Just returned from Everest Base camp ( Nepal Side ) and must say that it was an amazing experience. Most people fly into Lukla to start the trek but our team trekked from Shivalaya which is much lower down at approx 1700 M. We trekked for nearly 7 & a half days before reaching Lukla covering approx 20 - 22Km... More

We are struggling whether to visit EBC or not at the beginning as one challenge was we have to stay overnight at 5,800m there and there's only a limited choices of accommodation, either tent or the guest house (both using public toilets and without bathroom) and our guide recommended us to stay in the guest house. We also have to... More

I loved the base camp. The views at sunrise/sunset are absolutely amazing! The overnight stay at the base camp is an adventure in itself, i.e. tents warmed up with yak poop, no showers, low oxygen, limited food...but it's all worth it!

My husband and I around 60 have just completed the trek to Everest Base Camp. Glad we have ticked that off our bucket list! Amazing views but you really need to listen to your body with the altitude effects. My tips are Take 3 rolls of toilet paper per person Trekking poles a must especially on the way down Must... More

Firstly, you can't actually drive to base camp, you need to take one of the small tourist vans from the tent city. I got caught out by arriving after the cut off time (~7pm to 7.30pm) and had to wait until the next day. When you get there, let the Chinese tourists buzz around for a bit as they tend... More

During non climbing months the base camp is the closest that you can get to Everest. The sight of Everest from the viewing platform is unforgettable. The altitude is 5200 meters. Extremely high. It is difficult to breathe. Every step is something of a labor. You have to climb up the hill to reach the top of the platform for... More

I think it is weird that you can drive to EBC - Tibet . We walked from the Rongbuk Monastery where we stayed . I found it quite humbling as I have been to the Nepali side aswell . I find it quite sad that the Chinese are building a hotel not far away as they don't want to stay... More

Everest is definitely a sight to behold. On the way up to Base Camp, you will see a lot of mountains and go meh, but when you lay eyes on Everest, it is a whole different feeling. Being in the presence of something so huge and tall makes you feel tiny. We arrived at Base Camp at approximately 4pm, so... More

Unlike the base camp near Kala Pattar in Nepal, this one is accessible by motor vehicle. It is preferable to arrive in a 4-wheel drive vehicle with high clearance but all along the way, you will notice that broken axles, shock absorbers and discarded vehicle parts are strewn along the dirt road. We passed a group of hardy souls who... More

Do not go with this company. Still here 3 days at airport. They are no help, group of 15. Talked to the management. Don't care at all. In hotel now, tomorrow paying 500 dollars each for helicopter. I could go on. Please don't go with G Adventures.
