We did a private trekking to EBC with Nepal Hiking Team the first week of November 2022. It was an amazing trip that we will always cherish! Our experience with the Nepal Hiking Group was A+. From Ganga the owner of Nepal Hiking Group to their porter Chandru did an outstanding job in planning everything perfectly. From airport pick-up on the first day to the departure from Kathmandu on the last day was done on time.
Our trekking guide Arun, his assistant Deepak, and porters Dhan and Chandru made sure that our team of 4 not only succeeded in reaching the base camp but also accommodated all our unending requests enthusiastically never once losing their patience. The help extended by them on the trail and at the tea houses is greatly appreciated. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. One example is that the porters Chandru and Dhan always returned to the trail after dropping their bags in the tea houses and then carried our bags if needed and gave us a helping hand in climbing steep hills etc.
Our guide Arun was very knowledgeable and a patient gentleman. Some other guides we met on the trail told us that he is one of the top 10 guides in Nepal. They definitely were not exaggerating, Nepal Hiking Group made arrangement for us to stay at the Woodapple Hotel in Thamel area of Kathamandu and we were extremely happy with the upgraded rooms provided and the food at the hotel. We highly recommend engaging Nepal Hiking Group to anyone thinking of hiking to EBC.
