According to the latest policy issued by Everest Reserve's Administration, from 24th June, 2019, all of tourists’ vehicles cannot drive to EBC, tourists have to pay RMB 120 per person to take environmental bus from Qomolangma National Nature Preserve to EBC. This new service aims to further balance the tourism development and environmental protection needs of the Everest region.
The environmental bus station is located about 79 kilometers within the north gate of Mount Everest scenic area, and it’s about 20 kilometers far away from the Everest Base Camp. When tourists’ buses or vehicles arrive there, all visitors need to transfer to the 29-seat environmental bus and head to tourist Everest Base Camp. All vehicles run on electricity.
At present, there are 13 environmental buses have been put into use, every bus is equipped with oxygen supply facilities. To minimize the waiting time of tourists, and for the convenience of tourists to take photos of sunrise and sunset of Mt. Everest, each bus runs every 10 minutes from 7am to 9pm. If tourists have special requirements, you can contact the bus station for help any time.
At the bus station, in addition to the tourists parking area, environmental bus transfer area, the management department also set up a medical emergency area, tourists can breathe oxygen and have rest in the bed of tent.

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Sorry we do not have any group tour in Jan or Feb to Kailash as there will be heavy snow and the road will be blocked, and also the area would be closed, and no one do the business there, no hotel, no restaurants there. So from Nov to March we would not send any groups there.
If you would like to do this tour, you must plan it from April to Oct. and at present we have the group tour in next 6th May and 29th May, and we will have more available date in future. if you are interested in joining in this, please kindly let me know. Best regards.
