    I travelled with Intrepid on the EBC trek. Unfortunately, due to poor weather we needed to take a helicopter from Lukla at the cost of $500 dollars. Our group leader refused to assist us in arranging the helicopter as some of us were going to miss our... Read more

    Epic scenery, amazing group of people - such a fun dynamic, and everyone was so supportive as the trek got into the higher altitudes. Loved every second.

    Once in a lifetime trip! Maybe twice. I'm already planning to go back. Everything about this trip was amazing. Our guide, Ram, was incredibly knowledgeable and super fun. The scenery was spectacular. If you enjoy a good challenge as a part of your holiday,... Read more

    Hi Patrick, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Climbing to Everest Base camp twice – we are impressed! You must let us know if you do it, as that is exactly the kind of adventure that we love to know about (maybe you can even write a blog about it for us?). Hope to see you again soon (but enjoy a nice rest first!) Kind regards, Intrepid

    1.5 - Rather poor

    Overall, a poor tour. You are constantly paying for extra items that are extremely overpriced. As a couple we spent over US$500 in 8 days on food and water alone. The Intrepid trip leader has little to no knowledge of dealing with western guests, he was... Read more

    Overall this is a poor tour, the guide was only concerned about his own reputation and completely disregarded the safety of other passengers on the trip. He was frequently intoxicated at night and would become aggressive towards other members of the group... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What do I need to know about this trip with regards to the accommodation?

      Accommodation on this tour will be made at local lodges - better known as teahouses - simple but comfortable places to saty in. Toilets and washing facilities are shared and rudimentary, and the food is plain and filling.

      In a teahouse, passengers are provided with small twin share rooms with twin beds, mattresses and pillows. At times, in high seasons, and in places where there are limited number of teahouses, passengers have to make do with dormitories. In some places, teahouses do not have access to electricity, depending on solar powered lighting instead.

      In more remote regions, teahouses do not have running water and toilets can mean just a hole in the ground. Hot shower facilities are available in some teahouses for a price, but in most of the places, a hot shower means a bucket of hot water, barely enough to wash your body.

    • Are there any supplemental fees for solo travellers?

      There is no mandatory single supplement on this trip, however you can request one be added, should you prefer to have your own room.

    • Is it necessary to bring a sleeping bag and mat?

      You can choose to bring your own sleeping bag or rent one in Nepal.

    • Vicki10th June 2018
      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
