Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour comprises several outstanding elements that combine to give you a memorable trip of a lifetime. The mountains, Tibetan plateaus, pristine lakes, glaciers, Buddhism, religion, monasteries, palaces, and Tibetan people are the elements that give an authentic cultural touch to the natural magnificence of the place.
Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour takes you through some fascinating cities to the Advanced Everest Base Camp, which is also popular as the world’s roof. Being the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, i.e., Mt. Everest at an elevation of 5250 meters, the base camp is a roof of the world. Unlike the route of Everest Base Camp from the Nepal side, we can reach the base camp on the Tibet side through an overland drive. Here, walking is not a challenge, but sustaining the rapid rise in altitude can be a real obstacle. No matter what, the tour is worth it.

When deciding what goes into your bag, it is important to check out the characteristics of the trek as well as the season/month in which you are coming to Nepal. If you are wondering what to pack then here’s our recommended packing list and equipment.
Great Trekking Experience
I did the ABC Trek with them. It was a great trekking experience. We only had 12 days, so we customized their 14-day trip to make it a 12-day trek to Annapurna. The company had everything organized carefully, and the trip was very well executed. Ram, the guide, was very helpful throughout the whole trek. Thank you, Ram.
This Was By Far One Of Best Services
This was by far one of the best services I'd gotten. The trip was super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Sanjib and Ram were both excellent and knowledgeable. We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp in November, and it was by far our best trekking experience. They were also incredibly caring, which is important when you are trekking to high altitudes where you have never been before. They always ask how we feel and always check our pulses. Thank you for caring for us throughout the trek. I highly recommend using Heaven Himalaya for any hikes in Nepal.
Arranged An Amazing Trip to Annapurna
Heaven Himalaya arranged an amazing trip to Annapurna. They were very communicative and always provided prompt responses to our questions. Plus, Ram is an excellent guide. He was always concerned about us. Overall, I am not disappointed about booking the trip with them.
I totally loved the holiday package
I totally loved the holiday package organized by Heaven Himalaya. It was very well executed. The driver, our guide, porters, and other people who are responsible for running the trip were very caring and professional. Thank you for the experience.
Amazing Post-COVID EBC Trek
Thank You for making our post-COVID EBC trek amazing. The guides, porters, and Mr. Ram did a great job from the beginning of our COVID test at a hotel in Kathmandu till our farewell in a restaurant in Thamel. We were at our own pace and never hurried. We felt safe and immensely enjoyed our Nepal vacation. With heaven Himalaya, nothing goes wrong. I highly recommend them to other travelers who will book Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek.
