Beginning from Lukla, you will walk through all the Sherpa villages on the way to the Everest and back. Stand on the foot of Mount Everest and gaze at the majestic giant all you can. The Everest Base Camp is where all mountaineers begin their summit of the highest peak in the world. But the journey begins quite before that. You have to walk through gorges, valleys, rivers, forests and villages to reach the base camp itself. Although you will not attempt to scale the Everest, you will set foot on it nevertheless. It is not the same but it comes quite close. Maximum altitude is from 4,600 feet at Kathmandu to 18,519 feet at Kala Patthar.
About Mountain Kick: Mountain Kick is a Kathmandu-based trip operator and we organize adventure sports, trekking and sightseeing trips all over Nepal. We believe that a true Himalayan adventure is a blend of endurance in general and a healthy dose of thrill in particular. We attempt at making your holiday just that. We are a team of travelling enthusiasts ourselves and after years of exploring the Himalayas we like to believe that we know our way around the mountains and can share the “kick” that enthralled us with you. Although Mountain Kick is just a startup, all of us have done this for long enough to see what the Himalayas had to offer beyond commercial holiday packages to carve a niche for ourselves. The Himalayas never fail to inspire.

Ace Holidays Announces 50% Discount on 15-Day Trek to Everest Base Camp Booked by Feb. 28

Trekking, climbing and adventure company Ace Holidays  has just announced 50 percent savings to guests who book an epic trek, a 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek by Feb. 28, 2015.
Trekking, climbing and adventure company Ace Holidays has just announced 50 percent savings to guests who book an epic trek, a 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek by Feb. 28, 2015.

KATHMANDU, Nepal,– Trekking, climbing and adventure company Ace Holidays has just announced 50 percent savings to guests who book an epic 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek by Feb. 28, 2015.

“Our rationale for offering this incredible price is to re-introduce people to Nepal after last year’s Everest issues,” said Prem K. Khatry, founder and director of Ace Holidays. He referred to the April 18, 2014, tragedy that killed 16 Nepali mountain workers. Since then the number of foreign trekkers to this part of the world has declined.

The program is, after the discount, $950 per person, double, when people book using a designated promo code: HIMALAYA. Scheduled guaranteed departures are offered weekly from February to June and September to December.

The trip begins and ends in Kathmandu. Accommodations in hotels and while on the trek in guesthouses are provided, as well as meals and guide (English speaking) services, airport transfers, porters to carry luggage on the trek and the expenses related to them, Everest National Park Permit and Tims Permit for trekking, domestic air tickets and domestic airport tax, Ace Holidays’ duffel/kit bag, sun hat, all government taxes, vat, tourist service charges.

Participants enjoy an ever-changing panorama of mountains that are beautiful, impressive and awesome, even more so as the destination comes closer. A highlight is a view of Ama Dablam, thought to be the most beautiful mountain in the world that dominates the skyline of the Chukkung Valley. Enroute guests trek through Sherpa villages enjoying the warm hospitality and service found at their guesthouses and learning about Sherpa culture, colorful “chortens” and prayer flags. When from a base camp Everest is framed, guests mark off yet another bucket list life experience.

As for the true reason for the unprecedented discount offer, Khatry explains, “The decline in visitors and engagements for mountain workers is really hurting local economies. Nepal is safe for travelers and Ace wants to bring them back to help the local economy. Generally a Sherpa (mountain worker) makes 10 times the average Nepalese income by working two months on Everest. This money is used to support his family. Without foreign climbers to support on the mountain, the alternative sources of income for these Sherpa who rely on expedition work are scarce.”

Nepalese-Owned Company

Prem K Khatry founded Ace the Himalaya in 2006 after working for many years as a freelance tour/trekking leader. Prem founded Ace to be a 100 percent locally owned, inbound ground operator in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. As a Nepalese-owned company, Ace offers wholesale tour operators the twin benefits of affordable ground services and superior quality itineraries and travel planning services. Today, the company employs a staff of 40 and has the distinction of having served more than 2,000 trekking groups in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. The company will soon offer itineraries in northern India and Rajasthan.

Ace Holidays, a division of Ace the Himalaya, is a value-priced trek, tour, and expedition company in Nepal. Its main purpose is to reveal the highest mountains of the world, as well as, the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Ace Holidays also offers rafting, paragliding, mountain biking, bungee jumping, mountain and ultra mountain flights, jungle safaris, festival and cultural tours.
