Lakpa is far from your typical mountain guide. He is careful, methodical, knowledgeable and also, a joy to be around. We have been lucky enough to have Lakpa train us in mountaineering skills and take us up a very challenging peak. When we do our next high altitude mountain, we will only use him. You have so many choices when it comes to companies and guides. Lakpa TRULY is the best of the best. 5 stars are not enough to be able to say that this is a person that you would trust with your life on a mountain.

I have had the pleasure of being a client of Lakpa Sherpa on two expeditions in the Nepal Himalaya. I have also had the honor of climbing with and sharing basecamp with Chris Burke on one of those expeditions. Lakpa is so plugged into the network of Sherpa and other guides he can seemingly pull off the impossible and usually in shortorder. Chris has as much experience on the big peaks of the world as any person you will find and the two of them both possess easy-going person...

A man of few words and always the right ones. Nature is his home and the mountain is his soul. You feel it every single step towards the summit and back. He makes the climp to become easy, safe and even fun when there is no more air to breathe or energy left in your body....he is one of the most nobel person I have ever met and friend I will ever get.

We enjoyed an incredible trek that Lakpa organised and lead for us to Everest Base Camp. His attention to detail and care for us as his clients was exemplary. The schedule that he developed was flexible, enabling changes to be made as we trekked to Base Camp. We were never rushed and our health was placed as top priority. Personally I found the suspension bridges to be incredibly confronting...with Lakpa's calmness and guidance I was able to navigate them all with relative ease. I have no hesitation in recommending Expedition Base to all our friends and family.

I’m slightly biased – But, even if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t climb with anyone else. Lakpa and his guides are highly skilled and highly professional - no short cuts, excellent service and logistics, often facilitating success on the mountains and trails for not only their own clients, but also others.
