If you are planning an Everest Base Camp Tour, you will very likely be interested in the question considering the best hotel in EBC. Then what’s the best hotel in EBC and where should you lodge in EBC?
In fact, there are hardly any “real” hotels in EBC for the accommodations in those said hotels in EBC are all not comparable to those in Lhasa or Shigatse because of the harsh climate and environment in EBC. However, accommodations are still available in EBC. Generally, travelers have three choices as for lodging in EBC: 1. camping by themselves; 2. Stay in Tent Guest House in EBC; 3. stay in the Rongbuk Monastery Guesthouse or the Rongbuk Everest Hotel.
Then, which one is the best of the above-said guesthouses and hotel? Of course the Rongbuk Everest Hotel may rank the top for it is at least a “hotel”. It is the highest hotel in the world located 50m north of Rongbuk Monastery. The Hotel runs from April to late October every year. There are double rooms and some triple rooms in the hotel, but the price of the hotel is very high, which can be as much as 480RMB per night per room.
As for the Tent Guest House, they are set up by local Tibetans providing beds and hot water for the tourists. They are much cheaper and usually a tent can be shared by over ten people. These tent guest houses are not available all year round. The Rongbuk Monastery Guesthouse is 8km away from EBC. And the monastery guesthouses are also very poorly accommodated inside, but the rooms are relatively clean and there is even a small restaurant serving noodles, milk and some other food.
Now, are you clear about the best hotel in EBC? I hope you are. Of course, I can’t deny that the Rongbuk Everest Hotel is the best hotel in EBC, but the Tent Guest House and Rongbuk Monastery Guesthouse are also good choices for lodging in EBC. Although they are poorly accommodated, they are warm and cheap and they can make you safe and comfortable.
