Inside, you’ll encounter a statue of Buddha Sakyamuni at the age of twelve, while outside, pilgrims prostrate themselves in devotion.

Everest Base Camp Accommodation FAQs

1. What is the accommodation like at Everest Base Camp?

  • The primary accommodation option at Everest Base Camp is a tent camp. Typically, 8-12 people share a tent, and while they are clean, it’s important to note that these camps have limited facilities and food options. Do not expect the same level of amenities and services as urban hotels.

2. What happens during the colder months, like October to April?

  • During the colder months when extreme cold weather prevails, the tent camp may be removed. In such cases, visitors will stay overnight in the monastery guesthouse. It’s essential to be prepared for these weather conditions.

3. How should I prepare for the high altitude and cold weather at Everest Base Camp?

  • Given the high altitude, it’s crucial to take precautions. Drink plenty of water to reduce altitude sickness symptoms. Additionally, due to the cold weather, be sure to keep warm. In the summer nights, the average temperature ranges from 0-8 ℃. You can consider renting a down jacket, which usually costs around RMB 100 per day (please note that prices may vary). This will help you stay warm and comfortable during your stay.

Altitude Sickness and Preparation FAQs

1. Do I need to worry about getting altitude sickness?

  • No need to worry if you’re physically fit and don’t have respiratory or cardiovascular issues. During your journey, our Tibetan guide will monitor your oxygen saturation level with pulse oximetry and provide oxygen and assistance if needed. However, it’s essential to avoid catching a cold before travelling to Tibet.

2. When should I make my booking for a Tibet trip?

  • It’s advisable to make your reservation as early as possible. Obtaining a Tibet travel permit can take several days, and we also need time to send the issued permit to your address in China. Without this permit, you won’t be able to board the train or flight to Tibet.

3. What should I pack for the Everest Base Camp (EBC) tour?

  • Packing smartly is crucial. Make sure to bring warm clothing, including a down jacket, thermal underwear, and a warm head covering. Additionally, sunscreen, a sun hat, toiletries, personal medicine (for altitude sickness, cold relief, and diarrhoea), and some cash are recommended. Our guide will provide a warm apron to cover your knees.

4. How should I prepare for the long drive from Lhasa to EBC?

  • While the distance from Lhasa to EBC is 720 km, safety is a priority, so there’s a strict speed limit. Tour vehicles typically travel at 80 km/h on the expressway, 70 km/h on the national highway, and 30 km/h on bends. To prepare for the long ride, consider bringing motion sickness medicine or downloading podcasts to keep yourself entertained during the journey.
