Mt Everest Base Camp

Mt Everest Base Camp

Around 600 kilometres from Lhasa set amongst some of the world’s most starkly beautiful and extreme landscapes is the mighty Mount Everest. Towering to 8,848 metres above sea level, the earth’s highest mountain is an once-in-a-lifetime sight, and there is no better place to view it than base camp. Located under the gaze of its north face, on the Tibet side, the sweeping views of Everest and its massif are unsurpassed. Visit the monks at Rongbuk Monastary before following the gravel track to base camp itself, where you’ll find unobstructed views, nomad tents and the world’s highest post office.
