Type of Trip
The trek to the Mount Everest base camp (5,364m) is an amazing journey. And like all great journeys, the destination is but one part of the spectacle.
Over the course of this 19 day hiking adventure, you will get to see and experience a great deal. Some examples of the amazing places you will see on this trip include the city of Kathmandu, Lukla, Namche Bazar, Machermo, and Gokyo Ri. You will have the chance to enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic viewpoints of the Himalayas from Kala Pather. You will also get to see Gorakshep, Tengbuche, Dole, the Khumba ice fall and so much more.
Meanwhile, you will also get to experience the unforgettable flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. And you will, of course, get to experience the thrill of reaching Everest base camp, where you can just look up and behold the great mountain itself.
We will be trekking through good trails at a pace of approximately 4 to 5 hours a day. Some days will seem harder than others. As a result, there will be plenty of time dedicated to proper acclimatization. But along those trails, you will pass through Sherpa villages and some of the most breathtaking landscapes you will ever see, including some of the highest peaks in the world!
The trek to Everest base camp is one of the most famous hiking tours in the world, and with good reason, because every moment of this trek feels amazing and surreal. I know you will remember it for the rest of your life. Please send me a message if you are interested in joining me.
I can also offer another memorable hiking trip in Nepal on this 17 day hiking adventure through Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
