Explore the Higher Himalayas and Sherpa culture in the Khumbu region
The Everest Base Camp Trekking is a popular and fantastic trip to the Himalayan land of Sherpa. It rewards the trekkers with spectacular Himalayan views, surprising landscape, Sherpa lifestyle, Buddhist culture and traditions along with Himalayan Flora and Fauna in the Sagarmatha National Park. The trip leads to the base of the highest peak in the world- Mt. Everest. This scenic trip is regarded as one of the best trekking in the world. The breathtaking views of Mt. Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhoste, Mera and other Peaks have added the charm in this trekking.
It is a well-loved Himalayan journey to the Everest base camp for its multiple dimensions. When the trek reaches to the Namche Bazaar, the splendid views of the Himalayan range becomes closer and crystal clear. The trip becomes more attractive after a hike to the Everest View Hotel and the local community. It brings the trekkers closer to the culture and lifestyles of ethnic Sherpa groups. It is a quite tough climb when the trail enters into higher elevation. Trekkers must have sufficient acclimatization to get rid of high altitude sickness. Himalayan fauna like Thar is seen on the opposite side of the trekking trail. It is more adventurous to walk over the glaciers. After reaching the Gorakshep, trekkers hike to the base camp, which is the final point of the trip. Kalapatthar, after an early morning hike, is a good viewpoint of sunrise over the Tibetan Himalayan range.
The Sagarmatha National Park spread up to the top of the world. It has sheltered several species of Himalayan flora and fauna. Himalayan Thars, musk deer and Nepal's national bird, the Impeyan Pheasants, Red-billed chough, Blood pheasant and Yellow-billed chough is the fauna found there. The vegetations are Pine, Hemlock, Fir, Juniper, Birch, Rhododendron and Shrubs. These various dimensions have contributed to making the Everest base camp trekking package outstanding.

est service, Kisan is an hppestest and re6liable manager, this is second time we are working together, best service. Guide Ram is also a very good person, without him we cannot finish whole trip, thanks again for Good vibe Adventure service. Hope next time we have chance to play together!
Kisan did a great job organizing our Everest Base Camp trek. He was very friendly and professional. Our guide on the trek was also helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend Good Vibe Adventure if you are looking to do some treks in Nepal.
Thank you so much Good Vibe Adventure, we really enjoyed our first trip to Nepal and our first trek in the incredible Himalaya! In the months prior to our arrival in Kathmandu, Keshab and Kisan were always prompt and helpful in their communications. Once in country, everything with our trip: airport pickup & transfers, city tour, in country flights, lodging, meals, guide (Sudip) and porter (Dawa) went smoothly. We are very happy we chose Good Vibe as our tour operator and would definitely use them again in the future. Thank you again Keshab and Kisan!
Words cannot describe how good this trip was ! We arrived in Kathmandu and luckily found good vibes, they were not only professional and courteous but did not pressure us into anything. The service from all was excellent, these guys are not only a good adventure/treking company but genuinely good people who aren't just after our business but are there to look after us. We even went out for dinner once the trip was over. One of the guys needed to be helicoptered out from gorek shep and good vibes took care of everything with the helicopter service and our travel insurer. Nothing but positive words to everyone from our guide, porter and to the guys in the office. Had a few days to kill after our trek and they helped with another trip to anupura. Highly recommend and honestly can say top company and even better people. Will not
I was going for EBC trek in December 14 month and I was going thru plethora of options on trekking companies and struggling to finalize. Then I was introduced to Keshab thru a friend. I was skeptical that how good he would be because he gave me best deal for 11night mountain + 2 night KTM trip in Nepal. And I thought he may cut some corners.. But What I found was he was extremely responsible, helpful and detailed oriented person. Gave me right kind of advice (For taking cloths, breathing, accessories, eating etc) before my EBC trek. I found he runs his organization also very efficiently and has a great customer focus. He infact lent me his personal big back pack as my backpack was not suitable to carry stuff in mountain. My 11night itinerary got curtailed (as I walked faster than I earlier thought) and he managed all thru very seamlessly (like lukla flight bookings etc). Best part is about service they offer.. Really Amazing...He also gave a very good guide cum porter (Mr Geljin) and he was extremely responsible and helpful as well.. Thanks a lot Good Vibe adventure and Mr. Keshab for this hospitality and awesome experience.. I wish I could give 6 stars :-) . I highly highly recommend other fellow travelers to try out with them
I did à treck in the Himalaya to the Everest base camp. The experience Washington the mots difficult thing i have done in my Life but surely the best in my Life. Keshab is a bit part of this Nice adventure.
We met Keshab on our Everest Base Camp treck in 2010. He was our guide for over two weeks. He looked after us well form the very first day and was always happy to assist us with anything. He was great in motivating us to walk and see more things. Keshab was always happy to reassure me when I was worried about the altitude sickness. After few days of trekking together my worries disappeared as I gained confidence in him as my guide. We have no hesitation recommending him as guide and we are sure you will have a good time exploring the mountains with his company. We will definitely be trekking with him again in the future!
