Oh, where to begin with my incredible experience in Nepal? I was part of a group of four professors from a US university, and we went to this breathtaking country partly for research and partly to check out the possibility of bringing students back with us. The entire experience was just something out of a dream, and I have to give massive credit to the Nepal Hiking Team for that.
Our guide, Prakash, was an absolute star. I can't emphasize enough how much he took care of us during our trek to Khumjung village. It's hard to put into words how much his knowledge, flexibility, enthusiasm, and kindness meant to us, especially when the going got tough with the altitude and the steep paths. He was always there, encouraging and guiding us.
And then there was Ganga and the whole Nepal Hiking Team team. They thought of everything! From picking us up at the airport to booking hotels, planning meals, arranging flights, and even making sure we had hot showers waiting for us after a long day's trek - they nailed it all.
I mean, everything was just so smooth. We were able to focus on our research and enjoy the stunning views without worrying about the logistics. They handled it all, and they handled it brilliantly.
I have to say, if you're thinking about going to Nepal for hiking, these are the people to go with. Their attention to detail is unmatched, and they really make you feel special. It's not just about the hike; it's about the experience, the culture, the kindness, and the memories that will stick with me forever.
So, a big thank you to Prakash, Ganga, and everyone at the Nepal Hiking Team. You guys are the best, and I can't wait for the next adventure!
