With growing number of tourists and climbers from around the world coming to Mount Everest, tourism has gradually become a pillar of the local industry, with more and more farmers and herdsmen making their living better off of tourism. 

 
Each year from March to November, the Mt Everest Base Camp, which stands 5,200 meters above sea level, transforms into a seasonal business center, when nomads from Tashizong Village set up their tents here, operating hotels, restaurants, teahouses, and souvenir stalls. At the beginning, there were just two or three families operating businesses. Now, the number has grown to more than 50, becoming a major industry of poverty alleviation in the area.
