Mount Everest is also known as Qomolangma in Tibetan but Sagarmatha in Nepali. It is the world's highest peak at 8,848 meters. To see this world's highest peak with your own eyes is probably the dream of all mountaineers and adventurers. But for general travelers, climbing Mount Everest is a very difficult task, which requires a lot of mountaineering practice and experience accumulation, and the cost of climbing Mount Everest is not low, so if you are not a professional mountaineer, go to the Everest Base Camp (referred to as EBC) to appreciate the Everest is a very good choice.
Mount Everest belongs to the Himalayas, which located on the border between China and Nepal. Two Everest base camps were built respectively on the north and south sides of Mount Everest. The EBC of Nepal is located in Sagamartha National Park, at an elevation of 5,545 meters, and the EBC of Tibet is located in Tingri County of Tibet, China, at an elevation of 5,200 meters.
