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

Staying in the tent camps was a great experience. Each family has their two tents for visitors and the other for their kitchen and sleeping quarters. The visitors tent sleeps 12 and was really comfortable with a stove In the center that kept thing warm, but at night you need to burrow under the pile of comforters. The view of... More

The base camp was very basic. The 25 yuan bus ride up from the tent area was good. The view of Everest, North Face was direct and having clear blue sky, it was heavenly. The feeling was indescribable. I woke up with slight dark clouds, but they cleared as the morning progressed. We took the bus up to the base... More

It has always been my dream to see the Himalayas and go to Tibet. I had an amazing adventure on a private tour with Tibettravel.org. The road to the EBC was frightening at times, but the driver was great, and the scenery spectacular. I was worried about this part of my trip. I thought it would be better and a... More

In case Tibet is on your list, then Mt. Everest (Mother of Earth) 5,200M (Mt. Everest is 8844.43M high) altitude above sea level is a must. You will feel close to the sky and be able to contemplate the beauty of raw nature. Tibet itself is special, Mt. Everest even more. Bring food with you, some noodles or instant soup,... More

Even if people say that others views are more beautifull then this one, being in front of the geant Everest was wonderfull! The road from Tingri to Ronbuk is litlle hard (2 hours by jeep) but the scenery is fantastic. Make thousands of photos! Arriving there, take a noodle soup and a tea in one of the tents (delicious) and... More

Went with the Intrepid tour group to EBC who I highly recommend. The group had 12 people in it, a great way to make new friends and share the adventure. We had one main guide who went above and beyond for our 15 day trek, 4 assistant guides who walked at different paces with us, took our meal orders etc... More

After reading the last two reviews I was little bit scary about ATT(Access Tibet tour) services, but I got a great surprise! First of all, I quoted with 4 different agencies offering the same service, the only one that was looking for me everyday was ATT. The Tibet permit was submitted on time and me and my friends didn't have... More

Wow what a great experience trekking to Mt Everest Base Camp. The mountains are incredibly beautiful. I unfortunately was one of the 5% of trekkers that experienced AMS. I was extremely disappointed that I had to be evacuated after I had reached Base Camp and that I didn't complete the whole trek back down to Lukla. Just a reminder to... More
