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

Everest Base Camp & Kala Pattar

This trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of the world's highest mountain. Our carefully devised itinerary with a number of rest days offers an exceptional way to acclimatise safely. On a trip of a lifetime we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya and taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy your trek. A slow ascent through wonderful Sherpa villages allows us time to enjoy the scenery, wildlife and visit a number of monasteries. Our trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both Everest Base Camp and the nearby peak of Kala Pattar (5545m) for spectacular views of Mount Everest. On our return journey we savour the high mountain views from our unique private permanent campsites in the company of our Sherpa guides, whose exceptional experience, knowledge and passion for trekking in the Khumbu add a further dimension to this memorable trek.

traveller reviews

My girlfriend and I just got home from Nepal, and still can't forget one person from our trek.

Our guide, Sanjay and his team. We got snowed in at Loboche (first time in 20yrs at that time of year apparently?) and never made it to Everest Base Camp. But thanks to some very wise decisions on Sanjays behalf, he got us all down safely the following day in 2m of snow, with 5 sick people in our group (including myself).

The rest of Sanjay's team were amazing too - Djan, the front guide, was always willing to help out, and teach us some Nepali words and phrases along the way.

Considering we didn't achieve what we intended, we still had an incredible time. The best part being the manner in which Sanjay kept the group cohesive despite split decisions on whether to go to Everest Base Camp or descend. He is an excellent representative of your company.
