The Tengboche Monastery is the most important monastery for the Sherpas of the Khumbu region. It is tradition that every climbing expedition to Mt. Everest be blessed by the head Lama of this monastery. The monastery is also significant because a decree from the Lama prohibits killing within the premises which is largely the reason why the Sagarmatha National Park is a refuge for a variety of endangered fauna.
