    5.0 - Excellent

    This is probably my favourite trip that I've ever been on. The views, the people, the new friends, the guide, everything. I went at the end of May, and we had some really good weather. I couldn't imagine doing this trek in the cold months, although I'm sure it adds something special to the trip. We got to see it snow at base camp, so we saw it all! None of the individual days of hiking were terribly difficult, but hiking day after day after day can get tiring if you're not in decent cardio shape. I would recommend getting some running/hiking in before this trip, but you don't need to do any hyper-intense training. One of the guys in our group got hit with altitude sickness and had to get flown down, but there's no real way to predict if it will happen to you or not, and it should not deter you from signing up for this incredible trip!

    Excellent experience, superb leadership by the guide CEO Suman Khatri and support from the three young Sherpas. The arrival of monsoon season did not detract from the views, walking or overall experience.

    It was a great experience. The guides (Shankar and Kassy) were always on top of everything making sure everybody was doing ok. It was challenging but all great because everybody made it to EBC.

    A good trek, don't hire your gear until after the Lukla flight and don't bother bringing chocolate, it is very cheap on the walk. Definitely pack some fresh fruit and veg, you'll miss them, and some beef jerky too. Take some (rock climbers) hand wax for any dry skin and or cuts.I found my guide Dawa was good really generally until after the tour where he got near stalkerish hunting us down to give him reviews- one of his travelers gave him a bad review and Dawa ripped into him.

    Dawa could not have been a better guide. His strength and encouragement through such a difficult time in Nepal was amazing.

Why Travel With G Adventures?

Questions & Answers

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

    • January 1, 2017

      I am worried if you guys recommend still doing the trekking to the Everest base camp when the person has had 10 days of no intense workout?

      G Adventures rates this tour as "Challenging - Serious high-altitude hikes, cycling, or other instances of heavy exercise. Come prepared to sweat a bit."

      With that being said, your stamina after 10 days rest should not be affected too much and you should be quite fine to take part in this tour!

    • September 26, 2016

      I had booked an Everest Base camp trek through Faralong for Nov. 6th which just got cancelled. As I have already booked flights, is it possible to join this trek arriving on the 6th in the morning at the airport in Katmandu? Or do you have other options for me while I am there from the 6th until the 23rd.?

      Sounds like an incredible trip - I can see G Adventures has an available place on this tour departing November 8th and ending November 22nd which would perfectly suit your dates. But there's only 2 seats left so you would have to move fast to secure your place! It's a guaranteed departure too so will not be cancelled :)

      If that does not suit we can explore other options but G Adventures is one of the most popular tour operators we have listed on our site and I can highly reccommend their trips!

    • September 1, 2016

      I am considering this tour and I would like to know what is the temperature rating requirement for personal gear and what personal gear is required?

      G Adventures advised that your personal equipment should be able to withstand temperatures up to -20 degrees celsius. Within the trip notes you will find a packing list detailing the recommended items and temperature requirements.
