Tibet is hug countryside from the verdant jungles the arid dry landscapes, clustered in the rain shadow behind the gathering variety of the northern Himalaya, surely makes this land as strange as it was for centuries and it retains the feel of the medieval periods and tinge of Shangri – la.
Trek in Tibet Everest Base Camp gives you enjoyment and satisfactions. Trek from Tingri towards of the massive walk crossing via customary towns and nomads camps with stable sceneries to Tibet Everest Base Camp.
Of the close snow capped peaks, as we head towards Tibet Everest Base Camp via Lamna-la (Pangla-pass) at 5,100m and Rongbuk Monastery. The trek from Old Tingri to Everest BC is another highlight of this great trek and tours, the trail from here is seldom frequented as most of the visitors take the comfort of four wheel drive to the Rongbuk from near Shegar and Old Tingri.
The trek from here follows interesting rural life of the Tibetans as it was for centuries, most of the houses and villages still untouched by modern civilization even though the vehicle passes through these villages quite frequently on the road to Base Camp continuing towards high passes, nomads camps and valleys with the ever present vista of the snow capped mountain before reaching our highest camp of Everest Base Camp at 5,200m, where we have time to explore around to its Everest Base Camp glacier in Tibet side and magnificent view of the nearby peaks including the northern face of Mt. Everest.
