Like Tengboche, Deboche is a monastic settlement established by Lama Gulu for
the benefit of nuns. It is also a quiet alternative to Tengboche and while the
views aren't as great, the forest is much better. It also has the added
advantage of being less windy and 120m lower than Tengboche.
There is a small gompa here which while nowhere as regal as the one at
Tengboche, has better frescos.
