Standing at 8,844.43 meters above sea level, Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world and also the main peak of the Himalayas. The summit is situated on the border between China and Nepal and its south side belongs to Nepal, while the north side belongs to Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

The shape of the mountain is just like a huge pyramid, which is the most fascinating destination for tourists all over the world. Moreover, traveling at the foot of Mt. Everest symbolizes the limit of self-challenge as Mount Everest enjoys the reputation of the roof of the world with more than 40 high peaks at 7,000 meters above sea level nearby.

You can visit Lhasa, the political and religious center of the Holy Land in Tibet, and enjoy the world-renowned Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple which was built 1,300 years ago, some significant monasteries of Gelug sect, such as Drepung Monastery and Sera Monastery. Of course, the highlight of this tour is Mount Everest, the highest peak on the Earth.

The highly recommended travel seasons of Mount Everest are from April to June and September to December. A bit cold as it is in winter, the weather is fairly ideal for travel since it is the dry season in Tibet. Thus, you can enjoy Mt. Everest with clear weather.
