My family and I recently trekked to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with Imperial Nepal Trek (INT) and this company really did so much for us to make our experience enjoyable and unforgettable.
They had a high level of professionalism and were well-organised since our touch down in Kathmandu. At the airport we were met by who was to be out guide to EBC and back (friendly and patient Sujan Khanal), and INT organised a taxi straight to our hotel (hotel also organised by INT). The following day we were met by the organiser (Paras Khanal) of the feel in person, who gave us a run down of itinerary and answered our many questions so patiently!
On that note, Paras was very accomodating with creating an itinerary specifically tailored to our needs - this was a huge plus, as we didn't have the time to do the trek they initially recommended. paras was very willing to tailor a trek to suit some of our limitations.
INT also made some of those admin and difficult parts of travelling in a new city MUCH easier - they organised all taxi transfers around the City, as we needed, the organised the down jackets, down sleeping bags and duffel bags that would be incredibly necessarily in the colder parts of the trek! They also facilitated some sight-seeing around Kathmandu and a provided 2 really enjoyable dinners - a welcome dinner on arrival to Kathmandu and farewell dinner after our trek.
Trekking with our guide and 2 porters was a great experienxe in the mountains - we were looked after, entertained, informed and a bit spoilt at times (that extra cup of coffee or opportunity to have a quick and hot shower when you thought it wasn't possible!). This really made the (at times difficult) trek that much more enjoyable. We are very grateful to Sujan our guide and our 2 porters for all the effort they put in on this trek. They are incredibly tough and resilient to the Himalayan cold!
It was a relief throughout the trek not to have to fuss with payment for every meal and every room etc - these expenses were all included in the total cost we paid INT - and it was well worth it! Very reasonable price and we more than got our money's worth. Definitely contact Paras and INT for quotes.
The trekl itself is amazing but I figure you probably know that already and more likely, you're trying to decide which trekking company to choose. I would highly recommend Imperial Nepal Treks!

Safety and Precaution
It is necessary that you take in good precaution during your travel to avoid any difficulties in your Everest trek. As the Everest trekking leads to higher altitude range, you need some trustworthy, experienced, qualified and well-equipped people around you. Your safety is assured by the local trek guide and other staffs.
Since these hikes take you on the remote Himalayan region, it is very essential that you are accompanied with the very experienced, qualified and well-equipped leader such that your trek runs safe and successful one. The guides of Imperial Nepal Treks are trained and licensed from Nepal Government, certified from TAAN and Nepal Mountaineering Association with experience over 8 years. So, this is a double assurance for your safety and to make sure that you are in the correct and professionals hand. Thus, you need not worry about anything; we are here only at your service.
Regarding health issues, we are well aware that you are likely to get Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Going up high at faster pace is too harmful and can be fatal as well because of less oxygen. Some general symptoms of AMS are:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dizziness or light-headedness
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea or vomiting
- Rapid pulse (heart rate)
- Shortness of breath with exertion
Due to this, we need good time to adapt in the current environment and thus we have planned our itineraries in such a way that we get enough time for acclimatization to ensure your health safety.
A good planning for Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is a must to minimize the health risks with problems like AMS. And if you are a patient of heart, lungs or blood disease, it is very important that you consult with your doctors and familiarize yourself with the remedies for the diseases before trek.
From this day onwards you will be with us and in safe hands. We will pick you up from the Airport and drop you at the Hotel for rest.

Couldn't have been better!-October 2017
Myself and my Dad did the Everest Base Camp trek. Ram was our guide, and he was incredible every step of the way. Vast knowledge of the trek, and tailored it to us to make the trip enjoyable and comfortable. The manager Paras met us at the hotel the first night and gave us a thorough run through of our itinerary, and on the last night we were treated to a wonderful farewell dinner in a traditional Nepalese restaurant, which was such a lovely way to end the trip. On the trek, Ram was always right by our sides, making sure everything was ok. Unfortunately at the top I got pulmonary edema from the altitude, but Ram looked after me until he was able to get a helicopter. We saw other people who were in similar situations, where their guides barely said two words to them - Ram was with me every 5 minutes, bringing me water or asking if i was ok. Couldn't ask for more from a guide. If you're doing any treks in Nepal, I couldn't recommend this company more!
Amazing sights, amazing people!-October 2017
Just returned from the 16 day trek to Everest Base Camp with INT.
From the start, communications with Paras were good, and he answered all of our questions adequately.
When we arrived in Kathmandu, the taxi was waiting to pick us up at the airport and take us to the lovely Aryatara hotel in Thamel (great hotel and great location).
INT had arranged a tour of some of the major tourist attactions for us for the next day and they were an interesting mix! Never seen a cremation before!!!
On the next day (Tuesday) we were up early and Hari our guide for the trek, met us at the hotel and took us to the airport for the flight to Luckla. Big disappointment here though, as the flights to Luckla were cancelled due to bad weather, but Hari managed to get them rescheduled for the next morning, so it was back to Aryatara hotel and retry again tomorrow.
On the Wednesday, flights were running with just a little delay, and the adventure began. After arriving in Luckla, we had lunch and we were introduced to our porters, Binod and Modan, who were exceptionally good at what they do, and had a cool, calm demeanour about them and they just got on with what they needed to do.
The trek was a wonderful experience, with views that literally took your breath away (especially as we climbed past the 4000m mark and the air got thinner and thinner). I made the mistake of not using my scarf/snood early enough and got a rasping sore throat and the dreaded Khumbu Cough! If you are going to do this trek, try wearing a scarf/snood from as low as Namche Bazaar to prevent this.
All the way on the trek, Hari and the guys kept asking us if we were OK, and making sure we kept hydrated and were eating enough to get us there and back. I cannot thank the 2 porters enough for the amount of hard work they did for us!!! I don't think I could have picked our bags up never mind carried them half way up Everest. Cheers guys!
Due to the delay at the start of the trek, due to flight cancellations, we had changed our return flights to England and gave ourselves a couple of extra days to play with at the end of the trek. Luckily enough we didn't need them, as the flights from Luckla were on schedule, but Paras also arranged a couple of extra nights accommodation for us at Kathmandu, which we were more than happy to pay for, until it was time for us to leave for the airport. It wasn't at the Aryatara, but the hotel was adequate. Paras also arranged for the taxi to pick us up from the hotel and get us to the airport in time for our flight home.
All in all, a wonderful experience that will be remembered for the rest of my life, and once again a big THANK YOU! to the guys, Hari, Binod and Modan for looking after us so well.
We had the most wonderful trek in late May 2017. We give 5 stars to Imperial Nepal. We checked with about 8 trek companies prior to our trip, including 2 companies that our friends' had used. We found Imperial Nepal on the internet and Imperial Nepal with Paras was the most responsive and answered many of our questions prior to the trek. We inquired about food, accomodations, length of the trek, weather, clothes, bathrooms, scenery and helicopters. Paras answered all of our questions. All of our expectations on accomodations, food and facilities were as Paras described, so there were no surprises. Paras had himself worked as a guide for about 5 years prior to working in the sales for Imperial Nepal so he had first had experience on treks.
Imperial Nepal provided first class service. They picked us up from the airport, arranged our hotel in Kathmandu, met us the first day to discuss each day of the trek, went shopping with us for equipment and outfitted us with sleeping bags and jackets. Their tour was very organized. Each day the night before, they would let us know how many miles, how many hours, and the elevation or difficulty to expect, including the type of accomodations we would pull into. There were no surprises and we had a really smooth trek. We had 6 in our group and none of us had any altitude sickness, not even a headache.
The best of Imperial Nepal was their service and friendliness to our family. For our party of six, we had 3 proters and 1 wonderful guide, Sanjan. Throughout the trek, Sanjan gave us tidbits of the history of Nepal, tidbits of the Nepal culture and customs, and tidbits of religion. That made our trek really interesting and personable. We felt like we were being taken on a private trip to their beautiful, treasured homeland, and that made our trip the more special. Our guides were really helpful. At all times, there was a porter for each group of hikers, ie one in the front with the fast group, one in the back for the slow group, and 2 more for the middle. Our guides were always enthusiastic and helpful to us particularly in the early morning hours as we climbed Kala Pathur to 18,300.
Our trek with Imperial Nepal felt like a personal family trip. On the night before our trek we were taken to a restaurant with authentic Nepalese food and dancers and our last night before we left, we were also treated to a going home dinner.
I highly recommend Imperial Nepal and will return to the beautiful country of Nepal for another trek.
EBC nice trekking ExPeriance - May 2017
In my 3rd visit to Kathmandu and my journey to EBC was organized by Mr. Ram from Imperial Nepal Private Day Trekking. I am happy with the overall package that they gave us including the guide.
Trek to Everest Base Camp - April 2017
I have nothing but positive feedback to give. Paras was very helpful in getting back to me via email with my many questions. The trip was a very competitively priced (the cheapest we could find after communicating with many companies). We received everything as advertised. Accommodation and food exceeded expectations and was very comfortable considering where we were. Our porters were fantastic. The highlight of using Imperial would have to be our guide, Gautam Lamsal. He was caring, professional, respectful and a wonderful person. We made good friends with Gautam and we felt very comfortable entrusting him with getting us to and from base camp safely. He made our journey very pleasurable.

“Experience of a lifetime! ” -December 2016
Just came back from an absolutely amazing trekking tour to Everest Base Camp with "Imperial Nepal Treks"!
Right from the beginning I felt myself in very good hands with this agency. Paras gave me all needed information before the tour and made sure that I was as much prepared as possible.
The tour was well organized and the daily walking distances good to manage.
We have been a small group of only two people and our guide Gautam took always very good care of us. He made me feel always safe and looked very well after us. Besides that he was a very nice and funny company to share the walking and as well as the resting time with.
A lot of respect also to our porter Naran who always brought our backpacks on time to our lodges. He did a very good job!
All in all I have to thank these guys a lot! They made one of my dreams come true! I will never forget this experience as one of the best times in my life!
Dhanyabad from the bottom of my heart to Paras, Gautam and Naran!

To say in a few word, very good service overall. Everything as planned from day one, so can´t complain there. These guys are very flexible, and for me that's very good cause I'm not always planning with a lot of time. I did EBC Trek with them.
I arrived to Nepal and they picked me up from the airport, had a nice welcome dinner and the next day flew to Lukla. The guide and the porters were very good, always willing to help and very attentive with bags, food or anything you needed. One very nice detail was that every evening we had fresh fruit for dessert which they carried all the way from Kathmandu! Thanks for that!
The second detail I really liked, and this talk about theri willingness to help you, was that after the trek I had extra time, so the arrange everything for me to go to Pokhara and when I came back to Kathmandu they drove me back to the airport.
Only one minor complain, which will help both the company, I'm talking of you Paras! :), and people who will want to book. Before booking, every email I send them was answer inmediately, really good service. Onced I booked, responses stopped coming. They do read your email, the best example was that they booked me the bus tickets to Pokhara (again, thanks for that), which were waiting for me in the hotel, but I didnt find out till I got there, which I consider very annoying.
Thanks for everything. Keep up the good work.

“One of the greatest experiences of all”- August 2
We had one of the most incredible experiences of all times! walking through the nature for several days to get to everest base camp is just incredible. Our guide Hari is an amazing and lovely person he did everything posible to make our trip more pleasant, if you have the opportunity to make this trip you should ask for Hari to be your guide.
Brilliant trip with ad Brilliant Company - April 2016
After much research my wife and I found Imperial Nepal to be the best value on the market. The service they offered was fantastic, from the very first day of our EBC trek, to the last. Paras replied to our every query instantly and Sujan was an excellent guide. If I was lucky enough to go back to Nepal, I wouldn't even consider another agency.
Everest Resion Trek and NepalkHoliday - March 2016
I booked a trek through Paras with Imperial Trek Nepal over the internet to trek in the Everest region. They were a great choice as they met us at the airport and organised everything including our accommodation, hire stuff and a day tour around Kathmandu. Hari our guide was fantastic, a lot of fun and looked after us very well in the mountains. On our return to Kathmandu Paras also organised a trip for us to the Royal Chitwan National Park and Pokhara. I'd highly recommend Imperial Trek and you won't go wrong with Hari as your guide.

Awesome Everest Base Camp - December 2015
I travelled to Nepal and trekked Everest base camp a week ago in a group of 3. This was an amazing trek. Our guide, Mani were absolutely incredible, informative and safety conscious. Our porters, Tehs and Gopal were amazing, fun to be with and hard working. They take care of us during the hike and make sure all of us are in good condition and treated us like a family. Tea house and food served are clean along the trek. We enjoyed each other accompany and manage to complete the trek safely. I would do this hike again in an instant and only wish we'd had more time together
Booking with Imperial was easy and efficient. They providing us with all the information needed. The guys on the ground/in the office are also friendly and helpful. Overall we are very satisfied and happy with Imperial!
Do visit Nepal!
