We were fortunate enough that weather permitted our flight to take off and what we saw was astonishing. Simrik was the airline and we took off from Kathmandu after a few days ago our attempt was failed due to bad weather. Even the day 25...More
A heaven for the mountaineers! The trek to EBC from Lukla takes around 7-8 days including acclimatisation days and is one of it's own kind. I was taken aback by the beauty and thrill of the experience! Simply speechless!
The was the single best thing I've ever done!

Unforgettable, it think this word describes everything necessary. We've had such a good time with Tom during our trek here. Now totally clear, why a guide is obligatory. The acclimatization was tough. On day 4 I remember we've had some problems but the team did...More

I personally would not worry about emergency access on the EBC trek. You are never that far from people and phones or internet. But if you really want to be (almost) always able to make a phone call sat phones are the way to go. For Nepal your cheapest option is the Thuraya network (you can get a pay as you go SIM) and Thuraya phones (currently around 1000 US$ depending on where you buy)
Did i see Mount Everest from Plane? (5 Replies)
I was just wondering if i saw Mount Everest or not from the plane en route to Lhasa from Chengdu. I took a picture but can't work out whether or not it was everest as its not from the "normal" view. I know its quite a distance away though so was just wondering if it is possible to see it? Amazing views from the plane anway even if it wasnt Everest itself

Trekking with kids (7 Replies)

We would like to trek for about 5-6 days, see som off Kathmandu and visit chitwan national park. Anybody done something similar with kids? What's your experience? Would love to see Mount Everest but am I correct to think that the tracks around the annapurna circuit would be easier? Would I be better to...More
