Among all the well-known Tibet trekking routes the trek to Everest base camp is among the famous. Trekkers will ascend from Old Tingri at around 14,000 ft to Base Camp at about 18,000 ft over 4 days, passing through incredible high-altitude landscapes. Tony Yang of Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) has organized trekking tours in Tibet for over 10 years and shares important tips for the trail.

  •     The difficulty level of the trek and altitude sickness are concerns for most travelers. With adequate training beforehand even inexperienced trekkers will do just fine; try to stick to a regular exercise plan in the months leading up to the adventure! Upon arrival in Tibet stay well hydrated and get plenty of rest. TCTS will arrange an easy paced sightseeing tour of Lhasa for the first couple days.
  •     Bring well broken in hiking shoes with solid ankle support. This goes for any and all trekking in Tibet. Blisters or an injured ankle can limit travelers’ ability to complete the whole route on foot; vehicle support is provided in case of any accidents or discomfort. Also, pack clothes that can be layered to guard against rapidly changing weather and don’t forget to pack things like sunscreen and lip balm, the sun in the Himalayas is harsh.
  •     The best time for the trip is late April to early May and September to early October with the latter months being the most highly recommended. Visiting other times of the year carries a high chance the Everest will be obscured by clouds.

Visiting Everest and getting in touch with the surrounding Himalayan scenery is a travel dream for countless adventurers around the world. Fortunately, this is a trek challenging enough to leave trekkers feeling accomplished but not so much that it rules out inexperienced trekkers. Some of the best weather for a Tibet trek is only a few short months away, now is the time to start planning an adventure!
