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 2km away from the original EBC tourist tent site. The government will move the tents to be around Rongbuk Monastery---2km backward from the original EBC tent site, and will also copy the Everest Height Monument to fulfill visitor's wish of taking photos. So it is actually not too much affect to visitors, but we need to let you know beforehand. See pictures as follow.
