Tingri to Everest Base Camp Trek Notes

1. How far in advance should I book the Tingri to Everest Base Camp trek tour?

To ensure a smooth journey, it is recommended to book the tour at least 15-20 days before departure.

Of course, booking 1 or 2 months or even earlier will help us apply for necessary travel documents on your behalf and make advance reservations for accommodations.

Additionally, early booking provides the opportunity to enjoy early bird discounts.

The earlier you book, the better prepared you'll be, and you won't be troubled in a rush.

2. What are the necessary travel documents for trekking from Tingri to Everest Base Camp in Tibet?

Before you leave, make sure to get your Chinese Visa and Tibet Travel Permit in advance so you can enter the Tibet Autonomous Region.

Some other local travel documents, like the Alien’s travel permit for visiting areas outside Lhasa, can be obtained upon your arrival in Tibet.

We’ll take care of Tibet Travel Permit, as well as other local travel documents as part of our tour package. Simply follow our guidance, and there’s no need to worry about the process.

3. How to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit and how long can I get my Tibet Permit?

Once you book your Everest Base Camp tour with us, simply provide scanned copies of your Chinese Visa and a valid passport (with at least 6 months of validity).

If you traveling with a work visa, you will need proof of employment in China, and a study visa requires proof of your study in China.

Generally, it takes 7-14 working days to process the Tibet Travel Permit. Once the permit is successfully issued, we will mail it to your address in China 3-5 days before your Tibet trip, ensuring you can smoothly board the train or flight to Tibet.

4. What is the altitude of Everest Base Camp in Tibet? And how to deal with high altitude sickness?

The Everest Base Camp in Tibet sits at an altitude of 5200 meters above sea level, making it one of the highest points in this journey.

For first-time visitors to such high-altitude regions, mild symptoms of altitude sickness, such as dizziness and headaches may occur.

However, there is no need to worry. Our specially designed travel route ensures a gradual acclimatization. You’ll spend 2-3 days exploring Lhasa at an altitude of 3650 meters before moving on to higher altitudes like Shigatse (3800 meters) and Everest Base Camp (5200 meters).

According to our experience, most tourists can adapt well to the increase in altitude through such an itinerary, and severe altitude reactions are rare.

If you experience severe symptoms at the base camp, such as intense headaches or difficulty breathing, use oxygen immediately, inform your guide, and seek medical attention promptly.

If necessary, our guide will assist in transferring you to a lower altitude location, such as Zhaxizong Township or Tingri County.

5. When is the best time to trek from Tingri to Everest Base Camp?

The best time to visit Mount Everest is in Spring (April to early June) and Autumn (September to October) with fine weather, pleasant temperatures, and less rainfall. This means you have more chances to enjoy a clear view of the summit of Mt. Everest during your trip.

Though summer (July to August) is the rainy season in Tibet, it doesn't impact daytime activities as most rainfall occurs at night. Just pay attention to the clouds and fog, which may potentially obstruct the full view of Mount Everest.

Winter is a good time to visit Everest Base Camp,but trekking is not advisable due to the freezing temperatures along the route, especially at night.

6. Where to stay during the tour? How about the living conditions at Everest Base Camp?

In cities like Lhasa and Shigatse, accommodation options range from luxury 5-star to economic 3-star, allowing you to choose based on your budget and preferences.

During the 4-day trek from Tingri to Everest Base Camp, camping at designated campsites is necessary. Upon reaching Everest Base Camp, the only accommodation option is the tent hotel, which offers quite basic lodging with relatively simple facilities. Most of the Tibetan-style tent hotels at Everest Base Camp feature dormitory-style sleeping arrangements.

During the winter season, the tent hotel will close, and accommodations need to be arranged in Zhaxizong Township or Tingri near the base camp.

7. What to wear when visiting Everest Base Camp?

Whenever you go to Everest, you need to prepare warm clothing for cold weather at such a high altitude.

It's advisable to wear outerwear that is easy to put on and take off, allowing you to adjust your clothing according to temperature changes.

For your upper body, consider layering with thick autumn clothing (or thermal underwear), a sweater or fleece, and a thick down jacket or windbreaker. Opt for windproof trousers and warm autumn trousers for the lower body. Choose non-slip sports shoes or hiking boots for your footwear.

Don't forget essentials like a scarf, gloves, and a hat.

8. What to pack for the Everest Base Camp Trek tour?

Besides the clothes to take, here are some more things to prepare for your trip to Everest Base Camp.

Personal Care: Pack your essentials such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, facial cleanser, towels, and other personal toiletries. Since there are no shower facilities at Everest Base Camp, consider bringing wet wipes for convenience.

Skincare: Due to the dry climate in Tibet, pack lip balm, moisturizing cream, and hydrating masks to prevent skin dryness and cracking.

Sun Protection: Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and sunglasses for effective sun protection against the strong UV rays in Tibet.

Additional Necessities: Considering the long distances between attractions in Tibet, bring a U-shaped pillow for a comfortable journey. Also, having a thermal flask ensures you have hot water whenever needed.

Common Medications: Take essential medications like motion sickness pills, gastrointestinal medicine, anti-inflammatory drugs, cold medicine, and other medications for emergencies. Include adhesive bandages and eye drops. (Consult your doctor and carefully follow medical advice when taking medication.)

Electronic Devices: Bring your phone, camera, power bank, and any other necessary electronic devices. If you plan to bring a drone, check with our travel consultant in advance. Tibet operates on a 220V voltage.

Cash and Cards: Alipay and WeChat Pay are widely accepted in major cities like Lhasa and Shigatse. Credit cards can be used in some large hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls in Lhasa. However, in remote areas, cash may still be necessary. It's advisable to carry a small amount of Chinese yuan and at least one bank card with you.

9. Can I use my cell phone at Everest Base Camp? What is the internet access like at Everest Base Camp?

At present, Everest Base Camp has 5G signal coverage, but no WiFi service. Therefore, you can use mobile networks for communication.

However, due to the high altitude, there may be slow network speeds or unstable signals. It's recommended to download the necessary apps in advance.

Don’t forget to inform your family and friends that you may not be able to reply to messages promptly during certain periods to avoid unnecessary concerns.
