EBC from Tibet 

Everest Base Camp tour, needless to say, is an indispensable of a Tibet tour for tens of thousands of tourists travelling to Tibet. It takes two days to drive one-way about 700 km from Lhasa to the world's highest mountain, Mt. Everest with an elevation of 8,000 meters. It seems to be a long journey, but it is not boring at all for you will be accompanied by beautiful landscapes and famous temples all the way, such as the beautiful Yamdrok Lake that is one of the three holy lakes in Tibet and just like an emerald on the plateau, the Karuola Glaciers lying on the roadside, just before your eyes, the Pelkor Chode Monastery with unique style taking in several factions of Tibetan Buddhism, the famed Tashilhunpo known as the Panchen Lama's seat, the Sakya Monastery reputed as the "Second Dunhuang" for its magic murals, and the world's highest monastery, 5,000 meters Rongbuk Monastery. Of course, the Himalayas stretching thousands of miles will never be kicked out of your Everest Base Camp tour. We usually recommend Everest Base Camp tour taking 6 to 11 days from Lhasa to the Mount Everest. It costs you as low as US$ 700 to get an eyeful of the world's highest mountain.
