For the elderly, it is all depend on their individual health condition, have to check up if got high blood pressure or heart disease in advance. If the physical condition is good, it should be no problem for them to visit EBC.More

  • Whether Chinese or foreign tourists into the Everest, are required to apply the Border Pass, and it is can be applied in Lhasa or Shigatse. Foreign visitors are required to apply the boarder pass through a local travel agency along with the Tibet permit. Chinese tourists can apply in their local police station, free of charge, and can get it during the day, very convenient. The Border Pass also can be applied in Tibet, but the procedure is a bit complicated, for the tourists from mainland China had better apply in their registered permanent residence before travel. While filling in the form, just mentioned Mt. Everest, Tingri Region will do.More
  • The average altitude of Tibet is above 4,000 meters, the altitude of Mt. Everest is 8,833.43 meters. However, for the normal visiting, all the tourists are far viewed at the altitude of 5,200 meters from EBC or the observation deck of Rongphu Monastery.More

  • Mt. Everest attracts many people, and those who visit Tibet, cannot miss it, and even spend the night at EBC. As people know that even in summer, the temperature in the morning and evening are pretty low, even without sleeping bag still can, as each bad seat provides a quilt, if you still feel cold can ask for more. Of course, if your luggage is not too many, and prepared sleeping bag in advance, also can bring your own sleeping bag, to keep yourself warm and clean.More
  • From the viewing platform of Rongphu Monastery or the Base Camp, you may see the peak of Mt. Everest with white clouds lingering between the mountains. Since the specific date to reach to Mt. Everest depends on the physical condition of each tourists, generally you can reach Rongphu Monastery within 2 days: Day 1 Lhasa - Shigatse, Day 2 Shigatse - Rongphu Monastery; but if you wish to rest and adapt to the altitude in low altitude areas such as Lhasa,it can take 2 or 3 more days.More
  • Mt. Everest is famous both in mainland China and overseas. Many friends who come to Tibet want to see its "holy face". In fact, Mt. Everest is available for tour in four seasons, but each season has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, I personally consider April - May & September may be the best season to go to Everest, because there are no too many tourists in the season, the travel cost is relatively cheaper than summer. The view of Mt. Everest is spectacular, with high visibility, and the temperature is not too low.More
