One of the highest-altitude temples in the world, Rongbuk Monastery provides lodgings for weary adventurers navigating this inhospitable and extreme landscape. The spare complex features a smattering of stone buildings; observe the monks in their prayers and snap pictures of the spectacular mountain scenery (and the odd yak). Though very basic in amenities, the monastery lies at Everest's base camp, sitting 4,980 m (16,340 ft) above sea level--the only other alternative at this height is a tent. You'll be able to purchase basic rations, use the extremely basic restrooms, and sleep under a roof with four walls around you (some of the rooms have heated mattresses). It's recommended that you bring your own sleeping bag as the bedding isn't very well maintained, and come with your own toilet paper.
