Great Experience

28th October, 2019

We had a great time in Nepal and amazing experience!! All the prep and communications were with Dev who is extremely knowledgeable, polite and has lot of patience to answer questions (and I trust me I had a lot of them!). We trekked the Everest Base Camp with Mr. Ram as a guide (Dev’s partner). He was very experienced, knew everyone along the way, he could probably do the trek with his eyes closed and we felt safe and welcome in the places we stayed on this trek. When I got sick, both him and our porter (Sushan) took good care of me.

In addition, after the trek, we visited both Dev’s and Mr. Ram’s families, had homemade Nepalis traditional food – it was delicious! Both kept in touch after the trek till this day.
If you want a no hassle, enjoyable, safe, and hospitable experience you cannot go past Dev and his team!! They are the best; I would highly recommend exploring Nepal and trekking with them. They can find a trek suitable for your needs. Amazing! Thanks for everything, Guys!!

Himalayan adventure trek

30th October, 2018

I want to thank Ram of mountain eco tours for the extra care above and beyond that expected. Our backpacks for the everest base camp were delayed several days and we were 3 days into the trek before they arrived in kathmandu. Ram spent significant time coordinating their delivery to us while on the trek by utilizing porters to get our gear to us. In addition having a local guide with contacts enabled us to exit lukla by helicopter when many other travellers were stranded awaiting the cloud to clear. Some had been waiting several days and had missed their international flights but we were extracted the same day as our scheduled flight at minimal expense. Ram pays close attention to all trekkers and constantly monitors their health and well being. Both Ram and his porters are welcoming and they feel part of our extended trekking family. I have no hesitation in recomnending them to anyone who would like a safe, authentic Nepalese experience.

Professional, fun, amazing

20th December, 2022

Ram and Neil led our group of 6 to Everest Base Camp and back safely and we had the time of our lives! Their knowledge of the area and ability to change plans as we needed made our trip smooth, fascinating and down right one of the best treks we have ever done. The guys were fun and joined in the laughs and were able to fix any issues swiftly along the way, including our lost luggage and cancelled flights!
I couldn't recommend this company more highly. You will be in good hands, I will be back for sure!

Great Trek to EBC and Kathmandu Tour!!!

10th May, 2017

My wife and I had the pleasure to have Ram guide us up the mountain last summer. We did a 12 day trek. We really didn't have to do much besides hike. Ram arranged the flights, got us to and from the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, arranged all of the overnight stays, all meals, and had a porter to carry our duffel bags. He made the whole experience as easy as possible for us. We met other couples trekking without guides and they were all exhausted and most of them had bats of food poisoning. Each meal we had Ram would tell us what is safe to eat and what would make us sick so we never had to worry about it. He also introduced us to delicious ra-ra noodles and buffalo momos! He also showed us around Kathmandu for a couple days. I am sure we would not have had nearly as good of a trip if it was not for Ram. Hopefully we can get back to Nepal in the next few years so we can have Ram guide us to Annapurna Base Camp!

Everest Base Camp Trek

18th April, 2018

We Took the EBC trek with Ram in June and it was amazing. He was very helpful and responsive when you are planing your trip and everyone knows that the guide on a trip like this can make or break your trek. For our trek we had a guide named Ram and he was amazing. We went during monsoon season so flights were hard to come by but Ram made sure that we got there by dealing with the airlines and the helicopter companies. He monitored us the whole way to make sure the altitude wasn't to much for us and any problem we had he fixed right away. We observed many different guides along the was and we wouldn't trade ram for anything. The views were amazing and Ram could answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Mountain Eco Treks and Expedition for all treks in Nepal and if you do use them ask for RAM!

in the last few decades where most of the rural villages do have proper communication wither by cell- phone (mobile our guides will be in touch with the head office through their cell phone. Sometimes Cell-Phone does work and don'ts as Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country with a deep gorge and valley, where cell phone works on high hills, and might not when in a deep gorge hidden by hills and mountains. The chances of a working cell phone are most positive you can try using a local popular SiM card.

There are most of the guesthouses on the Gokyo Lake Everest Base Camp trek, which provide Wi-fi facilities at a small cost. However, don’t forget the cellular network in the mountain is poor, and it doesn’t work very properly it keeps disconnecting every minute.

The route to Everest Base Camp is usually very crowded during the high season (spring and autumn) September to Nov and March to May. Due to the extreme climate and temperature, the number of visitors is less during winter and monsoon. But there will be no problem for tourists to eat and stay even though it is very crowded.

You should bring all the trekking equipment you need yourself. Trekkers can bring equipment from their hometown, but their costs can be high, so buying them from local shops in Thamel Kathmandu is the right decision. There are some shops that also rent essential hiking gear for a small price. We will provide you with a duffel bag.

Great Experience

28th October, 2019

We had a great time in Nepal and amazing experience!! All the prep and communications were with Dev who is extremely knowledgeable, polite and has lot of patience to answer questions (and I trust me I had a lot of them!). We trekked the Everest Base Camp with Mr. Ram as a guide (Dev’s partner). He was very experienced, knew everyone along the way, he could probably do the trek with his eyes closed and we felt safe and welcome in the places we stayed on this trek. When I got sick, both him and our porter (Sushan) took good care of me.

In addition, after the trek, we visited both Dev’s and Mr. Ram’s families, had homemade Nepalis traditional food – it was delicious! Both kept in touch after the trek till this day.
If you want a no hassle, enjoyable, safe, and hospitable experience you cannot go past Dev and his team!! They are the best; I would highly recommend exploring Nepal and trekking with them. They can find a trek suitable for your needs. Amazing! Thanks for everything, Guys!!

Himalayan adventure trek

30th October, 2018

I want to thank Ram of mountain eco tours for the extra care above and beyond that expected. Our backpacks for the everest base camp were delayed several days and we were 3 days into the trek before they arrived in kathmandu. Ram spent significant time coordinating their delivery to us while on the trek by utilizing porters to get our gear to us. In addition having a local guide with contacts enabled us to exit lukla by helicopter when many other travellers were stranded awaiting the cloud to clear. Some had been waiting several days and had missed their international flights but we were extracted the same day as our scheduled flight at minimal expense. Ram pays close attention to all trekkers and constantly monitors their health and well being. Both Ram and his porters are welcoming and they feel part of our extended trekking family. I have no hesitation in recomnending them to anyone who would like a safe, authentic Nepalese experience.

Professional, fun, amazing

20th December, 2022

Ram and Neil led our group of 6 to Everest Base Camp and back safely and we had the time of our lives! Their knowledge of the area and ability to change plans as we needed made our trip smooth, fascinating and down right one of the best treks we have ever done. The guys were fun and joined in the laughs and were able to fix any issues swiftly along the way, including our lost luggage and cancelled flights!
I couldn't recommend this company more highly. You will be in good hands, I will be back for sure!

Great Trek to EBC and Kathmandu Tour!!!

10th May, 2017

My wife and I had the pleasure to have Ram guide us up the mountain last summer. We did a 12 day trek. We really didn't have to do much besides hike. Ram arranged the flights, got us to and from the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, arranged all of the overnight stays, all meals, and had a porter to carry our duffel bags. He made the whole experience as easy as possible for us. We met other couples trekking without guides and they were all exhausted and most of them had bats of food poisoning. Each meal we had Ram would tell us what is safe to eat and what would make us sick so we never had to worry about it. He also introduced us to delicious ra-ra noodles and buffalo momos! He also showed us around Kathmandu for a couple days. I am sure we would not have had nearly as good of a trip if it was not for Ram. Hopefully we can get back to Nepal in the next few years so we can have Ram guide us to Annapurna Base Camp!

Everest Base Camp Trek

18th April, 2018

We Took the EBC trek with Ram in June and it was amazing. He was very helpful and responsive when you are planing your trip and everyone knows that the guide on a trip like this can make or break your trek. For our trek we had a guide named Ram and he was amazing. We went during monsoon season so flights were hard to come by but Ram made sure that we got there by dealing with the airlines and the helicopter companies. He monitored us the whole way to make sure the altitude wasn't to much for us and any problem we had he fixed right away. We observed many different guides along the was and we wouldn't trade ram for anything. The views were amazing and Ram could answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Mountain Eco Treks and Expedition for all treks in Nepal and if you do use them ask for RAM!
