Tour/Trekking Co. for Everest Base Camp (Tibet side)

Dear All

Does anyone have a recommended tour company that they have use for tour&trekking to Everest Base Camp (north side)? I have read some not so nice reviews of a few companies and would love a good recommendation.

Thanks

toursofitbet, tibet-tours-travel etc. It is better to choose reliable Tibet-based travel company to organize the tour. I think the trekking tour to Everest Base Camp could be very costy and it is not easy to trek at that high place. Good luck!

Hi,

Sorry to invade your post.

I am also looking into doing this for charity at the end of next year. There are so many companies that do it, I just don't know how to go about choosing? Any tips?

I recommend using Tibetan owned agencies that are based in Lhasa. A surprising number of agencies that arrange tours to Tibet are actually based in mainland China (far from Tibet). Travel responsibly by choosing to use Tibetan owned businesses. The following Tibetan owned and staffed travel agencies all have good reputations for arranging travel in Tibet:

Snow Lion Tours

Tibet Highland Tours

Mystic Tibet Tours

Tibetan Shaman Tours

Road to Tibet

I'm not sure how big is your group, but I have recently just returned from EBC and I used a local guide. I found Sanjib's contact through the helpful reviews via Tripadvisor and I am glad that I chose to book my trip with him. Sanjib is very experienced, which ensured that our plans went smoothly. When we were stranded in Kathmandu airport due to poor weather conditions, he sought the cooperation of another guide to charter another flight the following morning, just so that we were ensured a flight. During the trek, Sanjib shared his in-depth knowledge of the country's rich culture and history. Whilst Sanjib would not necessarily explain why us tourists should avoid certain food or drinks, I later realised that his wisdom comes from the years of experience - as I suffered terrible altitude sickness even from Namche! It is also thanks to Sanjib's observant self and quick action that saved the life of one of team members, a couple of hours late and it would have been fatal. Sanjib and his team of porters were also very patient and helpful - the porters that he has worked with for over 10 years - would return to join us after dropping off our backpacks at our destination. I am not the first, but I affirm that the reviews of the previous trekkers - he is awesome and that made a difference to this one lifetime experience! Check out www.nepaliguideinfo.com.
