Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

traveller reviews

I found our Everest trip excellent. The main guide was very knowledgeable and all other guides ensured safety at all times especially at altitude. The tents and equipment were very good and appropriate for the colder weather conditions. A special mention needs to go to the cook who provided us with incredibly tasty and healthy meals and the porters who carried our bags. These people are the real legends of any trekking experience and always deserve a generous tip. Thank you World Expeditions for a very professional but fun and life changing experience.
