If only the magic of the Himalayas could be bottled up. The hike was a pleasure from start to finish with picturesque sceneries. Made it to the base camp thanks to our great Sherpas. Not for the faint hearted but oh so worth it.

Loved it and considered all fellow trekkers my friends. Accomplished my goal of reaching the base camp. Enjoyed the people and culture, but did not find shangri-La. Come to the realization that happiness index is a waste of time study. People in Nepal is the same as everywhere else. Happiness is within and can be found regardless location and environment.

Going on this trip was exactly the physical challenge, spiritual refreshment, and overall adventure that I was seeking. Great travelling companions, fantastic guides, and scenery that was unlike anything that I've ever seen before. It was definitely a challenge, but the rewards were many...

Overall I very much enjoyed my Everest experience, and yes it was an adventure and not a trip. The guaranteed week was great in terms of weather (just post monsoon but not too cold), and traffic on the trail - much busier on our way down. There were a couple of very long and arduous climbs, but I think my partner and I arrived prepared for the challenge. We very much enjoyed the people and the country - I am already missing the prayer flags and yak bells, and would like to return for another trek!

Awesome! Amazing! Incredible! These words don't even begin to describe the overall experience of trekking through the Himalaya's. From the minute we landed in Lukla I knew that this was going to be the trip of a lifetime. Although I have been fortunate enough to have travelled through more than 21 countries and participated in 2 other G Adventures tours, this was by far the best experience!!

Well I must say that it is no small walk in the park when you book a trip to Everest Base Camp. It will probably be one of the biggest highlights of my life and I couldn't imagine that anyone would say any different had they walked in my shoes. Thanks for providing me with the tools to acheive this.

This was a trip of a lifetime. It is a pure test of fitness and endurance, but it is worth every bit of pain to reach such a lofty goal that few get to experience. The scenery is the most spectacular I have witnessed in the world and the exhilaration you get when you reach Base Camp is without compare.

An excellent trek which was superbly managed by our leader Shanker and his assistant Robin. The tour exceeded my expectations basically through the expertise applied by Shanker.
