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.
