Yamdroktso Lake
Karola Glacier
Day 6 Shigatse - Tingri - Rongphu - EBC

Tibet has a serious rule about speed-limit. Though from Shigatse to Everest region is only abt 350km or so, the no-more-than-40km/hr regulation, and the many road checks dotted on the way, really slow us down. So be prepared to spend around 10~12hrs on the road including meal time. The upside is the view along the way is superb. Get your camera ready. Also, prepare some snacks with you to bring along.

If it’s summertime (usually May~Oct), we will carry on the last few kilometers to Everest Tent Camp to stay the night; if winter time (usually Nov~Apr), we will stay at Rongbuk Monastery’s guesthouse. Both places have but dorm bed lodging available. Both places you can see the glorious Everest sunset if the weather is good.

Hi,

About the private tour you are interested in, we can’t drive you to Kathmandu overland, since the highway from Zhangmu to Kathmandu has closed.It is mandatory to throughout by air according to the China and Nepal’s government. I’d love to book the flight (Lhasa-Kathmandu) for you if you need. How about this? I arrange your whole trip into 2 parts. One part is in Tibet, and the fixed 8-day group tour is recommended. It’s a better choice for your budget. The other part is in Nepal, the 5-day tour is recommended.

Best wishes,

claire
