Trip Overview

Trip Overview

Both Everest treks are famous in the world because what matters to us is the Base Camp of Everest, the highest camp for the trekkers. Whether it is the Everest Base Camp Trek from Nepal Side or from Tibet Side, we will get an experience of a lifetime from each of these. Himalayan Waves’ Everest Base Trek from Tibet Side starts in Lhasa. It takes us to the Potala and Norbulingka palaces and to the Roof of the World.

Relaxing in a 4 Wheel Driver, we head off to Shigatse, we step into Tashilhunpo monastery and Phalkot monastery,  we visit Khumbum Stupa, and we cross some of the high passes of Tibet. Above all, it shows us the uninterrupted views of Mt. Everest (8,848 m), including Makalu (8,481 m), Lhotse (8,516 m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m)
