TRIP INTRODUCTION

The Everest Base Camp tour departs from Kathmandu on regular basis from April through the end of October. For the rest of the year, the tour operation depends on weather conditions. Since, the weather in Tibet is very harsh, the high passes in the wintertime can be blocked some times because of deep snow. We operate this tour for both individual travelers and small groups.
