Since it was off season we were able to reach base camp in our own vehicle. It was COLD, minus 16 and windy! Luckily we had a beautiful clear day for awesome views and it was everything we had hoped it would be. There is no question 17000 ft without external oxygen is a challenge and worth a short stay....

Up above 5,000 M the scenery is something else - the valley is stunning and the rock formations are absolutely beautiful and immense. Transport will get you to the tent village (where I recommend you stay a night) and from there you have a 3.5km walk up the gravel road to EBC. At the end of May it was very cold... More

This was the whole point of our 16 day trip in China and Tibet was the stay at base camp and it lived up to our expectations which were high by the time we got here. We visited in October 2015 and we were lucky enough to be using the new road built by the Chinese to the base camp... More

If you are in Tibet and you can work it into your itinerary, GO! Yes, its a bit out of the way for a one trick pony, but it's Everest. Despite the cold or rather because of it you'll be best served by going in winter, summer is a crowded nightmare. Views of Everest are awesome and the winter is... More

Just returned from Everest Base camp ( Nepal Side ) and must say that it was an amazing experience. Most people fly into Lukla to start the trek but our team trekked from Shivalaya which is much lower down at approx 1700 M. We trekked for nearly 7 & a half days before reaching Lukla covering approx 20 - 22Km... More

We are struggling whether to visit EBC or not at the beginning as one challenge was we have to stay overnight at 5,800m there and there's only a limited choices of accommodation, either tent or the guest house (both using public toilets and without bathroom) and our guide recommended us to stay in the guest house. We also have to... More

I loved the base camp. The views at sunrise/sunset are absolutely amazing! The overnight stay at the base camp is an adventure in itself, i.e. tents warmed up with yak poop, no showers, low oxygen, limited food...but it's all worth it!

Firstly, you can't actually drive to base camp, you need to take one of the small tourist vans from the tent city. I got caught out by arriving after the cut off time (~7pm to 7.30pm) and had to wait until the next day. When you get there, let the Chinese tourists buzz around for a bit as they tend... More
