The views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku will blow you away as you trek through Sherpa land, meeting the local people in traditional villages.

You will pass through the hillside town of Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital and gateway to the high Himalaya, soaking up its vibrant atmosphere and colorful culture.

  1. Incredible Experience
    By Dawn Clark March 2, 2024
    Sonam is an amazing guide. From the moment he picked us up at Kathmandu airport until he dropped us off after completing the trek, he was incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating. His extensive knowledge about the country, especially the Everest region where he is from, made our journey even more enriching. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend Sonam and Mosaic.
  2. Great Company
    By Stephen Noble January 7, 2024
    This was my first time visiting Nepal and I wanted to do some hiking. Trekking was something new to me and as I wanted to see Everest, I signed up for the Everest Panorama Trek. There were some problems, like cancellations of the Lukla flight, but Madhav at Mosaic Adventure handled them smoothly and immediately rearranged our flight for the next day and reworked the teahouse bookings accordingly. During the trek, Madan took good care of me and was always there to check on my well being. My first trekking experience went really well, so I would like to do more, hopefully in Nepal with the same team. Highly recommended trek and Mosaic Adventure as a tour operator.
  3. Excellent trek, fantastic company
    By Neva Futuro December 16, 2023
    I really suggest Mosaic Adventure and our guide Rudra to anyone who wants to trek in Nepal. They are an fantastic company! We want to thank Madhav (the owner), Rudra (our guide) and Ram (our porter) for organizing our Everest Panorama Trek. We had a fantastic time doing this trek. The experience was excellent.
  4. Memorable Trek Around Everest Himalayas
    By Pam C November 12, 2023
    My two friends and I had an amazing time in the Himalayas during our recent trek with Mosaic Adventure. We booked the 10 days Everest Panorama trek and everything went smoothly, providing us with the trip of a lifetime. Upon our arrival in Kathmandu, our trek guide Purna met us at the airport and transferred us to the hotel. We met Madhav, with whom we had been communicating while booking this trek, in the hotel and we had some pre-trip briefing. With Purna, we flew to Lukla, met our two porters and enjoyed the entire trek that led us up to Tengboche Monastery. It was truly a great trip accompanied by an exceptional guide. There is nothing they could have done better. Upon returning to Kathmandu, we explored the city with guide Keshar, who is also very informative about the culture, religion and sights that we visited. We definitely recommend these guys and would like to thank Madhav, Purna, Keshar and those two porters.
  5. Everest View Trekking
    By Kris Beckers April 9, 2023
    I am happy to have had a nice Everest View trekking arranged by Mosaic Adventure. Our guide, Santosh, is really friendly and helpful. He kept checking on us and asking if we were doing well. Santosh was informative and professional. It was a nice teahouse trek where I could meet people from various countries, some of whom were doing the EBC and some were climbing peaks. Hopefully, I will be back with my friends to do Everest Base Camp next time and I will definitely do it with the Mosaic team.
  6. Outstanding
    By Ander Schmit March 25, 2023
    Visiting Nepal and signing up for the Everest Panorama trek was the best decision our family made. It has been one of our best adventure trips together. We enjoyed Kathmandu, despite its chaos, the city holds a peaceful charm with its Buddhist and Hindu temples. Our guide, Keshar was truly exceptional in showing us around these attractions. During the trek, our guide Ramesh and the porters did an outstanding job, treating us like close family. We were genuinely happy experiencing this country's beauty, diversity, mountains and surprises. A big thank you to Mosaic Adventure, especially to Ramesh and Keshar for guiding us and to Palden and Pembas for helping us carry our bags.
