traveller reviews

The trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar is a wonderful experience. The scenery, people and the organisation of the trek are all superb. The camps and the food are great and the trek is challenging but achievable with reasonable fitness. The World Expedition crew were very professional and great company, and always concerned about our enjoyment and welfare.
