Monjo village lies on the edge of Everest (Sagarmatha) National Park’s entrance. The lodge itself sits perched on a hillock at the end of the village, between the local monastery and the oldest standing home in town, over a century old. Upon entering the lodge’s gate, a beautiful long, stone paved walkway leads through the garden and up to a warm and welcoming lobby.
This boutique lodge has just eleven comfortable and generously sized, rooms, boasting rafted ceilings, and very nice en suite bathrooms with hot showers. As with all the Mountain Lodges, little touches, such as the clean, cozy slippers and jackets to snuggle into in the evening, add to the sense of welcome.
The stone-built, green-roofed Monjo lodge, fitted out in classic Sherpa style, is the newest of the Mountain Lodges in the Everest region, and comes with acres of space and some of our most experienced staff. The first floor has two beautiful sunrooms at either corner of the hallway to relax in, and the dining room on the ground floor offers views of the village, and hearty meals served before the warmth of an open fire.
Monjo lodge is known as much for its wonderful staff as for its natural beauty. Chef joyfully serves mouth-watering organic meals, with vegetables he grows in the lodge’s own greenhouse.
Attentive service, large rooms with private bath, hot water for shower, electric blanket for the bed. Three-course meal for dinner, breakfast was porridge, eggs, potatoes. Happy hour with free drinks and snacks before dinner.
