Our Everest Base Camp Trek – April 2017
Submit your review
I was not sure about either I could be fit for Everest base camp trek or not, but after long exchanging of emails and Skype conversations, application of suggested pre trek trainings increased my confidence to overcome my fear and try this Everest base camp trek.
Actually my weight and fitness was the major issue for me. But as Indira assisted me to try hiking, do physical trainings, within two months I lost my weight considerably and felt confident in hiking at mountains. I also had a knee problem that used to cause problem time to time but the modification in planned itinerary, slow and steady walk with careful attention by my guide Shiva and assistance from Parbat finally paid off after weeks as I was successful in stepping at Everest base camp.
Again, with continuous support from Shiva and Hari from Icicles, my contingency day accommodation was arranged with flights rearrangement at Everest region. I found Icicles genuine and Eveready trekking agency who were always ready to assist anything to made their client’s trip successful one. Recommended for all travelers!
I knew Shiva from Icicles Adventure in 2014 when we had done Langtang Valley Trek together and since then we are wonderful friends. Along with Shiva ever smiling my friend Hari, helpful Indira and entire strong porter crew from Icicles Adventure treks; to all of them I would like to express my sincere thank you for everything that you guys arranged, managed my Everest base camp trek.
It was a case of unfortunate that our baggage were missing while boarding a flight from Doha airport to Kathmandu and it was immediate arrangement of transportation and assistance from Hari in helping find out our baggage from Kathmandu airport. It was a nice gesture of him to go out of his service line and helping us out including getting us other required trekking gears like face mask and hat with trekking poles too.
With my experience, Nepal is must for all adventure lovers and if you are looking for trustworthy agency, then Icicles could be the one.
We had done Annapurna trek with other company and it was not so good experience so, this time while attempting Everest base camp, we always wanted to ensure we book with trusted and experienced agency. Our dilemma cleared out only when one of my friend circles Jacob recently booked his EBC with Icicles recommended us in person.
We wanted to make this Everest base camp unforgettable as I was also planning to propose my girlfriend at base camp with surprise. So, trust and secrecy had to be there. I found Hari, Shiva, my guide along with all porters extremely friendly and top secret was maintained until last minute. We are very much thankful to entire Icicles team for arranging our unforgettable Everest base camp trek. Also special thanks as my love is now my wife. Highly recommended and trustworthy company.
After analyzing and doing good research on internet, we had finally chosen Icicles Adventure Treks after exchanging few emails with Indira about visiting and trekking in Nepal. We were impressed with quick and informative reply which really helped us out in making the right decision from choosing the trip to making this trip really exciting and fun. We had only heard about Mt. Everest and all thanks to Icicles for helping us out to take us at its base camp.
We were specially impressed with their trekking guide Surya who took really good care of us and ensured our trip will be safe, enjoyable one. He first assisted in getting our trekking gears on hire from store at Kathmandu, gave indepth briefing on each trekking day. Also we are grateful to hari for organizing this trip, rearranging our missed luggage and sending it to Lukla on next Goma Air flight. I cant even imagine starting the trek from Lukla with our luggage still not arriving. Later I understood that due to extra weight by one of the passenger in our plane, our bag was queued in next flight.
Overall I am very much satisfied with the services from Icicles and definitely recommend its services for other travelers looking for visiting Nepal.
As we had done plenty of research and compared many trekking companies based on price, reviews and recommendations, we found that Icicles stood among them as they were focused on providing better service rather than just getting the booking which reflected while corresponding with them in email. Quick reply on our enquiries and best value for money price impressed us hence we chose Icicles as our trekking partner.
They also helped us in getting sleeping bags at Namche as one of my friend missed his at Kathmandu. At every point of our trip, our trekiking guide Parbat made us feel like we were of one single family trekking to base camp of Everest. I should also mention that Icicles provided us down jacket to every members to which we had to return them after the trip. We also found good accommodation along the trails even at high season without much fuss as we had seen few foreigners sleeping outside at dining hall due to shortage of room in lodges.
Finally big thanks to Icicles and entire team who helped us making this trip a successful one and ensuring our safety. From our expereince we found that Icicles is run by professionals and they simply know best in what they do. So, all the folks out there, remember Icicles and contact Hari, if you are planning adventure in Nepal Himalayas.
We completed our Everest base camp trek along with group of 8 friends. We chose Icicles as we were provided plenty of information as soon as we had any queries. Quick response time, quality services, experienced trekking guide, they made this challenging trip an enjoyable experiences. We get to know about local culture, tradition and description.
Therefore we would like to thank all Icicles team, specially, Indira, Hari and Shiva with whom we met and made our exiciting EBC trip a successful one. From domestic flight arrangements to Lukla to tea houses and restaurants and accommodation in Kathmandu, all of our trekking needs were fulfilled.
Our comfortability, well beings, health and safety all were properly taken care of. Shiva has told that it will be completely different experience during autumn, as snowfalls and different views, we are planning to return back to Himalayas this October too. Lets see, what happens, but if I return, then no doubt I will go with Shiva and Icicles adventure.
Me and 6 of my friends joined Everest base camp trek with Icicles Adventure this March 2017. Hari, the director of the company, and Indira helped us from planning, organizing and also in preparing for this mission Everest. My friend Hari and guides Shiva were very helpful and didn’t hesitate to answer any of our questions. Icicles team were always there to make our Everest Trek a successful adventure.
Our trip leader Shiva, Parbat and porter team including Prakash were very friendly and helped us getting in accommodation as well as food on our plate. They were very knowledgable and had good connections with lodge owners. Special thanks to Shiva for getting my phone charged at Lobuche freely. He was professional in briefing the next day’s plan and also took care of every of our group members.
I will surely pass a good word as recommendation to my friend circle about Icicles. They are very good in customer service at very competitive rates.
Everest base camp trek was there in my mind since my early days in school. I knew that it was no any easy task , but thanks to Icicles Adventure who gave me great experienced trip leader to take care and my necessities during this adventure. All the things went according to our planned itinerary, there were no any flight delays, I had well prepared by joing small trips in my home country, which helped me a lot to hike at higher altitudes without much issue. Yes, I had headache at Gorakshep, but good information from my guide helped me to get out of it, as we hiked Kalapathher and had Garlic soup. Then next day EBC, wow, finally I did EBC, Yay! It was my great achievement and dream come true moment.
We had a great Everest base camp trek with Icicles Adventure this spring season. Our trekking days were full of exciting adventures with few surprises as well. All of our trekking needs were taken care of and I must say that trekking guides and other team took a very good care of us including accommodation, meals and other needs. Specially, we are very thankful to Mr. Hari Shrestha for a great job who has manage everything from hotels, hospitality and trekking management. Now as I have successfully completed this EBC trek, I am planning to go for ABC trek this coming September with Icicles. I will recommend Icicles for other travelers looking for quality services too.

We arranged a meet the next day to talk about the trip and meet my guide Surya.The EBC trek was a wonderful experience and a great adventure (can recommend). Surya my guide was a great companion on this trek, despite my slow moment (really hard walking in the heights)and a minor snowstorm, we made it to Everst Base Camp and back. Surya made me feel safe and in good hands the whole way, hes calm and gentle sprite makes him a good and stable guide with a nice smile on hes lips at all times. When ever we arrived at a tea lodge, i would have a room with in minutes and he was all ways attentive of my needs. Surya really made my dream come thru about the EBC Trek.Upon arrival at Kathmandu, i had a few days to spend, Hari arranged a city-tour for me to see the most important landmarks, more of plight than lust, but i had a terrific day and can recommend if you like being cultural.All in all i had a great time in Nepal Thanks to Surya, Hari and icicles adventure treks.So i can really recommend this tour operator for your Nepal experience.
