Mountain,' is affectionately referred to by the local villagers as Ama Yangri, which means mother Yangri. Yangri is a Dakini who, through the force of her compassion, has transformed into a goddess protector of the entire region.

Locals who are born in her shadow rely on her blessings as they grow up. Looking at her mountain shape bestows blessings on the spectator, such as long life and safety from accidents. When the villagers part, she is the last face they see, intending to imprint her image in their memories so they can recall it in the future. They prostrate before her upon their return, thanking her for a safe journey and comfort in her forests' embrace.

Every year, on the full moon of Chaitra (March or April), a large festival is organized in her honor to pay homage to her presence and to thank her for her protection and wishes for the coming year's success. Local lamas lead a morning Puja, and local people lead the community in dance from the afternoon into the evening.

Sherpa (Hyolmo) Tradition

Raksi (corn, apple wine), Chang (barley beer), and traditional butter tea are freely flowing, as is Sherpa (Hyolmo) tradition. At moonset, Ama Yangri is alone once more, with just the echoes of laughter and singing interspersed with the spiraling smoke of incense as her offerings. Stacks of old leaves looking for something to eat. He's a relic from last year's yak herder migrations in late August, after the summer monsoons.

He stands alone on the mountain, watching every one that passes by with a puzzled expression. Passing through a huge marshy area (provided that environmental geography has changed little in the past 400 years), the pilgrims' path is the historic outer circumambulation route, which only a few individuals now use. In an ever-upward spiral, it rounds the mountain's base, eventually meeting up with the modern path just below the summit.

The trail then turns left again, completing another full circumambulation before reaching the top. The top is crowned by a great white Chorten, whose circumambulation completes the whole Cora route's outer, inner, and sacred levels, which are important to all genuinely major pilgrimage sites.

On the other side, there is nothing but mountains and sky. Locals regard it as an enticing spot for meditation. A low prickly bush on the other side of the cabin has katas (Throne) intertwined between its branches. It is the sole plant on the otherwise desolate mountainside, other from grass. A mound of rocks in the shape of a frog lies at the base of the bush.
