I have a quick plan to Visit Nepal. And he has contacted Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. (Chandra Gurung) on his number. He responded quickly and provided me with all the information about the Everest base camp, Lobuche Peak, and the Three Passes trek.

So I booked this trip with Himalaya Guide Nepal and we had a great time. I visited Khong Ma La Pass, Everest Base Camp, and Lobuche Peak summit then we back down crossed Cho La Pass, Gokyo Ri, Renjo La Pass, and then back to Kathmandu. We did this trip without any issues in 2023.

So, I recommend this trekking company for your trip to Nepal anytime.
