I did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team with my family on the December of last year. I know I am about half a year late in doing a proper review of the trek but with the experience I had, I figured I might as express my thoughts on it. It was, without any room for hesitation, one of the best treks that I and my family had the pleasure of experiencing. From the very initial moments of mere e-mails, Nepal Hiking Team showed that they were at the top of their niche. With a friendly and fast replies to all of the mail, we were able to get a good sense of what we were getting ourselves into. Than as the time finally came for us to go to Nepal we were greeted at the airport with the hospitality and welcome that Nepalese people are known for. With flower garlands and silk scarves, we were taken to our hotel room in Thamel, one of the most colorful and lively street we had the fortune of seeing. Finally, as the trek started, we were taken good care of throughout. From the services like accommodations, the transportation and the meals to the demeanor of the guide and the porters who accompanied us, we were made to feel comfortable and well-taken care of.
The sights of the mountains throughout the trek were amazing. Luckily, the weather was nice throughout the trek and the views of the landscape was amazing and quite surreal. This mixed with the fact that we had the chance of exploring and visiting the monastery at Tengboche and the small mani-stone walls scattered throughout the land made the trek exotic for us. Experiencing the culture and the rituals of the Nepali people of the Himalayas and then finally trekking to the base camp of Everest was a dream come true for my family. Then as we hiked to Gorekshep and then to Kalapathar, the views of Mount Everest as well as other peaks like the Ama Dablam and the Lhotse were just spectacular!
I am glad that we went with Nepal Hiking Team for our trek. It was well-managed and the arrangements were splendid. We were very comfortable throughout and had no complains about it. The memories of the trek are still fresh in my mind and my children still talk about Nepal with fond memories. Thank You Nepal Hiking Team for this arrangement and for making it a very good one.
