Frequently Asked Questions about Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour

  • 1. How to get to Everest Base Camp (Tibetan side)?

    Compared to the southern base camp of Mount Everest in Nepal, the northern Everest Base Camp is relatively easier to reach. Although no airport or railway station are available near Mount Everest, there is a well-paved highway leading to the camp site. One can get to Everest Base Camp from Lhasa by overland, as a popular option, via Friendship Highway. Covering around 600 km, the road trip from Lhasa to EBC will take you through Lake Yamdrok, Gyantse, Shigatse, Tingri and Rongbuk Monastery successively, with the altitude gradually climbing up to over 5000m. It requires normally 8 days to complete the journey from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp and back to Lhasa.

    In addition, one can also get to EBC from Kathmandu by taking an overland trip via the Gyirong Border. Getting from Kathmandu to Gyirong (the China-Nepal border) will follow a bumpy road. But from Gyirong, it is a well-paved road of around 334 kilometers to EBC. If there are more destinations than EBC listed in your tour plan, it is recommended to join the classic overland tour from Kathmandu to Lhasa, and pay a visit to Everest Base Camp on the way.

  • 2. What are the permits to visit Everest Base Camp in Tibet?

    In order to visit Everest Base Camp in Tibetan side, you need to book an organized tour with a local tour operator like us, who will handle the permits on behalf of you. The Tibet Travel Permit is the primary essential document that should be obtained before you enter Tibet. Your Chinese Visa and passport are required to apply for the permit. In addition, foreigners need to get the Aliens’ Travel Permit to enter the EBC region.

    One more thing to be noted, if you get to Tibet from Nepal, you will need to obtain the Chinese Group Visa, instead of the Chinese Visa, together with the Tibet Travel Permit. Unlike the latter, the group visa can only be applied through the Embassy in Kathmandu. It is advised to reserve yourself enough time (at least 3 days in Kathmandu) for the application.

  • 3. When is the best time to visit Everest Base Camp?

    The best time to visit EBC in Tibet is from April to June and September to November. During the two periods, the temperature is moderate and the weather is warm. In Spring, the snowy land begins to unfreeze and revive, with flowers blooming and trees turning green. It is the best time to trek Mount Everest to take in the breathtaking landscape along the trail. When it comes to autumn, the sky becomes clearer and the air turns dryer. It is the perfect time to see a clear view of Mount Everest, with great visibility and stable weather condition.

    Additionally, during the summer months (July-August), Tibet experiences its rainy season, but rainfall mostly occurs at night, leaving clear skies and comfortable temperatures during the day, making it a viable option.

    In winter (November to March of the following year), temperatures are lower, but clear days offer excellent views of Mount Everest's starry skies and the Milky Way. Winter is Tibet's off-season for tourism, with lower tour prices for visits to Mount Everest, making it a more cost-effective choice.

  • 4. What kind of accommodations are available at Everest Base Camp?

    Currently, tourists can stay in the tent guesthouse at Everest Base Camp. The tents at EBC are only available from April to November, and are roughly equipped for the basic accommodation condition. There are beds with extra quilts, hot water, and electricity until midnight. But the toilets are outside the tents. Though simply equipped, the tents at EBC can ensure you a warm night stay at the high altitude of 5000m.

    In winter, tent guesthouses at Everest Base Camp will close and be removed. So if you come to visit Tibet Everest Base Camp in winter season, you will need to find accommodation in alternative places such as Tashi Dzom Town or Basong Village.

  • 5. How long is the trek to Everest Base Camp?

    For those who want to hike to Everest Base Camp, one can go through the trek from Old Tingri, which is one of greatest treks in Tibet. The trek from Old Tingri to EBC covers around 70 kilometers and is of moderate difficulty, with altitude ranging between 4400m and 5000m. It is advised to complete the trek in four whole days, so that you can balance your energy and have enough time to explore the glaciers and valleys on the way. As a wise option, you can choose to join in our 10-day EBC trek tour, which will take you to smoothly experience the classic trek, accompanied by our professional guides.

  • 6. Are there times when Mount Everest isn't visible? If so, what should I do?

    At times, Mount Everest may not be visible due to factors like high altitude and variable weather conditions, though this occurrence is rare.

    To increase the chances of seeing Mount Everest, it's advisable to plan your visit during stable weather seasons such as spring and autumn. Showers around Mount Everest typically pass quickly, even if it rains. Consulting our experienced travel advisors before your trip can provide valuable insights into the weather conditions.

    Our itinerary offers four opportunities to witness Mount Everest's beauty, ensuring at least one clear viewing opportunity.

    Additionally, maintaining a positive mindset and appreciating Tibet's diverse beauty beyond Mount Everest is essential. Even if Mount Everest isn't visible, the surrounding natural scenery and unique plateau landscapes are captivating. The journey to Mount Everest is an adventure embracing natural wonders and mesmerizing plateau scenery, extending beyond the mountain itself.

  • 7. What essentials should I pack for a trip to Mount Everest in Tibet?

    (1) Clothing: Bring thick underwear or thermal underwear, a sweater or fleece, and a thick down jacket for upper garments. For lower wear, pack windproof pants and warm thermal leggings. Choose non-slip sports shoes or hiking boots for footwear, and don't forget scarves, gloves, and hats. Layering clothing is recommended for adapting to temperature changes.

    (2) Personal items: Remember skincare products like facial cleanser, moisturizer, facial masks, body lotion, lip balm, and sunscreen. Bring personal hygiene items such as toothpaste, toothbrush, and towels. Consider packing shampoo and shower products based on your preferences. Sunglasses are essential due to Tibet's intense sunlight. Bring a U-shaped pillow for comfort during long journeys between attractions. Don't forget a thermal flask for access to hot water anytime.

    (3) Common medications: Pack adhesive bandages, motion sickness medicine, cold medicine, gastrointestinal medicine, anti-inflammatory drugs, eye drops, altitude sickness medication, and other commonly used medications for emergencies. Always follow medical advice and avoid misuse of medication.

    (4) Electronic devices: Bring chargers, power banks, cameras, earphones, or any other electronic devices you may need.

    (5) Cash and bank cards: While mobile payment methods are increasingly popular in Tibet, there may still be occasions in remote areas where cash is necessary. Carry a small amount of cash and at least one bank card for convenience.
