Please stay away from having anything to do with this company. We recently travelled to Tibet and booked our travel through Tibettravel.org who organises its tours through CITS. We are currently in dispute with the company as we have discovered that they had overcharged us over $120 US dollars for some sort of administration fee that was not mentioned anywhere... More

We spent one night at the Everest Base Camp and we had the option to choose between the traditional tibetan tent or the guesthouse. We chose the tent and it was an incredible amazing experience, problably one of the most beautiful of our lives. Seeing the Everest in front of us is something that I can´t describe. The sky at...

The Everest is not only the tallest but also one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. I could not stop staring and taking pictures while at the base camp. The drive up from old Tingri is strenous, especially for little children, but definitely worth it. It takes about 4 hours to reach the camp, so make sure you... More

This was an amazing journey.Anyone thinking of doing this trek,I suggest training before hand as I did.Need to be moderately fit,and healthy as the altitude can have an effect on your health.drink plenty of water,at least three to four litres a day,as you can become extremely dehydrated.walking poles a must...All in all, a great 16 day trip.

While we enjoyed an amazing trek, we used a company g adventures. We had two climbers suffer life threatening altitude sickness. The company does not carry oxygen and had no idea what to do. Their response to me was:..financial cost to implement oxygen to be carried by every guide is extremely phobibiative. Quote from G which values profit above life.... More

Always been facinated by Mt Everest, never understoodt he appael what made people climb it or what people found so attractive about mountains... But strangely enough, it was one of these locations on my bucket list (Tibet), and of course you can't go without going to Base Camp. It made an incredible impression on me, we were lucky with very... More

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.
