Special Notes and Reminders at EBC (Internet, Hot water, Electricity, Toilet)

Internet Access

There is no internet access at the Tibetan side of EBC but 3G signal is always available, of which China Telecom and China Mobile have the best signal.

Running Hot Water

It’s possible to get hot water from thermos bottles, but there is unfortunately no running hot water or showers at EBC.

Electricity

Normally, there is stable 24 hours electricity supply at Rongbuk guesthouse and tents near EBC. But it is also may be affected by the unexpectable weather in that region, like sudden snow storm in winter, so we advise you to charge your camera while in Shigatse just in case. A headlight or a flashlight is advised in the evening considering the toilet is out of tent.   

Keeping Warm

Yak dung is burned in stoves to keep warm inside the tent guesthouses. Due to the high altitude of EBC it’s frequently cold and the wind is very strong, especially at night. It’s important to bring enough warm clothes to the Base Camp, and one hat is necessary to keep warm of your head, especially your ears.

Medical Supplies

Take your own medicine and additional oxygen bottles with you to EBC. The tour agency provides one oxygen bottle per person, but if it’s enough you can carry your own bottles just in case. Medicine and the additional oxygen are helpful, because many people experience some symptoms of altitude sickness at EBC.

Toilets:

Two very simple toilets like a container are there next to the tents guesthouses area, it’s smelly of squat pits and do not expect any running water either, even no light for evening use. Try to drink less water that night to avoid going to toilet in the chilly midnight.

I want to do tour from Kathmondu, coming from USA. what do you recommand in August 2019? Thanks.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Mr. Mi***, 

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet tour, and I am glad to be at your service. Please kindly let me know your nationality firstly since your tour will be involved with Kailash. If you will enter Tibet from Kathmandu, you must leave 3 working days in Kathmandu for you to apply your China visa there, and also if you would like to visit Kailash for sure, I recommend you fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa to join in a group tour as almost all the group tour start from Lhasa. I recommend you to fly to China from USA then go to Kathmandu after the tour as we can drop off you at the border so you can go Kathmandu by overland. Anyway I will send you more details by email. Best regards.

Dear Ma***, 

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet tour, and I am glad to be at your service. As we do not have group to Guge, but we do have 15days Lhasa to Kailash trekking pilgrim tour on 15th May and 10th June, both dates are available for you to join in. 10th June group tour will come cross the Saga Dawa festival in Kailash on 17th June, so if you can make it that would be great. Your age is quite young, please worry free, and most of our clients were your same age, some are more than 70 years old even did the tour quite well, and 3days pilgrim tour would be no problem. You will leave most of your luggage in hotel, and carry the necessary stuff, and also there are some tea house there providing hot water, simple food and basic shelter for sleeping, but of course please do not expect too high about it. And we will do the outer circle for the pilgrim trekking which will be 54km in total. I will send you more details to your email please check it there. Best regards.
