I recently returned from a trek to Everest Base Camp with Tusker Trail. We were getting ready for our final push up to Base Camp from Gorak Shep when the 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal, followed up with a snow blast from the avalanche that killed several climbers at base camp. I cannot say enough good things about Tusker Trail guides... More

We woke up early in the morning hoping to see the sunrise. No luck. It was so dark. Our driver took us there on the tour bus. It was very cold but it was clear so we were able to walk around to take pictures. This was a dream-come-true for me. I have Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and I was not... More

MY EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK (EBC) EXPERIENCE We Reached the Everest base camp (17700 feet), after 8 days, trekking approx. 32 miles (50 kms), 9 hours a day, taking 12000 plus steps a day. The EBC trek is an extremely challenging but an awesome and beautiful one. In this trek, we were rewarded with both spectacular scenery as well as... More

So lucky to have superb, cloud-free views of Everest - well worth the pre-dawn start to get there. Not as commercialised as I'd feared. Glad I got my souvenirs at Everest Snow Leopard hotel the previous evening.

A wonderful experience in every way thanks to Himalayan Wonders. Having had a very very bad experience with G Adventures( the company, not the guides) only last year, Himalayan Wonders provided first class service, generosity, professionalism, warmth and expertise. They put safety and comfort first unlike G Adventures. If you're thinking of doing this trip, you won't regret it if... More

A journey worth taking by road if you are in Lhasa, as the route to reach Mt. Everest is absolutely stunning. It is nature untouched. I took the route from Lhasa-Yamdrok Lake-Shigatse-Old Tingri-Everest Base Camp (North Face)-Lhasa. Every color here is deeper than usual. And you start seeing the Himalayas various peaks, bit by bit. If you have a patient... More

It is too touristy! There are lots of checking points, and it takes longer time to get there and back. Well the suitable season is April, May, early June, end of August, Sept, October. It depends on the weather actually. But very risky to meet the bad weather in July and August. The road between Shegar and Rongphu gets better... More

It is one of world's amazing place from where you can have superb splendid view of the north face of world's highest mountain - Mt. Everest. You can reach upto base camp by drive, you don't need to trek. While if you are going EBC through Nepal side, then you have to trek for 7 days to reach base camp.... More

The visit to Everest Base Camp is fantastic. Take 15 steps and stop for breath. While there is not much there to actually do, just the fact that you are there is what makes this one of the most amazing spots on earth. Stopped and stayed the night at Rongbuk Monastery - about 5 km away and the highest monastery... More

Seems crazy that you can drive up to Everest Base Camp, and its an iconic journey through a distinctive Tibetan landscape. But it does mean you get up to over 5000m pretty quickly, so take care. Whilst I was comfortable at 3500-4000m that a lot of Tibet sits at I really noticed the difference going to 5000m. I found that... More
