Choosing Highland Expeditions to guide my trek to Everest Base Camp was definitely the right decision! They handled all aspects of my trip with top-notch professionalism and genuine care. I felt safe and supported by them the entire time with an itinerary that allowed me to immerse myself in the experience without ever feeling rushed or pushed too far out of my comfort zone. Trekking to Everest Base Camp is demanding both physically and mentally at times but my guide always gave me confidence and helped me stay the course to meet my goal with a positive attitude. Highland Expeditions truly cares for their guests and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering a trip with them.

I booked my trip with Highland Expeditions as a solo female traveler. Every aspect of the trip from booking, arriving in Nepal, the time in Kathmandu, the trek itself, and departure were handled so expertly and smoothly. I could not have asked for anything more. The team was great and covered everything. They were a very professional company to work with. I would definitely book with them again.

Highland Expeditions organized my recent trip to Nepal for the Khumbu 3 Peaks trek. From the beginning of the booking process to the end of a very successful trip, the quality of the service provided by Passang, the guides and the support team was excellent.
The many years of experience in Highland Expeditions is totally geared to benefit their clients in every way.
I highly recommend them and if I were to return to Nepal, they are the company I would use again, no question..

We did a 3 week epic, challenging and at times, extreme, trek along the Rolwalling Valley, climbing Yolang Ri and crossing the Tashi Laptcha Pass. Highland Exp looked after us incredibly well providing for all our needs. We had an amazing team from the every experienced guides, to the kitchen team and porters all of whom were both delightful and hard working. We highly recommend Highland Expeditions for their professionalism, friendliness and ability to lead safely and knowledgeably over some challenging parts of Nepal.

I’ve had an excellent time with Highland, the professional behavior before the trip even started helped get all my questions answered and they made sure all applicable paperwork was done in a timely manner. Any changes I had they easily accommodated without hassle. During the trek/climb I got altitude sickness and they were patient in going slow with me cause I wasn’t moving so well. I enjoyed the accommodations that were setup during the trip and food was great. Once I became sick they attended to me to make sure I was eating the best possible foods to give me energy and offer rehydration salt mix, pretty much doing whatever they could to get me through the trip and up to the summit of lobuche. My plan is to continue doing climbing trips with highland expeditions and only these guys since they were so perfect this past trip. Passang tsering Sherpa will do everything to make sure you have the best trip, contact him directly passang@highlandexpeditions.com

Passang was an excellent resource before and during the trip. Guides Arjun, Kunga and Jeet were great- very knowledgeable, patient, and going above and beyond to make our trip comfortable and a success.
Highly recommended, and I would use this company for any future trips.

Highland Expeditions were excellent. We had a month-long trip through the remote Rolwaling valley and from the porters to the Sherpas they were excellent. Highest quality food, advice and service throughout. I doubt we could have found a better company in Nepal and would not hesitate to use them again.

We booked our hike to EBC with highland expedition. Owner ( Passang) was always available to answer any question prior to trip. He organised highly skilled team of guides and porters. Two of the guides were Arjun and Koonga. They displayed amazingly detailed knowledge about the area but not just that they were so familiar with altitude sickness. During course of hike, most in our group experienced altitude sickness. They were ready with remedies.
I can't recommend highland expedition highly enough. If you can get team of Arjun, Koonga and Jeet. This trio is just amazing, goes above and beyond for your comfort.

We planned and prepared quite a bit for our EBC Trek, but we could not possibly have known all of the details and nuances of the trek. For this reason, we were extremely blessed and fortunate to have chosen Highland Expeditions as our tour guide. Passang, who leads the company, provided us with all the information that we needed and once we were in Nepal, He took care of every detail and that included anything we needed with the hotel, COVID tests, or any special arrangement. He was always there and clearly cared very much for our well being. Once on the Trek, we we given equally good care by Arjun, Kunga and Jeet who's thoughtfulness and caring for our well being was very much appreciated. Due in great part to the support that we received, we all made it to base camp and without injury. We are a senior group and we all consider the trip a great success. We are very grateful to Highland Expeditions for all of their efforts. I give them the highest possibly recommendation!

I climbed Lobuche East Peak with Highland Expeditions in April 2022 and the entire experience right from the beginning to the very end was truly amazing. The entire climb was managed with care and expertise. The summit climb was exhilarating and exhausting but our guide Sonam helped us through the mountain and was kind towards us. This certainly made a big contribution to my summiting.

I would sign up for another trip with them in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.
