Tibet Everest Base Camp
Everest Base Camp is made up of two base camps on opposite sides of Mount Everest. The North Base Camp is situated in Tibet at 5,150 metres and the South Base Camp is situated on the Nepalese side at an altitude of 5,364 metres. The north face of Mount Everest is breathtakingly beautiful.
Mount Everest is also called Mt. Qomolangma, which means the ‘Goddess the Third’. Tibetans are forbidden to scale Everest, as the mountain is sacred and integral to their belief systems. Viewing this epic mountain is a once in a lifetime opportunity that can’t be missed when exploring Tibet.
The trip from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp is approximately 600kms, and most tour companies will take a number of days to complete the journey. This also gives you time to acclimate to the altitude. The drive up in the minibus, over and through the mountain ranges is cumbersome and slow. The roads weave and twist their way across the face of the range, slowly building and rising in altitude. When you finally stop at a pass through the mountains, you will catch a glimpse of the mountain. Just a small sliver of the great mountain, but enough for your first viewing.
From your accommodation, you can either trek or be driven to Everest Base Camp site, it’s about 2-3kms. It sure beats a 10-day trek on the Nepalese side!

Everest Base Camp Travel Guide
Tibet Everest Base Camp Accommodation (even with tour companies) is very basic. In the summer, you will camp on site, and in the winter, you will most likely stay in Rongbuk Monastery, nestled between the mountains. Be prepared for extremely cold temperatures in the winter and at night in the summer.
Everest Base Camp is over 5000m above sea level. This means that your body needs to adjust to the low levels of oxygen in the air. Your company will arrange a few days in the capital, Lhasa, before your venture to the mountain. Use this time to take it easy. You also have the option to bring altitude sickness medication and take extra oxygen if required. Take it slow, and drink plenty of water.
