    For kids, if they could express clearly, it is ok. For example, if they have a headache, they could tell our tour guide, and our tour guide will help them lessen the headache. If kids just cry when they are not feeling well, it would be dangerous.

  • Is Mount Everest in Tibet or Nepal?

    Mount Everest is co-owned by China and Nepal. The south part of the mount is located in Nepal, while the north part of mount is located in China. Its summit, with a height of 8848.8 meters, is in China. If you want to admire the summit, the best place is the observation deck in the Everest Base Camp, which is also in China.

    The north part is much steeper than the south part. The cold wave from the north is blocked by the north part of the mount, so it can not reach the south part. That’s why the south part is warmer than the north part. Besides, the density of plants of the south part is also higher.
