A wonderful experience in every way thanks to Himalayan Wonders. Having had a very very bad experience with G Adventures( the company, not the guides) only last year, Himalayan Wonders provided first class service, generosity, professionalism, warmth and expertise. They put safety and comfort first unlike G Adventures. If you're thinking of doing this trip, you won't regret it if... More

A journey worth taking by road if you are in Lhasa, as the route to reach Mt. Everest is absolutely stunning. It is nature untouched. I took the route from Lhasa-Yamdrok Lake-Shigatse-Old Tingri-Everest Base Camp (North Face)-Lhasa. Every color here is deeper than usual. And you start seeing the Himalayas various peaks, bit by bit. If you have a patient... More

It is too touristy! There are lots of checking points, and it takes longer time to get there and back. Well the suitable season is April, May, early June, end of August, Sept, October. It depends on the weather actually. But very risky to meet the bad weather in July and August. The road between Shegar and Rongphu gets better... More

It is one of world's amazing place from where you can have superb splendid view of the north face of world's highest mountain - Mt. Everest. You can reach upto base camp by drive, you don't need to trek. While if you are going EBC through Nepal side, then you have to trek for 7 days to reach base camp.... More

The visit to Everest Base Camp is fantastic. Take 15 steps and stop for breath. While there is not much there to actually do, just the fact that you are there is what makes this one of the most amazing spots on earth. Stopped and stayed the night at Rongbuk Monastery - about 5 km away and the highest monastery... More

Seems crazy that you can drive up to Everest Base Camp, and its an iconic journey through a distinctive Tibetan landscape. But it does mean you get up to over 5000m pretty quickly, so take care. Whilst I was comfortable at 3500-4000m that a lot of Tibet sits at I really noticed the difference going to 5000m. I found that... More

I have visited Everest base camp on both the Chinese and Nepalese sides of Everest. On the Chinese side you can drive all the way to base camp its a long drive on a rough track but is possible in a normal vehicle. Everest is towards the northern side of the Everest range and from base camp you can see... More

My Mt Everest Base Camp trek was phenomenal. Even after days of trekking, I would just stop in awe at the experience that was unfolding before me. Incredible landscapes, snow-capped mountain tops and an awesome guide made the trip. I found my Sherpa guide, Kami, on tripadvisor oddly enough, in a post from a lady named Heather who had used...
