We booked a 12 day Everest base camp with heli out package with Green Valley Nepal Trecks. The experience has been perfect from start to finish. We booked with Arjun and he was so helpful. He patiently answered all our questions and took care of us upon arrival and leaving Kathmandu. Our guide Gopal was the best! - honestly cannot fault him at all. He went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we were comfortable throughout the trip. He managed to find us the best tea houses, got us electric blankets when temperatures reached -27°C and kept to our pace throughout the trek. We decided to skip 1 of our acclimatization days and push on ahead - he was very flexible and accommodated us with this. Gopal was so positive and happy the whole way through. He kept us entertained with all his stories, singing and dancing. Be sure to buy his book - Footsteps of Gopal! He's had such an interesting life and he will keep you motivated the whole way through. Our porter Bisam was also great. He worked so hard and always had a smile even after having to carry our bags throughout the journey. Be sure to book Green Valley Nepal for your trekking adventures, and ask for Gopal as your guide. You will not regret it! Thankyou for an amazing trip Green Valley!Yasmeen , London , United Kingdom
I got to to Base Camp on New Years Day 2022 as a 22 year old single, female solo traveller. I couldn't fault my guide or porter and felt safe at all times. It was an incredible experience often being the only one on the trail. Sometimes I was also the only one staying at the tea-houses, which gave me a very unique opportunity to experience the Sherpa & Nepalese culture without it being packed with tourists. The inclusions on the tour were fantastic and Arjun was very helpful in Kathmandu in organising other parts of my holiday in Nepal & Bhutan.
The weather was great on the way up to Base Camp - I wore a shirt, pants and sometimes a light fleece each day (although I do get hot when walking) but on the way down it had just started to lightly snow so I wore the big snow jacket provided by the company until I got back to Namche Bazaar where it was warmer.
The walk up Kala Pattar was also incredible but I found it much harder than getting to base camp. Definitely don't skip it though - the views from half way are still absolutely incredible!
I chose Green Valley Treks when it came to booking my EBC + High passes trek in April 2021—and boy am I glad I did that!! In summary, they have more than earned my highest recommendation.
Raj, the coordinator, was incredibly accommodating from the beginning and closely worked with my schedule and ever-changing COVID guidelines to help book my trip. I only had 9 days off from work, and was comfortable with my training, but the shortest trip offered by any other tour operator was over 12 days. However, with Raj, he created an individualized itinerary for me and assigned me a fit guide/porter duo to set me up for success. He even personally picked me up from the airport and dropped me off after I completed my trek. My flight to Lukla got cancelled due to the poor weather, and Raj diligently worked with me to organize a Jeep to Phaphlu and a private helicopter to Lukla the very next morning due to my already annotated trip.
My guide, Bisho, was enthusiastic, friendly, and was proficient in English. He did everything in his power to ensure I was able to accomplish my goal of completing the EBC+High pass trek in 8 days; and simultaneously, have an enjoyable and memorable trip. He ensured he pointed out all the notable peaks during our week of clear skies, as well as the history and significance of Sherpa culture and Buddhist traditions. Although I pre-medicated with Diamox, I felt some signs of altitude sickness one evening in Lobuche due to our lack of acclimatization days. On that evening, Bisho played cards with me, offered to give me a head massage, and sang a beautiful Nepalese song. He was up-beat, thoughtful, and calm throughout the trip—if you have the option to choose a guide, I would strongly recommend you ask for Bisho as he will not disappoint!
My porter, Jit, was similarly wonderful and ensured he kept up with our ambitious pace. He acted as an assistant guide and helped out with ordering meals and ensured that I was well-taken care of.
In summary, Green Valley Treks is an absolute gem amongst the 100s of tour coordinators offering the EBC +/- high passes trek. They have earned my highest recommendation, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends!
Green Valley's guide took very good care of myself.
When I got altitude sickness, my guide went with me to the hospital to make sure that I was fine before he left. and when I was discharged from the hospital, Arjun came to to pick me up. Since I went trekking alone in Nepal at that time, their care when I got sick made me very feel so warm and therefor so grateful. Arjun also took time to drive me to the airport for travelling to Lukla and coming back my country. I appreciated their service and dedication to their customers.
Excellent trek to EBC with Green valley Nepal treks. Nicely organized trip, summited Island peak as well with a guide Paste. Will definitely return soonMarcela H , United States
