Mount Everest Base Camp Hike

Mount Everest Base Camp Hike

I wish to trek to Mount Everest Base Camp on a future planned visit to Kathmandu, Nepal. How would I go about finding a reputable guide/porter at Kathmandu to assist me with the trek? Is there, perhaps, a reputable institution there that would be able to assist?

Has anyone done this before, namely not used a travel agency to trek to Base Camp? What was your experience like?

Thank you!

There are many many many people in Kathmandu who will arrange for your flight to Lukla, National park permit and provide a guide. we met a guy who was going without porter or guide but he had done it before. For the first time I'd use a guide and porter and although prices is always important, do be aware of the provisions made for guide/porter. We would not use anyone who was not fully equipped and looked after. Namaste.

Hi, we used a local agent but booked before we went, the gentleman's name was Babu, I shall see if I can remember the trading name of his company. It was far more reasonable than the big tour operators for sure but still very good service. I will get back to you ASAP.
