Tibet Everest Base Camp Tours | 10 Best Everest Base Camp Tours

Mount Everest, nestled on the border between Nepal and Tibet, known as “Chomolungma” in Tibetan, is an awe-inspiring peak that stands tall at 8,848 meters above sea level. With its title as “the Roof of the World” and “Goddess Mother of the World”, Mount Everest is renowned as the highest mountain on the planet. The summit of this majestic peak is shared by Nepal and Tibet, with the southern part in Nepal and the northern part in Tibet. Adventurous travelers yearning to explore this natural wonder can take a journey to Mount Everest through either Tibet or Nepal, both offering unique and breathtaking experiences.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of the most challenging and dangerous endeavors in the world. It is not recommended for regular travelers. For those who wish to marvel at the breathtaking mountains and awe-inspiring peaks, a visit to the Mount Everest Base Camp (EBC) is a definite must-see. Located at an altitude of 5,150 meters, the EBC offers a spectacular view of Mount Everest. Just 8 kilometers away lies the Rongbuk Monastery, the highest monastery in the world. The monastery offers a perfect vantage point to capture the grandeur of Mount Everest and is a popular spot for photography enthusiasts.

How to Plan a Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour?

Planing a trip to Mount Everest can take at least 7 days, regardless of whether you enter from the Nepal or China Tibet side. You can explore the highlights of Nepal, such as the bustling city of Kathmandu or the serene beauty of Pokhara, or discover the must-visit attractions of Tibet, such as the scenic Yamdrok Lake, the stunning Karola Glacier, the charming second-largest city of Tibet - Shigatse, and the sacred Mount Kailash.
