Electric Vehicles in EBC Electric Vehicles in EBC

Tourism Authorities in Tibet Autonomous Region of China will introduce environmentally friendly electric vehicles to the Mt. Everest Base Camp (EBC) starting next year.

The local tourism development commission of Dingri County, where the EBC is located, said they have also made a rough plan to gradually ban non-electric vehicles to the camp in the near future.

Tang Wu, the commission's director, said the county has been preparing for implementing the plan for years, and it has launched a trail electric vehicle for one year.

"We will seek proper solutions for the banned vehicles in the county, and make sure there will be a safe parking lot for them," he said, adding that tourists will be transported to the scenic sites in a timely and safe manner.

Mount Everest attracts thousands of tourists every year. The Mount Everest Base Camp received more than 140,000 tourists last year, according to Tang. EBC receives an average of 20,000 vehicles every year, and it is necessary and urgent to start using environmentally friendly electric vehicles.

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ho***,

    Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
