Trekking route from Everest base camp tent area to advanced base camp

High-altitude trekking route map of the advance camp of Mount Everest Base Camp

Trekking from Everest Base Camp to Everest Advance Camp covers a distance of 15 kilometres, with a total travel distance of approximately 28 kilometres. This route offers the opportunity to witness the stunning Rongbuk Glacier, considered the most beautiful glacier in China. Along the way, there are two camps: C1, situated 5500 meters from the East Rongbuk Glacier, and C2, located 6100 meters from the bifurcation of Zhangzifeng. One advantage of this route is its ability to minimize daily physical exertion, aiding hikers in adapting to the journey.

Highlights of Mount Everest Base Camp High Altitude Hiking

Rongbuk Glacier is the main hiking attraction from Everest Base Camp to Qianjin Camp. It was named one of China’s six most beautiful glaciers by “China National Geographic” magazine. Its notable feature is the undulating snow peaks, white, holy, sharp, and breathtaking. The glacier displays a striking azure blue colour, and the distant snow-capped mountains now exhibit a vibrant green hue in the spring, radiating with vitality. However, the low temperature prevents the complete melting of the ice and snow.

Everest Base Camp High Altitude Trekking is suitable for the crowd

Physical strength is sufficient, there are no steep inclines, and individuals with hiking experience can tackle this climbing route.

Equipment needed for high-altitude trekking at Everest Base Camp

From base camp to advancing camp, all walk on gravel slopes formed by glacier traces. Most of the road sections are smooth. There are steep slopes with a height difference of several tens of meters, with little fluctuations. On the way, before 5800 meters, there will be some small glacier meltwater. During the spring and summer climbing seasons, the glacier melt water will increase over time. After 5800 meters, you can see the beautiful ice tower forest. No technical equipment such as mountain boots, crampons, and ice axes are needed throughout the journey.

Note: The ice towers along the route are stunning, but shooting while moving can disrupt the rhythm and impact performance. Consider taking more shots when descending.
