Tengboche is a popular place because of its big monastery and view point. We will find a lot of Yak and Jopkyo (crossed cow and yak) on the way; these large domesticated animals are a major means of transportation for this region. We will find many types of Himalayan trees and wildlife in this region. We can see Chir pine, Blue pine, Juniper, different types of rhododendron and many kinds of herbs and flowers.
