The first stop will be at Yamdrok Lake, one of the three holiest lakes in Tibet. This stunning lake unveils its beauty from the Gambala Mountain Pass (4790m), curving like a blue ribbon, while the towering Mt. Noijin Kangsang (7191m) can be seen in the distance.

Towards the lake's end, you'll have the opportunity to visit a welcoming local family in the village and have lunch with them.

As night descends, the glistening Milky Way alongside the snow-white peak of Mount Everest offers your fifth and final encounter with the majestic peak.

Stay overnight at Everest Base Camp or in the nearby village if the EBC tent hotels close during the winter season.

Warm Tips:
1. Everest Base Camp sits at an altitude of 5200 meters, and it's common to experience headaches and difficulty sleeping at night due to altitude. This is a normal occurrence, so there's no need to panic. Continue to take it slow, relax, and savor the beauty of Everest. The symptoms will gradually ease.

2. The visibility of Mount Everest depends on weather conditions and cannot be assured.

3. From November to March, the tent hotels at Everest Base Camp usually close. Hence, if you're traveling during this period, your accommodation choices are restricted to the nearby village near EBC.

Following breakfast, your journey will take you northward through the vast and expansive Damxung Grassland, a pastoral region bustling with herds of cattle and sheep and located closest to Lhasa.

During the journey, as you ascend the 5,190-meter-high Laken La Pass, a panoramic view of Namtso Lake will unfold, resembling an emerald jewel set amidst the northern Tibetan landscape.

Following your guide, you'll reach the lakeshore and trek to Tashi Dor Island for a closer panoramic view of the lake. Standing here, the vista mirrors an expansive blue ocean.

Occasional passing trains stir the air, lending the pure plateau a radiant brilliance.

Subsequently, your guide will lead you on a lakeside hike to marvel at mystical stone columns, peaks, meditation caves, and Buddhist sacred sites. If you wish, linger at Namtso Lake, savor warm sweet tea at a lakeside teahouse, or witness the magnificent sunset.

The monastery houses numerous precious artifacts, including the unique relics of the 16th Karmapa, a revered figure in Tibetan Buddhism.

Everest Base Camp and Namtso Lake Trip Notes

  • 1. When is the deadline to book this 10-day Everest Base Camp and Namtso Lake Small Group Tour?

    To ensure a seamless trip, it is recommended to book your Tibet tour at least 15-20 days before the departure date.

    Certainly, booking your tour 1-2 months or earlier in advance will assist us in arranging your Tibet Travel Permit and other necessary documents, as well as securing accommodations. Additionally, early bookings may qualify for early-bird discounts. This arrangement facilitates better preparation and a more relaxed journey.

  • 2. What travel documents are required for a trip to Everest Base Camp and Namtso Lake?

    For traveling to Tibet Everest Base Camp and Lake Namtso, various tourists require specific travel documents:

    1) Foreign tourists: Passport, Chinese Visa, Tibet Travel Permit, Alien’s Travel Permit
    2) Tourists from Hong Kong and Macau: Home Return Permit, Frontier Pass
    3) Tourists from Taiwan: Mainland Travel Permit (MTP), Tibet Travel Permit, etc.
  • 3. How to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit? How long does It take, and when can I get the permit?

    For foreign tourists applying for the Tibet Travel Permit, photos or photocopies of a valid passport and Chinese Visa are needed. Holders of a working visa need to additionally provide a work certificate, while student visa holders require student certification.

    However, Taiwanese tourists only need to provide photos or photocopies of Mainland Travel Permit for the Tibet Travel Permit application.

    Generally, processing the Tibet Travel Permit takes 7-14 working days. Once the permit is successfully issued, we'll mail it to your address in mainland of China 3-5 days before your departure date, ensuring you have it in hand for your train or flight to Tibet.

  • 4. What is the altitude of Everest Base Camp? What should I do If altitude sickness occurs?

    Everest Base Camp in Tibetan side is situated at an altitude of 5200 meters, making it one of the highest points on this journey. Visitors who are new to high-altitude areas may experience mild symptoms of altitude sickness such as dizziness and headaches.

    Our thoughtfully planned 8-day itinerary from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp allows for 2-3 days of acclimatization in Lhasa, situated at an altitude of 3650 meters, before proceeding to higher altitudes like Shigatse and Everest Base Camp. This gradual ascent minimizes the chances of severe altitude reactions.

    If severe symptoms occur, such as intense headaches or breathing difficulties, promptly use oxygen, inform your guide, and seek medical attention as soon as possible. If necessary, immediate descent to lower altitudes like Shigatse Town or Tingri County may be arranged.

  • 5. When is the best time to visit Everest Base Camp and Lake Namtso?

    The best season to visit Tibet Everest Base Camp and Lake Namtso is spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October). During these periods, the weather tends to be stable and clear, providing favorable conditions for observing Mount Everest and the holy lake.

    Additionally, in the summer months (July-August), although Tibet experiences its rainy season, most rainfall occurs at night, and daytime skies remain mostly clear with comfortable temperatures, making it a viable option.

    During winter (November to March of the following year), temperatures are lower, yet days are often clear, allowing for a better appreciation of Mount Everest's starry skies and the Milky Way. But heavy snowfall frequently occurs in the region, often causing road closures. So visiting Namtso Lake during this time depends on the weather conditions.

  • 6. Are there instances when mount Everest might not be visible? What should I do If that happens?

    Due to factors like high altitude and ever-changing weather, there might be times when Mount Everest isn't visible during the visit. However, this isn't a common occurrence.

    To increase the likelihood of seeing Mount Everest, it's best to plan your visit to Everest Base Camp during the stable weather seasons of spring and autumn. Even if there's rain, showers around Mount Everest tend to pass quickly. Of course, you can always reach out to our experienced travel advisors before your trip to get insights into Mount Everest's weather conditions. To maximize your chance of spotting Mount Everest, our itinerary provides four opportunities to witness its beauty; at least one should offer a clear view.

    Furthermore, before heading to Mount Everest, keeping a positive mindset and appreciating the diverse beauty of Tibet, not solely focused on Mount Everest, is important. Even if you miss seeing Mount Everest, the surrounding breathtaking natural scenery and unique plateau landscapes will still captivate you. Missing a sunset may lead to a stunning sunrise. The journey to Mount Everest is about more than just the mountain itself; it's an adventure embracing natural marvels and the mesmerizing plateau scenery.

  • 7. How about the road condition to Mount Mount and Lake Namtso?

    The road conditions for this tour are generally good. The route from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp follows the well-known Sino-Nepal Friendship Highway, fully paved with asphalt, providing a smooth journey. Even the last 90 kilometers to Everest Base Camp have been recently upgraded with smooth pavement, eliminating any concerns about rough roads.

    However, the final stretch of the road from Lhasa to Lake Namtso passes through mountainous areas where heavy snow during winter might block some sections. Nonetheless, the majority of the route consists of well-maintained paved roads.

  • 8. How about the accommodation along the route from Lhasa to Mount Everest?

    In cities like Lhasa and Shigatse, there's a range of accommodation options available, from luxurious hotels to budget-friendly guesthouses. You can choose based on your budget and preferences.

    However, at Everest Base Camp, the only lodging option is the tent guesthouse, which provides basic accommodation with relatively simple facilities, often consisting of several beds in one tent.

    During winter, the tent guesthouses at Everest Base Camp might close, necessitating accommodation in places like Tashi Dzom Town or Basong Village.

  • 9. What to pack for traveling to Mount Everest and Lake Namtso in Tibet?

    1)Clothing:Upper garments can include thick underwear (or thermal underwear), a sweater/fleece, and a thick down jacket (thick winter jacket). Lower wear can consist of windproof pants and warm thermal leggings. Footwear can be non-slip sports shoes or hiking boots. Additionally, scarves, gloves, and hats are essential. Layering clothing is advisable for adjusting to temperature changes.

    2)Personal items:Skincare products like facial cleanser, moisturizer, facial masks, body lotion, lip balm, and sunscreen. Personal hygiene items such as toothpaste, toothbrush, and towels. Shampoo and shower products can be selectively packed based on personal needs. Sunglasses are a must due to Tibet's strong sunlight. Given the long distances between Tibetan attractions, carrying a U-shaped pillow for comfort during long journeys is recommended. Also, prepare a thermal flask to ensure access to hot water anytime.

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

    4)Electronic devices:Bring chargers, power banks, cameras, earphones, or other electronic devices as per personal requirements.

    5)Small amounts of cash and bank cards:Although mobile payment methods are becoming more common in Tibet, there might still be instances in remote areas where cash is needed. It's advisable to carry a small amount of cash and at least one bank card.

  • Tibet is beautiful

    The tour was great! We visited amazing places and could feel the sacred atmosphere in all the temples. The nature is breathtaking with beautiful mountain and lake views.
