Overview

Book
Combining our classic Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes treks with a stunning crossing of the non-technical Cho La pass provides an unsurpassed circuit trek of the Everest region. We make climbs of the popular Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar along the way, which provide magnificent photo opportunities of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest, and views as far as Kanchenjunga in the east and the Tibetan 8000m peak Cho Oyu to the north. We will also view Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Cholatse, the beautiful pyramid of Ama Dablam, as well as countless other Himalayan peaks. There is also time to visit the famous Base Camp, and during the months of March, April & May, will view the many expedition camps. Each night you will be accommodated in our private eco campsites as well as handpicked eco lodges. Another dimension to this adventure is the famous Sherpa culture providing a truly unforgettable experience.

I found the Everest Circuit and Cho La pass tough, but doable. The itinerary allowed for gradual acclimatisation, which was definitely needed. There was ample time in the day for walkers of all speeds and enough Nepalese team members to assist everyone.

It's an incredible feeling to have toiled for 14 days just to get to Everest Base Camp, getting breathless just getting into a sleeping bag, and then summitting Kala Pathar the next morning when I hadn't thought I could make it. There were rockfalls, snow to our knees and one medical evacuation, but I felt safe, supported and buoyed on by the incredible team the entire way.

What an amazing trip! Being the first group to "break" the Cho La pass after a snowfall, a new years day ascent of Kala Pattar and spectacular views from Gokyo were highlights. I have done two very different but equally life changing trips with you this year - Everest Circuit & the Cho La and Franklin River Rafting & Frenchman's Cap. On both trips I felt 100% safe and looked after - each was physically and emotionally challenging, but incredibly rewarding. I have made friends for life. Can't wait for my next adventure! Maybe mountaineering in South America, Bhutan's Snowman trek or the GHT... Bring it on!!

Although our group was involved in the recent earthquakes, we always felt safe, and had complete confidence that our leader Subal was making the best decisions for the safety and comfort of the group. My family and friends at home were also very impressed and re-assured by the level of communication both online, and directly from Kylie in the Melbourne office. I would definitely travel with you again, and I'm hoping I can make it back to Nepal to finish the trek someday.

My trip was organised brilliantly, leader excellent, sirdar excellent, trekking team excellent, trekking group gelled together, the scenery was outstanding, permanent campsites were very good, and I preferred them to lodges. Food was excellent. As you can read it was outstanding.

No comments for improvement. I have been 3 times with W.E everything seems perfect. You have great team work in place. Special mention to Subal and B.B our leader and Sidar and to the hard working Porters and Sherpas. Wonderful scenery.

Don't feel anything needs improving. Your philosophy on environmental policies and practices attracted similar people to us. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Changed the way I think about a lot of things, for the good. The staff on our trip were fantastic, couldn't do enough for us. From start to finish fabulous.

I just returned from your Everest Circuit trek. The trip was absolutely wonderful! This was my first trip with WE and based upon this experience, I'll certainly include WE in my future travel plans. Our guide, Subal, was one of the keys to the success of the trip. He is incredibly knowledgable, welcoming, professional, diplomatic, and a true leader. He is a huge asset to your company and an invaluable "ambassador" for your clients in Nepal.

I have done many tours with many companies but this was the best. The organisation and teamwork of the porters, sherpas, cooks, and team leader made the trip run smoothly and allowed for flexibility and unexpected events. I was unlucky enough to get sick on the trip which is rare for me. The medication, its application, and First Aid demonstrated by the guide was excellent and meant I was able to make a speedy recovery and still enjoy the trip. Different situations that arose were also dealt with competently and professionally, always with the safety of the group in mind.
