  • Everest base camp trek with view Nepal Everest trek review

    Everest Base Camp Trek 13 days with View Nepal Treks and Expedition The Communication with View Nepal Treks was so quickly and fully answered my questions before the trek started. They picked us up from the airport for a smooth transition into Nepal. They owner briefed us very well before start our trek and took us reliable trekking gear shop in Thamel to make sure we were equipped well. Our guides Pasang and Laxman we great, they were so helpful and always happy to solve the problem.They made sure to put our safety first and always checking our AMS symptom. They were also great to have fun and communicating with locals and quickly create a homely atmosphere because they both were locals and they brought us up to Everest Base Camp with no rush and push up beyond our limit and made all trip quiet sure for room and food. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone considering the trek to EBC. If you have any questions regarding the Owner Mr. Bhupendra and his company View Nepal Treks and expedition and any topics about trekking and touring please drop me a message. Thank you all team for the wonderful time in Nepal.

  • Everest Base Camp Trek in March Everest Base camp review

    I traveled to Nepal to do a trek to Everest Base Camp trek in March.  The scenery once you got away from Kathmandu was amazing. I hired the fantastic guide named  Kumar Adhikari  through View Nepal Treks and Expedition P. Ltd. and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to explore anywhere in Nepal. He is very friendly and very knowledgeable. He also has a great sense of humor. It is possible to do this trek without a guide but I can definitely tell you that I without our guide our group may have never even gotten out of the airport in Kathmandu to the starting point of Lukla because of weather and the large number of people wanting to get seats on the planes. As it was a trekking season started and bad weather before we started our trek.  The domestic Kathmandu airport is a zoo and having Kumar  to deal with this instead of us was worth it for sure. I think having a guide made my experience a lot more interesting. I can now cross seeing Everest up close off of bucket list.

    It was a best trip with many mountain view with challenges with nature and of course View Nepal Treks is our first choice for our next trip.

    Once again Thank you View Nepal Treks for arranging such a nice guide  Mr. Kumar  for my trip to EBC.

    Cheers

  • Everest Base Camp Kalapathar trek with View Nepal Treks jJRujX2iD9frCKbrhypX

    I consider my finding of View Nepal Treks to be a real fortune. During the search phase I was recommended by a friend who have taken the service with them and he said services and tourist products offered by the company is competitive. During the negotiation phase I enjoyed efficiency with which my queries were handled. This made the decision-making on the Everest Base Camp Kalapathar trek stress-free and really easy. And my personal encounter with the company was even better. The company delivered to the promise. Logistical arrangements, including airport pickups, hotel in Kathmandu, accommodations and meals during the trek, were impeccable and my guide Dev and porter Dawa sherpa were professional and friendly.I would like to praise the company for the ability to attract very interesting and pleasant people to work for them. In summary, I feel honored to join the group and I am satisfied with their service and I am happy to recommend View Nepal Treks to my friends and all other people planning a trip to Nepal. As for me, now View Nepal company is my main entry point into the world of trekking and adventure trip in Nepal. Visited October 2016

Frequently Asked Questions

This is one of the exciting treks on world highest mountain base camp; walk is moderate but adventurous due to high altitude of above 3,000 meters. We have set enough rest days to get acclimatize well before heading to Everest base camp at 5,334 m / 15,500 ft high.
Depending upon the season of trekking, autumn and winter months can get cold above 2,000 meters especially morning and night time but the day is pleasant with sunny days most of the season. Other season beside monsoon / wet months is pleasant with occasional thunder showers during late afternoon.
As you will be trekking on mainstream trekking trails, the lodges are nice and cozy with attached bathrooms available till Namche, from then on lodge are simple and basic but clean with common bathrooms. Foods are as per the menu from Nepali set meals of Dal Bhat, Noodles (soup or fired) continental / Chinese to Mexican and Italian with Indian verities. It is better to stick with vegetarian food while on trek as it is not healthy due to hygiene. Higher above 4,000 m food menu are limited due to remoteness and high terrain climate conditions.
