We had a Everest Base Camp Trek. We would like to give our recommendations to the company and our guide
• The trip was well managed and organized from start to finish.
• Very professional and friendly staff specially our Guide Sun Bahadur
• IT was nice to have a flexible approach to the itinerary. We were able to add an extra day to the trip due to illness, without needing to worry.
• If we were going back to another trek in Nepal, we would happily book through Alpine Asian Trek and request Sun Bahadur

This is one of the best times in my life. The guide Ang was excellent, was a top graded guy. He had a long standing experience in the mountain. He keeps a vast knowledge about the Himalayan peaks of Nepal as he is also an expedition leader. I will strongly recommend Mr Ang as a guide and Alpine Asian Treks as a trekking operator to any body. I will return to Nepal again next year, to trek with Ang. Thank you.

We had a fantastic time in the Everest Region! We walked from Jiri to Namche Bazar and continue to Gokyo. We cross the Cho-La and done the Kalapatter Everest Base Camp trek. We had trekked back the all the way to Jiri. All that time Padam was our hero through all the long days of walking. With his incredible strength and his everlasting smile he made our day. We would like to recommend to our guide Mr. Padam and Alpine Asian Treks to the other trekkers. Thanks for this wonderful trip.

Flight to Lukla

There are some airlines they operate their regular flight services to Lukla. Due to Lukla airport is surrounded by the mountain, generally the flights operate in the morning. Flight can be interrupted due to bad weather, heavy snow fall or rain and wind. It is advised to have few days extra at the end of trekking so that you will still have time just in case flights are not operated due to bad weather.
