On my trip to Tibet, we completed the hike to Mt. Everest (Mt. Qomolangma) Base camp, and stayed the night in a tent at the hike starting point, what i called tourist base camp. The hike lasted maybe an hour to an hour and half, and wasn’t too stressful, though we had our full bags with us which made it harder than it should have been. We also had the option of taking a horse and cart to the base camp for about 50rmb per person, but i think the hike was a lot more memorable. We read that it was possible to stay at the actual base camp, but when we got there their was no tents set up for rent. I would attribute this due to the fact that it was early October, thus past the peak season. The photo is a panoramic i took combining 7 (handheld) vertical shots using my 30D and Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. Click the photo for a larger version.
