Everest Base Camp

You can see spectacular views of Everest from Rongbuk Monastery, located a few km from the previous site of Everest Base Camp. If you have the time and energy levels the short walk up behind the Monastery gives some of the best views of the mountain.

There is accommodation available at the Rongbuk Monastery Guesthouse. Conditions are very basic, but if the weather is clear you may be lucky enough to catch the unforgettable sunrise over the mountain in the morning. If you prefer not to stay overnight at Rongbuk then there is some slightly more comfortable accommodation available at Shegar, a 2-3 hour drive from Rongbuk.

Please note this area is at very high altitude (5,200m above sea level) and should only be visited by those who are fit and healthy, and fully acclimatised to the thin air.
