For: • Fantastic trek for mountains, villages, culture, adventure • Gokyo Valley has less crowds & is different in a number of ways from the main Khumbu valley • Gokyo Ri experience and views were fantastic • EBC is a thrill although it is basically only a sign surrounded by tourists during the non-climbing season • views from Gorek Shep...

Travelled as organised group of 10 Australians. Wonderful trip but company G Adventures neglected safety nearly causing the death of two Trekkers due to altitude sickness and poor staff training. The response was to say it was too expensive to carry oxygen. The offer of a free return trip declined as no changes to OHS. Do not travel with G... More

Stayed at base camp before and after the trip up the North Col of Everest. Desolate and sparse, enthrall one and brilliant views. They keep the climbers and day visitors separate with an armed vehicle and checkpoints. Fantastic to be on Everest!

The trip was poorly organized by C TRIP tour agency in China and costed more (airplane tickets-train tickets excluded) than the other european members of the group paid (airtickets included) for coming all the way from Europe! The transfers were made with a very old dirty mini van, without AC. With that very same 20-year old mini van we travelled... More

So its 4 hours offroad each way. The scenery is pretty incredible all the way. We went up in a people carrier so probably why I'm not much of a fan of it. When we got there, there wasnt anything there except a little village and a local hotel/restaurant. Got a few good pictures but worth 8 hours travel, i... More

We visited Mt. Everest base camp during 2014 June . CITS Tibet travel agency was our tour operator Initially we thought a lot whether to go or not, considering the altitude sickness and other risks. But I am glad we did it. It was a memorable trip for a life time. From Shigatse we traveled one whole day to reach... More

So, if you're looking at this review you're probably thinking about doing the Everest base camp trek! You'll read about how hard it is, about the dangers of altitude sickness, and probably about the lack of toilet paper!!! Do not let this put you off. This is an incredible experience! We booked with Heian treks in Kathmandu for the 14... More

The top of the world, Mt. Everest (8848m) is one of the most awaiting peaks and people dream to conquer it. And there is no any place in the world more spectacular than in the Everest region. It is where four of the world’s six tallest peaks Mt. Everest (8848), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) Mt. Makalu (8481m), and Cho Oyu (8201m).... More

NO superlatives can do Everest justice especially on the clear blue sky days we viewed it in October, you cannot take your eyes off it! Everest is 5 star However Base Camp was less so..... we arrived about one week after the tents had gone and it was deserted, but for some debris and the fluttering prayer flags and the... More
