Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

traveller reviews

Five Stars all the way with World Expeditions!! Excellent campsites - wake up in the most beautiful places in the world, surrounded by craggy, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild rivers and picturesque Nepali villages. Great food, cooked on site by WE cooks and helpers, all trained in hygienic food preparation and service. I had fresh and cooked vegies every day! Plus lots of brekkie options, and delicious soups and meat dishes at night. Group leader Roy spoke excellent English, was very experienced and professional, and could answer all our questions. Roy helped us with finding WIFI spots, charging our devices, finding showers and good laundry options. He was also very entertaining with his singing and guitar! Among many other things he gave us guidance on what layers to wear each day, and most importantly, monitored everyone for signs of altitude sickness. He also walked at the back of our group to keep an eye on everybody and give care and advice to anyone with any problems. Our Sherpa Meg who guided the trek from the front and also helped serve the food, brought us our early morning cup of tea and our wash-bowls, and anything else we needed, was a busy man all day long and nothing was too difficult for him. We had porters to carry our kitbags and they were very well organised by the Sirdar Gopal, picking up our kitbags every morning and delivering them to our new campsite before we got there ourselves. Great work guys. I had a wonderful experience on the trek, amazing scenery and Nepali culture, just lovely people in our group (in fact the best!), we had lots of fun together! The trek was quite strenuous with many, many steep inclines and declines, it was a great achievement for me and I was fortunate to go with such wonderful trek buddies and such an excellent organisation as World Expeditions.
