Hiking from the lodging area of the Tourists Base Camp to the actual Base Camp is one of the most popular things to do at the area. The views are spectacular there, especially during the sunset and sunrise. The single-way trail is about 4km long, one can finish around 1.5 hours depends on the physical condition.

Watching the Sunrise/Sunset
The sunrise and sunset are a very stunning experience in the Tibetan side of north face Mount Everest resembling a shape of pyramid. The height of the surrounding mountains cause the sun rise more in the northeast given Mount Everest a golden glow on a clear morning. The golden glow can also be seen with the northwesterly sunsets. Of the sunrise and the sunset, sunset view is more frequent to see considering fog and clouds are still very heavy in the early morning. What follows you can see times of sunset and sunrise in different months at EBC.

Watching the Stars
During the night there’s a great opportunity to see the amazing starry sky. On a clear night the stars can be seen very clearly in the sky, because there are fewer atmospheres in the way and less light pollution. For taking pictures of the starry skies you should take your DSLR and tripod with you.

Dear Ms. Pa***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
