Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Set in a small plateau of Tengboche is this 100 year old monaster. It's one of the the most beautiful places in the world. Surrounded by mountains, it has a strangely mystical and out of place appearance that accentuates the beautiful Tibetan Architecture.

For me it was a half way stop between Namche and Pangbouche but it is a beautiful place and well worth the stop. It is though extremely cold but the views are spectacular and make sure you turn the prayer wheels or get a blessing as you are going to need it as from there that’s where the altitude really starts to kick in. At least that’s what I found

this monastery is very well preserved, the paintings are all so beautiful, the statues gives u that sense of peace when you look into the eyes.
the monks there are all so nice and they allowed the visitors stay a little inside in meditation.
light a candle, make your prayers, be thankful for all the graces you had!
the last possible time to visit is 4h30 pm, after this they close for visitors and in the morning, the ceremony is around 7am.

Climbing up to EBC, we made haste to get to Tengboche so that we would not miss the daily Buddhist prayers (done twice a day, morning and afternoon). We made it to the hotel, cooled off, then went for a very spiritual afternoon in the temple. The monks had tourists all around the temple but never missed a beat in their chanting. It was moving and quite awe-inspiring.

Inside the temple no photography is allowed. The temple is decorated with many interesting pieces of artwork, instruments, and signage. The drums are (believe it or not) actually made from stretched human skin, and some of the instruments are carved from human bones. Call to prayer is done with a conch.

From the gateway into the temple one can see Mt. Everest in all of her glory.

I timed my EBC trek to see the Mani Rimdu festival, which is held on the full moon at the end of October. The procession on the blessing day and the full day Mask dances were great. However, I would say that when the monks do the humorous segment after lunch leave and come back at the end of the day for hte final set of mask dances. I was lucky and able to attend a religious service in the monestary in the morning that was fantastic. It is something I will never forget.

Tyangboche Monastery is one of the Heritage sites in the Khumbu region. This is the center for Sherpa people and their culture. Also, this is the center for Buddhist learning and practice.

Every trekker who want to go Mt. Everest base camp camp, they want to stop in this Buddhist Spiritual place and get blessed. They have evening and morning puja start after beautiful sound of bell and conch. We recommends visit in the morning with sunrise view and mediation with monks sitting by praying hall. You can see best panoramic view of Khumu mountains including glimpse of Mt. Everest. So Visit and enjoy with this place like us when you are Everest region.

The cloister is worthwhile visiting but make sure you go there during opening times. The view is just fantastic from there.
