Then the next challenge was to trek from Rongbuk Monastery to the camping site at Everest Base Camp. On the way to EBC, participants were invited to Tibetan nomads’ tents and experienced their unique way of living by making Tsampa, churning butter tea, and making yak dung fuel, etc. At night, all the organizers and trekkers spent the night inside the cozy tents at EBC and enjoyed campfire party under the stunning starry night.
