I recently completed a Trek to Everest Base Camp that I booked with Asian Journey Treks & Expedition. This turned out to be the best adventure of my life.
In my opinion Asian Journey is the best company to book any type of trip that you may be considering to take in Nepal. From the time of arrival to departure, the agency owner Surya Shrestha personally ensured that all of our needs and wishes were addressed as quickly as possible.
We enjoyed a tour of Kathmandu during our first day in Nepal with a very knowledgable tour guide who showed us several of the city attractions. He took his time and answered all of our questions about the Nepal culture and included how the people live in harmony with varied religious beliefs.
The flight to Lukla must be experienced by all. There are great first looks at the Himalayas. The trekking begins after a nice breakfast in a guesthouse in Lukla. Don’t forget to keep your camera available for a quick pic all of the time. You never know when an unusual or just beautifully scenic photo op will avail itself.
The trek itself is not a walk in the park. There are many ups and downs along the trail. Anyone can do it, but prepare yourself for more than a trip around the block.
Our guide, Binod, and our Porter, Raj, were great. They were both very personable and a real joy to take the trip with. They were knowledgable of the details of the mountains as well as many of the plants that we encountered along the way. We also got to enjoy nightly card games with them as well as others who wished to join in.
The trek itself is breathtakingly beautiful and memorable. There are many tea houses to enjoy along the route to Base Camp. It is also a must to go to the top of Kala Pathar. We enjoyed an early morning hike and arrived at the top just as the the morning sun was beginning to shine on the Himalayas.
Asian Journey also worked well with us, when we chose to adjust our itinerary. They are flexible and committed to ensuring that the client is happy in all aspects of their trip.
Bottom line is that this trip was the BEST EVER!!!

Excellent trek to Everest Basecamp. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and our porter was amazing. We became a family on the trip. This company was amazing, from picking us up at the airport, providing a tour of Katmandu, and handling all the logistics of the trip.
In talking with other Trekkers along the way I am convinced we had one of the outstanding and professional Guide services in Nepal.
I am planning to go back next fall to explore the northern mountains and will definitely going with Aisan Journeys!

Hi level service for many years
I visited Nepal many times and I love this country very much. I love it for spirit, peace and nature. First I’ve been there on Tibet tour and it was organized by “Asian Journey the treks” company.
Nothing to say that I was impressed by Nepal at once. That’s true. Almost every tour in Nepal begins from Kasmandu – the gem of the valley, the heart of the country. There are a lot of cultural, historical and religious famous and spiritual places to see there. You can touch and feel the atmosphere of East just at the entrance of your hotel in Thamel. Smiling people, fairs, bright colors, SPA (if you tired) and much more surrounds you in Kathmandu.
For me, Kathmandu, like a good starting point in the world, where I full of energy.
Thank you, Surya, that your company helps me to open my favorite country even more every time!

Asian Journey Pvt. Ltd. helped me to arrange 12 days Everest Panorama Trek in mid Sep 2011. Surya , the director of the company, made fast response on all emails and provided all the information and assistance right away. There was earthquake struck the mountain area during the trekking, Surya and his guide provided sufficient information so that I understood the safety of the mountain and carried on my journey without any problem. Well Done.

I contacted Kathmandu Valley tours b/c I wanted to go see Kathmandu and to take see Mt. Everest via the Everest flight. Surya (owner) contacted me immediately and tailored a tour that fit my needs and time frame. The tour that they tailored for me also included transportation to and from the airport and to all destinations, which was per my request. If I ever return to Nepal, I will contact Surya again to schedule another tour. He and his team are very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. I have already recommended friends to Surya that want to do the Everest BAse Camp tour and see other things in Kathmandu and Kathmandu Valley.

I am Roman Marks (from USA) and I am close to be 70 years old! I signed up with Asian Journey for a trip of my life! I selected them using a web search. They had the most attractive offer for the money and were very accommodating in creating my schedule. In 23 days I crammed Everest Base Camp, Kala Patar, Island Peak (6,189 meters), white water Rafting and Chitwan National Park and I prayed to accomplish some and return home alive and unhurt. The trip and the company beat all my expectations!!!
First and foremost was my guide – Babu Gurung. He was smart, resoursfull, helpful, attentive and a real friend. Only because of him I was able to make all I dreamed for. When I had symptoms of altitude sickness, he helped me to cope with it, helped me with my loss of appetite, head aches, loss of sleep, he even had medicine for my stomach problems. He designed the training for HAS measured to my abilities and gave me plenty of rest and entertainment beating me in all the card games I tought him how to play. When I was coming back from summiting Island Peak (1200 m up and 1400 m down in 16 hours), he met me on the way back with 2 liters of hot chocolate. This touched me to tears. When my camera gave out, he gave me his camera to use. His care and attention can’t be measured in words!
In a competitive price from Asian Journeys I got a fantastic 23 days trip, with guide that became my friend, porter that carried my load, everything was taken care of food, transportation, lodging. All I had to do is move, enjoy the surroundings, and people I met on the trial and in the hotels.
I highly recommend Asian Journey for your future trip to Nepal. If you want any details, call 843-766-3274, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Browse more reviews on Tripadvisor or be first to review us.
