Sherpas establish gompas temples where they practised their religious traditions. Tengboche was the first celibate monastery in Solu-Khumbu. Sherpa people also live in China , Bhutan , and the Indian states of Sikkim and the northern portion of West Bengal , specifically the district of Darjeeling. The Sherpa language belongs to the south branch of the Tibeto-Burman languages , and it is a mixed Eastern Tibet Khamba and central Tibetan dialects.
