My 14-day Everest Base Camp trek with you was nothing short of legendary! From the get-go, your team had me at "Namaste!" The pre-trip info was sleep-inducing (thanks to altitude dreams, maybe), and our guide, Sherpa Extraordinaire, was the Yoda of the Himalayas. Porters, the unsung heroes, carried more than my emotional baggage with Everest smiles. Tea houses were cozy oases, offering showers that redefined lukewarm luxury. The Michelin-star-worthy mountain food made noodles at 17,000 feet a taste revelation. In conclusion, this trek was a comedy of errors, triumphs, and jaw-dropping scenery. If you want an adventure with laughs, challenges, and breathtaking views, roll with Welcome Nepal Treks. Thanks for the memories, laughs, and proving that altitude and attitude go hand in hand! Cheers to conquering mountains, both literal and metaphorical! Yak selfies forever, Nick

I did the EBC Trek Tour at the end of October with female Guide Holidays and it was wonderful! As a young woman traveling alone, I felt safe and in good hands at all times. I had a very nice and friendly guide. The tour operators Sabita and Sujan were available at any time and asked how I was doing every day. It was 100% organized care (pickup, accommodation, domestic flights). I would book with this agency again at any time!

The guide Ámbar was the best! He was always aware of my well-being, he took care of all the permits, places to stay and he even served me food and made the service excellent! The last day he decorated my dinner in a very special way, definitely redeeming it for this beautiful adventure

Everything was excellently organized and we had a great trip to the mountains. Everyone had a window seat and the flight attendants explained where we were flying past. Unfortunately Mt. Everest was covered in clouds, but that didn't spoil the experience.

on the flight they explained to us what mountains we were seeing,the staff was very helpful
