The Khunde village (3,840m) is famous for Khunde Chamkang, a Buddhist temple. Inside the temple is a statue of thousand-armed Avalokitesvara, the Tibetan god of compassion, who is represented on earth by Dalai Lama.

The 'Saturday Market' at the bottom of Namche is interesting for tourists to get a chance to socialize and shopping.
