Monjo is a small village in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It lies in the Dudh Kosi river valley just north of Phakding and south of Jorsale, at an altitude of 2835 m,[1] just below the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate and check-point,[2][3] one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.

The trail start at Lukla and Monjo is often a stopping point for trekkers, as an alternative of Phakding, on their way to Sagarmartha (Mount Everest) via the Gokyo Ri route or Tengboche route.[2]

Its primary function of the village is to support the tourism industry and as such consists of a number of guesthouses.[2]
