09 DAYS EVEREST BASE CAMP EXCURSION
 
The Everest Base Camp from the Tibetan side can be reached from two points.
1. From Shegar
2. From Tingri west. Both these routes meet after some distance. However the first route is generally followed. The distance from Shegar to Rongphuk monastery takes about 6 to 7 hrs by driving while trekking takes 20 to 22 hrs. The complete distance from Shegar to Everest Base Camp is about 68.7 miles (110 km). On the first day it takes about 12 hrs to reach Pangla 17060 ft. (5200m) and then for other 2 days one has to move the valley. On the way there are some villages but food is not available.

Rongphuk monastery is situated at an altitude of 16500 ft (5030m) and at the highest point of the world. The trek passes through the valley of the Rongphuk river and gradually goes up with Everest occupying the southern top at the head of the valley. The ruined monastery was very sacred. The whole of this region was earlier full of wild mammals and birds.
Rongphuk monstery was badly destroyed by the villagers between 1965-1975 themselves during the revolution, as they were so much politically motivated that they themselves smashed it. In the valley
