Shigatse, the second largest city next to Lhasa in Tibet, is home to world’s highest mountains, a unique land loaded with infinite opportunity for adventure. Compared with south Everest Base Camp(5364m) in Nepal, north Everest Base Camp(5200m) in Tibet promises grander panoramic view Mt. Everest (8844.43m).

On the way to EBC, tourists will get amazed by the mind-blowing scenery of Himalayan range. You literally find it hard to stop pressing your shutter button not to document distinct Tibetan culture and natural wonders at extreme altitude.

Let’s recall the sweet memory of 23rd group members of June who wisely chose the most classic 10-day Tibet tour package of Lhasa, Namtso and EBC.
