Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp in the North China-side, is located about halfway between Rongbuk Monastery; the actual climbers' Base Camp is at the foot of Rongbuk glacier. Clamber up the small hill festooned with prayer flags for great views of the star attraction, then have your photo taken at the base camp marker, which reads “Mt. Qomolangma Base Camp”. The Chinese indicates that it is 5200 meters above sea level.

It is impossible to drive all the way to Everest Base Camp. All vehicles must stop at the tent camp a few kilometers past Rongpuk Monastery. From here passengers must trek or take a bus to finish the last 4 km. The way up is gentle and the altitude gain is less than 200 m. Along the way you pass scree slopes, jagging ridges, and broad glacier valleys flowing with muddy water. About 1 km uphill from the tent camp, on the left, is a Guru Rinpoche meditation cave. The resident monk will allow you into the cave and tiny chapel.
