MONG - Birthplace of The Flying Lama

  • 3950 meters

Mong makes us wonder why all places associated with holy men are so idyllic. And this village said to be the birthplace of the patron saint of Khumbu, Lama Sanga Dorje. The sunny slopes of this village is flanked to the west by a pretty waterfall and to the east by an amazing mountain panorama. You will have to make way to the View Point Guest House for an unobstructed view though.

What starts as a short tea stop could well turn into hours in the contemplative quiet of this charming village.
