Note This itinerary may change a bit at the time of operation according to local conditions. Group leader have a rights to make some decisions for the safety of the group members and the crew. We would like to request you one thing that Nepal is very remote part of the world and please don't expect very luxury service like in US or Europe, although our efforts will be there. The guesthouse is quite basic and simple. We will try our best to make your trip as smooth as possible and of course we will try our best to make everything in order. However some times because of the communication problems, because of rough terrain we may not reach in the camps in time, you may feel bit difficulties because of high altitude, tiredness etc. All trips arranged by us went well till today so far, Traveling in Everest is an experience of a life time, it is very beautiful but of course bit tough and you have to travel in your own risk as most of the trek route it lies in the altitude of 3000+m always.
