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

This trek up to EBC was nothing short but astounding! The views are breathtaking and the locals were incredibly charming. The experience will last you a lifetime as I found myself missing the friends I made on this trip as soon as I returned home. I definitely will book another adventure next year and perhaps, every year following! Randeep, Padam and the crew were funny, helpful and overall, fantastic
people! They are like family now. Great company, superb experience! Sad when it ended. You will love it!
