This is the most amazing place ever! It is exceptionally rewarding to do but does require a lot of perseverance. I still recommend for anyone of any kind who wants to go, but be aware of how much you’ll need to prepare and expect for.

If you’ve ever dreamed about doing this - DO IT ! Challenging but absolutely indescribable, you have to experience it . Way too huge to be captured in vids or pics . Research the outfitters and buy as much “ luxury “ as you can afford .✌️

Had such an amazing time on this track. Heavy traffic though.

Just finished this trek (oct 26th) It’s absolutely amazing! Tough but very doable. I’d say you’d want to be at least in good shape. I saw people of all ages but I couldn’t imagine doing this when I’m in my 65+ years. It would be more brutal than fun. Just have to take it slow and if you’re like me and end up with altitude sickness (headache, throwing up...) just take some medicine and a day to rest. (I got sick in Dingboche) But by the next day I felt much better and was able to push through, it was totally worth it! You’ll meet some amazing people not only locals but people from all around the world who you’ll bump into at each town doing the same trek. You’ll make friends with people from all over and hear some amazing stories along the way. If you’d like to see some of the picture that I took you can see them on my Instagram @blakewsmith_

Excellent trip, my son and I did this solo (no guid or porter) we had a map and carried our own equipment which made the trek way more challenging. Majority or trekkers use a porter or guid to carry up to 15 kilos for them, I would advise this for inexperienced trekkers. We used the map several times however the trail is well defined in most areas, again I would advise using a guid unless you are competent with a map.
It’s an amazing trek with beautiful views all the way to EBC, while there summit Kala Pathar as it is a must, the views are outstanding.
Plan for about 3,000 rupees a day spending, the food and lodges are more expensive the higher you get. The most important advise is to have fun and take your time, altitude sickness is very serious and can get you at any time. When arriving at your destination each day, climb higher to help acclimatize before returning to your accommodation, this will help with sleep (which gets more difficult the higher you get).

Did this trek in oct 2017 was amazing

The most beautiful trek I’ve done. I’d recommend this to anyone! We did Lukla to Mount Everest Base Camp. Absolutely amazing the whole way!

Completed this trek several years ago, but remains my all time number one. It was a solo trip and a personal journey, an unforgettable experience. I did get altitude sickness one day but it was easily remedied by taking an extra day of rest. The tea houses are such an amazing part of the experience. There is nothing like it. Take your time, relax your pace, and take it all in.

Did this all the way back in 1987. It was a longer trek back then (yes, I'm an old timey guy telling you whippersnappers to get off my lawn), starting in Dumre and ending in Pokhara. I was 22, and the best advice I got before the trek was NOT to hire a porter. I probably would now, but maybe not, or make my son carry the heavy stuff. This was the trek of a lifetime. Not just the scenery, but the people you meet and what you learn about yourself. If you have the chance to do this hike, you should.

Trek of a life time! Fucking stunning! So many amazing guest houses, mountains! and of course amazing people!

did this in 2010. can't wait to go back

Very challenging--but worthy hike! I strongly suggest training before you take this on, if only to make the experience more enjoyable. Make sure you have poles, they will be a life saver. Bring a porter will be key as well, but a guide can be either worth it or not depending how experienced of a hiker you are. If anything, they can help you along with the language barrier if you do not speak Nepali.

Great trekking route. Enjoyed every moment.

Beautiful trek with incredible views throughout the entire journey. I trained pretty strongly so the physicality of it never really affected me. The most dangerous part for me was not being able to adapt to the food at the cats teahouses. Drink lots of water and give yourself some acclimation days and you'll be fine. I used Gadventures and don't regret anything about it.

This is a classic for a reason. the views are amazing but its about the cultural exchange and the people you meet. Thorang La is the highlight. you need to bring clothes for -10C and shorts for 25C an amazing trek through several biogeoclimatic zones from jungle to tundra. A bucket list item

Very challenging long treks with pretty much equal uphill and downhill. The most beautiful place I have ever seen. The turquoise glacier river, the amazing snow covered mountains. Be in good shape for this hike so you can fully enjoy!! Villages along the way are a refreshing treat. Randomly in the middle of nowhere a really cool town emerges with vibrant markets (Namche Bazaar). What’s even more amazing is that everything used to build these villages was carried up by porters, donkeys, and yaks. Once in a lifetime experience I am glad I jumped on.

Insanely amazing experience. 132kms, 14days and one of the best things I’ve done in my life! Highly recommend, take it slow and enjoy the ride.

it was an amazing hike in this book I read.

My wife and I did this trek in April 2018- bucket list adventure for me to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was a profound experience; the mountains, surroundings, and wildlife were even more stunning than I imagined and the local people are amazing too. I was sad to leave and though typically I don't go back to the same place twice, I long to return to Nepal. Just an incredible trek. We went with Canadian Himalayan Expeditions out of Toronto, and I appreciated that our guide kept us off the main trail for much of the outward journey. The main trail is fantastic, but was packed with hikers, porters, and pack animals- sometimes jammed to a standstill. It was nice to be off the main trail for much of the hike.

People say you can do this in average physical condition; I have a hard time seeing that. We did over 250 miles of hiking with heavy packs, including stretches of the AT in north GA- from January through March to prepare. I felt good but there were still a few days that were really tough. If you approach it thinking average condition and little training is fine, I suspect you could make it but will be miserable. As noted, it's not that the hikes themselves are particularly tough, but given the altitude, fairly primitive conditions, and long days of climbing for 2 weeks (we took 15 days out-and-back) I think you'd be much more able to enjoy the spectacular scenery and amazing people if you train some. But do it; you will not be disappointed!

An absolutely awesome hike! Great if you go with an experienced organisation that takes all the guess work out of it, makes it safe and gives you the best chance of making it to EBC in regards of altitude sickness! Biggest tip....take it slow and drink lots of water so you can adapt to the altitude, and that way you get to soak in the spectacular views! Pick a company like Everest One and you actually get to sleep up at EBC

Unfortunately my view of gokyo lake 3 was frozen. However the adventure leaving at 4am to chase the sunrise up on gokyo ri was an experience! Again not for the light hearted Trekkers.

Definitely not for the light Trekkers, really pushing you to the edge. Both endurance and stamina is a must+++++!!!!

Also some good crampons, rain jacket, proper poles and shoes, a trekking pack and a big thermos would benefit your experience of the trip.

I would do this every year if I could. It's so worth it and such an amazing, beautiful experience. I went to everest base camp which I think anyone of average physical shape could do, I went on to kaLapattar which was 18k ft, and I actually found that difficult, where as everest was moderate. From what I saw from others, its the elevation more than the difficulty of the hike that people found challenging. If you love hiking, mountains and culture, you will very much love this experience.

challenging but rewarding. great views
