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.

Dear Mr. To***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
