In November 2022, I did EBC & Lobuche with Mountain World Treks. The service was outstanding: everything from the pick up at the airport, clear instructions, hotel selection to the actual trek were great. The guide was knowledgeable and helpful providing the right information. My friend and I always felt we’re in safe hands. This was my first time climbing with a gear but I felt safe and well looked after all the way to the top of the (very cold!) Lobuche peak and back to Kathmandu. Thank you, Sali & the team! We definitely recommend to book with you and we hope to be back very soon! Namaste
