Deven and the boys from HHE took 9 eager Aussies on an expedition of a lifetime. Our ages ranged from 37-60 and the guides took us successfully and safely to Everest Base Camp so that we could run the World’s Highest Marathon. We all successfully completed the 11 day hike as well as the marathon back to Namche (42km) without any hitches. We listened to Deven and his incredible wisdom and experience which resulted in a 100 % success rate! If you’re looking for the best possible chance to reach Base Camp without the ill effects of altitude sickness then this company is the one for you. We felt 100% cared for and safe for the whole 3 weeks! They made our trip totally doable and had an incredible ability to treat everyone individually to help us all achieve our goals! Our safety was never compromised which meant we could come home to our families with the most positive experience. I can’t recommend this company (and team of HHE guides and porters) enough! Ask for Deven – he’s one of four owners with 20 years local experience in the area of the Himalayas! Speaks fantastic English and has a unique knowledge of the villages and people of the Khumbu Region. You just gotta make plans with HHE!
