Long and tormenting ride to the Everest Base camp. There is a speed limit of 30km/h, so be prepared to rest in many uninteresting places. Base camp is freaking cold, and the tents and not of the normal comfort level you can find. At night, they actual burn cow dung for the heat and the smell is not pleasant. Other... More

One of my main reasons to visit Tibet was to come to Base Camp on the North Side...now I have seen it from both sides....this side is more iconic. We were not able to go all the way to Base Camp, but could see it just below us. It was also neat to see the memorial stone to George Leigh... More

Everest Base Camp is one of the best experience in the world. But there have some important time to visit there. Usually most of travel company they make schedule like overnight in Baber(New Tingri) and next day visit the Everest Base Camp. I highly recommended you to wake up early in the morning like 6:30 am and drive to Everest... More

A trip to the Everest Base Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I hiked about two hours with friends and the view was fantastic. We climbed up a pass and got amazing photos. Staying at the tent city is also a must-do.

Despite altitude sickness and a long bus trip of 2 days, I made it to Mt. Qomolangma Base Camp of 5200metres.Not what I expected. First stop was a small car park with merchants selling Tibetan jewellery and artefacts. A few small tents serving as hotels and eateries. The mini-bust drove us up to the monument overlooking base camp in the... More

My friends and I arrived in June, which I guess is monsoon season so our views of mt Everest were cloudy. We were lucky to see the summit and various other parts. Everest base camp and Everest tourist base camp are two separate things. Everyone stays at the tourist base camp and you have to walk to take a bus... More

We had a fantastic 15 day Gokyo + EBC trek with our guide Hari Gurung and porter Pikay (sp?). Hari was a truly incredible guide- always energetic and extremely knowledgeable about his job after being on all the treks for more than 25 years. He knows the area extremely well and can describe every detail of the path like the... More

Finally, we visited the Everest Base Camp (Tibet Side) on May 1, 2016. It was an unforgetable and wonderful experience, especially seeing Everest for the first time during sunrise. EBC is above 5.000 meters high.. We are not climbers nor mountaineer, with age above 40 years and from the tropic country. With all the perfect combination, the altitude sickness is... More

If you are able to make the long journey to get to base camp, it's an incredible view if the weather is right.

Finally made this trip in May this year after cancelling in 2015 due to the earthquake in Nepal. It was an unforgettable and wonderful experience in Tibet. The altitude got to us a little but we eventually made it to EBC and the feeling was surreal, especially seeing Everest for the first time during the sunrise. The Tibetian people are... More
