Everest Base Camp Trek
1485

Overview

Ever since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay scaled the peak of Mount Everest in 1953, other adventurers have wanted to emulate their feat. Many people nowadays seek the thrill of standing at the top of the world, and we can help you get there. Mosaic Adventure can take you all the way to Everest Base Camp and on a journey through the beautiful Khumbu region and Sagamartha National Park on this epic Everest Base Camp Trek.

What could be more thrilling than following the footsteps of some of the world’s famous climbers?

The Everest Base Camp Trek is certainly a challenge with 11 days of walking high altitudes, rocky tracks and some pretty steep inclines. But, the real achievement is when you reach the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest.

After a breathtaking flight to the mountain town of Lukla, your Everest Base Camp Trek begins. Lukla (2840 meters), is the actual starting point of the Everest base camp trek route. On proceeding further on the trekking trail, you will experience a wide variation of altitude. And, your final stop will be at Kala Patthar, 5545 meters. You will need to bring plenty of SD cards for your camera to snap the million photo opportunities as you trek through the magical Himalayas. With spectacular views of Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kangtega, Ama Dablam and Everest, your camera will seem to be permanently attached to your face.

As the altitude increases, the landscape becomes more remote and you cannot help but wonder how the locals survive in such an environment. But that they do, following age-old traditions and living an uncomplicated life, undisturbed by the hustle and bustle that comes with a modern-day society. It is truly a life like no other!!

The bustling Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar and the gateway to the high Himalayas is an impressive sight not to be missed. The colorful homes and teahouses are strategically perched on the hillside. The approach to Tyangboche Monastery is something that will imprint on your mind for years to come as you gaze out to the ornate monastery amidst the most amazing panoramic mountain backdrop you will have ever set your eyes on.

Upon touring Everest Base Camp, an inevitable sense of achievement will prevail as you sit among some snow-capped giants and rejoice in conquering this famous route. And if that was not enough, we take you to the height of 5545 meters, to the summit of Kala Patthar to witness Mount Everest in all her glory, towering above the other glistening peaks of the Himalayas, giving you memories that will last a lifetime.

Guided by our friendly Sherpas, you’ll grow in strength and confidence by day, and be welcomed and replenished by Nepalese rural hospitality by night until, on the eighth day of your walking journey you’ll have done it – at an altitude of 5364 meters you’ll have reached the world-famous Everest Base Camp where so many famous mountaineers before you have set foot, and be able to witness at the closest possible range the staggering skycap of Mountains.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a challenging trek, but with our Sherpas there to provide full support and any other piece of suggestions you may need, at no point will you feel rushed or discomforted or out of your depth. And besides, that’s what you want – you want the Everest Base Camp Trek to be a challenge. You want to come away from it feeling that you’ve been challenged and risen to that challenge, and specifically that you’ve done something that very few other people in the world have done.

This high altitude Everest Base Camp Trek is a strenuous trek which demands lots of your physical strength and mental endurance. Everest Base Camp Trek is not technically difficult but the increasing altitude poses threat to many trekkers who do not spend enough time for acclimatization. Also, the wind chills and the frequent weather change may add to the EBC trek difficulty.

But, with the proper packing for the Everest Base Camp trek and physical preparation for EBC, you can easily overcome this trekking venture.

To join this amazing venture in the Khumbu region, the most preferred time is autumn (late September, October, November) and Spring ( March, April, May). These months have quite stable weather condition in the mountains with amazing views and bearable temperatures even in the morning and night.

You can lengthen or reduce the number of trekking days from these itineraries.

When is the Best Season to do Everest Base Camp Trek? Can I Trek to EBC During Off-trekking Seasons?

Autumn (late September, October, November) and Spring (March, April, May, till mid June) season are the best time for Everest Base Camp Trek and any other treks in Nepal. These seasons have the mild temperature, good weather, clear mountain views, and the crisp surrounding that attracts a lot of trekkers.But, if you could not trek in these months, you can join the trek in off-seasons as well. Summer/ monsoon (mid June onward, July, August, till mid September ) and winter ( December, January, February) are the off-trekking seasons. These months may have hostile weather and temperature than in peak months.If you are planning to trek in Winter then you must come ready to face the cold with temperatures dropping down to minus degrees; about minus 20 or sometime even below that. While if you plan to trek in summer you must be prepared with proper rain gears.

What Permits Do I Need for This Trek?

Trekking to Everest base camp means you will be walking inside Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu region. So, to walk through the region you need to obtain two different permits. They are Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit (USD 20 per person) and Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit (USD 30 per person).While if you are trekking from Jiri, you need an additional permit- Gauri Shankar Conservation Area Permit (USD 30 per person). When you book one of our tours, these permits are included and arranged by us so you don’t have to worry about it.

What is The Total Cost of Everest Base Camp Trek?

Our Everest base camp trek trip packages range from USD 1230- USD 1700 depending on the itinerary you choose. This amount covers the cost of your food, accommodation, the charge of guides and porters, permits cost, cost of transportation, and so on.

How Fit do I have to Be?

The Everest Base Camp trek is considered to be a relatively strenuous trekking route in Nepal, but, that does not mean you require any previous trekking or mountaineering experience.You are attempting to reach the base camp, not climbing to the summit itself, it is not required that you have any technical experience, only that you be in the good physical condition and are able to walk for four to six hours per day over hilly terrain with a light backpack.If you are not an experienced trekker or do not exercise regularly, we recommend that you embark on a training program well in advance of commencing this trip. You will be given plenty of time to rest throughout the trek and the pace will be slow to help you acclimatize safely to the increasing elevation.

What is the Level of Accommodation Like?

In Kathmandu, your accommodation will usually include an attached bathroom and have facilities such as air conditioning, reception and dining services. The level of accommodation is generally Nepalese 3 star and is comfortable and clean.If you require an upgrade of accommodation in Kathmandu, there are many 4-star and 5-star options at an extra cost. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require an upgrade.Once you start your trek, you will be staying in “Teahouses.” Accommodation is limited, especially the higher you get, so your room may vary from a private single/double room to a bed in a dormitory. Bed mattresses are usually firm, not sprung mattresses that you may be used to at home.The accommodation is very basic and there will usually be shared shower and toilet facilities. There is a communal dining hall in all teahouses offering limited meal choices. Although basic, the teahouses are clean and are a welcome, friendly and warm resting place after a day trekking

What Type of Food do I Get on the Trekking Trials?

You will find many tea houses on the trekking trail that offer a wide option for foods and drinks. From typical Nepali dishes to the continental dishes, you can find all type of food and drinks in the trekking trail.You can enjoy popular Nepali dish- Dal Bhat with season vegetable and pickle. Or, you can enjoy pizza, momo, noodles, macaroni, sizzler, sandwich, burger, and so on.Along with this, you can enjoy a different type of coffee, fruit juice, and alcoholic drinks. But since this is a high altitude trek you need to maintain body hydration. So, avoiding alcoholic drinks is a good idea.

Is Enough Drinking Water Available? How Many Liters of Water Shall We Carry in Our Day Pack?

We ask that all our customers bring water purification tablets and a water bottle with them. (they can be bought in Kathmandu if forgotten) Mosaic Adventure supports responsible tourism so we do not encourage trekkers to buy bottled water when in the Himalayan region, although it is available, there is no proper disposal system for plastic bottles and we would like to keep our mountains clean and trash free.There will be plenty of water available along the way to fill your bottles and most brands of purification tablets take just 30 minutes before you can drink your water. You can carry water bottle of about 1.5 liters and fill it as you go, no need to carry water for whole day. We recommend that you drink a minimum of 3 to 4 liters of water per day whilst on your trek.

Can we Take Showers During the Trek?

Showers are available at the teahouses. They will usually be shared bathrooms in most teahouses, especially the higher up you go. You will have to pay for a hot water shower per person. The higher you are, the colder it gets and you may find that you do not want to shower as often so you can wait just a few days until your descent.If you do not want to take a shower then you can use wet wipes to clean your body. You may not find them during the trek or, if you find any they may cost higher. So it is good to buy them at Kathmandu.

Do I Need to Take Walking Poles?

Walking poles are not compulsory but can be useful especially on the way down. Poles help you balance on the way down and take the strain off of your legs (quad muscles) on some of the steep climbs. You can buy poles in Kathmandu and they easily collapse so you can attach them to your backpack when they are not needed.

Can I Buy any Equipment in Kathmandu Before the Start of the Trip?

There are plenty of trekking shops in Kathmandu selling equipment inexpensively compared to the prices you would normally pay at home, although, the quality of these products cannot always be guaranteed.If you do not want to take the risk, we recommend you buy major items such as trekking shoes, before you arrive in Nepal. It is also recommended you buy your shoes well in advance of your trek so you can “break them in” and avoid blisters during your trip.If you want to manage the trek cost, you can even rent some gears after paying some deposit amount.Or, if you happen to forget some gears at Kathmandu, you can buy them at Namche Bazaar as well.

Can I Recharge my iPod, Batteries, Cameras, etc… While on the Mountain Tour?

Yes, you can, in the teahouses. Please remember that plugs might be different than at home so don’t forget to bring adapters with you or buy them in Kathmandu before the trip. You will have to pay for the use of electricity to recharge your electrical items, usually at a cost of $3-5 US per hour.

How Much Money Per Day do You Think I will Need? What Currency Should I Take?

The local currency in Nepal is rupees. We recommend you bring US dollars with you to Nepal and exchange them here as this is easily done and is a widely accepted currency.Although you may get a lesser rate on travelers cheques, we suggest you carry a mixture of both depending on your needs. The amount of money you will need on a daily basis depends on your spending habits.A guide would be $15 per day for extra drinks and bar bill during your trek and $20 per day to cover lunch/dinner whilst in Kathmandu.As for currency, it is a better option to carry enough Nepali currency. Almost all teahouses prefer Nepali cash. Also, you will not get ATMs in places higher than Namche Bazaar in the trek. So, carry enough cash in hand.

What do I Have to Carry with Me During the Trek?

You will need to carry a reasonable sized daypack, big enough to carry personal items, water, camera, snacks, sunscreen, a hat, a fleece jacket and gloves for higher altitudes.For the trek to Everest Base Camp, the most important things you should carry in your daypack are personal items that you need for the day.And, do not forget to pack enough snacks and a water bottle. Do not forget to include lip balms, moisturizers, sanitizers, and sunscreen.While you carry the light pack, your porters will carry the bigger packs with your clothes, etc. They will carry packs up to 20kg. (10kg of each participants)

What if I Get Sick While on Trek?

It depends on the nature of the sickness. Usually, if you become sick, you will descend to a lower altitude with the help and support of the guide or porter. If you are seriously ill, we will arrange an emergency helicopter evacuation service.Our guide will take immediate action according to the situation. Please make sure you arrange travel insurance that covers you for a medical evacuation service and trekking at high altitudes.Do not take altitude sickness lightly. It can be fatal! Please familiarize yourself with the symptoms of altitude sickness before your trek. Do not ignore even the mildest of symptoms, inform your guide immediately.Our guides carry basic medicine and first aid equipment including simple painkillers, altitude sickness tablets, bandages, balm for muscle ache and medication to treat diarrhea and vomiting.Our experienced guides will walk with you throughout the trek. If anything happens to you they will take care of you. If, by any chance, you fall sick there are health posts in Namche Bazaar, Lobuche where you can get medical services.

How do I Know if I Suffer from Altitude Sickness?

While walking to a new destination with the increasing altitudes you are prone to altitude sickness. You may notice some symptoms like sleeplessness, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, increased heart rate, short breath. If you feel any of these, know that it may be symptoms of altitude sickness.These are the minor symptoms of altitude sickness.

  1. Everest Base Camp Trek
    We are very impressed and pleased with the EBC trek organised by Mosaic Adventure - the process has been very seamless and Raj has been very responsive to our emails, including accommodating to our requests of staying the night at Ramenchap before flying out to Lukla the next morning.Bhumi Amgain's (our guide) professionalism, friendliness and thoughtfulness has been exceptional from start (picking us up at the Kathmandu airport) to end (when we left Lukla to Kathmandu). His advice on renting the duffel bag to prevent our backpacks from being dusty was very thoughtful and we truly appreciated his hospitable touch on providing freshly cut apples and pomegranate after every dinner. As it was just two of us in the group, Bhumi was very patient in letting us walk at our own pace and taking breaks when necessary as well as offering to carry our backpacks on short day hikes to reduce fatigue. Bhumi also demonstrated good knowledge in educating us of the surrounding mountains throughout the EBC trek and also the local sherpa culture or the Nepalese culture in general. A notable incident whereby Bhumi was very helpful was helping to tape up a friend's hiking boots which was coming apart with duct tape to ensure it lasted till the end of the trip.All in all, we would definitely strongly recommend Mosaic Adventure and Bhumi as the guide for any friends who are interested in doing the EBC trek in the future.
  2. Everest Base Camp Trek
    It has been a delight to deal with Mosaic Adventure; we appreciate our very excellent guide. We will recommend your service especially to all my friends and colleagues. Many thanks!
  3. Everest Base Camp Trek
    We had a EBC trek organized by the Mosaic adventure and it was amazing. We were able to organize everything from Italy, getting all the information we needed very quickly. They organized our trip exactly as we wanted and every detail was perfect. The staff (both the ones in the office and the ones who did the trekking with us) were very competent and careful. A great experience!!! For sure when I'll go back to Nepal I'll organize another trek with them!
  4. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Me and my partner had an excellent treking experience with mosiac. We did the two week everest base camp trek and had an absolutely amazing time. Everything about the trip was well organised from the tour of kathmandu before the trek (which took in 4 of the major sites and was extremely informative and fun) to the transport and accommodation throughout the trek. Our treking guide, Pralhad, was really good, always making sure we were okay, he was really patient encouraging us to walk slowly, answering all our questions and he also took good care of us both when we got a little bit sick towards the end of the trip! The accommodation on the trek was basic of course but the places we stayed always seemed pretty nice compared to some of the other places around. Mosaic were very accommodating, for example we had to put the trek date back just a few days before it started and they arranged this immediately with no complaints, answered all our questions throughout and were extremely organised and efficient (every time someone was suposed to collect us from somewhere they were on time with their mosaic sign, friendly and helpful) also they arranged to donate our unwanted treking clothes to a local orphanage for us. Mosiac are a really great company with helpful staff, I would definitely use them again if I had the chance to return to Nepal.
  5. Everest Base Camp Trek
    My wife and I used Mosaic for a Everest Base Camp trek and were incredibly delighted with the Mosaic experience. Our guide was spectacular, the group was small, and there was personalized attention that the larger tour companies cannot provide. I can not recommend this company high enough.
  6. Everest Base Camp Trek
    From start to finish this was an incredible trip! Really impressed. Professionally organised and well run throughout, with all staff always willing to help out and go the extra mile. Excellent standards of accommodation (compared to all other tours spoken to) and a good selection of food options. Brilliant guides leading the way, with friendly porters supporting. The itinerary was exciting without being too strenuous, and the scenery was simply breathtaking every day. I can't recommend Mosaic Adventure highly enough, and would certainly look to use them for future Nepal adventures!
  7. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I have just finished my Everest trekking with Mosaic, is my second time going with Mosaic after our first encounter in 2012.I would like to thank for their good service they maintain in those years, rendering wise travel advice, profesdional gears, warm hospitality etc.I really hope to trek with them the third time in future.
  8. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Everest Base Camp Trek, one of the most amazing things I have done and it was thanks to Raj and his team at Mosaic Travel. Was catered for every step of the way and shown things along the way that was above the requirements of the guys and made it a truly amazing individual experience! One of the best two weeks of my life! Thanks Mosaic!
  9. Everest Base Camp Trek
    If you're looking to do trekking in Nepal then stop looking at other companies because this is the one you want to go with. In the main office, Madhav does an excellent job of planning your trip and making sure everything is to your liking. Even half a world away, he answered all of my emails within 24 hours. He will do everything within his power to make sure your stay in Nepal is nothing short of amazing. On the Everest base camp tour, my guide Rishi was equally impressive. So if you have the opportunity to request a guide, request him. He always made sure we stayed at clean and comfortable teahouses with good food. It was also nice to have someone looking out for signs of altitude sickness and checking up on your health and acclimatization, daily. He also knows all the good places to take pictures and is very knowledgable of the surrounding mountains and wildlife. You should also bring some cards with you and ask Rishi to show you some of his magic tricks. The trek itself is the trip of a lifetime and I can't accurately describe it here, so you should just do it! In Kathmandu, Keshar was a fountain of knowledge. During my city tour he told me everything I wanted to know and more. I got so much more out of the places he took me to with his keen insight. Keshar is a great student of Nepalese history and culture and is very enthusiastic about it. I couldn't have asked for a better city guide. If I ever have the fortune to make it back to Nepal I will certainly be booking my trip with Mosiac Adventure.

  11. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I used Mosaic for the Everest Base Camp Trek and had an amazing experience. They were very professional and responsive before I ever arrived. Everything went smoothly (pick up, accommodation, flights, etc). I had an amazing guide (ask for Pralhad if you can) who was very focused on keeping me happy, safe and comfortable. What sets Mosaic apart from many of the other tour companies that I saw was the level of personal attention that they give to their clients.
  12. Everest Base Camp Trek
    My friend and I (both from Australia) did a two weeks trek to Everest base camp (5365m above sea level) and Kala Pathar (5545m above sea level) through Mosaic Adventure. The company was amazing, probably the best out there (based on quick comparisons with people that we met during the trek). They were also very reasonably priced. They explained to us all expected costs before arrival to Nepal and before we left for the trek. They were absolutely correct and there were no hidden costs or anything. They were extremely helpful as well. One particular example was a flight problem to Lukla. The weather was bad that day and our flight was cancelled due to that. We were asked to come back the next day. This was not the company's fault or anything. My friend and I really didn’t want to spend one more day in Kathmandu and cut one day from our trek. So we enquired about helicopters. Many people in the airport travelling to Lukla were doing the same. We got very expensive quotes for helicopters and so did other westerners. Madhav (Trek Coordinator) knew that we were interested in catching a helicopter but our budget was low. So he made some phone calls and managed to get us on a helicopter for about half of the price that other westerners were paying that day.The Company is also extremely organized and very professional. You get to meet your guide the day before. And they gave us an awesome Kathmandu city tour as well. Unlike other companies that were just trying to sell, this company was actually concerned about us. About our comfort, safety, enjoyment etc. whenever we had some reception in the mountain, Madhav would call our guide and check up on us. He would then talk to us quickly to make sure that we are ok and that we are having fun. As beginners in the trekking world (not very fit and didn’t train before the trek or anything), we felt very safe and comfortable. The company’s support helped us reach our goal/destination successfully.Our mountain guide (Hari) was awesome, really awesome. Best mountain guide ever. He became a good friend of ours. Other mountain guides were not as friendly and as funny as he was. He made us laugh and laugh that we had no problems with altitude sickness or anything. He was very responsible and supervised us really well without us feeling that he was doing that. He gave us the exact amount of freedom that we wanted. Other hikers would finish their trek, get to the tea houses, get changed, have a quick dinner and then go to bed. With us, it was finish the trek, get to the tea houses, get changed, eat dinner, play cards and laugh for a few hours, socialize with our guide and all his awesome mountain friends, then we would go to bed. This socializing exercise and constant laughing really helped in ignoring the lack of oxygen in the air. So overall, our guide was awesome.In conclusion, we loved the company and felt very comfortable and safe with them. We recommend it to everyone. They do have many other tours and treks. And if I am ever planning to go to Nepal again to seek adventure, I would definitely be doing it through Mosaic Adventure.

    I joined Mosaic for Everest Base Camp trek in May 2014. In fact, I joined its Poon Hill Trek in 2012. It was my second time going a trek in Nepal with Mosaic. The tour coordinator, Madhav is helpful and reliable. He responded quickly to our request and tailor made the itinerary to suit our needs and gave professional advice. The tour ran smoothly with the support of the guide, Rishi and the porters, Rhim and Hita. Meeting Madhav and Rishi again is like reunion with old friends. It is a wonderful experience. Thanks.

    The adventure I had was both amazing and challenging. I rushed my body to the limits and also had my eyes opened to the most beautiful sights. I made lifelong friends with other trekkers and shared moments of sickness, happiness and achievement, all with the trust and joy of my excellent guide Pralhad who I will never forget.

    I highly recommend Mozaic.I booked with Mozaic at the last minute, and they helped me with everything. I arrived in Kathmandu a week before my trek and they still offered to pick me up and take me to my accommodation at a different hostel from which they use at no cost. They explained what I would need to buy and where to buy it and what to look at before our Everest Base Camp Tour. We had an amazing guide with us on our trek who seemed to have more patience than any one I know. There was 4 of us on the trek and one of the guys was 62 but our guide Shanker managed to get us all to our daily destinations safely. When I arrived back in Kathmandu I fell really sick and had to go to Hospital, When Moziac heard of this they immediately contacted me and were willing to make arrangements to take me to a good hospital. Further more my Bank stopped my cards working and Mozaic happily offered and lent me money to cover all my costs until I sorted my my bank out. All this based only on trust having no idea if they would see me again. Thank you so Much Rajendra, Madhav and Shanker for making my Trek and time in Nepal amazing. Cant wait to come back one day.
  16. Everest Base Camp Trek
    We went with Mosaic tours in Kathmandu to do the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek in August this year. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is keen on doing the EBC or any other trekking in Nepal. They are reputable, reliable, well priced, trustworthy and most importantly they put our personal safety above all else. All ran smoothly from start to finish. We started our experience with Mosaic Tours the day we arrived in Kathmandu with our guide Pralhad and tour organizer, Madhav. They met us at our hotel in Kathmandu and gave us an in depth run down on everything we needed to know for our upcoming 12 day trek. They lent us down jackets and Sleeping bags (free of charge) which saved us lugging them half way around the world. The morning of the trek, Pralhad meet us again at the hotel and we were off on the most amazing adventure ever! If you can get Pralhad as your guide, we would highly recommend him. He really knows his stuff! He is extremely experienced, kind, understanding (especially appreciated by my wife who was a novice trekker), knowledgeable, good fun… and good at cards! Between Prahlad and our fantastic porter Jetha, we had an awesome experience. When we arrived back at Lukla it was too foggy for planes to fly in, so we ended up having to get a helicopter at our own expense. We were escorted by Pralhad to the spot where we were collected (about 1.5 hour trek) where he dropped us and then trekked back up the mountain to Lukla, which we appreciated SO much. One week after leaving Nepal we noticed our credit card had been charged an EXTRA $1000 USD for the helicopter trip, which we had organized using another company outside of Mosaic. Although the helicopter was arranged completely externally from Mosaic tours, we contacted Madhav and asked if he could help us retrieve our lost funds. Within 2 days Madhav had resolved the issue with the helicopter company for us and had our money refunded!If you are looking to trek in Nepal- Mosaic are awesome, they are the real deal. They are a reliable, safe and a ‘no-stress’ trekking company in Kathmandu, Nepal!! Cheers Madhav, Pralhad and Jetha! ?

    My wife and I recently completed an 11 day Everest Base Camp Trek through Mosaic. We did not know who to use and relied upon Mosaic's high tripadvisor rating. We are so happy that we did. Everything went as planned and our tour guide could not have been better. He was 30 years experienced while other guides we met on the trail were quite young. Our group was just the 2 of us while other groups were 10 to 15 people. Madhov responded quickly to my emails, met us at the airport, and was wonderful to work with. They also provided down jackets and warm sleeping bags which is not common with other tours. Could not offer a higher recommendation. Just be warned that the Everest base camp trek is incredibly difficult and you must be in good shape.

    Everest Base Camp Trek, one of the most amazing things I have done and it was thanks to Raj and his team at Mosaic Travel. Was catered for every step of the way and shown things along the way that was above the requirements of the guys and made it a truly amazing individual experience! One of the best two weeks of my life! Thanks Mosaic!

    We went on Everest Base Camp trek in July from Mosaic Adventure Trek with Gokul who was our trekking guide. He was excellent, helpful and spoke Spanish fluently. Mosaic provided us with very good service. I would recommend Mosaic Adventure Trek Expedition and Gokul to all trekkers.
  20. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Nepal is a beautiful country. It's natural resources in the Himalayas as well as the southern jungles are completely unique. Any person with an adventuresome bone in their body would be thrilled and delighted seeing this country. Mosaic Adventures did an excellent job of providing a first time visitor to Nepal the guidance and framework for experiencing the beauties of the country. My trip was well planned and well managed and everything went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend their services to anyone contemplating visiting Nepal. The trip would be memorable.
  21. Everest Base Camp Trek
    A great trip with some lovely views, interesting guide and good accomodations+food. Unfortunately we didn't get the best view of Mt. Everest but after all it was the monsoon. However, we did get a fantastic view on the way down. A highly recommended organization and a friendly team of people.
