Everest Base Camp Trek
Bardzo dobrze zorganizowany trekking. Całkowita opieka agencji od przylotu do Kathmandu, aż do wylotu. Noclegi przed i po trekkingu w hotelach k bardzo dobrym standardzie. Podczas trekkingu opieka świetnego przewodnik (bardzo mocno polecam przewodnika o imieniu Genesh!). Cena niezwykle konkurencyjna w porównaniu do innych agencji, a organizacja na najwyższym poziomie! Serdecznie polecam!
Annapurnna Circuit is a must.
Just last week my daughter and I trekked the Circuit on a private tour. The trip was put together by Hari at Welcome Nepal Treks. Our brief was quite specific in that we wanted a full turnkey bespoke trip including airport pick up, accom, tour guides in the major cities and the best guides available. In short it was a fairly big ask and I was skeptical as to what to expect.
From the get go we were looked after better than expected from airport pick up to airport drop off 10 days later. Our guide for the trek was Prem who was an absolute gentleman from the get go. Prem was very much at home in the hills and we couldn’t find fault in the way he conducted himself and had each day well planned out. We made a couple of changes along the way which would normally cause concern, nothing was a problem for Prem or Welcome Nepal Treks [WNT] and changes were made without any issues.
I have done a few Treks and the Annapurnna Circuit was ideal for myself and 21 yo daughter. We had a trip of a lifetime and can’t endorse Hari and the team at WNT high enough.
Everest Base Camp Trek 2017
I joined Welcome Nepal Treks (owned by Hari Khadkha) for an Everest Base Camp Trek between 05 and 23 Oct 2017 for 16 Days. Back in Apr, 2017 three of us did a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan with them and were quite impressed with their service so decided to take on the more challenging EBC Trek with the same Tour Operator owned and managed by Hari Khadkha.
Further one of the most decisive things for choosing this trek with Welcome Nepal Treks was our guide in the previous tour, Ngima Ongel Lama who was such a wonderful person, someone a whole lot more than a guide. We were very much comfortable and impressed with his service so I decide to do the EBC Trek with Welcome Nepal Treks on the condition that Ngima (pronounced Neema) would accompany me. I wanted someone who had a lot of experience, knowledge and patience to accompany me on this solo trek and I was sure he was the right choice.
Well, now that I managed to complete my trek very successfully, I can safely say I couldn't have found a better guide than Ngima. He was simply amazing and without him I wouldn't have been able to do this successfully. So if you ever wanna do EBC Trek, Welcome Nepal Treks is highly recommended as Hari gave me a very good price for a solo trek but do insist on having Ngima as your guide coz he's a lot more than highly recommended.
EBC is approximately 120+ km in length both ways but depending on the route and by treks you do, this can only go higher. At the end of my trek, I'd done somewhere between 160-175km over 15 Days. That's a one tough yet an amazing trek you should attempt at least once in your life time.
Why is EBC trek so dangerous? It's the High Altitude and as a result Lack of Oxygen. You start your trek in Lukla which is at 2,840m (9,318ft) and you end up at EBC at 5,364m (17,600ft) which is an altitude gain of 2,524m (8,280ft). If you attempt Kalapaththar, that is at 5550m (well over 18,200ft).
Remember, when you cross the 12,000ft mark, that's the killer zone and Oxygen level starts to decrease rapidly. Therefore you have to keep an eye out for Acute Mountain Sickness or AMS which can kill you in no time with very little warning. Also trekking for so long means you’re prone to injuries quite easily such as sprained ankles, diarrhea, headaches, etc.
Why do you need Ngima as a Guide? Coz he's done EBC Trek (and many other high altitude treks) more than 50 times and I’m not kidding. He’s such an easy-going person with exceptional qualities. Not once you’ll regret of having him as your guide.
Thanks to his experience, he will be able to see if you’re suffering from AMS or not before you even know it. Remember, knowing this in advance will mean life or death as AMS is a sudden and a silent killer. Further he knows the Everest Region better than the back of his hand. No matter where you are, he knows the best places for viewpoints, have safe drinking water, the best paths and guest houses to stay at.
Having him almost guarantees you have a successful trek and I can vouch for him from my very own experience.
Why go with Welcome Nepal Treks? Well, Hari offered me a very attractive price and he’s so reasonable and easy to deal with. Quick to respond to any inquiry and will help you tailor-make your journey just like he did with mine. It was a great experience all in all and I’ll have no hesitation in partnering with them for any future hikes in Nepal.
Well, I hope you all will have a great trek if you ever visit the Everest Base Camp. Good luck folks!
Yoga trek zum Annapurna Basecamp und KTM
Danke an Hari und sein Team, dass sie meine Reise nach Nepal unvergesslich gemacht haben. Normalerweise reise ich sehr selbstorganisiert, doch die Entscheidung mir auf meinem Solo-Trek Hilfe zu holen war genau die richtige. Ein Rundum-Sorglos-Paket ist es dann geworden. Ich habe ein 12-Tages-Trekking zum Annapurna Basecamp mit Guide und Yogalehrer gemacht. Morgens und Abends Yoga und zwischendurch zwischen 4-7 Stunden wandern. Ein riesen Kompliment an Dipak und Madhab, die Hari ausgesucht hat, um meinen Trip perfekt zu machen. Dipak kennt jeden noch so kleinen Weg in der Gegend und gibt einem das Gefühl einen Bodyguard zu haben. Er kümmert sich, um dein Wohlbefinden, das beste Zimmer im Guesthouse und dein Seelenheil. Die Yogastunden mit Madhab waren genau das richtige, um den Trek geschmeidig meistern zu können. In meinem Kopf rattert es schon, welche. Trek ich also nächstes in Nepal machen soll. Ich komme definitiv wieder, denn das war mein bisher bestes Erlebnis nach knapp 50 Reiseländern. Da ich so zufrieden war habe ich mir von Hari am Ende in KTM auch eine Stadttour und einen Flug über den Everest organisieren lassen. Er macht jeden Wunsch möglich und ich kann Welcome Nepal Treks uneingeschränkt empfehlen!
Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Welcome Nepal Treks did an excellent job guiding our trek to Annapurna Basecamp. Hari was very organized and made sure the trip went as smooth as possible. Our guide Kishwor was experienced and ensure we were safe the entire trek. Definitely a reliable option for anyone looking to experience Himalayan trekking.
“Wonderful experience with Mr Hari Welcome Nepal Treks and Tours”
The guide and porters were absolutely amazing making our tour a memory we will have for a lifetime
Everything from food to learning Nepalese was supreme cannot fault their attitude.
Highly recommend this incredible group and will definitely use them when I return to Nepal again.

Me and my group thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nepal thanks to Mr Hari who received us at the Airport and was helpful,proactive and very patient. Thanks also due to driver at Kathmandu and Pokhara. All in all,a great experience. We appreciate the effort put in by Mr Hari Weicome Nepal Treks and Tours.
Amazing Poon Hill Trek!
This was our first time traveling to Nepal and we had no expectations at all. Our plan was to stay 6 days which included our 3 day trekking trip. We had booked our flight tickets separately and arranged the trekking trip online. Mr. Hari was the point of contact through WhatsApp was very respectful, kind and prompt in responding to our inquiries abut the trekking trip. He had asked for our flight tickets along with our passport details. Hari had organized everything from hotel bookings, food to transportation that was according to our flight tickets. When we arrived to Nepal International airport, we were welcomed by Mr. Nawa, who was a very kind and helpful being who knew English fluently. The hotel we stayed in was Thamel Eco Resort, it is peaceful and the staff were very warm and welcoming. We later continued our journey as per the itinerary set by the company. We reached the following day to Pokhara and stayed in the Hotel "City Inn", spacious room with beautiful views from the balcony. The next day was our 1st day of the trek and we met our Tour Guide who goes by the name Ganesh, a wonderful, down to earth and one of the most awesome person whom you will ever meet if he turns out to be your tour guide. He was really caring, helpful and punctual throughout the trip. He also helped us in a situation where there was slight misunderstanding where we thought that we didn't require a porter to help us carry our heavy backpacks since it was our first time trekking. Our experience with Ganesh was superb and we would highly recommend Ganesh as your tour guide.
Overall the company will sort out all your needs.
