I visited the monastery while staying for several days at the Everest View Hotel, located on a ridge above Khumjung. Easy hike down and back up, so we would come down into Khumjung/Khunde each day to have lunch and explore. This small jewel of a monastery is definitely worth a visit, a nice excursion from either Namche Bazaar or if you are staying at the Everest View.

We were told that this monastery no longer has resident Monks and is only maintained for various festivals and religious ceremonies during the year. Monks from surrounding monasteries do reside here during those events. The Yeti scalp is the centerpiece, but the rest of the monastery is more interesting. Entry, as of our visit, is NRs 300. Not sure I would make a special trip here, but if yetis are your thing......

During an acclimatisation day at Namche we explored local villages. A number of us felt the effects of altitude that day and meeded to take things easy.
After our first sight of Everest we toddled down to the village and included the monastery where the scalp of the yeti is held.
Great to see local people going about their normal roles

A gompa is a Buddhist monastery. Highlight of the Khumjung Gompa is the claim of a yeti scalp. Cost to see the yeti scalp was 250 Rupees. The yeti scalp is enclosed in a glass box and you are allowed to take photos of it. It was definitely interesting to see it but is it real?

I had stopped in Khumjung during my trek to the Everest Base Camp and visited the gompa while I walked around the village.

Visited this small Buddhist shrine , on the way to Khunde.
Nice decorations inside the main temple , and we could see, the so called Yeti Scalp inside a green compartment .We give the keeper small amount of money , and he will open the cabinet and display the 'Yeti Scalp', to us.
Worth a visit , when you are nearby
