About Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour (Namtso Lake)
During this "fly in - drive out" arrangement you will visit the Everest Base Camp on the Tibet side . Rongbuk is the highest Buddhist monastery in the world and from here you can walk to Everest Base Camp in around 2 to 3 hours. It is now also possible to drive to the Everest Base Camp by jeep. The total distance is approximately 7 kilometers.
Another highlight during this extensive Tibettour is a visit to the holy, beautiful blue colored Namtso Lake (4700m) that is completely surrounded by impressive mountains.

Transport from border Nepal to Kathmandu by jeep / car
Take primitive circumstances into account for this tour. The rooms along the way are often not too clean and Western toilets are not everywhere. The toilet is often no more than a hole in the ground. There are often no bathrooms / showers and also not always hot water.
It is not possible for us to make reservations in advance, so we may have to search for alternatives on the way. It can also happen that you have to sleep in a room with several people.
In the cities we spend the night in reasonably comfortable hotels.
This arrangement largely takes place at a very high altitude. The chance of altitude sickness is present.
Due to unexpected changes from the Chinese government, Tibet has been closed off immediately or has limited access. Although Himalayan Rock has never encountered this problem, we would like to point out that a trip to Tibet cannot go on at the last minute. In close consultation with you, we will look for an alternative, but for causes beyond our control - and the additional costs - we cannot be held liable. We therefore recommend that you take out appropriate travel and cancellation insurance.
