Ollie's review for another Mount Adventure Holidays tour
“The Everest Base Camp trek is an incredible way to spend 9-14 days experiencing the delights of the Himalaya mountain region, with the ultimate reward of reaching the base camp of the world's most notorious mountain climb. I couldn't recommend Mount Adventure Holidays & Pasang who runs the company any more highly. He took such great care of me as a solo traveller, answering all my questions very promptly before the trip, and organising every last detail from the moment I touched down in Kathmandu, to when I left. Nepal can be a slightly chaotic place to travel around, and for me I had flights to and from Lukla cancelled (due to a "broken plane"), however with Pasang around, he made all the necessary arrangements such that I still made it to do the trek in the time I had! He ensured I had all the necessary trekking gear, lending me a few bits I didn't have. At the end of the trek he gave me a quick tour of Kathmandu and even invited me into his home. As a side point, Pasang uses guides based in Lukla or the surrounding region, so unlike other companies the price of flying a guide from Kathmandu to Lukla isn't included in the price. He is absolutely priceless, so if you are thinking of doing any trekking in Nepal, use him!”

Ryan's review for another Mount Adventure Holidays tour
“We took a 7 day trip to Annapurna basecamp with our lovely guide Pemba, back in September of 2016.

We flew from Kathmandu to Pokhara where we met Pemba, who was nothing short of an amazing guide and host. He was very knowledgable of the area, and always had interesting facts to tell us about the place.

The trip up was beautiful (and a bit of hard work!). Pemba made sure we were feeling fit and healthy to continue, and was always happy to go at our pace. The teahouses on the way up were stunning with always great hospitable guests. And don't get me started on the Dahl Baht! Once we reached the base camp, it was a little foggy to see the peaks. Myself and my girlfriend, luckily stayed up throughout the night (which was a full moon) and had complete tranquility and peace up there as we were the only people awake. The fog cleared and it was to this day, the most breathtaking, jawdropping, otherworldly experience of my life.”

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.
