News from Shigatse Everest Culture Tourism Investment Development Co., Ltd says that according to the announcement of the Mount Everest Bureau of Dingri County, any units and individuals were prohibited from entering the core area of Mount Everest (above Rongbuk Monastery) since December 5, 2018. Tourists can enjoy the fantastic view of the EBC in Rongbuk Monastery and nearby.

Recently there are more and more new policies to protect the environment of Mount Everest. In the beginning, above Rongbuk Monastery, people can trek 5km further, then 1km further. Now people can only see the view of Mount Everest near Rongbuk Monastery.

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.

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.  

Questions:

1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?  

2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?

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
