Nyingchi Lhasa Everest Base Camp Trip Notes

1. How far in advance should I book the Nyingchi Peach Blossom Festival 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.

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 the Nyingchi Peach Blossom Festival tour with a visit to Everest Base Camp?

First, you need to get a Chinese Visa. With the scanned copy of your Chinese Visa and valid passport, you can proceed to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit.

Additionally, for this overland tour from eastern Tibet to the Everest Base Camp, you’ll need other local travel documents, such as the Alien’s Travel Permit for visiting areas outside Lhasa.

But don’t worry - We’ll handle the application for the Tibet Travel Permit and other necessary 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 this 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 8-day trip from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp 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. Is this possible not to see Mount Everest on this tour? What should I do if it's not visible?

April is one of the best months for a clear view of Mount Everest. However, please understand that because of the high altitude and unpredictable weather, you might not always see the top of Mount Everest in bad weather. But don’t worry. We’ve designed this route that gives you four chances to witness Everest on your way, so you’re likely to catch a good view.

To increase your chances, consider visiting Mount Everest during spring or autumn when the weather is more stable. Feel free to check with our travel experts for the latest weather updates when planning your Everest Base Camp tour in Tibet.

Most importantly, stay positive, relax, and enjoy the journey. Don’t get too hung up on seeing the peak of Mount Everest. Even if you miss it, you’ll still experience amazing natural views and the unique landscapes of the Himalayas.

The overland expedition from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp is more than just about the mountain; it's an adventure into the wonders of the Tibet Plateau.

6. What is the road condition from Nyingchi to Everest Base Camp?

The first section of this tour follows the Lhasa-Nyingchi Expressway, which is a newly built route with excellent road conditions.

The road from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp also boasts one of the finest in the region, mainly following the famous Sino-Nepal Friendships Highway which is fully asphalted.

Even the final stretch of 90 kilometers to Everest Base Camp is now covered with smooth pavement. You don’t need to worry about the bumpy road anymore

7. What to wear for traveling from Nyingchi to 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 Nyingchi Peach Blossom Festival tour with Everest Base Camp?

Besides the clothes to take, here are some more things to prepare for your trip from Nyingchi 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 Lhasa. Credit cards can be used in some large hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls in Lhasa. However, in some small restaurants and shops, cash may still be necessary. It's advisable to carry a small amount of Chinese yuan and at least one bank card with you.
