I have stayed here several times now. If you want 4 star luxury then don't even come near to Everest but this small hotel has all the charm and character that you could expect at this altitude and isolation in Tibet. Be prepared to be cold though. My last visit was in March and the water barrels which are used for washing were still frozen and the rooms unheated as there is little power to be had here
The communal lounge/eating area is warmed by yak dung fires so is smokey but this is real Tibet. It's how people live!
Sunset and dawn overlooking Everest from your room or the balcony is worth every mile of hard driving and every minute of being cold.
It's a hundred times less basic than the guest house across the road!!!!!More
