In the winter it is cold and the population is low.In the trekking season, it is full and lively, with amenities for trekkers. Cafes, international restaurants, bakeries, shops, a museum, clubs, ATMs, as well as local Sherpa style food restaurants are to be found.

Your Himalayan Vacation and Treks guide will escort us to the famous TengbocheGompa monastery. On 19 January 1989 a fire devastated the Gompa, but most of the monastery’s extensive collection of books, paintings and religious relics were saved. The building, destroyed, has been rebuiltthrough the efforts of the Sherpa people and with the help of international organizations.  Each day the monks perform ceremonies at 6am and 3pm. Tourists may visit during these ceremonies, but the Rimpoche (head of the Gompa) has askedvisitors to sit quietly on the right-hand side and to not take flash photos or otherwise disturb the ceremonies.
