1. If you want to do this from Lhasa, you will need three documents - (1) visa for China; (2) permit for Tibet and (3) permit for Mt Everest region. 2. You can only get the two permits if you go there as part of a tour. Everest Base camp - is about 24 hours of travel by 4x4 from Lhasa. Well worth doing this regardless- the roads are not in great shape and I would have not enjoyed the drive. The two of us arranged for our own tour. 3. Trip was worth it to me - certainly one of the highlights of my travel. We were there in mid-May. Images / short video clip from the trip: members.virtualtourist.com/m...
