If you are attracted to high mountain ranges this is the place to visit. Thin air makes the walk a bit slower but the body reacts perfectly to the changes, amazing landscape, and if "Qomolangma" is free of clouds and clear like in our case,...More

What tour operators now promote as the „everest base camp“ is neither a camp nor is it close to mount everest. The real base camp has been closed for some time now for tourists. What you get instead is a fake tourist camp: no climbers,...More

It is practically impossible to prepare fully for this trek. We were at times exhausted but the scenery is so spectacular/breathtaking that it takes away the minor pains and problems that you may encounter over a 12 day trek in high altitude.We used Nepal Eco...More

At 5,200 metres, this is not for the faint hearted! Fortunately you can be driven right to the camp and then take a very short stroll to the viewing point to overlook Everest. This camp is not the true base camp as used by mountaineers...More

Be Careful When Choosing Travel Agency (0 Replies)
First of all, I really wanna thank Frank, without whom we would probably be unable to visit Tibet (though you cannot see this :D). The thing is that we originally found a travel agency in Lhasa to help apply for the Permit, and handed them the necessary material and deposit one and a half month ahead. However, two weeks before departure, they told us that there weren’t enough time to get the Permit! We could either put off our itinerary for one week or cancel it and get back the deposit. And...More

How many days do we need in Tibet? (1 Replies)
I'm looking into going to Lhasa/Tibet for either 3 nights or 5 nights. Can anyone advise me which is better. From what I've read, I think 3 night is sufficient for Lhasa and 5 nights seems maybe too long. It looks like I need more than 5 nights to travel to Mt. Everest base camp. I'm planning a trip for mid October. Thanks in advance for your help!

Equipment needed for Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek (3 Replies)
Hello, My friend and I are going to trek to Everest BC this October of 2007. The company we are going through offers to provide us with equipment or for a couple hundred dollars extra, to provide us with equipment. As far as I know, this only means a sleeping bag and an 'appropriate' down jacket. Can someone give me some recommendations about what they brought and maybe what they wished they did bring?? Also, just any advice in general would be helpful! Thank you! Katherine
