My husband and I had a fantastic time on the EBC trek. What made it special was our lovely guide Suman who seems to know everyone on the mountains, made our trek pleasant and told us lots of stories and culture. We felt we were well looked after and the portions of the meals were huge. Mr Rana personally welcomed us and we are thankful for his company Adventure Himalayas for organising this unforgettable tour.
I shared this trip with three friends and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. We enjoyed amazing landscapes, met many wonderful local people and learnt so much about this great country. Our guide, Bhakta, was extremely helpful and would always find the way to enhance our experience. We really had a great time with him and the two porters. This is a highly recommended trekking, not too hard, to discover an amazing country. I would point out that the sleeping bags were not necessary since all the guest houses provided us with blankets so they were just an extra weight for the porters and took so much space in the duffel bags.
[Original Text] Un viaje muy recomendable fuera de los tours más conocidos como el campamento base del Everest o el del Anapurna. Tanto los alojamientos, como la comida han sido buenísimos. Nuestro guía Bhakta Bahadur, un experto montañero que ha estado pendiente de nosotros continuamente y asesorándonos muy bien en todo momento. Sin duda un viaje para repetir.
everything about this tour was more than we could have hoped for. From the moment we were met at Kathmandu airport by Mr. Rana we were completely taken care of. Our permit for Tibet was ready the three days later needed by the Chinese embassy in Kathmandu. We were transferred for our flight to Lhasa and met at hotel in KTM upon our overland return from Tibet. The tour of TIbet with driver and guide followed faithfully our itinerary, the highlight of course being an unobstructed sunrise of the north face of Everest. Our guide was very solicitous of us all the way, always being sure the altitude was OK for us. Both he and the driver were always on time, we travelled many kms. But not tiring. This was the trip of a lifetime, you indeed feel you are at the top on the world in these beautiful mountain valleys surrounded by unforgettable peaks. Unless you want to include Mount Kailish, this 9 day trip was the perfect amount of time, Staying in Lhasa for three nights helped the acclimatization to the altitude, although Everest Base Camp is a bit of a stretch. But the alternative to staying at a hotel two hours away outweighed the discomfort (we did not take diamox and were OK). Overland to Kathmandu from Tibetan border was an experience, but not to be missed. If I was to decide to do this over again, this would be the itinerary, and Adventure Himalayan Travels out of Kathmandu would be the agent. To start in Lhasa and end in KTM is much the best direction, you need to have a week to acclimatize to 5200 m. At Everest, plus the view is better from the north side. This tour rates 100% for organization, facilitation, and the kindness of the people of Kathmandu and Tibet
We just returned back to Kathmandu from the Everest base camp trek and Lobuche Peak Climbing. We saw so many incredible Mountain views from the base camp and we were successful on climbing the summit Lobuche peak. It was the trip of a lifetime and we are very grateful that there were no issues and no problems throughout the trip. Thank you Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks for providing us with this wonderful experience and a professional Guide.
