Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp - Trip of a lifetime!

5
Words cannot describe how amazing this trip is...if you have even a tiny inkling to go, do not hesitate. Every single day, without exception was amazing; the mountains are floor to ceiling, vast and beautiful. It is not your average walk in the park, to get views like this you have to work hard for it!

This trek was an awesome, amazing and fun adventure. It was made even more great by the friendly travellers from around the world that we kept meeting on the way and back. Our guides were more than amazing and really made the trip for us helping us every step of the way and guiding us through the paths. It was an adventure of a lifetime.

Everest Base Camp January 2015

A truly fantastic trip to a beautiful part of the world. The extreme cold at night was manageable with a good sleeping bag supplemented by blankets/duvets provided by the teahouses and was compensated for by the fact that the trail was quiet, though by no means empty. Daytime temperatures were fine and at all but the highest altitudes we were normally walking in a baselayer and fleece by mid-morning. It was, however, very cold once the sun went down, although the teahouses did have stoves in their common rooms. In some, there was no running water and the squat toilet had to be flushed by bailing with a jug out of a barrel, having first broken the ice! But we soon got used to this and the benefits of clear days, a quite trail and stunning views more than made up for any hardship.

12 days of trekking (with a couple of days in Kathmandu on the end) in the Himalayas, walking from Lukla, where we flew to, to Everest Base Camp. The accommodation was teahouses, similar to youth hostels, where you order your food from the menu and the family that owns the teahouse will then cook it for you. The walking probably averaged about 6 hours per day, with stunning views of the Everest Range. Weather was very clear, perfectly mild in the daytime but cold at night!

Excellent trip well organised and going in January meant trail and teahouses very quiet. In many cases we were the only occupants of the teahouse. Nights cold but not a problem with down sleeping bag and blankets. Walking temperatures fine and trail largely clear of snow and ice.

I found the Everest base camp trek to be a magnificent experience and adventure, from the serenity and splendour of the mountains to the chaos of Kathmandu.

Great trip, wonderful team mates, excellent support. Tea houses quite basic, especially at altitude - hot water would have been nice and rooms with just a tiny bit more comfort. Food fine. We're planning the next one. I'd prefer to pay upfront rather than all the extras, such as food.

Trip of a lifetime !

Words, almost fail me to describe how wonderful my trip to Everest Base Camp was. This was a lifelong ambition of mine to visit/see Mt Everest. The group that I was part of were so friendly, from the moment I met them on the plane from London to Delhi, a very interesting mixture of talents and experiences, who provided extraordinary encouragement, and joviality throughout the tour. The scenery was second to none, the accommodation, better than I had expected, and the food was good, yet basic but plentiful. Everyday produced more and more highlights, I often thought that I would run out of superlatives to describe my thoughts and inner feelings. My perspective and outlook on life has been changed forever and I cannot wait to return to the area again.

I've traveled extensively on mountaineering expeditions in the past. The Everest Base Camp trip was one of the hardest and most enjoyable. The Exodus team throughout was fantastic. Our trip leader Lhakpa Lama was by far the best leader I have traveled with. His team of Kami Sherpa, Endeva Sunvwar and R.B Sunvwar were superb. We were a team of 16 trekkers and they looked after each of us like we were family. However, you don't really know how good your leaders are until you run into trouble. I've climbed all over the world and had been over 6,000 meters in the past with never any problems. On this trek, right below Base Camp, I developed pneumonia. The care I received and the medical skills demonstrated by Lhakpa were unforgettable and life saving. It was decided that I should be evacuated by horse to the emergency medical facility in Periche. It took us over 3 hours down those steep mountain trails to get there and every step of the way I was accompanied by Kami who was always looking out for my condition on that horse, helped me walk when I needed to and was by my side until we regrouped with the rest of the team. I recovered and was able to rejoin my team on our trek down and have made it safely back home. I will never forget my team but especially our team leader who has now become "little brother" to me. Exodus does so much in that part of the world and they are recognized as one of the best. And, I fully agree. I would not take that trek with anyone else. The Exodus team has earned my highest level of trust and respect. If there is a bit of adventure in your heart, go. But go with Exodus, you will not regret it.
