12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek, Chandra was my personal guide during the 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek in December 2008. I have done many customized tours around the world (Andes, Himalaya). But this is definitely one of the best I have ever experienced. The views and sunsets are awesome. Chandra did an awesome job of listening to my needs and organizing the ideal trip for me.

A very helpful intelligent and kind guide and good company as well! Goes out of his way to assist you in which way he can. I managed to sort out a new camera for me during (!) the Mount Everest Base Camp trek as mine had broken down. Adventure of a lifetime!

Awesome Everest Base Camp Trek, I cannot tell how happy I was with Himalaya Guide Nepal services. I received during my October 2016 ‘expedition’ to Everest Base Camp. The company went far and beyond as to what I needed. Full comprehensive and honest service – very happy and satisfied. And as it is sometimes difficult to decide to whom to entrust ourselves. So, they even organized my very pleasant one day tour of Kathmandu, with a driver and tour guide. I do thank you Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. for making my experience of going to Mt. Everest Base Camp so pleasant and memorable. Frank – Melbourne, Australia.

13 days Everest Base Camp Trek. We made a spur of the moment decision to do this trek. So, contacted Chandra to see if it was possible at such short notice. He responded immediately, in no time at all had everything organized for us and a week later. We arrived in Kathmandu for our preparation day. This was our second visit to Nepal – last year we trekked the Annapurna Circuit with the same company. Dinesh (Chandra’s younger brother) was our guide. And he arranged a helper (Suraz) from Lukla who carried our packs.

The trek was very challenging, with the altitude and cold conditions for us. But we had amazing weather and the scenery was spectacular beyond belief. Dinesh is an exceptionally competent guide. Whom we found very caring with a quiet sense of humor. His English is very good which enabled some good discussions re Nepalese culture and points of interest. I have no hesitation in recommending this company for trekking in Nepal. And we certainly intend to visit again.

After having trekked the Annapurna circuit last year, EBC remained on our list to do. We only decided to do this at very short notice. And sent a tentative inquiry to Chandra to see if it was possible. Within 24 hours everything organized and off we went. While we had some idea of the demands of trekking in Nepal after Annapurna. EBC is in a completely different league as far as a physically challenged. It was definitely a lot harder, given both a prolonged period at higher altitudes. And colder temperatures morning and evening to contend with. On the other side, we had magnificent weather with blue skies every day. So November is definitely a good time to do this trek.

The views were simply stunning. Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, etc. Our guide Dinesh was fantastic, taking care of all the details and looking after us really well. He picked great accommodation for getting us the best rooms in the lodges. Every night he cut up some fresh Jomson apples for us for dessert! The flight into Lukla was amazing and a real highlight. The walk and acclimatization days all well planned and most enjoyable. During the day with the sun out, it was very warm. In addition to our guide, we had a helper (Surat)to carry our gear, which I recommend. You don’t have to be super fit to do this walk provide you don’t overstress yourself. I took Diamox (125mg) morning and evening and that helped prevent any symptoms of altitude sickness, which I suffered the year before on Annapurna, where I didn’t take this drug.

Interestingly enough we met a Canadian Neurologist who was also taking Diamox. So, that in my mind click to the fact I was doing the right thing. Chandra and his team at Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt Limited are great to deal with and would heartily recommend them to anyone. Family-friendly and professional they cover all the basics. Our next trip is to Pokhara and their village.

Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018. My friend and I recently returned from EBC on a trek organized by Chandra at Himalaya Guide Nepal and I would have to say that it was one of the best trips of my life.

Right from the start when I contacted him via email Chandra was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any concerns or questions we had.

When we arrived (very late) in Kathmandu, representatives were waiting for us at the airport and ferried us to our hotel with no hassle, before our sightseeing trip around Kathmandu the next day. It was a very nice, but long, day but our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable.

Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018, Then the trek itself. It goes without saying that the scenery is unbelievable, but what else can I say except it was amazing. Our guide Nurbu and porter Lakpa took care of absolutely everything. And made us feel very welcome throughout the whole 12 days. Nurbu was extremely informative, very patient (especially with my friend, who was rather slow). With most of all great fun to be with. We looked forward to his nightly briefing with eager anticipation!

Everything ran like clockwork, with breaks, meal times and teahouses seamlessly organized. So, that we never had to worry about a thing the whole trek.

The only problem we had with flights in and out of Lukla (we ended up paying extra for helicopter trips due to time constraints). But even then Chandra organized a full refund for our canceled plane flights with no questions asked.

Then when we got back to Katmandu, Chandra took care of us once more, checking to see if we were ok and taking us for a celebration dinner.

What made it more special were the little touches, the fresh fruit after dinner each night. The plaque presented to us upon completion and the silk scarf given to us. We left for the airport after an exhausting, but a highly enjoyable 15-day trip.

It was a superb experience. So, I would highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal to anyone wishing to trek the EBC route.
