Mt. Everest Photographic Tour

D8 Rongbuk Monastery, Mt. Everest Base Camp, Old Tingri

It is a good time to take photos of Mt. Everest sunrise scenery in Rongbuk Monastery in the morning. But it is a little backlighting. Thus, the sunset scenery of Mt. Everest is highly recommended to you. Then you could choose to hike to Mt. Everest Base Camp from Rongbuk Monastery, or ride a horse there. All the tourists are highly suggested not to shout, or run over there, as Mt. Everest Base Camp is 5300 meters high. The height may cause the High Altitude Sickness.

Mt. Everest Base Camp is about 8 kilometers far. It is the closest place to visit Mt. Everest. Due to protect the fantastic natural environment of Mt. Everest, tourists are only allowed to reach Mt. Everest Base Camp. Lots of people would like to camp there to touch the Mt. Everest as much as possible. You could take photos there as you wish. Afterwards, we will have lunch in Rongbuk Guesthouse, and then go ahead to Old Tingri. There is a viewing deck in Gonggar Town on the way.
