I would recommend this trip to anyone with a short time frame and want to avoid the downhill walk. The trek was wonderful with well placed itinerary and good guides. 3 of us in our mid-fifties managed to reach the base camp due to our guides care and attention to the details. The service provided by Highland Expeditions was second to none. We were worried about the helicopter fly out at the end of our trek due to poor weather. But Passang and his team managed to pull this off with great comfort and professionalism. The weather cleared for a while giving us just enough time to get off the mountain. The helicopter picked us up right in time and we were on our way to Kathmandu just like that. Many were still waiting and even at the last moment of our trek, we were reminded that we made the right decision to choose Highland Expeditions.

A wonderful trek to the beautiful country accompanied by great guides. Oct 17th, 2019 an unforgettable day when I got my feet on long dreamed Everest Base Camp. Our guide Kunga and his team provided our group of 4 a wonderful support, we are still grateful these days. Wonderful experience and thank you Highland expeditions team. 

Everest Base Camp Trek

The managing director, Passang, has perfect English and is a true Sherpa by heritage and experience. This business is a family affair and his father, Kunga, who has guided 8000m 40 times!!! Lead our expedition. We all succeeded on making Everest base camp and kalapatthar despite living at sea level our whole life. The experience of Kunga and Passang got us to the top. We had all the best accommodation which made the trip enjoyable and comfortable. Highland expeditions did their very best to make our trip amazing. Honesty and value. We paid the best price compared to all the people I’ve spoken to since and we had a helicopter descent. 10/10 would recommend and will use highland expeditions again soon for the Annapurna circuit.

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek
John McNeil Sep 27, 2019

Having known the people who started this company a long time ago its grown a lot since then and just gets better and better. I and a group of friends took the challenge of Everest base camp trek with Island peak climb during Spring 2019. I have personally visited Nepal a couple of times before and this time I decided to go big by climbing a 6000m peak.

I knew Pasang from before and I knew that he is the man who can pull this together even at a short notice and yet deliver a great experience. I got in touch with Pasang and he helped me with all the planning and preparation for the climb. On trek & climb, it was outstanding with all the experiences and services delivered as said. On our return, the weather was not good for the fight to operate so without any further delay, Pasang got us in a helicopter on the same day.

Took a while for me to leave a review of our climbing experience but they did a great job

I would like to thank Passang and his team at Highland Expeditions for organising and running the trek just so perfectly. Highland Expeditions was professional and courteous from the initial booking to the end of my trip. Very efficient and well informed that help me plan my trek appropriately. 

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days
Luiz Carlos Wanderer Jul 30, 2019

Excellent service and care, during all the tour.
I hired Highland Expeditions to arrange a tour in Nepal, to know Pokhara and Chitwan.
From the very first, mr. Passang Tsering Sherpa was taking care of all details and arrangements.
Unfortunately, the peaks desired (Anapurma and Everest) were not possible to view, because of weather conditions.
Nonetheless, all the tours were very good, thanks, also, to mr. Passang efforts and care.
Highly recommend services!

Trekking to Manaslu and Larkya Pass was an amazing experience. The trek was hard especially for novice trekkers like us, it definitely pushed us to our limits but the support and care we received from the boys helped us accomplished the trek. The crew were wonderful, knowledgeable and a joy to spend 2 weeks with. 

Overall great experience and we hope we’ll have the chance to return again. 

Manaslu Circuit Trek
Thomas Bronner May 21, 2019

This was a great introduction for multiple days of climbing at high altitude. I joined Highland Expeditions for Three Peaks Climbing (Mera Peak, Island Peak and Lobuche Peak). We started with Mera Peak, crossed Amphu Lapcha pass before hitting Island peak and finally concluded with Lobuche East. I choose Highland Expeditions based on the itinerary of their climb and the details they provided me after our first exchange of emails. The approach/itinerary was well-tailored with more days for trek and acclimatization, safety was always a priority as our group was backed up with oxygen system, medical kit and a sat phone, everything on trip was included and taken care of. The guides were amazing, young, talented, caring, responsible, and knowledgeable which made it an unforgettable experience

All these certainly made a big contribution to my summiting and I imagine this was true of others also. April 2019 Climber 

Three Peaks Climbing
Ian Stewart May 11, 2019

Staying overnight at Everest base camp was definitely a lifetime experience. The entire trip was well planned and the guides were outstanding. Most importantly, the service delivered to us on the trek and at the base camp was beyond our expectation. We are really glad that we did this trek. Overall, it was a fantastic experience with Highland Expeditions. 

Sleep at Everest Base Camp
David Neal May 01, 2019

Summited Island Peak (20,000ft) without any serious issues and all this was made possible by the expert team at Highland Expeditions. The overall leadership, logistics and services were excellent during the entire trek & climb. The itinerary includes acclimatization trek to Everest base camp, which I personally think is really helpful before attempting the peak. Compared to other companies we had extra rest days and easy days which I feel helped me. 

Our climbing guide (Ang Sona) and Sherpas were nothing short of excellent. They were such good people to guide you all the way to the summit of Island Peak and back. 

Island Peak Climb
James Houghton Apr 10, 2019

It was certainly one of the most awesome highly enjoyable experiences we have ever had in half day time. It can not be explained. It must be experienced. One of the best tours we ever joined. 

Arriving at Kathmandu airport before departure you are given a safety briefing. You then board your helicopter and are treated to the most breathtaking views of the Himalayas. Fly over the Himalayas, quick photo session at Kalapatar and have breakfast at Everest view hotel. It’s worth every penny. 

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour
Karen Shore Apr 08, 2019

My overall experience of Everest three high passes trek with Highland Expeditions was fantastic. Everything on the trek and the logistics, I found to be of the highest quality and standard. The sleeping bag and down jacket they provided was amazing, keeping me warm even on the coldest nights. The trek was well planned and every detail was planned and executed with precision. I would definitely recommend Highland Expeditions to anyone I know who is interested in this experience. 

Everest Three High Passes Trek
Yaw Yean Chan Apr 03, 2019

I have little experience on trekking and this was my first trail and was a tough one. Without the support and help from the trek leader and the porter, i would not have made it to the high camp. Thank you Phunuru and John for the great support during the hiking

Mardi Himal Trek
Joseph cheng Apr 03, 2019

The trip was well organized, although ABC was closed, they were able to quickly recommend Alternative route, Mardi Himal Trek.

The city tour especially Shivaratri festival was very crowded but the guide was able to bring us through the queue and to the right spot. The guide was able to adapt to our requirement as we are mainly photographer. Lastly, the porter (john) was a hero, big salute to him

Mardi Himal Trek
Ian Morrison Dec 02, 2018

I highly recommend Highland Expeditions to anyone looking for trekking and climbing in Nepal. I climbed Mera Peak together with the team of Highland Expeditions and what an experience it was.

The entire trip was well planned and the itinerary was devised nicely with slow ascent and more acclimatization, the entire staff was amazing, especially our guide Pemba, who was incredibly friendly and expert in his work. In general Highland Expeditions delivered a great service.
