Everest Base Camp Trek is a great introductory trek for those travelers who wish to reach the base camp of Mount Everest in a short period of time. The trek holds a variety of routes, which can be tailored to suit your schedule. Your adventure can last anywhere from a week up to a month. The trekker traverses deep canyons and tall ridges ascending a total of 8,848m (the height of Everest itself). Trekkers that are physically fit, in good health, and have trekking experiences can make this 14 days Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek. But, if you are a novice trekker who is in good health and average physical fitness, Everest Base Camp Trek – 16 Days might be right for you. For experienced trekkers who wish to take up more challenge and “stay off the beaten path, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes – 18 Days would be an ideal choice.  If you allow the time to ascend at your own pace this trek is open to the moderately fit. It is also possible to trek in winter but be prepared for the cold.

Everest Base camp is a must do for any trekker who wants to feel the magnum experience of Mt everest. 16 days is a complete package for Kathmandu sightseeing and trekking in the mountains. The flight from Kathmandu -Lukla – Kathmandu was another adventure added to the list. Completely thrilling experience. We just loved this trip. On top of that Sisne provided this package in the most affordable price as compared to other agencies. I recommend everyone to go for Sisne Rover Trekking for any trekking activities for you in Nepal. They are the expert and they are very professional and make you feel comfortable in every way possible.

Excellent trek to Everest Base Camp for 16 days. Even though the company’s head office is in Pokhara, the price it offered us was much better than any other trekking companies so, we opted for Sisne Rover Trekking. We are very much impressed with the efficient management provided by Sisne. Our trekking was excellently organized. At the end of the trek, we also received certificate of EBC trek completion. We are very much pleased with the service. We are already planning for Annapurna base camp next year. Thank you Dambar and the team. Best Company for trekking in Nepal.

Great agency!
The agency is really good. They answered all my emails on time, really quick responses, and were very helpful in guiding me with my doubts. Despite of the fact that the agency is based in Pokhara they have no problems in arranging tours in the whole country. Mr Dambar was rather available to change my itinerary according to my plan and I could choose among taking a full package or arranging my own food and accomodations by myself which was very nice. I would recommend this agency to anyone that is looking for a trekking tour in Nepal.
