Slight disappointment
Oct 2019
My only complaint was the distance to Mt. Everest. It is 10 miles away and it's closest you can get on the China-side. The mountain is still magnificent... but being this far away takes some of the magic away. The overnight stay and tent city were fine. Everyone was super friendly.

Fantastic, but not really base camp!
Oct 2019
This place was wonderful for pictures of Everest. We were bused to the area, so you can't really hike/trek to base camp. Additionally, they closed base camp a few years ago to only mountain climbers. This area is about 3 miles short of base camp. There were about 20-25 people there while we were there and so there was some waiting for certain pictures, but not terrible.

Awesome!
Oct 2019
Certainly the most accessible route to getting near to Everest, since the Nepal side involves a 2wk trek but the Tibet side gets you there by bus all the way!
Pleasantly surprised to see that all the clean up efforts this year have been worth it. Never saw a scrap of litter and everything was unspoilt. Yes, there were some pop up stalls beside the Post Office but were out of the way and didn't interfere with the panorama. We were lucky to get a clear day and great view, plus there is a yak living at base camp that likes to get in on your photos!
Very calm, serene and awesome to be there.

Successful trek!
Oct 2019
It was a wonderful trip but it was hard work. We hired a local porter which I think was the wisest decision ever made. The trek experience was not all about an endurance test. We also didn't travel with a group, which added to our success. It just meant that we could go at our own pace safely with flexibility to stay an extra day at a village as needed. Started in Lukla and on the way up we trekked and stayed in Phakding, Namche, Pangboche, Dingboche, Chukkung, Lobuche (2 nights due to slight headache), and Gorak Shep (2 nights due to snow). We made it to Base Camp (during snow). Next day, it continued to snow, so we waited the following day and we had a blue sky beautiful day to hike up Kala Patthar for a spectactular view of Everest and Nuptse and 360 views of other giant mountains. We started at 7:30am and got to the top of Kala Patthar 9:15am which was perfect. 2.5 days to come down, sleeping in Dughle and Namche.

its not what u expect
Apr 2019
settled at the base of south face of Everest is this campsite with multinational temporary citizens. one can't stay there unless part of a summit expedition. but one can walk there about 6 km or 2 hrs from gorakshep which has several tea houses. it hosts the highest bakery of the world at about 17, 600 ft altitude. the camp is occupied only in April to may, summit season. u can't see Everest perseverance from here. it was fun to reach there but I personally was a bit disappointed. much better view from kala patter

Arriving there is not easy but once you get there you get amazed by the magnificence of the Everest (Qomolangma in tibetan).
We were very lucky because we colud see the mountain without and also covered by the clouds... Both is great.

Awesome but beware

This has to be one of the most challenging Mountain climbs in the world.
It takes about 8 days to get to Base camp and 4 days back. The whole route is a lot of den and ups and although the route is only 130km, you do end up doing a lot more on acclimatisation days where you climb and come back to the same location.
These days are important so that your body gets used to less oxygen as you go higher.
The views are amazing and the whole experience is serene - imagine no cars or bikes or even wheelbarrows everything goes by animals or humans or helicopters! From one of the most dangerous airport in the world - Lukla, the to the dynamic changing temperatures during the day from -15 to +30 C, there are challenges. Having heard about litter, I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the whole trek - only 4 pieces of rubbish.
Anyone can do this, but beware it’s tough. Essential to prepare, have guides, choose a trekking company - I used IanTaylortrekking.com cannot praise them enough - fantastic organisation, best accommodations along the way, lots of contingencies covered as a matter of course and of course a personal touch with so much good advice. I have to give Hotel Namche a mention - best facilities, food, ambience and hospitality.

Everest Base Camp is a lifetime experience you will never forget. And you will love this adventure !!! Believe me it's not easy, but definitely worth it. If you are an adventure lover then without sleeping a night in Gorakshep and walking to base camp in minus temperature is not completed ! If you think it, you can do it !

Mount Everest Base camp
Nov 2018 • Solo
Terrible, terrible company with terrible guides. I did the mount Everest Base camp trek in November 2018 and I became seriously ill from altitude sickness. I was vomiting every day and I could not breathe properly. The guide Masky was unhelpful to the point of being dangerous, he did not offer me any assistance and when I was too weak to go on, he left me completely alone for one week on the mountain, with no one to check on me. I became so ill on the way back down that one day I could not breathe at all and I lost all feeling in my hands and feet. The guide did nothing to help me and had no oxygen to help me. You endangered my life and my health.
