Rongbuk Monastery

Rongbuk Monastery, Everest Base Camp, Tibet

The highest monastery in the world, at 4980 meters, and adjacent to the Northern base camp for Everest, Rongbuk Monastery offers simple dorms and shared, squat toilets (outside and one very unclean indoor toilet for cold mornings) for those who have made the trip across the rough terrain from Shegar. You'll find any other travelers staying in the area enjoying tea or a meal in the friendly restaurant.

      The monastery is a pleasant place to visit but of course the major attraction is the stunning scenery all around, and the view of the world's highest mountain's north face.
