Tibet - Trekking to Everest base camps

Stock Photography By Jackie Bourn

There are two ways to climb Everest from Tibet, up the North Ridge route along the Rongbuk Glacier or up the Kangshung face. To get to the two Everest base camps on the Tibet side, you have to take the Friendship Highway that travels from Lhasa to Nepal. Along the way the scenery is stunning and the views from the base camps of Everest are awe inspiring. The lush valley up to the Kangshung face contract with the dry rain shadow valley up to the Rongbuk monastery.
