The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is the most popular trek in Nepal, leading to the base of the world’s tallest and most iconic mountain, Mt. Everest (8,848 meters/29,029 feet). The trek goes through beautiful mountain valleys, high passes, famous Sherpa settlements and exotic flora and fauna. During the trek, there are splendid views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam and other peaks.

Everest Base camp trek Another exciting aspect of the trek is experiencing Sherpa culture, including their traditional villages, shrines and historic sites.Starting from Lukla, you enter into the Sagarmatha National Park and walk throughbeautiful valleys. The trek takes you through the fascinating towns of Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Tengboche and Pangboche, where the local people still follow traditional cultural and spiritual lifestyles. Several monasteries and Chhortens are the symbols of their beliefs and they are highly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

Everest Base camp trek You gradually gain elevation as the trail continues over glaciers and moraines,until you reach Gorakshep, following about a week of hiking. This is the launching point for both Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar mountain. Located at over 5000 meters, your walking will be paced by your physical fitness and acclimatization. Nepal Hiking Trek recommends that you include some extra days in your trip because flights out of Lukla airport can experience long delays and cancellations, even for cloud cover.

    Earlier this year my wife and I had our honeymoon in Nepal. After talking with some friends we chose to go with Hari as our guide. This proved to be an excellent choice and we would happily do it again. All told we spent a month in Nepal and Hari arranged everything for us from EBC trek to our trip to Chitwan. Hari is knowledgeable, hard working and fun. He picked great places for us to stay and his English was great as well. We found this to be very important after speaking with other trekkers that got sick and had difficulty getting their guides to understand they were having altitude sickness. There is no other service I would recommend besides Nepal Hiking Trek! Thank you Hari!!!!!

    We made trip to Everest Base Camp in April 2017.  This is our first time to EBC. But with Nepal Hiking Trek we had no worries. Hari and team guided us to EBC and back to kathmandu safely. 

    Hari is a cheerful person. Me and him sing resham firiri and dance along the trek. 

    Thank you for made our dream come true. Hope see you soon hari.

    As soon as we arrived in Kathmandu we were made to feel very welcomed by Hari. He sorted out our trek very quickly, smoothly and for a great price compared to many competitors.

    The trek itself was fantastic and we had a great guide (Raj) who we would definitely recommend. He spoke great English and was extremely informative and very caring. Words can't describe the views of the Himalayas and I urge you to go and experience them yourself and use Nepal Hiking Trek!

    Great administration and communication from start to finish.
    Nothing was ever too much. Did we encounter problems of course at that height for that period, but they were all dealt with in a first class manner.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending this highly capable young man and his team to any future travellers.
    Finally the price was fair and it was good to know the money was staying in the local economy.

    I did two hikes with Hari (Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp) and not only was he the best guide I’ve had but I made a lifelong friend as well. During the hike Hari never pressured me to go at a certain speed, stay at a certain guesthouse or choose a meal for me. I could go at my own pace (which was fast) stay where I wanted and eat whatever I felt like. I can’t say enough about how accommodating he was. He knew the trails like the back of his hand, especially the Everest Trek, since he’s done it over a hundred times. It was one of the most magically experiences of my life and I’ll never forget it. 

    Before I met Hari I did one hike alone, the Annapurna Circuit, and after a scary experience I vowed never to hike alone again. I’m lucky to have found Hari, who is someone I fully trust since he has years of experience. Don’t choose any other company than Hari’s.

    Back in 2014 myself and my girlfriend travelled to Nepal to complete the Everest Basecamp trek. After arriving in Kathmandu we found Hari's company to have very reasonable prices compared to most of the guide prices we'd be quoted before we arrived. Throughout the trek Hari was a charming guide, very funny, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

    As it was part of a larger trip, we hadn't really allocated that much time in Nepal (2 weeks) so it was advised against doing the trek but we did it anyway and had a great time doing so and thank Hari so much for making it such an exciting trip. He's a great guide and a great bloke.

    I have done three treks in Nepal with Taralal Dharel: Everest Base Camp, Langtang and Upper Mustang, which were all great (and safe) adventures, thanks to Taralal. He knows the ways, knows the teahouse owners, is always eager to help....and keeps you laughing. During some tough times Taralal even carried my day pack, but please don't ask him to do that! His good nature and sense of humor are a big plus on these long treks.

    He is also good in a pinch and can effortlessly change plans when circumstances change. For example, he was my guide when the earthquake hit Nepal in April 2015. He calmly managed my safe return to Kathmandu and ultimately my exit from Nepal, even as he faced the loss of his village home and as wife was in her final days of pregnancy. On a less dramatic occasion, I developed a foot infection from an earlier surgery and we had to cut a trek short. Without missing a beat, Taralal diverted us quickly back and developed a substitute non-hiking vacation for the rest of my stay that included Chitwan and Pokhara.

    I am proud to know Taralal and consider him a good, lifelong friend. I can not recommend him highly enough.
