Everest Base Camp Trek

Click To Enlarge
Tibetans call it Chomolangma, Nepali Sagarmatha and the rest of the world, Mt. Everest. Whatever the name we give, it is the highest point in the earth and to appreciate it the best place is nowhere but Tibet. Mt. Everest was opened to foreigner years before Tibet and even Nepal was. And due to same reason the early expeditions were all planned from this side of the Everest.

The area is not only of snowcapped mountain but also a great side for local life style of Tibet and the cultural heritage of Himalayan people and to explore these diversities you must do as local people do and that is to walk on foot. Below we have presented two routes for trek to Everest Base camp one from Pang -La to Rongbuk and another from Kharta to Khangsung valley.
TOUR: Tt. 03 (Tingri-Base camp)
The easiest access is to drive from Kathmandu to Tingri or Shegar and trek from there to Rongbuk Monastery and further to Everest Base camp. The whole trekking period can be from 3-4 days to even two weeks and more if you wish to go further from Everest Base camp. But in this tour we will trek from Shegar to Everest Base camp and from Rongbuk we will drive back.

Or if you are short of times, we can drive up to Everest Base camp in a day from Shegar but from Rongbuk Monastery to Base camp is always subject to road condition. But this (Rongbuk- Base camp) is only a distance of 12kms and a walking is always a better idea. For driving to Base camp tour please see our tour NO TEN6 at tour section.

If you wish to stay for 4-5 days in camp we will take our tents, crew and food from Kathmandu but if you only wish to stay one night at Rongbuk driving there we will stay in local lodges or monastery. Even tea house trek is possible in this route but we do not recommend it.

TOUR: Tt 04 (East Everest base camp)
The East Everest basecamp or the Khansung valley is regarded as one of the most remote trekking destination in Tibet. The trekking starts from relatively lower elevation of 3750m. We will drive from Kathmandu or Lhasa to Kharta Villge (3750m) situated at the bank of Arun River or Phung Chu; Or if you have more time to spare we can walk from Shegar to Khaarta within 3-4 days, thus starting our trk from Shegar check point.

The trekking period from Kharta to Kharta is 9-11 days and from Shegar to Shegar is 12-15 days. Although the trekking starting point is only 3750 m the trek in 3-4 days crosses over 5300m pass like Langma La or we have option of crossing Shagu La pass at 4750 at the other route to reach Khansung valey, but 2 more days are required for this route (Shagu La). So the whole trip will be 21 + days and it involves strenious walk of 12-15 days in a remote area where no means of modern amenties are available. You must be well suppported by staffs, equipment and foods either from Lhasa or from Kathmandu. We supply all these from Kathymandu to make sure that you enjoy the trekking and the natural beauty.
