Well organised trip with excellent support from guides and sherpas; nothing was too much trouble. 5-star experience with Highland Expeditions. The trip was everything I expected and more, fantastic mountain scenery.

Everest Three High Passes Trek

This was a spectacular trip, led by a very caring and supportive team of Guides. Expectations were superbly managed and everything was taken care of. The helicopter ride itself was spectacular and a real buzz. Thank you Passang and your team at Highland Expeditions for a wonderful trip. I have nothing but praise for Highland Expeditions and staff.

This was my first visit to Nepal and thanks to Passang and his team on the ground, it was filled with lifetime memories that I will treasure forever. Well planned itinerary, proper safety backup, great logistics and excellent team. A wonderful experience; varied and eventful.

Amazing mountaineering holiday with a wonderful team of experienced guides; exceeded all my expectations. The whole trip was perfectly organized with fantastic support from the guides all the way. It was a dream holiday that was made a reality by the wonderful team of Highland Expeditions.

Would strongly recommend Highland Expeditions based on my experience. 

Mera and Island Peak Climb

I have done three treks with Highland Expeditions since 2016. The recent one being the Everest base camp trek on November 2019. All of my trekking adventures with Highland Expeditions were fantastic and created many special memories. Passang is very responsive and had been really helpful in the planning of all my treks. I did my first trek solo to Annapurna and ever since Passang and the team at Highland Expeditions have been greatly helpful and supportive.

I wouldn’t imagine choosing any other company over Highland Expeditions for any of my future trips to Nepal.

My trip with Highland Expeditions was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend this company!
I booked a trip to Everest base camp and it was totally the trip of a lifetime I was hoping for. All the logistical details were nailed and the staff was top-notch – friendly, informative and really took a keen interest in making our trip successful and fun.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I did the Island Peak and Everest base camp trek with my son, and what an incredible experience. It was hard, it was cold and it was amazing. The summit day was challenging but rewarding. A tough climb to 6189 metres but slow and steady does the trick. Thank you again and we made it

Island Peak Climb

My Mera peak expedition resulted in a successful and safe climb to the summit and it was achieved through the support and care of our guides (Pemba and Dorje). Their well-paced itinerary also greatly helped us to get to the summit. The Summit climb was tough, tiring and super COLD. All in all a challenging and rewarding experience.

My friends and I, 3 brave ladies from Malaysia did the Upper Mustang Trek with Highland Expeditions in mid-Oct 2019.
Our guide Kunga and 2 porters were very friendly and very helpful.
We were well-taken care.
This was my first experience of trekking in my lifetime and felt proud for myself that I make it and it’s going to be an unforgettable lifetime memory for me.
Thank you Kunga, Passang and the 2 porters.

Upper Mustang Trek

The trip was wonderful and well organized. The guides were very helpful, the entire accommodations during the trip were beyond our expectations. I couldn’t have researched and booked a more extensive and unique tour myself.

Everest Comfort Lodge Trek
Eunice Ng

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
Royce Surman

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

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
