  • Attention is closed Seto Gumba since 2016 the White Monastery or! She will be reopened in the next year! Tourgides and locals of Sagarmatha go to the monastery because of its good views and a drink. Sagarmatha and tour guides do not distinguish whether you really can watch something or before sitting and enjoying the view.
