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

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
