The Thangboche Monastery is Buddhist, though 81% of the population of Nepal is Hindu. It is famous internationally because of its spectacular location on the main route to the base camp of Mt. Everest where it offers the first clear view of the highest mountain in the world. It became famous after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay made a stop there on their way to conquering Everest. Today, more than 30,000 people a year visit the monastery which is set in Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
