Trekking the adorable Himalayas is always a must on the “to do” list of an avid trekker. After trekking over the Sahyadris and taking a few treks in Karnataka I decided to place my foot on the Himalayan Mountain Ranges. Going through the various options from Chadar, Sandakphu, Roopkund, Hampta Pass, etc. I finally narrowed down to the Everest Base Camp. The very thought of following the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay thrilled me to the core. The sight of having a close encounter with the highest point on earth just pushed further my excitement levels. After a series of e-searches and consulting with other fellow trekkers, I finally made up my mind to enroll for the 14 day EBC Trek with Thrillophilia. The EBC Trek was by far my best trek so far. Though the thin air made the ascent difficult and more challenging, I am glad that I was able to complete the trek. The amazing view of snow clad mountains, the vast greenery and above all the company of similar fun-loving folks made the trek a memorable one. Kudos to the team at Thrillophilia. The trek was not only organized well but the pricing was also reasonable. All the questions, concerns, doubts and apprehensions I that had were properly attended by the travel consultant at Thrillophilia, Miss Madhuri Mathur despite some of them being repetitive. The representatives Mr. Subid Sahoo and Mr. Nitish Singh as well as the trek Guide Mr. Bijay along with his assistants were all friendly and helpful. I will definitely suggest my pals to go for this trek. I wish to do it again sometime soon. Cheers, Vignesh

Having trekked in the Sahayadris for over 4-5 years now and after doing two himalayan treks in the previous season, I wanted to do a more challenging trek. So finally I decided to climb the base camp of the highest mountain in the world. The majestic mountain range had been in my bucket list for many years. Now seemed to be the right time, and so I set off in search of the "Everest". I always thought how difficult could it be to climb mountains, after all, it just takes putting one step ahead of the other. I was wrong, it indeed turned out to be more difficult than I imagined. This is due to the rarefied air in the atmosphere, that makes breathing difficult. Even a nominal gradient while ascending seems to be a task. But thankfully I wasn't hit by any symptoms of AMS ( Acute Mountain Sickness ) which makes the mountaineer's job tremendously difficult at high altitudes. On the trek, it was the promise of some awesome photos, that helped me carry through many steep climbs. But, the sheer beauty of the barren mountains with clear blue sky in the backdrop and the ferocious Dudh Koshi River inspired me not to give up but to keep climbing. During the climb of Kala Patthar, I learnt the importance of balance and concentration, even when you are exhausted beyond limit. On the Kala Patthar summit day, I set out at 4 in the morning, climbing through the mountain with a 50-70 degree gradient; sub zero temperatures, chilly winds and freezing weather. It was total dark and the only thing I could see through my head torch was the next step. From this moment till 6 am in the morning, I only thought about the awesome feeling of summiting and achieving my goal. As the air was thin, I concentrated on breathing properly and adequately and took synchronized baby steps. And, finally at 6:30 am I reached the Summit (5643m)! The view of the sunrise on Everest was just spectacular and the feeling of having summited, exhilarating!! The Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar expedition made me realize that to achieve a goal, it is important to believe in your own efforts and strength (Both Physical and Mental).But more than that, we should be grateful towards the ecosystem around and factors beyond our control which play an equally important role in our journey to achieve anything.

Are you planning to head for a trek to the Everest Base camp? Well hear my story of my experience to this wonderful heaven on Earth, I am basically from Rajasthan, and am a great lover of trek, I never leave any trekking place in the World untouched, there are many I have taken up and there are still vast to explore, as I was trekking to each and every place that I had shortlisted from my bucket list, the Everest base camp took its turn last month, I was very eagerly waiting for this trek ever since I had heard from the Indian friends about a trekking destination like this in Nepal. The Everest memory is going to be in memories forever; base camp at the world’s highest mountain is not everyone’s cup of tea. It needs endurance, agility, talent and stability to survive the whole way through, which is what I have learnt from the trek. When the temperature in Rajasthan was touching around 40 degree, I decided to trek to the Everest to take a break from the climate and the city. I read about the reviews before hand and planned everything, initially I thought of going alone, but at the last moment some old school friends of mine joined up, so it was a team of ten heading to the highest peak of the world. Our journey began at Rajasthan, and within few hours we reached Kathmandu, from where we were supposed to be picked up by our guides, we moved on from here to a nearby hotel, as we wanted to fresh up and make ourselves active before the actual trek began, so our first day was a complete rest at the hotel, the next day we went down to explore the Kathmandu valleys and monkey temple, and then by evening we were boarded flight to Lukla, and here finally our trekking activity started, caught a glimpse of this statue on way – Late Pasang Lhamu Sherpa ( the first Nepali women to reach the world top), and then from here we reached to Phakding, here we halted for some time, took a short nap for a couple of hours, and on our guides call we started to trek towards gateway of Everest, Namche Bazaar. Uphill and downhill trek over here was simply amazing, then we had to stop at Jorsale for some legal paper work, which was taken care of well by our guide, crossing the alpine vegetation and suspension bridge we landed at Namche Bazaar, after halting here overnight we started our acclimatizing walk towards the Everest view hotel from where we caught view of various peaks, Kusum Kangaroo, Thamsekru, Amadablam and the gigantic Mt. Everest. Then we trekked to Tengboche, Dingboche, Nagarjuna hill and then towards Lobuche. From Lobuche the final lap of trek to Everest base camp began, after trekking for around three hours I finally made it up to the Everest Base camp. That feel being on top of this Everest was like being on top of the world. Yay! I was waiting for this moment since then to share it with my friends, relatives and other trekking enthusiasts.

Everest Base Camp- The five Star Trek to test your endurance, seven days to climb up from Lukla 2650M to 5365 M and climb down in Only three days; the bragging rights are not free! Mission Accomplished 5364 M Everest Base Camp started preparation with my son Dhaval Kedarkantha 3800 M in 2014, VoF n Hemkund Saheb 4329 M, Rupin Pass 15800ft in 2017! Thanks toDhaval all my team mates guide in preparing me for this Bucket list aspirations! Some days were too long trek for winter like from 0600am Kala Pathare to 600pm, partly in dark, but trail is so enchanting especially from Gorakshep to Pheriche in the Valley by setting sun turning AMA Dablam Golden was unforgettable! Only trek in world to offer you bed and mattress in tea house even at +5000M. You can order any cuisines for meal and also take hot shower, such is magic of economics where thousands of trekkers join trek every day but sadly very few from India. We met hundred who were on other side of 50, also dozen of European American families having 10, 12 years old children carrying their own backpack, truely amazing. We were group of six between 25-56 years old, myself senior most but each of us completely trek to and fro successfully!

Only some times in life, people will tend to realize, there is much more in life than just money, regular office work and family. After associating with Thrillophilia, I felt there are many things which are actually larger than life. Trekking the adorable Himalayas is one such thing. After gaining some experience in the western ghats when I decided to step up, I have found this one-stop solution, 'THRILLOPHILIA'. It addressed my desire to walk on ice.. around lush green vegetation.. through the hilly terrain.. see the majestic beauty of Himalayan range.. experience the electric flow of Ganges. With Valley of flowers being the first tick mark, I decided Mighty Everest as the second choice. The footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay started ringing in my ears and gave me enough excitement and courage to begin the trek. The sight of having a close encounter with the peak point on the land just pushed further my excitement levels. a group of 11 people whom i met during the day 1 were the best ever in the entire 31 treks i had so far. The time we spent together in Namche, Ranechapp from where we took the flight due to congestion at Kathmandu, Dibouche where we had a super star gazing, dingboche and every place where we spent time together was truly magical. Never ever i felt it was a painful trek even though i couldn't complete the trek due to personal reasons and came back mid-way, it was truly magnificent though the thin air made the ascent difficult and more challenging. The amazing view of snow clad mountains, the vast greenery made the trek a memorable one. Words like well organized will not be sufficient but the pricing, guiding, care taken by the team was way better than previous treks. Guide Tenzing, and his assistants Bahadur and Padam are truly patient and enlighten us with the rituals, way of living there in Sagarmatha National Park Region, food, festivals, specials and every information we ought to konw. The representatives Mr. Subid Sahoo and Mr. Nitish Singh as well were helpful.

At the end of your lifetime, when you sit back and recollect your old memories, it is not the tour that you will remember, but it will be the ones that made your trip memorable. And without any doubt I can say that my memory in future is going to be filled only with this Everest Base camp trek that I had taken up last week. A trek will become memorable only when it is filled with adventure, challenge and fun in it, and all this is coupled in the Everest base camp trek. When I had suggested this trek to my family, they immediately said a big “NO” as this was the most challenging one and I had picked the winter months for trekking, but then I gathered guts to convince my parents and started to go ahead with my itinerary which I had already done many months before the trek was decided. Actually the trek is not as scary and rough as others presume it to be, if you are packed with necessary stuffs and if you have some skill and knowledge about this trek you are sure to go through it easily. Trekking to the base camp is actually a great fun to experience for real. I want this review to be useful to the readers, thus I am writing more of tips rather than my experience so that it would be useful for the other trekkers who are planning to go ahead with this trek. If you are planning to trek to this base camp, I feel it is always wise to carry some USD and Rupees as you hardly find any ATM’s over here, it is also great if you are able to arrange some Nepali currencies too in case you want to shop or buy something to eat. If you haven’t packed enough winter gear or trekking gear, buy them at Kathmandu itself and save some bucks, and as you climb the altitude will lower down your oxygen level, so carry plenty of chocolates and some treats for your mouth. When your energy level goes down, just munch in few chocolates and gets instant energy. And you can also carry some tea bags with you; hot water is available at many places, so you can just stop by to sip your tea instead of searching for a local tea stall. Well all this being said, my trek to Everest base camp was more than I wanted it to be, fun thrill, excitement, adventure, mystery and above all I made friendship with so many trekkers that in future I will not have to go alone to any place, this trekking friends group will be ready to hang out with me.

Dreams take time, patience and sustained effort if they are ever to be anything more than dreams. The EBC trek is, without doubt, a very challenging one, and it takes courage, grit, will and motivation to keep at it until the end. However, having a trusted partner like Thrillophillia help you motor along the way makes the journey safer! Here is my story on how I added the EBC feather to my cap: https://whisperashout.wordpress.com/2018/05/03/everest-base-camp-march-2018/ Sit back, relax and read at leisure, 'coz this is meant to be detailed.

Trekking to EBC is every adventurer’s dream. The very thought of standing at the Base Camp of the world's highest mountain itself is so exciting. When you are trekking to the Base Camp of Everest, it is challenging, it is tough, it is scary, it is daunting and it is exhausting. But then, when you look up to witness the stunning landscape around you, you get to know that whilst it is all of the above, more than anything, it is rewarding and completely worth it. One has to definitely go out in the mountains. They will make you modest. They will make you humble. They will make you feel that the world is a much bigger place than where you live. Looking at them you will realize such a tiny place you occupy in this world. Thrillophilia made this dream come true. Their flawless logistics and well informed support staff, both on and off the field played a crucial role in making this a huge success.

Everest Base Camp Trekking In Nepal is one of the best camp trekking that I have ever taken. Everest has been in my wish list of places to trek for so long. When it did finally happen, I was getting sceptical. However, thanks to the organizers for making this whole process a smooth one for me. I am so glad and happy to have actually taken this trek. Also, visiting Nepal was a splendid experience. Viewing Everest from Nepal is the best part of this trip. I just wish I can do this again soon.

Need to Visit once in your lifetime! My everest base camp trek from Lukla to Mount Everest Base camp and then to Kalapattar at about 5546 metres. The trek was Awesome. It was spanning for about 13 days. It was one of the most memorable journeys I've ever done in my life. Me and my groups had such a wonderful moment traveling to the Mount Everest base camp. If anyone ever wants to visit this place, doing so is the only way to know the beauty of nature. It's undoubtedly the best. Planning to go there again. Good manage by Thrillophilia!
