    • Do I need special travel insurance for trekking in Nepal?

      Yes. Our company only covers insurance for our team members. We recommend you buy a travel insurance in your country. Make sure your travel insurance covers adventure activities over a certain altitude (4000 m) and covers emergency medical as well as helicopter rescue and evacuation.

      Most importantly, if you are trekking in the mountainous region of Nepal, then you should plan ahead about possible challenges, especially altitude sickness, ill related health issues, accidents, flight delays etc. In such cases, the only possible way out of the mountains is helicopter rescue. So, we recommend you to have a travel insurance policy that covers the helicopter evacuation cost and medical services in hospitals while trekking in Nepal.

    • Do I need any extra documents?

      All you need is a copy of your travel insurance, a copy of your passport and 2 passport size photos while travelling in Nepal. You are required to bring photos for trek permits.

    Expenditures and Travel

    • How much spending money do I need for Everest Base Camp Trek?

      Well, our Everest Base Camp Trek cost is all inclusive of your accommodation, meals, permits and other official expenses. (See price includes and excludes section for more detail). Besides this the other expenses depends totally on your spending habits. In general, you can spend $10 – $15 per person per day for lunch and dinner in Kathmandu. During the trek a $15 – $25 per person per day is sufficient to buy bottled water, snacks, chocolate bars, hot and cold drinks, Wi fi, showers etc. You might not need the mentioned amount too however it is always better to have the cash handy with you.

      Likewise, if you like to offer tips/gratuity or give donations to monasteries, you can bring along a small amount of pocket money extra during the trek which could be local or your own currency. (It’s optional).

      Please note: Everest region is comparatively more expensive than any other regions of Nepal. Being the mountainous region of Nepal without access to road transport in many parts especially at higher altitude regions, consumer goods are transported by helicopter, airplanes, horses, mules and porters that leads to high-cost at these places.

    • Is it possible to reserve a trip now and pay a deposit later or do I have to pay a deposit at booking/reservation?

      You are required to pay 30% deposit at the time of booking and rest of the amount prior to the trip departure date.

    • Can I use credit cards in the places I visit in trekking?

      Most places in trekking route doesn’t accept credit cards. Though, there are few ATM booths in Namche Bazaar, they are highly unreliable. So, we highly recommend you to convert currencies into Nepalese Rupees or withdraw money from ATMs in Kathmandu before going to trek.

      Also, note that money exchanger does not accept credit cards in Nepal. Besides, few shops in Kathmandu accept credit cards for your purchases.

    Preparation and Fitness Level

    • What should be my preparation and fitness level for Everest Base Camp Trek?

      You don’t need any special kind of technical skill or training for Everest Base Camp Trek. If you are fit, healthy and can walk up to 5-8 hours a day, then you can trek to Everest Base Camp.

      While trekking to Everest Base Camp, you hike in the trail up to higher altitude of 5600 m. Likewise, trekking in higher altitude is more strenuous than lower altitude due to lower oxygen level, decreased air pressure and density in these regions. Your body needs some time to adapt in new climate and cope with decreased oxygen level at higher altitude, which is called acclimatization.

      So, we suggest you to do regular physical exercise, running or jogging activities to enhance your fitness level and keep yourself in good health. To enjoy your trek to the fullest, you can start doing an hour of aerobic exercises 3 to 4 times per week before 2-3 months the trek commences. This will surely enhance your stamina and endurance required for the trek. With sheer determination, courage and mental strength, you can accomplish this trek successfully.

      Note: For aspiring trekkers with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease, we highly encourage to inform us while booking or consult doctor before the trip.

    • How difficult is trekking in the Everest region?

      It’s all relative and depends on your preparation and fitness levels. If you frequently hike long distances and have prior experience of trekking in hills with backpacks, you will find this trek easier. On the other side, if you are not used to trekking, outdoor activities or physical exercises, then you will find it difficult.

      Trekking in the Everest region is challenging, yet rewarding. Only when you accept and overcome challenges, you will find growth, build your strength and character in life. Depending on your route, usually the trek consists of 5-8 hours of hiking each day with a professional guide. So, trekking in Everest region is achievable for most people, but you need both preparation and obsession with the mountains.

    • Do you know how many miles the Everest Base Camp trek is?

      Total distance of the Everest Base Camp trek is about 97 miles (156 km).

    • Is there any age limit for trekking in Nepal?

      There’s no age limit for trekking in Nepal as long as you are physically and mentally fit. However, for trekkers below age 18, you should be accompanied by your parents or elder guardians during the trek.

    Accomodation and Communication

    • What kind of Hotel can I expect in Kathmandu?

      We use Nepali standard three star hotel accommodations in Kathmandu. You will be accommodated in standard room on a twin-sharing basis including breakfast during your stay.

      Furthermore, if you need to stay extra nights in the hotel or need upgraded to 4 stars and 5 star hotel accommodations, we can arrange it as you wish for a reasonable price.

    • What sort of accommodation conveniences are available on the trek?

      We use tea houses/lodges for our meals and overnight stay on the trek. Usually, local families manage teahouses in villages offering home cooked meals and room to sleep. The accommodation can be very basic, and functional. The rooms are clean, single/double rooms or a dormitory that include mattress, quilt or blanket for your convenient stay. Usually, in most teahouses the washroom/bathroom are outside the room and shared as well.

    • What sort of accommodation is available at Manthali, Ramechhap?

      The accommodation conveniences at guesthouses in Manthali would remain very basic. In general, it consists of a standard room on a twin sharing basis. Due to less flow of tourists in this region, the hotels/ guesthouses in this region are not upgraded like in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

    • Is there a possibility of getting separate rooms on the trek? If so how much extra will this cost?

      The single supplement cannot be guaranteed earlier due to overflow of trekkers in peak season. Again, when there is a decline in the number of guests, the teahouses can easily provide a private room without any additional cost. In particular, the accommodation during the trek will remain very basic, comfortable on a twin sharing basis and sometimes dormitory. On the other side, we can assure a separate room in major cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara on the trek.

    • Is it possible to swap my accommodation from mountain guest house to hotels in Kathmandu?

      Swapping the accommodation from mountain guest house to Kathmandu is NOT possible. This Everest Base Camp Trek 14 days package includes only 2 nights accommodation in Kathmandu. In case of unforeseen circumstances such as flight cancellation, your personal health or any reasons, if you decide to discontinue the trip and arrive early in Kathmandu then you will need an extra night accommodation in Kathmandu. In such cases, we can make the arrangement of accommodation conveniences but you need to pay the supplemental charges.

    • Is camping allowed in the trek?

      No. There is no need for camping as we can find many tea houses for food and lodging in the trek.

    • What type of toilet/bathroom facilities are available in the teahouses/guesthouses?

      You can find western style flushing toilets as well as adjacent squat toilets in the teahouses/guesthouses. Mostly, the bathrooms are not attached to the individual rooms and are shared.

    • Where do we go toilet along the trail?

      You can use the toilet facilities provided by guest houses along the trail. Otherwise, if you arrive in places without guesthouses or public toilet in those regions during the trek, then you need to find some privacy and experience outdoor toilet adventure.

    • Do I need to bring toilet paper for the trek?

      Yes, we suggest you bring toilet paper along with hand sanitizer and towel for your conveniences. Indeed, toilet papers are available to buy on the guesthouses. So, no need to worry about it a lot.

    • Are hot showers/wash facilities available on the trek?

      Well, it depends on where you stay. Most teahouses in the trekking region provide hot showers at considerable cost. At higher elevation, the water gets frozen most of the time. So, you can get a bucket of hot water by paying an extra $2- $5 for hot showers.

    • Are there any laundry services available on the trek?

      Some teahouses provide laundry services for payment of an extra charge. But, it’s not guaranteed that your clothes will dry on the same day. There is a possibility that you can wash some clothes during acclimatization days. However, we suggest you pack enough clothes on the trek and wash them after returning back to Kathmandu.

    • Are there any means of communication and internet access while trekking to Everest?

      Yes. There are telephone services and 3G coverage available in the Everest region. Most trekking routes have been equipped with internet access and telephone services. 

      However, being a remote mountainous region, there may be poor internet connection and uninterrupted coverage cannot be guaranteed. Likewise, our trekking guide has a cell phone from which you can make a phone call. Also, we recommend you to buy a local sim card, Ncell, in Kathmandu and use it for communication and internet access while trekking to Everest.

    Foods and Drinking Water

    • What kind of foods are offered on the trek?

      We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Trek. Most importantly, it is mandatory for all trekkers to take breakfast and dinner at the teahouse where you stay overnight. Likewise, lunch will be served at teahouses en route where you can order food as per your choice.

      Usually, the typical Nepali food: dal (lentils), bhat (rice) and tarkari (vegetable curry) are served on the trek. These foods are highly nutritious and give you sufficient energy for the trek. Besides, other typical meals include delicious vegetarian foods such as pasta, noodles, french fries, boiled eggs, pancakes, omelets, toast, momo, garlic soup and many more dishes. In addition, we let trekkers choose hot drinks from the menus at the tea houses. Also, you can find meat dishes, but we suggest you to choose vegetarian meals for health reasons as the local meat available is not hygienic.

    • Is the food in the mountain region prepared to international standard in terms of safety?

      Yes. The food provided at tea houses during the trek are very safe and hygienic. We recommend you to eat local food, vegetarian meal and avoid meat for your health reasons. Please follow the suggestions of our trekking guide when ordering food in the tea houses.

    • Is it safe to drink water in the trekking region?

      For health concerns, it is unsafe to drink all types of natural sources of water in the trekking region of Nepal. So, we suggest you drink bottled mineral water, boiled water, and use purification tablets or iodine for tap water. Another possible option is using SteriPEN for water purification.

      You can purchase bottled water and boiled water at the tea houses in the trek region. As you sweat a lot when hiking to higher elevation, you must drink plenty (4-5 liters) of drinking water, hot drinks and soups each day. So, make sure you are hydrated well to avoid altitude sickness and muscle cramps in the trek.

    • Is there any problem regarding foods for vegetarian during the trek?

      This is not a problem at all because mostly the mountain teahouses serve vegetarian meals. In addition, all the meals we serve during the trek include vegetarian dishes. Moreover, we highly suggest our trekkers to avoid meat dishes as the local meat is not hygienic and refrigerated properly.

      Note: Please inform us if you have any diet restriction prior to the trek start.

    Transportation

    • Do we book our own international flights to and from Nepal?

      Yes. You should book your own international flights to and from Nepal.

    • What mode of transportation do you use while trekking in Everest region?

      For Kathmandu airport pick up and drop off, we use our own private vehicle. Moreover, it depends on a group size, and we mostly use cars, minibus, vans or 4WD SUV as means of transportation for reaching domestic airport and city sightseeing tours.

      The government of Nepal imposed a very high tax rate (more than 200%) for importing automobiles. That’s why, Indian companies manufactured vehicles such as Toyota Hiace, Mahindra Scorpio etc. are widely used in Nepal compared to vehicles from top luxury brands. This means the mode of transportation will remain basic, yet comfortable and convenient, while travelling in Nepal.

      Everest region is not well upgraded with roadways, and mostly relies on air transport. So, we utilize domestic flights operate from Kathmandu or Manthali airport to reach Lukla airport, the gateway to Everest Base Camp.

      Another reliable mode of transportation in the Everest region is helicopter flight. However, it’s quite expensive than other modes of transportation for regular use.

      Note: Since March 2019, the domestic flight has been shifted to nearby Manthali airport due to increased congestion in Kathmandu airport during peak trekking season. This means Lukla flight will operate from Manthali airport during peak trekking season, spring (March, April, May, October and November). Besides, peak trekking season, all the Lukla flights will operate from Kathmandu airport as usual.

    • What is the alternative option if my flight to and from Lukla is cancelled or delayed?

      The primary modes of air transport in the mountain region are Twin Otter and Dornier. Sometimes, due to bad weather conditions or other technical issues, flights may get cancelled or delayed to and from Lukla. In this case, we can re book your flight for the next day. We highly recommend you to prepare ahead for unforeseen circumstances (flight delay, bad weather) and schedule a couple of extra days for the trek.

      Another possible option is to charter a private helicopter to ensure you don’t miss the deadline for the trek or your international flight. This option is available only if the clients agree to share the cost of helicopter charter among each other. The helicopter takes 5 passengers at a time, and the cost of trekking guide should be shared by trekkers respectively. The helicopter charter from Kathmandu to Lukla costs you extra $2500 in addition to domestic airfare. Similarly, the helicopter charter flight from Manthali to Lukla costs you extra $1800 in addition to domestic airfare.

    • I hear change of Kathmandu – Lukla flights to Ramechhap (Manthali Airport). Is this true?

      Yes, it’s true that Kathmandu Lukla flight operation is shifted to Manthali Airport. Starting from March 2019, especially during peak trekking season, spring (March, April, May) and fall (September, October, November). As per the notice made by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, all the flights from Kathmandu to Lukla have been shifted to Manthali Airport, Ramechhap district due to heavy traffic congestion in Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. The current Lukla flight operation from Manthali airport is more likely to continue in the upcoming year.

    • Is there an option to fly directly from Kathmandu to Lukla airport?

      Well, it depends, and cannot be ensured ahead in peak trekking season, especially autumn (March, April, May) and fall (September, October, November). Some airlines operate their first few flights in the early morning (6 to 7:30 am) directly from Kathmandu to Lukla. If it gets cancelled, there is less likely to reschedule your flight the next day due to limited number of flight operations from Kathmandu to Lukla. So, the best possible option available is flying from Manthali to Lukla airport. In general, it takes about 20 minutes to reach Lukla from Manthali airport.

      On the other hand, besides peak trekking season, spring and fall; most airlines will operate their flight to Lukla from Kathmandu directly. You don’t have to get to Manthali to catch your Lukla flight.

    • Is there a possibility of flying from Lukla to Kathmandu directly after the trek?

      You can fly back from Lukla to Kathmandu directly during monsoon (June, July, August) and winter (December, January, February). These two seasons are considered off trekking time in Nepal, and Lukla flight operates to and from Kathmandu during those times.

      Similarly, during peak trekking season, spring (March, April, May), and fall (September, October, November), the Lukla flights operate directly from Lukla to Manthali airport. During those times, there may be some last flights returning back from Lukla to Kathmandu directly under favorable weather conditions. Usually, the flight takes place after 11 am, and depends upon available landing slots in Kathmandu. However, these aren’t guaranteed earlier. As the best available options, we recommend you fly from Lukla to Manthali airport in peak season.

    • How can I reach Manthali Airport, Ramechhap? Does Airlines provide shuttle services to get from Kathmandu to Manthali?

      You can reach Manthali airport by travelling in a vehicle. The journey is about 4 to 6 hours (depending upon traffic) by road.

      Usually, some airlines companies are providing shuttle services on morning 3 a.m to get to Manthali airport, Ramechhap from Kathmandu (depending upon flight time). If airlines’ shuttle services are not available, Ace the Himalaya has made an arrangement of private vehicles to reach Manthali. Depending upon the group size; an extra cost would be applicable if airlines do not provide any shuttle services. In such cases, we will let you know either at the time of booking or 3 weeks prior to the trip departure date.

      To catch your Lukla flights, you should travel to Manthali early in the morning around 3 am from Kathmandu. This means you need to wake up by 2:30 am, and get yourself ready as you have to transfer at Manthali for Lukla flights. Likewise, if your flight is scheduled early in the morning, then you travel to Manthali one day prior the flight day and stay overnight there.

      Besides, the return journey from Manthali to Kathmandu would remain similar to your outward journey.

    • Does the Kathmandu Lukla return flight land in Manthali or Kathmandu airport?

      Usually, earlier flights operating from Lukla land in Manthali airport. Then, the later ones to Kathmandu if it is scheduled after 11 am, and under favorable weather conditions only. Most importantly, it depends on available landing slots and several other factors.

    • What sort of bus services can I expect from Kathmandu to reach Manthali airport?

      Generally, vehicles such as Toyota Hiace, Mahindra Scorpio etc. that cost more than $70000 in Nepal are used extensively for shuttle services from Kathmandu to Manthali. Manthali is hilly region of Nepal. The roads to reach there are inclined with twist and turn, that’s why Indian company manufactured SUVs and 4WD are widely used for driving on those highways.

      Please do not expect popular luxurious vehicles in western countries like BMW or Mercedes Benz for travelling in Nepal. However, the transportation conveniences provided on the trip would remain comfortable and satisfactory along the journey.

      Similarly, the transport conveniences available for your return journey from Manthali to Kathmandu will be much the same as your outward journey.

    • How much should I pay for private Helicopter charter?

      If you choose to charter a helicopter from Kathmandu to Lukla, it will cost you an extra $2500 in addition to domestic airfare. Similarly, the helicopter charter from Manthali to Lukla costs you extra $1800 in addition to domestic airfare.

      Generally, a helicopter accommodates 5 passenger at a time, which means you can divide your total cost among group members. Note that the cost of trekking guide should be shared by group members. You can make the payment later upon using services in our office via cash or credit card.

      Note: Bank levies a 3.5% service fee for credit card payment.

      Please understand that there is a possibility of Lukla flight delay/cancellation due to bad weather conditions. In such circumstances, if you choose to charter a helicopter flight, then you can claim for travel insurance, provided that your insurance policy covers helicopter rescue under flight delay/cancellation in high altitude regions. Only if you are liable for reimbursement from travel insurance company, we can support you with money receipts for insurance claim.

    • What is the weight limit for Lukla Flight?

      The weight limit is 15 kg/ 33 lbs for Lukla flight including both your duffel bag (10kg/22 lbs) and backpack (5kg/11lbs). For exceeding weight limit, you need to pay an additional $2-$5 per kg in the airport. So, we suggest you to pack your bag carefully considering the weight limits for Lukla flight.

    Season, Weather and Temperatures

    • What is the weather and temperature like in the Everest Region?

      One of the most unpredictable elements of the Everest region is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that can occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help ensure that you come to the Himalayas as well equipped and prepared to face anything.
      Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime hours in the Everest region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. During the day, the thermometer could reach temps as high as 25 C (77 F), only to dip down as low as -20 C (-4 F) in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the month and season.

      Spring – March / April / May / June

      Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Everest region, although because of this, it can become somewhat crowded. One can meet many other Everest climbers during this season and base camp is full of tents. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen and many different species of flowers are visible in the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 20 C (68 F), with a maximum of 25 C (77 F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 C (5 F) in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

      Monsoon – July/August Through Mid-September

      This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it’s rainy as well as dry, that’s why very few people travel during this season.
      There are positive sides of trekking during the monsoon months as the excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it’s also the best season to avoid the crowds. During springtime, the average temperature is 22 C (71.6 F), with a maximum of 30 C (86 F) during sunny days and a minimum of -5 C (23 F) in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

      Autumn – End of September / October / November

      Similar to springtime, autumn in the Everest region is also a crowded season, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, affording incredible mountain views from every angle. The average temperature during the fall is 17 C (62.6 F), with a maximum temperature of 20 C (68 F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 C (5 F) in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

      Winter – December/ January/ February

      Winter starts from mid-December till mid-February. People still like to trek this month due to fewer crowds. View is still good but foggy so having extra days is highly recommended during this period. The average temperature during the winter is 10 C (50 F), with a maximum temperature of 17 C (62.6 F), during sunny days and a minimum of -20 C (-4 F) in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters altitude. The above temperature is based on the outside of the guesthouse temperature. No need to worry about the cold temperature as we provide sleeping bag and extra blanket to make sure our clients are warm enough during the time of need.

    • What is the best time to do Everest Base Camp Trek?

      The following months are the best time to do Everest Base Camp Trek: February, March, April, May, June, October, November and December.

    • What is the temperature rating of the sleeping bag that you lend to trekkers?

      The temperature rating of the sleeping bags that we provide to trekkers are about -10 degree Celsius (14 degree Fahrenheit). Also, our guides can provide you liners or extra blankets if needed.

    Health and Safety

    • What safety measures are in place? What safety equipment do your guides carry with them on trek to deal with sickness/accidents?

      Our trekking guides are highly experienced, professional and well trained for higher altitude first aid training and related problems. They can measure your oxygen level in blood using oximeters and provide first aid if needed. Our guide carries medicine and a first aid kit during the trek. Besides, our guides carry a cell phone and keep on updating about the trek in our head office Kathmandu every day. If you deal with sickness or accidents, our guide will accompany you throughout the trek and ensure your safety and wellness. In case of emergency, our guide will manage helicopter rescue for your medical treatment in Kathmandu. However, the cost of helicopter charter is solely borne by trekkers.

      Make sure that your insurance policy covered medical expenses and emergency helicopter rescue in high altitude regions above 4,000 m; otherwise the cost is expensive in the mountain region. Only if you have purchased a valid travel insurance policy that covers helicopter charter and medical evacuation, then you can claim for reimbursement with your travel insurance company. In that case, we can help you with providing money receipts for your claim.

    • What immunizations will I need?

      Vaccinations are not mandatory for this trip. Still, we recommend you are vaccinated against diphtheria TB, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, *malaria, typhoid, polio and tetanus for your safety. We suggest a dental check up prior to the trek and be aware of your blood group type. Likewise, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions we recommend you to inform us while booking the trip.

    • If I am sick can I continue the trek next day after a day rest?

      Well, it depends on your sickness level. You should talk with your guide about your health and take necessary measures. If you get sick at a higher altitude, you need to descend at a lower altitude and take rest (3-7 days) for recovery. Depending upon your situation, our guide will put you in the next trekking group coming up in the trek. Your health matters, so you can take a rest until recovery and catch up with the next group.

    • Do you guys have a Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC)?

      Yes, we do have PAC. Everest Base Camp Trek is around 5000m level, so it may not always required. Surely, we can provide PAC if necessary with additional fees on payment. Besides, you can hire oxygen cylinder from guest houses if it’s needed. Please note: If you are using oxygen cylinder in the Everest region, it can be expensive. So make sure that you have travel insurance that covers your emergency medical expenses at higher altitude.

    Trekking Guides

    Trip Departure and Extension

    • All your departure is guaranteed to run?

      Yes, all our trips are guaranteed to run. We never cancel the trip due to not having enough participants. Also, we make arrangements for one person and a private trip as well. You can make inquiries while booking the trip.

    • I would like to extend my holiday, any recommendations?

      Yes. There are so many options and choices available to extend your holiday before or after the trek. Please visit our website for more information about treks and tours in Nepal, India, Bhutan and Tibet.

    • Can I add extra days to my trekking trip?

      Certainly, you can add extra days during the Everest Base Camp Trek. You need to pay extra cost that includes additional cost to cover food, accommodation, guides and porters. This option is more convenient and feasible for an individual or a private trip. On the other hand, if you are in a group, this option is limited, and often should be arranged properly. So, we highly encourage you to ask us in advance or talk with your guide or trekking group members so that we will manage it accordingly.

The trek was very enjoyable and was everything I hoped it would be. My guide Manu did a great job taking care of the group, ensuring that we were fed, feeling well and enjoying the trek. The porters, Shere and Bhupal both not only helped us carry our belongings, which in itself is an impressive task, they were also great companions.

Ace the Himalaya provide a wonderful experience through the vibrant Himalayan mountain range. Staff were always helpful, responsive, eager and outstandingly professional.

Our tour guide, Milan was exceptional as he lead our group through the trek. He provided a wealth of knowledge of the local area and was always happy to tell you about this wonderful country.

Kishor Neupane at Ace the Himalaya is a spectacular guide! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and worked incredibly hard to make the experience amazing (and he succeeded!). I can’t recommend him highly enough. This was my first trip to Nepal and EBC and my son’s second. My husband and our sons had traveled with Kishor in 2017 and had a wonderful time so I was lucky to do this trip with one of my sons for his second time. Amazing experience and amazing guide. Thank you Kishor and Ace the Himalaya for the trip of a lifetime!

After a failed attempt to Base Camp in December 2018, I returned for a 2nd attempt in September 2019.
I was very fortunate to have the same two guides again for the summer trek, the lead guide Dipak Dahal was simply amazing his dedication to ensure my return trek was a success was second to non, he worked closely with me to ensure I manage certain aspects of my trek to ensure I completed it safely and successfully, it is with that I thank him so much for making my second attempt to Base Camp as enjoyable and safe it was greatly appreciated.
Our 2nd guide Amin also on my first attempt is learning the ropes and provides trekkers and the Ace the Himalayas staff where just as good with great communication from the time I booked onto the trek right through to arrival and departure.

I opted for the food package and sleeping bag and jacket hire this was a great idea this trip, it avoided awkward situations around baggage allowances with airlines, the equipment was very clean and very new and very adequate for the trip. The food package was excellent with ample quality food and value for money.

The return trek was such a great experience and to finally make Base Camp with a great group of people and guides was amazing I would recommend this trek to anyone wishing to challenge themselves though I would put some thoughts into what time you travel, having done a winter and a late summer trek I would favour the late summer trek with temperatures being between 14 and -2 compared to 7 through to -35 degrees
But the two extremes are well worth seeing and again could not recommend Ace the Himalaya trekking company any higher their level of professionalism from the highly qualified guides through to the office staff was next level and again a special mention to Dipak Dahal and Armin Karki for their amazing efforts throughout the trek.

Communication by Sajiya was great from the initial contact made, despite the time difference I found her responses were prompt and detailed answering all my questions. Manoj was a great guide who was very considerate and all together lovely to be around. Porters were also very considerate and caring , both Bhupal and Shere, overall the whole team was very customer focused and ensured everyone was well looked after.

At no point was I worried that I won’t get picked up or dropped off at the airport, that accommodation won’t be sorted out, that something will be missed.. They did a great job! I will definitely recommend Ace the Himalayas to my friends and family, so why not recommend to you all! Many thanks for the great experience, ticked off the bucket list!

Ramhari Neupane was my guide. He and the other staff were able to safely get about 25 people up and down the mountain. He was extremely patient with our group. As you can imagine, it takes a special person to contend with personalities from all over the world. Ram met and surpassed all of my expectations.

Speaking of that, his ability to manage our expectations was superb. There were no unpleasant surprises. It also helps that his English speaking skills were impeccable. He was working all the time, but he never seemed stressed. Believe me when I say he had to deal with some bad actors in our group all the time. He should get guide of the year!

Excellent trek guided by Ace. Ravi, Ramesh, and Raj did a great job working with a large group of varying skill levels. A fun group of guides to be around who made sure the group took the time to adjust to the elevation and took their time to set up a sustainable pace. They attended to the group making sure people made it to destinations safely and coped with the elevation increase.

We went to the Everest Base Camp with pasang dawa Sherpa. He was very supportive and helpful along the way. My partner got sick on the way so he helped us take some time off and recover before heading out. We completed the trek thanks to pasang.

Highly recommend guide

I started the Everest Base Camp trek with Nimesh in March 2019, and I absolutely loved having him as my guide. At every step, from the initial pre-trip meeting to handling flights to Lukla to directing the porters and dealing with our crazy group, Nimesh was kind, patient, steadfast and intelligent. I hurt my ankle in Namche Bazaar and, since I insisted on continuing, Nimesh quickly arranged a horse and horseman to take me to Tengboche. He treated my ankle that night with knowledge and care. When the next morning it became apparent I could not go on, he immediately called a helicopter and had me on it in less than 20 minutes, then had his friend meet me in Lukla to meet the helicopter and arrange the flight back to Kathmandu. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to try to do all this myself, but Nimesh handled the situation with empathy and urgency.

Nimesh’s insight into the culture, expert counsel to his clients and skill on the trail are beyond compare. Plus, he’s a great conversationalist and very funny, and truly wants to learn about his clients.

I am returning this year for another EBC trip with Ace, and insisted on having Nimesh as my guide—because I wanted the best, and that’s what he is. I can’t wait!

From our arrival in Kathmandu to our stay in the Himalayas, ‘Ace the Himalayas’ has made this trip the most memorable from beginning to end. Our porters were great, but Pasang definitely made sure we had the best possible time, ticking this huge trek off of our bucket list. The Ace the Himalayas company provided food, warm jackets, sleeping bags and accomodation all for a competitive rate. The team made sure we were always safe and aware of our surroundings while also looking to push us as much as possible. I would absolutely recommend this tour and the tour guide of Pasang to anyone who is looking to conquer the Himalayas, up to and including Everest base camp!

Having never hiked before, this was a challenging experience. However i was reassured knowing that i had such a qualified guide, pasang and a supporting company that made the experience a whole lot easier. Getting picked up and dropped off at the airport was effortless. We always had someone with us. Drivers were always early or on time, NEVER late. Advice was given which was super helpful from the company. My only suggestion is when booking they should clarify what currency and the additional surcharges

What an incredible adventure! We had an amazing trip with Ace the Himalaya and could not recommend them enough. From the minute we booked we were impressed with the communication from Lokesh and the team who speedily answered all of our questions and provided us with a comprehensive pre-trek packing list.

When we arrived in Kathmandu, our trek manager Sajiya gave us a comprehensive outline of the itinerary and what to expect which prepared us for all eventualities.

We struck gold with Madan as our tour guide. Over the course of the two weeks he went from guide to friend to family. Madan having done over 200 treks had so much knowledge of not only the Himalayas but also medical knowledge on how to minimise the chances of altitude sickness, which none of us got. Because of him, we were able to achieve 100% success rate with all members of our group not only making base camp, but also making the difficult yet rewarding trek up Kala Patthar.

Madan kept us laughing, even when we were altitude trekking in -17 degrees! He kept us humble with the number of times he beat us at UNO, and always reminded us to stop and admire the view. He was constantly checking for altitude sickness so we felt safe and well cared for. He even brought up a pulse oximeter to check our oxygen levels. His passion about preserving the beauty of the Himalayas and caring for its people was infectious, and he helped us recognise the importance of sustainable trekking.

Our wonderful Porters Raj and Dhan made the trek much easier for us and were always there if we needed help. We couldn’t have done it without them. Dhan especially was like a second guide and joined us for acclimatisation treks and the trek to base camp.

Overall this was the a trek of the lifetime. Going with Ace the Himalaya made it the perfect trip.

Best choice for Everest base camp trek!!! Sajiya at the office is very responsive to all of your questions and concerns about any detail of your trip. My guide Jag was amazing!! I highly recommend him! He is very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of the trek!! Everything we did was to ensure that my health and safety were secure in order for me to reach the base camp. Also I was stuck in Nepal during the coronavirus lockdown and everyone from Ace was extremely helpful in helping with the logistics of of my extended stay as well as my eventual return home. I will definitely come back to Nepal one day to do more trekking and I won’t hesitate to book with Ace again.

The Everest Base Camp Trek with Ace the Himalaya was one of my favourite trips of all time. Our guides (Bharat and Manoj) were incredibly professional and knowledgeable, which allowed me and my family to fully immerse ourselves in this once in a lifetime experience. If you ever wish to visit Nepal or the Himalayas, be sure to go through Ace!

We completed this trek in 2011, and we have returned to Nepal several times since then to support Ace’s partner charity, Sambhav Nepal, which is focused on improving the quality of education, healthcare and opportunities to people in the Gorkha region of Nepal.

The magnitude of completing an EBC trek is not fully realised until days and weeks or reflection are absorbed.

Our Ace manager Sajiya briefed us comprehensively on trekking conditions and our schedule prior to departing, and organised our resort accommodation (upon request) at our return. Her attention to detail is reassuring to say the least, we had absolute confidence in her helmsmanship of Ace from there on in. For our first experience abroad, in hindsight, we wouldn’t change a single detail.

Picked up in the late evening from the airport by our plucky guide Deepesh, it became evident that his ownership of our Himalayan experience was personal. He sold the total package of EBC on his amicable, unflappable conduct. Throughout the entire trek Deepesh was right about wherever you needed him to be, whatever the requirement. His converse with the porters and hosts was on par, and he always negotiated an accord in our favour.

One of the Himalayan heroes was our porter Kumar, always making himself available as the personal host. Many times Kumar would return unladen from despatching our baggage at accommodation and assist a struggling group member by taking a daypack or offering stimulating support. Having being blessed with good fitness, some days I delighted in catching up to Kumar climbing a pass during the days trek which would draw a chuckle and a positive response.

In reflection our EBC advice is to go with Ace, go hard, go prepared and go without expectations. Because the real reward will come later, reflecting on your journey a lifetime away in the warmth and comfort of your humble daily existence

Pasang was our guide for a 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek and he was great. When you book with Ace you know that you are getting a experienced guide with a team of people ready to help you – this is what you need when in the extreme environments of the Himalayas.

Surya was an exceptional guide, and I recommend him wholeheartedly! It was so nice to have someone who orchestrated all of the logistics for the trip so that I could relax and enjoy myself. I also felt very safe throughout the trek-which was very important as a solo, female traveler.

Booked a trip to Nepal for a 13 day EBC with Ace. They were always quick to reply to any questions, and provided us plenty of information about what we needed to know. Kudos to the office staff for all their help and prep work. On the tour itself we had Sunil as our guide and Hari and Jet as our porters. From the beginning, we were taken care of , like family. Through Sunils advice, we never required altitude sickness meds, and made it successfully to EBC. Thank you for an amazing experience!

I recently completed the EBC trek and couldn’t say enough about my experience. The trip started off rough as I missed my connection in Doha but quickly the staff at Ace were providing me with my options. They got me to Lukla in time and I met up with my trekking team. The experience itself was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience. Our lead guide, Dipesh, was extraordinary!! He is extremely knowledgeable of the region and the various villages and places we stayed and provided a top notch service to myself and my team. Our other guide, Robi, was also simply amazing. Just to provide a good example, one of our team members fell ill during the trek and Robi carried him to the nearest village. That is just one example of the incredible service they provided. Usually when I write reviews I give some constructive feedback but I honestly wouldn’t change a thing, it was wonderful. Not only would I recommend Ace and this experience but I plan on coming back someday myself.

One of the greatest experiences of my life! The Everest Base Camp Trek was truly amazing, the mountains of the Khumbu Valley are well worth making your way to Nepal to see for yourself. Our guide Nimesh was an excellent host, a big thanks to him and the team for getting us to the top and back! Highly recommended.
