You can witness the young monks engaging in debates about Tibetan Buddhism between 3 and 5 pm (Monday to Friday) in scattered groups of two to four throughout the courtyard.

Day 03: Drive from Shigatse / Shegar (4,150m) to Rongbuk Monastery(4,920 - 4960m) then hike to E.B.C (5,140 - 5160m)

Cross the Gawu la pass (5,260m) and enjoy the spectacular view of Himalaya mountain ranges Mt.Makalu [8463m], Mt.Lotse [8516m], Mt.Everest [8844m], Mt.Cho Oyu [8201m] and Mt.Shishapama [8020m] from Left to right.

During our trip to the Everest Base Camp on the Tibet side, we will stop for rest at a lodging facility near Rongbuk Monastery, which is approximately 8km away. The Zhufeng road will take us through Gawa La Pass, where we will witness a breathtaking view of Mt. Everest from the Gawu La Pass viewpoint, which is located at an elevation of 5260 meters. This viewpoint offers a 360-degree view of the Himalayas, making it the best viewpoint of the entire trip. We will have a panoramic view of the central Himalayas, including Mount Makalu, Mount Lhotse, Mount Cho Oyu, and Mount Shishapangma, all of which sit at over 8,000 meters and share their boundary with Tibet and Nepal. 

After taking in the breathtaking views and capturing some amazing photographs, head down the exhilarating road towards Rongbuk Monastery – the highest in the world. Established in the early 20th century, this Nyingmapa Sect monastery is in the Rongbuk Valley, also known as the "sanctuary of the birds." The area had a strict ban on killing any animal, which made the animals of the valley extraordinarily tame. Wild blue sheep would even come down to the monastery. However, driving all the way to Everest Base Camp is not possible. All vehicles must stop at the tent camp a few kilometers past Rongpuk Monastery, and passengers must trek to finish the last 4 km. Don't miss the Guru Rinpoche meditation cave, which is about 1 km uphill from the tent camp on the left. The peak has been a dream attraction for mountaineers from all over the world. Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet offers a breathtaking view of the Rongbuk Glacier, the largest of the hundreds of glaciers formed around Mt. Everest. The glacier is formed by three glaciers that flow south and congregate at the 'Rongbuk River. One interesting aspect of Rongbuk Monastery is that it is home to both monks and nuns. The monastery celebrates the Saka Dawa Festival, a three-day Buddhist dancing ceremony held every year from the 15th of April in the Tibetan Calendar to commemorate the birth of Sakyamuni.
