    AN incredible trip. Best to get active/be in shape beforehand to fully enjoy it. The guides are incredible and the sights are nothing I had ever seen before. I will remember this trip forever.

    One of my all time fave trips. Trekking to Everest is an experience I will never forget. This is a great trip if you just want to vanish and disconnect. I loved being able to walk all day and just breathe in the mountains. One of the real highlights for myself was being able to chat and connect with the leaders, it was really cool to be able to talk to them about life in Nepal. Ohhh and don't forget to eat as many Momos as possible, they are delicious Nepalese dumplings.

    Excellent trip and fantastic knowledgable and helpful guides. It was a bit too cold in December but the track wasn\'t too touristed or dirty so it was a trade off.

Questions & Answers

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

    • December 1, 2016

      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.

    • December 1, 2016

      I was wondering what are the supplies required for this tour?

      A trip note will be sent to you once you booked this trip. This document outlines what is required in terms of equipment, what is essential to pack on this tour as well as other essential information.

    • November 29, 2016

      What physical shape do I have to be in to participate in this tour?

      All travellers need to be in good physical health in order to participate fully on this trip. This is a strenuous 12 day trek that reaches altitudes above 5500m. You would be trekking between 4-8 hours per day and due to the demands of travelling at high altitudes a Passenger Self Assessment Form is required for this trip.
