Khumjung Gomba, Nepal

Khumjung Gomba is a buddhist teaching monastery. Khumjung (3970 m) is also home to the original Sir Edmund Hillary School situated in the heart of the village.

The monastery has a display of a scalp that purportedly came from a yeti. Like every tourist, I made a donation before I could get a glimpse of this yeti scalp that is locked inside a cabinet. I am no yeti expert but the furry object did look like something that came from an animal.
