Solo Everest Base Camp Trek

It was an amazing experience – ons in a lifetime! I am solo female traveler and I was thinking to have an easy and well organized trip organized by an agency, so I found the Nepal High Trek! Since I’ve booked till the last day everything was well organized. Anjan was responding to all my messages and wishes. I felt cared and helped all the time with any issues! I do strongly recommend the Nepal High Trek! See you next time!

Amazing Everest Base Camp Trek in January 2024

I can’t help but feel immense gratitude for the exceptional service provided by Nepal High Trek from the moment I booked my trip. Their knowledgeable guide, not only ensured my safety throughout my journey but also enriched the experience with fascinating insights into local culture and geography.

The logistical aspects, including permits, accommodation and meals, were seamlessly arranged, allowing me to focus solely on the trek. Despite the harsh environment, the accommodations provided were comfortable and welcoming. Overall I couldn’t be more impressed with their service. Thank you for everything!

Everest Base Camp Trek

I decided to do this trip solo in June 2021 so wanted to book an Everest Base Camp Trek with a company before arriving in Nepal. After researching I came across Nepal High Trek & Expedition and spoke many times to Anjan, who was excellent in answering all of my questions and providing me with information about clothing, weather conditions etc. Airport transfers were included, as well as a hotel in Kathmandu and a guided tour of the city before leaving for the trek.

Everest Base Camp Trek

Not many young men these days are willing to put 12 days aside to climb to heights of over 5000m in the cold and conforms of Nepali life, let alone take there mother with them! From stepping out of Kathmandu airport to our safe return back to our hotel room, Anjan and Robin created the most memorable and fulfilling journey the two of us could ever ask for.

I can 100% recommend Nepal High Trek. Trekking in a private group with a local company is definitely the way to do it. You can customize your itinerary, travel at your own pace and make changes if need be.
