Everest Base Camp Trekking one of the most popular trekking journey among trekkers. Starting at the upper Phakding, this mountain trek follows the Dudh Kosi River then leads to Namche, a busy bazaar that is a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. Along this journey, we are greeted by the magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. The best time for Everest Base Camp trekking is during early autumn and late springs when the flowers are blooming all over. After trekking through a high crossing path we will have an enchanting view of Everest and then a 2-hours walk will take us towards the Tangboche Monastery. The beautiful monastery is in the height of 3867m and is surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons.
During the Everest base camp trek, the best view can be seen from this place, from where it looks absolutely mesmerizing and stunning. The descend to Imja Khola takes us to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche and then finally takes us to the Khumbu Glacier. Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the Ama Dablam and other peaks, comes after we follow the Khumbu glacier. Then the ascend to Kala pattar[5554m] from where the beautiful scenery of the Himalayas can seen makes you realize that every step that you took was absolutely worth it. Not only that, we can also see the picturesque southwest face of the colossal Mt. Everest. After reaching the Everest base camp at the end of the Khumbu icefall, we make our way back to Lukla.

I spent very memorable days in the Everest region in Nepal. I used to dream to see this highest peak of the world and now I arrested it in my camera. My guide arranged everything and helped me a lot. He did not let me feel tired and boring. I have read about the Manaslu region and willing to go there with this company again. I like to make a strong recommendation.
I recently completed the Everest Base Camp trek with Gokuls team, Naba and Kaji. It was fantastic. I trusted them to organise and sort every detail of the trip, which I booked at quite short notice. They managed every curve ball (eg flights cancelled) and were very well connected along the way. I travelled by myself but at no point felt awkward about that. What a fantastic trip - and highly recommend the company to facilitate a similar experience for others.
What a great experience. Outshine organized the best possible trip for a great price. Gokul the owner was fast and very effective. He organized our trip from start to finish. He was flexible and organized. Naba our guide and Kazi our poter were awesome. They made our trip. Outshine is a great Nepali company. We are coming back to climb Island Peak with them.
Hi Guys! This is company is super highly recommended, i have booked my adventure with them 3 times within 3 years for a reason. Gokul is easy to communicate and hes reply is very prompt. Hell arrange for you with what ever u need as soon as u arrive at the airport until u go back to the airport to fly back. Price is very reasonable. and for me what matters most is the its more than just business, theres soul in it.
My friend left his phone in the car on the way back to the airport, while we left the Nepal, Gokul manage to save the phone and take the effort to post it back to us.
