Views of Mount Everest, Thamserku and the Kongdi RI from Namche are amazing. While spending the day here, trekkers can visit the Everest Photo Gallery or the Sherpa Culture Museum. The renowned Everest View Hotel also lies a little distance away from Namche and it is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest located Hotel in the world.
A lovely respite in the hotel with tea and the view of the cerulean Mount Everest massif can be enjoyed while staying at Namche. The Syangboche Airstrip can also be visited. It lies just above Namche on a flat strip of mountain land and offers amazing panoramic view of the town and the distant Himalayas. The village of Tengboche lies at the confluence of the Imja Khola and the Dudh Koshi Rivers in the Imja Valley. It is situated about 11 kilometers away from Namche and is also shares the same popularity as Namche.
While Namche is known as the commercial hub of the Khumbu, Tengboche is known as its spiritual centre. The famous Tengboche Monastery- the largest Buddhist Monastery of the region, lies here. The monastery is visited by many trekkers for prayer and blessings of a successful trekking journey. Tengboche also provides amazing panoramic views of Himalayan peaks like the Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tawache and Mount Everest among many more from its ridges.
The village is surrounded by tall hills that are covered in rhododendron trees. During the spring, the blooming rhododendron flowers make the village look absolutely lively and blissful. Many Impeyan pheasants and Monal birds can be seen roosting on the trees of the forests as well. Trekkers stay overnight at the many guesthouses here and continue on the trek the next day. Dingboche is a small village that lies within the Chhukung Valley at an elevation of 4,410 meters. The trekking trail to the Everest Base Camp goes through here and because of this- Dingboche is visited by many trekkers.
