KHUMBU'I YULHA

Tibetan Tutelary God

Also known as Khumbu-I-Yul, Khumbu-Yulha, Khumbu'i-Yulha

Patron God of the Sherpas of Khumba

A local deity, his name means literally ‘God of the Khumbu’ and he lives on Mount Khumbila. This is where the souls of the Sherpas quietly dwell when all their sherping is over.

Among the locals he is known as a mighty warrior. Do not even think of climbing his mountain — the consequences could be catastrophic. We are talking mountainquakes, avalanches and a deluge of killer Yeti.
