“I don't know from where to start, this was really the best experience of my life and it's all thanks to Lok our amazing guide.I have visited many countries and different places but the views are no matchto the views you are going to see on the EBC trek.There were a few moments where I would post a picture during the trek or send it to friends and they would say it's photoshopped , and it would look photoshopped even to me haha When me and my friend started planning the trip there were so many companies to choose from and it was a bit overwhelming, so I started asking questions to a few of them but Upendra the owner had the most impact on me , he was so fast to respond to the million questions I had that I was left pleasantry surprised and decided to go with Himalayan Leisure Inc and it was the best decision I have made.Our guide Lok welcomed us at the airport , and took us to the hotel where we had a short meeting with Upendra to give us a summary of the trip , and he also gave us duffel bags, sleeping bags since we didn't have any.Next morning we got up early and went towards the domestic airport to get a flight to Lukla, Lok had arranged a breakfast with the hotel in advance and had it packed and ready for us because it was still too early. Even before we boarded the flight to Lukla he told us where to sit to get the best views and pictures.Once we arrived at Lukla the trek started and we were lucky to have very good weather through all of it.Every single day our guide Lok made sure he asks us what we want to have for breakfast and when we woke up , 5 minutes later we had it server with coffee/tea.He was also organizing our lunch and dinner and it was always fast which was really good after a long day.We were never in rush , he was walking behind us letting us set the pace and take as many breaks as we needed , and if anyone of us was ever tired he would offer to take our bag.Every night he would also take measurement of our oxygen and ask us how are we doing , do we have any issues and make sure we drink plenty of water when resting and have always water in our bags for the trek.One of the days I was not feeling very well probably because I got sunburned so he went immediatly and got a thermometer but luckily after getting some sleep I was a lot better and didn't have any other issues during the trip or AMS symptoms, so make sure you have sun protection for those long treks and a hat.During the trek there were a few people that we met and they didn't make it all the way to Base Camp and I feel if we were doing the trek on our own we might not have made it as well.If you are considering the EBC trek , just do it honestly, I was thinking about it for at least a whole year having the feeling that it might be too much for me but it wasn't, I just regret not doing it earlier.Also definetly make sure to ask for Lok to be your guide if possible , he is such a good human being and also really funny that you will feel way better just having him around you.”

“The EBC trek must be a to do on everyones list. The stunning views and the sense of achievement, people you meet and the physical challenge, the EBC trek will not fail you. Even though we were wary of the trek, it turned to be a lot more fun than we had expected it to be.”
Amazing experience!

“My partner and I went on this unforgettable trek for 12 days to EBC and had an amazing time. There were issues with the flights on the day we were due to fly to Lukla but the company booked us a helicopter at no extra charge, which meant amazing views and an amazing experience flying over the mountains coming in to Lukla.

The trek starts off going through many small villages along the path, and its very interesting seeing people go about their daily lives there, alongside sweeping beautiful views of greenery over the mountains, passing cows and donkeys carrying loads (the only version of Himalayan traffic jams youll see!) and lots of bridges to cross over the river. As the altitude goes higher the whole landscape changes to an alpine one with more shrubs and gravel and views of the snowy mountains above, and the climbing becomes colder, windier and more difficult because of the altitude, with some sections of steep climbing. Our guide Bibek was amazing he not only was cheery and easy to get along with, always motivating us with a Lets do!, but he gave us invaluable advice about what we needed for each days trek, what the route would be like, and recommendations on buying things like hiking poles and scarves where we would have struggled without them. Not only that but he has great knowledge of the surrounding mountains and views. He was also very understanding when things were harder for us, and always made sure we were well taken care of! Our safety and comfort were the most important things to him he always checked in on how we were feeling, took the lead when the trail was tough to show us the safest and easiest route, and kept us safe from the traffic mentioned above.

The lodges do get a little rougher going towards higher altitude be prepared for it to be cold (up to -20oC), despite the warm sleeping bags and down jackets we rented and the good weather we had on the trip. We would also highly recommend a porter as trekking at altitude was already difficult, we couldnt have done it without them. At the end of it, we were so proud and happy to have done it, and the whole incredible experience was finished with an awesome night back in Lukla with some beers and traditional rice wine, and busting out some moves with Bibek and the porters, as well as a great Nepalese dinner the last night in Kathmandu to cap it all off.

Thanks so much for an awesome experience!”
