    Nepal and the Everest Base camp trek were beyond what you could ever imagine! Our guide Bharat was awesome and made sure everything went smooth and that we didn't miss a thing. Prem and Ace the Himalaya are amazing! Not a day goes by I don't think about Nepal and our trek can't wait to go back!

    A few years ago I booked the Everest Base Camp trip with Ace the Himalaya. At the time I was a 61 year old experienced hiker, having just finished hiking Kilimanjaro the previous November. From the time I arrived in Kathmandu and was met by the crew to the final days, Prem's team took excellent care of every single detail. As a writer, I had chosen to bring a long a solar battery back for my computer (which worked intermittently based on sunshine availability) and although I pack lightly, my gear bag was still a bit heavy. I had an extraordinarily powerful porter with a wonderful sense of humor, and he and forged a fun relationship which involved my ensuring that he found something delicious stuck in the handles every day when he had to shoulder his load. His quick smile and good humor made the sometimes long, long hiking days go by quickly. Our guide, Raj, had a geyser of energy and humor. Our trip was marked by some heavy snows near the top. About half our group who were more experienced chose not to try to make it to the base camp due to the extreme conditions and danger of avalanche. Several went on anyway, and some paid with altitude sickness. The team took it in stride and handled the inevitable group conflict well, sending our group back with my English speaking porter to manage our needs until we all met back up safely later. To say that the views are stunning is beyond obvious. The trek itself is magnficent. What makes it so worthwhile has a great deal to do with Prem Khatry's professionalism and his commitment to the community, and his willingness to consistently wrap money from his business back into important community projects. I spent time with Prem after the tour to get to know him a bit better. He was the youngest member of Rotary in Nepal, and he is successful not only because he began as a porter and worked his way up, but because he passionately believes in taking care of people. To wit: I signed up to do the Annapurna hike, and I was the only one. When it came time, most outfits would have cancelled. Prem guaranteed me a guide and a porter nonetheless. Had the earthquake not hit that year, I;d have had an amazing solo trip all to myself, courtesy Ace the Himalaya. That's a class act. And it's why I will use them again when I am ready to return, or to go to Bhutan. Ace the Himalaya is the kind of business I am proud to review and support because of the personal business values of Prem Khatry, and the quality and competence of his guides. As a single female adventure traveler of a certain age, I value tour operators who don't patronize me, and who provide an excellent, safety-focused experience which also pushes me to my limits. It's hard to imagine a better investment for your travel dollar.

Its not really a complaint, just an observation from our last three nights. Everyone worked to make our trip memorable, and when everyone was stuck in Lukla, we were given the only flight out. Overall, the trip was a once in a lifetime memory. Thank you Prem, Chris, and the rest of the Ace team for a job well done.

    I had an outstanding experience on the 16 day Everest Base Camp trek with Ace the Himalaya. I cannot say enough good things about the company and out guides. I booked solo as part of a 12 person group trek. Ace was very organized and promptly answered all my question via email before my trip began. During the trek our guides were extremely professional and prepared, and handled any situations that arose (such as altitude sickness or other medical situations) with complete ease. They did a fantastic job of making sure everyone had a safe and fun experience. I hope to return to Nepal in the future, and if I do I will most definitely use Ace again. Keith A Stuttgart, Germany

    My daughter and I were on the Everest Base Camp trek. I got sick on the trek. I almost made it to EBC but had to call it quits at Gorak Shep. My guide Nimesh Nepal practically carried me down the mountain until I could get a helicopter ride to the hospital. I may owe my life to my guide. My sickness was my own fault. Ace was wonderful and my daughter made it to EBC and has nothing but praise for all concerned. I recommend ACE for anyone. Just be in better shape for the climb than I was. I am a 60 year old man.

    “Bucket list trip of a lifetime” Everyone must do a big trekking trip in their life and if you have to pick one why not make it Everest Base Camp! There's a lot of info on what to bring and how to do it, but if you want to have a good chance at succeeding you will need a guided trip and Ace the Himalaya's got it done. I'm not one to book a guided adventure I like to take the "path less traveled," but dealing with high altitude and wanting to improve my chance at success i picked out Ace the Himalaya. I saw them on the Clymb.com Top 3 tips 1. Plan on being a vegetarian 2. Over all top group medical issues heartburn, travelers diarrhea and Altitude. Be ready for these issues! **Tip lots of sunscreen if there's snow out put sunscreen inside nose!!! the sun reflecting will burn you even inside your nose and bring or use a trekking buff!!! 3. Extra digital camera batteries and sleep with your batteries to keep them warm to help prevent them from losing a charge. Frankie M Portland, Oregon

    “EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME” We have just returned last week from the experience of a lifetime. Truly something we will never forget. The trek was purely and simply amazing…from the awe inspiring scenery, the professionalism of the company and friendliness and gentleness of the Nepalese people. We cannot speak highly enough of the excellent service provided to us by Prem Khatry at “Ace the Himalaya” our guide Arjun Khatri and porters Prakash Puri and Man Bahadur. Nothing was too much trouble right from the word go… we felt well informed and welcomed to Nepal which put our minds at ease; as we were about to embark on an adventure the likes of which we had not experienced before. The three guys who were our companions for 13 days and nights (Arjun, Prakash and Man), were professional, friendly, loads of fun and very caring and attentive to all our needs. We got to know each other very well and they made us feel that the enjoyment of our trip and our safety was most important to them. Arjun made it possible for us to do the trek at our own pace, making it even more enjoyable and minimizing the chance of altitude sickness. We will never forget them. All round it was an excellent experience.. we were really impressed with the level of service from everyone involved from the CEO, the city guide, drivers, our guide and our porters. We strongly recommend “Ace the Himalaya” to anyone considering trekking to Everest Base Camp. Lou, Butcher and Ronnie Vronnnn

    “Best in Nepal” ACE really is the best day trip outfit you can select while in Nepal and wanting to go for extended hikes (I went to EBC). I had a few logistical problems of my own while hiking and Prem and other helped me through my ordeals and reorganized hotels and drivers that I needed throughout my stay in Kathmandu. The trek itself I went on was amazing, even though it did take a physical toll on me. My guide was the best in the business and helped me to no end, as did my porter carrying my other things- very gracious and kind people. I highly recommend any of the trips ACE has to offer- I just wish I did more and went to neighboring Tibet and Bhutan. So my advice while researching the best treks is to go with the professionals of ACE the Himalaya! jbeebs18 New York City, New York
