Everest Base Camp Advice

Hi all, I'm thinking of a trek to EBC in November but concerned it might be too crowded. Any advice? Is there less crowded alternative to the standard route? Is November a good plan - what's the recommended month? Is it possible to charge cameras & phones at the tea houses, are mosquitos a problem?

Has anybody climbed Mount Bazarduzu, and can anybody tell me a bit more about it?

Going to Yellow Mountain

Our family will be traveling this summer to Shanghai, China; and Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. We plan to visit Yellow Mountain; a railway trip away from Shanghai.

But my question to you all: do you recommend any class 2 hikes/climbs within 100 miles of the above three cities? Thanks in ...
