How To Get to Everest
The best thing a visitor can do here is to go to the Everest Base Camp. Going to the Basecamp includes, you taking a bus from Lhasa to Shigatse.
Then with the help of private transport go to the base camp via Dingri and Rongbuk Monastery.
There are many hotels in Dingri where travelers stay before embarking on their journey to the Everest Base Camp.
Things To Do & See at Mt. Everest
The highest religious temple in the world is the Rongbuk Monastery. Visit it on your way to the Everest Base Camp( eight kilometers away from Rongbuk monastery).
Once you reach the Everest Base Camp which is on the northern side of the mountain, you reach the biggest base camp for mountaineers. The base camps are not just a place to pitch your tents and rest, but when you stay overnight at a camp, then you start enjoying the feel of nearby snowy peaks.
You need to be in sound physical shape to do the climbing( if you suffer from high blood pressure then it is not recommended).
Best Time To Visit
If hiking is seriously your forte, then book your tickets for April, May or June. At this time of the year, there is no rain and minimal cold. And it is also a unique period where the flag like clouds wave above the peak.
Hence giving photographers incredible opportunities to click the Giant’s glory.
It is better to carry extra batteries if you carry your camera with yourself during the trek. But the charge drains faster due to cold. The solar chargers help you charge your devices.
Still, nearly all lodges allow you to charge with an extra tip. Most probably you won’t need an adapter.
