Everest Base Camp Tour--having a tour on the summit of the Earth

Last Update: March 20, 2020

Why go

Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, stands lofty at the Tibetan plateau at 8844.43 meters above sea level. As the main peak of the Himalaya range, it borders on Tibet Autonomous Region of China in the north and Nepal in the south, thus is co-owned by the two countries. Its stunning natural beauty and symbolic meanings attracts tens of thousands of tourists coming for a visit on this summit of the earth. Everest Base Camp, the closest tourists’ site to the top of Mount Everest and also the last stop of Everest tour, symbolizes the limit of self-challenge as Mount Everest enjoys the reputation of the roof of the world with more than 40 peaks that are 7000 meters above sea level.

Since Everest Base Camp is generally referred to as either of the two base camps on the opposite sides of Mount Everest, namely, the South Base Camp in Nepal and the North Base Camp in Tibet, thus if you plan for an EBC tour, you could come either from Nepal or Tibet. 

What to see

Our Everest Base Camp tour includes but not limited to an EBC journey only. You could visit Lhasa, the political and religious center of Tibet and sightsee the world-renowned Potala Palace; Jokhang temple, built in 1300 years ago; some landmark monasteries of Tibet native Gelug sect, such as Drepung monastery and Sera monastery; Namtso lake and Yamdrok Lake of the three Holy lakes; the cradle of Tibetan civilization—Shannan and Shigatse. Of course the highlight of this tour program is Mount Everest Base Camp, the last stop and closest tourist site to the highest peak on Earth.

When go

The best seasons for an Mount Everest Base Camp tour are from April to June, and September to December. Travel to EBC in Spring season is not cold and the weather is always sunny with blue clear sky. Though it might be cold in winter, the weather is fairly ideal for travel in EBC since it is the dry season in Tibet. Thus, you can enjoy Mt. Everest panorama in clear weather. On the other hand, the traditional high season of tourism -- July and August are not a good choice for an EBC tour, as it is the rainy season and the mountain is often shrouded in cloud and mist.

What to Pack for EBC Tour

Packing for an EBC tour is as easy as any tour you prepared for a high altitude trekking. To keep the warmth of body is the key for an EBC tour. You need warmer layers of clothes, better hiking boots, different socks and gloves and many others to ward off the cold in a high altitude. We will provide you detailed information on the packing and gears for an EBC tour in our website for your reference. Turn to our website and get information you need then you will be more informed and prepared for your EBC tour.

Accommodation in EBC

Accommodation in Everest Base Camp is relatively simple compared with those in other areas. Tourists coming for an EBC tour could either stay in the Rongbuk Monastery guesthouse or stay in tent guest houses in and around EBC areas; stay in the hotels in Old Dingri is an another good choice when you are not so close to EBC. You could consult our experienced travel guides and they will make careful arrangements for you.

Food and Drinks in EBC

Food and drinks are essential in your EBC tour, but they are not so bountiful in EBC areas. It is essential to know about what food and drinks available around the EBC. You could either bring your own food and drinks yourself or ask for our guides’ help. Eat well during your tour you will certainly reap a colorful EBC tour.
