Reviews

Diana Tzinov

USA

I traveled with my 21-year-old son. I've been dreaming about the EBC trek trip for many years and I had lots of anxiety built up. I started talking with Tika months before the trip. I had tons of questions and additional requirements. Tika was not only super quick with his responses, but also he was very helpful and caring. We've exchanged so many emails that I felt he became a close friend of mine. Words cannot describe the excitement we felt when we arrived in Kathmandu. We were overwhelmed by the friendliness, warmth, and hospitality not only of Tika and Trek Ways Nepal but of all Nepalese people. As I already mentioned, before the trip, I was anxious, BUT the moment we started the trek I instantly knew - we'd be fine. I felt we were in very good hands. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the mountain, the history along the trek, and everything around it. I will never forget his advice about how to prevent altitude sickness - stay hydrated just enjoy the trek and be happy. We followed his words and we didn't have any altitude problems or any other problems. I have to admit - we cried tears of joy with my son when we reached Everest Base camp and then the top of Kala Patthar - watching the sunrise over Everest and Trek Ways Nepal was with us every step of the way. I have never expected to have such a smooth trip and I will always keep the memories of it deep in my heart. I wish Tika and Trek Ways Nepal to be very successful and to make dreams come true for all of their clients the way they did for us!!!

Since we are staying at the luxury lodges, we do not require sleeping bag because we will be using electric blanket. But just in case if there is error in heating system then we better to carry sleeping bag. We will provide it for you.
 

No, on this trek you do not require Crampons. There will not be ice on the trail to Everest Base Camp. If you plan in the winter time then it is good to have crampons.
 

Yes, you can buy gears in Kathmandu at better price than your home but quality may not be the same. There are some branded items like Rab, North Face, Black Yak, Marmot etc. There are local brands as well. You can rent sleeping bags and down jackets but the other items you need to buy.
 

It is suggested to follow our standard itinerary. However, you can walk faster and finish the trek earlier but it is your own risk. Due to the altitude issue we have designed our itinerary and strongly suggest you to follow it.
 

It depends up on timing, weather condition and your health condition. In general, you will be spending 30 minutes at the Everest base camp. However, you can spend more if time permits or if your health, weather condition is good. This is what you and your guide decide.
 

Yes, you can go Kalapatther for sunset but it will be freezing cold after sun goes down. In general, many people go for sunrise. You can do both is you want to.
 

No, we do not carry oxygen on this trek. Because there is oxygen available in the lodges and you can use if needed with extra cost.
 

If you get sick, we will take you down if you can walk. Or you can take horse down (you need to pay extra for horse ride). If you have basic altitude symptoms then we will stop for the day and see how you feel. If you feel better then we will continue up otherwise we will take you down. If you are serious then we will take you down by helicopter either in Lukla or Kathmandu.
 

If you need to take helicopter rescue down to Kathmandu then we will coordinate with helicopter company who will deal with your insurance.
 

Unfortunately, you cannot buy insurance here in Nepal. You need to buy from your home country that should cover trip cancelation, trip interruption, helicopter evacuation, medical and health expenses etc.
 

Tipping is not in our culture but guides, Sherpa and porter expect tipping. You can tip at the end of the trip.
