Das ist eine fantastische Reise von Tibet. Ich vergesse nicht. Trotz Höhenkrankheit und eine lange Busfahrt von 2 Tagen, machte ich es zum Mt. Qomolangma Base Camp von 5200m.Nicht, was ich erwartet hatte. Erste Station war ein kleiner Parkplatz mit Händler verkaufen Tibetan Schmuck und Artefakte. Ein paar kleine Zelte serviert wie Hotels und Restaurants in der Nähe. Die Mini-Bust fuhr uns bis zu dem Denkmal mit Blick auf Basis in der Ferne .Trotz der Kälte Kargheit und der Lage, die Aussicht von Everest auf dem Weg war herrlich! Der Weg gewesen wäre wenn Sie litt zu anstrengenden Höhe.

Und zu guter Letzt, besuchten wir den Everest Base Camp (Tibet Seite) am 1. Mai 2016.

Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und wundervolle Erfahrung, vor allem Everest für das erste Mal in Sunrise.

EBC ist über mehr als 3000 Meter hoch. Wir sind nicht Kletterer noch Bergsteiger, mit Alter über 40 Jahren und von der Tropic Land.

Mit allen die perfekte Kombination, die Höhenlage Krankheit ist wirklich ein großes Problem für uns ... also da 6 Monat vor der Reise, die wir machen einige auszuführen als Zubereitungen wie Schwimmen, treatmill, Joggen und Yoga.
Und es funktioniert!!

Wir teilen konnten einige Tipps :
- wir kamen Anfang Mai und es war ca. -3 Grad Celsius am Morgen und 14 in der Nacht am EBC ...

- Aufenthalt im Zelt am EBC, denn es ist im Besitz der Tibetan Haben.
Die Tibetan Leute sind schön, warm, vertrauten und kindhearted. Von dort haben Sie Tiefe Erfahrung der lokalen.

- machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, wenn Sie nicht über die richtige Schlafsack, weil das Zelt anbieten, da viele Decke weil man braucht.

- sie bieten auch die Yak Decke, und es ist sehr warm.

- wenn wahrscheinliche, bringen Sie nur Dinge, die Sie EBC auf dem kleinen Tasche. Da Sie nur eine Nacht dort.

- Essen auf Magenschmerzen richtig zu vermeiden.

- wenn man nicht essen kann lokalen Essen, bringen Sie einige High Energy Snack und heiße Schokolade.

- die Aussicht auf dem Weg zu EBC wirklich spektakulär. Bereiten Sie sich also die Batterie Ihrer Kamera. Bringen Sie extra, wenn hierherkommen. auch Ihre Ausdauer und bereiten Sie sich darauf vor (machen Sie sich nicht einschlafen).

Für uns ... wir glauben nun, dass sehen Everest ist wahrscheinliche, selbst wenn Sie nicht ein Kletterer oder Mountaineer ...

Zu dieser Zeit, denn wir stehen in front of the North Face mit Gigantischen Everest danken wir dem Herrn Jesus und schließlich konnten wir sagen "Everest ... wir sehen Sie!"

Also, wenn man kann sehen, dass es ... Gehen Sie!

THANK YOU very, very, much for all your help and assistance for our Tibet tour. Without you I may not have managed without more tears. The tour was an amazing adventure to say the least and a trip neither Grace nor I will ever forget. Lobsang was the BEST. thank you for him too. He went out of his way to make sure we were all happy. A hard group to please! He is such a beautiful person. I hope you meet him one day. I seem to dream of Tibet every night. THANK YOU Amy also for the contacts places to go in Chengdu. A beautiful experience. Despite the typhoon in Hong Kong we did eventually get home safely. Lots of love to you : ) : )

Dear David,  
This 8 days tour in Tibet is really incredible and unforgettable. Organization of this tour has been perfect and I was very lucky to join a group with a funny young Chinese lady and 4 very pleasant Germans. it is the ideal size of a group for a good We have all really appreciate our guide, Tashi Peida. For his deep knowledge of the Tibetan civilization and religion. his very good English level and above all, his very pleasant company and his permanent smile. He is more than a guide: a friend The timing has been well managed by Taishi to avoid loss of time on road and to arrive on the Everest tent camp in time to enjoy the incredible view of Qomolangma before the sunset. Accommodation is 3 hotels has been perfect everywhere. The only negative point is that we have understood that our driver didn't have the proper licence to drive our minibus. This is the reason why we had a second driver to go through some check points  Regarding your personal service, David. let me give you the same rating than the level of my worry at the beginning of the preparation of this tour: ) : ) Thanks a lot for your patience and your efficiency to obtain my Tibet Visa and a train ticket at the last minute. Great job. I only regret not to have had the pleasure to meet you in Lhasa. Anyhow, take good care my dear friend!

Wenn Sie Reisennachtibet.de Reiseleiter Pincuo mit mit, da man hier so viel Geschichte und lernen Sie abdecken kann besuchen, die Sie nicht alleine unterwegs zu erkunden. Der Palast wurde zuerst in 641 erbaut und umgebaut von Fifth Dalai Lama im 17. Jahrhundert, ist ein wahres Modell der tibetanischen Architektur mit 13 Etagen über 1.000 Zimmer. Sie sehen einige der Gräber der vergangenen Dalai Lama und viele Kammern. Der Aufstieg zum Palace ist unglaublich und landschaftlich schön, aber etwas anstrengend wegen der hohen Höhenlage. Es werden ca. 2-3 Stunden zum erkunden der gesamten Palace Complex. Verpassen Sie nicht das dies eine einmalige Gelegenheit, Potala Palast wenn Sie je Lhasa besuchen!
