View Everest base camp

For many travelers, the main reason they go to Tibet is to see the amazing view of the famous north face of Mount Everest. You will get a clear view of Mount Everest at Everest base camp in Tibet. I list several great ways to Everest base camp. All you need to do is to pick and choose your favorite ways to Everest base camp.


#1 Trekking to Mount Everest base camp

Trekking to north Everest base camp in Tibet is the very popular itinerary for those travelers who want to view the world’s highest mountain -Mt.Everest. Trekking from Rongbuk Monastery to Everest base camp (8 km) is a classic part of hiking from Tingri to Mount Everest base camp.

The best time to trek to EBC in Tibet is from April to the end of May and from September to November because from July to August, it was a rainy season and not suitable for trekking.

There are two main routes to trek to EBC in Tibet: one is from the village of Baber which often referred to as the "New Tingri” to the Mount Everest base camp going via the villages of Chay, Tashi Dzom, and Basum village. This route usually takes about four days, and you will trek to Everest base camp along the newly paved road. In my view, this is not a good route, because except for the magnificent view of the Himalaya Mountains from Geu La pass, the scenery of Mount Everest and other Himalaya mountains is not very good to see until you get close to Rongbuk Monastery.

The other more interesting route is trekking from old Tingri to EBC. This route is about 70 kilometers and you can complete it in three or four days. There are several small villages along the way. Besides enjoying the beautiful scenery of Mount Everest, you can also get excellent views of Cho Oyu, which is the 6th highest peak in the world, and several other peaks above 6000 meters. It is quite difficult to do trekking at high altitude. You not only need a variety of trek equipment and a tour guide but also cook and live in the field. It will be an unforgettable experience in a lifetime.
