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

I would like the opportunity to praise our leader Sonam Lama who was exemplary. Sonam made me feel very welcome, safe and confident that we would complete our trek based on his experience and knowledge and how to correctly acclimatise us. Sonam was very observant to anyone feeling unwell and would quietly advise appropriate action or medication if required. Sonam is an exceptional manager and I felt I could relax and enjoy our trip knowing very early on that Sonam would take very good care of everyone. I would also like to praise our two Sherpas, Kazi Tamang and Susan Tamang and all the eight porters and Ram the cook who provided excellent and safe food in difficult conditions.
