Everest Base Camp lies in the gorgeous Solukhumbu District. The region comprises of various ethnic groups, with one of those being the highly respected Sherpas. The traditional living of Sherpas leave many in amazement, but it is true admiration for their understanding, expertise and guidance of the Himalayan landscape. Every year thousands of Sherpas are taking trekkers through the mountains, risking their lives to summit Everest and other great peaks such as Lhotse (8,501m), Cho-oyu (8,201m) and Makalu (8,563m).

Thanks for Mr.Ashok help to arrange the trekking, accommodation and transport. It was a great experience that I ever have trekking before. Their services, guide (Mr.Ganga) and porter was excellent! The prices of the package was reasonable, Mr Ashok very patience when I have some questions and he will explain very clearly to me! Mr.Ashok company is the best services in Kathmandu! I will plan the next Annapurna trek with him again!
I wanted to go solo from the very beginning, I was convinced by a friend who did the trek on her own, I was planning on doing this in 2019. However an opportunity to go to India presented itself and I decided since Nepal is only 2 hours flight from India, I thought I'll swing by and do the trek. Since I was short of time, I decided to just use an agency instead of doing it on my own. Destinations Unlimited was recommended to me by a friend. I reached out to Ashok on facebook, he answered all my questions, and from there, I sent a deposit and told him I am willing to join a group to save some money. Unfortunately, there is no group starting on the date I wanted so I had to do a solo trek, why in hindsight was the best outcome. There was a 2 day delay because of bad weather, first in Lukla, the next in Kathmandu, I ended up going to Lukla via helicopter, this means I have to pay $200 for me, and $200 for my guide, who I met in Kathmandu. I got a refund for the canceled flight, which means I am down only $200 (I am writing this as a warning, so you can plan for it, this is unpredictable, you know, weather, so I suggest make arrangement in advance for a guide that is based in Lukla, maybe Ashok can work this out, just to be sure). Anyway, the guide, Bijay, was super amazing! He is an excellent, experienced guide, couldn't have done it without him. The trail is probably the most beautiful trail in the world, the trek is super demanding, you have to traverse 5 chain bridges, which make it like you have climbed 5 mountains, so much uphill/downhill climbs. In the end it was super worth it. Included in the program is a climb to Kala Patthar (5,644 masl). I found EBC to be about 5 to 7 times harder than Kilimanjaro. Ok, sorry, I digress, Destinations Unlimited is a great company. They selected the best tea houses for their guests, and there was dinner and a show after the trek in Kathmandu, sort of like a congratulations for a trek well done. Highly recommended, book your EBC trek with Destinations Unlimited.
Truly enjoyed the journey and their experienced and patience team of guides and porters made sure we successfully arrived safely. The arrangements were almost flawless except we wished we could control the weather. They are accommodating and affordable in their packages.
What a wonderful and amazing trip provided by Ashok and team. Our 12 days hike to EBC was guide by Ashok team guide Rai provided us with best info and guidance to tackle the dairy hike track and AMS situation. Moreover our team were provided best meal and comfortable accommodation to ease off the tired day hike. Bravo Ashok and Rai
I highly recommend them without any reservation . We were taken care since we arrived in Kathmandu April 26th and left on May 12th. They guided us safely all the way to EBC and made sure our needs were met . They briefed us and answered our questions daily. Our guide was “seasoned experienced “ and always helping every one in the group . I highly recommend them without any hesitation . Thanks Destination Unlimited . Truly a memorable experience
Our group comprise of 4 family members and a family friend, ranging from the ages 28-60years old. We practically had no training or very little training ( 247m being the highest point in our training) prior to this but we made it to above 5000m with minimal glitches...all these made possible with the professional planning and services from Ashok, our funny, caring and helpful guides Ganga and Badal and not forgetting our 3 very2 strong porters Sudeep, Tanka and Vera...without all of you, we might not have made it there. Thank you for one of the most unforgettable and beautiful experience in my life and for your friendship ....my no.1 choice for future trekking.
We were a group of 5 family/friends of varying fitness levels doing our first trek. Ashok and his team was very professional and accommodating. Our guides Ganga and Badal made sure that we were well fed and taken care off, and was great fun to be around with! Despite this being our first trek, we manage to make it to 5000m above sea level, as well as Kalapathar! Once again, many thanks to Ashok for organizing our trip for us, Ganga and Badal for being our guides, as well as our porters Vena, Tanka and Sudeep for carrying our bags. We wouldn't have made it without any of them!
Unpredictable weather in Lukla…
The weather in Lukla is unpredictable. Even in the best season of October & November, the weather may be bad; so, there is possibility of delay or even cancellation of the flight. Thus, it is always recommended to spare at least 1- 2 more days before your return flight back home. Or sometime might need to take chopper if you interested to always prepare extra budget if you could able to.
