The porters were brave as well and very nice. It was our longest stay in Nepal and we want to be there again! Good luck to the entire team of Everest Base Camp Trekking Tours.

Best Company in Town!

(5/5)

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek from its original route i.e. Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek. The trek was long but had enough time for acclimatization so I didn’t felt any problems of altitude sickness. The company provided very good service and my guide Binod took a great care of me. During the trek I get chance to experience village life and encounter with the people of different cultures and tribes. We could hardly find any trekkers along the way, since it is long route to EBC there was very less traffic. However, from Namche the route is same and there we could see numbers of fellow trekkers on the way. The trek was interesting because of Binod, if he wasn’t with me IDK what my trek would have been and I was lucky choosing one of the best company in town.
Address: USA

Superb and Fantastic trek!

(5/5)

Jiri to Everest Base Camp was one of the most incredible treks of my life. I’m glad choosing this company. Kedar and the guide Phurba provided wonderful service during my stay in Nepal. I really had a great time and wish to see you again very soon. Thank you!
