Summer: - Monsoon, so rain and visibility can be a big issue (from Mid June, July and August). We do not suggest you this time for the trek.

Acclimatization 
There is no way to prepare for altitude other than to spend time at altitude. Being in very good physical condition will help ameliorate some of the exhaustion that people often feel, but it will not prevent altitude caused medical problems such as Acute Mountain Sickness. This itinerary is designed with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) in mind and to ensure a comfortable and safe adventure trek in the Himalayas. Staying well hydrated and getting plenty of rest may help. 

The maximum elevation of this trek will be reached at Everest Base Camp at 5364m above sea level. Obviously this altitude range is high, but as we would be e range of altitude, and we are hiking from the 820m to this altitude range with enough days of hiking en route, it is not considered a high risk zone for AMS. However, AMS could affect to the peoples indifferently. 

Travel Insurance & Vaccination
You must obtain personal travel insurance to join us for our Himalayan trips. You must be having a travel insurance which must cover helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation and medical expenses. And it is suggested that you buy your insurance policy from you homeland country before traveling as it is difficult buying local travel insurance policy for foreigners in Nepal.

After working as a porter for some years, he met a trek company owner in Lukla and started working for them as a porter. He was later afforded the opportunity to work as a guide. He took the opportunity with both hands. As a guide, his first assignment was to lead two Canadian trekkers and an Australian trekker to the Everest Base Camp.

At present, he lives with his family in Kathmandu. He has a 12 years old son and a 7 years old daughter. He is very fond of the mountains. So much so that as soon as a trek concludes, he cannot wait for the other to begin so that he can be around the mountains again.

 his first assignment was a group of two trekkers from Canada and Australia whom he took to EBC…that being his first trip, it required him to ask a lot of questions to other fellow guides…he learnt a lot.

his family is now in Kathmandu….he has two kinds..a 12 yo son and a 7 yo daughter…and his wife…..when he is not on trek , all he does is wait for the next group to arrive so that he can go to the mountains.

He believes that it is important to give tourists a unique taste of places they visit- be it local animals or flora and fauna, celebrations or culinary experiences. He tries his best to always give the tourists a close view of the life in the Himalayas beyond just the majestic mountains.

Everest Trek was an Unforgettable Experience with Advanced Adventures

An unforgettable experience! I decided to tackle on Everest Base Camp on a whim because I thought, why not! I am lover of the great outdoors and what better place to go to than Nepal, home to the great Himalayas.

I sought adventure, challenge and fun and it was definitely met! And even with very little preparation it was all made possible thanks to Advanced Adventures! The Himalayas is without a doubt an embodiment of all things majestic. Everywhere you looked was just one panoramic view after panoramic view of astonishing sceneries, and there were countless times I was rendered speechless by what was in front of me. Amazing, breathtaking, astounding, mesmerizing! All these words are mere understatements, and pictures do absolutely no justice, as nothing compares to actually being there in the flesh.

Being in among it all; the challenge of the pass, the beautiful mountains and landscapes, the people, their culture, the many villages and tea houses we passed through; dissolved any doubts I had in coming to Nepal. I felt safer than anywhere I had ever been being a solo female traveler.

Purna, my guide, was very professional, and had a vast knowledge of the mountains and its people. And though I went to do the trek alone, I never felt like I was as he, along with my porter Prakash, was absolutely great company. I also got to meet some awesome people along the way whom I ended up trekking with all the way to the final destination!

Purna and Prakash not only took great care of me and made me feel safe and secure, but they, together with the new friends I made, also made the trek so much fun and made my experience that much more unforgettable! To anyone thinking of undertaking this incredible feat, Advanced Adventures is the company to go with. Mr. Chet Bhatta and his fantastic team proved to be nothing but excellent and I’m so glad to have done the EBC trek with AA! Thank you so much for the adventure of a lifetime!

The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs !

The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs !

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always dreamed of going to Mt Everest.  I wanted to use a Nepal based tour group for my visit and found Advanced Adventures via Google.  I found Chet had an excellent grasp on English and he was really easy to deal with.  So my husband and I made our booking and started to train…  I have to admit I was nervous about someone actually being there at the airport when we arrived in Kathmandu, rather than some rogue website!  But all went to plan and we were greeted at the airport by our Guide and shortly thereafter met Chet Bhatta.

From the moment we were picked up at the airport, everything ran really smoothly and any last minute questions or concerns we had were quickly put at ease.  We flew in on time to Lukla airport and started the great walk.  The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs.  We made sure we did as much training as we could fit in before we left and it paid off.  Our guide was Eaklal and our Sherpa was Suresh.  They were excellent to deal with and we very well looked after.  Most days Suresh would beat us to the next teahouse and for the whole trip we never waited for than 5 minutes for our bags to arrive.  Eaklal spoke English really well and they were both more than happy to spend some free time playing some awesome Nepal card games that they taught us.

We mostly struggled with the cold.  We come from sunny Qld so the temperatures as low as -20 were a bit of a shell shock.  Although we knew how cold it could be, we thought that the teahouses would have fireplaces burning part of the day and night…  This is not the case.  Rather, most had ‘pot bellied stoves’ that we saw would only be fired up mostly between 5pm and 9pm.  This is due to the limited amount of fuel ie yak dung.  So it was hard to get warm once you stopped walking for the day.  But the amazing people, food and scenery far outweighed and concern about being cold.

The teahouses were pleasant and the food was actually really good.  It was such a good feeling to get to base camp – a big tick off the bucket list!

We had amazing weather walking up to base camp but some cloudy/foggy weather for part of the trip down.  We were lucky enough to hitch a ride back to Kathmandu via a helicopter – this was truly breathtaking flying over the Himalayas in a helicopter.  And this did not cost us an extra cent.  I am confident this only happened because of the good relationships and reputation that Advanced Adventures have.

We will certainly be recommending to our friends to make this amazing trip and to use Advanced Adventures.
 
A big thank you from Kelly and Denver Parker.

We can say that booking a trek with Advanced Adventures was the best decision we ever made.

We can say that booking a trek with Advanced Adventures was the best decision we ever made.

We traveled in Nepal for the first time of our life, at 49 and 52 years old, on October 2013. Carole’s life dream was to trek to Everest Base Camp. So we looked up the internet and decided to book our trip with Advanced Adventures, a Nepal local company. We can say that it was the best decision we ever made. Chet, the executive director, was very patient and replied to all the e-mails and questions we had for him to prepare our trip.

When we arrived at the airport of Kathmandu, we were taken care of by the Advanced Adventures team. They came to get us at the airport to bring us at a very nice hotel. The meals were all included and we visited the city of Kathmandu the next day with a guide just for us. For dinner at night, Chet brought us to a restaurant for a welcome traditional meal.

But the real treat started on the second day. Our guide, Lok, came with us from the hotel to the airport to take the helicopter with us. We were lucky to have an helicopter instead of a plane he said. Probably we were lucky, but we found out during our trip that Advanced Adventures makes sure to give all the best to their clients. Our guide, Lok, was always taking care of us in all matters, from our security to our meals, teas, biscuits, lodges and we never had to pay anything more than the package we paid at the beginning. Our porter, Bisnu was also so wonderful to us. He would hurry to lodges with our heavy duffle bags, so he could come back to take our backpacks so we could climb more easily to our arrival point. We noticed during the trek that we were always getting a little more from Lok and Bisnu than  other clients were getting from their guides. When we came back to Kathmandu, we had a party dinner and when we asked Chet if we could bring with some friends we made on the trek, he said: ‘’Of course they can come’’!!!
We were so spoiled from Advanced Adventures that we recommend them to everybody who want to make sure they will get the best out of a trek in the Himalayas.

Thank you again to Chet, Lok and Bisnu who helped us realized this wonderful trip and accomplishment to reach the Everest Base Camp. They certainly have a nice place in our hearths for life.

WOW! What an experience for life…Thanks Advanced Adventures !

WOW! What an experience for life…

I’m so happy and proud that I did this Trip with Advanced Adventures. My friends and family were telling me, if I am crazy doing this, after all that happened here. But believe me, it is so worth it. Traveling to Nepal is so safe, or even safer than before. The trek, the people, and the lodges everything was so amazing.

Thank you so many guys for making this journey so special.

Advanced Adventures is the perfect mix of cost and services! We had a wonderful trip!

Advanced Adventures is the perfect mix of cost and services! We had a wonderful trip!

My husband and I looked around for a Nepalese tour company to organize our hike to Mt. Everest, and I found the perfect mix of cost and services with Advanced Adventures.  From the moment we stepped out of the Kathmandu airport to the moment we returned, we were in good hands.

We had booked their trip to EBC through Gokyo Lakes, but we had flight delays into Lukla, and I came down with the flu in Namche.  Despite the delays, our guide, Bhim, took it all in stride.  

He rerouted our trek and booked our tea houses, as needed, and we even started calling him Dr. Bhim as he pulled steam remedies and other treatments from his seemingly bottomless first aid kit. He kept a steady pace for us, monitoring our health all the way, and we made it to Base Camp just fine.

If you’re thinking of trekking in Nepal, which I highly recommend, you’ll be quite happy doing it with Advanced Adventures.
