Activity : Lhasa and Everest Base Camp Tour
Mount Everest visit is dream of many travelers. Most travelers only stay around 30 minutes at Mt. Everest Base Camp to take some photos and admire the majestic mountain. Although it is a long and tiring trip from Shigatse, those who make it (when it is clear enough to see the summit) say it is well worthwhile.
Although Mount Everest is attractive, and to see it closely is every traveler's dream, the trip is not suitable for the faint-hearted. Altitude sickness is the biggest trouble, and almost everyone is affected at Mt. Everest Base Camp, at altitude 5,200 meters.
Travel to Mount Everest is relatively expensive. Some travelers prefer to join a group to share the price. But it is better to take a private tour, so that you will be cared for individually by a private guide. Any small health problem may become serious quickly at such altitudes.
