Just completed the EBC trek organised by Explore Himalaya. Great travel company & a fantastic trek. Our guide, Bal Kumar was amazing, very experienced and made us feel very well looked after. I would recommend Explore Himalaya and Bal Kumar in particular to anyone who’s looking for a trustworthy trekking company in Nepal.

I did the EBC-Trek during end of Dezember 2019 - January 20. I reached the Mount Everest Basecamp on the 1st of January 2020 - yay! I`m not going to lie, it was one of the hardest thing I ever done, but it was so worth!
During the whole trek my dear Guide Bal Kumar Tamang was very professional, kind and positive, which made everything much easier. Also a big thank you to my dear porter, which was always smiling, happy and helping. I cannot say one bad thing.
The company itself was very professional, they always responded to all my emails within a few hours. Everything was always perfect. I for sure come back to do the Annapurna Trek:)
Thank you Explore Himalaya!

We trekked to Gyoko and did the Cho La pass and Everest base camp. We had a trip of a lifetime. The trekking was challenging in parts due to ice and snow. We cannot thank enough Bal Kumar our leader, Sureman our assistant guide, and Bikash and Santhos, our porters. I would highly recommend Explore Himalaya. They were adaptable and responded exceptionally well due to changes resulting from Covid19. Explore Himalaya ensured we were at all times safe, well cared for and extremely well advised and guided. This company demonstrated professionalism, reliability, loyalty and perseverance and ensured we not only experienced a brilliant trek, but also, amid flight closures due to the pandemic, ensured that we could fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla on the day we needed to. Thank you to Anuj and all the great staff at Explore Himalaya.

The guides have exceeded what I could imagine, they were all professional, friendly and caring towards the tourists. With just spending two weeks time in Nepal, the guides and the group had definitely bonded very well and its all that I could ever ask for a journey of a lifetime. I would be delighted to have a trip with them again next time to the himalayas!

This company is one of the top companies in the Himalayas. I've been on 2 different adventures with them. They are professional and very nice. My 1st adventure was tack to bass camp and some skydiving. Me and my wife went in 2017 and had a great time. They have the best places to stay with the best views. They treat you like vip Is the whole time. I recently wit in November. We did the adventure part to polka. We did about a 170 jumps is jumps in 5 day.. Can't say enough about this company

I trekked for 2 weeks with Explore Himalaya and every aspect of the trip was superb. Our guides and porters were very knowledgeable, helpful and capable, and we all quickly became friends. Our group undertook many days of tricky snow and ice covered path trekking and we felt extremely well guided and looked after at all times. Cho La Pass was the biggest challenge, but our spirits and energy were expertly nourished by the crew. Sinking into the comfortable lounge/dining areas of the tea houses each afternoon, we always appreciated the hot drinks and snacks that were promptly organised. I unreservedly recommend Explore Himalaya Travel & Adventure. I am looking forward to engaging them again for my next trek, to Manaslu.

The team at Explore Himalaya really made my EBC trip so much better than I could have imagined. The staff are friendly and the guide and his team were the best, there was nothing they couldn’t do for me and they were so knowledgeable it really gave me so much more than I expected. I am going to return to Nepal and I wouldn’t consider any other company.

First, I would like to say a few words on Explore Himalaya Travel and Adventure generally, although the scope of this review is on the half day Heli Everest Tour. I was in Nepal 8 days and had 4 site seeing tours as well as one fixed wing Himalaya flight and the Heli Tour Flight. Explore Himalaya is by far the best travel agency I have ever dealt with and are responsible for making my trip to Nepal the most memorable trip I have taken in my life. From obtaining information, to booking the trip and finally executing all the details of the tours such as booking hotels, arranging tours, etc., all was flawless and professional. I was amazed at how efficient and organized they were and how each tour was perfect and the hotels four/five star all the way. And the guides were friendly and very knowledgeable about the history, religion and every facet of life in Nepal. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for your Nepal adventure.

Now to the Heli tour. This was by far the most memorable tour I have had in my life and I've been to most if not all of the most scenic places on earth. I know using terms like "most memorable in my life" and "something I'll never forget" seem over used, but that really does describe this Heli tour experience. Since it was a charter flight, only me, my guide and the pilot were on board and the tour was tailored specifically for me. I wanted 2-3 landings for photography purposes, and I got 3, including two with spectacular views of Mt. Everest and numerous photo ops. Seeing the Himalayas generally is a thrill, and the flight from Kathmandu to the Everest Landings afforded some of the best aerial photography I've ever had - I took around 325 shots during the tour. One highlight was a landing at the remote Everest View Hotel which can only be reached by flight or trek, and there I had breakfast on a deck overlooking an incredible valley with the Himalayas and Everest in the background. Another was a landing at 17,000' with Nuptse you could almost touch and Everest close by. Wow, is all I can say. I highly recommend this tour as the very best way to view the Himalayas and certainly to get the best views of Everest.

Our trek to Everest Base Camp with Himalaya Travel Adventures was an adventure to remember. From our arrival in the Katmandu airport to our departure eighteen days later, we were well taken care of virtually every step of the way. The Everest Base Camp trek exposed us to the great mountains of the Everest area. We passed through many small villages and lush forests along the Dudh Koshi river valley, up into the incredible mountains of the Himalaya and onward to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patar at 18,100 feet. It is difficult to find words to adequately describe the magnificence of the great mountains and valleys of the Everest area. The tea houses where we stopped for the nights and for lunches during the day provided good, hot food and enough warmth from the yak dung fueled, steel stoves in the middle of the tea room/dining room. The tea rooms offered opportunities to meet and talk to trekkers from all over the world. We were careful to drink bottled water and well cooked food so we had no stomach problems throughout the trip.

We benefited from the years of experience skill of our guide, Kuel, who accommodated our pace and interests. Kuel was a constant source of knowledge about the mountains, trekking in all areas of Nepal and the culture and heritage of the Nepali people. Our porter, Shamir, was always upbeat and seemed unfazed by the 90+ pound load he carried every step of the way.

While in Katmandu for 2 ½ days after our trek, we were accompanied by Sahadev Rana Magar, managing director of HTA and second generation Himalaya and international mountain guide. Sahadev took us to amazing and memorable sites in Katmandu including the cultural City of Bhaktapur, the great Buddha Stupa, Shree Boudhanath, the Patan area and museum, and several other important cultural sites in the City. Himalaya Travel Adventures went beyond our expectations to ensure that our EBC trek and our visit to Katmandu were memorable, safe and enriching experiences.

Excellent company. They took care of us from beginning to end. Again they worried about us from the time we left the US to the time we left Kathmandu. They literally made sure we had everything arranged and if we didn’t, they were willing to help us arrange it. They were excellent in providing the best experience on our Everest base camp trip. The porters and guides were also excellent in being flexible with our minor changes to the hiking schedule. Highly recommend this company.
