We did the Everest Base Camp (“EBC”) via Gokyo Lakes trek with Himalayan Glacier. The mountain scenery was spectacular! Because we opted for an all-inclusive package, we have only limited info/knowledge regarding matters like air tickets to/from Lukla, hiring guides and porters, arranging permits, selecting accommodation, etc. We will talk about what trek we did and why, and we will share any insights gained. This post will be an overview and is heavy on the practical info. We will cover the segments in other posts with lots more photos.
Two friends and I recently returned from HGT’s 25-day four-country cultural tour: northern India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet — including a visit to Mt. Everest Base Camp on the Tibet side and an overnight at the historic Rongbuk Monastery Guest House. Travel in Tibet — especially at the higher altitude in the Everest environment was physically, emotionally and culturally challenging but beyond memorable. The entire 25 days constituted the trip of a lifetime. None of those positive feelings would have been possible without the expert, diligent, precise, conscientious planning of Himalayan Glacier Trekking (HGT). Our party of three is “of an age,” and HGT worked with us for months in advance to tweak the itinerary to meet our desires and needs, especially to optimize our opportunities to adjust to higher altitudes.
We had a lot of trouble finding information on the Net about taking kids trekking in Nepal, so hopefully this will help other families thinking of booking with you.
We did the Everest View trek with our three children – 11 year old girl and twin 7 year old boys. We were very apprehensive before going because we didn’t know how the kids would cope with altitude and the rigours of trekking in a developing country – and no parent wants to put their child in danger – but we had one of the best holidays ever.
We chose this trek because it gave us more days to view Everest than similar treks offered by other companies seemed to, and we wanted to make sure we could see Everest even if we had a couple of days of bad weather. As it turned out, we were very lucky to have perfect blue sky weather pretty much the whole time, but we still found the length of the trip and duration of hiking each day spot on.
All of us are extremely impressed at the way Rishi and Min guided us on the Lang Tang Trek. Everything was extremely well organised from beginning to end and the judgement Rishi showed in various situations where we were snowed in and somebody had slight signs of altitude sickness was absolutely spot on. The environment of the trek itself is spectacular, but we knew that would be so. The food was good and the accommodation fine.
However, we could not have done it without your help and if we do another trek in Nepal, Tibet or Ladakh, we will certainly seek out your help.
Who do not want to know the interesting facts associated with Mount Everest and the glorious Mount Everest Expedition? Location, history, climbing risk, and other interesting facts are the most intriguing things that come at first when mountaineers dare to think climbing Mount Everest. Even those trekkers who are only thinking for Everest Base Camp Trek, it is suggestive to know the basic information and facts related with Mount Everest.
