Everest, with experience of taking photos during sunrise and sunset.
Recommended Groups: Suitable for most groups, though highly recommended for youths, couples and students. Great for those with limited time for travelling but interested in experiencing the “Roof of the World”.
Conditions: The tour pace is tight, as it allows you to see many attractions within a limited time. As you will only have 2-3 days to adapt to the high altitude before heading towards Mt. Everest, a relatively high level of fitness is required and we recommend some previous high altitude travelling experience. Expect ascents and descents of up to about 1,000 meters per day. Activites at Mt. Everest base camp is around 5200m above sea level. (Many of our customers will add an extra day outskirts tour of Lhasa or stay one more night in Gyantse to allow enough time for high altitude adjusting. )
Best time: Between April, May and June is the best time to visit Mt. Everest, as you are more likely to have the best view of Mt. Everest. Avoid July and August as they are simultaneously the peak season and rainy season. Roads might be closed during winter time and rainy season. It may be too cold to travel to Mt. Everest from October to March.
