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.

Standing on the entrance of Tashilhunpo,visitors can see the grand buildings with golden roofs and white walls
Though Rongbuk Monastery is not resplendent and magnificent, it is still one of the holiest monasteries in Tibetans’ mind.

You can get up early and enjoy the sunrise of Everest Peak at lodging area if the weather is good. And then, we can drive you to the Everest Base Camp. After sightseeing, we will drive to Gyirong, the border which connects Tibet & Nepal. On the way, tourists can enjoy breathtaking vista of Mt. Shishapangma and the Pekutso Lake. After passing the Ghungtang Lhamo(5236M), we will arrive in Gyirong in late afternoon.
It is nice to watch the sunrise and the sunset at EBC. And if you couldn’t fall asleep at night, it is worthy to enjoy a spectacular starry sky on a clear night.
The best time to travel to Mt. Everest would be May, June, Sep and early Oct. EBC is relatively less windy and clear.

In your inquiry, you mentioned that you are interested in our 13-day Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour, which is a private tour. And you want to do a bike ride. I don’t quite understand. Do you mean you want to ride a bicycle in Lhasa city? Or, during the whole tour? Please advise.

 

Besides, may I know how many people of you would like to have this tour? Because for travelers less than five, we usually suggest them join our group tours to keep the cost down.

 

At last, I need to know when you want to make this tour. Different month, the price is different as well.

Due to Tibet's unique background, apart from a Passport and a Chinese Visa, all foreign tourists allowed to enter Tibet must have Tibet Permits.  For L-Chinese visa, you can apply for it in your home country in advance. For Tibet Permits, we could surely get it for you after your tour booked with us, we need your passport and China visa copies to apply for it from Tibet Travel Bureau before tour starts and get it for you usually within 12 working days. Once I get it, I will mail it to your hotel in a China city. For Nepal visa, you will apply for it when you arrive at Gyirong border.
