    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.

    Best experience I have ever had. I will not try to describe it as it can only be experienced. As promised WE looked after us very well. Guides were awesome. Our chef Mila trekked all the way with us.Hot cordial before a meal was so refreshing. Food was mostly organic. Due to the bowl of water we got every morning and evening, our group looked much cleaner than the rest of the travellers. 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.

    Five Stars all the way with World Expeditions!! Excellent campsites - wake up in the most beautiful places in the world, surrounded by craggy, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild rivers and picturesque Nepali villages. Great food, cooked on site by WE cooks and helpers, all trained in hygienic food preparation and service. I had fresh and cooked vegies every day! Plus lots of brekkie options, and delicious soups and meat dishes at night. Group leader Roy spoke excellent English, was very experienced and professional, and could answer all our questions. Roy helped us with finding WIFI spots, charging our devices, finding showers and good laundry options. He was also very entertaining with his singing and guitar! Among many other things he gave us guidance on what layers to wear each day, and most importantly, monitored everyone for signs of altitude sickness. He also walked at the back of our group to keep an eye on everybody and give care and advice to anyone with any problems. Our Sherpa Meg who guided the trek from the front and also helped serve the food, brought us our early morning cup of tea and our wash-bowls, and anything else we needed, was a busy man all day long and nothing was too difficult for him. We had porters to carry our kitbags and they were very well organised by the Sirdar Gopal, picking up our kitbags every morning and delivering them to our new campsite before we got there ourselves. Great work guys. I had a wonderful experience on the trek, amazing scenery and Nepali culture, just lovely people in our group (in fact the best!), we had lots of fun together! The trek was quite strenuous with many, many steep inclines and declines, it was a great achievement for me and I was fortunate to go with such wonderful trek buddies and such an excellent organisation as World Expeditions.
    World Expeditions commented on this review
    Thanks for the really positive review. Sounds like you had an excellent and memorable adventure. Really glad you appreciate the unique benefits that a team of porters, cooks, sherpas, guides can add to your special experience. Happy Trails!

Questions & Answers

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

    • December 1, 2016

      Do you know if altitude sickness prevents many people from making it to base camp?

      Our treks allow ample acclimation so we don't really hear of anyone not making it to base camp. We have rest days, we walk high & sleep at lower altitudes to help our bodies adjust. Our aim is for you to have an enjoyable experience & not for it to be a race. There is plenty of water provided also & it's really important to be well. All of these things will help.
