The tent guest houses at Everest Base Camp are a once-in-a-lifetime place to spend the night - in the shadow of Mount Everest. All of the tent guest houses near Everest Base Camp are actually large, single room tents made of yak hair. These yak hair tenements are surprisingly robust and comfortable, as the yak hair can withstand both downpours and strong sunshine. In the tent, you will share accommodations with other guests. The collection of tents dot the area in the middle of Everest Base Camp and Rongbuk Monastery. However, the nomads who own the tents move away each November and come back again in April, so availability depends on the weather and volume of tourists. If the tent village is absent when you arrive, the Rongbuk guest house is a suitable backup.
There are a variety of different tents there and you can choose whichever you prefer, though the service and amenities are almost the same at any of them. All tents will have a stove in the middle to heat the entire room. In front of the beds are simple desks for putting food, drinks, flashlights, etc. They all serve rudimentary food items, such as noodles, pancakes, and fried rice.
Some tent staff can speak simple English but most cannot. However, your guide will assist you with any communication needs that arise.
