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

It was the most wonderful trip and experience. Nepal is such a special and amazing country and its people is truly its soul. I am pretty sure that our group leader, Sonam Lama sent a video of our group collecting rubbish on our trek. I hope this becomes a permanent activity on your treks.

The world is a gift to us and as the most intelligent creatures on the planet (supposedly!) it should be our responsibility to to protect and look after it. I would also like to see a change in the treatment and available work to the porters and local staff by travellers. In our group we made a conscious effort to incorporate the boys into out evening card games, they taught us to cook the Nepalese food and learn some local language. We even cooked for the boys on the last night (with their help) and sat all the staff down and fed them and then we all ate together! It was such a highlight! It's a sacred land and the locals are so proud, passionate and committed to working and looking after each other and the foreigners. I had a feeling that a lot of travellers were not as respecting and grateful to these magnificent locals. For a lot of travellers it seemed more of a goal to trek to various places rather then a passion or privilege. I hope time can change this and bring the passion and respect beck to these magnificent destinations as the locals view upon it.
