Packing List for an EBC Tour

To make your trip to the Everest Base Camp easier and more comfortable you need to follow our checklist to prepare your luggage:

1. Clothing. In Tibet, especially the mountain regions, it could be fairly cold even in the summer, and temperature varies widely from day to night. So some warm coats like down jacket are indispensable. Do not forget a pair of comfortable shoes.

2. A sleeping bag is necessary for the night on the foot of Mount Everest, you can bring your own sleeping bag or rent one from us in Lhasa.

3. Sun protection. On the plateau, solar radiation is quite strong and can damage your skin more than you can imagine, so a pair of sunglasses and sun cream are a must during your trip in Tibet. A hat and long-sleeved clothes can also be helpful.
