3 passes - Date of experience: April 2018

Great trek through the 3 passes at the mount Everest national park. Anuj the manager is a great guy and the guide (Sagar) knew his way around the park :)

Competitive prices and great service

Roman K - Calgary,Canada At 2019-02-14 01:27:00

We just completed a trek to EBC with White Hill Adventures. We visited 5 different agencies before running into Anuj from White Hill. He offered us a far better deal than any other place. At first we were skeptical as it seemed almost too cheap compared to what the others offered us. However, everything was exactly as promised, and Anuj was a great organizer and a very honest person. My bag didn't get delivered on the flight to Lukla because of some issues at the airport, and the weather was bad for the. Ext several days, so I was hiking with just. H day backpack. However, Anuj found a way to send my bag by a helicopter to Lucla, and then a porter delivered it to Namche, where we were spending an acclimatization day. I was very relieved to get it and very impressed with Anuj. The trek itself was good, we stayed at good places, and ordered whatever food we wanted, just as we were promised. The only downside was that our guide, Prokash, was somewhat annoying, excessively touchy, not very punctual, and also dishonest with us (we caught him lying to us on several occasions). So we would recommend to go with a different guide, but we would still highly recommend White Hill Adventures. We liked dealing with Anuj, and even booked another trip with him to Pokhara for some paragliding. He organized the car, hotel, and paragliding for us. We lost a memory card with all our videos from the trip, but Anuj was able to locate it in the car, and got it to us through a friend after we already left for India. All in all, we highly recommend White Hill Adventures. You'll get the best service at the best prices.

I didn't find an agency, I found a true friend

Simone At 2019-02-14 01:39:00

I was in Nepal for less than a month, I was wandering among tourist agencies, seeking a valuable mate for my first experience. I was a bit afraid of mountains, I did not know what to expect, and moreover I had a dog ... I wanted to "travel safely". I had already considered various agencies and I was wandering through the center of Thamel. "What a beautiful dog!" I heard. Thus began the relationship between me and Anuj, co-owner of the White Hill Adventure tourist agency. After a discussion, lasting about an hour, I realized that these guys had something more than the others. Their prices were unbeatable, their hearts overflow of joy and there was a sign on the door with an inscription that immediately caught my attention: "Honesty is success." Fair enough. I had the pleasure of doing already 3 Trekking in comfort thanks to the services of this agency. I went on Annapurna Circuit 2 times, passing the Thorong La Pass, at 5416 meters. The first time I was alone, with Dike, Nara was our fantastic guide. The second time I went with a group of friends who came specially from Italy and our fantastic guide was the great Buz! My sister and I had the honor to observe the highest mountain on the earth Reaching Everest Base Camp at 5200 meters. In the morning Martina had a bit of headaches and therefore she does not wanted to come to the viewpoint Kala Patar, 5550 meters. I remember that I was sick too (we had both taken a bit of influence) and I really suffered to reach the top. It was worth it absolutely, I felt in my bones the proximity to the Earth's Kundalini Energy headquarters (as locals explain, parallel to the tectonic theory, the exceptional height of the mountain). With Anuj and Nabaraj we have not only entertained a client / agency relationship. The hearts of these people has led me to be their friend, to be hosted in their villages where I could lived with their families. With all my might I tried to help Anuj, giving him money to build a proper home for his parents. (I could understand the daily conditions). I attended to the ceremony of the "feeding rice" of Anuj’s daughter, a kind of hindu "baptism". I became part of the family. Recommending the services of this agency now sounds quite strange; I'm sure of one thing: Anuj and his White Hill Adventures are always perfect guides, available for whatever you need and able to make you enjoy this beautiful country. Thanks for your friendship. I will always owe you something from my heart. Simone

Excellent !! Date of experience: December 2016

Jessica P At 2019-02-14 01:52:00

We did the Ebc tour ( everest base camp and kalapattar) at first we was a bit unsure of what to expect because we were meeting our guide in lukla instead of khatmandu. But I can honestly say that it was the best experience. The guide we had was D.B. he was really knowledgeable about everything we asked and was curious about, he allways joked with us and tried his best to make our experience special, great man and so happy we were lucky to do this trip of a life time with him. Excellent company, great service, can't complaine about anything. Thankyou!!!
