The tour itself is super cool. Yes, it is a whirlwind, you are constantly on the go, moving from one place to another and you get to see only a small portion of the local wonders but if you are time constrained – this is a great way to see many places in a short time. The salt flats were probably my favourite...
The physical challenge is moderate but the high altitudes and dry/dusty/salty air could present challenges.
A word of caution regarding booking it with Bamba Experience: be ready for screw-ups. I was not picked up in an airport in the middle of the night contrarily to the confirmed plan, twice not picked up for a local activity.
I managed to arrange for the alternatives myself (the phone number and the online contacts they provide for *urgent* contacts are of no use – all you get is a voicemail and/or reply many hours later when it would be too late anyways as there is no slack in the schedule). Bamba reimbursed me for the extra expenses I incurred in some of these cases but not in all.
The instructions Bamba provided were incomplete; they have not mentioned some important details that would have put me in trouble if it weren't for my fellow travellers who booked same activities through other agencies (and these agencies specifically instructed them what to prepare).

We did a 18 day tour through Belize/Mexico and Guatemala. Heaps of mistakes on the vouchers. ( wrong times, prices, confirmation numbers and durations) No availability on 1 of the busses so we had to arrange our own transport. And the big suprise in the end they booked us on a transfer from Palenque to Guatemala which nearly costs our lives.

We were involved in a bus accident and Bamba did simply nothing. We emailed a couple of questions and there was no serieus answer you will expect from a company like this.

After more than a week and a 3 page letter I got their attention and they offered a refund. Good to receive a little refund of the huge amount we paid for a ruined holiday... think twice to book

Bamba is just the best way to discover a country individually. While not worrying about the stress of buying your next bus/plane ticket or trip you can just relax and enjoy those unforgettable moments of travelling, which will stay in your mind forever.

Lantang valley trek was amazing. Everything was well managed and easy going. Sunrise adventure trek was a wonderful company they make everything was sure and safe. So I would like to come next time with this company for Everest base camp trek. I highly recommend everyone to use this company.

We had a wonderful experience with Sunrise Adventure Trek on our Annapurna Circuit trek last month. Our guide Ramesh was very good and very knowledgeable about the region, culture, flora fauna . Great value for money, with comfortable accommodation and outstanding food. I'd definitely use this company again.

My friend and I recently traveled to Nepal from the United States and had an amazing experience trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with sunrise adventure travel! We met Suresh in Kathmandu and he was incredibly helpful in setting up our trek and accommodation/activities in Pokhara post trek. Our guide, Palman (aka Paul) was amazing as well!! He was knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and kept us laughing with his hilarious sense of humor (which matched our own spot on!). Everything worked out exactly as Suresh promised that it would and he checked in before and after the trek to make sure that we were pleased with how things were going. We definitely felt that we were in good hands with both gentleman and would highly recommend Sunrise Adventure Travel. The prices were very fair and our experience was unbeatable. Thanks again, SAT!

About Sunrise Adventure

Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

Who Travels With Them?

Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

Where Do They Operate?

Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

Why Travel With Them?

Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.
