There are two Everest base camps on opposite sides of Mount Everest, namely South Everest Base Camp in Nepal and North Everest Base Camp in Tibet, southwest China. The best place to view the Mt. Everest is at the EBC in Tibet.The Tibet EBC is located at an altitude of 5,545 metres (18,192 ft) and is used when climbing via the northeast ridge. The North Base Camp has vehicle access (at least in the summer months) through a 100km road branching to the South from the Friendship Highway near Shegar. Climbers typically rest at base camp for several days for acclimatization; to reduce the risks and severity of altitude sickness.
Since 2010, a visit to the North Base Camp in Tibet requires a permit from the Chinese government, on top of the Tibet entry permit required to visit Tibet itself. At this time such permits must be arranged via Tibet travel agencies as part of a package tour that include hiring a vehicle, driver and guide. The "tourists Base Camp" is located about half-way between Rongbuk Monastery and the actual climbers Base Camp at the foot of Rongbuk glacier.
