Everest Base Camp Trek is undoubtedly the best Himalayan trekking in Nepal. This high altitude trekking takes you to the base camp of Mt. Everest (8,848m), the highest mountain in the world. This journey starts with a flight to Lukla and includes trekking through the dense forest and high altitude villages towards the Base Camp of Everest.
Trekkers will love each and every moment of trekking in the proximity of the Everest and other mountains in the region. To add to that is the unique Sherpa people and their culture.

Unbelievable..!! extremely brilliant tour. One must try while visit in Nepal. I was on my business trip, I and my husband decided to have an extraordinary trip but initially, we don\'t have any idea where to go. As we were looking for a travel companion, we got a Master Himalaya. Then they suggest for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. Everything was perfectly organized from pick to drop. The view from the flight was breathtaking and the pilot was so supportive. I\'d like to thank the entire team of Master Himalaya for their support. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone willing to go Everest without Trek.
I highly recommend this tour agency. They arranged most of our trip to the Everest base camp. The flight tickets, the entrances fee and an amazing guide/porter (Jeevan was a really good guide, he knew everything, was always taking good care of us, taking us to really good lodges). They were always aware of where we were and helping us with everything. Always really flexible and open to our needs. They borrow us a big bag to take our things to the trekking and crampons. Also, we bought him bus ticket to Pokhara for a good price. Thank you for the amazing experience that we had in Nepal and for the t-shirt that will be a good memory to carry back home !!!!
I was planning this trip in my head a year ago and was able to make my dream a reality with the help of Master Himalaya! From the friendliness to the experience of this outfitter, together we made a plan and finished it through. The staff at Master Himalaya was professional, trustworthy and caring. They wanted us to have the best experience possible. Though the trek was tough, we shared many laughs. The mountains were more pictuesque than I can ever describe. What a great adventure! Thanks to my friends who came along and again the team at Master Himalaya. Chris Hart
Wonderful company! I strongly recommend Master Himalaya, they went beyond our expectations with every detail. Everything was perfectly coordinated: airport pickup, stay at a 5-star hotel as we asked (we stayed at Yak and Yeti), day tour of Kathmandu and the most important: trek to EBC with chopper return. The trek was extraordinary. Our guide Suman was the best, super experienced and helpful, which made us enjoy the adventure without any delays (or AMS!). We stayed at very good guesthouses with good food and warm rooms. He showed us the scenery and guided us (patiently) through the mountains in Himalaya. Then they arranged for us a complimentary couples massage which was extraordinary! A one in a lifetime experience, perfectly orchestrated by Master Himalaya.
The Himalayas, have always been a fascinating destination and Nepal, the kingdom of mountains have been attracting adventure seekers since ages. I personally am a big admirer myself of these snow-clad peaks and whenever I get a chance I visit my first choice is mountains. Nepal has always been a land of fascination for me, a place where one can be so close to Lord Shiva; The Pashupati Nath Temple in Kathmandu is one of the biggest pilgrimage center for Shaivites and also Nepal is one of the two gateways to Kailash and Manasarovar pilgrimage. Its always an adventure going in to deep areas and heights on Himalayas. Though I love taking risks but its always advisable to take help of the locals while visiting Nepal Himalayas. Last time when I was in Nepal to go closer to Mt Everest, I took the Everest Base Camp trek. So as advised by my friends and others who have been to this trek earlier, I decided to visit the offices of Master Himalaya Treks and Expeditions Pvt Ltd. in Kathmandu. I was very happy and satisfied when I met the people at Master Himalaya – they seemed like thorough professionals. Master Himalaya is well known for organising and handling treks and trips in the most professional and dedicated way. It is a well established company in tourism industry of Nepal and is owned by experienced personals of Nepal tourism. The have an clear idea of the do’s and don’ts in the mountains. They are a team of professional trekking guides, tour guides, mountain leaders who provide the best services. They are registered and licensed as per govt. of Nepal and are registered as member of TAAN, PATA, and NATA etc. They deal in various services like Trekking, Hiking’s, Peak climbing’s, Cultural tours, River rafting, jungle safari, domestic and international ticketing, hotel reservation, visa services and many more for the destination Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. Master Himalaya takes care of all the arrangements needed to have a wonderful experience and take back memories that will last for the lifelong. And finally when I took the trek package and reached the base camp, it was more than satisfaction and happiness. I felt like as if I have already climbed the Everest. The guides and porters were extremely helpful and experienced. Personally I would rate Master Himalaya as one of the best companies in Nepal, and feel that for a person visiting Nepal, Master Himalaya is a must.
It\'s an amazing experience with Master Himalaya
