RONGBUK: This place is located in the southern Tibet. Two large tributary glaciers, the East Rongbuk Glacier and the West Rongbuk Glacier, flow into the main Rongbuk Glacier. It flows north and forms the Rongbuk Valley north of Mount Everest. The famous Rongbuk Monastery is located at the northern end of the Rongbuk valley. Rongbuk Monastery is the highest monastery in the world above sea level, with an altitude of about 4900 meters. This is a perfect place to view the highest Everest and stay overnight before going to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) with 8 KM away.
