The arrangement route is nice, with 3 days at Lhasa for acclimatization. Both the tour guide Lobsang and driver Paksang were excellent in service, helping the visitor with smile, good advice, good information sharing, always provide helping hand when needed. I can see that they

Response from Beatrice X, General Manager at 8 Days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Mt Everest Group Tour
Responded 28 Oct 2019
Dear user, Thank you for your feedback. Yes, you are right, there're a few kilometers distance between the old Everest Base Camp and the new Everest Base Camp. For the old one, it's actually an empty flat land surrounded by mountains. Now, at the new Everest Base Camp, tourists can still have a very clear view of the summit of Mt.Everest. About the location change of the Base Camp, it's the government's policy. As a local Tibet travel agency, we have no choice but to follow. Hope for your understanding! About the toilet, there's no flushing system. At the highest place in the world, water is extremely precious here. It's just for human consumption. However, we will submit your suggestion to the related departments and try to promote this improvement. Thanks again for your consideration. All the best,

My time was limited and this tour covered off the key things I wanted to see in Tibet (although I'd've liked to walk round Mt Kailash and visit Namtso lake too; but I'm very glad I did it and both Lobsang and namgyal Dolkar were excellent guides.
