    4.0 - Good

    Overall, the trip matched the itinerary well, so potential travelers have a good idea of what to expect. The rating of 5 for activity level is accurate in that the trek is physically demanding, but doesn't require much (if any) prior training for the average fit adult. However, it does take an enormous amount of willpower to keep going through illness (everyone on the trip got gastro at some point), lack of sleep due to the high elevation, sore feet, etc. If you're up to the challenge, Bhim and Narayan-our guides-were incredible and truly made the trip!

    I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the post card beauty of Nepal and the challenge of reaching the base of the world's most famous mountain. Tikendra and his team did an amazing job looking after our group and catering to the individual needs of trekkers whenever a personal issue arose. I decided to go with World Expeditions for two reasons, one was length (a lot do it quicker and that is not the best way to do high altitude treks) and second because I was travelling solo. Best decision I have ever made! The permanent camps are better than most of the tea houses, the food is consistent and safe as the same people cook for you each night. I couldn't think of a better way to experience this fantastic part of the world.

    I would definitely recommend this tour/or tour group for any of your future adventures. If you have any inclination to visit Nepal, just do it. This country is full of wonderful scenery, honest people and plenty of photo opportunities. Our fantastic guide, Juddah Rai, was always focused, full of knowledge and a wonderful bloke. Well done World Expeditions for employing such remarkable people.

If you are prepared mentally and physically all you need is WE to organise everything else for you. Do respect the land. I came back like a winner.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • James12th May 2018
      I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
