Fantastic three passes trek

We arrived in Kathmandu after having previously emailed Trekking planners to get an idea of itinerary and cost. The response was fast and very detailed so we went and visited Depak once we were in Nepal. His organisation was amazing and he booked us in and sorted everything within one day.
The price was very reasonable and included a guide, porter, all food, tea, accommodation, transfers, sleeping bags, poles and a duffel bag.
We could call trekking planners at anytime and they were so reliable and helpful, even at the airport Depak has organised someone who worked there to help us check in and get to the gate.
Along the trek we were provided with fruit and Depak had pre purchased and sent with us, the accomodation was always very good and we were even given hot towels after a day of walking!
The guide that Depak organised for us was very helpful, knowledgable and spoke fantastic English. He got us through the three passes very well and gave us good tips about taking diamox, walking slowly, covering our heats to prevent headaches and drinking lots of water. He never rushed us and always went at our pace.
Along the way our guide Puri Sherpa also helped other travellers climb over boulders and showed them the way, he even let a solo trekker join us for two days (which we were ok with) and helped him with booking accomodation and get across a pass.
He organised crampons for us and always helped us down tricky parts of the trek. He was also very knowledgable about the Himalayan range and could tell us all of the mountain names, height and if they have been summited.
Trekking planners also let us store all of our luggage in Kathmandu, helped us with accomodation bookings and booked all of our busses across Nepal. Depak even got up at 5am to meet us and walk us to the bus station!
Thank you so much trekking planners, you make our experience so comfortable, easy and wonderful.
Would highly recommend !
