Holiday type

Travelling with a local operator

This holiday is operated by a company based in the holiday destination and they will be able to provide expert local knowledge. They will be able to tailor make your holiday to suit your requirements not only concerning the dates of travel but also typically the standard of accommodation, and thus price. It is rare for local operators to be able to help with the booking of your flights.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Everest base camp trek

Our trekking company is wholly committed to responsible tourism. On our treks & tours, tourism helps improve the standard of living for the local people by generating income for the local community through purchasing of local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities.

We employ well-trained & experienced local guides and hire local porters whose load limit is 20-25kg. Our guides will give a briefing about responsible tourism e.g. rubbish disposal, giving food scraps to domestic animals, paying the porters to carry out trash, using a fire pit when camping, not picking flowers, using kerosene instead of firewood, avoiding bathing/washing clothes in streams, using local tea houses or camping sites. In addition the small group size of 4-10 people helps to minimise the impact on the environment.

On this trek, we stay at local lodges operated by Sherpa communities such as Khumbu lodge, Everest lodge, Himalaya lodge Gompa lodge. These lodges minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood and disposing of their rubbish appropriately.

Our trekking company provides financial donations for the local school (US $2 per visitor) & health post (US $3 per visitor). We provide educational materials for students such as copies, pencils, ball pens and sports equipment (foot balls, basket balls), and provide equipment & medicines for the health post such as tablets, eye drops, high-altitude tablets, plasters and bandages. We also support the Kvresthali Women society with financial donations (US $5 per visitor) which provides education for impoverished adult women and provides funds for goat and vegetables farming and road repair.

On this trip, our guests will have an opportunity to give donations to these causes, and visit and make donations to the Kunde hospital and School at Khumjung. Travellers can also support Sherpa students by giving educational materials such pencils, crayons, books and paper etc.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Reaching Everest Base Camp and conquering Thorung La Pass on the Annapurna Circuit!!! In reality however there were many more!!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Prepare adequately and avoid taking anything more than what you really need.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Undoubtedly... the locals need tourists badly..... Sadly consumers of the most well known products/brands leave their packaging for all to see..... Finding a balance between short term gain and the maintaining of what makes a place special is very hard to achieve...

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent... Great local travel agents run by two dedicated brothers who just could not do enough to please, were highly experienced and delivered on their promises. Their guides including partnership with other operators that were also outstanding. People - both locals and fellow adventurers added to the enjoyment and fun..... Beauty of those lovely mountains and trek routes will remain in my memory for ever....

The most memorable part was the first time I saw Everest- what a site!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Bring lots of warm clothes & sleeping equipment and water purification (buying water becomes very costly and produces many plastic bottles). It is hard some days but so worth it!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Definitely benefited local people because we stayed with them the entire way but I am not sure how the impact on the environment was minimized.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was fantastic! I had a beautiful and relaxing time (even though it was a physical challenge. My guide was knowledgeable and fun and I met some great people along the way!

Be aware it gets really cold up there at times....

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Getting to base camp was the most exciting part of our holiday. It was pretty amazing to see Everest up close and personal!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


We got very lucky with the weather, considering it was the rainy season when we went. But the views of the mountains were clouded a lot of the time.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, this holiday definately benefited the local people. We stayed at local teahouses and ate local food. There was very little impact on the environment as we stayed with places with solar heating and used minimal electricity.

It was a great holiday, with very a helpful and friendly guide a porter.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole experience was memorable from beginning to end...

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Make sure you take a sleeping bag that is comfortable to minus 20. Be aware that it is sometimes difficult to get hot water for showering. There is little of no electricity when the sun goes down - so take a head torch and some batteries, then at least you can read your book even if it is dark.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes - the local people part rely on tourism, although it is a very eco friendly type of tourism, we donít make any rubbish, donít use heating, hot water, there is no transport - only your own 2 legs to trek with.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Amazing, exhilarating, breathtaking, physically and mentally challenging...

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The most exciting part of the holiday was achieving my goal of hiking to the top of Mt. Kalapatar, above the Everest Base Camp.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be very careful with what you eat... maybe bring some food along. Be careful to drink a lot. Donít overexert yourself. If it takes a day longer, so what? In fact, one should probably plan for an extra day or two, just in case.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Definitely minimized impact on the environment. We were very careful to pick up after ourselves, and even after other people. We benefited the local economy. Also, I visited with a school and would consider raising money for this school upon my return home.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent. Very good company. Very professional. Great guide. Only positive and I would recommend without reservation.
