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.

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...

After hours of off road driving, you are happy to arrive at the tibet side everest base camp (Tourist base Camp) it is like a small town made of tents, where you sleep ans eat. You can see the the local people showing you some aspect of their life (It's off course made for tourists), share a lot with them... More

Well, There are a few spots in the everest region that perhaps are more stunning, if you want to see the gems of the region - continue to Kalapathar and gokyo. But the mere understanding that you are standing in the base camp of the the highest mountain on earth, where top mountaineers gather yearly to tackle this enormous task..... More

For: • Fantastic trek for mountains, villages, culture, adventure • Gokyo Valley has less crowds & is different in a number of ways from the main Khumbu valley • Gokyo Ri experience and views were fantastic • EBC is a thrill although it is basically only a sign surrounded by tourists during the non-climbing season • views from Gorek Shep...

Travelled as organised group of 10 Australians. Wonderful trip but company G Adventures neglected safety nearly causing the death of two Trekkers due to altitude sickness and poor staff training. The response was to say it was too expensive to carry oxygen. The offer of a free return trip declined as no changes to OHS. Do not travel with G... More

Stayed at base camp before and after the trip up the North Col of Everest. Desolate and sparse, enthrall one and brilliant views. They keep the climbers and day visitors separate with an armed vehicle and checkpoints. Fantastic to be on Everest!
