    This team made our dream a reality!

    Going on the EBC trek is a once-in-lifetime experience; bucket-list expedition; and daunting adventure. Having the right support is critical to making it a successful and enjoyable experience.
    Dream Heaven Adventure (Suman and trek team - Huparaj - guide, Dil and Thaar - porters) provided an outstanding service. Suman was always professional and very responsive to the 100s of questions we had. The trek team were always there to help support with a “can do” attitude. Hupa Raj’s knowledge and experience was vital when I showed signs of AMS.
    I highly recommend this group for a safe, successful and fun expedition to EBC!

    Everest Base camp trek - March 2019

    We did an Everest Base camp trek for 12 days with Dream Heaven Adventures. we thoroughly enjoyed the trek and it was on almost most days with clear blue skies.

    The views were amazing. We were fortunate to have gone through Dream heaven adventures and Suman made sure everything was planned accordingly. all went well with Lukla flights and accommodation in lodges and the Kathmandu city tour we did at the end.

    We were also very lucky to have one of the best guide Huparaj Tamang leading us to EBC . He was very experienced knowledgeable and spoke good English. He looked after us very well and no request was too big for him. always cheerful and happy.

    I would highly recommend this guide. overall the services we received from Dream Heaven adventures were all excellent. Thank you Suman and Huparaj .

    Memorable EBC Trek 2018

    "Our EBC trip was indeed well-planned by Dream Heaven Adventure. Throughout the 12-day trek, we were in goods hands of our guide Huparaj, who provided great advice and ensured our safety as we progressively trekked in higher altitude.

    His constant reminders to us to keep a positive mindset and to walk at own pace helped our group, all of whom are amateur hikers, to complete the EBC trek as planned. Outside the trek, Dream Heaven Adventure had also made their best efforts to meet our needs both in Lukla and Kathmandu. I highly recommend the company to anyone who wishes to do the EBC trek, whether in solo or group."
