Although it may take some finagling with the necessary documentation (more info is in our country summary), trekking to the Everest base camp is an incredible opportunity to experience an historically symbolic challenge of the human body and spirit. You can take in the view from here with or without embarking on the last leg of the trip to the summit, a journey that has proved the death of many. The south base camp is more frequently accessed from Kathmandu in Nepal, but the north base camp may be reached via the Friendship Highway on a visit from Lhasa in the north..
Visitors may often stay in a tented camp at the base of the hill, an avenue we suggest, since the 8,850 meter high (29,035 foot) peak of Mount Qomolangma is itself a revelation amongst the stars. For your benefit, we've included a few tour groups that make a stop at the Tibetan side base camp.
