This Monastery is a must visit on your EBC trek. Situated at the top of a challenging climb, with views to Everest, this place has a wonderful location. Inside, the place is calm & spiritual as you would expect.

Passed through Tengboche, on way back from EBC. The Gompa (Buddist Monastery) is the most famous and the largest in the region. A beautiful structure. From here, we can get a 360 degrees view of all mountains, including the mount Everest.
