Everest Base Camp trek with Everest Summiteer

One of the World's Best Treks 


When Everest comes calling they say there is no stopping oneself. There are numerous mountaineering options in Nepal. Eight of the 14 mountains over 8,000 meters high are located in this tiny Himalayan nation, and of these Everest is the ultimate challenge.Even before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa set foot on top of the world, the quest to conquer Mount Everest has always been a dream for adventure seekers. 
The Everest region’s beauty is unparalleled with its well-maintained trails and mountain lodges. The trekking routes that lie in this region start higher and stay higher in altitude than many others in the world (even in Nepal), offering unrivalled views of some of the world’s highest and incredible panoramas.

Trek with Everest Summiteer


Dawa Jamba Sherpa is an accomplished Nepali mountaineer and Upeverest’s in-house expert on all things Everest. Dawa has summited Mount Everest five times (four times via the Nepali South Col route and once from the Tibetan North route) and has successfully climbed fifteen other peaks throughout Nepal, all over 5,500 meters, and also summited Cho Oyu (8,201 meters) from the Tibetan side. He has also led treks all over Nepal and has nearly 20 years of unparalleled experience leading treks and climbs all throughout the Himalayas.

In month of February 2018 we did motorbike tour to Mustang it was a Dream made possible by UPEVEREST. All the arrangements were done by UPEVEREST. It really was a fantastic trip.

Completing the EBC and Gokyo Lakes trek with UpEverest was literally a dream come true. From first hour to last, I was looked after to ensure there was no hiccups in the trip. Our guide was incredible, from knowing the name of every single peak in the Everest region (and their height), to helping me when trying to overcome a slightly slippery part of the Chola Pass, he exceeded every expectation. I was thoroughly satisfied by the service, and amazed at the beautiful views I was able to take in on the trek!

Some experiences you remember clearly. And some experiences hardly seem real. Only when looking back at the photos can I appreciate the remoteness and beauty of the Everest region. It seemed surreal at the time, it still gives me goosebumps just to think about it. All the logistics (including Kathmandu) were very professional, helping me feel relaxed and comfortable. The guide was superb, again making me feel relaxed and comfortable so I could just concentrate on hiking. The porters were great as well, especially when accompanying us on Kala Pathhar and Gokyo Ri. We listened to other guides at the teahouses: our guide Mukun was far more detailed in his daily trek briefing and would say "I will find out" if he didn't know the answer to our question. Other guides seemed to say nothing more than "tomorrow we set off at 7 and trek all morning." Mukun's English was fluent and easy to follow throughout. We appeared to stay in the best teahouse in a village, memorably in Namche Bazaar and also in Lobuche when we realized that our teahouse was more expensive (and far nicer) than all the others. Food was generous and the guide ensured meals could run to our required schedule. I wouldn't recommend anything to be different. And there were many times we sat at the teahouses complementing ourselves on our choice of trek company.

As usual, UpEverest always saves me in my "last-minute" travel arrangements. They already did an outstanding job 4 years ago when I had to switch destinations due to an unexpected event of force majour, planning from one day to another my whole week in Butan. The trip was perfectly orchestrated, looking as if it was planned with weeks of anticipation. This time the destination has been Myanmar, and I couldn't ask for a better service and a greater precision picking up the right spots for the limited time I had available. Also, the trip was planned the day before actually departing to Myanmar! I got adventure, local culture, and unforgettable experiences in just 4 days, visiting Yangon, Bagan, and the amazing Inle lake. This company counts with 24/7 dedicated professionals that know how to move fast and effective. Under their umbrella you shouldn't worry about anything, even upon unexpected events. Thank you for everything UpEverest!

My decision for a short break from business was a worthwhile. Not much of an extensive plan except for Everest Mountain Flight and Kathmandu Heritage tour. Two of my friends from US and Vietnam decided to join me on my haphazardly prepared plan. The only thing missing was booking the flight and the tour. I requested my Secretary to do bit of research, as I wanted to book online. Luckily, I have been recommended upeverest.com, which apparently has online payment solutions with VISA/MasterCard and American Express. Few emails exchanged and they made my booking online. I used my American Express to book the trip. I am used to booking everything online and thank god, there is one company in Nepal, who made the online payment possible finally. We had an amazing experience of Everest Mountain Flight and Heritage tour. The guide was knowledgeable and the vehicle was luxurious. Thanks Upeverest.

It’s a common scenario due to the lack of proper infrastructure and the high volume of tourists’ inflow during the peak season. However be assured about the helpful airport staff and friendly Nepali people around you. Our representative will be there to receive/greet you. Just look around to locate our company’s logo at the placard. You will be transferred to hotel. There will be full briefing in the evening.
