This is the entry way to the Sagarmatha National Park. You'll notice the warning about how the altitude can kill you. The park entrance was guarded but half a dozen soldiers. They had weapons, but I don't know if there were any bullets in them. They wouldn't let us take any photos that had soldiers in them. I don't know why they needed a military force... perhaps to keep the Maoists at bay, or maybe to make sure everyone paid their 1000 NR entrance fee.
