Overview

The Himalayas – the youngest mountain range on Earth is home to many of the world’s uppermost peaks, including the highest one, Mount Everest. These majestic mountains are awe-inspiring; the sheer beauty of their snow-capped peaks, fringed by huge glaciers, simply breathtaking. From the 1950s onwards, intrepid men and women have been fascinated by Mt. Everest, thanks to the fearlessness of people like Sir Edmund Hillary and his Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Nargay, the first ones to reach the summit. Since then, many have followed with similar attempts, often losing their lives in the process. But did you know that today it has become possible to glimpse the world’s highest peak? During the past few years, around 37000 people have trekked in the region of Mt. Everest every year, often successfully reaching Everest Base Camp Trek, from where mountaineers would start their grueling climb.

Here at Nepal Intrepid Treks, we value and respect these mountains with a passion since the day we were born. We were able to turn our love for nature’s wonders into our life’s work: Taking you on a journey through these magnificent mountains, all the way up to Everest Base Camp Trek! The trek itself starts at Lukla (at 2850 m), so we will get the adrenaline going by taking you on one of the most exhilarating short plane rides (from Kathmandu to Lukla) you will ever have in your life. This 30 min. flight introduces a top-down, magnificent view of the vast Himalayas in the Khumbu region you will be trekking in.

During your trek you will be passing many other stunning peaks, crossing rivers over hanging bridges, passing through villages where indigenous people live and work, watching amazing sunrises and sunsets, visiting monasteries, learning about the Nepalese culture, flora and fauna, and relaxing in one of the teahouses after a day’s walk.

This spectacular 16-day itinerary starts and ends at the airport, and it is our pleasure to make this journey an unforgettable one for you. We work with the best and most knowledgeable, licensed trekking guides and they will look out for your safety and comfort. The guides are trained for all sorts of situations and have vast experience with the acclimatization process you will experience. They will build in days of acclimatization, make a decision accordingly and take care of your physical and mental needs.

During the day’s walk, you will have regular breaks for a mint tea, hot chocolate or anything else you choose. Since the trek is on a moderate level, people of all ages, from children to pensioners, are able to do Everest Base Camp Trek. At Nepal Intrepid Treks our guides will take care of you, our porters will take care of your belongings and our team on the ground will be on stand-by when necessary. All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other, enjoy the views and come away with an experience you will never forget!

Nepal Poon hill trek and city tour

For anyone considering doing a Nepal tour, we highly recommend Binoy Rai, the owner of Mystic Himalaya Trekking and Expedition. We were really impressed by the efficiency, courtesy and the caring attitude demonstrated by Binoy in handling all our questions in such an easy manner. We highly recommend them for any future travelling prospects.

EBC 2018 – Amazing

I completed the Everest Base Camp trek with my wife and two great friends in October 2018. The trip was amazing with some of the best scenery on the planet. The Nepalese people are wonderful and so welcoming to visitors. Our trip and itinerary was perfectly put together by Binoy and the team at Mystic Himalaya and the trek superbly guided by Chogyal. This was my second EBC trek organized by Binoy and we’re already planning our return in 2020 to explore the Annapurna region. I highly recommend Mystic Himalaya Trekking and look forward to my next trek with them.

Amazeballs

After my husband's 12 years of incessant nagging, I finally agreed to trek to Everest Base Camp. Having kept in contact with Binoy from his last trek 16 years ago, we had the privilege of trekking with Mystic Himalaya. The professionalism and care shown by the Mystic team was outstanding. From the moment we were picked up from the airport, to the moment we were dropped back, we were completely taken care of. Everything was so well organised, and our trekking crew, Chogyal, Pemba, Buddhi and Sujan were fantastic, every step of the way. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful trip to Nepal

We recently went on a trek and tour with Mystic Himalaya Trekking. It was one of the most adventurous and fun trips we have ever been on. One of the owners and our trekking guide named Binoy was the absolute best. I can’t even begin to say how informative he was about the area and how he attended to our every need. He has his own personal crew that hauled our bags and they cooked all our meals. They were so delicious. I would recommend anyone considering going on a trek to Nepal to check them out. I can’t imagine anyone else could be better than they were. Thanks for a memorable and amazing trip.

Absolutely the best Nepal Guides

My son and I had the privilege of trekking with Pranoy and Pemba in the Mustang district, and it was an amazing experience. What sets the Mystic Himalaya experience above other treks is the depth of cultural knowledge and history that the guides have to offer. In addition to breathtaking scenery, we got a fascinating look at the history, architecture, and culture of that region, presented by a guide who is articulate and very well-educated in his field. And let's talk about logistics. We managed to hit the tail end of the monsoon season and got a LOT of rain. With limited time (only one week), our Plan A was to fly to Jomsom and start trekking there. Since planes weren't flying (and didn't for 3 more days), Pranoy got us a driver. We drove for a day and were halted by a massive landslide. Pranoy came up with a new itinerary, and we got some spectacular hiking on our way to Jomsom. With each new "obstacle," Pranoy came up with a new plan and we had a superb trek. We were joking that we went through Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc. and were on Plan E by the end. Every bit of it was gorgeous and a lot of fun! With all of those changes, we felt safe and extremely well cared-for. Food was excellent -- supervised and sometimes prepared by Pemba. Accommodations were very comfortable and exceeded expectations. Best of all, Pranoy stayed in constant communication with locals and other guides to ensure our safety every step of the way. With this team, you are working with real professionals that have guided for National Geographic. I wouldn't trek with anyone else -- they are the best!
