Just recently finished a fantastic 12 days trekking using Imperial Nepal. This experience was excellent.
Our guide, Hari Amgai, was funny, caring, and always positive. He went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to making sure we were comfortable and feeling okay ascending the mountain. His knowledge of the area definitely made for an insightful journey. If you decide to reserve a trip, go with Hari hands down!!!
Paras, our Trek Manager, was very organized and communicative through all stages of the planning of the trip.
Overall, I would recommend Imperial Nepal to my closest friends and family -- simply a wonderful experience!

Safety and Precaution
It is necessary that you take in good precaution during your travel to avoid any difficulties in your 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 to 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 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 Everest view trek.
