If you enter Tibet from Kathmandu, you don’t have to apply for the Chinese visa in your home country, while you need to stay at least 3 working days in Kathmandu to get your China Group Visa so that you can enter Tibet.

Also, if you visit Everest, you need to apply for Alien's Travel Permit when you arrive in Shigatse. It takes about 30 mins to get it in Shigatse.

When the best time to visit Everest?

Usually, from April to June and from September to October is the best time to visit Everest from Tibet. The weather is getting warmer, you will not feel cold when you stay at EBC. Also, from April to June and from September to October, there is no rain and the clouds had rolled by, you can get a clear view of Mount Everest Peak. From July to August, Tibet will enter rainy seasons and there are many clouds, you possibly not see the clear Mount Everest Peak during that time.

What pack if you visit Mount Everest?


We all know the mountain. Everest has accumulated snow for many years and EBC has 5100 meters. So whenever you start your Everest Base camp tour, you need to bring warm clothes. In the summer, EBC is not as cold as winter, but you should also wear a warm down jacket because the temperature drops a lot in the evening. We recommend wearing T-shirts, sweaters, thermal jackets, warm pants, and thermal underwear while wearing them. If you travel in winter, thick down jackets are also a must for keeping warm.

Sleeping Bag

Sleeping Bag is necessary to bring if you visit Mount Everest. It can help you keep warm at EBC and keep personal hygiene. The accommodation at EBC is not as good as the accommodations in big cities of Tibet like Lhasa and Shigatse.


Before you start your Everest trip, it’s better to ask your doctor if you can get into the EBC. Also, you need to take enough medicine for the treatment of altitude sickness because it is difficult to find prescription drugs on the Tibetan Plateau. We strongly recommend that you bring a first aid kit with bandages, painkillers, and medications for high altitude sickness, flu, headache or other diseases.
