The entire experience with Nepal Hiking Team was outstanding!! It started when we arrived and they proposed an alternative route to get us hiking to our destination because planes were not flying to Lukla.
Our guide Sagar and porters Dumbar and Bikash were tremendously helpful and we quickly became friends.
The team really shined when I developed a severe shortness of breath going up Renjo La Pass and was helped by Sagar and the porters.
The next day when the shortness of breath continued, Sagar was able to obtain a horse for the last 5 miles to Namche Bazaar. Overnight Sagar contacted a company manager, Balaram, who contacted the travel insurance company and arranged for a helicopter back to Kathmandu.
While hospitalized in Kathmandu for tests and observation, Balaram came by to check on my condition. After release, Balaram arranged for a car to take me back to the hospital for a final checkup and clearance to fly. Sagar and Dumbar also checked on my condition frequently.
The professionalism and support of the Nepal Hiking Team staff was magnificent.
