Overview And Highlights

Everest Base Camp Trek is probably the highest and hardest base camp trek in the world as it is the gateway to the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest.

Every year millions of people from all across the world visit Nepal with the common goal of watching the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest.

Although not everyone comes with the intention of climbing the highest peak, most people at least have the Everest base camp trek to have the memory of their lifetime.

Similarly, this once-in-a-lifetime trek is a dream bucket list for several adventure freaks around the world.

Throughout the base camp trek, you can have a majestic feeling and a jaw-dropping view of nature. No matter how hard the journey might be, reaching the highest base camp will surely restore your energy level.

Well, in this package of the Everest base camp trek, we have listed everything, including the cost, itinerary, guide, routes, etc.

Route to Everest Base Camp

Kathmandu to Lukla

Lukla is the base of Everest base camp from where the real trekking begins. Likewise, reaching the Lukla is itself a big challenge as you have to land at one of the most dangerous and risky airports in the world.

So, the adventure begins on day one of the journey. Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is the common route to begin trekking.

The runway lies on the edge of the hill, which makes it even scarier if the airplane fails to take off on its first attempt, then the airplane might crash into the deep valley.

Similarly, the cost of a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and vice-versa is around $366 per person. You can also postpone or shift the dates of the flight while trekking.

Likewise, during the flight, you are only allowed to carry 10kg of luggage.

So, do not forget to have a valid permit before starting a trek from Kathmandu. Well, the cost to have a permit is USD$30, which you can also get in Lukla.

Besides that, you will also need a permit to enter the Sagarmatha National Park, which you will experience on the way to the Everest base camp.

Best time to plan for Everest Base Camp Trek

Not every day is the day to plan and have a trek to the Everest base camp because Everest only welcomes trekkers in two favorable seasons.

Likewise, the best season falls from March to May, pre-monsoon, and from late September to November, post-monsoon season.

Pre Monsoon Trek

Between early February to late May, the weather remains dry and stable with a crystal clear view of the majestic Himalayas. During the pre-monsoon trip, you can also experience snow-covered mountains.

Post-Monsoon Trek

This season is another best time for trekking EBC as the weather is much clearer with fewer clouds. However, you can feel the cold breeze during late November. Also, it is the best time to trek to the highest lake, Gokyo Lake.

Likewise, most Nepalese citizens travel during this season, and you can have really good accompany throughout the trek.

Importance of Guides and Porters during the Trek

No matter how confident you are during the adventurous trekking, traveling to a different country or new trekking route is always a risk with a lifetime memory.

Similarly, it is always safe to have a guide during the Everest base camp trek. You can find several agencies in Nepal, especially in Kathmandu, that will help to organize a guide who will make your trek extreme in better way.

Well, to approach a guide, you will have to pay for the food or accommodation. However, make sure you approach a registered guide and have fluent in speaking your language.

Also, you can have a porter who will carry your luggage up to 20kg. Similarly, the cost for a porter per day is around $20.

Travel Insurance for Everest Base Camp Trek

It is always better to have prevention before cure, as trekking in a remote location at a high altitude is always a risk. So, make sure to have health Insurance as high altitude sickness might catch anyone during the trek.

Since the route to the Everest base camp trek is challenging with no good roads or facilities, it is a must to have good health throughout the trek, as being injured or sick is not an option.

Also, getting altitude sickness might cost you even more as you might have to be evacuated by helicopter.

Everest Base Camp Trekking Travel Insurance

Buying the right travel insurance is important for any adventure. You could lose your luggage, miss your flight or get sick and wind up in the hospital.

You should have Everest Base Camp Trekking Insurance that covers all the important bases. You need a comprehensive policy that will not only cover your medical costs, but also the cost of helicopter evacuation in case of an emergency.

In order to find the right Everest Base Camp Trekking Insurance for you, you need to understand the risks involved and the type of coverage that will suit you best. Most of the companies only offer coverage at a maximum elevation of 3,000 meters, which is not enough to protect you from the high-altitude trek.

A comprehensive Everest Base Camp Trekking Insurance should cover the following: unexpected trip cancellation, lost or damaged luggage, a helicopter rescue, medical evacuation, and evacuation facility and rescue in a hurry.

The most important thing to remember when considering a policy is to make sure you read all the fine print. Most companies do not provide air support in an emergency, so it is important to choose an insurance provider that will stand by your side.

The top-notch coverage will not only cover the cost of evacuation, but also help you locate doctors, hospitals, foreign language services, and any other medical service you might need during your trek. Having Everest Base Camp Trekking Insurance will allow you to enjoy your vacation without having to worry about your safety and well-being.

Additional Information

Everest Base Camp Trek in March

Regardless of the time of year, trekking in the Everest region can be cold. Trekkers will need to pack layers of clothing to keep them warm during the night. This is because the temperatures can drop to below 0 degrees Fahrenheit in the evenings.

March is the transitional month between Winter and Spring. This means the temperatures are slightly colder and the skies are clearer. It is also the time of year when the Rhododendron trees bloom. The days are still long enough to trek and clear enough to enjoy the scenery.

March is a good time to trek. The weather is still cold, but the snow melts, and the mountains begin to open up. The trail is not as crowded as in the later months. There are fewer tourists, so you can enjoy your trek without having to fight for accommodation.

Several tea houses open up for the season after the winter break. They offer basic accommodation, including two beds and a shared toilet. They also provide basic food services. They might be crowded during the peak trekking season, so you should book your room early.

March is a good time to travel, but it is still cold. You will need to pack a warm jacket and gloves. You will also need to wear sunscreen and moisturizer.

The temperature at Everest Base Camp can drop to -5 degrees in the mornings and nighttime. You will also need to research the wind chill factor before heading out.

Everest Base Camp Trek in April

During April, the weather at Everest Base Camp is pleasant and clear. This is a great time to travel to the Himalayas, especially to trek to Everest Base Camp. This month is also ideal for climbing expeditions.

The trek is a spectacular natural experience. The Everest Base Camp region offers beautiful views of snow-covered mountains and a wide variety of plants.

Everest Base Camp Trek in May

Located near Everest, Everest Base Camp offers hikers a unique trek and the opportunity to experience nature firsthand. This trek has been dubbed "the steps to heaven." The route of Everest Base Camp offers trekkers the chance to view mountainous landscapes, glacial lakes, and rare flora and fauna.

Everest Trek Weather in June

Unlike January, which is generally cold and rainy, June is relatively dry. However, you may want to wear some waterproof gaiters and a good pair of hiking shoes to avoid slipping on slippery terrain. Also, wear thermal underwear as it helps to prevent fungal infections.

June is a great time to visit Everest. There is less crowding, and you will be able to enjoy the natural beauty that the region has to offer. The temperatures are mild at lower elevations, but the nights are cool.

There are several trekking routes that are open during this season. However, big passes are closed, and if you're planning to go higher, make sure you have a guide and the right gear.

June is not a month for the faint of heart. You can expect to be cold during the day and nights, but you'll also be able to enjoy clear skies. There may also be rain-shadowed areas, so make sure to bring some warm clothing.

There are some notable exceptions to this rule. For example, northern Nepal is not affected by monsoons. However, this is also the season for snowstorms to hit the region.

The month of June is also a good time to visit the Upper Mustang and Annapurna Circuit. However, you may find that the trek is not as spectacular as it would be during other times of the year.

Although June is the start of the monsoon season, there are still several trekking trails that are open. If you're planning a trip to Everest, be sure to do your homework to find out what the weather will be like.

Everest Base Camp Trek in October

Located in the Himalayan range, Everest Base Camp is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. The trails are lined with lush green vegetation and colorful rhododendrons. These trails also provide you with excellent views of the mountains. The trek is also ideal for viewing unique species of plants.

Everest Base Camp Trek is also a perfect way to experience Nepalese culture. You will have the chance to taste local dishes as well as international cuisine. You may also see rare animals. You will also have the chance to meet people from all over the world.

October is a great time to visit Nepal. This month is full of festivals. Tihar and Dashain are two of the main festivals. People from all over the country come together to celebrate these festivals. During these festivals, people share their blessings.

October month also provides you with perfect temperatures for trekking. The days are sunny and clear, making it a pleasant trek. The weather also makes it a perfect time for viewing mountain vistas.

October is one of the best months to visit Everest Base Camp. This is because the region is clear of snow and rainfall is minimal. The region is also clean from dust and dirt. The region also features rich and traditional villages. It is also home to ancient monasteries.

It is a good idea to start your trek early in the month. This will give you more time to enjoy the view of the sunset.

What is the joining group in 12 days Everest base camp trek?

Whether you are a first-time Everest Base Camp trekker or you have been there before, you will need a trekking equipment list to help you pack for the trip. Having the right gear can make or break your trek.

A lot of Everest Base Camp trekkers suffer from dehydration. This is caused by the lower oxygen levels at high altitudes. You should drink a lot of water every day.

In addition, you should pack a pair of light, windproof gloves. These will keep your hands warm when they are cold. Those made of cotton are best because they can absorb moisture.

For added protection, you should also pack a hat. You can also use a neck gaiter, which is a mask that covers your face and nose at high altitudes.

If you trek independently, you will also need a first aid kit. A first aid kit should include painkillers, insect repellent, diarrhea treatment (Imodium), and blister treatment.

You should also bring a pair of lip-protecting sunblock. You may also want to bring a finger pulse oximeter. A finger pulse oximeter is a device that can measure your oxygen saturation. If your oxygen saturation is below 70%, you should descend.

You should also pack a day pack or hydration bladder. The bladder should be able to hold 3 liters of liquid. You will also need a few spare batteries.

A high-quality camera is also a must. You will want to capture the scenery of the Everest region. DSLR cameras are best for this.

Greatly appreciated the guide and team for the continued support of the group despite the endless list of demands and adjustments during this trip, etc with managing the arrangement of alternative transportation back to Kathmandu or we would have missed our flight back home! Thanks for all the help and encouraging support!See less...

We had our Everest Base Camp (EBC) trip organized by Nir Lama. To sum it up in short - it was exceptional, unforgettable, and simply magic! The crew that he organized for our trek were extremely professional and experienced as well as absolute treasures of personalities - from the guide to all porters. The trek itinerary was well thought through and ended up working really well with all of us. I heartily recommend Nir Lana and his company to anyone who wants to have the no 1 trek experience a...

Awe-inspiring trip to Everest BC and Chitwan National Park. As many experiences start, ours started over email. Nir, the owner, is very responsive and happy to adjust any packages to fit your needs. Do note that his packages don’t include food or tips in the price. If you pay for your own food it comes out to be roughly the same price anyway. Upon landing, Nir picked us up at the airport and took us to a nice “3-star” hotel (according to google) in the center of Kathmandu. The location wa... See mores perfect and the accommodation was nicer than we expected. Our guide during our 12-day EBC trek was very nice, takes a few hours to warm him up and to start talking. As a traveler, don’t be afraid to ask questions the more you ask the more you’ll not only have a wonderful nature-immersive experience, but you’ll be culturally enlightened. One of the things I did learn on my trip is that not all sherpas are porters and not all porters are sherpas. Also, a cultural form of the caste system still exists. You only see it if you look for it. If you’re still considering hiking without a guide, stop. There were some times when I was leading our three-person pack and wasn’t sure which way to go. If we didn’t have our helpful guide, we surely would’ve gone wrong somewhere. Also, last minute we had to change a route due to ice which we would’ve never known if we didn’t have our guide. Finally, he helped us a lot when we did have symptoms of altitude sickness. He gave us medication only when he thought we needed it, made sure we ate well, gave us natural food remedies, and even massaged my husband’s head, which actually helped relieve his terrible headache. Anyway, get a guide. But don’t get just any guide. Get an experienced guide, as the PNT provides! Shout out to our porter, Furba, who literally carried our luggage up. He was timely, fast, and humble. Anyway, the trip was amazing. We kept in communication with Nir during our trip as we wanted to continue our travels through Nepal. We ended up booking a trip to Chitwan National Park. There were only two things that left a bit of a sour taste in our mouths. 1, on the last day our guide said we will have one last meal together (us, the guide, and porter) and he said he would treat us. However, the next day when we checked out we were left with the bill. It’s not bank-breaking, but it’s just the principle. 2, if you’re trying to be a conscious traveler, please note that most accommodations in a Chitwan will promote elephant riding. We repeatedly mentioned that we do not want to do this or see the elephant government “sanctuary,” yet we stayed at a place that can coordinate elephant riding and took us to the sanctuary on our way back from the walking safari. Even if we would’ve skipped it, we still paid for it indirectly. That being said, the accommodation & the actual safari guide were amazing! It’s hard to blame any company for this as there are only a few accommodations in Chitwan that do not promote elephant riding. In conclusion, I would recommend this company to anyone. It’s cost efficient, without sacrificing service. Thank you, Nir for facilitating this life-changing experience for us, and for allowing us to store our luggage in your office while he hiked. If you’d like to read more about my experience & costs I wrote 2 blog posts. Tracykassandra.com. Apologies for the grammatical errors. Typing on iPhone in a waiting room.See less...

FIRST TIME IN NEPAL First time in Nepal, In 2005 I had the honor of assisting to build a primary school in Pakuwal Tulo Parsel Nepal, together with a friend and on behalf of the Lions Club Schoorl. Tulo Parsel is the home ground of Nir Bahadur Lama, managing director of Peace Nepal Treks. During the building time I was in close contact with him, and still we are. Without him the project would not have been successful; Nir made our plans understandable for the villagers, who had to build the s... See morechool themselves, with a great result, as you can see in several pictures on this website. In the 3 months, I stayed in Nepal I, of course, did many touristic things, all arranged by Peace Nepal Treks. First we did the Everest Base Camp trek: 2 Dutch guys accompanied by a PNT guide and porter, flying to Lukla, then walking to EBC and back to Lukla, all in 15 days. I had not expected the trek would make me feel so alive. To walk in nature, to forget the fast world around you, all alone with your thoughts. What an experience. It was all very well organized by PNT. Don’t expect luxury in the Himalayas, but PNT makes you feel you have. Peace Nepal Treks also arranged a guided tour through Kathmandu and a rafting tour. Sightseeing Kathmandu is great, especially with a guide who knows all about the Nepali history, the buildings, their stories, and their Buddhist backgrounds. For rafting, PNT has many contacts in Nepal, so where ever you like to go rafting they will find you a place. I went near Pokhara, so it was possible to go to the city too. PNT arranged the bus, pick up, the rafting tour, the hotel in Pokhara. They made my stay perfect. All I had to do was enjoying….. Peace Nepal Treks, but especially Nir Bahadur Lama, made my first time in Nepal never to forget.See less...

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK 2014 Wow! What an amazing journey. This trip has been a year plus in the making and it finally came true. After trying to trek EBC back in September 2012 I finally made it. Nir and his staff members were a big part of that success. Prem Lama is an “A” class guide that is very knowledgeable of the region. Everest is a mesmerizing mountain, so be sure to bring your camera. While the flight to Lukla can be challenging, my suggestion would be to schedule enou... See moregh time to get on the mountain and off. In addition, pay attention to the amount of gear you bring. My wife and I didn’t use half of the gear we brought with us. While it’s easy to pack 23 Kilos (50lbs), Tara Airlines only allow a total (including your carry on) to be 15 Kilos. Note that they will charge you $5-10 for those extra pounds. The teahouses are nice and comfortable. Beware of using some of the blankets, for the reason they do not get washed everyday. Bringing an antifungal such as lamisil is helpful just in case you break out with some sort of rash. Three meals a day will range in price from about $15 give or take. You will also find junk food such as coke, Pringles, and mars bars for sell at almost all the teahouses. My suggestion is to pay attention to the expiration dates. The last thing you want is to be sick on a mountain with stomach aches. A hot shower if not a bucket of water cost about a dollar or two. Bring baby wipes to help keep these costs down. WiFi is available in some spots and often cost a few dollars for an hour or two depending if it is available at the time. Everest has very little American toilets that work, be prepare to use a hole in the ground. Don’t forget to bring at least a roll of toilet paper. If you run out, many of the teahouse will have them for sell. Most importantly, pace yourself. You will find that you’ll climb up a mountain just to climb down and back up the same mountain. The altitude really starts to change around Namche Bazaar. Take advantage of these rest days. If you experience altitude sickness order a bowl of garlic soup. There is something for everyone on the mountain when it comes to the menu. Of all the stops, Tengboche probably offers the best views right off the bat of many of the surrounding mountains. When you arrive back in Kathmandu, look into staying at “Hotel Tibet” and of course if you want something a little nicer, the “Hyatt Regency”…although pricey. Enjoy the trip and be sure to take lots of photos. Thanks Peace Nepal Treks.See less...

A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE (FEMKE) Can you imagine 13 Dutch girls going to Nepal for a holiday and a 10-day trek? Yes, it is possible! We are students at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. In our first year of studying (2006) we decided that we wanted to go on an adventurous holiday together in a different continent. To finance this plan we started with a savings-program, which made sure that everybody had enough money to join this trip. One year ago four girls starte... See mored organizing this trip and came in contact with Nir and Peace Nepal Treks. Last summer (July 2012)it was finally time to go on our adventurous 18 days trip to Nepal. To share our experience some of the girls wrote a short testimonial about their traveladventures with Peace Nepal Treks. A once in a lifetime experience (Femke) Namaste! Nepal is a country that once you visit; you definitely want to come back again. The beautiful nature and very friendly people are the main reason for this. It started with the nice welcome at arrival at the airport of Kathmandu and by doing a trekking you get to know more and more about the people and culture of Nepal. Hiking through the mountains of Nepal with 13 girls is very special! Of course it was not always easy (and we had a lot of rain!), though we all reached the finish with a big smile on our face. It was a once in a lifetime experience with 13 girls, which I will never forget. The group of Nir made our stay a great success, thank you all very much. I can’t wait to book my next flight the Nepal, to discover more beautiful sites of Never Ending Peace End Happiness!! Trip day-to-day Part I (Carien) Nir is a perfectly mannered person that can actually arrange everything for you in Nepal. He has a lot of patience since we had a lot of e-mail contact from-out our organization and were sometimes late with answering questions. We had a whole plan set up and he managed it really good. We had a very interesting guide that guided us through the city-highlights. After that we started with our trek, a big experience for all (13!) of us! All the guides of the group knew a lot about the Nepali culture and they were able to tell us a lot about that. This is something Nir encourages in both ways: He encouraged us to ask for it and encouraged his men to be open and talk about it. They provided us with a lot of care and help. They knew better than we did ourselves how everybody was doing and were there to help us. We were really amazed by that. We all managed the trekking very well. Trekking (Marlies) Trekking through the Himalaya with 13 Dutch girls: living in a country of which half is below sea level, it is hard to imagine what it is like to walk through mountain ranges with such deep valleys, steep paths and peaks as high as seven kilometres. Even though all of us were well prepared, we needed some days to get accustomed to the altitude and Nepali flat (aka not flat at all). With the guidance and helpfulness of our guides this was a great experience! They were always there to answer our questions, help us cross a waterfall or serve us some cookies at moments of need ? Thanks to them this trip turned into an unforgettable (and team-building) experience for all of us – with many already dreaming of or planning to come back one day for another Himalaya trek (of course with the guys from Peace Nepal Treks again!). Organization skills of Peace Nepal Treks (Marthe) The trek we did with 13 girls from the Netherlands was a great success, especially because it was so well organised by Peace Nepal Treks. The porters took really good care of us in carrying our backpacks, making the best dinners and telling interesting stories about the Nepally life. I still have good memories about us singing in al different kind of languages when we were walking on the hilly roads and next to deep cliffs, this really adds up a lot of fun and keeps us going also during some heavy moments. It was not all easy going. During the rain season it was quite rough sometimes, but the little peaks trough the clouds at the beautiful (!) landscape, the nice meals, the cosy chats around the fireplace and the experience as such made it al worth it. For sure I am coming back, Nepal is a wonderful and interesting country! Himalaya-Thank-You-Song (Marga) Both the Nepali and the Dutch liked to sing during the trek. Therefore, the night before the last day of the trek we sang a song to thank everybody who joined us during the trip! The song indicates some of the many events our unforgettable adventurous trip had… TRIP DAY-TO-DAY PART II (CARIEN) After the trekking our program wasn’t over because we headed to the Chitwan-park and the Namo Buddha resort. The toughest of us went Rafting in between kathamdu&chitwan, which was pretty awesome! In Chitwan we had unfortunately a lot of rain, which made it a less interesting experience in my opinion. However if you haven’t seen animals in the wild then you should definitely go. After our safari-tour in Chitwan we went to the Namo Buddha-resort, which was very luxurious and was a cherry on the cake on our adventure in Nepal. Early in the morning we went to the Namo Buddha temple and witnessed a morning ritual of the monks and also had breakfast there. It was a really cool experience and we learned a lot about the Buddhism in that way. When we headed back to Kathmandu the end of our journey lies in front of us but we had the opportunity to see some highlights of the cities around Kathmandu first. In the evening we made a party in the local Tom&Jerry bar and we made it of course a bit late (don’t tell NirJ ). After spending 18 days with my friends I said goodbye to them on their last day and stayed in Nepal for a couple more days. I was so fortunate to be able to travel with Nir to his village “ThuloPharsel” in the hills South East of Kathmandu. We went on a local bus and the road was wobbly but adventurous! I saw some great views during the journey: small villages and almost every acre is set in terraces where corn was growing and houses are built. We reached the village on the end of the day and were greeted by lots of people. Since Nir is known in the village but doesn’t comes around that often, everybody is curious for his stories and of course what he brought with him. His family’s house is very old (around 60 years old) and traditionally built against the hills. The buffaloes and goats stand next to the house and the chickens walk around. I was familiar with both neighbours as Lanam and Autar were also guides during the trek. In between the houses was a big playground for all the kids around and they were very happy with the balloons I brought. Sometimes it was difficult to communicate since I didn’t speak the language but Nir was a good help and using your hands & feet always works and can result in hilarious misunderstandings. The second day I went with Nir around in the village. I had a look around in the Shree Mahankal school project; although the children were free I met some of them who were hanging around there. After that we had to say ‘hi’ to everybody around and of course drink tea, some homebrewed beer or liquor or have something to eat (It was a bit like the following part of one of my favourite movies:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzGXADA4ZiY&feature=related). At the end of the day I saw a lot of the surroundings and met a lot of people. I really experienced how life in the village is and how peaceful people live there. In the evening I enjoyed the coolness of the night and when in bed I once woke up from the snorting of the buffalo but I slept again. In order to go back to Kathmandu, Nir decided to hit the road on foot in order to have a nice walk around and to avoid the wobbly roads. It was a beautiful day and I saw again really great views, since it was warm we were lucky that a jeep crossed us, which took us to a place where we took a taxi. It was a great experience to have a look around in the village. Thank you for this amazing trip! We wish you and Peace Nepal treks all the best. Regards,See less...

EVEREST GORAKSHEP (5,165M) CRICKET ON APRIL 2009 A massive thanks to Nir Lama and all the Peace Nepal Treks team. Hiring you was one of the single best decisions I made during the entire planning stage of this project. It quite simply could not have happened without your skill, determination, support and professionalism. We all owe you a debt of gratitude and I could not recommend your services more highly.

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK – 19 DAYS When we originally booked our trip into the Himalayas with a very highly recommended Peace Nepal Treks, we opted for the 15 day Everest Base Camp trek complete with the Lukla fly-in. However, the bad weather that prevented us from flying from Kathmandu was a definite blessing. Sitting on the airport floor I could tell that Bill, our guide, was somewhat agitated. “Boring,” he kept muttering. “Weather may be bad all week” he added.... See more We’d heard about the recent bad weather in Nepal that had played havoc with trekking and we heaved a sigh at the prospect of returning to Kathmandu airport every day for a week. Then Bill showed us the alternative: The Jiri walk-in was the route that trekkers and mountaineers used to take before the Hillary-Tenzing airstrip was built in 1964. It would take 6 or 7 extra days trekking to get to Lukla’s altitude but by then we would be fitter, stronger, more acclimatized and much less vulnerable to sickness. That was all the persuasion that we needed. My advice to any would-be trekkers who are thinking of flying to Lukla before starting the trek: DONT! From the very first day it was obvious that we’d made the right choice and for that we thank our guide, Bill. The extra 5 days from Jiri was chock full of fantastic people (both Nepali and foreigners), amazing untouched scenery & wonderful food. (The Sherpa Stew was a delight) The first few days were undoubtedly the hardest but by the time we reached Namche (3440 meters) we were fit as fiddles and proud as punch. And then there was Bill and Maila, our guide and porter. It simply wouldn’t have been the same without them. They were a breath of fresh air; honest, funny, informative, caring and utterly reliable, far from the falseness of the multi groups belonging to the corporate travel companies. Even when we were a pain in the backside (as i’m sure we often were) their patience and understanding never wavered. Maila never once complained about our stupidly overweight baggage that he had to carry, even when he was suffering from a swollen ankle. My offers to carry my own pack were always met with a dismissive wave and a huge grin. By the time we reached Namche we had learned that their advice concerning health and fitness was of the greatest importance. WE TRUSTED THEM. We followed the rules: don’t drink alcohol higher than 3000 meters, take your rest and acclimatization days drink plenty of water and go s-l-o-w-l-y…And play the occasional game of “Dumbled”. We had no need for diamox, walking sticks, thermals or the silly Lukla fly-in. We had them. Simple Simple dimple. From the first steps of Jiri to the final steps at Everest Base Camp we never had so much as a headache or a bout of dizziness and for that we must give credit to Bill & Myla. The whole of descend (5 days) made us feel very smiley with a quiet sense of accomplishment and again we must credit this to Bill and Myla. OK, much of the effort, the sweat and the aching and the despair were ours, but we couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you very much Bill, Maila and Nir for an unforgettable experience. And to anyone considering a trek in Nepal I cannot recommend Peace Nepal Treks highly enough. Guys it was amazingSee less...

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK, OCTOBER 2011 We are extremely grateful for the work accomplished by Nir and his team. We were 4 friends arriving to Kathmandu and Nir directly took care of us from the airport with a warm hello. We did the trek of the Everest Base Camp. It was an amazing experience that we lived with our guide Bil that became our friend. On the way we’ve seen some magic landscapes and we’ve met some very nice people from the country but also lot foreigners trekking like ... See moreus. We had some very nice moments sharing our experience of Nepal with these people from completely different origin. To be surrounded by these monsters that are the huge mountains of the Himalaya is a great experience. Even if it became a bit hard to breathe in the end especially because we are not at all experienced in this kind of things, we really enjoyed this trek. And finally I would say that this is part of the trip: “no pain no game” ? we finally had to shorten the trip (quicker way back to Lukla and Kathmandu, and earlier flight to Switzerland) because of a death that happened in my family at home. Nir managed extremely well all the administrative things related to that. And Bil and Nir behaved like real friends in this difficult moment of my life. Because of all these points, I strongly recommend Peace Nepal Trek for your trip in Nepal. We kept in contact with Nir and BilSee less...
