Rongbuk Monastery
This is the highest monastery in the world. You see that mountain in the background? That’s Mt. Everest. It’s the real deal up here and hopefully you’ve spent a few days in Lhasa first to adjust to the altitude. There’s two locations now and the original one isn’t in active use but there’s his rad hole you can crawl down to a cabe with shrines where someone important spent a lot of time mediating. The new one is a slightly lower on the road and has a guest house to stay st which I think is nicer than the tents. But not by much. A monastery with views of Everest. That’s all that really needs to be said.
