A spectacular and unforgettable adventure to Everest Base Camp

On returning home from my trip to Everest, people ask me “how was it?”. I always pause and think: “where do I start? The beautiful forests, the wonderful sounds of yak bells, the things I learnt from my guide…?” . There was so much awesomeness, it’s very difficult to convey what happened in the two and a bit weeks I had with Trekking Planner.
A good start is Trekking Planner’s organisation and friendliness. From the very first contact I made with Dipak there was a good tailoring of the trek to our needs. All matters were well explained and no stone left unturned in Trekking Planner’s organisation. The adjustment of the holiday to our needs was constant throughout, with our guide (Dibash) was able to change our programme throughout the trek to adapt to all our wishes. He and Dipak acted in a caring and friendly manner throughout the trip.
At one point I became ill near the Base Camp, Dibash took excellent care of me in a calm manner ensuring I reached my goal safely. I am extremely appreciative of this mature and high-efficacy treatment.
The accommodation was excellent the whole way up the mountain, the food and drinks options were good (and very filling – I now have a new found love for Dal Baht and yak meat!) and there was plenty of opportunity to meet other travellers and have interesting convivial conversation. Our guide, Dibash, became both a friend as well as our guide 🙂 He was extremely knowledgeable about the environment, enlightening us on our trek on stupas, mountain eights, tibetan culture, and plants. Truly a Renaissance man of the Himalayas!
I heartily recommend anyone considering a trip the Himalayas find these guys to get the most memorable experiences out of your time!
