On the border between Nepal and Tibet lies the highest mountain in the world. Mount Everest was first climbed by New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953 and while reaching the summit might not be possible for everyone (the permit alone costs more than £6,000), an Everest base camp tour will get you amongst the action and some spectacular views.

The trek follows the footsteps of famous mountaineers such as Hillary and his climbing partner Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, stretching along the valley of the Dudh Kosi river and the Khumbu Glacier, before ending with an ascent of Kala Pattar, the black rock to the west of Everest.

    everest Base Camp !!!

    An amazing trip, superb service from the outset, myself and my 15yr old son embarked on this trip with some trepidation. It was well organised and our guide and the manager were excellent. The itinerary was set out in a manner so as to allow acclimatisation and rest thereby enabling completion without exhaustion. We started the trek with our guide as an acquaintance but finished as part of the Lumle family. Well worth going and a great company to go with!!!!

    Base camp Everest

    I had an exceptional holiday and I am glad to have chosen Lumle Holidays Company. Although they’re a small travel company, they will give you the personal assistance at a very reasonable price, which big companies cannot give. They will take care of you from the moment they meet you to the moment you go home. I cannot thank enough Narayan, Narendra and all Nepali staff for their excellent service.

    Everest Base Camp Trek

    Lumle Holidays were cheaper than their competitors, which left us a little suspicious. There proved to be nothing to worry about and Lumle provided an excellent service right from the start and to he very end. Nothing was too much trouble for any of their staff. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

    Everest Base Camp Trek with Lumle Holidays

    I was a little concerned initially because I couldn’t find any reviews for Lumle Holidays and they were a lot cheaper compared with other companies, but thought I would take a chance.

    We did book flights independently but the service was offered by Lumle. We arrived at Kathmandu and was met with a car to take us to the hotel that was outside the main tourist area, it was basic but clean, staff friendly and the area was fine. The Kathmandu city tour was excellent (although we had to pay our own entrance fees) and the guide very informative.

    Then the flight to the mountains with our guide Herka (not sure of the spelling). His English was not brilliant but he taught us some Nepalese and we got along great. The trek, scenery; experience was out of this world and can’t really fault it. The tea houses that we stopped at were basic but that added to the experience. The guides also act as waiters when you stop and do help with basically anything. The porter we had was brilliant, how he carried all the bags up the mountains I don’t know.

    All in all an excellent trip that I would recommend to anybody. We will be visiting the region again in the future and intend to use Lumle Holidays and hopefully Herka as a guide again.

    Everest Base Camp Trek

    What a fantastic trip, a big thank you to all the staff at Lumle Holidays for their dedication and providing us with an excellent holiday. From the very start when we made the initial inquiry to the flight back home, everything went smoothly. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful at all times. When we made the initial enquiry with Lumle we were a little suspicious because their price was far cheaper than other companies. However, this proved to be nothing to worry about because the service we received was second to none at a very good price. Thanks to Narayan for the excellent booking service and a big thank you to Narendra and his team for all their efforts in making us feel very welcome in Nepal.
