Everest Base Camp Trek – April 2018
Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018. My friend and I recently returned from EBC on a trek organized by Chandra at Himalaya Guide Nepal and I would have to say that it was one of the best trips of my life.
Right from the start when I contacted him via email Chandra was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any concerns or questions we had.
When we arrived (very late) in Kathmandu, representatives were waiting for us at the airport and ferried us to our hotel with no hassle, before our sightseeing trip around Kathmandu the next day. It was a very nice, but long, day but our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable.
Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018, Then the trek itself. It goes without saying that the scenery is unbelievable, but what else can I say except it was amazing. Our guide Nurbu and porter Lakpa took care of absolutely everything. And made us feel very welcome throughout the whole 12 days. Nurbu was extremely informative, very patient (especially with my friend, who was rather slow). With most of all great fun to be with. We looked forward to his nightly briefing with eager anticipation!
Everything ran like clockwork, with breaks, meal times and teahouses seamlessly organized. So, that we never had to worry about a thing the whole trek.
The only problem we had with flights in and out of Lukla (we ended up paying extra for helicopter trips due to time constraints). But even then Chandra organized a full refund for our canceled plane flights with no questions asked.
Then when we got back to Katmandu, Chandra took care of us once more, checking to see if we were ok and taking us for a celebration dinner.
What made it more special were the little touches, the fresh fruit after dinner each night. The plaque presented to us upon completion and the silk scarf given to us. We left for the airport after an exhausting, but a highly enjoyable 15-day trip.
It was a superb experience. So, I would highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal to anyone wishing to trek the EBC route.
