Mount Everest is a must once in a lifetime visit. Everest Base Camp is the heart of the Qomolangma National Nature Reserve, and has become one of the most popular trekking destions in Tibet, offering the chance to gaze on the magnificent north face of the world's tallest peak - Everest/Qomolangma in Tibetan (8844.43M according to Chinese National Bureau of Surveying and Mapping in 2005). The Tibetan approach provides far better vistas than those on the Nepali side, and access is a lot easier as there is also a road all the way up. The view of Everest is a magnificent which no picture can describe.
It used to be quite difficult to access to this area due to the terrain is mostly broken ice and rock, but now the situation has completely changed since July, 2015, when the the first tarmac road to the Everest Base Camp was finished and come into use.
