Everest Base Camp is one of the popular treks in Tibet and most of the time the trail passes through a plateau over 4300m and crosses over one pass called Nam-la 5300m. So, this trekking route is really difficult one on a high altitude. However, because of the high-altitude, it offers splendid views of the north face of Everest and other snowy mountain peaks around. Tibet Everest base camp trek would be a lifetime for those who want to experience the Tibetan amazing culture, rolling hills, ancient forts, artistic ornate monasteries, centuries old caravan routes, breathtaking scenery and much more. Everest Base Camp trek can be done from April to late October.
Everest Base Camp trekking tour in Tibet involves two days of sightseeing in Lhasa followed by a long drive across the ancient towns of Gyantse and Shigatse en route. The trekking trail begins from the plains of Tingri and swings southward following the Ra-Chu Valley, a region which is used by herders for grazing and their livestock.
After Nepal’s 2015 devastating earthquake the overland Tibet-Nepal border has remained closed at this time. So, the only option to do Everest Base Camp trek is to begin the journey with the flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa and return to Kathmandu from Lhasa. In Lhasa we spend 3 nights, staying right in the center of the old city. It will allow us plenty of time for acclimatization and easy access to the city’s main attractions – the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple. In Lhasa, we will visit the famous Potala palace, residence of the Dalai Lama, Norbulingka, the great Drepung Monastery and the holy Jokhang Temple. Then we walk around the Tibetan market - the bustling Barkhor Bazaar.
Leaving Lhasa we will drive passing through the beautiful Turquoise lake on the way to the historic town of Gyantse with its unique multi-storied Kumbum Stupa. From Gyantse, we make a scenic drive to Shigatse (1.5hrs) through the typical Tibetan countryside. At Shigatse, we walk past the massive Tashilungpo monastery and visit the memorial 'Chorten' of the late Panchen Lama. Then we further make a scenic drive to Rongbuk via Xegar.
