Education, health and cultural are integrated part of the life of the Sherpa people. Therefore, helping to conserve the important cultural heritage is equally necessary for the quality of life in the region. Himalayan Trust has supported to rebuild dozens of important Buddhist monasteries, Chortens (pagodas) and prayerwheels. These cultural sites are not only important assets for spiritual faith but also they are equally important as sites for tourist attraction for economic development of the community and the countryBesides, whenever the monsoon rain floods local bridges and trails disturbing the local movement of the people, the community request the support of the Trust for their rebuilding and the Trust has done dozens of such relief supports. In several villages, in the Everest region, the Trust has helped with several water supply projects at the request of the local community.
