Quite tough walk covering the whole trek to Everest base camp from Lukla to Lukla. The guide and staff of Team Himalaya made it worth the adventure more enjoyable. It was amazing how the porters and guide could walk so fast as well guiding the whole group. Truly amazing, we has the shortest time in Nepal, so we chose the Short and Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek. It was hard due to high altitude thanks god! We were safe from the high altitude sickness, thanks to all staff and guides of Team Himalaya for making the trek possible in short time.

It was quite tough and hard due to rise in altitude, but it was not over difficult as the trail wise. The guide and strong porters was a great support making our trip so wonderful and exciting. It was just like a race against time, not a normal way of enjoying the short and rapid Everest base camp trek. But one can try and enjoy the fastest way to Everest base trek from Lukla to Lukla. Especially for people with 
limited time in Nepal for the trek to Everest base camp. 
 Overall we enjoyed it, as we had short holiday in Nepal, but Team Himalaya made it happened in just over a week duration. Thanks to all staff and guide for making our holiday safe and enjoyable.

Trip Reviews (2)

Quite tough walk covering the whole trek to Everest base camp from Lukla to Lukla. The guide and staff of Team Himalaya made it worth the adventure more enjoyable. It was amazing how the porters and guide could walk so fast as well guiding the whole group. Truly amazing, we has the shortest time in Nepal, so we chose the Short and Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek. It was hard due to high altitude thanks god! We were safe from the high altitude sickness, thanks to all staff and guides of Team Himalaya for making the trek possible in short time.

It was quite tough and hard due to rise in altitude, but it was not over difficult as the trail wise. The guide and strong porters was a great support making our trip so wonderful and exciting. It was just like a race against time, not a normal way of enjoying the short and rapid Everest base camp trek. But one can try and enjoy the fastest way to Everest base trek from Lukla to Lukla. Especially for people with 
limited time in Nepal for the trek to Everest base camp. 
 Overall we enjoyed it, as we had short holiday in Nepal, but Team Himalaya made it happened in just over a week duration. Thanks to all staff and guide for making our holiday safe and enjoyable.
