EBC Trek Day 14 Monjo to Lukla

Posted on May 22, 2020, 12:37 pm


Monjo (2815m)

I pushed it from Dole to Monjo. It's a 6h50 walking (16 Km) and I arrived at Monjo yesterday before the sunset. There is a handful of the lodge in Monjo. Despite in the high tourist season, I can easily find a place to stay up on my arrival and without booking in advance.

The lodge I stay located along the little river stream between the valley and face to the trekker road. So from time to time, when the porter passes through the village, the sound of the yak bells mix with the river flow and the singing birds makes a beautiful atmosphere.
The lodge veranda face to the mountain gives a green view to the village’s vegetable garden, two little tables, and some chairs installed on the veranda and I just sit there take a break to enjoy some hot black tea, and seeing the sunset.
Emm! I talk to myself: don't you think this is the paradise?

Fill your life with adventures, not things.
Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

The temperature was not too cold at this altitude so I had a good sleep here.

Located at and the altitude of 2815m, just below the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate and about 2 hours walking or 5 km from Namche Bazar, Monjo was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage in 1979.

This small village is lying along the Dudh Kosi river so farming and plantation are easier.
Fruit and vegetable are less expensive and can be found along the way in the village.
It's depending on the season, for example when I was there in November, there are apples, Pear (Poire), carrot, and Turnip (Navet) that villagers put on the small table in front of their house for sale.
