Another driving day towards Everest Base Camp, at Pangla pass [5,250 m], you will see the spectacular Himalayan Range and the glorious peaks of Mt. Makalu [8,463 m], Mt. Lotse [8,516 m], Mt. Everest [8,844 m], Mt. Cho Oyu [8,201 m] and Mt. Shishapama [8,020 m] (from left to right in your view at the pass).
Once you arrived at at E.B.C, you can choose to trek 4 km which takes 2 hours or take the dedicated minibus to the base camp. Enjoy the sunset here. For winter tours, your driver will drive you there as there is no sightseeing bus there.
Then you will visit Rongbuk Monastery, it is the highest monastery in Tibet and is functioning with both monks and nuns. You can visit and see the workings of the monastery.
Note: It is cold and windy in the valley, so we recommend taking a sleeping bag with you. Also, food options are scarce, so be sure to prepare for providing your own meals at Rongbuk.
