Tibet-Everest Advanced Base Camp Trek takes you to the highest base camp in the world with a sightseeing trip in Lhasa. This 18-day-long journey can easily become of the most beautiful trips of your lifetime.
Everest Advanced Base Camp (EABC) at 6,340m is the highest base camp in the world while Tibet with its ancient Buddhist culture and high Himalayan landscapes is truly the roof of the world.
Our trip begins in Lhasa at 3,650m. We spend two days in Lhasa visiting historical landmarks like the Potala Palace,Norbulingka Palace, and Jokhang Temple among many others. These days spent in Lhasa also help us acclimatize to high altitudes.
It is 627km from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp on Tibet’s side through Rongbuk Valley. It takes us seven days to complete this journey by road and on foot. The landmarks along the way are of historic importance and we take our time visiting them. Our first stop is the town of Shigatse. We then move on to Tingri. Then, we get to Cho Oyu Base Camp, Lamna La Pass, Rongbuk Monastery and to Everest Base Camp in the following days. We get to bask in the glory of Mt. Everest’s North face during these and the following days.
We spend the next day at the Everest base camp ( 5,250m) exploring the vicinity which helps us acclimatize as well. It is a stunning location with the mighty Everest towering in front of us, just up the Rongbuk Valley.
Everest Advanced Base Camp is 22 km/12 miles from Everest Base Camp but the altitude gain is 1,310m which is substantial at this altitude.
It takes us four days to reach the Advance base camp trekking along the path of Everest North col summiteers. Our first stop is Japanese camp at 5,460m, then we get to Interim camp at 5,800m, then to Changtse Camp at 5,950m and finally to Everest Advance Base Camp at 6,340m.
You will get as close to Everest as a non-climber ever can at the Everest Advanced Base Camp. We get back to Changtse the same day. We retrace our steps back to Everest Base Camp and drive to Tingri from where we take a private jeep to Kerung then to Kathmandu. It is one of the most scenic roads in the world.
