We stayed in Tengboche during our EBC trek, it was a nice place to look around after a days trekking. There are monks there who will also chat to you about the monestry.

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.

The monastery is the largest in the region and has been rebuilt several times due to fires and earthquakes, most recently in the late 1990s. It is a massive complex with a large temple, accommodations for the monks and even grazing ground for yaks. The...More

It's beautifully decorated both inside and out, however you can't take photographs inside and must remove your shoes. We were in and out in about 10 minutes, but still worth popping over to look at.

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.

It is an outstanding example of Tibetan architecture. It is the oldest monastery in Khumbu. Sherpa people visit it very often and the lamas are very welcoming. A must to visit on the way to Everest base camp.

It is an outstanding example of Tibetan architecture. This monastery is the oldest in Khumbu area. Very welcoming lamas. I have visited during 4 days during Mani Rimdu festival. It is a great festival to see the lamas dancing on the clouds.
