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

My trip to Everest was an amazing experience. I fell in love with Nepal, the Himalayas and Nepalese people. I am sure you hear this a lot :)
I reached Kala Pattar. So I am proud of myself as we have seen many people would not even reach Everest Base Camp, six of us made it to Kala Pattar.
Prasant is an amazing leader! Bibi, Mecke, the porters: all were amazing. Food was amazing and we have been looked after all the time. I loved Nepalese food and I ate so much Mo-mo that members of our group gave me the nickname "Mo-mo". :)
I would like to thank you for all your help answering all my questions, even going beyond, and providing me the best trip to ensure I had an amazing time in Nepal. I certainly will go back to Nepal.
