Nepal has always held a fascination for me. So when I decided that I wanted to attempt the EBC trek, I began looking around for a company to provide me with what I needed. I found Nepal Hiking Team on Google and off I went.
Even amongst the Nepalese, who are naturally very friendly and hosting, the NH team are standouts. From the second I walked out of the airport to the instant I left, they were absolutely perfect. They picked me up, kept me informed, and hosted me perfectly.
I was provided with a tour guide, Anuz, by the company who gave me a fantastic tour of the city. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely good company. As I was by myself, I appreciated the patience he displayed and his natural manner.
On the morning of the trek I was picked up by Mr. Ganga, who made sure that I got on my flight to Lukla! In an airport where there can be chaos at very crucial times, he absolutely did everything to ensure that I got on that flight. That was definitely a moment where I was pleased that I chose this company.
My guide, Raj was an absolutely perfect guide. He was great company, very knowledgeable, and above all, an EXCELLENT guide. He took care of me, walked at my pace, assisted me with everything from advice to camerawork, and made sure that I was fed and looked after at all the lodges we stayed at. A guide in Nepal is more than a guide. They are your waiter, companion, advisor and friend. And Raj was all of these things and more. Make sure that you ask for him!
Ganga and his team are an incredible bunch of people and very good at what they do. When you are trekking or travelling in the Himalayan Mountains, it is crucial that you have experience behind you. Also, the value I got for my money was well beyond expectation. In fact, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them as the first choice, or using them again myself.
