Alistair Genovese, ELTON DR ZAMMIT STREET BALZAN MALTA
Right from the get go, when I arrived at the airport, the people from the agency were there to help me out. I took a solo trip of the Everest base Camp Trek, and the whole journey was amazing. I loved the sightseeing tour they provided on the second day of my excursion. I loved the city of Kathmandu; it was astonishing to see the some of the effects of the earthquake round the city while we were travelling from a location to another, while looking at the heritage sites. The culture of the people is really unique, and so different from where I am. It was nice to experience these differences. Then, the trek started when I flew to Lukla, and as they mentioned, the flight was very pretty to look at from my window on the plane. The natural surroundings at Namche, and Pheriche were amazing, it was marvelous and I liked trekking along those downtrodden trails. I actually got to touch a small little house donkey breed too, which was a first for me! I liked drinking buttered tea on those tiny tea houses along my trek as well. The point is, the trek was an amazing way for me to experience the cultures and the views of a new wonderful place. I really recommend visiting Nepal to anyone who is looking for places to go in their next vacation or whatever. The remote isolated villages really look like something that’s just been there since thousands of years, not touched by any external forces or anything, it was surreal. And of course, the mountains itself. The whole journey, especially at Namche, and I think the national Park at Sagarmatha as well, was brilliant. The mountains are so beautiful and trekking on them is crazy!
Nepal Hiking Team really helped me too, with the trek. I came across them while I was browsing a lot of different websites, and they seem worthy, so, I decided to give them a try. And I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was done seamlessly, and I had a great time!
