Tingri

Tingri is famous in Tibet for offering spectacular views of Mount Chomolangma, the Tibetan name for Everest which means "Mother Goddess of the Universe". Standing at 8848 meters, it lies at the border between China and Nepal.
The peak has been a holy climbing attraction for world's mountaineers. In recent years, more and more mountaineers start from the Everest Base Camp trying to conquer the world's highest peak by the north face while tourists trek to the foot of the peak to enjoy its beauty. The trek to Everest Base Camp starts from Tingri.

 

MAIN ATTRACTION OF TINGRI:

Rongbuk Monastery

On the way between Tingri and Everest Base Camp, one can visit Rongbuk Monastery which is the highest monastery on Earth. Its altitude is 5100 meters. The monastery, having eight sub-monasteries including a nunnery, was destroyed in the Cultural Revolution and is now gradually being restored.

The monastery was founded in 1899, as a Nyingmapa monastery. It is said that Padmasambhava, founder of Nyingmapa Buddhist School, proceeded his religious cultivation there. Lamas and Nuns are housed in the same monastery. Pilgrims trek a long way to pay votive offerings or see lamas playing operas during big Buddhist days.
300 meters south of the monastery is the famous Rongbuk Glacier. A distance of 10 kilometers lies between Rongbuk Monastery and Everest Base Camp.
