An early morning sunrise at Waku is worth every hardship you faced while climbing up to the region. As the rays of the sun hit the mountain peaks, the gigantic Himalayas appear to be more appealing. The region is famous for its hospitable Sherpa people who treat their guests with warmth. We explore every trail of Waku today and admire the incredible ambiance of the place.
