Lots to see, well worth a visit for anyone on the trek to EBS/Kala Pattar. Look at all the legends who have climbed Everest, some, many many times over.

A gem of a place stuck high above Namche. Relive some of the adventures and experience life as a Sherpa. Tough conditions, little romance, but heroic tales, nevertheless. Take in the wonderful memorial to Tenzing Norgay with Everest looming behind. Magic.

Lots to see at the Sherpa museum, loads of photos, newspaper articles, Everest documentation and stories about the brave Sherpas. Well worth a visit even though it is at the top of a very steep climb! Our boys loved it here
