Rongbuk Glacier is the main attraction for hiking from Everest Base Camp to Qianjin Camp. It was named one of the six most beautiful glaciers in China by “China National Geographic” magazine. Its biggest feature is its undulating snow peaks, which are white, holy, sharp, and beautiful, leaving people in awe. The glacier has a striking azure blue color, and the distant snow-capped mountains are now green due to spring, radiating with vibrant vitality.

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 relatively smooth. There are several 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 become larger and larger over time. After 5800 meters, you can see the beautiful ice tower forest. There is no need for technical equipment such as mountain boots, crampons, and ice axes 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.
