After 3 days of travel from Lhasa, stopping along the way at Shigatse and Shegar, we finally reached base camp. The visitors camp was better than I expected, with rows of yak tentages forming a rectangular outline. Weather was reasonable. However the fog prevented us from seeing Mt Everest. Took the transport to the Base camp site, costs $25Y each.... More

Seeing the North face of Everest is imply Jaw Dropping. A must see experience that is worth the journey, especially by bicycle. TIP: Travel in May to get good weather while still in the Off Season.

Staying at Everest Tent City and visiting Everest Base Camp - on the Tibetan side of the Himalaya - is an experience that I will never, ever forget. The tent city is a trip in itself. There were 14 of us in 1 tent all sleeping together in simple beds topped and tailed together, clustered around a yak dung fired... More

This company G neglects safety and is the only company I've found that doesn't carry oxygen and poorly trains its staff to prevent (as much as possible) and detect altitude sickness. This nearly cost two lives on our trek. Do not travel with this company.

We went at the beginning of June and the sky was 100% blue no clouds and we could clearly see the peak of the Mt. Everest. We did not bother so we went to take the bus and reached the real base camp. It was almost 25 degrees during the day so we were happily taking pictures and visiting the... More

I was privileged to live out a life dream to go to Mt Everest and get a glimpse of "the" mountain. After camping for several days at Rongbuk Monastery, in order to acclimatize after spending time in Lhasa and Shigatse, I walked the three or so kilometers to the location where there are buses to take visitors to the EBC....

It’s more about the facts that we couldn’t find ourselves when attempting Everest the first time. It’s typical inside information, until now reserved for expedition leaders and veteran Everest climbers only. Such as where to buy oxygen, how to file for a permit, the hunt for sponsors, what to expect in Basecamp politics, to read weather reports, what to beware... More

I booked our trip to Lhasa and to Everest Base Camp with this company. They were totally amazing!! Our guide and driver were the best we have seen. There was no issue they could not resolve (like the hotel forgot to give us our travel permits). We felt safe and secure. Our guide (Yangkyi) was incredibly knowledgeable; so knowledgeable, she...

For those of us who are not mountain climbers, Everest Base Camp (EBC) is as close as we can get to the highest place on Planet Earth. Getting there is not easy but it's definitely worth the effort. I suggest spending the night, either at the marginally adequate government guest house across the road from the Rongphu Monastery, or at... More

We stayed at EBC, Tibet in a large tent for 1 night. The tent was big and comfortable enough, there were plenty of blankets to keep us warm, but we all also had our own sleeping bags (worth taking one as I'm not sure how often/thoroughly they clean the blankets). The tent was heated by sheep and yak dung, it... More
