There aren’t enough words to express how amazing this company and team is! My boyfriend and I recently completed the Sleep at Everest Basecamp Trek, and it was above every expectation we could have had!

From airport pick up to airport drop off, and the communication pre arrival – everything was covered so that there was not possible thing to worry or stress about. The communication and preparation in advance of the trip answered all our questions and had us prepared for the trek in every way. We were picked up at the airport, had hotels and teahouses booked the entire trip, and half day tour of Kathmandu, a farewell dinner, and a drop off back to the airport upon departure.

We were lucky enough that our trip ended up being private trip with just us, our guide Horizon and porter Bala. I cannot say enough good things about these two men. Horizon was super knowledgeable about the area and trek, he set such a good pace, and daily preparation – we had no health issues, and no concerns throughout the trek. As our guide, Horizon was able to work with us and look out for us in every way – timing our daily schedule to avoid crowds, having our best interest physically and mentally, and teaching us so much along the way! We felt prepared and supported, and even through the challenging sections (because there will be some) we felt safe, secure, and supported! We had an absolute amazing trip and it wouldn’t have been the same without him! We consider him a friend and truly enjoyed every moment trekking with him.

The teahouses, food, planning, and everything along the trek is already organized and planned – no stress along the way. The all inclusive nature of the trip really allows you to enjoy every moment and the true experience without worrying about small details, paying each meal, booking accommodations, etc.

Finally, I cannot say enough about the team at Base Camp itself – if you get the chance to sleep at base camp overnight – DO IT! To sit in the middle of base camp, interact with the team and climbers, and be treated to hot meals and coffee at 5364m – thats a once in a lifetime experience!

This industry has become a very commercialized experience, but I will say that I felt extremely prioritized and that our personal experience, safety, and comfort was always top priority. This company is more than just a trekking company – they provide experience, connection, and memories for a lifetime! We feel so lucky to have done this trip with Highland Expeditions! We highly recommend them for all trekking adventures and would love to return for another trip with them!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!
