I just returned from the 12 day highland expedition trek to EBC. From the beginning planning stages, Passang was extremely responsive and helpful to create our personalized trip. Aakash, our guide, kept us very safe with the trekking, food, tea houses and gear. He answered all our questions about culture, religion and the mountains. Our Sherpa Buddhi was friendly and strong, always had our bags at our door when we needed them. Our trip from beginning to end was professional, organized, fun and very safe. I can’t recommend this company enough. No problems or complaints, only glowing memories and warmth in my heart for the company, Nepal, and the Himalayan mountains. I cannot wait to go back and am trying to hold onto the peace I feel in my heart! Wonderful company and people.

Passang, thank you for being my one point of contact throughout the booking process and the long lead-up to our Everest trek. We both experienced the challenges that we were looking for. And although a little beaten up and tired, had a wonderful time. I wish you and Highland Expeditions the best of luck in the future. To Sonam our guide and new friend, I don’t think you realise how in awe we are of your own mountain climbing career. Thanks for looking after us. We’ll see you all again I’m sure.

A group of 4 of us did the Everest base camp and Gokyo Lakes heli trek with Highland Expeditions and we had the most incredible experience. From the moment we booked the trip, we were provided with excellent information on the trip, detailed instructions on planning & preparation along with recommendations as well. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal we had an expert local guide and a fantastic ground crew in Kathmandu who were all very professional, friendly and eager to make our trip as smooth as possible.

Nepal is a beautiful country and we were very glad to have the Highland Expeditions Team to show us the beauty of Nepal.

We did the Everest base camp trek & helicopter return in May of 2023 with Highland Expeditions and it was one of the best hiking adventures I’ve ever had.
10/10 recommend doing this trek and as I’m writing this review I’m also booking the next trip with them!

I recently had the absolute pleasure of embarking on a luxury Everest Base Camp trek with Highland Expedition, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the experience. From start to finish, this journey was nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the exceptional planning and guidance provided by Passang, the owner of the company.

Passang’s attention to detail and commitment to ensuring the trek was perfect in every way truly stood out. He not only provided us with all the necessary information and advice before our trip but also took the time to personally address any concerns or questions we had along the way. His knowledge and passion for the Himalayas were evident and added an extra layer of authenticity and depth to our experience.

During the trek, we were fortunate to have the expertise of our guide, Phunru, and his assistant guide, Mingma. Both were incredibly knowledgeable about the region and its history, always eager to share interesting facts and stories along the way. Their calm and reassuring demeanour made our journey even more enjoyable, and their ability to adapt to any situation while keeping our safety a top priority was truly commendable.

Additionally, I would like to express my gratitude to our porters, Ak and Milan. Their unwavering support and determination in carrying our belongings throughout the trek were simply amazing. Their strength and cheerful spirits, even in challenging conditions, made us feel incredibly well taken care of and allowed us to fully immerse ourselves in the beauty of the surroundings.

The highlight of the entire experience was undoubtedly the opportunity to sleep at Everest Base Camp itself. This was made possible by the meticulous planning and excellent logistics provided by Highland Expedition. The feeling of waking up surrounded by majestic peaks and witnessing the sunrise over Mount Everest is indescribable. It’s an experience I will cherish for a lifetime.

Overall, I highly recommend Highland Expedition for anyone looking to embark on a luxury Everest Base Camp trek. The level of personal care, attention to detail, and commitment to providing an unforgettable experience truly set them apart. Thank you again to Passang, Phunru, Mingma, Ak, and Milan for making this journey an absolute dream come true

Highland Expeditions fulfilled my lifelong dream of trekking to the Basecamp. It was an amazing experience right from the moment I connected with Passang to inquire about the trek. The group was very well organized and made sure we are safe and got all the possible amenities despite the scarcity of resources; especially as you go to higher elevations past Dingboche. Passang, Akash, Mingama and Karma in particular did an amazing job of making the trek a fun experience. What I like most about Highland Expeditions is their flexibility and ability to customize your trekking experience even if you are in a group. They carry oxygen tanks and keep a very close eye on the group’s physical state and adjust plans accordingly. I will definitely recommend them over anyone else. Hoping to do a few more hikes with them in the near future with my family.

A great local company that looks after you, its guides and its staff. I have done Ama Dablam and Everest with them. Both were very well-run expeditions and led to successful summits. Thank Passang and the Highlands team for all your efforts for the airport pick-up to reaching my goal. Can’t recommend these guys enough.

Everest Expedition 2025
Stuart Harris

May 2023 my son and I made the trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with Helicopter return. We were also fortunate to be able to spend the night at base camp on May 16, 2023. One of the reasons I picked Highland Expeditions was because they offered the option to sleep at base camp.

The team at Highland Expeditions did an excellent job taking care of every detail of our trek. Passang was very responsive to my pre-trip email questions and provided a sense of confidence that they were experienced and knew what they were doing.

We were fortunate to travel with another couple from Germany which made the trip even more enjoyable. The weather was very much in our favour, it rained the first day but after day one it was sunny and perfect. Our group consisted of one guide, one assistant guide, two porters and four trekkers. We rarely saw the porters as they left out early each morning carrying our duffle bags. The trail was a bit more crowded than we thought it would be.

You must prepare yourself that the Tea Houses are not luxurious and the trek is very physical. There is no heat in the Teahouse bedrooms. Even with pre-trip physical conditioning and taking Diamox, it was still a challenging trek. Kalapathar was the most difficult part of the trek.

We had a magical experience with Highland Expeditions. From the communication beforehand with Passang to the pickup, the whole organization and execution, everything was highly professional and we could not be happier to have chosen Highland Expedition for the trek. We were also able to get a customized package, that meet all our wishes. Also, the fact that the group is quite small is a big plus! Passang made it all happen so we could enjoy our visit to Nepal without having to worry about anything.

We especially loved spending the night at base camp – the crew there made it extra special for us and this was definitely the experience of a lifetime. Special thanks to our guides Prasant and BB – they made sure we were taken care of, safe and healthy at all times and they were just the best fun as well.

Highly recommend Highland Expeditions!!!

I had the recent pleasure of just returning from amazing Nepal and an incredible two weeks there doing EBC. Passang was fantastic with all communication and super flexible on my timings and my wants/needs. My guide Ang Rita was good and took great care of me on the entire trip. I honestly cannot wait to go back in 2024 and do some higher peaks. Thanks, amazing team 🙂
