Why climb with Berg Adventures

Everest Base Camp Trekker Comments

“I have travelled, climbed, and trekked all over the world, and I give Berg Adventures my highest marks. Wally, of course, is a world class leader. One truly extraordinary thing about my experience was bonding with all the other Berg people, from Temba, Min, and Jeytha to the porters. An exceptional team! Not only were they highly competent, their genuine & heartfelt concern for us was obvious and ever-present. Also noteworthy were the vast & warm connections that Wally had in virtually every location that we visited. This made us feel like welcome guests literally every day!”

– H. Skade, California

“We had a fabulous trek with Temba and the entire team. They couldn’t have done more to accommodate us and make sure our trip was memorable. That evening in Pangboche, with the wonderful hospitality of Temba and Yangzing; Yangzing prepared a fabulous meal for us.

Jackson, our 13 year old grandson and the inspiration for the trip, said, on reaching Lukla “that was fun”. I couldn’t ask for anything more and am extremely grateful for the commitment, and contribution to the trip by Temba, Jahta, Min, the porters and all that were involved.”

– Jim B, Alberta, Canada

“With this being my first trek, Berg Adventures has a warm family environment from beginning to end. Wally Berg was an excellent leader as well has the entire staff at the office headquarters and on the Everest Base Camp trek. Wally made you feel like family and had all the comforts of a good home cooked meal as well! They were extremely supportive of my dietary needs and restrictions.

When someone asks about the trip, I light up with excitement to share all the wonderful experiences I had with the company. Every day was planned and packed with adventure! I look forward to planning my next trip with Berg Adventures International!”

“Good team, good challenges, excellent staff and support staff all around. It was great, I loved every minute of it!"”

“Truly excellent trip. The Sherpa guides were fantastic; patient, always helpful, and knowledgeable in everything from politics to vegetation. The whole Berg Adventures staff were brilliant and were quick to respond to our questions and always available to help.”

– Jeremy K., Geneva, Switzerland

“Our BAI and Sherpa guides were very professional and skilled during our trek, and with their excellent care, we all made it to base camp. Compared to my past travel experiences, Berg Adventures is a totally different travel company, providing us with an experience in both culture and adventure.”

– James H., Etobicoke, Ontario

"We all benefitted tremendously from Wally’s twenty years of building relationships and spreading goodwill in Nepal. Wally provided us with a lot of useful information about the Sherpa people and their culture on a daily basis, and he arranged for us to meet people like Frances Klatzel and Lama Geshe, who provided further insights into the people and culture of Nepal."

– Doug W., Hamilton, Ontario

"Last night we were served water buffalo cheeseburgers. One of the porters traveled a few hours both ways to pick up fresh buns and banana pie!

Over and over again we have been blown away by the dedication and personal care of the Berg Adventure’s Staff - both local and in Canada. Head guide, Ang Temba’s knowledge, leadership and personality have given us special insight into the Khumbu region, Sherpa culture and mountaineering.

Seeing other trekking groups in the mountains made us appreciate the top to bottom effort from the Berg Adventures team. Guides Ang Temba and Min Badur are an excellent team, and the whole team was hard-working and friendly. Two weeks in the Khumbu is a challenging and demanding undertaking, and we were very lucky to have the support we received from the Berg team. Thank you very much from the four of us!"

"Do not change a thing, the trip was perfect! The food, staff, local knowledge and connections can not be matched by any other company. We had fresh sushi at 17,000 feet, unbelievable! The trip was a dream come true which I will never forget."

– Deke O., Jacksonville, North Carolina

"If you have a thirst for adventure and physical challenges I strongly recommend that you contact Berg Adventures International. My decision to go to Everest Base Camp with Wally in the Spring of 2005 was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I will never forget standing on a rock with the tents of Base Camp below me and the Khumbu Icefall at my feet."

– Mark G., Irvine, California
