Ronbuk Monastery

Atop the Rongpu Qinzhogma Hill at the foot of Mt. Qomolangma, the monastery is 90 kilometers away from the Tingri County seat and is 5,800 meters above sea level, the highest of its kind in the world. Annually it holds three-day sorcerers activities on the 15th of the fourth month and the Ghost-Beating Festival on the 29th of the 11th month of the Tibetan calendar.

It is 60 kilometers from New Tingri to the Rongpu Monasterry. Tourists can take a taxi to go to the monastery because there is no regular bus. The monastery provides lodging places for 25 yuan each bed. Camping on lawn costs 10 yuan.
