💎 Why we love it ?

We begin Everest Base Camp Trek with a short domestic flight to Lukla from where we rely on our own feet for the rest of the journey. You will get to taste the intoxicating blend of mountain views and the local Sherpa culture. Nights will be spent mostly in lodges and enough time will be allocated for acclimatization whenever a great significant altitude shift is involved. You will also have the opportunity to explore the Mountaineering Museum in Namche Bazar, witness mountain life in Khumjung, and many monasteries, lamaseries, and temples during the trip, including the famous Tengboche Monastery.

    Leading up to the Trek:
    I discovered this amazing company through talking to my Kathmandu accommodation provider. This trek is something that my friends and I had been planning for some time, Outdoor Himalayan Treks (OHT) was very responsive all throughout the planning stages and made the trip stress free. The service provided exceeded all our expectations, OHT met us at the airport on arrival, ensured we arrived safely at the hotel in Kathmandu and maintained consistent and clear communication leading up to the trek and all throughout the trek.

    During the Trek:
    We were very fortunate to have Prakash Khatiwada join us on the three passes trek as our guide. Prakash was very knowledgeable about the entire everest region and I can’t recall a single question that he was not able to answer… Prakash was caring, selfless and always put the needs of the group before his own, a true leader. Also, throughout the trek we made several tweaks to the itinerary which OHT and Prakash were able to accommodate, allowing us to leave the Everest region a day early so we could spend some time in Pokhara. This side trip was also organized by OHT.

    When considering doing a trek or travelling in Nepal, use OHT and ask for Prakash as your guide, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!

    My son and I just completed a 16 day trek to EBC and the three passes lead by our great guide Dilli Prasad Lamsal. The adventure of a lifetime. It was a busy time on the trails and Dilli made sure we had nothing to worry about – from navigating airports to knowing we would have a good tea house each night. He kept us informed, on schedule and entertained. I can’t recommend this trek, company, or guide enough. Also, must acknowledge our trusty porter Keshab for his hard work and dedication.

    My friend and I wanted to do the trek to Everest Base Camp. At the last moment, that is, at the airport, we had to change our plans because of inclement weather and the flights to the starting point was backed up by at least a week. So at the spur of the moment we decided to bail on our flight and try to do the Annapurna Circuit to Thoroung Pass instead. Outdoor Himalayan Treks did the whole setup for us literally between the hours of 9am to about noon. By 1pm we drove to our starting point for the 16 days or so of the trek to Thoroung Pass.

    I think a bit part of why the experience was good was because of our guide. We had a really cool guide that took a lot of attention to detail. My friend and I drank an obscene amount of water and our guide (Bishwas) was always on top of asking the hotel staff about the cleanliness and price of water as well as answering any questions we had, like whether eat the Yak burgers were a good idea. Bishwas didn’t just give us some BS answer, he actually explained when it might be the freshest and he asked the managers at the hotels when the yak was killed. Bishwas also gave my friend and I the freedom to hike ahead when we wanted to or fall back when we wanted to. We ended up not just having a guide/client relationship, it was more like just having a friend show us around. And he showed us great spots that I know other guides didn’t show their clients because we were the only ones at certain hotels (namely one that overlooked a waterfall, and was so close that there was a constant thundering sound of water crashing – amazing).

    Without hyperbole, I think we had the best guide between the 40 or so people that were hiking along the same schedule as us (and we were subsequently the coolest clients too).
