My spouse and I are from Canada and we recently completed the Everest Base Camp trek in April 2023. We did a lot of research before our trek and understand how difficult it is to choose a company as there are so many out there. Based on positive Trip Advisor reviews, we chose Nepal Hiking Team. Every time we contacted Ganga, the owner of Nepal Hiking Team, he always provided exceptional service. He answered all of our questions in a prompt and professional manner. Somehow, through email, he gave us comfort that we would be in good hands and, we were.
We were picked up at the airport by a guide and brought to the hotel where we met Ganga. The company provided a guided tour of Kathmandu before our trek, which was included in the price. This was very interesting. The guide, Kumar, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
During the trek, we were supported by our trusted guide, Gokul. He was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. He took very good care of us during the trek. He ensured we were happy and healthy each day. We felt comfortable with him and trusted his sound advice throughout the trek. Based on Gokul’s advice, we left early on the 8th day and reached Everest Base Camp, before large crowds arrived, which allowed us to enjoy the site and take pictures without being rushed. During the trek, we were also supported by our amazing porter who helped us carry some of our kit. While he did not speak English, he always greeted us with a warm Namaste. He joined us during our ascent to Base Camp and both he and our guide even offered to carry our day packs, which we kindly declined since they work hard enough.
Ganga was extremely professional. He would personally come to the hotel to ensure we were happy and satisfied and that the needs we met. We were completely satisfied and highly recommend Nepal Hiking Tram as they exceeded our expectations. We hope this helps you in your decision to choose a company for your experience in Nepal.
