Tengboche Monastery

The best time to visit the Tengboche Monastery hall is around 3:30 Pm, which is the exact time when the excited monks play horn music along with melodious mantra chanting songs. In addition to the fact that there is a residing Rinpoche who blesses trekkers and mountaineers traveling to the area, if you are fortunate enough to be there on the Full Moon day in October, the Tengboche Monastery hosts the Mani Rimdu festival. Tengboche is also one of the best places for photographers to take pictures of Mt Everest, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, and Thamserku Himal.

Toilets in Everest trek

During your Lukla to Everest base camp trek, don’t expect comfortable toilets (western toilets). You’ll find some hotels that have western toilets but the majority of teahouses have pan toilets and no toilet paper, so you will need to bring your own or buy some at the tea house.


As you will be trekking from Lukla to Everest Base Camp, you cannot expect warm temperatures during your trek, as this trek is 5,643 meters high and the temperatures at Everest base camp and Kala Patthar peak are always minus temperatures. I recommend you prepare well for your Everest base camp trek by reading the list of equipment you will need, a down jacket, a -25 degree sleeping bag, a good sleeping bag that makes you have a good trek, and a poor sleeping bag makes you have a poor trip.



We have seen many trekkers give up halfway to Everest Base Camp due to a lack of hiking stamina during our previous experience, we recommend that you at least jog for at least ten to fifteen days, at least one hour per day before you plan to do Everest Base Camp Trek.
