Most Common Questions about Tibet Everest Base Camp Trekking
1. What is the best season to do EBC Trek in Tibet?
Answer: The best time to trek from Tingri to EBC includes April to May, early June and Sept to mid Oct. Especially, during April to May and Sept. to mid-Oct, you will enjoy the best visibility in Everest Region. The monsoon season comes in Tibet in mid-June and lasts till the end of August. It’s a time when sudden rain and hail occur intermittently. However, rarely will you see downpour in Tibet for days and weeks.
2. What to pack for EBC trek?
Answer: In fact, the dramatic temperature change between day and night and changeable weather mark the climate of Tibet. Apart from trekking gears like trekking poles, sleeping bag, tents, compass, etc. both water proof trousers and down filled jacket are a must. Besides, the following items are also recommended: lightweight long underwear top, short-sleeved shirts, waterproof breathable jacket & pants, running shoes/hiking boots, socks, gloves, hats, camera, sunglasses, sun-screen, lip balms, sleeping bag, toiletries, some personal medicine (altitude sickness, cold relief, etc.) . Do pay special attention to powerful UV light and strong wind in Tibet. Well, travel light is a great option given the long trek at extreme altitude. If you don’t have a good stamina, do hire yak caravan with your friends.
3. What travel documents are needed for EBC trek?
Answer: Basically, apart from Tibet Travel Permit, you need Alien’s Travel Permit. Our travel consultants will help you get all of the necessary before departure. If you want to challenge yourself to trek to ABC, you need to have trekking permit from Tibet Tourism Bureau as well.
4. Is there an age limit for EBC trek?
Answer: Well, theoretically all physically strong and healthy tourists are qualified for EBC trek. However, for elderly tourists (age above 60), we suggest you choosing the classic Lhasa to EBC tour by tour vehicle. The biggest challenge would be the long trek, thin air and your acclimatization to changeable weather on the plateau.
5. What about the accommodation facilities during EBC trek?
Answer: The first part of the trip, you will stay travel from Lhasa to Shigatse and Tingri. You can spend the night in hotels. From day 1 trek from Tingri, we are expected to camp out in the wilderness. On the day 4, we will arrive in Ronbuk Monastery, you can choose to stay overnight at Rongbuk Monastery guest house or camping site in EBC. Please play down your expectation of hotel facilities and toilet hygiene away from Shigatse, the more remote the place is, the hotel or guesthouse facilities become more basic and even dirtier.
6. Dinning for EBC Trek
Answer: Likewise, from Lhasa to Tingri, we will dine in local restaurants, mostly Tibetan dishes or Chinese food. Then after the trek begins, we will cook ourselves in the wilderness. If you prefer, we can hire a private chef with us. Luckily, our guides also know cooking. Do keep some calorie rich snack and some tea to replenish yourself. Once we reach Rongbuk Monastery, we can dine in guesthouse and even in local-run tent in camping site in EBC.
