Mt Everest is beautiful but the visit from the Tibetian side was certainly not as advertised! We were able to see Mt Everest but we certainly did not feel that we were at the 'base' of it. We were miles from it... The base camp itself is a total dump. They are big nasty tents that house 12 to 14 guests - mixed genders with most of the occupants smoking. The cots have nasty carpents on them and blankets/pillows provided are TOTALLY dirty. The tents are poorly heated and the heat is from goat and sheep dung. There is no running water and the toilet facilities are deplorable. The only thing availalbe is a squat toilet with absolutely NO privacy. There are two holes per area so you can't even do your business in peace. The cost of our 10 day excursion was extravagant and we were certainly not prepared for such nasty living conditions. At base camp be prepared to eat, sleep, and pee in total squalor. There are no linens provided so if you do stay here - get a sleeping bag!!! Also, at night, the one naked lightbulb is turned off and there is total darkness. Forget even trying to get out of the tent to go to the toilet. There is no light... and no path to the toilet. Bring a flashlight if you plan to stay here. I would also bring my own food since the tent owner will be cooking your food... and is also putting dung in the fire. Did I mention that there is no running water and I never sanitizing gel anywhere.
I do not recommend using Wendy Wu or this facility!
