Discover Everest Base Camp with Discovery – you won’t be disappointed.
I just got back from a trek to Everest Base Camp with Discovery and highly recommend booking a trek with them!
Aside from enchanting scenery, the trek to EBC gave us the chance to experience Sherpa culture, visiting monasteries, museums and witnessing mountain life for ourselves. I loved walking just for the pleasure of it, through villages, rhododendron forests, past colourful prayer wheels, across suspension bridges, behind yak trains and, my favourite, through valleys where the mountains circled us like the spine of a massive sleeping dragon.
At night, I loved sitting around the fire and listening to the guides and teahouse owners in animated conversations I didn’t understand but which were always lively and filled with laughter.
Our guide, Dol was wonderful. He was quiet and unassuming but also filled with knowledge about the region. I loved seeing his photos from other treks as well as learning about his life in Nepal and the village he where he grew up. It was also lovely having someone to take care of us. He chose excellent accommodation, made sure we were always looked after with tea and refreshments and set a good walking pace for the trek. We would not have had the same experiences if we’d set off alone and we definitely wouldn’t have learnt as much as we did about the Solukhumbu region, the Sherpa culture or the mountains themselves. Our porter was incredible too, always arriving before us so our bags were ready in our room and basically just a true champion like all the other amazing porters we witnessed on our journey.
The trek to EBC is pretty unforgettable. Not only are you surrounded by breathtaking scenery every second of the day but you get to experience for yourself the amazingly warm hospitality of the Nepalese people, witness their unique way of life and carry with you the sense of personal achievement that comes with visiting the highest point on earth. If you do decide to take on the challenge Discovery is definitely the company to do it with.
The service from this company, starting from the first e-mail contact ending with a goodbye-dinner makes us feel so welcome. the certificate after we finished the trek shows that the company too, feels proud to share this moment with you.
A special thanks to our guide SAROZ, now our brother. He was professional, caring and above that, we had a lot of fun together. . He was so proud of us and enjoying the moment with us, he made our trek even more special! In the future I will hopefully trek with him again.
Annapurna Circuit 15 days
My partner and I just completed Annapurna Circuit over the course of 15 days, facilitated by Discovery World Trekking. We could not be more pleased with our experience. From the outset, Paul was accomodating to our wishes and prompt with all replies (we organised the trek from Australia 6 months in advance). He was reasonable, open and sincere with all prices, inclusions and exclusions.
The trek itself was phenomenal. We were guided by Saroz and our porter was Amar. Saroz was knowledgeable, informative and very experienced on the terrain. He was attentive to our needs, always recognising when we required rest or some extra assistance. Saroz always encouraged us to go at our own pace which was very helpful and evidence of good guiding skills. He was well equipped with poles, crampons and medications that all proved useful to me during the trek.
All accomodation was clean and comfortable.
We were given a certificate for our achievement, a prayer flag and necklace, all as kind gestures that really strengthened our love for DWT and this country.
Overall, we are thrilled with our experience and would DEFINITELY highly recommend DWT to anyone. We hope to come back to Nepal in 2 years for another trek & will definitely be asking for Saroz and Amar again.
Annapurna circuit trek 10 days
I just returned from an Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake trek organized by Discovery World Trekking. From my first communication with the owner, Paul, to my trek with Dol, the team at Discovery World went above and beyond to create a truly exceptional experience.
Paul answered all of my logistical questions and helped me make local arrangements, all with a positive supportive attitude that made me much more confident in my decision to come to Nepal alone. On the trail, Dol patiently and cheerfully answered all of my questions and shared his culture with me. He was also very responsive and flexible, suggesting changes to the itinerary that I might enjoy and accommodating my requests as they came up. He even carried my sleeping bag for me on a couple of the toughest days!
The trek itself was gorgeous, and we had great weather given that I was there during monsoon season (few clouds and almost no rain!). Tilicho lake and the Thorong La pass were definite highlights!
This team is truly committed to making sure each client has the best experience possible, and they have a ton of experience and know what works. I've done a lot of trekking in many different countries, and the organization and personal attention I saw on this trek were second to none. Discovery World is an awesome local company, and the obvious choice if you're coming to Nepal to go trekking. I'm already looking forward to reconnecting with them in a couple of years to trek to Everest Base Camp!
Annapurna base camp trek 7 days
I had an amazing trip to Annapurna Base Camp with Discovery World Trekking. It was my first time trekking and first time solo travelling so I was a bit nervous but Sandip my guide made me feel completely at ease and couldn't have been more helpful. He made sure I had everything I needed: enough food, tea, blankets, water and entertained me along the trek by sharing information and stories, teaching me Nepalise songs and taking lots of photos. The views along the way were really incredible and I enjoyed every minute of the trek. The whole trek was very well organised and every time we arrived at a village after a long day trekking, my guide Sandip had a room and cup of tea sorted within minutes! Sandip knew the route very well and the route was well planned out to allow time for rest and acclimatisation. It just took a couple of emails to Paul to organise the trek and It was really worth the money I paid to have the trip so well organised and stress free, right from the beginning when Paul met me at the airport. Thank you to Paul and Sandip and everyone at discovery world trekking! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company to anyone thinking of trekking in Nepal
Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake 16 days
I can not fault our guide Soraz and porter Amar as they were a delight to be around, they were professional, genuine and had a youthly passion for delivering the best trekking experience. Soraz is knowledgeable and has adequate English skills to translate and would always travel at our pace, never pushed us to go faster or further. Amar is bubbly, loves music and would sing for us every day whilst trekking. They both seem the happiest with a cup of warm tea playing cards with us which was a delight.
As a whole this experience in Nepal was amazing and unforgettable, thank you so much Discovery World Trekking. See you again soon.
Climbing lobuche East peak
We had a great time in Nepal and a successful trip to summit lobuche east.
The discovery world trekking team were very helpful and professional.
Thank you to Paul for making the trip possible in the short time we had and short notice we gave him.
Our guide Soraz was very experienced and was helpful with any questions we had.
Same with our Porter ( Pasan) and the Two Sherpas who were very experienced ( Karma and Nima) both who had summited Everest Nemours times.
It was an unforgettable trip and we will definitely be back again for the next peak to climb hopefully with the same team.
Great job from Discovery World Trekking team.
12 day Everest Basecamp Trek of a Lifetime (March 2018)
Paul from DWT made the trip easy. He organised everything down to the minute which left us with peace of mind and we could just enjoy the trek. No need to worry about meals, permits, accommodation, transfers, airfares, luggage and other things when Paul is looking after you!
Our guide Dol was also awesome. No question was too big or small. He went above and beyond to make sure this was a trek that we will never forget. His knowledge on the local cultures and nature really added another layer to the trek and gave us insights that only the locals possess.
My wife and I were the only people on the trek which was great as we could walk our own pace. The scenery is breathtaking and the trekking was not too hard.
It was an awesome feeling reaching Everest Basecamp after 9 days of climbing. You feel like you are on top of the world. Our guide Dol even provided is with a cool Everest medal to remember our achievement.
On the final day all flights from Lukla to Kathamandu were cancelled due to bad weather. Our international flight was the next day. Paul worked around the clock to make sure that we were on the first flight out of Lukla the next day and even negotiated a helicopter backup plan through his local connections. Paul really do care about their clients! All of the reviews are true :)
It was also good to give my business to a local Nepali vendor who knows the ins and outs of the local industry.
Overall, the 12 day Everest trek was the best we have ever done. I highly recommend Discovery World Trekking!
Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Sanctuary & Base Camp
A big THANK YOU !!! to Paul and his fantastic company Discovery World Trekking. In November my wife and I spent 16 memorable days walking through the mountains, people, and culture of Nepal with our super awesome guide Karan and porter Kul. Paul was very responsive and professional with our emails and put together a fantastic trip for us even though we requested a last minute change to our itinerary. Our guide Karan and porter Kul were excellent travel companions, always concerned with our safety and well being. Their local knowledge of the route, people, customs, and all of the many day to day questions and concerns that invariably come up along the way are attributes which are well worth the money and cannot be completely replaced using a guide book and "winging it" on your own. We had a great and memorable life experience in a magical "step back in time" country and will look forward to our next adventure with Paul and Discovery World Trekking. A huge THANK YOU to Paul, Karan & Kul. Highly recommend this outfit ! Jeff
17 day tour of 3 High Pass + EBC
We booked our trip with Discovery World Trekking (DWT), not knowing what to expect... prior to arriving in Nepal all our questions were promptly answered by managing director Paul within a timely manner assuring us that he will take care of everything and not to worry. The instruction of visa application, flexible payment options, airport transfer, reasonable places to stay with the city centre was only a few examples of the additional service provided
Upon our arrival we received a warm welcome to Nepal by Paul and his team, we were then taken to our hotel and scheduled a time for our tour briefing
Paul took us through the program in detail and introduced us to our guide Superman
Some last minute shopping and the next morning we embarked on a epic once in a lifetime journey
I'm sure everyone that uses DWT would say that their guide and porter was the best team, but I can assure you that our teams Superman and Money will exceed your expectations, these guys were so cool that within a few hours you would swear we've known each other for years. Money doesn't say much but his an absolute machine Always ahead to check that the road ahead is safe for us to follow. If at any stage there is some form of obstacle Money would call Superman to give him a heads up. he would also go ahead and secure our rooms where possible so when we arrived after a long day we would have a warm cup of lemon and honey tea within minutes followed by a comfortable room with our bags waiting, in a challenging environment I would consider it to be 5 star service
In the morning, pack your bag and leave it in your room. Money does not like seeing you carry anything, so just leave it to him he will take care of it
SUPERMAN guide of guides - The Mountain Man, what a legend. this guy knows the mountain and all the tricks of the trade, zero tolerance on unsafety!. and will make sure you have the trip of your dreams. Informative, knowledgeable but most of all he took complete ownership for the trip and experience
This is the team you want on your expedition and I will guarantee you in good hands
They exceeded our expectations and I would highly and confidently recommend them
If you planning a trip use DWT and my team Superman and Money
Tell Superman the password is: "one minute - little bit up little down" and leave the rest to him
He has incredible patience and will make sure you achieve your goal even irrespective of the time it takes, weather or terrain. he is quickly to adapt to your style and will always give you options based on your capability and how you feeling
Get use to him saying: "No problem, no problem" - he will make it happen
Listen to him, if he says you need to rest, stay at a certain height to acclimatize or descend trust me listen to him. don't worry about the schedule or falling behind
Superman knows all the shortcuts and alternative route to ensure you complete what you set out to complete
We lost two days due to bad weather into Lukla and I got sick just under 5k metre's
I naturally wanted to push through and not be the weakest link, Superman calmly explained to me that we will still reach our goal, but the most important thing is to look after our body and recovery, that can only be achieved if we go down to 4400m
I took his advise and it was the best decision ever which ensured that we completed our trip
The mountain is not for hero's, you at its mercy. leave it to the team and experience the most memorable views you can imagine
When we get another opportunity we will be back for sure...
I miss these guys so much as we consider ourselves family
Paul will take care of all the logistics, he is experienced and extremely well connected with great leverage, so you have nothing to worry about
So if you considering a tour book now with Discovery World trekking
If you still not confident feel free to check out my Everest 2017 album on facebook
Its public so you can view all the picture and videos we made along the way
