Despite the last minute booking,...

16-Nov-2023

Despite the last minute booking, everything went smoothly from start to end. A friend did the EBC trekk recently (October 2023) and Ace came highly recommended. We finally chose the luxury trip to elevate our experience. (Best decision! 😬) Starting from the website, everything is well explained in great detail, leaving me little room for redundant questions. I’ve been previously asking another operator, but information is too general & vague, raising so many unanswered questions. Booking procedures were also straightforward, with a few questions here and there being nicely accommodated by Ace. All services promised were delivered, from pick up, hotel transfers etc. We’re also delighted with the hotel chosen, loved Ramada’s breakfast, rooms were clean & spacious bathrooms. Came the actual trek, our guide Madan & porter Jit, also came highly recommended by a friend. Great recommendation, indeed! Madan’s leadership on this trek has delivered us a fun, relaxing, yet safe and secure experience! His extensive experience & knowledge on Himalayan treks made us feel always at ease that we’re in good hands. Always briefing us on details about what’s coming during the trek, food & drinks suggestion, constantly being attentive to our needs. When my husband started showing high altitude symptoms, Madan had always give the right suggestions on what to take or do, giving us the assurance that we can make this trek. Jit our porter also displayed a well behaved professional manner, our belongins are always ontime & safely landed in the next guesthouse. And if we need to get some stuff in the middle of the trek, he would be happily waited for us and let us unpack to take what we need. Thank you, Madan & Jit! Briefings were always done by Prem himself, showing us a great deal of responsibility & sense of belonging to the business and customer’s satisfaction. What I appreciated even more, there was even a post-trek evaluation meeting, ending it eith a nice farewell dinner. I think it’s trully a nice touch to make our whole experience wonderful, like I said from start to end. Thank you Ace, Prem, Madan & Jit, for taking care of us, for giving us such sweet memories. I will definitely recommend you guys to everyone!

My journey to Everest Base...

01-Apr-2024

My journey to Everest Base Camp with Ace the Himalaya was nothing short of extraordinary. From the breathtaking vistas of streams, lush valleys, and towering peaks, to the warm camaraderie of the team, to the many moments of sharing the trail with all those beautiful yaks, every moment was filled with awe and wonder. Nimesh Nepal, our guide extraordinaire, deserves special commendation. His deep knowledge of the region, its people, and the terrain, coupled with his passion for the mountains, made every step of the trek a delightful adventure. Nimesh's guidance was not just about navigating the trails but also about immersing ourselves in the rich culture and history of the region. His stories and insights added a layer of depth to my experience that I will cherish forever. Ace also provided an incredible team of porters – Birkaji, Padam, and Bigyan. Their strength, speed, and unwavering smiles were the backbone of our journey. Despite the challenging terrain, they carried our belongings with grace and ease, ensuring that we could focus solely on soaking in the magnificence of the Himalayas. The attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction demonstrated by Ace the Himalaya is truly excellent. Ace had excellent, detailed information on their website (including a superb packing list), and was direct and clear with communications from the start. On the trail, from the comfortable teahouse accommodations to the delicious meals prepared along the way, every aspect of the trek was meticulously planned and executed. Standing at Everest Base Camp, surrounded by towering peaks and fluttering prayer flags, I felt a profound sense of accomplishment and gratitude. Thanks to the exceptional team at Ace the Himalaya, this dream of a lifetime became a reality. I wholeheartedly recommend trekking with Ace the Himalaya to anyone seeking to experience the surreal and otherworldly beauty of these unique and amazing mountains. I can't wait to book another trek with Ace the Himalaya in the future.

Ace the Himalaya 14 day...

15-Mar-2024

Ace the Himalaya 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek I can’t say enough good things about Ace the Himalaya. Prem and Sujan in the office helpfully answered our pre-trek questions promptly. Met at airport by our guide, Raj, with marigold leis. From start to finish, Raj was there with guidance and support. Supposed to start our trek on 3/3, but flight to Lukla cancelled due to bad weather (not uncommon). It was third day in a row of flight cancellations, so lots of people stuck in Kathmandu or Manthali- where many had opted to go to get Lukla flights. Raj explained our options: our group decided to book helicopter for next day (cost split 5 ways), and took helicopter to Lukla- amazing views of mountains and hills on way to Lukla. Later found out this was good decision as some stuck in Manthali with other outfitters had to switch to other treks as not enough time to get to EBC. Started our trek. Other than a little rain on day 1 had pretty clear weather, though still cold. On Day 2 stairs to Namche nearly took me out (I’m short, and many stairs came up to my thigh), but Raj’s encouragement: “Drink, drink” and “Walk slowly, slowly” got me though (my advice if you’re short is to add more step ups to your training regimen!) Raj often checked in with us to make sure we had no symptoms of AMS and checked our O2 saturations daily. Every day we would arrive at tea house to find our bags already there by our amazing porters Naryana, Sher Bahadur and Paisal. Naryana also made delicious fruit platters for us every night and filtered water for the trek- until the filter froze in Lobuche. Teahouse accommodations become more basic the higher you go up the hill: at first, rooms with private bathroom, flush toilet become shared bathroom with bucket flush toilet and outdoor sink. This shouldn’t be surprising since Gorak Shep teahouse is at 17,027 ft, and all supplies must be carried there. Views are absolutely amazing and cannot be adequately described. Raj was extremely informative, knowing all the heights of the mountains, routes to climb, etc. He also knows everyone on the trail: he has been a guide with Ace since they started 17 years ago. Route to EBC has many amazing views: Ama Dablum-wow- and cool suspension bridges to walk over, including the double Hilary bridge. We were also able to visit Tengboche Monastery. On the base camp day, you hike from Lobuche to Gorak Shep, rest for an hour and then go to EBC at 17,598 ft. Climbing moraine to Gorak Shep wiped me out: Raj was so helpful carrying my pack and helping to find the best route over the large boulders (he did the same thing the next day on the way back). Just took my phone, poles and snickers bar to EBC (my husband carried water), and it was still difficult, but I made it! Beautiful bowl surrounded by mountains Pumo Ri, Lingtren, Khumbutse, Lho La and the wall of Nuptse with the top of Everest and the South Col just behind it. Great views of Khumbu Icefall and Khumbu Glacier: you walk across glacier to get to EBC. Many photos and then back to Gorak Shep for a well-deserved rest. On the way back my husband and I decided the last 2 days of the trek might be a little much for us: Raj got helicopter for us (shared) and even got us on a flight to Lukla the same day! As a final example of the awesome individual attention given by Ace, my husband’s 60th birthday was during our trek. Raj bought a cake from Cafe 4410 in Dingboche (if you’re ever in Dingboche, go there), our porters secretly carried it to Lobuche, and they surprised my husband (and me) with an impromptu birthday party! Yes, Raj planned a birthday party at 16,503 ft! If you’re going to trek to EBC, go with Ace the Himalaya!

We had an incredible time...

20-Mar-2024

We had an incredible time on our 14 day trek to Everest Base camp all thanks to our amazing guide Sunil Ghale & porter Arjun Lama! Not only were they both super friendly, kind & fun to hang out with but we also learned so much from them about the area & Nepali culture. Sunil Ghale took such great care of us - always making sure we were prepared, getting what we needed & making sure that we were being safe in terms of altitude. He’s such a fun person to hang out with & after this trek we consider him a friend! 100% recommendations requesting him for your trek!! Arjun Lama always has a smile on his face despite carrying over 30kg of our things on the same intense 14 day trek that we did with light day bags! He’s super friendly & knowledgeable about the area & we had a great time spending time with him & learning from him! 100% recommend requesting him for your trip - as a soon to be guide!

21-Jan-2024

I trekked with ACE to Everest Basecamp in October/November 2023 and it was definitely worth it! Spectacular views and a once in a lifetime experience. A big credit and thanks for the amazing familiar atmosphere and the experience on the trek itself has to be given to our three expert guides and the porters. Pasang as lead guide handled all of our problems in a nice and calm way, with great humor, and professionalism. Our assistant guides Sauman with his bright personality, and Birkaji are equally great and the trio complimented each other well. Our porters were also amazing, especially Lhakpa, Gopal and Hira! Overall, it really felt like everyone at ACE made sure that we got the best experience and had an incredible time on this stunning trek. I will definitely trek with ACE again next time!

Wow! What a beautiful adventure...

26-Jan-2024

Wow! What a beautiful adventure with our guide, Madan, as we trekked to Annapurna Base Camp. Madan was so friendly and accommodating and we were so lucky to have him as our guide. Because it was only our small group of 4, he let us push further than usual each day to give us more time at Base Camp. Madan not only paved our path, but made sure that we were comfortable every step of the way. His kindness even extended beyond his duties on his day off when I ended up in the hospital in Kathmandu and he stayed with me there all day. Ace the Himalayas (more specifically, Sajiya) checked on me each day, which just goes to show the added love of this company. When we return, we will 100% choose Ace the Himalayas again! And, next time, we hope that Madan will take us to his favorites!

This was a trip of a lifetime. Milan was the best guide one could ask for. When I met Milan, I knew that I was in good hands. If you are thinking of ever hiking the Himalaya's I higher encourage you to book with Ace the Himalaya's and ask for Milan. Thanks again!

24-Oct-2023

I had the privilege of embarking on the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal with Ace the Himalaya, and I can confidently say that this tour company exceeded all my expectations. From the incredible scenary of the Himalaya Mountain Range to the exceptional performance of our guides; Ramhari, Soman, Kumar, Assistant Guide Hari and the dedicated porters Girija, Jaya, Shere, and Mukul, the entire journey was filled with unforgettable moments. The value for the money is outstanding. It's worth paying a bit more for the quality of care and service you receive. In situations where safety can be an issue, trust in your guides is paramount, and this team excelled in this regard. The company's customer service iss exemplary, with quick and genuine responses to our inquiries and concerns. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Ace the Himalaya to fellow trekkers in Nepal. Their level of expertise, care, and trustworthiness is unrivaled, and I'm already planning my next trip with them. I wholeheartedly rate them 5 out of 5 stars. In summary, my journey with Ace the Himalaya was exceptional, thanks to their knowledgeable guides, responsive customer service, and unwavering commitment to safety.

28-Dec-2023

EBC trip successfully complete. An amazing achievement, made possibe by Ace the Himalayas, bravo. Incredibly big shout out to the amazing guide, Nimesh, and the two porters, Birkaji and Gopal. Nimesh was a breath of fresh air from start to finish, very knowledgeable and was more than willing at any time to answer questions, impart his knowledge and cater for our needs on the trek. His English was great and his personality and passion for his job was admirable. Birkaji and Gopal were our wonderful porters, who carried the majority of our belongings from stop to stop, but their work didn’t stop there, they waited on us three times a day, dropped our bags in our rooms and provided a responsive service always with a smile. Birkaji even supported us on the acclimatisation hikes and EBC hike. Really nice guys. Top work. The trek itself is truly mesmerising, the landscape is constantly changing as you ascend to EBC. The acclimatisation days are well structured and allow time for your body to adjust whilst enjoying what the wonderful route has to offer. I would fully recommend this to anyone that is after a refreshing challenge, the sense of accomplishment after each day created for a magical and memorable journey from starting at Kathmandu and touching back down from Lukla to Kathmandu 12 days later. Prepare for it to be cold in a morning and on an evening, but the warmth you get from the day sunshine during December creates for great walking conditions. The accommodation at the different stops was above our expectations considering the nature of the experience, and the food was ample and quality, perfect to ensure you’re fuelled up for the hikes ahead. Put a request in for Nimesh, Birkaji and Gopal, you won’t be disappointed.
