Amazing hiking experience
5 - Excellent
  • Seunghyun Baek
“The tour was well laid out and thoroughly planned. Specifically, our tour guide Kumar was awesome. He’s well versed in hiking in the Himalayan regions and very experienced. He always plans ahead and shares his views on what he believes will lead to an enjoyable hike. He’s also very open to hiking to your pace and scheduling to your needs. Our porter, Nekumar was also great. He had no issues hiking for multiple hours with our heavy gears. Our guide and porter were always prepared and on time. I strongly recommend them both for your tour.”
Challenging and rewarding adventure

  • Steven McDonald
“Traveling with my 15-year old son, I wanted to ensure that we hired an experienced guide for this trip, to provide guidance and to increase our chances of a safe and memorable trek. Right from the first communication with Khum I felt that we were supported and had made a good decision. Ahead of our arrival Khum handled all of the permit and Lukla flight details and when we arrived in Kathmandu he was there to greet us. We met our guide Sudan with Khum at our hotel the next day and confirmed the details for the start of the trek, including the plan for getting to Ramechhap airport to fly to Lukla. Once on the trail, Sudan provided many insights and helped us to adjust to the daily activities, but also managed the Guest House accommodations, permit checkpoints and various logistics on our behalf. This allowed us to focus on the trails, the gorgeous views, meeting other travelers, etc. We successfully arrived at Everest Base Camp and felt elated to have accomplished our goal with support from this local travel specialist. Despite acclimatization days and altitude medication, my son experienced acute altitude sickness the following morning. I'm so grateful to Khum and the team for promptly arranging a helicopter evacuation from Gorak Shep to Lukla, which being at a lower altitude was all that was required to alleviate his symptoms. No additional medical intervention was needed.”
Great experience

“I did the EBC trek with helicopter return along with a small group of friends. Overall, I am very satisfied with all arrangements and services provided during this trip. The booking process was straightforward, without any communication problems whatsoever. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, we met company's owner (who used to be a guide) to review the details of the trek, and we were given the opportunity to supplement out equipment by borrowing (free) or buying needed items. Our two guides were very friendly and helpful throughout the trip and knowledgeable about the details of each daily stage of the hike. I would definitely recommend this local travel specialist to others who would consider a similar trek.”

  • Budget Trek in Everest Base CampAdventure seekers will jump at the opportunity to trek to Everest Base Camp.

  • Sightseeing in Kathmandu on a Budget: You can pack lots of sightseeing experience in your Kathmandu budget tour. Many sights in Kathmandu Valley are either free to enter or charge inexpensive tickets.
