March 2020 Everest Basecamp and Cho La pass to Gokyo.
“We had a great trip with Nepal Eco adventure. Our fantastic guide Ram was very knowledgable and extremely entertaining with phenomenal English and took safety very seriously too. The conditions were superb and getting to cross Cho La pass so early in the season was a highlight alongside Everest views from Gokyo Ri. We were extremely fortunate in being able to complete the trip due to coronavirus and we are particularly grateful to the company for this factor.”

Best Ever!!
“The team at Nepal Eco Adventure are nothing short of amazing. I booked the Everest Base Camp - Cho-La Pass - Gokyo tour during November, and was very impressed with the professionalism and kindness of all the people I met who work at Nepal Eco Adventure.
Chhattra is the owner of the business and is a very professional man, who gives thorough details of what to expect while trekking in the Himalaya. He was able to answer all my questions, and responded to all inquiries promptly, which made planning for this trip very easy. He gives excellent recommendations in regard to purchasing gear prior to trekking, if thats what you need. He also leant me a down jacket, sleeping bag, trekking poles and duffle bag which was very kind and VERY helpful for the cold weather!
Our guide for the trek was Basu, and he was absolutely wonderful; very friendly, happy, kind, caring and very VERY knowledgeable about the mountains and surrounding Khumbu region. He is also a very patient and understanding man; I am not a fast walker, especially while hiking uphill at high altitude, and he happily stayed with me while the others in the group went on ahead. Unfortunately I got quite sick during the trek and wasnt able to complete the full itinerary. Basu was very understanding, and sent me off down the mountain to recover with one of our porters/assistant guide, Dilip, to make sure I was safe, and he adjusted my itinerary to maximise the time I had left while trekking to Mongla, where we met up for the remainder of the trek. He made sure that I was looked after well, and had everything that I needed to get better. Dilip was wonderful too; he is very kind and caring, and made sure that I had everything I needed and was happy after I had to spilt from the rest of the group due to feeling too unwell to continue with the heavier trekking. In another unfortunate turn of events, my bag accidentally got switched with someone elses when I split from the rest of the group, and I only realised once we arrived in Periche. I was happy to just wait until we met up with the rest of the group again, but Dilip went out of his way to go and switch my bag back at Thukla - a 2.5hr round trip, in the cold. Needless to say, I couldnt thank him enough. The kindness, understanding and patience I was shown by Basu and Dilip will never be forgotten.
The porters are very helpful, friendly and kind; we definitely wouldnt have been able to do the trek without them! The loads they carry are huge, and they do it with a smile on their faces... Im still in awe of the weight that they carry while still being able to run up and down the mountain! Incredible!
While the trek didnt pan out exactly as Id hoped, since I missed out on the Cho-La pass and Gokyo lakes due to becoming unwell, the team at Nepal Eco Adventure made sure that my trek was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. I am immeasurably grateful to Chhattra, Basu and Dilip for making sure I was safe and happy during my two weeks in the Himalaya. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them to anyone interested in booking a trek through Nepal, and will be asking for Basu as my guide when I come back to Nepal to trek the Annapurna Circuit!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
