Everest Base Camp Trek is not just about being on top of the world but it’s about facing the challenges that comes by to achieve the dream of being on the top! The never ending rough paths that winds up and down in the high altitude with thin air, the journey is not a simple undertaking. It’s a path full of challenges and at times you may question your sanity if your decision for the trek was wise? But the breath taking views of the mountains in such a wild attire will keep you going! As you move along, the changing landscape from green farmland, dense rhododendron forest, alpine vegetation to dry and barren land in the backdrop of the towering wild mountains, you will admit that your choice for the Everest Base Camp Trek was worth it. Despite of all those physical and mental challenges, the trophy of being on top of the world – Mt Everest is the proudest moment that you will hold for lifetime.

Your journey starts from the chaotic city of Kathmandu. The busy capital city is crowded with people, noise that is totally different from the experience that you will get amidst the mountains in the Everest region. A flight in a small aircraft will take you to the dramatic terrain of Lukla. The short flight goes parallel to the White Mountains above the lush landscape and lands in a dramatic way in the narrow runway. The journey heads forward with ups and downs along the uneven paths and dense forests to the rocky and wild paths that takes us close to the quaint mountains. The environment is silent and isolated full of wilderness. The colourful prayer flags, Chorten, stupas and monasteries found on the way to the Base Camp gives spiritual touch to our journey.

The major highlights of this journey includes Sagarmatha National Park, Namche Bazaar, hike to Everest view hotel, Tengboche monastery, Everest Base Camp and Kalapattar. Namche Bazaar is a popular town in Khumbu region that is full of shops and hotels. It is a main trade centre of Khumbu region and is an only gateway to Everest. The warm hearted people in Namche are so heart whelming that they will make you feel homely. Everest view hotel is a hotel plus vantage point that offers the spectacular mountains in Everest region. Tengboche monastery is a spiritual hub that offers more close up views of mountains in the Everest region. The views of mountains like Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and Khumbu glacier from Everest Base Camp and Kalapattar is beyond any words of description. Your eyes will wander from one peak to another as you stand in between the rising pinnacles of the mountains.

I began planning a few months ago and decided to go with Nepal Hiking Team (actually because of the good reviews on trip advisor!) and I am so glad I did. Ganga answered all of my emails so quickly, outlined all of the inclusions and exclusions and there was nothing hidden, helped me arrange for a hostel for a few days before I met the trekkers as requested. Balaram was my contact while I was in Nepal; gave me a prompt airport pick-up, even leaving a cell number where I could reach him, answered all of my questions, was always so on time for meeting me, made sure I was fully prepared before the trek began and had everything I needed.

I was partnered up with two lovely British gals so our team was three trekkers, two guides (Bheg and Raj) as well as porter. We had a blast! There were tons of laughs! The guides were knowledgeable, fun, took very good care of us, and were supportive, and safe….and pretty handy with the camera and with the dance moves! Ha-ha! They checked in about our health, made sure we acclimatized, ate well, slept, etc. I was extremely pleased and think it was part of the reason I made it to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar!

I now want to return to Nepal and will 100% book another trek with Nepal Hiking Team (hopefully with Bheg again!) and recommend them very highly. I have also trekked in India and Patagonia, and I think this company is excellent! Thanks for everything!! Also a drop off to the airport on the way home – I was a lone female traveler and had a great experience in Nepal, but I felt like they were my contacts and advocates while I was there! Great, great trip!

I recently returned from Nepal after finishing EBC Trek. Prior to booking my trip I talked with 8 different companies all with superb trip advisor reviews. After communicating with different companies and negotiating a price, I was determined to go with Nepal Hiking Team. I was welcomed by the team after two days of flying to get to Kathmandu at 11:30pm with cheerfulness and I was transferred to the hotel from the airport.

The EBC trek was much more amazing with Shiva as my guide. He tried his best to make sure everything was well. On several occasions, he used to ask if there was anything else he could do to make my experience best. He was much concerned about my health and he consistently made sure I was doing okay while hiking every day. He also informed that slow walk will help to avoid altitude sickness and we did. People reached to the destination before an hour or 2 than us and some of those trekkers ended up falling sick. Shiva, therefore said, “This is why we take our own time, there is no rush for us.” I felt accomplished reaching EBC, and Shiva played an important role to help me reach safely. I know Ganga and Hari are running NHT and I credit them for a job well done. Guides are polite and they put the client first. I hope people read this review and distinguish Shiva’s well done job.

The Chitwan jungle safari experience was also great. The company arranged a bus for me and also provided transport to get to the bus as well as to pick me up. The guide in Chitwan was much knowledgeable and passionate about his job, which made the tour worthwhile.

I also experienced Kathmandu sightseeing tour around the main sites which provided me with a lot of information about Kathmandu. Some of which, I revisited on my own time.

16-days Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team was an absolutely extraordinary trekking. The team has one intention to assure the best time of every trekker in the group. I, along with four other trekkers accomplished the 16 day Everest Base Camp Trek adventure.

Our experienced guide, Raj and porters also popular as Sherpas- Govinda, Bishnu and Narayan shared every detail to give us most unforgettable experiences. Plus, Raj was exceptionally “heads up” when he arranged a private helicopter to get us to Phakding when weather forced all fixed wing aircraft to isolated airstrips making their passengers to miss a day or getting on the trail.

I will certainly choose Nepal Hiking Team for all of my future trips to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. They offer best price, best know how and best team.

Me and my girlfriend, Karen just returned from a haunting trek to Everest Base Camp with the assistance and guidance of NHT and would like to greatly recommend them. I was in constant contact with Ganga Raj Thapa, managing director at NHT before our trip. He shared about necessary equipment to buy, how to prepare for and gave a lot of necessary information. As we reached Kathmandu, we were greeted by members of NHT at the airport who helped us check into our hotel in Kathmandu (Gaju Suites) without any fuss.

On the very first day in Kathmandu, we got to enjoy fantastic sightseeing tour of all the main historical and cultural sites. Plus, Kumar, the informative guide with good sense of humor and top of all very passionate about city made the tour more interesting. We were much impressed with NHT and the assets of Nepal. We were also introduced to our trekking guide, Deepak the day before flying to the Himalayas. Deepak also helped us to drive to the airport the next morning and took care of our flight check in and luggage.

We were prepared to give up a few luxuries during the trek, however with the aid of NHT, on the way we enjoyed best accommodation services and enjoyed lunch at the best locations. Deepak, and our porter, Khumba both added a lot of fun; they were very much engaging, generous as well as made us much comfortable.

On the way back, while descending Karen’s altitude sickness got worse which was later discovered that it was not to be taken lightly as it was caused due to fluid in her lungs from AMS. We decided to call a chopper to evacuate her out. Everything was arranged by Ganga and Deepak while Karen was able to rest. Within a couple of hours, we were in a chopper on the way to Kathmandu. As soon as we arrived, Ganga was there to help Karen get admitted in the hospital. We were quite anxious about the thought of spending a couple of nights in a far-off hospital; however NHT ensured that we were in a private hospital which was quite similar to a hotel. Once Karen got discharged, NHT picked us up from the hospital, and also drove us back to the hospital for a final check-up before flying out. This showed that NHT really care about their clients’ experiences and safety.

Trekking to the Himalayas was an incredible experience and I highly recommend it to anyone, it’s tough, and challenging- yet the landscape, the wonderful Sherpa people and the fellow friends we met along the way make it all worth it. If you are interested, I unquestionably recommend Nepal Hiking Team.

I’m hoping to visit Nepal another time and will be taking assistance from NHT again.

Just experienced amazing and once in a lifetime trek to EBC with Nepal Hiking Team! As a solo traveler, in my 20’s I was always taken care of and in safe hands with NHT. Upon arrival to Kathmandu all the way through my return to the airport NHT was conscious about my comfort and satisfaction.

Ganga had been always very punctual and professional with my questions before my trip and very helpful and generous while in Kathmandu. I loved the location of our hotel in Kathmandu which was a quick walk away from the well-known Thamel shopping area!

An experienced guide Deepak accompanied me during the trek and I couldn’t have imagined someone else better for me! He was very amusing, cracked jokes, and always tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible. But, more significantly, he always took care of my health on the mountains. He used to frequently ask how I felt during the trek to avoid any medical danger. I did get quite ill because of the altitude and Deepak had medication to help me.

I had a great experience with Nepal Hiking Team and would book with them on my next travels to Nepal!

I would like to express gratitude towards Ganga and Balaram as they had been co-operative and amazing on replying all my email on time and with much patience. No matter what, they have patiently and happily replied tons and tons of questions. They arranged my trip very well and I was very contented as everything was done efficiently. Very special thanks to the most excellent guide in the world ever- Deepak. I travelled alone and he always took care of me and solved all my queries during my trek.

Nepal Hiking Team overall is one of the amazing travel companies that cares about their clients than just money which makes the company different from other trekking companies. They always prioritized about my safety, food and were much conscious about my happiness. They offered excellent service with best price.

Ganga and Balaram personally fetched and dropped me to and from the airport with lovely welcome greetings and farewells. With Nepal Hiking team, I enjoyed the best trip. It’s really significant to find the right trekking company and I would like to recommend them as they were more interested in my well being throughout my stay in Nepal. I would undeniably come back to Nepal for more treks and will choose Nepal Hiking Team. I have experienced ABC and EBC back to back with no difficulty accompanied by my fantastic guide Deepak as well as the other perfect arrangements of Ganga and Balaram.

They even called me after my ABC trek to confirm if I am all good and ready for the EBC trek as I did it continuously with no rest days in between. There was full precision from the start to the end. No hidden agendas. Nepal Hiking Team is a trustable, honorable company and they really CARE, therefore I would highly recommend it to all. Cheers!

I would like to express my big thanks to Nepal Hiking Team for excellently organizing my trip! In March 2015 my reverie came true as I visited The Roof of the World -Everest Base Camp. We were a small group of two. The guide and porter were very friendly and helpful. During the trek we enjoyed good accommodations as almost all lodges had private toilet, and 4 lodges even had hot shower. We also enjoyed very good free breakfast, lunch and dinner during the trek. I also got the chance to savor several different dishes, including local and traditional ones, which were so delicious. Trek was organized promptly, plus, transfer to/from airports (Kathmandu and Lukla) was also on time ! Excellent trekking organization.

I would highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team as it is very good trekking agency with lower prices and excellent services.
