“Everest Base Camp”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

my visit to Everest Base Camp was with Gecko's Adventures. This was a very well organised trip.
Profesional guides we were luck with the weather. However it was sad when we arrived because the 16 sherpas were killed the day before. The views were outstanding and the whole experience will never be forgotten. Do be fit to get the best out of this trip.I can highly recommend it.
One of the highlights of my life.

“Great effort, but worth it”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We recently returned from doing a trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. We traveled with Tusker Trail. Their organization is second to none. They take their own kitchen staff and prepare all your meals. This is extremely important as hygiene is questionable everywhere in Nepal. Considering the stress of the environment, the altitude and constantly breathing yak compost, you need all the advantages you can get. The hiking is strenuous, but so are dealing with the accommodations. Expect no heat in your room and limited or questionable bathrooms. Again- sanitation is always suspect. Nevertheless, Nepal is extremely beautiful and the mountains magnificent. The people are beautiful and absolutely wonderful. Reaching Base Camp is tough, but doable for most people in good shape as long as you don't have altitude problems (take diamox, drink lots of water,and go slowly!). An incredible trek!

“A Must Do - a lifetime experience”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

To view the North Face of Everest from the Base Camp (at 5200 metres) is truly an unforgettable experience ... it is simply stunning and magnificent. To get to the tourist "Base Camp", it is around 10kms from Rongbuk Monastery. Your guide / driver can take you only as far as the "tent camp" (where guests can stay overnight) which is 3kms on from Rongbuk. From there you need to catch a bus (no charge) which takes you the rest of the way to Base Camp. The actual climbers base camp is further up the valley but the area is restricted and needs "another" special permit to go beyond the tourist base camp ... however, you can see the climbers base camp in the distance from this area. The Base Camp provides absolutely stunning & spectacular views of the North Face of Everest (or Qomolangma in Tibetan) and the Rongbuk Glacier ... just pray for clear weather. Best views are usually in the morning and late afternoon but the weather in this region can change very quickly. In the morning, it could be a total white-out but by the afternoon the skies could be clear. It took us 4 days from Lhasa via Gyantse, Shigatse, Shegar & then Rongbuk to reach Base Camp - acclimatising along the way which is absolutely critical at this very high altitude as is drinking around 3 - 4 litres of water everyday. All worth it in the end ... unforgettable.
