Junbesi Nepal Monastery and Hoopoe Photos

In Junbesi, at the end of day 4 on a Jiri-Gokyo Everest view trek, a European couple who’d also stayed overnight in Goyom after trekking from Kinja asked their guide/porter to visit the main monastery.

The guide/porter arranged a meeting with the lama, and a rainbow appeared behind him soon after he joined us.

Junbesi was the biggest community since Jiri, and many trekkers were staying two nights there.

Hoopoe Photo

I saw a colourful strange bird on the washing-line from the Apple Garden lodge and made it out to take the third from bottom photo.

I later found out it’s a hoopoe, and there’s a couple of zoomed photos at the end.

Nepal Everest View Trek Photos

On the fourth day trekking from Jiri to Gokyo for Everest views, walking up to Lamjura La in the morning was enjoyable, with bright forest colours mixed with a fantastic view into the valley below. The sun had been out, but it clouded over entering the village.

Lamjura La is perched on a 3500 metres (10, 000 feet) peak, 2000 metres (6000 feet) above Kinja. After crossing the peak, adorned with Buddhist icons, the Taktor Khola valley led down to Junbesi. Here’s some photos:
