I don’t believe I can rate this company high enough. I’m not sure I can find the words to describe the high standards of service we received.

From the moment I decided to use Highland Expeditions Passang was available on email and WhatsApp answering all my questions and helping me to change aspects of the trip and nothing seemed to be a problem at all.

Once we arrived we were met by Dawa with a big smile like we were already friends. Everything was then taken care of for us. We were taken to our hotel, booking in was done for us, all transport arranged, we didn’t have to worry about anything except what would would like to eat or drink. KGH was a gem in the heart of Thamel and we couldn’t of asked for a better base on our trip.

Now for the actual base camp trek… it was absolutely perfect. Even if we spent time trying to think of a fault we couldn’t come up with one.
Our guide Horizon was amazing, he also became our pace setter, our photographer, our teacher and our friend. We can not praise him and Bala high enough. We felt safe at all times, we knew we could trust them with any questions or problems we had and nothing was ever an issue.

We were surprised at how good the tea houses were on our stay. You read horror stories but we were really happy with places we stayed and again Horizon went out of his was to make sure we were comfortable at all times. The trip itinerary was perfect to avoid altitude sickness and we had an amazing time throughout.

Another thing I wanted to review was the personal touch received from Passang. He is a very busy man dealing with all the trips and expeditions taking place yet he always makes sure that he meets you at the hotel before and after and we went for a welcome meal. This personal touch also makes Highland Expeditions stand out amongst other companies.

I will definitely be returning to Nepal and would not consider using any other company.

Amazing company with great sherpas for our Everest base camp expedition! Very well planned from the moment we landed in Nepal until the day we left. Couldn’t be more happy!
