Well, this is now our BIGGEST bucket list trip ticked - and so successfully - WOW!! The whole heli tour was spectacular!! from the flight over the steep terraced lands to Lukla for refueling, to Everest itself (so close I felt like I could reach out and touch it!!) and seeing Base Camp, the Khumbu Icefall, the Western Cwm and Camp 2, the Lhotse Face.... such iconic vistas. Then on to the Everest View Hotel for a yummy breakfast and stunning views of Mt. Everest (I had to keep pinching myself that I was actually gazing upon Everest!!) Lhotse, Nuptse, Taboche and Ama Dablam. We had a few hours at the hotel just drinking it all in and there are paths all around where you can walk and "feel" like you are doing a bit of a "trek"! Our Fishtail Air heli pilot, Francois, was so professional and we felt safe the whole time! Bring extra cash for hotel gift souvenirs. Worth it - HIGHLY recommend this tour for anybody wanting to see Everest. Chris and Elissa - Vancouver, Canada

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

This tour is very well planned and worth the money. There was clear communication about everything which made the trip truly enjoyable. There were many people who had to be involved so it was hard to know who to tip but It was a once in a lifetime experience which I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to view this majestic mountain without trekking 14 days. It was also a beautiful day with blue sky which made for perfect viewing.

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
