I recommend Highland Expeditions for both treking and expeditions. Really nice team, good organisation and really friendly. I did EBC and Lobuche East and I am 100% satisfied of the trip provided and organised.

We cannot rate Highland Expeditions highly enough. We had an incredible experience, from start to finish on our Three High Passes trek.

The booking was incredibly easy and we felt fully informed at all stages of the process. We were welcomed at the airport by one of the Highland guides and taken straight to the hotel in a private taxi where Pasang was waiting to greet us. We had a brilliant sight seeing tour to see some of the cultural sights in Kathmandu (with a private guide) before our trek.

Then Pasang introduced us to our guide for the trek and ensured we had all the kit we needed. Our guide was very informative throughout the trek and very positive even when we doubted ourselves. He was very knowledgeable and could always answer our questions.

Finally, after the trek Pasang took us out to dinner to celebrate completing our trek, it was lovely to catch up after a few weeks in the mountains. He also booked a car and made sure there was someone to help us get to our bus stop when departing the hotel!

Overall the trip felt very personal, thank you to Pasang and the brilliant team at Highland!

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each member of the incredible highland expeditions team. Planning the entire trek down to fine details and execution was brilliant, kudos to Passang and the entire Highland expeditions team. All the way from the start at KTM with the charter plane, to the mountain lodges which was the nicest place to stay with great choices of food and excellent hospitality. The team lead Arjun along with Kunga sir and asst. leads, Jeeth, Dev and Ambir made the entire trek very comfortable and relaxing.
Many thanks to the entire team for guiding, inspiring and taking care of us with no compromises. Their ever smiling faces kept spirits high through out the trek.
Though it was exciting to complete the trek to EBC successfully, it was sad to leave them while getting on to helicopter the next day morning…
I wish Highland Expeditions the very best in their journey of hosting trekkers and creating lifetime memories.

Recently completed the Gokyo Lakes/EBC Trek with Highland Expeditions. Nothing but good things to say about the entire trip and the company. The level of communication and attention to detail exceeded what I would expect and I felt like I was in great hands the entire time. They were there the whole time for me, both before the trip and during, to address any questions or issues that popped up and I would definitely use them again in the future. Highly recommend Passang and his team!

The Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes trek is nothing short of a masterpiece in adventure travel. The route, the scenery, and the overall experience were absolutely stellar. Our guide’s expertise and the support team’s dedication made the trek a true 5-star journey. The reflections of towering peaks in the crystal-clear Gokyo Lakes and the sense of accomplishment at Everest Base Camp are memories etched in my heart. For an unforgettable Himalayan experience, look no further – this trek deserves every star!

We did the Manaslu circuit trek with Highland Expeditions and were very happy with the excellent organisation of the whole trip and the professionalism and friendliness of everyone involved – from management to guide, porter and drivers. The trek was very demanding and challenging, but also stunningly beautiful. Our wonderful guide Angrita was always helpful and patient when we were struggling and looked after us really well. Porter Angnuru took very good care of our luggage while also being incredibly fast. I highly recommend booking any Nepal trip with Highland expeditions. Hopefully, we will be back for another trek with them one day!

During the Inca Trail last year, the idea of hiking to Everest Base Camp matured. I contacted Passang from Highland Expeditions during December and was impressed by the speed and accuracy of the provided information.
After the exchange of some mails I booked the trip for the second half of September, just after the monsoon.
Phunu Sherpa picked us up at the airport, and once in the hotel Passang, the owner of the company, was also present to greet us. Immediately the next day we flew to Lukla and our 9 day hike started. Phunu was a great guide, with an incredible knowledge and experience of the Sagarmatha National Park, which is the park you’re walking through during the next 9 days !
This trek is really a ‘once in a lifetime experience’, but do not underestimate … it’s not a walk in the park but rather a physically tough ride. Walking above 5,000 m is demanding a lot of your body. But the apotheoses at the end with the visit of base camp, the view of these huge mountains you can almost touch and the sunrise the next morning from Kalapatthar, is unforgettable.
A part of the luxury version are the better lodges, especially during the first 4/5 nights of the trip. But also the return at the end of the hike, after reaching base camp, with a helicopter was an amazing experience.
Hiking in such an amazing area requires respect for nature ! This is exactly where Highland Expeditions stands for. A professional company with an important respect for nature and local people.
Want to add EBC Trek to your bucket list … I can only suggest Highland Expeditions.

Overall trip was better than expected. Our guide (Akash) knowledge of the people, culture, religions, and region was top-notch. The tour was very well organized and the safety of clients was paramount. Loved every minute of it. Will definitely book with Highland again.
