Generally, there are two ways to travel to Everest Base Camp (EBC): from China mainland and from Nepal. And if you choose to get to EBC from China mainland, you will pass Lhasa, Shigatse, Tingri, Rongbuk Monastery and finally EBC; then, how to get to Everest Base Camp (EBC) from Nepal?
Generally speaking, if you are in Nepal and you want to get to EBC, you should drive to Nepal-tibet border (Kodari) and it takes about 5 hours’ drive from Kathmandu to the border with tibet due to the not good road condition. After being at the border, you can pass the Friendship Bridge and meet your tour guide arranged by the travel agency (foreign travelers must be organized by qualified travel agency and accompanied by tour guides when traveling in tibet). Then your tour guide will assist you handling certain procedures considering requested permits, certificates and some other documents. After this, you will pass Zhangmu and Nylam, and you can spend the night at either of the two places. The next day, you will drive along the Sino-Nepal Highway leading to old Tingri. Then, drive to Rongbuk. There is about 70km bumpy road from old Tingri to Rongbuk passing Rachu, Lamar La and Chugorong with wild grasslands, rapid rivers and high mountains being along the way, and it would take some time driving there. Rongbuk is quite close to EBC, and you can drive or trek to EBC as you like. It takes around half an hour to drive to EBC and 1.5 to 2 hours trekking there.
