Travel Tips for the 10-Day Everest Base Camp Trip:

Things You Need to Pack for EBC Tour

Keeping warm and comfortable and traveling light are the top things to keep in mind. Bring you down jacket, thermal underwear, and warm headwear. Besides, sunscreen, sun hat, toiletries, personal medicine (ease mountain sickness, cold relief, diarrhea), some cash are also needed. Our guide will offer you a warm apron to cover your knees.

Accommodation Facilities at EBC

Just play down your expectations! Due to the hostile natural environment and extreme altitude (5200m), the lodging facilities at EBC are downright humble. Only locally-run Tibetan yak tents and Rongbuk Guesthouse are available.

However, the incredible view of the sunrise over the peak of Mt. Everest would make up for all your ordeal. Since there is a shortage of water at EBC, the sanitation of the lodging may be a challenge to westerners. You may consider bringing your own sleeping bag.

What to Eat at EBC?

The Tibetan yak tents or the restaurant of Rongbuk Guesthouse offer very basic food like Instant noodles, Tibetan soup noodles, dried yak meat, pork soup, milk tea, egg fried rice, Tsampa, cabbage with rice, chili potato curry, etc. You may also stock up some bread or light snacks before you leave to EBC from Tingri or Shigatse.

Do I Need to Worry About Getting Altitude Sickness?
