Beautifully set at the foot of Taboche, this quiet village is a gem. The
valley in which Phortse is located has the highest number of Tahr, highest
density of Snow Leopard signs and the highest density of Himalayan Monal in
Khumbu. As such, short excursions around the village is highly recommended.
And don't worry too much about Snow Leopard, chances are very low of
encountering one and if you do, your stars are aligned so perfectly today that
nothing could harm you.
