The trails of Tingri to Everest Base Camp Trek traverse along the centuries old nomadic territories, fortified villages, alpine valleys, nomadic settlements, barley fields and succession of glaciated mountain passes. South Tibet unveils its rugged beauty in all its glory as you proceed from Tingri to the Everest base Camp at 5200m. But before you head off high into the wilderness of the Tibetan highlands, you shall be expertly guided to the exquisite sights around Lhasa, Gyantse and Shigatse.

A seemingly infinite series of broad ridge-top paths and alpine meadows leads to Lamna-La pass at 5150m overlooking splendid panorama. You can explore rarely-visited areas amid glacier-carved environment. As you near Rongbuk at 5000m, the trek gets more adventurous. The mere thought of Everest Base Camp nestled just a few kilometers away at Rongbuk is enough to heighten any trekker’s adventurous spirit. You are sure to get mesmerized by the surreally sculpted Rongbuk glaciers, on our way up to the Everest Base Camp.
