For tourists planning to spend a night at Mt. Everest Base Camp, August is not as cold as the winter seasons. It should be noted that the visibility at Mt.

Tourists should also note that board and lodging condition at Mt. Everest Base Camp is quite limited due to its high altitude and it is quite faraway from Tingri County or Shigatse City.

For tourists especially interested in the natural view of Mt.
