I spent two nights at the Everest Summit lodge in Monjo on my recent Gokyo Lakes trek. I was very happy with the lodge, the rooms were clean and spacious (the electric blankets appreciated) and the food was very good. The service was excellent, including a piece of coffee cake in the afternoon and an endless supply of tea. The location of the lodge is very quiet, a bit above the main trail, with good views of Kongde and Thamserku.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vivid wildflowers, brightly-painted teahouses and fluttering prayer flags greet you on arrival in Monjo. A comfortable five-hour's walk over gentle undulating hills from Lukla, Monjo lies at an altitude of 2850m. The Everest Summit Lodge at Monjo overlooks the village and the narrow, but fierce, Dudh Koshi river. Khumbila peak, the abode of Khumbu region deity, keeps watch over the lodge. An excursion to Thachok hill (3000m) and an extra night in Monjo are usually planned for acclimatisation. ... more less
