Rongphu Monastery Guesthouse

Guesthouse in Everest Region

The monastery-run guesthouse at Rongphu has private rooms with proper beds, though the stone walls tend to be a lot colder than the stove-warmed tents at Base Camp. There's certainly more privacy here, though bathrooms are still shared pit-toilet outhouses. Best value are the beds in a four-bed room.

Come the evenings everyone huddles around the yak-dung stove in the cosy restaurant (dishes ¥25 to ¥40 for small portions).
