EBC Closure from Dec 2018
Written on 09th January 2019

There is a new policy issued by government at the end of Dec 2018

Due to environmental protection sake, EBC has been closed to visitors and the furthest position visitors can get to is Rongbuk Monastery, this Monastery is 400m away from the EBC tourist tent site.  

So this means visitors can not stay in the tent like before. We suggest to stay in Tingri town instead. Tingri is 100KM and 3hrs drive away from Rongbuk Monastery, and Rongbuk Monastery is 400m away from EBC tent site. Visitors can stop by Rongbuk Monastery and view Everest peak from there. The view from the monastery is like the picture below.
