Trip Overview

Getting to the surroundings of Mt Everest is a dream come true for anyone who enjoys a thrilling and challenging adventure. Thousands of tourists from all over the world visit Nepal each year to trek to Everest Base Camp. The Everest base camp from Tibet is another adventure to add to the list, a chance to experience nature at its most beautiful.

A view of the world's most majestic peaks including Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Everest, Mt Makalu, and many others is complimented with views of beautiful lakes and glaciers located just beneath Mt Everest's huge north face. Aside from the primary attraction of Everest Base Camp, you can tour Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, and Rongbuk, four of Tibet's most beautiful cities and towns.

The Everest Base Camp Tour from Tibet is a nine day tour that starts from Kathmandu and concludes in Lhasa, including a visit to the Everest Base Camp. A flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa is the first step of the journey. Attractions to visit include the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street. In Tibet, some of the world's largest Buddhist monasteries such as Sera, Drepung and Tashilungpo were established centuries ago and are still beautifully preserved. A trip to Lhasa would be incomplete without visiting the Potala Palace, the Dalai Lama's former residence. The journey to Gyantse, which passes over Khamba La Pass and Yamdrok Lake on its way to the Gyantse Kumbum monastery, is also equally captivating. Shigatse is noted for its Tashilhumpo Monastery (3900m), from there we will travel to Shegar, Rongbuk and finally to Everest Base Camp.

The Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour showcases art, architecture and handicrafts at the city's monasteries. It transports us back in time and allows us to experience the peace that Buddhist culture promotes. The Lhasa River, a tributary of the Yarlung Zangpo (Brahmaputra) River, also runs through the city's southern section. This river, known to native Tibetans as the "merry blue waves," flows for 315 kilometers through the Nyainqêntanglha Mountains' snow-covered peaks and gorges before emptying into the Yarlung Zangpo River near Qüxü. This natural topography covers a large area with stunning scenery.
The Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour takes you to these notable locations and allows you to experience them up close. You will be exposed to many local people and will get the opportunity to fully see Tibet's gorgeous sights, historical and cultural locations.

After that, you will be taken to your Lhasa accommodation to rest and take it easy for the rest of the day due to Lhasa's high altitude.

Note: You can directly arrive at Lhasa and skip Kathmandu.

Day 2: Lhasa Tour

In the company of a guide, we will spend the day touring different monasteries in Lhasa. One of these is the Sera Monastery, with its whitewashed walls and golden roofs. It is Tibet's best-preserved monastery. After lunch, we will visit Norbulingka, the Dalai Lama's summer house and the Jokhang Temple, Tibet's holiest temple. It is surrounded by Barkor, which is a maze of narrow cobbled streets.

Day: Second day Lhasa Tour

In the morning, we will go to Potala Palace. It is a palace that sits on a hill overlooking Lhasa. It is a magnificent structure that contains the Dalai Lama's private apartments as well as multiple huge state rooms and key chapels. The current Palace was built in the 17th century, however there has been a palace on this site since the 5th or 6th century. We will visit the Drepung Monastery, which was founded in the 14th century, after lunch. With a population of about 10,000 monks, it was formerly the world's largest monastery. The number has now dropped to a few hundred.

Day: Lhasa – Shigatse 

The Tsangpo River runs parallel to our route. We will climb to the top of Khampa La, which stands at 15,700 feet. Below us is Yamdrok Lake and in the distance is Ningdzingzonka, a massive snow peak. After that, we will drive west along the lake to Gyantse. We will visit the famed Pelkor Monastery in Gyantse. Gyantse Kumbum is also part of the Pelkor Chode Monastery. The Kumbum features nine levels, each with its own chapel. It is thought to be the largest of Tibet's three Kumbum. We will arrive at Shigatse after a one-and-a-half-hour trip.

Day 5: Shigatse – Shegar

The tour departs from Shigatse and continues to Shegar (New Tingri). After breakfast, you will go on a sightseeing tour to learn about Tibet's rich cultural heritage. We will travel down the Friendship Highway, which will undoubtedly fascinate you with the breathtaking beauty of the Tibetan plateau. We will also pass through the highest pass, Gyamtso La and will be thrilled by the scenery as well as the countless nomadic herders that pass by.

Day 6: Shegar – Rongbuk – Ebc

In the morning, we will depart Rongbuk for the Everest Base Camp (5,250m/17,220ft). We will take a local bus to Everest base camp. On the route, we will see great mountains like Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft), Shishapangma (8,013m/26,289ft) and of course the magnificent Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), also called in Tibetan as Mt. Chomolungma. Today, we will reach Mt. Everest's base camp, which is one of the primary highlights of our journey. We will walk around the Everest Base Camp for around 16 kilometers round trip. Although the base camp is dry and barren, the view of Everest more than makes up for it. We will return to Shegar after spending some quality time at the base of the world's highest mountain.

Day 7: Shegar – Kerung

Today we will drive to Kerung over the Lulang La (5050m) high pass, from which we can admire the wonderful views of Mt. Xishapagma (8,212m) and Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m).

Day 8: Kerung – Kathmandu
