Rongbuk meditation cave of Guru Rinpoche


Rongbuk monastery is located at the elevation of 5200M, near Mount Everest North Face Base Camp.

This time, our article is not about the main Rongbuk monastery. Our article is about the Upper Rongbuk monastery, which is located around 4 km from Rongbuk monastery and Mount Everest North Face Base Camp.

I still remember the days in 2003, when I used to visit the Upper Rongbuk monastery to meet Monk Sangay, he renounced worldly life and lived here in the summer. Monk Sangay is a humble person who lives like a Yogi and I admire him. Sometimes he can roll his dice to prophecy us about our future.

  1. Underground Meditation Cave of Guru Rinpoche.
  2. Nuns meditation caves
  3. Monk Sangay 

The 8th-century cozy underground meditation cave of Guru Padmasambhava is at the upper Rongbuk Monastery. On the backside of the small house of Monk Sangay, there are a few nuns meditating in the summer. There is also a stone, from where we can check how much evil Karma we have.

Once I went with Monk Sangay and he told me the whole story about the shapes and design of the mountains nearby. It was a great experience for me. At the moment, to preserve Mount Everest National Park Eco non-pollution bus from Tashizom town, visiting Upper Rongbuk Monastery is restricted. I think it's good that the monks and nuns at Upper Rongbuk Monastery can meditate peacefully.  I have written the article to bring some blessings to all the Travelers.
