12 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking

Rated 5 out of 5

We did the 12 day Everest Base Camp trek with Kamal and Prem as guide and porters. It was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Base Camp Hike is a fabulous company. I can’t say enough good things about Base Camp Hike. From the time getting to Nepal to leaving to getting Covid tests, everything was taken care of.
Our guide, Kamal, really did his best to ensure we had the best experience and showed us the beauty of life in the mountains. We were very impressed with the services provided by the company which exceeded our expectations.
Trekking to ECB was both the most challenging and most rewarding thing we’ve ever done. The view during the entire Everest trek was awesome. Our Guide allowed us to hike at our own pace and were never in a rush. We always felt safe and immensely enjoyed our ECB trekking.
From the beginning to the end of the trip, the whole team’s commitment to customer service was remarkable.
Hence, highly recommend them to other adventure lovers.
Pro tip: bring a pack of cards to play during the evening with the Guide and porters!
