Trip Details

A rare opportunity to see the so-called "Third Pole." This mountain has been the dream of thousands of people. Drive along the Friendship Highway from Lhasa to Kodari. Enroute traverse across various passes and blue lakes, clear skies, and a fantastic road which leads to the Rongbuk Monastery. This place we set up our tents to spend the entire day in the Mt. Everest Base Camp. A lifetime opportunity to see this majestic mountain from Tibet.

Standing at 8844.43 meters above sea level, Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world, and also the main peak of Himalayas. The summit is situated on the border between China and Nepal, and its south side belongs to Nepal, while the north side belongs to Tibet Autonomous Region of China. The shape of the mountain is just like a huge pyramid, which is the most fascinating destination for tourists all over the world. Moreover, traveling at the foot of Mount Everest symbolizes the limit of self-challenge as Mount Everest enjoys the reputation of the roof of the world with more than 40 high peaks in 7000 meters above sea level nearby.

You can visit Lhasa, the political and religious center of the Holy Land in Tibet and enjoy world-renowned Potala Palace; Jokhang temple, built in 1300 years ago; some significant monasteries of Gelug sect, such as Drepung monastery and Sera monastery; Namtso lake and Yamdrok Lake of three holy lakes; the cradle of Tibetan civilizationβ€”Shannan; and Shigatse. Of course, the highlight of this tour is Mount Everest, the highest peak on the summit of the Earth.

Forget about tedious and complex travel preparations, we offer one-stop service for your EBC Expedition such as travel documents, flight and hotel booking, and shuttle service, etc. especially useful for the long journey between Nepal, Tibet, and China. All the cost is transparent.

Triumph Expeditions boasts the widest spectrum of EBC travel in both Tibet and Nepal. From thrilling EBC trek to Everest photography, Motoring to EBC and family tour to EBC, and even climbing Mount Everest, etc. you have plenty of options.
